BOYER-2 - Charles Boyer, French Actor Minus a Sense of...
Charles Boyer, French Actor Minus a Sense of Humor By JIMMIE FIDLER HOLLYWOOD, Nov. 7—Idle chatter: chatter: Greta Garbo frets some because because she walks slightly pigeon- oed. Richard Arlen has a take- apart complex; until electric clocks, his household could never be sure of correct time. Nutshell description description of See-moan See-moan: Ga- minx. Wally Beery reminds of a mil in a china shop. If Mae West's tiome should burn, she would save "irst a miniature, her only likeness of her' mother. In need of good Jictures to bolster faded prestige: Catharine Hepburn and Al Jolson. 3eirs otf Thomas W. Dickson ("Birth of a Nation" author) have coljected $1,200,000 royalties and are still collecting. Marion Davies is a fool for wide belts. No eyes more changed by cam- :ras than Elissa Landi's; intriguing- y sophisticated on-screen, they are childishly innocent off. Now that R.udy Vallee has smacked over another another drunk, mayba he will want to play Jimmy Cagney roles. Studio Studio sign: \VILD WALL; means the wall is quickly removable, and not secured to the rest of the set. Jeanette Jeanette MacDonald is a telephonatic; 30 to 90-minute chats by wire are common in her life. Edna Mae Oliver's drinking water is shipped to her (five gallons weekly) from an Arkansas spring. Peas from the same pod: Fredric March and Donald Donald Woods. Dick Powell tells this amusing anecdote on himself: On his last visit to his home state (Arkansas) he was motoring through the countryside, countryside, wearing spats. His car ran out of gas and lie persuaded'a negro boy in a dilapidated wagon to drive him to the nearest filling station, On the return trip, the colored boy asked Powell where ho had come from. "Hollywood," Dick answered. The darky grinned broadly. "At's jes what I tola the gas station man," he exclaimed, "the minute I seed dem shoes and uppers you is wearin'!" If Charles Boyer has a sense of humor, he has managed to keep it concealed, and here is evidence for my statement: A director tells me that while he was filming a picture on desert location, Boyer abruptly refused to work because "the wind had blown sand into his hair and he had no way to get it out." The director stored his tongue in check and suggested that Charlie could claim the sand was dandruff. "Dandruff?" bridled Boyer. "You say dandruff? I wash my hair. I have no-dandruff!" Charles Boyer just luw to take liiimclf seriously, sitys director. more than any other movie prodigy, including Shirley Temple. It seems incredible that JacUie, now beyond voting age, has never seen "The Kid." His explanation is that he was 4 years old when it was made. He has since been offered offered opportunities to see it, but has always refused. I agree with his sentiments. I saw tho picture myself myself only a few weeks ago, a box office sensation in its day, the technique technique is now so antiquated that the picture appears ludicrous. Better
