SPECIAL FOR SAT
A couple of weeks ago the Thanfcouser
company saw a likely looking
fat man in an electrician's overalls,
took him over to the new Rochelle
studio and gave him the star part
in a picture!

Tlhanhouser instance was likely the
first in which such a "find" was given
a feature acting part. The "find" was !
John Wallace, who weighs 350
pounds and caused no end of laughter
in "Why babe left home," as the
finished film was called. The part is
of a fat boy who is disinherited by his
own fatiher, and who tries to make a
living by carrying a restaurant sign
reading, "you can tell by looking at
me that I eat at Donnelys."
