Makes me think of the old pre-code film "Dinner At Eight" where John Barrymore commits suicide in his hotel room because he is an over-the-hill aged actor with a drinking problem. He "takes the gaspipe"

I was just thinking of that great movie. But in Dinner at Eight, he sets up the lamp to light his face in the chair. It’s very dignified.

I can sort of understand the motivation of Barrymore's character in Dinner at Eight, especially if one becomes too addicted to the attention and adoration aspects of celebrity. Jane Russell, thanks to her exceedingly nice figure, was a white-hot Hollywood starlet for a few moments, and then settled into a long, yet fulfilling obscurity as wife and mother. Obviously, Ms. Russell did not get too addicted to all the excessive attention and adoration as her friend Marilyn did. Poor Marilyn: However, she at least had the sense of dignity to not end up being another Hollywood-hotel-death cliché. The Moral is: Everyone needs a home (and not merely a house), with all the annoyances and obligations that go with it; otherwise, one is just practicing to be a ghost.
