'DECEMBER 11," 1932. PART m.l KAREN MORLEY'S HONESTY ' MAKES HER "BLACK SHEEP" Program' Today to Open Season for Dancers9 League PHI UP K.

Thia column's Christina has been brightened, M hundreds of thousands of othen will b, by Walt Disney. Specifically, by Walt Disney's newest Silly Symphony, "Santa's Workshop." I got them to run it off for me ever at the Technicolor lab. I had heard about it, and eouldn't wait; I'm still Just a boy at heart. It was grand Big Santa, all the little Santas, Dunder und Blitzen, the human dolls, tha animal dolls, . the mechanical toys, the letter- to Santa all of It. Color, rhythm, humor, symphony . . . tht cinema, I aaid to myself, fulfilled. DIGNIFIED, WHITE-HAIRED Dr. Kalmus (his name, I always think, should have been Litmus) la the head of Technicolor. He escorted me to the projection" room, and prepared to leave. (Dr. Kalmus is a very busy man.) "Santa's Workshop" flashed, on the screen. Dr. Klm-us, who must have seen it dozens of times before, sighed and sat down. "Stay and se a little ef It," he murmured, half-apnl-ogeticallv. He was still there when It said, "The end." T AT THE EASTMAN LABORA-tory fl shall always look bark em last week, a bit wistfully, as "Lab.

Two hundred entrants submitted reels and reels of 16 mm. and 9.5 mm. film, from which four were finally chosen aa the beat. (I should hate to have had ta art through the 19fl others.) One was a "three-mr melodrama, The Black Door," made by the Greenbrier Amateur Movie Club -of White Sulphur Springs, W. Va. It wa terrible. But funny. It combined all the worst features f Hollywood's professional movie clubs' in one fen swoop an m-Ijrecedented feat. Another told ita story with hands and feet and Inanimate objects. Btin another.

Wherein, then, do we fall short? T DISCOUNTING THE "MAED-chen" cast's prime advantage the fact that they are all total strangers to us, and hence aeem more to be "living" their parts than acting them there are two general but vital points to be made m their favor, in our disfavor: - Germany's acton are taught to subordinate themselves to roles and theme. Hollywood players have drilled Into them a "go-getter" philosophy: This is-the take I Go to It. boys! Give 'em all you've got!" etc. And every man-Jack of them goes to it and give "am an he's got, and how. "Maedchen" Is subtle, mental, tntroverslve. The Hollywood product is; made by extroverts for extroverts. Prosecution rests. WHILE PRODUCERS HAVE been hammering away at a succession of one-locale talkies (most of them, thanks to their own arbitrary limitation, essentially; rioncinematic) a writer named James Hilton has been preparing a crackerjack tip for them tn the form of a novel called HI Wind."

Briefly, it relates how the death of an English planter on the Malaysian Island of Cuava affected the murder of a soviet deputy in distant Geneva. Link by link a drama which leaps -across a half-dozen countries, and In-, volves a British agent, an English spinster, her lover, a Rumanian lnvemor, a Hollywood star, a Russian refugee, etc., etc., is forged until the story is complete. Says Time, in Its review of the book: "Without ever obtruding himself or appearing to state a esse, he (Author Hilton) makes it Vwilliantly clear how far a single action can fling its consequences." T OUR SECOND AND HAP-pily, last tip comes from Mr. W. " 'The Gal from the Galapagos.' " he explodes. "There's a title, lad, that any studio could be proud of. It goes to the highest bidder among all those that have lost-island pictures for simultaneous release. "Courtesy to agents, as the real estate gentry say." What, no takers? FILM FOUND BY DRAMA SEARCHERS Agentt, Seeking Good Play Abroad, End Up by Buying "Maedchen in Uniform" When some of the New York the atrical producers went on their annual pilgrimage to Europe last summer In search of dramatic material they were no doubt convinced that somewhere on tha continent there was being acted a little gem of a play, something that might prove itself a Broadway hit. Many producers, managers and play scouts visited Paris. Imagine the experience of these gentlemen, asking, "What has Pagnol done? Whwe is Savoir? Who is Achard?" to be met with the inevitable reply, But have you seen 'Maedchen in Uniform'?" If anyone dropped in on London last summer he would be met with the information that there were some good plays on the boards, but he would be quickly told about "Maedchen in Uniform" and how the Prince of Wales had even taken to writing glowing letters about it. And wherever the producer might" travel in search of a play, to Stockholm, Budapest, Riga, Seville, or even Cairo, he would be faced with the success of a film. "Maedchen in Uniform;" twenty-eight weeks in Berlin, sixteen weeks in London, eighteen weeks in Paris, twelve weeks in Stockholm and so forth. Last summer John Krimsky, whose duty it is to provide several thousand subscribers of the New York Play-of-the-Month Club, Play-choiee. with theatrical fare, was traveling in Europe in search of plays for his organization. He had had no better success than any of the other searchers, when one night he chanced into the Marlgny Theater in Paris with Gifford Cochran, a wealthy young American who was studying art abroad, and they saw "Maedchen in Uniform" for the first time. And instead of a play, they decided to bring this unusual motion picture to America. The film is now being shown twice dally at the Belasco. Final Tryouts to Be Staged Tryouts forlthe free scholarship offered by the Edith Jane School of Dancing to a boy or girl without previous dance training, will close on the 17th inst., according to announcement. Many children have already availed themselves of this opportunity. Appointments may be made with the school secretary for tryouts during the coming week. Five of the best will be chosen to perform at the Christmas party, to be held at the studio during the holidays, and the final award will be announced at that time. Final selection will be made by the public and a selecting committee. Rhythm, natural poise, creatlve-ness ability to take instruction and personality will be among the leading qualifications for selection. Final rehearsals are now under way at the studio for the children's ballet which Miss Jane will produce during the holiday season." GIN GO Ballroom Dancing Adult classes: Man..

Fl. 4127 I . r 1 .i Vm vv ULTRA-FEMININE ART PUTS "STRONGER SEX" TO SHAME BY ARTHl'B MILUER Mere man may cherish his de lusion that only the "stronger" sex can create real art, but how will he get around the fact that the art exhibition of the moment in Los Angeles is the work of two "weak" women, and young ones at that? For Phyllis Shields and Elizabeth Baskerville Norton, whose water colors at the Dalzell Hatfield Galleries are drawing "ahs" and "ohs" from visitors, are not only members of the "weaker" sex, but produce art which is extra-feminine in charac ter. Miss Shields is one of our most imaginative artists; Mrs. Nor ton, one of our most sensitive color -ists. Both artists are members of old Los Angeles families, Mrs. Norton being the daughter of Harry H. Baskerville, president of the Board of Education. Miss Shlelds's grand father, a physician and surgeon, came to Los Angeles forty years afro. Grandfather, who for twenty-one of her 24 years was Phyllis's closest companion, advised the imaginative girl to be true to her own thoughts no matter how curious they might seem to other folks, and so he had a share in developing one of America's most original artists. r IMAGINATION ENCOURAGED As a child she had no inclination to draw or paint, but when she was 16 Phyllis Shields suddenly began to see life in pictorial terms. Now your realistic painter needs stern discipline, but your sensitive, "dif- flprent." imaginative one needs, above everything, encouragement. Miss Shields got it from her first teacher, Vernon Hunter, who was then at the Otis Art Institute. Having eVta Wished her right to paint her most personal visions, she then sought knowledge and discipline, and here 8. Macdonald-Wright has proved a valuable teacher and critic What are her pictures like? She saw three fishermen leaving a mountain lake, their flshpoles pointed heavenward over their shoulders and she wanted to call them back because she was afraid those Ion? poles would pierce the sky! Oh. I know what your gray-faced psychiatrist would say he can explain all that. Perhaps he can, but can he pamt the exquisite picture that resulted from that imaginative experience? No, and furthermore, he can't even have an imaginative experience! Because the sky in that picture U beautiful as only one could see it who feared it mieht be pierced. And the lake! Its fish are not Just fish they are poems swimming beneath tender pink lotus blossoms! Yes, there are still "more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in our philosophy.'' One night Phyllis's friend the poetess dreamed that the two of them went from California to Spain on ladders! That became a picture, too, one of the finest. Then in "Noa-Noa." Gauguin wrote of "golden sails" on the South Seas. That touched Miss Shields white sails on a blue ocean get tiresome. So she painted 'Tahiti," a beautiful picture of island fishermen and their boata In each picture one comes on some Jewel-like nub of design. In this picture it is the fish lying. in the bottom of the boat; in a picture which contrasts a Negress and a slender white woman it is the embroidered colls r on the former. An imaginative vision can give a truer "feel" of a place than your realist can. Miss Shields often watched the Sisters come from their convent to walk on Santa Monica's Palisades as the sun sank. She painted the scene, and here is an interesting thing: she had been impressed by the contrast of Mack nun's habits, orange sun and brown mountains, but the painting chose another color scheme entirely. Yet it is absolutely convincing aa to time, place and people. NOT GUSHTIY INSfNCERK There are many "gushy" female artist who affect "childlike vision" althout sincerity. Miss Shields is not one. She is, in fact, unusually shy. Quiet and retiring. You may find her modestly painted in back view wearing a green dress and blue hair ribbon in one of the paintings. " " Phyllis Shields will some day be nationally known. Here is your opportunity to see her work before that Inevitable time. Elizabeth Baskerville Norton, now trie wife ef an army ariaror stationed tn Baa-ail, is different per son and type of artist. She is concerned with a quite regular view of the visible world, but she sees it with such sensitive perception of form and color that she opens our eyes to its more subtle charms. She paints women, children and flowers and the two former have, for her, flower-like dfclicacy and color. She is quite the best, though not the most popular, flower painter Los Angeles has produced. Most of the currently shown water colors were painted in Honolulu, and the islands' rare flowers predominate. Of Interest to everyone, for its association, is a night-blooming cereus flowering on a cask us planted by Robert Louis Stevenson. But this picture is slso a fine example of her color, its cream and green suffused with gold. Whether painting people or flowers Mrs. Norton has a strange faculty for suffusing one color with another. It is not a technical trick, but a beautiful way of seeing life. Both these young artist have received prizes and honors for their works. Mrs. Norton is now kept busv as a portrait painter In Honolulu. But each of them offers something beyond the pedestrian run of earth-bound realistic painting they Invite us to realms ethereal through their visions. And they certainly make mere man draw back a bit from his complacently assumed position of superiority. PHOTOGRAPHERS SNAP THEM ALL (Continued from Fifteenth Page) and negatives the next. Not long ago he took his small sons to lunch at the Hollywood Brown Derby. A news service man wanted to take their picture, but he declined. The photographer followed him when he went to his car and. over Charlie's protests, snapped a fine picture of the two boys. A week later, Charlie met the offending cameraman. The latter was prepared to be "socked." but Charlie, all smiles, complimented him on the picture, said it was one of the best he had seen. A news service man photographed Lupe Velei and Jackie Fields (the boxer.) at a ntRht club one night. Just last Saturday he photographed Lupe and Johnny Welssmuller at the same spot. Lupe had "plenty" to say to him first, but she let her picture be taken. A BROKEN THREAT Edwin Carewe, the director, threatened to break a camera over the photographer's head when he was snapped coming out of court one day. The cameraman dared him to go ahead. There were no broken cameras. Photographers have always lived up to the creed: "Get your man or woman!" When Ina Claire was getting her divorce from John Gilbert, she made her entrance to the Judge's chambers by a secret passage. The cameramen weren't supposed to know she was coming. As she stepped Into the room, confident she had eluded them, there was a roar and blinding flashes. About ten cameras went off together, and to make sure they were getting the picture most of the men had set off two flashes. You can't faze a hardy news photographer. Motion-picture atars are nothing in their lives except camera subjects their editors want. Current Films A BELASCO "Maedchen m Uniform." a German film.

These two dancers will share honors with Raoul Pause, of the San Francisco bay district, who Is coming south'for the program with two members of his company, Alice Bridges and Harry Hamilton. New Numbers to Be Offered This A iternoon Raoul Pause, guest artist on the program which the Dancers' Protective Lpague Is presenting this afternoon at the Ambassador Theater, Is a personality well known to concertgoers, but new to local audiences. For years he was solo dancer with both the Chicago and Manhattan Opera companies and premier danseur of the Cincinnati Opera, later being co-starred with Willet Allen In the Pavley-Oukraln-sky ballet. Coming from Oakland with Pause to share honors on this program are Alice Bridges, known in the concert field in the Bay cities, and Harry Hamilton, late of the Chicago Civic Opera, Wsldeen Palkenstein and Charles Teske. both of whom have a wide following of admirers in the dance circles of Southern California, are the leagiie's soloists for the occasion, and both will be seen in entirely new numbers. Miss Falken-steln's new group, "Early American Scenes." is a pictorial group based on music or poetry of early days in our country, while Teske affords a virile modern phase of the interpretative dance. Both Miss Falkensteln and Teske were members of Mtchlo Ito's oriental concert troupe, dancing numbers of their creation throughout the company's travels. Immediately following the concert, which is the first that the league has offered this season, there wtl be a reception for out-of-town guests and audience at the league headquarters. CHILDREN APPEAR IN HOLIDAY OFFERINGS 3 . Betty Ruth Gordon Entering into the holiday festivities, the Meglin Kiddies appeared recently on a number of Christmas programs. Among .these was the revue staged, at Robinsons, where the children, together with Santa Claus, provided a gay assortment of entertainment. Newsreels of the children were taken and will be shown at downtown theaters during the week. One ff the principle performers wis letty Ruth Gordon, who will appear in additional Meglia Christmas entertainments. 1 WALDEEN FALKENSTEIN (Continued from Fifteenth Pace) restaurant the otner day. Now what? That From It: Sol Wurtzel, Fox exec, swears you can always tell a real actress by what she does after a scene is completed. If she's still in character, she's a true artist. If she begins clowning as soon as the camera stops, no hope! On the set the other day. Sol happened across Sally Ellers in a very, very weepy scene. The camera stopped, and Sally continued to let it rain, let it pour. "There, now." declaimed Mr. Wurtzel triumphantly, "there's an actress!" As a matter of incidental interest. Sally had a cold and .was weeping when the came to work that morning. Siren Call of the Cartas They're still taking their siestas 'mong the sagebrush.

They Played Him False The sequel to last week's false teeth fiasco is that the owner dropped them again on the way home from Caliente, on the floor of the car, where they were promptly stepped on.

Which is perhaps why people were rushing up to greet her, with "Oh, Miss Moran!" "How are you, Miss Moran?" "When did you get back. Miss Moran?" Her ladyship was later caught scanning pictures of Low annrais- lngly. Shed thought at first the greeters meant Polly. Students Sign New Contracts Students of the Bud Murray School for Stage and Screen have been engaged for many productions during the holiday season. Phylls Soule, a Murray protege, was recently signed as Billy Dooley's partner and is now rehearsing at the studio. Duke and Dickie, creators of ,the Bud Murrsy Hollywood Stomp, have signed for an unlimited engagement at the Club Airport Gardens, beginning Thursday. ; In addition. Murray supplied Hal Roach studios with four ballroom dance teams during the past week. These included Mary Frances Taylor, ballet directress of the school, and her partner. Jack Murray: Scrivner and Lovell. Duke and Dickie and Miral and Duval. HOLIDAY PARTIES PLANNED Each year as tha Christinas holidays approach the activities at the Ernest E. Ryan School of Dancing take on a festive air. Ryan is planning several Christmas parties and a New Year's Eve celebration for the students of the various classes and their friends, timi" kiimmiiimiii!ii"iiiiiiimni BY PHILIP K. SCHEUER "Alrriost astonishingly honest maybe a result of her Iowa background. Has keen sense of humor. Pretends not to take herself or her work seriously. But really does." I doubt it- despite the authoritative tout of this studio biography oi Karen Morley I also question that "almost honest." I question the "almost." Miss Morley trapped last week as she poLsed herself for a two months vaca- unoi ry tion with her husband, Charles Vi-dor, wouldn't commit herself about having a husband. She said she liked to "pretend to have secrets." This one regarding her secret marriagewas the only "secret" she was reticent about I'll say that for her. "I'm sort of a black sheep on this lot ( Metro-Gold wyn -Mayer,)" she continued, "because I can't take pictures too seriously. On account they don't mean that much to me." Miss Morley sat there with a half-smile on her fare. She appeared astonishingly ia good word, when used in any connection with her) unlike an actress. Almost plain. I have no recollection of what she wore, no more than I ever have about friends, relatives and casual acquaintances. It was this ability to slip into her favorite role that of the ordinary, or common-garden variety, of young woman which probably made it possible for Mildred Linton to procure a marriage license in the little town of Santa Ana without causing the least flurry. That's her real name. Miss Morley was born in Ot-tumwa, Iowa a factual occurrence which, she complained, is thrown up to her on an average of four times a day by Californiana who are. themselves, ex-Kansans and Nebraskans. Her objection to the films is. principally, that so many of the lines she has to speak are stupid. If she finds herself unable to believe in what she is saying, she overemphasizes her speech on the side of ludlcrousness; then she usually gets it changed. On more than one occasion, she observed, she has rewritten It l.erself. For "Flesh." with Wallace Beery, one of the two locally current pictures graced by the Morley presence, she was required to portray what seemed to her an impossible "tough," articulating out of the corner of her mouth. The other picture is "The Mask of Fu Manchu," in which, she said, she suffers and suffers and suffers. "As a white woman?" I asked. "Very white," Miss Morley italicized. "Ghastly pale." So she awaits the day when she will have a part whose spoken lines are less consciously humorous, somewhere above the "gag" level. It is for this intelligence, or at least an inclination to be civilized, that she respects the stage. BECAUSE OF HER NOSE "I have an idea why they give me all these strange roles," she said suddenly. "It is because I have a big nose." This, on tha face of it. was fairly absurd.
