Orson Welles offers Dolores the role of Isabel Minifer in The Magnificent Ambersons. John Barrymore dies and the surviving Costellos attend his funeral, save for Dolores. She and Vruwink buy a ranch in Fallbrook, California, and raise rabbits for the war effort. Maurice and Helene appear as extras together in a King Vidor film but don’t make the final cut. Because of Helene’s illness and Le Blanc’s war involvement, Dolores agrees to care for Deirdre full time. Her relationship with Le Blanc sours when he reneges on his promise to pay her child support. Helene discovers Le Blanc is only using her to go to bat for him with Zanuck at Fox, where he is working as a cartoonist, and leaves him.

Keywords:   Orson Welles, The Magnificent Ambersons, Fallbrook ranch, Darryl Zanuck
