BESSIE LOVE TELLS
HOW LVCKY CHANCE
LED TO STARDOM
By BESSIE LOVE '
IN tfHH first place, I had no Idea
at all ever of becoming screen
actress; neither had I aspirations for
the stage. Even today my father Is
not inclined to take any too kindly to
tho thought of theatricals for a girl.
1 was enrolled In the Los Angeles
High School, very much engrossed in
getting nn education. Then tho family
physician told me that my health was
not up to standard. No moro books I
A complete rest from studies I And just
when I had set my heart on getting
through the course.
My mother heard my tearful story.
"That's all right, Bessie," she said.
"If you like you may go to work this
summer to take your mind away from
the classroom."
There was a knock on the door nnd
a neighbor entered. She saw my tears ;
for a moment sho listened to my mo
ther's explanation of them.
"I have nn Ideal" she Bald, cheerily.
"A friend of mine told me yesterday
that I can get n job in the movies if
I go to the Fine Arts studio tomorrow."
And then she asked my mother if she
might take me out with her.
ALL the way, to the studio my
grown-up friend talked about the
film Industry. She kbw no reason why
both of us should not get jobs ns
"extras" In tho huite crowd which D.
W. Griffith wns using In "Intolerance,"
When we arrived at the Fine Arts
studio my friend and I walked through
a hallway until we came to n door. My
friend knocked, while I stood behind
her, and barely noticed that she towered
several Inches above inc. A man opened
the door.
"You cannot see Mr. Griffith," he
said tersely.
It happened that I was standing im
mediately In front of the craf 1 of the
door. I heard what the man I d. My
heart sank, nnd I was listening at
tentively for a word of hope.
The man started to close tlrt door on
us, and the lock was just on the verge
of catching when' another man's voice
inside said :
"I would like to sec them. Please
show them in."
"Them?" answered the doorman In
surprise. "Thore's only one!"
Oh, no, there arc tWYa lady aud
a little girl."

to his assistant. "I could see her
