Capra ... met Helen Howell, and they married on November 25, 1923. Although he continued to
bounce between jobs, he became steadily involved with various Langdon productions,
and eventually worked his way up to director. He splashed onto the movie scene with his
successful directorial debut, The Strong Man, in 1926. At this time Capra’s professional
career began to rise, but his personal life took a nosedive. In 1926 doctors discovered his
wife’s pregnancy was a life-threatening, ectopic pregnancy. The subsequent ending of the
pregnancy tore their marriage apart because
Capra turned to his work to cope, while
Helen turned to alcohol. They split in April of 1927
