I would have referred to him as a step-son (her husband's son from a previous marriage) rather than a son-in-law.|
Peg Entwistle jumped from the Hollywoodland (as it was then) sign in 1932, at the age of 24.
In April 1927, Entwistle married fellow actor Robert Keith at the chapel of the New York City Clerk's office.
Keith was born Rolland Keith Richey in Fowler, Indiana, the son of Mary Della (née Schneider) and James Haughey Richey. His first wife was Laura Anne Corinne Jackson, the daughter of a prominent Cedar Rapids, Iowa family. His second wife was stage actress Helena Shipman, with whom he had a son, actor Brian Keith, in 1921.
On April 18, 1927 Keith married Peg Entwistle, the actress who jumped off of the H in the Hollywoodland sign in 1932.
