The Secret Love Shack Suicide Pact


Kid McCoy Down For The Count


Episode 427 documents a dramatic fall from grace when a beloved American prizefighter and silent film star falls for a married woman, who seemed destined to be his ninth or tenth wife. His marital history is as complicated and murky as her business dealings, and their affair takes a tragic turn late one hot august night.


Culled from the historic pages of the Los Angeles Times and other newspapers of the era.
