Plot Summary: A former actor, Taylor became a director at Paramount, helming Mary Pickford in Johanna Enlists and the teenage beauty Mary Miles Minter in "Jenny Be Good." In 1917 he became president of the Motion Picture Directors Association; by 1922 Paramount had made him head of his own production unit. On the night of Feb. 2, 1922, Taylor was found dead in his mansion. Rumors flew about the killer's identity and motive -- most of the rumors centered on Taylor's lovers, including Minter and Mabel Normand. Neither were formal suspects but both allegedly saw Taylor shortly before his death.

Scarlett went on shooting 'The Perfect Score', 'Lost in Translation' and 'Girl with a Pearl Earring'. The film was made after all, but with different cast. Rebecca Crane was then played by Kelli Carner and main character Justin Cobb by Lou Taylor Pucci (instead of Elijah Wood). Other original cast members (who are in the final version) are Keanu Reeves and Tilda Swinton.
Auditioned for 'The Parent Trap' (1998).
