The seven-scene arrangement focuses on the up and coming film Peg, roused by the demise of British on-screen character Peg Entwistle who murdered herself by hopping off the Hollywoodland sign in 1932.

In the event that it wasn’t clear at this point, Peg depends on a genuine story yet not a genuine film: Peg Entwistle, a British stage and screen entertainer whose genuine name was “Millicent Lillian Entwistle,” moved to Los Angeles in May 1932 to act in Robert Brent’s play The Mad Hopes. After the play shut in June, Entwistle could just look for some kind of employment on one film, Thirteen Women, which bombarded in the cinematic world and didn’t get any basic praise.
