Jack builds a citadel atop Beverly Crest. He divorces his second wife so he can marry Dolores before the Hollywood press finds out they’ve been seeing each other for years. Dolores’s film career reaches its zenith with Noah’s Ark, the Michael Curtiz film that mangles a host of extras and blasts her with thousands of gallons of water during the flood scenes. For once, Helene outshines her sister as the first actress to star in an all-talking picture, The Lights of New York, which, despite its novelty, fails to revive her fading career.

Keywords:   Citadel, Beverly Crest, Noah’s Ark, Michael Curtiz, The Lights of New York
