TELLS OF BEGINNING OF GLORIA'S ROMANCE An intimate description of the Marquis Marquis de la Falaise, whose marriage to Gloria Swanson, the American motion motion picture actress, took place in Paris recently, has been given at the Paramount Long Island studio by Forrest Halsey, the playwright and Scenario writer, who spent six months'in Paris during the filming of "Madame Sans-Gene." Mr. Halsey is the only person in the United States who knows the Marquis intimately and what he has to say of him no doubt will be of interest to all motion picture devotees. "I introduced the Marquis de la Falaise to Miss Swanson," explained Mr. Halsey. "In that way perhaps I might be considered the father of the romance. They consider me so, as this morning I received a cablegram, signed by both of them, saying 'young children have done it.' Falaise first came into the unit to represent a number of young men of money who were ambitious to invest in motion motion pictures in France. They were anxious to learn American methods. The first thing he asked us to do In the unit was to cut off his title; his ihair on the set was marked, 'Mr. Falaise.* The blood of the Hennes seys which created business industry is strong in Falaise. "He worked with devotion and en- ihusiasm, being the first on the set and the last to leave. None of us -hought the enthusiasm would con- inue, but it did and seemed to rrow. Falaise does not resemble at ll^jthe traditlonaL_F-rench Marquis;he Marquis;he looks like an athletic young Irish American. He has never been to America, but .one of his great ambitions ambitions is to be taken for an Amer- can live-wire business man."
