How Acting Is Made Just Play For Children in Film Studios Method Used for Putting Three Year-Old Star Through Her , Paces. WORKS WITH ENTHUSIASM Little Mary Sunshine Does Just What She Is Told, Without Self-Consciousness. It lian frequently been noted that children, especially small children, seem to act with less sclf-con-sclousness and more abandon for tho motion pictures than on the stage. Inquiry hns been made as t why this Is true, and there, comes a, perfectly natural answer: vVhen acting for tho screen the child acts In the presence of iwople with whom It It well acquainted, and has no embariasimcnt or con sciousness pf ucting. In fact, the children for motion pictures act Just hs naturally as they would act In Piny, becausa-thcie Is no oue look ing on who would make them self ooiisclous. Just how the child works on the screen Is shown In following one of thein through n day at the studio. Kittle Mary ijunshlne, the three-yeut-nld child star of tho I'nthe-Halboa forces, offers a typical example of the way In which children arc put through their paces, llaby Mary's working dny Is ftoiu 9 until 4, with an hour and u half off for an after noon nap. The child works with Henry King as director. One day recently she arrived at the studio In a very, great hurry. Why She Hurried. "In a hurry because you're five minutes lato?" questioned King, as he carried her In his arms on to the stage. "Yes," chirped tho child, "mustn't be late." While a motherly maid "made-up" tho diminutive star, Mr. King, seated beslda her, wont carefully over the ccno which was to open the day's work In this wise: "Mary, you're an orphan baby to day, same as you wero estcrday, and tho bad old woman will put you to bed with tho other poor little or phans. She's a cross, bad, old wom an and you aro terribly afraid of her. aren t you, baby?" "I Is,!' was the star's comment, showlrv that she had grasped thu "action" so far. "And when she has put you to bed, you'll mako n faco at her when she goes away, just to show her that you're not afraid of anybody. You're not afraid of anybody, are you?" continued King. "1'se not afraid of you or any body." Two rehearsals are needed because Baby followed a little too closely tho Instructions to mako a face at "tho bad old woman," and had to be admonished In this wise: "Not qulto so wicked, llaby." Tho cameras clocked, Baby and her tormentor pass through the door and on to tho "set." Dragged along by the hand, to the accom paniment of "perfect" squeals. llaby teaches her cot. Is unceremoniously packed In and .grimaces In good ol der as the dragon departs. Mad for Keeps! "Kiss me, Haby," whispers the now penitent "bad old woman," bending over the star, when the scene was ovci. "You's out a' my life, bad old woman." comes the xtnitllng lejoln dtr, as. nose In air, llaby moves on majestically to her next scene. A small colored boy, black as the proverbial are, is waiting In a bath tub. King goes again Into detail. "I wunt you to scrub this llttlo boy white, llaby," Is his brief Instiuc tlon. "It won't come off, Henny," she declares. "You try. Baby. Try hard and It will," replies "Uenny" King. "You'll see. Won't come off." Kqulpped with a rubber brush nncl much fo.im, she tries hard and bath babies enjoy themselves thoroughly, though now and nguln a hard dig from brush brings a squeal from the pickaninny and all the ulillc the cameras are turning. "Out," this fiom King, and Baby stops, a gleam of tiiumph In her yes. and gazes at the soaking black boy. Hhc was right ami "Henny" was wrong. "Time for by-by, Baby." a moth erly maid warns the little star, and without further comment. still damp from her efforts to clear up the stain on the Race of Ham, Baby gets off to a dry nightie and a doze.
