Award Winning Film HOLLYWOOD GIRL: THE PEG ENTWISTLE STORY Now Available on Amazon Prime

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.

Hollywood legend paints Entwistle as the ghost who haunts the Hollywood sign, but Pomichter hopes the film will move audiences to remember Peg as much more.

"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." - James Pomichter

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).

Composer/music producer James Emley enriches the story with an emotional, original score and musical soundtrack (available on Itunes and Amazon).

Hollywood Girl: The Peg Entwistle story was awarded Best Dramatic Short Film at the Oscar qualifying Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival in Hollywood, CA. The film will also screen for audiences at the 20th Annual Melbourne Independent Filmmakers Festival in late October.

Hollywood Girl: The Peg Entwistle Story is produced by Arcane Pacific Entertainment (Veronica Barriga & James Pomichter) and executively produced by Laura Liguori.
