Dolores keeps on working, playing a series of mother parts. She marries Vruwink when his divorce becomes final. Maurice once again is involved in scandal, marrying Ruth Reeves, a Central Casting employee less than half his age. His pathological jealousy capsizes the marriage almost immediately, and they divorce shortly thereafter. In between sanitarium visits, Helene marries Lee Le Blanc, a penniless drifter who works in his aunt’s bar. In February 1941, to her astonishment after repeatedly being told she couldn’t have children, Helene gives birth to a daughter, Deirdre.

Keywords:   Ruth Reeves, Maurice’s jealousy, Lee Le Blanc, Deirdre, mother roles
