Chicago Day Book - Jan 6, 1916, p 15 - Stenography did not appeal to me. I did not...
Stenography did not appeal to me. I did not have time to prepare myself to be a school teacher, and my family steadfastly refused to have me go on the stage. My friends insisted I was what is known as "good looking" looking" and urged me to go m-.o the movies. I tried it. I thank them for their advice. Starting with Frank Baum's Wizard Wizard of Oz studio, I played successiv-ly successiv-ly in better roles with Bosworth Inc., Famous Players, Griffith, with Kolb & Dill in their new comedy, "Glory," and am now playing "leads" opposite Ford Sterling at the Keystone. To my mind here are ten commandments commandments every girl should follow if she expects to make good in the movies: Shun joy rides and late parties, for a bleary eye will spoil your "close-up" "close-up" effects the next morning. Guard your health carefully, as your complexion depends upon your general health. Your complexion is one of your greatest assets. Spend all you can possibly afford on your clothes. A pretty dress may often help you get a better part. Be natural above all thing don't try to act "stagey." Cultivate self-confidence and banish banish the word "fear" from your dictionary. dictionary. Be ready at all times to give absolute absolute obedience to your director. Do not make a god of your palate, for it will tell on your waist line. The average director for leading roles insists insists upon slimness. Do not expect to play "leads" unless unless you are fairly good looking; if you are not, try for character and second woman parts. Don't be afraid of hard work you will be well paid for it later. Above all, don't get inflated with your own importance. A. girl who has begun to make good and who assumes assumes a haughty air is one of the most despised objects' around any studio. 1 (To Be Ccmtimfed.)
