Written and directed by Pomichter, the film tells the tragic story of Peg Entwistle, an aspiring film actress and Broadway muse, Entwistle is mostly known for her infamous and fatal jump off the Hollywood(land) sign in 1932.
“I wanted to show her as a vulnerable, passionate young woman, one who fell victim to despair as so many others did in that time. And had she just held on for a little while longer, things would have turned around for the better,” he said.
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.
The cast includes Michael Rothhaar (“The Nutty Professor”), Pomichter himself as Peg’s father along with cameos from Maureen Teefy (“Grease 2”), Will Rotthaar (“Battle Los Angeles”), and Dan Riordan (“Dream Girls”).
