Actress Bebe Daniels on the witness stand during a trial for 36-year-old war veteran Albert F. Holland. Holland's sanity was questioned after he wrote more than 150 love letters to Daniels and claimed to have married her in Mexico. During the case, Holland ran most of his own defense, including a lengthy cross-examination of Daniel’s husband, actor Ben Lyon. The jury ultimately found Holland to be insane and committed him to the state hospital.
