In 1927 and 1928, John Gilbert stars in The Show, Man Woman and Sin (with Broadway great Jeanne Eagels), Love and A Woman of Affairs (both with Garbo), The Masks of the Devil, Twelve Miles Out and Four Walls (both with young Joan Crawford) and The Cossacks. A vicious hatchet-job is printed on him in Vanity Fair, and Gilbert's drinking and emotional problems begin to interfere with his life and career; he is briefly arrested in 1927, and is hospitalized for what is probably alcohol-related illnesses. His romance with Garbo runs hot and cold and the two separate. In late 1928 he signs a new contract with MGM, at $250,000 per picture. His last silent film is Desert Nights (1929).
