From: Gary Carey, Doug & Mary: A Biography of Douglas Fairbanks & Mary Pickford [alternative spelling: Doug and Mary: A Biography of Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford], E.P. Dutton: New York (1977), page 103:
Mary [Pickford] and Doug [Fairbanks] did not attend Olive's [Olive Thomas] funeral at St. Thomas's Cathedral in New York. Their absence was not a sign of disrespect or indifference--they stayed away out of common sense. Even without them, the funeral was nearly turned into a three-ring circus by the fans who came to gawk and grasp at the celebrated mourners.
