HOW LONG SHOULD A KISS BE? MOVIE QUEENS
GIVE THEIR OPINIONS

Miss Mary Alden.
Los Angeles, Cal., March 6. How
many feet on a movie film should be
allotted to a kiss?
That is, what is the proper length
for a kiss between the heroine and
her devoted lover in REEL life?
According fo a Chicago board of
censors, three feet is the limit of os
culatory propriety, filmwise. But
members of the Los Angeles board
are on record with an opinion that
even this is too much, and Mrs. Mar
tha Nichols, recently appointed to
the board, says two feet are -plenty.
But now prepare for a real disap
pointment! Miss Fay Tincher, a favorite movie
queen here, refuses to kiss longer
than one foot of winding reel.
"No kiss," asserts Miss Tincher,
"has a right to be more than one foot
on any film."
Miss Loretta Blake, another star,
adds that there's a lot of difference
between kissing on stage and in real
"You see," she said, "when an act
ress on the stage is being kissed, it
isn't because she wants to be caress
ed or derives any enjoyment from the
osculatory process. She is kissed be
cause the artistry of the play de
mands it, to indicate emotion on the
part of the stage characters.
"Such a kiss is purely impersonaL rf
It isn't really the actress who is be--
ing kissed, but the character she rep-
resents.' ' st
Miss Mary Alden, another screen -
favorite, has a word to add. ift
