    She abruptly left MGM in 1933 under unclear circumstances.
    In old age she appeared in several schlocky horror films.
    A reporter in 2000 wrote she was stuck in the 1920's like Norma Desmond in 'Sunset Boulevard.'

Why she might not be annoying:

    She easily made the transition to sound.
    In her heyday she received over 10,000 fan letters a week.
    MGM may have let her go for refusing to sleep with Irving Thalberg.
    She made a comeback in 1998 after being absent from movies for over 60 years.
    She is one of very few silent film stars whose career extended into the 21st century.
