The Leonards move into the luxurious Hotel Des Artistes and entertain lavishly. She works with new directors, Leonce Perret and George Fitzmaurice in such screen hits as The Twin Pawns, The A.B.C. of Love, On with the Dance, and The Right to Love. The Leonards sailed for Europe on a belated honeymoon. In Paris, Murray lunches with Olive Thomas before Thomas’ mysterious death after drinking mercury bichloride. While in the French capital, Murray undergoes a cosmetic procedure that takes years off her appearance.
