MARY FULLER, THE FAMOUS MOVIE QUEEN,
BARELY ESCAPES ARREST
JiZG l7JLfGfcirIlS Jl&JLJ&VU,&,i
T Mary is still trembling!
A bad, bad man on Fifth Avenue
dared to come up and roughly ejac
ulate, "You're under arrest, Miss!"
And then when the crowd gathered
and commenced to hiss and storm
she simply covered her face with her
hands and wept. By that time
but here's the whole story.
In "The Girl "Who Had a Soul,"
there is a pickpocket scene fn which
Mary Fuller, who plays the role of
a girl of the underworld attempts to
pick a woman's pocket book on
Fifth Avenue. Mr. Lucius Hender
son, her director, arranged to have a
realistic version shown on the
screen and therefore, set the props
on Fifth Avenue. He selected no
other spot than the corner of 42d
Street in front of the big library.
Of course, Mary picked the pock
et, but not of a real pedestrian. So
when the clever detective who is sta
tioned thereabouts saw the act he
"nabbed" poor Mary with a zealous
ness which she did not relish. It took
some explanation on the part of the
Universalites to release the fright
ened movie queen but then they all
had a good laugh.
"The Girl Who Had a Soul" is a
three-reel Victor drama by Elaine
Sterne featuring Mary Fuller. Matt
Mooie is also in the cast,
