REAL BETTY BOOP Original Max Fleisner Cartoon Girl Appears In Person At Colonial Theater in '45 Min utes From Broadway' Betty Boop the original Max Fleisner catroon girl now appearing with "15 Minutes Of Broadway" is a very charming and small being only four feet ten Inches in height and weighing only 96 pounds and her figure Is almost the same as that of Betty Boop's on the screen. In Betty's act she takes you to Hollywood and shows you how cartoon's are made and sings on the side of the stage showing you how her voice is synchronized on the screen. She sings and dances for you and her act is enjoyed 'by both young and old. Little Ann Little, Betty's real name, has worked for Max Fleisner and the Paramount studio for several years and actually talks off the screen and onto the stage for you. Betty eyes and eye lashes are exactly like Betty's on the screen as you will notice Betty has six large eye lashes at top just like the Betty Boop on the screen and it takes Betty two hours to make up as she makes herself to look like the Betty. The reason Little Ann Little is called the original Betty Boop is because she is the little girl who won the case from Felen Kane for Max Fleisner and the Paramount studio. You must see Betty and see how she looks and acts off the screen. Coming at the Colonial for two days only, Thursday and Friday/April 23-24. .1 MISS HELEN TABOR Correspondent Princeton, W. Va., R. 1.
