' Feir people in the audience of thr Fo.x-Hackensack theater realize what t-; being done in other parts of the hous in order that the picture on the scresi' may appear to fullest advantage. Y'et the action "behind the scenes" appeals to the imagination of the spectator. A representative of this newspaper hps gone "behind the scenes" and int--newed that seldom known man, tiie projectionist. ; In the Fox theater. Hackensack, feur projectionists maintain constant yi:ll. ' They are Fred Lamartin, Alan Lidcii 11, ! Alfred Dugan and Andrew Snyder. ' In ' charge of all lighting effects and o'thcr! electrical features is the master eleciri-' cmn, Harry Knight. j These five men are responsible for the , proper presentation of the pictures and , lighting effects in the theater, wit tout , their co-ordination and ingenuity many scenes would suffer. ; Lamartin has had twelves years, ex-; penence in the field. Among the iSiea- i ters that he has served are: the Old! Lyric. Hackensack, Queen Anne, Bot ota; ; Grant Lee, Palisades; Rex, East Iiuth-: trford; Plaza, Englewood. ; Liddell has served in the Queen finne, Bergen, Plaza and the Grant Lee. Dugan has served in the Plaza, 'imeen Anne and the Park Lane while Snyder has served the Pascack, Playhouw and Opera House, Ridgewood, as well .s the Garden theater in Paterson. Knight, was electrician for George , i White's "Scandals," Ziegfield "Fhllies." j "Passing Show" and "A Nicjht in , Spain." The series of rooms where these men work contain everything that is re- quired for the proper presentation of j their features. High up in tns tnea-ter is the projecton "room," a suite of the best ventilated and well-kepb rooms. The fan room holds the giant fan that acts as an exhaust for all tlj.e gases and fumes generated by the piujection machines. The next room to gj eet the eve of the visitor is the battery room contain batteries for the amplifiers.! synchronizing room is where musical ! presentations are handled independent- j ly of the pictures. I The fourth room in this ser s is the i film room, here all splicing, ljpwinding J and inspection work is done; without ' interfering with the main projection work. The projection apparatus Is-, of the most modern. A Brenograph . has been installed and is the only oiie of Its kind in Bergen county. This; machine allows any kind of lighting ; effect to be thrown upon the stage or any part Tel.

Hollywood Sights and Sounds By ROBBIN COONS Hollywood Another of those girls who had to leave the movies to gain movie recognition has returned in the blond person oi Virginia Bruce, who failed to make good on a Paramount contract a year or so ago and joined Ziegfeld's show In New York. Miss Bruce fared indifferently in her first movie experience, the highlight in her career being a bit, scarcely a role, as one of several ladies-in-wait-uig in 'The Love Parade " I VIHG.NI BRUCE shorUy shp released and went to thp stage. Now j she returns with a contract for better I things in pictures. i It is one of Hollywood's peculiar op- Ural failings that personalities at its doorstep are overlooked while those a continent's width away loom Invitingly bright and fair. r There's a little matter of experience, too. not to be gMnsaid. "ONE-MAX BAND." i News that Charles "Buddy" Rogers is going into radio and stage work as an orchestra leader and singer holds a threat of keen competition for Ruddy Vallee and other reigning crooners of the air.

A young actress who likes the informality of Hollywood still is considering moving from her present apartment. Her friends, who have discovered that her French windows are easily unlocked, persist in "dropping in" at all hours- sometimes even for early breakfasts. The boss wanted to change Anita Touisp's name whpn he signed her on 'contract, but Anita, the "not-quite-15 ! lnoHinfr lariv heoupft tn keen ihe one j she had established as a child actress.
