Hearst and Davies
Fascinating biography of the complex William Randolph Hearst. This two-part documentary on PBS’ American Experience series looks at Hearst’s life as a young man, a newspaper publisher, a politician, a movie producer, and as a collector of art.

Most interesting and probably the least publicized arc of Hearst’s career was his work as a film producer, especially with the films of Marion Davies, his mistress/companion/business partner of more than 30 years.

While the documentary highlights the great success of WHEN KNIGHTHOOD WAS IN FLOWER in 1922, it fails to mention the equally successful LITTLE OLD NEW YORK in 1923. These two films made a superstar of Davies and established Hearst as a major film producer … big enough to interest the newly formed MGM in 1924 to join forces as a producing and distribution partner (a partnership that lasted for a decade).

The documentary harps too much on Davies’s drinking problem and continues to spread false information about the success of her her films, stating at one point “in the early 1930s” seven of her nine last films were flops. Ain’t true.

In the late 1920s, Hearst and Davies scored with classics like THE PATSY and SHOW PEOPLE and early talkies like MARIANNE and THE HOLLYWOOD REVUE OF 1929 were solid hits.

The documentary seems rather skewed toward favoring Hearst’s estranged wife Millicent, a former show girl who, with Hearst’s money, ascended to the social elite of New York and became (again with Hearst’s money) a noted philanthropist. As a social lioness, she refused to divorce Hearst and clung to the title of Mrs. Hearst.

Meanwhile, back in the real world, Davies (with her own money) founded several children’s clinics (including one at UCLA which bears her name), and had a successful business career (not mentioned in the documentary) well into the 1950s that included buying and running the Desert Inn in Palm Springs and erecting the Davies Building skyscraper in New York. It’s still there.

Hearst enjoyed being a film producer and aside from the films of Marion Davies, also produced films for silent stars like Alma Rubens, Matt Moore, Seena Owen, Norman Kerry, Forrest Stanley, Anita Stewart, Colleen Moore, and Lionel Barrymore.

The documentary is largely based on David Nasaw’s excellent biography of Hearst from 2000 called “The Chief” and he appears as a talking head along with two of Hearst’s grandsons. I never heard of any of the other talking heads.

Bottom line: the documentary is filled with information and photos and film clips (not identified) and is a deep dive into the life of a complex and fascinating man who had his faults. Well worth watching!

Poor Commentary Editing (Less is More)
The breadth, pace and narration is really quite good. Where this goes wrong – and incredibly wrong – is in the editing of the commentary. Cut half of it, at least, and it would have been a fine documentary. If you want to see the difference between this and a master class in commentary, watch Ric Burns “New York”. That’s poetry. This is pulp.
