This chapter describes the process of turning Dolores into a Hollywood star. Carewe arranged a screen test for her that was filmed just a day after she arrived in Los Angeles. It emphasized her exotic appearance—“exotic” being the quality he accentuated in selling her to filmmakers and to the public. Just a few days later, Carewe swept her into her first film, Joanna, which he himself was directing at First National. Carewe also engaged one of the best-known publicists in Hollywood, Harry D. Wilson, to promote his protégée.
