Despite the excitement of a new love affair and the professional heights he achieved, Mencken remained depressed over the loss of his mother and was unable to work. To revive his optimism, Mencken headed off on a trip south, and ended up in Hollywood where he was reunited with actress Aileen Pringle. His subsequent disenchantment with the movie industry and the suicide of his friend, poet George Sterling, pushed him back home to Baltimore.
