Marsha Hunt, beautiful Sunday school teacher who denies she's a Blicker, Is credited by Hollywood with one of the smoothest movie crashing campaigns In years. Wholly without professional acting experience, Marsha drifted in from New York last summer, and broke Into pictures with a bang. "Quite Naturally."

She was encouraged to come to Hollywood by Robert Mack, photographer, who rightly thought her one of the loveliest things the round eye of his camera had ever Been. Mack Introduced her to Hubert Volght, one time herald for Greta Garbo, who knows by heart the newspaper axiom that no excuse for printing the picture of a pret ty woman is necessary. Fetching Photo.

Winner in Red Cross Essay Contest ir ' V w m Dionne Quintuplets Win Everyone But (Boy of 7 All the world loves a baby and when it comes to FIVE babies and sisters at that their devotion knows no bounds. The expected enthusiasm of the children at the appearanee of the Dionne quintuplets in their first dramatic film debut was entirely drowned by the chorus of oh's and ah's which came from the grown ups at the Des Moines theater where "The Country Doctor" is showing. Audience Captivated. T;i the reflected light of the silver screen, on which the Dionne sisters played In the utmost self composure, the faces of an enrap tured audience told of the appeal these babies have to young and old; man, woman and child. From the moment the babies first are shown,4 tiny bits of humanity all funny and red, to the final pictures as the five beautiful little human dolls they have be come, the audience Is completely ithcirs. "That's Yvonne." "No It Isn't, it's Cecilc." Whn Was Right ? And no ' one except nerhaps Mama Dionne herself could have north told you who was right. The only disparaging remark overheard came from a little fellow about seven who evidently had a younger sister at home, and who said, "Gee! Five of 'em to pull your hair. I'm glad they aren't ours." "Oh, kid, aren't tbey adorable? and "Couldn't you Just squeeze them to pieces?" Such was the comment from those girls who have only just recently grown too old to play with their dolls.

The five most widely known little girls in the world the ,, Dionne quintup lets although: they appear on the screen only! about 10 minutes, successfully steal the honors in the long - a w a i ted film, "The Country Doctor." The quint shots, in which they toddle or creep about the nursery at their Ca- jkan HKiiMioi.T. nadian home, and continue their play without notice of the cameraman except for an occasional stare, are the best filmed to date. Too, there apparently have been cut In a few earlier filmed shots so the transition from the birth of the quints to their 19-month age when the picture was made doesn't appear quite so abrupt. Most I'niisual. All in all, it's a picture that will please and certainly worth seeing, for It'll be the most unusual of the year. A smattering of applause followed each showing Thursday afternoon. Jean Hersholt Is convincing In the title role and is a fine counterpart of Dr. Daniel Dafoe, while John Qualen is excellent as the quints' father. Slim Summerville provides most or tne laughs as the constable whose heart is too big for the job. The birth scene, while taking place offstage, had Thursday's audiences In an uproar as Qualen and Summerville warmed blankets, bricks and finally coats for the babies.
