MONTANA STANDARD, BUTTE, SUNDAY MORNING, JUNE 5, 1932. FAVORITE HERE AGAIN INNER-VIEWS Great as an angel, at six in the ballet, Greta Nlssen was greater as a siren, at sixteen on the screen, A Norwegian by birth, the road to lame led from her home town of Oslo to Copenhagen, Vienna, Paris and London, and then to Broadway and Hollywood. But Greta still has that cute little Norway with her. She was educated in Copenhagen, Denmark, where besides reading and writing, they also taught her danc- Infj and music and dramatic art-. One of her teachers was IVirklne, the celebrated ballet master. When he went to the United States Greta, went on the stage, first in Copenhagen, and their in the other European, capitals. i Having heard much of New York, •* she finally decided to sec it. Greta greeted the Statue of Liberty with silent awe, A short, time later Broadway greeted Greta with loud acclaim when she appeared In "Beg- gnr on Horseback." Her stage success won her a screen contract and the starring role in the silent picture, "In the Name of Love." Then came "The Wanderer," "Love Thief" and the r\)x picture, "Pazil." When the screen began to talk Hollywood muffled Greta, The movie 'inike' didn't like her accent. She went back to the stage, to lose it, and did, but not her beauty or figure. On Jan. 15, 1931, she signed a licw Pox contract. And in her first talking picture, "Women of All Nations," she had to assume the vory accent she had spent months in J losing. v " In "Transatlantic" Greta was a vamp; in "Ambassador Bill" a temptress; in "Good Sport" a siren and in "The Silent Witness" a. lore- lei. In "The Silent Witness" Weldon IJeyburn was so Impressed with Greta's charm that he called in a minister. Weldon was welded and now Greta is a Hey'burn. Greta is five feet, four inches tall nnd weighs 12!? pounds. Has not . varied two pounds in weight in two years, Loves good food, will eat any- tiling that strikes her fancy and has never dieted. Is natural blonde, often called the screen's most beautiful and alluring. Has a satiny, ivory-like skin which lias never known any cosmetic other than pure cold cream. Her blond tresses have never felt the touch of i a hairdresser. 'I Insists she doesn't care for clothes, but those she wears she wears and how. Her favorite color is cardinal red. Speaks English, French, Danish and German, as -well as her native Norwegian, Is an accomplished musician. Studied the piano from early childhood. Also a sculptress of some ability. Reads everything and anything, worth while. Has no favorite author. Cannot recall any early ambition. Net even the stage. Just happened onto it—which was a great happening for Greta. And every day since Greta is becoming greater and greater. "While Paris Sleeps" has been booked for showing at the Fox American, it was announced yesterday by Manager Harry Stone. The picture, that shows the vivid life of a great city after the last sight-seers have gone home will be the American attraction Wednesday anri Thursday. Victor McLaglen, who appears as a French war hero, who escapes from a living hell ot life imprisonment, to save his daughter from tho streets of Paris, has the leading role, Helen Mack.

LILA LEE She will be at the R>x American today in "Radio Patrol" a romantic drama iriv which the former screen favorite is making a new bid for lame. It Is her first picture in some time and one of the best of her career, it is declared. HOLLYWOOD IN PERSON By SIOLLIK MERltiCK lBht, 1611. bj.the N. A. N. A.. Ino.) HOLLYWOOD, Cal., June 4.— 'People ate pretty..'much.the same the world over: th'cre is only one great difference—the true westerner, and by that I do not; mean the California westerner but rather the plainsman of our great Middle West, who will never starft at a movie staler stand still in his tracks to watch him or beg for on autograph. He has far too much native pride and dignity The greatest pride and dignity one encounters in the world." In a. day of shameless staring and stalking ol public personalities, this is a rare compliment which Gary Cooper pays the true American. It is an insight into the understanding which this •westerner has for his people and, coming as it does at the close of a year of travel by one who frankly admits he brought a very fresh eye to the picture of the world, a very significant observation of \fhat must always be the most valuable part of our American civilization. Gary Cooper has thoroughly enjoyed his African hunt, considers the Dark continent one of the most beautiful he has ever seen, has brought btick enough trophies to hang the walls of a, very spacious house in Beverly Hills. He has p!ayed a little in London, a little in New York and Newport, and was entertained during the season in Rome. The most fun he had In the British Isles was when attending the Grand National and the best fun in Rome was had while riding with the Italian cavalry—the finest body of horsemen in thft known world today —the most sensitive hands' and most exquisite body poise. Gary admits they taught him some valuable tricks, in addition to giving him the best times he had In cities. To Gary Cooper the very best times are to be had under n n'ide sky with a, far horizon. And when he finishes this .rear's work he will be off again This time to Indo-Chlna to penetrate dim teak forests and see the unbelievable beauty of oriental temples. But... .and here Is where the most interesting :>arodox in the Cooper personality comes in, he would like to have a little house on the French Riviera—Just n small place, to bo lazy In—anywhere along that sun- varmed curve that begins at Nice end ends tit Mcnton. The Hollywood hunter would come home to the Riviera after penetrating the jungles, he--,voulrj take in a bit of horse-racing in the country whare racing Is a form of madness, and would ride where riding is a delicate art. But in hfc estimate of people, he reveals his greatest admiration for those quiet, tall, lean men with dignity and pride—"too much dignity to stare at a movie star, and loo much pridn to halt and watch him step into h!s car." Which reveals Gary Cooper as quite a. personality, despite his quiet, telf-cffaclng way. Three years ago he slood unchallenged as Die great figure of masculine sex-appenl. Today two contenders for tiio iaurel.i arc ba'.lling fiercely to displace him. —Both of them have come to the tore during that year of- travel which too!: aary Cooper away from thcEcrctn. Clark Gable, whor.e scn- fational rise to the role of moTle hero Is almost as dramatic as that ol Rudolph V&lctiUno, and Johnny Wel«miillcr, whoso one picture, "Taraan of the Apef," has brought niore fan letters, fani'aro and fanal- Ktsm from i v.-rrrld of women limn anything rclear^d of laic yean. Johnny Wclsiinuiler, with a goou dent of voke Iralnlng and the came dramatic, talent he displayed in the almost silent role of Taraon, couk eoslly be Gary Cooper's greatcs rival. Clark aable, while impress ing a good many ns an exponent o the great outdoors, ie still the Idea gangster type, the racketeer, th caveman in full dress, rather thar the Cooper or Weissmullcr tj-pc. It is vital that Gary Cobper liav> good stories during the coming year He cannot resujne work nUer a long absence with the handicap of weal roles in weaker stories nnd with the added handicap of two slgniflcan rivals who, so far, have had vehicles Weally suited to their talents. It has been estimated by some o the shrewdest leaders of this Indus try that vehicles which take tin minds o" the public off the thing, that are harassing them at the pres cut time are most likely to succeed They count this largely as the rea son for the success of "Tarzan"—i silly sort of story wilh the nddei handicap of some Mayfalr dlalogu done by Ivor Novcllo. Clark Gabla has Invariably been given intelligent roles which he ha handled ably. Kc always owns hi lines No matter what the sltua lion, the author's dialogue neve seems alien to his mouth. Tills Is $ great yoint In convincing an audi once. Gary Cooper knows what lie want in the way of a role. He'd like to d a real western story Not a hors opera, as most pictures of this typ turn out to be, but a great tale o tlmple people. And he would be th ideal exponent of such a type. Svjcl n story, well done, would take ou minds off stock tickers and vanish Ing incomes If anything could; an ,ila Lee and Robert Armstrong Will Appear in 'Radio Patrol.' Another strong feature will greet Fox-American fans today in "Radio ?atrol," with Lila Lee and Robert Vrmstoxmg in the central voles ol a highly exciting romnntio drama. The picture marks the return to ho screen of Miss Lee, one of the favorites with Butte audiences a few (•ears ngo. "Radio Patrol" has received favorable comment from leading crit- os, thfe picture having just been rc- .eascd for showing to tlio public. It is loaded with dramatic sequences Uuit inove swiftly to tv powerful finale in which the stars give unusual performances. Besides "Radio Patrol," the new Fox-American program will have several short features including an uproarious. comedy special, The bill will be on for three days. 10 IIITFUS Announcement wns made 'ycslcr day about more outstanding picture: lor the Fox Rtnlto. "Symphony of Six Million," based upon n throbbing drama by Fannie Hurst will be presented Wednesday and Thursday at the Rlallo. Hicardo CorlcB nnd Irene Dunn are co-starred in the human story about people of great city. Cortes has the role of n Ghetto boy who becomes a famous surgeon. His romance with a beautiful teacher, played by Miss Dunne provides an engrossing theme in the picture. On Friday and Saturdny "Dancers in tho Dark" will be the chief nt- traction of ft new program. It Is a romantic drama in which Miriam Hopkins, Jack Oakle, William Collier jr., Eugene Palletto and others appear. Colorful scenes abound in "Dancers In the Dark," which carries a series of dramatic events that are topped by n smashing climax. HEDDA HOPPER IN KEATON FUN FILM Hedda Hopper and Henry Armetta will have parts in Buster Ken ton's new starring comedy, "Speak Easily." Miss Hopper has appearct recently in "The New Adventures o Get-Klch-quIck WalHngforct" and "The Common Lawy while Armctta has been seen In "Arsene Lupin' and '"Die Passionate Plumber.' Others who have leading roles h "Speak Easily" arc Jimmy Durante Ruth Selwyn and Thelma Todd. Edward Bedgwick Is directing the film a transcription to the screen of the novel by Clarence Budlneton Kelland. Jackie Cooper's most exclllng experience so far during his persona appearance tour wns an "elephant back" rldo at the St. Louis, Mo. KOO, "Gee, I wish I could have this elephant In my act," exclaimed the young star to zoo attendants. .such a story hasn't been well done for a long, long time. The screen's greatest exponent o masculine sex appeal has acquired a world of snvolr falre and a rlpencs of personality that only comes iron travel in many lands and cncounlcrs with many people. He can bring fa more to a story now than he cou!< before lie left Hollywood, practical!} hi:; only horizon outside of college days, prior to this Icnjr vncntloh But he must hi ing tham to n. worthy vehicle and iic must be given a fal break in the race for the pre-cml nent he-man of cinema. It's golni to be an Interesting thln^ to v/atcl ... .And I'm laying my bets on Gar. Cooper, providing he gets a few good btories and the sort of supporting cast without which the best o stories will go dov;n.

Except for many flutfy hangs over her forehead — Irene Bor- donl fashion — she comlis her 1ml straight back, with more hangs al the neck. Norma Shearer appeared on th same night (lit the "Grand Hotel' opening) wearing n. Garbo bob. O: at least that's what it looked like but, I suppose Miss Shearer wottk describe It otherwise— irerhnps the new Grecian effect would be a more accurate description. iUQMUN'J'S. The changed uttltiule of movie goers toward love-making in tlic movies was made apparent In a recent showing of "Ben Hur," revived with sound effects.
