Problem of finding names isn't so Garbo Is Right down on ' Margaret "I want to Stanislaw Wisecracking Hollywood commentators have for years been talking about the tootsie-wootsies tootsie-wootsies tootsie-wootsies of famed Margaret Louisa Gustafson (known to the screen as Greta Garbo). Said her feet were pretty big. "And why not?" says Harry Oster-meier, Oster-meier, Oster-meier, famed to the trade as a shoe stylist (of St. Louis, Mo.). Adds: "In-past "In-past "In-past ten years, women's feet have increased increased by a size to a size and a half."

Feet developed. Says Mr. Ostermeier: they're prettier feet, too. Average ten years ago was from size 5 to size 6. Now it is from size 6 to size 7',i. Reason critical males don't notice the difference: manufacturers have learned to fashion comfortable shoes so they look small and dainty, Just as win-som, win-som, win-som, in fact, as Sir John Suckling's darling, darling, of whom he wrote: "Her feet beneath beneath her petticoat, like little mice, stole in and out." Note: Fascismo cracked famed "I want to be alone Louisa Gustafson, on famed be alone" Leopold Antoni Bolesiawowciz Stokowski at their famed hiding place, villa at romantic Ravello, Baid legions of II Duce: It was undignified undignified to pay so much attention to cinema recluses.

Driven beyond endurance by marble-hearted marble-hearted marble-hearted Fascismo's ukase against publicity, publicity, famed recluse with big mop of blond bobbed hair at last gave interview interview to foreign press. Said she: she wasn't married, wasn't going to be married, married, had only half a dozen friends in Hollywood, in Sweden; was Just good friend of recluse Stokowski. "I never had any impulse to go to the altar," she said in throaty voice. Added she: "I want to be alooooone." Hollywood Skulduggery No sooner had Louise Hovick (once glamorous strip-tease strip-tease strip-tease artiste Gypsy Rose Lee) fa' down and go boom, bruised her left leg trying to be an acrobat in new movie (trick fall and somersault caused black and blue mark on elegantly shapely shapely nether limb of famed Lady Godiva) than she limped right Into more trouble. Crush of autograph hunters was too much. In the confusion, she discovered she had signed subscription blanks for magazines she didn't want. (Some movie actors have even, in rush of circumstances, circumstances, signed blank checks, but they fool hunters there because they always use a different signature for the bank.) So that movie pretties need not have to curl up beside the fire with a magazine they don't want and read stories they don't like, publicity agents have been warned by studios to think up new precautions. I Murray Kormaa Louise Hovick Won't subscribe easy, either. Ma and Pa have had to choose some rare ones, like Aleathea, Dolores, Virgil.

Stewart, her husband) just where and when she was born. (Impresario Goldwyn had hired a tutor to teach her English!) Reluctant mysterious beauty from abroad admitted that she had never seen the Midnight Sun; had seen, instead, the street lamps shining through windows of her natal flat in Flatbush and not too far from Coney I.sland, at that. Closest (she ever got to the stage before adventure adventure in Hollywood was third row, orchestra, orchestra, with husband before they pfffft.
