HANDSOME ACTOR SUFFERER
FOR ART'S SAKE, HE SAYS
Fi&Icf. '
George Field is a dashing, debon
aire sort of a fellow who is perfectly
delighted when he can play a devil-may-care
part.
He is very often cast for a villain
and he thinks it quite splendid to be
able to transform his handsome face
into such a foreign look that people
take him for a genuine bad man. He
belongs to the American Film play
ers. "But what do you think?" says
Field. "Why mothers have actually
told their daughters not to become
acquainted with me, not to talk with
me, not to notice me. And these fond
mothers give as their reason that I
am the awful fellow who is the villain
in the 'movies.' They say: 'Surely a
man who, acts such desperado parts
must really have' some traits of a vil
lain.' Now -what do you think, of
that? Isn't that suffering for one's
art, what?"
In spite of the freezing weather in
New York or because.of it, hot birds
are plentiful on Broadway. Sparrows
and' pigeons are roosting on electric
signs to keep from freezine.
