She continued to get supporting parts in films like Paid and Party Girl. Unfortunately by 1934 she was bankrupt and unable to find work. She started starving herself and her health quickly deteriorated. Her last role was playing a waitress in the 1936 comedy Ten Laps To Go. She moved into a tiny low rent apartment in Los Angeles. On January 21, 1937 Marie Prevost died from acute alcoholism and malnutrition. She was only thirty-eight years old. Sadly her body was not discovered for two days. Rumors started to spread that her hungry Dachshund Marxie had eaten her body. The truth is that the dog tried to wake Marie by gently biting her then spent days barking until she was found. Her close friend Joan Crawford paid for her private funeral. She was cremated and her ashes were given to her sister.
That sounds like the censored version though to be honest.
