Maurice retires to the Motion Picture Country Home, where he will spend the rest of his life. After her father is awarded custody, Deirdre is shuffled around before being reunited with her mother at the Wolff Sanitarium. In October 1950, Maurice suffers a massive heart attack, from which he never entirely regains consciousness. He dies in the hospital the morning of the 29th. Vruwink is fed up with Dolores’s drinking and moves out. After a brief reconciliation he leaves again and she files for divorce. Following a short-lived attempt at stage acting, she retreats to an empty house and the relative solace of her drinking.

Keywords:   Wolff Sanitarium, Maurice’s death, John Blyth Barrymore
