Pearl White Withdraws as Candidate for Assembly -- August 29, 2019

Moving Picture World, 30-August-1919
Having appeared in ten serials between 1914 and 1919, Pearl must have gotten tired of the format. Perhaps the format had also grown tired of her. She made ten features for the Fox Film Corporation between 1919 and 1922. Sadly, her popularity waned.

Robert W Chambers, author of The Black Secret, is famous for the book of short stories The King in Yellow.

"Scores of novel and scenarios were rejected before the choice finally fell upon the story as being peculiarly adapted to Pearl White's talents."

Pearl White's second Fox feature would be based on a story by Hiram Percy Maxim, who was the son of inventor Sir Hiram Maxim.

Pearl White wanted to run for the New York State Assembly, but her work schedule did not permit it. "It is my sincere desire to see some other woman in Queens run for this important office. I intend not only to vote at the next election, but to use all the influence at my command to help elect a woman candidate if she runs."

"This second starring vehicle...was written by Hiram Percy Maxim especially for Pearl White. Special stress is laid on the fact that this big dramatic work was created after the author's protracted personal study of the star's work."
