Peg Entwistle and The Hollywood Sign


In a series of essays, Hope Anderson explores the life and death of Peg Entwistle, a talented young actress who became the only person to have committed suicide off the Hollywood Sign. In discussing the making of her short film, "Peg Entwistle's Last Walk," which depicts the actress's last hour in 1932; the psychology of suicide by jumping; and the transformation of the Hollywood Sign from billboard to icon, Anderson separates truth from fiction to arrive at new conclusions about Entwistle and the Sign she made famous.
