Hcd-ITcaded Girl from Arkansas Got Start Through Press Agent's Si mil; Now She's Successor to Clara Bow BV DAN THOMAS NKA Service Writer HOLLYWOOD, May 19.— Ixwly has ambiiions. No matter how young or how old or what lhe\ have accomplished, tlvrc still a something else to be done. About 10 years ago there was a little red-haired girl attending high srhool at Pine Bin IT, Avk., whoso big ambition "was to win her letter on (hn school basketball (earn. Today that same girl's principal ambition If. —but let her speak for herself. "T want to earn lot-s of money slie declares. "That's enomjli of an ambition for the present because In the picture business success naturally goes with the bit; salaries." Tills t-h-i Is Peg^v Shannon, for the last couple of years widely known on Broadway, and one of the newest recruits in the film colony. Although slie has been in Holl.i wood only a few weeks, she. already Iras been elevated to the exclusive star circle. In her initial picture. "The Secret Call." she is being costarred with RIclrard Arlen. Clara Bow originally was slated for the role. But a nervous breakdown which caused her physician . to order a six months complete rest prevented CJarn from playing the part, and Peggy was chosen. "I used to dream about beinp in the movies when I was a small girl." Peggy remarked. "But r never thought. I would be as I didn't think I would photograph well enoiiKh. Fortunately for me the (lav has passed when a sirl's photographic qualities were of the utmost importance." Peggy's start behind- the footlights came as the result of an tn- Kcnious i>ress agent's desire for a bit of publicity on the Kiegfeld FW- lies. Pegev v/as visitins; a girl friend in New York. The Rirl was soins to try out for the Follies and asked Pew if slip vv-ould like to RO with her. She did and there met the press agent who. after leanriuq Mie was from Pine Bluff, asked her if she would like to no on the staqe. Of course she wanted to. The press agent then asked her if she would like lo linvy her picture taken with Ziegfeld. Tills was done. A few days later the picture ap- penred.in New; York papers accom- Tegfy Shannon panied by a story to (lie elfect tin: an unknown Arkansas girl had been chosen by Ztegfcld in preference lo some of Manhattan's bjsi dancers for a place in his new show. A contract then was offered to Miss Shannon who demurred on the grounds that she couldn't dance. "We'll teach you to during- our six weeks of rehearsals," Zieefeld the start of a career replied. That was which during the last two years has taken Pe»gy into 15 "flop" shows on Broadway. "Aside from the fact thai 1 riidn't earn much money I was better o!f than if I had been in two or three big successes," Peggy remarks. "Evin the theatrical business eryoue sees a play during the first weeks of Us run. Consequently I was seen in 15 different roles by producers and as a result established myself pretty firmly , "Then cnme this break in pictures and—well, I don't know what to say about it, I'm just hopin» that',1 all." .
