45 Star Plays New Scene By VIVIAN BROWN AP Newifoaluroi Silent screen star Unlrlco J«.v Gilbert plnycil to a packed House nguln recenlly, Slic wns telling a Connecticut women's club how It wns "In (lie eohlen afie of Hollywood." Bui. Hie scene wns -different from Ilio silent film dnyg when the beautiful femme fafnlo wife of screen idol, John Gilbert, was pursued nn the .screen by male admirers', and at (lie end of her Inlk her audience, Hie Wdlon Womeii's Club, gave her their first standing ovalion. Now more Ihan 70 years old- she will admit only to "I WBS born in (h e 1800s"--Mrs. Gilbert is slill a beautiful woman. At Ihc woman's club lier gray hair was piled high, intertwined with shocking pink ribbon, and she resembled a glamorous movie star in every inch of her five-fool-six frame. After a nine-year absence, she had just returned'from a visit to Hollywood, which, she said, has lost Hie lustre that made it known in her day as "the city of fabulous- nonsense a place (hat could materialize one's dreams even before one could dream them. ..." The trip brought back memories of her love scenes with male idols of the day--Richard Dix, Conrad Nagel and "oP Gilbert" as she referred to the silent screen actor who was to become her husband. She confessed she liked the love scenes so much that she "made boo- bnos nn purpose." Horn in New Orleans of a well-to-do family, the news paper account of Mrs. Gilbert':, iiiring hy a newly formed local acting company fell like a bombshell in the household. She had gotten the acting bug when she was in a school play and had applied for an ingenue role in answer to an ad. She succeeded in persuading the family to let her continue. .Fans do not expect Mrs. Gilbert to look so young slill. In Hollywood she sought out a I bench' dedicated to her with a plaque. She sat on it and overbearing two women discussing what had happened to her, she revealed her identity. But one said, "if you are Leatrice Joy, I am Grela Garbo." · After a brief period in talking pictures, the actress retired to take care of her only daughter, who now lives in Greenwich, Conn., with her five children. "After one trip abroad, my small daughter didn't recognize me, and 1 was frightened. So I gave up everything else to play the more important role of molher. ..." Guide to Books THE TERMINAL MAN. By Michael Crichton. Knopf. Remember that very popular, tense thriller, "The Andromeda Strain?" Crichton has come up with another one (hat is just as much of a nail-biter and goosc- pimpler. On nn entirely different subject, of course. Crichlon's specialty is the suspense story grounded in actual biological or medical science. The plot outline ROCS like this: A crew of brain surgeons at a research hospital, having experimenled nn monkeys, wants to try on a human patient their theory for curing something known technically as! psychomotor epilepsy. The patient lias mental blackouts, during which he becomes murderously violent, but when hcj comes out of the seizure he re-! members nothing. Their'procedure is to embed a. tiny computer-like device in the patient's neck, which monitors his brain waves; when nn attack is building up, the device gives him a mild electric shock thai staves off Ihc attack. Bui the device h;is to IK: monilored by Ihe hospital's big computer so it will not stiinu- !a!e him Inn much.
