This chapter details Ann’s sudden departure from Los Angeles to New York, and ultimately to Europe, for an extended honeymoon. Included in the discussion are the reactions of Warner Bros. and Anna Lehr to Dvorak walking out on her contract, along with the immediate media backlash to Ann publicly disputing her salary and the studio system in general under the advisement of Leslie Fenton and her agent Charles Feldman. Also included are Dvorak’s justifications for her actions, many of which came retroactively.

Keywords:   walkout, studio system, Charles Feldman, media backlash, salary dispute
