Paul Lukas is one foreign actor who M not shunted Into obscurity by the advent of the talking picture. And this In spite of the fact that three years ago he could speak only one word of English—and that word was •steak." Indeed, talking pictures have brought him the greatest success in his career, and have been the means of elevating him to the status of an Independent star. The handicap of language was not sufficient to do more than effect a temporary halt in a swift upward rise which began in the era of silent pictures. No role that Lukas has ever had, lowever, has done so much for him as the role of Count Ous in "Strictly Dishonorable." It is by general consent the prize role of the year. The Paramount Company tried to buy "Strictly Dishonorable" for Paul Lukas' use, and when Universal wouldn't give it up, a compromise was effected whereby Universal borrowed Lukas to play the role in its production of "Strictly Dishonorable" In association with Sidney Fox as the Southern girl and Lewis Stone as the ludge. Every one is satisfied that the role of Count Qus couldn't be In better hands. Immediately after the assignment of the role, Paramount an- lounccd Paul Lukas as an independent star, instead of a feature player. "When the entire motion picture industry fell headlong into the production of talking pictures," said Luaks recently, "I realize at once that only heroic measures could prevent the immediate ending of my American screen career". Many European players, their contracts cancelled, were already making preparations to return to their native lands. Under the conditions. I could expect nothing that I must go with them. "I had but recently come from Hungary, and my command of English was almost a minus guantity. In fact, when I crossed the Atlantic on my 4 way to America and Hollywood, I had beefsteak for every meal, because that was the only nglish word that I could say. "And so, I disappeared. For seven months I kept away from the studios and all this time I was diligently at work mastering the English language. Realizing that merely taking a dajly" esson would be too slow a process, I engaged a young college graduate who accompanied me everywhere I went. Since we were together all day, and he spoke nothing but En- , it «raA not long before was able to catty on a simple- oon< tlon In English. "At the end of seven months I went back to the studio—an English speaking actor. To be sure, I spoke with a slight accent, and will probably do* sb to the end of my days, but that has not proved a very serious handicap. Possibly it has been a help, though I am not sure of that. At least 1 escaped oblivion." For many years a stage actor in Budapest, capital of Hungary, Lukas later appeared on the statge in Vienna and Berlin, and in the later city made his screen debut as Samson in the UFA production, "Samson and Delilah." Eventually he was brought to America under contract, and achieved instant success in silent pictures—but the talkies brought him to the height of his career, Lukas' last appearance before stardom claims him is in a featured role of "Strictly Dishonorable." Universal's sophisticated comedy which starts Sunday at the Saenger. ' Just One Mishap After Another for This Girl MEMPHIS.—yP)—Apparently recovering from a spinal injury received In an automobile accident several months ago, Miss Jean Johnson, 21, of Fort Smith, Ark., was in a serious condition again Wednesday as a result of a second accident.
