MOVIES FEATURE PRETTY IRENE FENWICK,
BUT SHE PLAYS "LEGITIMATE," AS WELL
The girl who treads "the primrose
path" has never failed to interest
the human heart. An unknown girl,
many years ago, flashed upon Paris
all the glory, all the witchery of her
Camille, and Bernhardt became fa
mous overnight. And this winter
another Camille, Lily Kardos, has en
thralled New York.
In Edward Sheldon's play, "The
Song of Songs," Broadway has
watched a new way of woman's
witchery a way that has been
shown them by a slim, azure-eyed
beauty whose unheralded name is
Irene Fenwick. And Broadway has
clapped its hands as it has breath
lessly watched this pretty creature's
wiles, and so it is that she, too, has
become famous over night.
And now Irene Fenwick is going to
walk into filmland. She has signed
a movie contract covering her serv
ices for a term of years. Her con
tract is unique in that she is not
going to give up her title as a legiti
mate star but continue her stage
work and appear in pictures as well.
Miss Fenwick is in the early twen
ties but she has a long list of suc
cesses behind her, including "Haw
thorne of the U. S. A.," "The Family
Cupboard," "Peggy From Paris" and
"The Brass Bottle." Her first movie
venture will be in "The Commuters."
