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 four years and the press often reported that were engaged. Olive once told a reporter that 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 he did not approve of Olive's drinking and lavish spending. George O'Brien was the great love of Olive's life and she was heartbroken when the relationship ended.
