Mayo Methot

  1. Beverly Roberts, Main Street Lawyer, 1938.       Republic Pictures did not hold the Mayo when she was out after a single day due, officially, acute indigestion. (aka reading the script). Before leaving her for Lauren Bacall, Humphrey Bogart’s turbulent 1938-1945 marriage to the violent Methot had them known as The Battling Bogarts. She beat him during her alcoholic lows – and drunkenly waved a pistol  around Bogie and guests at one of their dinner parties. Acute indigestion, indeed!
