Olive and George O'Brien's Romance

Olive and George O'Brien became one of Hollywood's favorite couples onscreen and off. They met when they worked together in the 1926 western 3 Bad Men. That same year Olive and George costarred in the hit comedy Fig Leaves. Their real life romance lasted for four years and there were rumors that the couple was engaged. Olive once told a reporter they were "looking for a house suitable for two". Sadly George decided he did not want to marry Olive and he broke up with her in 1930. Apparently his conservative family did not approve of Olive's drinking and lavish spending. George was the great love of Olive's life and she was heartbroken when the relationship ended. He married actress Marguerite Churchill in 1933 but the couple divorced. George O'Brien passed away in 1985 at the age of eighty-six.
