HOLLYWOOD'- The highest-salaried group of chorus girls who ever hoofed in Hollywood are kicking up their glamor-gams these days in a new version of the old hit play, "Broadway." Collectively, these supercuties also happen to be the worst dancers seen in Los Angeles County since the 'Junior .League Follies of 1929. It isn't that'they're clumsy -or inept, or that they're going in for corny comedy. In fact, movie audiences won't even be aware of the undeveloped state of their dancing talent because their work as a chorus will be shown only in brief scenes scattered through the picture for atmosphere. Also Self-Defenders You see, these chorus gals are really actresses.' They "were chosen for their ability to speak and reveal snappy lines, and for beauty of face, and for aptitude in putting up a good fight when pawed by leering • gangsters. The wages of these fancy dishes start at ?350 a week for the least prominent one, and from there shoot up sharply to an unstated top for the leading lady, Janet Blair. Being actresses, they don't mind being ribbed as poor chorus girls. Miss Blair once studied ballet dancing, but not this type. Marie Wilson appeared in "The Great Ziegfeld" early in her career, but she was a showgirl who just posed and walked around. Iris Adrian once had a role as a member of a honky-tonk chorus but that didn't offer much in the way of dancing training. Others of the six babes in "Broad way" are Anne Gwynne, Elaine Morey and Dorothy Moore, none of whom could do a time-step or shake a se- First Aid for Potluck Dinner A Stormy Night Con Moke Forty All the Merrier By MRS.

George Raft dances again in this picture, and he still can pick 'em up and lay 'em down. As the story now is bein filmed, it's definitely biographical in places, beginning and j ending in the present. At the start, lor instance, Raft is shown as a Hollywood star arrivin in New York, and one of his friends asks the truculent actor whether he's taking a vacation or another studio suspension. "What's 1 the difference?" retorts Raft. Another word about Miss Wilson: Tho last time I saw her she was abouC to start work at Metro in "I Married an Angel."
