SUCCEEDING IN- THE MOVIES BY JUANITA
HANSEN, HIGH SCHOOL GIRL WHO: MADE GOOD.
Miss Juanita Hansen
There are many.girls who have the
idea that the life of a "movie queen'-.!
would make the proverbial bed of
roses seem like a rock pile.
Such is not the case 'and "the girl
who enters the movie field with that
idea will soon be disillusionized. Hard
work is one of the great elements of
success in the movies. It is the girl
who is willing to post 24 hours a day
if necessary in order to finish a pic
ture on time that wins "the a'dmira
tion of her directors, and is thought
of when a new lead is desired.
For days at a time,, I have had to be
on hand with my make-up on.jiressed
for the part at the studio at 6 am.
The whole company had to be there,
but there were few grumblers. Of
course, this- isn't the regular thing
but you must expect it
Don't get an inflated idea of your
own importance. I cannot impress
this too .strongly, on girls desiring to
.enter Qlb -jfilm -yoEbL- --I- haye-seeacli
more girls lose.. out because, witH,
their first 'important part, they asr
sumed the, airs of a Sarah Bernhardt
and considered themselves too good
to associate with the rest of the com
pany. They make themselves dis
liked by insisting on the best dress
ing rooms, having fits of tempera
ment, refusing to take orders from
the director and wanting to re-write
scenarios to suit themselves. Avoid
this above ail things.
