This chapter discusses Ann and Leslie’s return to Hollywood, her hiring Myron Selznick as her new agent, and Warner Bros. choosing to maintain her long-term contract within the studio system. This chapter also begins to explore Ann and Leslie’s private lives and notes their early attempts at living a fairly isolated existence by moving to a ranch in the Van Nuys neighborhood of the San Fernando Valley and engaging in peculiar hobbies like bacteriology. Also covered is Ann’s loanout Paramount Pictures for The Way to Love, costarring Maurice Chevalier along with College Coach, the first film Ann had made with Warner Bros. in well over a year.

Keywords:   long-term contract, studio system, Myron Selznick, bacteriology, Paramount, Maurice Chevalier, Van Nuys
