Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Peggy Hopkins Joyce
    LATE_ADULTHOOD
  • 1957
    Age 63
    Peggy Hopkins Joyce died in New York City in 1957 of throat cancer, aged 64.
    More Details Hide Details Her name was frequently incorporated into song lyrics of the 1920s and 1930s to invoke images of excess and naughtiness. For example: Arthur Train had her make an appearance in his 1930 Wall Street novel Paper Profits. Under the name of "Miss Boyce", she gives vapid sex lectures on the topic of "Why You *Should* Marry", and wiggles her torso a lot. This is one of several vignettes meant to show the wild side of life in the 1920s before the great Stock Market Crash of 1929.
  • THIRTIES
  • 1933
    Age 39
    In 1933, she played herself in the ramshackle film, International House, which contained some good-natured joshing about Joyce's love life.
    More Details Hide Details A W.C. Fields punchline about Joyce sitting on her pussy (revealed to be an actual cat) upset the Hays Office, which began censoring films the following year in response to such material.
  • 1930
    Age 36
    In 1930, Joyce released a ghostwritten tell-all book reputedly taken from her steamy diary entries. "Men, Marriage and Me" advised, "True love was a heavy diamond bracelet, preferably one that arrived with its price tag intact."
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1924
    Age 30
    She made her film debut in 1924's "The Skyrocket," which provoked the Wisconsin state legislature into introducing a bill that would allow for the censorship of all movies entering the state; in any event, the film was a box office failure.

  • TWENTIES
  • 1923
    Age 29
    Joyce caused a sensation in the 1923 installment of the annual Earl Carroll's Vanities.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1922
    Age 28
    Her life had its tragedies. Guillermo Errázuriz, brother of the equally scandalous Blanca Errázuriz, killed himself in Paris in 1922, despondent over her.
    More Details Hide Details She owned the Portuguese Diamond, one of the most expensive in the world, that she sold to Harry Winston and which is now on display at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. Recounting a meeting with Joyce that occurred in the late 1920s, Harpo Marx reported that she was illiterate. Nonetheless, she was credited with a column for several years in the early 1930s to the spicy New York publication Varieties (not to be confused with the show business trade publication Variety). The column gave racy news about high jinks and goings-on in both New York and London.
    By 1922, Joyce's romantic escapades had made her one of the most written-about women in the American press.
    More Details Hide Details She would grant any interview, sometimes receiving reporters in her bedroom while wearing a sheer negligee. Cole Porter and Irving Berlin both used her name in their lyrics, The New Yorker ran cartoons mentioning her, and Will Rogers could get a laugh by invoking her reputation.
  • 1920
    Age 26
    In the spring of 1920, the newly-married Mrs. Joyce drew attention for a $1 million shopping spree over the course of a week's time.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1917
    Age 23
    She debuted on the Broadway stage in 1917 in the Ziegfeld Follies, following this up with an appearance in the Shuberts' "A Sleepless Night."
    More Details Hide Details Lee Shubert became her lover for a time, a roster which included Irving Thalberg, Walter Chrysler and Charlie Chaplin, who based part of his film A Woman of Paris on stories Joyce told him about her previous marriage. Sweden's future King Gustav VI was also rumored to be among her lovers.
