Irving Thalberg is yet another famous person who appeared in this paper and later died young: he passed away from pneumonia in 1936, at the age of 37, after returning from a vacation in Monterey, California. He had previously suffered a heart attack at the age of 25 due to overwork.

Norma Shearer (1902-1983) was a Canadian by birth, growing up in Montreal. She was eventually nominated for five Academy Awards. She retired from movie making in 1942.
