From the website babydoe.org:
Silver Dollar was given its world premiere in the Denver Theater on Glenarm Street, on December 1, 1932. Though the names were changed, the story is clearly that of Horace, Augusta and Baby Doe Tabor. Indeed, the producers approached the real Baby Doe, living in Leadville at the time, about attending the premiere. She did not. Friends advised her, instead, to sue those responsible for the movie. Though she apparently never saw Silver Dollar, it is reported that she sent some Matchless Mine ore to Denver to be displayed at the premiere.
