I own two of Edna Murphy`s diary`s. One of them is from 1927 and the other is from 1933. I can not believe that Mervyn could have treated her so badly, and I am shocked that Warner Brother`s aided in having her Blacklisted in Hollywood.

Mervyn`s first wife Edna Murphy, helped to make him a success. When he was starting to become popular, HE DUMPED HER !!! What a CRUEL PERSON he must have been !!!

I read that Mervyn was very cruel to his first wife Edna Murphy.

Mervyn LeRoy did not even mention being married to actress Edna Murphy in his 1974 auto-biography, even though they were married for almost 6 years.
