A MOVIE SCANDAL
Deaf mutes have again been shock
ed by reading the lip motions of act
ors in moving picture plays, films
which were thought to be highly

which the actors speak are as naugh

talented company should quit making
movies and get a Broadway engage
ment in the spoken drama. Puck.

Her husband appeared in court in

Shaver, did not take the stand and
deny one single word which, wag
