Neilan and Mayer worked often together at this time, but after Mayer became head of MGM in 1924, the two had a falling out which revealed each man disliking the other fiercely. Neilan was vocal about his dislike of Mayer, which damaged his Hollywood career. Later, not finding work at the major studios, Neilan ended his career directing B movies.
