In some cases, like "The Star-Spangled Banner", most audiences are aware that it is a longer work with multiple verses but few can say that they know the words. In other cases, most audiences are unaware that the song has more than one verse, which can be a surprise when, as in Woody Guthrie 's "This Land is Your Land," the second verse takes the song in a much different direction than the first. It can be difficult to distinguish this trope from the similar Chorus-Only Song ; the difference is that in the Chorus-Only Song the chorus is known but no one remembers the verse, while in this trope the first verse is known but no one remembers the others. Sheet music publishers who print only the familiar stanzas can be blamed for this.
Share Shares 26 Today, silent movies appear to have an old-timey innocence about them. Villains twirled mustaches, and damsels were always in distress but always rescued by a handsome hero at the last moment.
Even the tramps seemed whimsical. However, behind the camera, the burgeoning film industry was decadent and dissolute. Movie stars made fantastic amounts of money and spent it wildly, mostly, it seems, on drink and drugs. Studios tried hard to keep the scandals out of the press and present a wholesome family image, working their publicity departments at full stretch to not only promote the films but protect their stars.
Wikipedia At the height of the silent era, William Desmond Taylor was riding high. A noted film director, he directed 60 films and acted in But on February 1,he was murdered by an unknown assailant.
The scandal that followed almost destroyed the fledgling movie industry.
Taylor had been shot in his home. There was no sign of a break-in, and cash was found on his body and in the house, which seemed to rule out a burglary gone wrong.
Witnesses said that the movie star Mabel Normand had been with him that evening, and she was immediately suspected. A large number of rumors circulated about the lifestyle of both Taylor and Normand, including drug dealing, sexual perversion, and even Satanism. The appearance of the wife and child whom he had deserted in added fuel to the fire.
There was a long list of suspects as well as people who confessed to the murder despite appearing to have never met Taylor. Mabel Normand was among the chief suspects, and her career never really recovered. Her life was always colorful.
She was at one time kidnapped by her own sister. Her public success was not mirrored in her private life, however. She was married at least four times and had a son whose existence she kept secret.
She claimed to sleep for only two hours a night. Whether her rumored drug addiction or her bizarre dietary regimens contributed to her insomnia is unclear. La Marr, despite her beauty, began to fall out of favor with the studios but continued to work regardless, desperate to regain her popularity.
Even a terminal lung condition could not prevent her from working. Finally, one day, she collapsed on set.

It was a sad end to an illustrious career. She won her first movie contract in and soon met and married the actor Jack Pickford. The couple seemed to have a glamorous life, though there were signs that, perhaps due to long work-induced separations, things were not going well.
It was mercury bichloride, a toxic medication prescribed to Pickford to treat his syphilis. Despite attempts to revive her, Olive Thomas died soon after. She was 25 years old. He created the first movie studio and later went on to form Paramount Pictures.Before writing their second verse, I suggested the attendees think about what happened next, or what else happened, so they would be advancing their story, instead of rehashing information already presented in the first verse.
