BROOKLYN DAILY iTA'GLE, NEW YORK, TUESDAY, JULY 19, 1932 'The Chameleon' Opens at the Masque TheaterRadio News Reverting to Type' Reverting to Type By RIAN JAMES TODAY'S GI'EST COLUMNIST IS JACK OSTERMAN I'M TELLING YOU, RIAN Well, It certainly was a kick when you asked us to write a column for you while you went away to Hollywood to forget hat-check girls, crooners and all the various other characters you wrote about last year. But even out on the Coast you will probably find that love is still a racket. In these days of depression it's a pleasure to read of something going up, and that is why we were' " glad to hear you decided to go up'thusly: THOUGHTS WHILE VIOLET K. COOPER to the Coast. Understand you closed your sea son by breaking your hand boxing with your trainer, who visits you daily. We have the inside dope on that gag, Rian. Your trainer is a spy for those guys that publish your books. Even a publisher gets tired, and you were writing them every twenty minutes, so they decided to put a stop 10 u. sorry we oian i make y'our preview party at your penthouse, but we forgot that we had a previous engagement with a cub reporter to go to the fights. The kid's name was Winchell. He had ringside ducats and he asked us to go as official answerer. The Idea was that when anybody said to Walter "Glad you're back: you're looking fine'' we were commissioned to answer "He's glad to be back and feels swell." You see, Winchell really came back from Hollywood in the best of health, double-crossing- a lot of his friends. Mark Hellinger was in the party too, Rian, so you can see how us columnists hang together. Cry from the mob: "They all should!") Being a guest columnist is a novelty for us, and we really don't know how to make our debut. Having played every theater in Brooklyn, this is the first time we can feel safe in buying The Eagle, knowing we will receive a good notice from ourself. We were thinking of writing a column for you something on the Oh! Oh! Mclntyre style, STROLLING . . . Bert Wheeler al ways looks so sad. . .Manny's steaks on Forsyth Street. . .the appreciative audience at the Bushwick. . .Sulka ties don't hold their shapes... what's happened to Dooley and Sales?. . .the grill at the Orpheum when the late Percy Williams owned it. . .Bernarr Macfadden resembles "The Music Master"... the Century Roof now replaced by an apt. skyscraper. That, Rian, was one idea we had, because we knew Mr. Mclntyre when we were a kid and lived at the same hotel on 72d St., but we gave up the thought and figured we would steal Hellinger's idea and write: For want of better names, we'll call them Mary and Joe. Mary was an ambitious show girl and Joe was a hard-working ticket speculator. They were madly in love that's Broadway, Roscoe and everything went smoothly until the opening night of the new revue Mary was in. Joe had been married before to a girl treasurer who double-crossed him by giving choice seats to McBride while Joe was working for Tyson. There was a daughter whom Joe had not seen for fourteen years. Mary was much younger than Joe, but then, Roscoe, who isn't? Then came the big party in honor of Mary's triumph. Wine was flowing and a good time was being had by all. It was the first time doe had ever seen Mary in an evening gown; little did he surmise what was In store for him. While An important member of the repertory company playing al th f lierkthire Plarhoute, Stork- bridge. Mam. dancing he noticed a mole on Mary's left shoulder, about a half mile up from where their engage ment ring rested. Joe turned white, took Mary to a secluded corner, asked several questions, left the party, and has never been seen since. No one at the party ever knew that Joe had been dancing with his own daughter. Episodes, Roscoe, that's Broadway. Not wanting to infringe on our pal, Mark, we next thought that we would do a Sidney Skolsky tin type for you, and, even if he complained, knowing his size, we knew we could lick him. For our subject we figured on delving into the private life of the doorman at Billy LcHiff's Tavern, but after getting Today's Radio Programs 860K. WABC 349M, i 4 00 P.M.

Ed Su1' -in came to our weary mind next ad we dashed oil a few lines in his vein, thus: MEN AND MAIDS OP MANHATTAN:... Sally O'Neil was dancing last night at the Pierrette with Peter Arno, while Harry Pierrette) Rosenthal played tunes for Marjorie LeVoe at the Pierrette... Louis Shurr walked into the Pierrette with a party of eight... the Pierrette had a great gathering, with the volcanic Lupe Velez doing a Mexican dance under a table at the Pierrette. . .last night we were at the Pierrette, a place in the Hotel Pierre. We decided that maybe a trip on Louis Sobol's Merry Go Round might make a swell column, so we started: HOLD TIGHT EVERYBODY! HERE WE GO! Leo Michel and Vickl Cummlngs have been seen nightly at Reuben's... what wealthy estate has guards around it now?. . .The moon is coming over the Empire State Bldg... the breadline on the Bowery... Snapshots, the1 al-BUM of MAD-HAT-ON ! Summing the entire thing up, Rian, we came to the conclusion that to be a hit we would have to swipe a bit of Winchell. You'll notice we held off as. long as we could. So we dashed off a few lines in Sir Walter's style:... The Chase and Sanborn coffee and the Maxwell House doughnuts have phifft! ...the third floor of the Waldorf Astoria expects a blessed event... a tenant. . .what Hollywood couple will have it Reno-vated? What Hollywood couple hasn't? Next year's Ziegfekl finale will middle-aisle it... it's a new boy over at the Lawes (Sing Sing) Prison.. for ten years. . .although it will be denied, Jack Pearl paid all the checks at Moore's yesterday... it's been denied. After striving on our typewriter to try to write with a different angle, imagine our surprise, Rian when a copy of Variety dropped off our desk, reminding us that we are a columnist in our own write, with our own title, "I'm Telling You." How silly of us to try to imitate these other writing guys when we can take a couple of gags out of our own Variety space and send them to" you. That's Broadway, Roscoe, but who doesn't? Here, then, goes Osterman in person : Prosperity may be just around the corner, but right now the world looks like a round house. . .the modern theatrical mother now tells her daughter to go to school and learn her N. B. O's. . .Fatty Arbuckle has recovered from Hays Fever would you call it Washington, De ceit?... and don t you think people would have a better time in this world if it weren't for people?..., ARE YOU READING?

There was Tom Curtin, author of those New York police thrillers you hear each Tuesday night at 10 o'clock over WEAF, Interviewing Capt. Michael I. Silverstein of the Mount Vernon police force. It was Captain Silverstein who captured five of the six bandit-killers in the celebrated trolley car pay roll robbery a few years ago. The telephone rang. Captain Silverstein picked up the receiver and spoke for a few minutes. Upon hanging up he turned to Curtin. "You know," he said, "that was the sixth man! And where do you think he is? He's on a boat bound for Australia to the South Seas!" "That'll make a great finish, Cap-- tain," exclaimed Curtin, who was readying the script for the air to night. 'Yes, I suppose it will. You're welcome to that Incident," Silverstein replied, "but I've got to radio the Australian police that we don't want our man, because all the witnesses are.dead and we can't convict him." Curtin will incorporate this detail in "The Double Murder on the Owl." Tomorrow's guest columnist be Grace Hayes. Add to the Long Island roster on the Radio: ' Ole Olsen and Chic Johnson.

The Theaters By GEORGE HANSOV, 'The Chameleon' at the Maque Theater Is a Colorless Comedy on the Changeability of the Movie Star Temperament The doors of the Masque Theater opened last evening to let in "Tha Chameleon," a Hungarian Importation. They might just as well have remained closed until some amusing or w;orthy native product had been polished up In some country theater for the Broadway market in the Fall. Perhaps the critics and an opening-night public went out of curiosity to see a real live chameleon on the stage. Something of the sort was promised in an advance press notice. All they saw was a pretty creature representing a moving picture star, whose changeability consisted in little more than various changes of apparel, in pastel shades, from after noon frocks to pyjamas. Wanda Alba comes to the private sanatorium of a famous surgeon to visit her aunt, who for apparently no reason at all has had an operation. The Interne and the nurse are all flustered over the visit of the screen idol. She sets her beret, however, for the great surgeon him self, annoyed at his imperviousness to her charms. Unwilling to be put out of the place when the visitors' hour ends, she puts on nurse's garb and finally becomes a patient herself. Wanda tricks the interne into allowing her to stay and persuades the surgeon into removing her appendix. His chagrin at being inveigled Into cutting out a perfectly healthy appendix changes into admiration, first, for Wanda's beauti ful appendix and . then for the Tb.

They're Typical, hut Not Types Hollywood -Tell nig on By ROBERT GRANDON Lounging in my library the other evening, a statistical friend ... let him be nameless, for statistics are odious . . . glanced through my proofs of recent releases and pointed an alert eye on the one dealing with typical Hollywood extras. "Bet you two bits you can't tell me who the typical players, are among the stars," he challenged me. "I'd give $2 to know," I retorted. "Fair enough," he returned, They're Fredric March and Lilyan Tashman. And here's the proof . . . " whereupon he started to elucidate. Forty-eight typical players were chosen and their characteristics averaged. . . . For the men, the sum and substance showed an individual 164 1 4 pounds in weight; 5 feet 11 inches tall; with blue eyes and brown hair. March weighs 165; stands 1 inch under 6 feet, and has brown eyes and hair. Among the women, the average totaled at 115'4 pounds; 5 feet 44 inches in height; with blond hair DINE and STANCE ARROWHEAD INN nine Dd Dane on the Terrace. Dinner S2.50.

Both have homes outside Hollywood, which is another average trait. March, In fact, so dislikes th-5 confusion and bustle of the place that he has located at Laguna Park, 43 miles away. . . . When engaged in a picture, he makes the drive daily. . . . Lilyan has her home at Mnlibu Beach- and spends all of her spare time there. Both started on the stage. . . . March came to the studios from the spoken drama . . . and Lilyan found her start in musical comedy as a great many of the average players have. . . . Both are happily married and have no children, which is another characteristic. . . . Flor ence Eldridge and Edmund Lows are the respective spouses. - Finally, both have played a rangel of parts from heavies to leads, and, acquitted themselves with honors. After which information, my statistical friend boned me for the $3 and kept it too, the hound . . . But I got even with him ... I gave him a $2 bill and hope it brings him bad luck.
