Maurice brings with him to Hollywood a diary in which he confides his rage and revulsion at the fact of his demotion from head-of-household to lowly chauffeur, now having to drive his wife and daughters wherever they wish to go. Without an income of his own he has to do as they say, even after discovering that his twenty-two-year-old daughter Dolores had become romantically involved with forty-three-year-old, hard-drinking Jack Barrymore. The result is a steadily escalating domestic war that takes another two years to reach the crisis point. Meanwhile, Dolores continues her rise into the front ranks of Hollywood stars. Helene lags behind, but holds her own.

Keywords:   rage-filled diary, domestic war, Jack Barrymore, crisis point
