The Murder of Ince
3 May 2016 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

E! Mysteries & Scandals" William Randolph Hearst (1998)

Steven Peros (playwrite), Edward Epstein (film historian), Ben Proctor (author), Bob Birchard (film historian), Mark Wanamaker (film historian), Patricia Hearst and relatives of Thomas Ince are interviewed about the mystery surrounding Ince's murder and whether or not William Randolph Hearst was behind it.

The Hearst-Ince-Marion Davies incident has become one of the biggest mysteries in Hollywood history. The murder of Ince was rumored for decades yet most seem to think that it wasn't murder and instead it was just an illness. This incident has become one of the biggest conspiracies in Hollywood and makes for an excellent episode. There are a lot of great details shared about what was believed to have happened that night and we get to hear from relatives of both Hearst and Ince. If you're a fan of mysteries then this here is a must see as there's some great stuff on display. Most film buffs will know all about the Ince case but it makes for some good drama.
