Ex-Stage Star, Leatrice Joy, Cultivates Outer and Inner Life By ROBERT PETERSON Something happen s to many theatrical stars as fame and youth fade. Self-centered and emotionally insecure, they tend to live in the past, and it is not uncommon to read that they have lost their health, money, and will to live. It's good to report that Leatrice Joy does not follow this unhappy tradition. The young set i may never have heard of her, but to those of us approaching • the golden horizons she was once j a joy indeed. I This belle of New Orleans ! caught the eye of movie maker j Cecil B. DeMille, and between i 1920 and 1925 was the Doris Day j of silent pictures — pretty, pert, ; and pure — with a touch of the tomboy. Thanks to promptings of a wise mother who hovered I close during her film years she ! thriftily banked a good bit of her ! earnings and will never have to j fret over her ineligibility for social security. In 1930 she married actor John Gilbert, who passed on in 1937. Subsequently, she lived for years on an exotic houseboat adjoining the yacht club at Balboa, Calif. Unlike many prominent widows and exstars, she never retired to her memories. She reared her daughter, who ultimately married and moved to Connectiiut, and packed her days with social activities, civic work, and religion. Six years ago she couldn't resist pla'ying grandmother. So she moved East to a storybook cottage a mile from her daughter's ! family, and today, in her 60's, is savoring what she terms the most satisfying years in her life. "I live in two worlds — my outer and inner lives," said Mrs. Gilbert when we fell into conversation recently. She's slim and vivacious, with silvery hair piled high and eyes that dance with vitality. "My outer life has me adoring my five grand children, attending meetings of local clubs, and getting dressed up now and then for luncheos and dinner parties. "But these pleasures wouldn't be half so satisfying if they were not supported by my religious beliefs. I discovered Christian Science when I was about 40 and began devoting two or three hours a day to its study- It has shown me the meaning of life and the path we should follow both in aebknowledging our Creator and in finding contentment. "Mind over matter may seem simply an expression, but I've found it has limitless powers. Take health, Many people think it's just a matter of diet and exercise, forgetting that right thinking plays an enormous role in physical well-being. "My convictions are a rudder and stabilizer. They help me put Pages 12 & 13 Garden City Telegram Saturday, October 27, 1962 earthly crises into proper perspective, and if I have any message for my contemporaries it is to urge them to cultivate not only their external world, bul their spiritual resources as well."
