BOPBY HARRON'S BROTHER
PLAYS IN PICKFORD FILM
One of the principal players in
Mary Pickford's latest United Ar
tists' production, "Through the Back
Door," is John Harron, brother of
the late Robert Harron who died in
New York recently as the result of
an accidental gun-shot wound. The
picture will be presented at the
Grand today for the last time.
Johnnie Harrison is playing the
part of Billy Boy in "Through the
Back Door," around which role is
built the love interest in the story.
As th eseion of a wealth family sum
mering on Long Island, Billy Boy
meets Mary Pickford, in the charac
ter of Jeanne, and his sympathy and
help d omuch to alleviate the trials
and tribulations that befall the little
heroine when she accepted a position
as domestic in her own mother's
home.
There is a striking resemblance be
tween Johnnie Harron and his late
brother, and he gives to the charac
ter of Billy Boy that same appealing
sympathy that was always the out
standing feature of Robert Harron's
work. In fact, those who see John in
this picture will gain the impression
that much of the glory enshrining
Robert Harron's name is now re
flecting in the work of his younger
brother.
Johnnie Harron is eighteen years
of age. He bejran his career as a
photo-player in his knee-trouser
days at the Griffith Studio in Holly
wood. Whenever D. W. Griffith need
ed a boy for a part in any production,
Robert Harron would always speak
up and say, "Let Johnnie do it." And
Johnnie did, with the result that he
received his training from the master
of all screen technicians.
Was Hurting All the Time
Kidney trouble saps the vitality
and strength of man and woman. It
causes backache, headache, stiff
joints, sore muscles, shooting aches
and pains. John F. Brooks, 712 S.
17th St., Omaha Neb., writes: "My
back was hurting me all the time
more or less" and I had a pain in my
icrht side. Since taking Foley Kid-
nev Pills I feel no pain at all. My
back feels good and strong, better
than it has in 25 years." Also re
lieve bladder weakness.
