Star Comedian Again In Favor “Lazy Bones,, Stepin Fetchet Gets New Chance In Movies Hollywood (OXS) —Reports have it that Stepin Fetchlt, a subdued and chastened young man, has re turned to the Fox Movietone Stud io. It la claimed that anew chapter is being written into the hiatory of the professional career of that languorous Senefcamhlan w li o surely must have been the living model for ‘La/.y Bones*, the an them of the lethargic.” As the story runs Lionel Barry more, the distinguished actor, di rector artist and critic,, is quoted us saying; "The late Bert Williams, at the peak of his form, was n* v*>r half as good as Stepin Fetoliit.’ 1 Concerning that statement, how ever, many will rise to dispute it. However, Barrymore is in scene after scene with the Negro comic in “Carolina* - which is by way of being the screen version of Paul Green's “The House of Connelly” and gets an • ever increasing kick out of each succeeding sequence. "Stepin, without even trying," says Mr. Barrymore, "could steal a scene fmm any. living man or woman.” Who lie Is Stepin Ketch it. in case you 1 nve forgotten lilm, la the colored com edian who reached his vcnlth some four years .ago In "Hearts in Dixie” when the talkies were young and who went Hollywood so high, wide and handsome that he eased him self ifnominously right out of pic tures and the film colony. In a year, while the going was still good, he rose from obscurity to virtual stardom. Picture after picture, featuring him, smashed box-office records. Hut Stepin couldn’t stand the prosperity. II" was a concrete and concentrated example of an actor who couldn't stand the pace or weather o boom. Stepin Fethit did all manner of! things that made him the laughing stock of everybody. At one time lie owned four automobiles of the hie gest and costliest tnodt Is and had a different chauffeur in a different uniforms for eaeh ear.

In New York, so the story goes, Stepin ran into Winfield Sheehan on Broadway Broadway runs all tin* way up to Harlem although It i' not u certainty that Mr. Sheehan does, Stepin was very much off the gold standard this day.
