Inspired by true events, Hollywood Girl: The Peg Entwistle Story depicts the tragic ending of Peg Entwistle's life. An aspiring film actress and Broadway muse, Entwistle is mostly known for her infamous and fatal jump off the Hollywood(land) sign in 1932. Written & directed by James Pomichter, the film is a creative imagination of Entwistle's last day, leading up to the moment of her untimely death.
Laura Liguori, who stars in the film as Entwistle, conceived the idea for the film while sitting on her balcony looking up at the Hollywood sign. Liguori had just received news that she lost a role she anticipated getting and felt inspired to share Peg's story.
Supporting roles include veteran actor, Michael Rotthaar as Charles Entwistle, James Pomichter as Robert Entwistle and cameos from Maureen Teefy (Grease 2, Fame, Supergirl), Will Rotthaar (Battle Los Angeles, Killing Kennedy), and Dan Riordan (Dream Girls, Ed Wood).
