Twenty-one years in pictures is the record .of. Frank Coglan, Jr., who portrays the role of Billy Batson in Republic's new serial, "Adventures of Captain Marvel", which will show every Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Rex Theatre. But in spite of his venerable screen record, Coghlan is still a memberj of the Hollywood younger set, since he began his screen career at the age of three, and for years was one of the top juvenile stars, being billed as "Junior Coghlan". He was born in New Haven, Conn., but was 'brought to Hollywood at an early age when Gogh- land, Sr., a chiropractor, set up his practice in the film colony. Young Frank claims the distinction of having been the only boy ever signed up by De Mille. In his first picture — a Clara Kimble Young production—he decided he very definitely didn't like the flickers, andi was carried out of the scene crying at the top of his lungs! Although he thus spoiled the '"take", he at least got himself noticed, and he has been active on the screen ever since. In the interim h e took time off to attend U.C.L.A. and still retains his post as honorary manager of the U.C.L.A. football team. He has been active on the ether wages, appearing on the Lux program as well as with Rudy Vallee, Bing Crosby, Oakie's College, the Aldrich Family and the Dr. Christian series. He is interested in writing as an avocation, and spends much of his spare time at his typewriter developing his literary talent to a point where he will feel sufficiently professional to su'bmit his work to magazines.
