MONROE TODAY Director Sings To Get Players- In Proper Mood There are more ways than one j of bringing an actress to the point | of tears, but Robert Z. Leonard, | who directed “Time, the Come dian,” the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer production which shows at the Monroe Theatre today has perhaps the most distinctive me thod of any director in the mo tion picture industry. Mr. Leonard sings to his lead ing lady. He sings some lachrymose mel ody and since he has a very fine voice, having trained for the con cert stage one time, the actress becomes deeply affected and be gins to cry. This method is said to be much more effective than the use of just music. Mae Busch, who is playing a leading role in the picture, was subjected to this method during the filming of the production and she is said to have done some of the most effective emotional act ing of her career. The picture was adapted fo? the screen by Frederic and Fanny Hatton from the novel by Kate Jordan. The cast is headed by Lew Cody and Mae Busch and includes Ger trude Olmsted, Creighton Hals, Roy Stewart, Robert Ober, Pau lette Duval, Nellie Parker Spaul ding, Shannon Day, Rae Ethelyn, : David Mir, Templar Saxe, Frank , Elliott, George Periolat, Lillian Langdon, Jacques Abbott, Ger trude Bennett and Mildred Vin cent. TOMORROW Rin-Tin-Tin Saved Hotel From Fire Fire which threatened to wipe out the entire town of Victorville, California, was checked and final ly extinguished through the ef forts of the Rin-Tin-Tin company on location for the Warner Bros, production of “The Clash of the Wolves,” which shows at the Mon roe Theatre tomorrow. The fire was traced to an over heated iron in a tailoring shop next to the hotel where the troupe of about fifty which included di rector Noel Smith, the stars, Rin- Tin-Tin, June Marlowe and Charles Farrell, and technical , men and eowpunehers, were stay ing. The company was just ' finishing the evening meal in the hotel dining room when they were 1 disturbed by the barking of “Rmty,” who had been loeked in \ his master’s, Lee Duncan’s, room next to the tailoring shop until sftsr supper. As the? barking became more and more furious, Mr. Duncan in vestigated and found some smoke creeping in through the open window. Looking out, he beheld the roof of the one-story tailor ing shop next door a mass of flames and the side of the hotel beginning to burn. He gave the alarm at once and the company turned out. in force and managed to save the hotel, although the shop was completely consumed. Since the town was too small for a fire department, a bucket line was hastily formed and the sides and rdoms of the hotel and other buildings were hung with saturated blankets. About 10 o'clock the fire was out and, led by the mayor, the thousand or so inhabitants extended three cheers and a vote of thanks to “Rinty” and the company. A framed copy of this resolution has been added to the many awards of various kinds which adorn the walls and tables of his “office” and is, Lee Duncan assures us, one of his proudest possessions. ,*The Clash of the Wolves” was written by Charles A. Logue. The 3-pound baby daughter of Mrs. Mary Daly is doing nicely in an incubator in a New York hos pital, but its twin died.
