Marie Prevost (8. novembar 1896 – 21. januar 1937) bila je kanadsko-američka filmska glumica, poznata kao zvijezda nijemih romantičnih komedija, ali i po tragičnoj smrti od posljedica alkoholizma.

Rodila se kao Marie Bickford Dunn u Kanadi, da bi se nakon smrti oca s majkom i očuhom preselila u SAD i konačno skrasila u Los Angelesu. Godine 1915. je dobila posao sekretarice u Sennettovoj kompaniji Keystone Studios. Sennett ju je tamo zapazio i angažirao kao jednu od svojih "kupaćih ljepotica" ("Bathing Beauties") u nizu kratkih komedija. Kasnije je počela nastupati u cjelovečernjim filmovima, prvo za Universal Pictures, a potom za Warner Bros.. Za karijeru joj se kobnim pokazao film The Beautiful and Damned iz 1922. godine. Pokušaj Jacka Warnera da stvori dodatni publicitet vijestima o njenom vjenčanju za filmskog partnera Kennetha Harlana se pretvorio u fijasko, kada se ispostavilo da je Prevost od 1918. bila u tajnom braku sa Sonnyjem Gerkeom, te je optužena za bigamiju. Warner joj je nikada nije oprostio izloženost skandalu, te joj je odlučio ne obnoviti ugovor 1926. godine. Iste je godine zapala u depresiju nakon smrti majke u prometnoj nesreći, a sljedeće godine ju je ostavio Harlan, za koga se bila u međuvremenu udala. Prevost je nakon toga odala piću te počela dobijati na težini i gubiti uloge. Umrla je 21. januara, ali je pronađena tek dva dana kasnije kada je susjede uznemirio njen pas Maxie. Kenneth Anger je kasnije u svojoj kontroverznoj knjizi Hollywood Babylon tvrdio da je gladni Maxie pojeo dio njenog trupla, ali su kasniji historičari taj navod opovrgli. U svakom slučaju, smrt Marie Prevost je potakla niz hollywoodskih glumaca da nekoliko godina kasnije osnuju Motion Picture & Television Country House and Hospital, instituciju posvećenu zbrinjavanju siromašnih i bolesnih kolega.

In popular culture[uredi - уреди | uredi kôd]

  • Prevost's death was featured in the book Hollywood Babylon, by Kenneth Anger. In the book, Anger claims Prevost's dog consumed her remains over the ensuing days to survive. However, Anger's claims that Prevost's dog made "mincemeat out of his mistress",[1] are false. While Prevost's pet dachshund Maxie did bite her legs in an effort to wake her, the dog did not attempt to eat her body.[2]
  • Nick Lowe's song "Marie Provost" [sic] from the 1978 album Jesus of Cool details her life and Anger's account of her death. The song includes the lyric "She was a winner/Who became the doggie's dinner".[3]
