Ince From page 1 Catalina was the eventual destina- tion of the yacht on this particular voyage. But Ince's connections with the Island are clear. In fact, his film Civilization, considered by many to be his crowning achievement, was partially filmed on the Island, most notably with the inclusion in of a smoldering Avalon following the devastating 1915 fire. Onboard" the :Oneida, the stage for Ince's death was set and the ac- Guided Day Trip Sunday, September 18, 2011 loin Naturalists from the Conservancy and the National Park Service for a fantastic adventure on Santa Barbara Island.

The Oneida had sailed from San Pedro to San Diego and it was there that Ince joined the party, having arrived by train earlier in the day. It is said that at some point during the evening, Ince was taken ashore with a "stomach ail- ment". From this point on, the tale diverges from a simple gastrointestinal problem to a tab- loid murder. One way or the other, by most accounts, Ince was dead within-24 hours. The Hollywood press immedi- ately seized on (or perhaps creat- ed) a story of Ince's death by pistol at the hands Of an enraged Hearst, who---it was reported--lusted af- ter Marion Davies. "Movie Producer Shot on Hearst Yacht," screamed the Los Angeles Times. The wild media speculation es- sentially morphed into a number of different stories: that Hearst found Ince and Davies in a compromis- ing position in the ship's galley and pulled out his gun and started shooting; that Hearst found Chap- lin and Davies in an uncompromis- ing position, pulled out his pistol and accidentally shot through the bulkhead hiring an innocent lnce in an adjoining cabin; or that Ince, hearing the shots in the first sce- nario, came to the rescue of Chap- lin, only to be shot himself. While the simple death-by-gas- trointestinal ailment would seem to be the most plausible (Ince did suffer from ulcers and there was no doubt a great deal of alcohol Jim Watson Columnist are some curious tidbits of infor- mation that would seem to bolster the conspiracy theory accounts. The first account was purport- edly from Chaplin's see- retary, Toraichi Kono, who helped Ince off the yacht. Kono claimed" that the stricken man was decidedly afflicted with a gunshot wound to the abdomen. Then there were the various differing accounts from many of the celeb- rities themselves on the yacht that night, including Chaplin and Davies, who claimed that they visited a decidedly living Ince two weeks after the alleged incident and that Ince was never actually on board the yacht in the first place. (I'11 bet Kono got a pink slip after that). Additionally, no formal inquest or autopsy was ever performed (the body was cremated within 24 hours) and the district attorney in charge of the case never inter'- viewed any of the people on the yacht. Added to that Hearst--who had the financial means to cover up any transgression on the plan- et-silently paid up the mortgage on Ince's Hollywood townhouse some time later. "All you have to do to make Hearst turn white as a ghost," said famed movie producer D.W. Griffith later, "is to mention Ince's name. "There's plenty wrong there," said Griffith. "But Hearst is too big." Got a weird story about Catalina?
