It did not come as a surprise, then, when a scene turned up in the script of the adventure story in which the actress, who portrays the beautiful young heroine, had to be! in s blanket, photographed in bed. It was in "Two Girls and a Sailor" that the petite blonde screen favorite was first seen in pajamas. This was the film which, almost overnight, skyrocketed her to fame. In It she wore special-tailored pajamas, created for her by Irene. There was nothing especially glamorous about them, however. "They were quite plain," she recalls, "to match the character I played. Gloria De Haven had the feminine, whistle-provoking pajamas in that one."

"It was getting so," says June, "that I was afraid people would think I couldn't act unless I was in pajamas." Then came along "The Three Musketeers," with its nightgown, to save the day. What kind of night attire does June Allyson wear in private life? "Why, pajamas, of course," she says. June Allyson as Constance and Gene Kelly as the dashing D'Artagnan share the starring honors in the Technicolor film. "The Three Musketeers," now at the Paramount Thea- film, ter. in her distinctive Betty Grable fashion, Betty Grable is seen as "Bonny Kane," the beautiful burlesque soubrettc, whose devotion to a lovable but undependable comic with talents far outstripping his sobriety, is the theme of the story. Jn singing, dancing and acting, Betty Is said to be at her best in this role, with her "What Did I Do?" number credited with being the most outstanding movie routine of her outstanding career. While Dan Dailey has plenty of opportunity to use his nimble feet in this film, his role of "Skid" provides a dramatic field day for the actor who won an Academy Award nomination before he soared to stardom as the screen's new dancing sensation. Grable and Dailey are supported by an outstanding cast which Includes Jack Oakie in the jaunty role of "Bozo," the burlesque comedian; June Havoc, who plays the role of Betty's chorus friend: Richard Arlen a s the wealthy rancher wno almost marries Betty after her divorce from Dan; and Jimmy Gleason, as the sympathetic stage manager.

Aiding and abetting Beau's plot is the suave Senator Faulkner, valuable because of his influence In the State Senate. This is the situation when Gary Con-way returns home from the war to start a cattle spread with his kid brother, secretly working for Beau, is killed in a bank hold-up. Gary joins the Rangers and. comes into immediate conflict with Bsau. The two are opponents in romance, too. vieing for the affections of a beautiful reporter who covers the Rangers' activities for several papers. Although engaged to Beau, she concentrates on Gary once she discovers the undercover enterprises of her uncle, the Senator, and Beau. After a bitter and tense struggle, the Rangers finally outwit and outfight the renegades, .thus preserving unity and freedom in Texas. William Elliott plays the down to earth Conway with nice restraint and Adrian Booth does admirably as the reporter, her first role in a de luxe film.

"King of the Gamblers," now »t the Capitol Theater, Is quite a girl. While still in her early teens she played her first leading romantic role. Now, still under 20, she is a full fledged college student as well as a Republic Pictures star. At the University of Southern California. Janet is majoring In journalism. She became interested In the subject through her contact with the studio's publicity department and, realizing: the inter-related Importance of news reporting and publicity to an actress .she decided It would be the most practical course to study. Janet has no idea of using her journalism background save as an avocation--and to help her to be a reporter's idea of a perfect actress. Smart girl! In order to manage all her activities, Janet has had to put herself on a strict schedule. She confines her dates to week ends only so that she can be in bed nightly by 9:30. While working in a picture, she has no dates at all. Then she devotes one hour following: dinner to her school work, one hour to her script and so to bed. She arises early every morning so as to get in a walk before spending another hour with her books. She always manages to get in at least an hour of tennis or badminton every day and takes a weekly singing and dancing lesson. To maintain such a strict schedule requires grit, especially In one so young, but Janet has plenty of determination and will not veer from her course. She inherits her energy and determination from her mother who was a well-known opera singer in Czarist Russia. Due to her mother, too, Janet was able lo sing in four languages by the time she was seven. Less than five years later she sang In public for the first time and put her numbers over with all the aplomb of a diva. After a series of such eon- certs. Janet was brought to Hollywood to study and gain theatrical experience In Little Theatre productions. Offers for screen role* were soon showered upon her, only to be with drawn when her reel age was made known. Eventually she won a Republic contract In spite of her age and performed so well that she was given her first leading role before she had celebrated her fifteenth birthday.' From that time on, Janet appeared in more Important role* and today Republic Is proudly making elaborate plans for her future. Janet Is a sure bet for top notch stardom. She has everything needed to build a sensational career upon--beauty, brains, acting ability, personally and a lovely singing voice. She Is a girl to" watch In the future!
