I have ever had. And I want to do everything in it for myself." She has a facial double, though, at her own studio—another brown-eyed blond who thinks she isn't a glamor girl, either. The two players resemble each other so closely that the still department department often -fonfuses their pictures. When Annabclla first arrived, everybody immediately immediately got the same idea—take her over to see Claire Trevor so she could meet her twin. .Actually, the French girl's smile is not so lazy, and her features are more cameo-like than the American's. Both actresses reserved comment, but arc friends off the lot and on. A NOTHER and better friend is Simone •**• Simon, although it was rumored months ago that she would be replaced by Annabella. Mile. Simon is returning to Paris without a contract contract renewal after some two years _of strenuous effort ori her studio's part to put across her pout. Annabella goes back home this summer to make one French film, then to Twentieth-Fox'* London studio or to Hollywood again. Her seven-year contract is good for three pictures a year at $ 100,000 each. The rising star stoutly defends the falling The new Annabella. ... No glamor girl, the young French star hopes to win American audiences in the tomboy roles which gained her stardom abroad. one. She thinks one of the few faults Americans Americans have is overrating foreign temperament, and says that Mile. Simon is "so nice, so different different from what they say, when you know her."
