Maurice’s popularity is already on the wane in 1913, before he makes matters worse by physically assaulting Mae in a drunken rage and grabbing the attention of the press. The following year he’s involved inanother violent altercation, this one with a flagman at a railroad crossing, and makes the papers yet again. Despite his now flagging career, Maurice buys an expensive piece of residential property in Bayside, Long Island, and the family moves in. Shortly after that, Maurice hasa falling out with Vitagraph, mostly due to his drinking, and finds himself disastrously unemployed.
