Dolores puts her foot down and takes control of Jack’s drinking. While shooting a retake for the film Counsellor at Law, Jack goes up in his lines fifty-four times. Dolores tricks him into going to the hospital, where she has him temporarily committed for psychiatric evaluation. Jack is fired from his next picture because he can’t memorize his lines, and Dolores again takes drastic action. Before departing on a long sea voyage, she removes the alcoholic beverages from Jack’s boat. Deprived of liquor, he goes berserk, breaking his nurse’s nose and roughing up Dolores. Convinced she’s plotting again to have him committed, he absconds to the East Coast abruptly in a panicked attempt to get as far away from his wife as possible.

Keywords:   Counsellor at Law, fifty-four takes, committed, goes berserk
