New picture of the former Lubin player who has just been announced
as a star in the Fox photoplay program.
this reason the actors and actresses
are glad to receive letters from
sincere admirers with criticism and
comment on the manner in which '
they have appeared in pictures.
Hut they do not like the mush!
That Is something else again, as
M'qrria would put It. And they would
like to adopt some means of protec
tiononly they cannot think of any.
Anita Stewart Is one of the loud de
claimed against the mush note of
Gets Proposals and Candy.
Miss Stewart states that during the
last six months she has received
twentyproposals of marriage, three
offers of presents of pedigreed dogs,
twelve one-pound boxes of candy,
and she knows not how many re
Quests for a personal Interview ob
ject matrimony. Besides these, there
are many letters that use up all the
adjectives In the dictionary In the
efforts of the writers to tell how
great an actress Miss Stewart Is.
The men stars. It would seem, are
more annoyed by the mashers than
the women for the reason that silly
young girls form the bulk of their
correspondents. Francis Bushmin
tries to answer every note he re
ceives, and It keeps him busy. Car
lyle Blackwcll is a fairly busy Indi
vidual with the typewriter also.
None of tho actors want to offend a
patron of the pictures, but thev all
wish that the patron would write
only when she has something to say
that will be of value to tho actor.
