OTHMAN HOLLYWOOD, April 24 --(UP) -- A series of movie - star weddings, culminated Sunday by Tyrone Tyrone Power's, left Hollywood with a serious shortage of eligible bachelors today. Alas, the only marriageable bachelors in sight, with one exception, exception, were a few screen villians, a couple of middle-aged character actors, and one crooner. Taylor Exception The exception among the topflight topflight stars was Robert Taylor-and Taylor-and he's definitely out of the with his marriage to Barbara Stanwyck expected almost any day. This leaves better than a score of picture damozels in the lurch insofar as their chances of marrying- a leading man are concerned. Also left in the lurch--and what a sad plight was their's--were the picture company press agents who had to forego, for the first time since the days of Mack Sennett, Sennett, their beloved stories about studio romances. Power married Annabella-- Susanne Susanne Georgette Charpentier. The day before Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. became the husband of Mrs. Mary Lee Epling H a r t f o r Springs, W. Va. A few days previously Clark Gable had married Miss Carole Lombard--and that about cleared the deck. Nuptials Celebrated The Power-Annabella nuptials were celebrated in seven minutes flat, and with a minimum of Hollywood whoop-de-do, at the Bel-Air home of the bride. Superior Court Judge William J. Palmer read the vows and then joined few friends of the newlyweds in a glass of champagne and a corned-beef sandwich. Only witnesses in the flower- banked living room were Don Ameche, the best m a n ; Charles Boyer, matron of honor; her husband; Mrs. Patia Power, the groom's m o t h e r ; his Ann; F. D. Adams, his attorney; Tom Noonan, his studio standin; Bill Gallagher, his general handy man; and Fernande Chatain, Annabella's Annabella's secretary. The wedding was held at eleven a. m., while most of Hollywood still was abed, so that best man Ameche could get away to rehearse rehearse his radio program. The picture boys, who smashed a few flash bulbs on Annabella's carpets and climbed on her antique antique furniture, were stymied only when they demanded that Annabella Annabella kiss her husband for the benefit of her public. She said she wouldn't do it. Power squeezed her hand--and if you want to a picture of her kissing him, you will have to see a last year's movie, entitled "Suez," wherein the groom makes love to the bride for eight reels and Is broken- ! hearted in the ninth when a Sa- hara windstorm blows her out of his life.
