TWO MOVIES MAKE BOW
Tlie Common Law 7 Scores
With Con nie Bennett
at Her Best
J By A. M. JAMIESON
~ This Bennett girl named Constance, who, of all the house,
Items to be the real daughter of her father, comes back to
[Washington this week in a glittering Park Avenue-Latin
Quarter film, “The Common Law,” taken somewhat casually
and sedately out of Robert W. Chambers once-celehrated best
Beller.
It go happens that this glamorous young actress has become
about as distinctive an individuality as is Marlene Dietrich,
and that in Washington she is one of the most potent hox
office lures—especially with the feminine contingent—that
the films have to offer.
A Parisian Locale
For that reason it ts fairly cer
tain that R-K-O-Keith’s, where
“The Common Law” is being pre
sented. will be packed this week
with the ardent Bennett follow
ing. It has snapped already into
high pressure at the box office
and will remain there.
The essence of Chambers, who
wrote delightfully risque novels
in those far-off days before the
Maxwell Bodenheim-Ursula Par
rott era, is to be found in “The
Common Law.” which effects
some sort of an artistic union be
tween sophisticated New York so
ciety and Parisian art circles as
we, in transatlantic innocence like
to think they are.
The film is gilded and more
highly polished even than the
novel, some of whose semi-realistic
qualities are conveniently over
looked by the Hollywoodians, and
most of whose sparkling dialogue
—one of the outstanding features
of Chambers’ work —is overlooked
entirely. “The Common Law,”
however, sticks to its text. Va
lerie West (the role played by
Miss Bennett) is a young woman
with a past, although she is not
in the least bit “tarnished” or
even disturbed by it. Not even
love “disturbs” Miss Bennett very
much. As an actress, she ap
parently lacks emotional poig
nancy, to say the least, but this
Is an essential element in her
charm and glamor.
The Famous Ball
The film is excellently produced,
running the wide range that the
public likes —from Connie Bennett
in the latest Paris gowns to
Connie Bennet in au naturel as
an artist’s model, for instance.
A double offering on bargain
day. The scenes at the Mont
martre ball, the artists’ annual
revelry, are also well done, al
though we suspect the censor has
laid his zeavy hand on some of
them.
It should be said in conclusion
that Joel McCrea, playing the
role of John Neville. Connie's
"boy friend,” does some of the
outstanding work of the movie.
The staccato whip-lash of his
voice is at once a challenge and
a contrast to the compelling lan
guor of Miss Bennett, and the
two of them should make a per
manent team.
There is a good supplemental
bill at R-K-O Keith’s, including
"Crashing Reno,” a clever comedy
with Harry Gribble and Daphne
Pollard.
Loyalty Is Theme

•rring husband Is the theme of

Shannon Advance
Is Hollywood
Sensation
By HARRISON CARROLL
HOLLYWOOD, July 25.—0 f all
the recent success stories, Peggy
Shannon’s is the most dramatic.
Called in to pinch-hit for Clara
Bow, the red-headed stage actress
faced a forlorn prospect. Yet
she came through with distinc
tion in “The Secret Call,” and
now is about to play her fourth
part in quick succession, the lead
opposite Clive Brook in “Work
ing Girl.”
This story is being evolved
under Zoe Akin’s practiced touch
from the stage play, “Blind Mice.”
To quote Paramount, it is about
“beautiful metropolitan shop-girls
whose youthful eagerness for ex
citement carries them into real
life drama.”
None of which, I wager, will
be more exciting than Miss Shan
non’s rapid conquest of Holly
wood. so long as there are ex
periences like hers, you are never
going to be able to convince
young people that this is the
toughest racket in the world.
Bravo, Al!
Under the new red-tape regime
of getting in and out of studios,
dozens of extra policemen have
been added to patrol the lots.
Visiting Fox this week, Al Jol
son took one look at all the uni
forms.
“Ye Gods!” he exclaimed.
“When did they declare martial
law around here?”
Latest Gossip
Hedda Hopper has a neat way
of turning a phrase. Upon being
shown a picture of Clark Gable,
snapped on the bridle-path, she
remarked: “When you can look
at a man on a thoroughbred and
not say ‘What a good-looking
horse!’, then the man has it.”...
Speaking of horses, there is a
drinking trough on Hollywood
Boulevard in the middle of the
business section of the film capi
tal.
It’s a holdover from days gone
by. The Humane Society keeps
it up now, and dogs are chiefly
benefited.. .Nowadays, a studio
doesn’t fail to take up an option.
It declares a moratorium...
Charles MacArthur has made
what many scenarists will con
sider a quixotic gesture. He has
asked to be taken off salary to
rewrite some of the dialogue for
“Lullaby.” Not only this, but he
has sent to New York for Ben
Hecht to come out and help him
do it. Perhaps the fact that
Helen Hayes (Mrs. MacArthur)
makes her screen debut in the
picture has something to do with
it. Still, M.-G.-M. officials are
probably stunned.. .All reports to
the contrary, Universal is said to
be determined to make “Once in
a Lifetime,” the Hollywood trav
esty.. .Gloria Swanson leaves
Paris today. She will be here
August 10.. .And another traveler
is Frederic March, who comes
back here from a year in New
York.

CONSTANCE BENNETT
WHO IS SEEN at the peak of her fortune in the
brilliant “Common Law” at R-K-0 Keith's this week.
Paul Lukas Seen
With Boardman
At Palace
Zoe Adkins' famous stage play,
“Daddy’s Gone A-Hunting,” has
been adapted by the author for
the screen, and serves as Paul
Lukas-Eleanor Boadman starring
vehicle, “Women Love Once.”
“Women Love Once” concerns
the life of a commercial artist
who is lured away from his wife
and daughter by a woman who
comes into his life as a patron
of the arts. After a period of
study abroad, he finds that he
cannot come home and take up
life as it once was. He roams
about with his art sponsor, the
beautiful Juliette Compton, until
things at home take on such a
turn that awakes him to his true
senses, and the end finds every
one happy.
On the Palace stage, “Star
dust,” a Capitol Theater (New
York) revue, is the attraction.

ments.
“Dodgem” front wheel drive cars,
There is the new old mill, the

coaster, the whip or the ferris
wheel. In addition there is the
midway house of fun, where even
the sphinx would laugh, the
shooting gallery, scores of de
vices in the penny arcade, etc.
A “Fashion Show”
Constance Bennett’s reputation
as Hollywood’s best dresser will
not suffer as a result of her new
role in “The Common Law.”
Gwen Wkkeling designed the gor
geous gowns the star wears. Pa
risian creations, with the result
that th? picture is a veritable
fashion show, in some of the
studio scenes they are not so
much in evidence.
New Head Dress
Eleanor Boardman, who plays
the feminine lead in “Women
Love Once.” now current at Loew’s
Palace Theater, wears a dreos in
the production made entirely of

Common Law” and “Secret Call”
Both Have Successful Debuts
'Secret Call'
Makes Hit
At Fox
I may be unduly sensitive but it
bums me up the way these movie
producers invariably make the
newspaper man in the script the
comedian, with a trick hat and
sly eye for the girls.
Os course, it is possible that we
are that way, but it looks more to
me like a low plot on the pro
ducers’ part to get even.
Outside of that the “Secret
Call” at the Fox is a good story.
The plot, involving a crooked poli
tician, the pretty daughter of his
ruined rival and her handsome
beau, moves right along with
plenty of action each minute.
Peggy Shannon, the pretty daugh
ter, is appealing as the crooked
politician’s Nemesis, and her suitor,
Richard Arlen, is manly and hand
some. Both attributes are sure to
go right to the heart of the
women in the audience who like
their heroes that way.
Not to be too critical, I won’t
mention that Peggy and her girl
friend seemed to me to be living
in elegance somewhat unusual
for poor but proud working girls.
Or that Miss Shannon’s wardrobe
was something to make the mouth
water. It is possible, of course,
that she has saved her clothes
from the days of her splendor
Anyway, in the night club scene
and the Juliet-Romeo scene at the
head of her stairs, she was too
lovely for words in her chiffons
and furs.
The comic newspaper man might
have stepped from any film I’ve
seen in the past 10 years. He
was funny and a newspaper man
and that was that.
On the stage Fanchon and
Marco with a bevy of fast-step
ping. easy.-to-look-at damsels were
both good to look at and pleasant
to listen to. Personally I enjoyed
the amusing little skit put on by
Bill and Harriet Hutchins as well
as any part of the show. Nothing
new especially, but they were
funny.
The Fox Theater was crowded
to the limit yesterday; the “Secret
Call” was a real drawing card.
I had to sit in the balcony up
near the roof and I went early.
It is a good picture, well
played by capable actors (even
that comedian was something like
some newspaper men I’ve seen at
their worst moments) and sure
to tickle the fancy of the f ans
who like a bit of plot with their
movies.—R. S.
Infant Oddities
Answer
For Movie
Hollywood's central casting bu
reau. which is used to receiving
orders for such odd objects as one
legged Chinamen and pugilists
who can sing, was startled out of
its complacency when an order
came in from Warner Brothers
for 10 new-born babies.
William Wellman, who was di
recting "Night Nurse.” with Bar
bara Stanwyck, had a maternity
ward sequence in which the young
arrivals play a prominent part.
After scouring around the city,
the casting bureau secured the
aid of the Los Angeles County Hos
pital. But the law laid down—
new-born babies are “verboten” for
film work. However, they secured
a group of infants ranging from
25 to 60 days old. Three of them
were negro, one Japanese, one
Chinese, two Indian and three
Mexican.
According to law, the children
were allowed to be on the set only
two hours, out of which only 20
minutes might be used in actual
shooting. In order to get every
thing in that short space of time,
the company worked all morning
with dolls rehearsing the scene
and were ready to go through it
without a hitch when the babies
came on at 2 p. m.
Arlen’s Hair Cuts
In order to keep his hair the
same length during the filming
of the “Secret Call," Richard Ar
len was forced to have his hair
cut twice a week for several
weeks while on location. Mr. Ar
len is featured in Paramount’s
"Secret Call,” now at the Fox
Theater.

The Tragic Story of Mrs. Mooney
A couple of years ago Mrs. Mooney picked up a news
paper and turned to a column she always read. Modesty
forbids me to mention the author of the column, so I will
say nothing about myself at this point. At any rate, she
began to read. And as she read an idea came to her.
That column dealt with one of the oldest of the old-time
insurance rackets. A saloon-keeper would pick out the
shabbiest bar flies he could ffrid and insure their lives for
as much as possible. He would pay the initial premium
and then feed the poor stews all the liquor they could con
sume. The initial payment was usually all that was re
quired. Because, after several months of plenty of liquor
for nothing, the insured men were dead, and the saloon-
keeper was that much richer.
Mrs. Mooney put down the <
paper and wagged her dome
like a doggie. This, she felt,
was an excellent thought for
her business. And the more
she thought, the better she
liked it.
She was the owner of a
speakeasy on Eleventh Avenue
—and what a joint it was!
Her homemade whisky went
for one dollar a pint, and for
the big shots who patronized
the bar. 20 cents a large shot.
Naturally there was a Mr.
Mooney. Without a Mr. Mooney
a Mrs. Mooney wouldn’t have
much to talk about. But it had
been a long time since Mr.
Mooney had had anything to
say about the manner in which
the Mooney household should
run.
“Strictly Business’’
As far as Mrs. Mooney was
concerned. everything was
strictly business. Any time her
husband wanted a drink he had
to lay his money on the line.
He was treated exactly the
same as any other customer.
And inasmuch as there wasn't
an hour of the day that Mr.
Mooney didn't want a drink,
you can readily see that he was
one of his wife’s best patrons.
The husband, incidentally,
was a truck driver. By judicious
inquiry into the Einstein theory,
he had learned that by work
ing one week he could make
enough to drink for two or
three weeks. He was now wait
ing for a new Einstein or a
new theory that would do away
with that one week's work.
Such was the state of affairs
in the Mooney menage when
Mrs. Mooney read the column
about insuring an elderly souse
and plying him with drinks...
That same afternoon she
found her man. Snooky was his
name and he’d been hanging
around the neighborhood for
years. He went in for odd
chores and any minor work
that would bring him the price
of a drink.
It didn’t take Mrs. Mooney long
to reach a very satisfactory busi
ness arrangement with Snooky.
She would take out a nretty
policy on his life with herself,
of course, as the beneficiary In
return Snooky could have all
'the liquor he wanted absolutely
free of charge—provided, also,
that he did all the odd chores
arcund the saloon. Leave it to
Mrs. Mooney to get. a shade
more than the bnigain called
for.
Smooth Running
Within a week, everything
was running smoothly. A kindly
insurance doctor okayed the
policy without seeing the
patient because he saw a SSO
note instead. I guess it was
just as well, however, for the SSO
note was much prettier .han
Snooky could ever hope to be.
You can readily understand
that, as far as Snooky was con
cerned, Mrs. Mooney was the
"ery soul cf generosity. T n the
morning she insisted that
Snooky have a bottle to fix him
up from the effects the night
before. In the afternoon she
pressed a bottle upon him in or
der that he might do his work
better. And at night she
wouldn’s dream of letting him
retire without a bottle for a
nightcap.
% To Snooky this must have
seemed like the promised land
True’ his old friends were
dropping off one by one from
the results of too much bad
liquor. But that didn't seem
to worry him any. He just ac
cepted his bottles with a smile

and a word of thanks to Mrs.
Mooney.
“You've been the very soul
of kindness,’’ he assured his
benefactress. “It sure is great
of you to brighten up the last
days of a poor old man like
myself.”
Mrs- Mooney was right on
hand with the soft soap.
“Now. now, Snooky.” she told
him, "that’s been the way with
me ever since I was no bigger
than a mite. What's the good
of living. I say, if you can't
do something for them that
needs it? Will you have an
other bottle, Snooky?”
A Real Shock
To make matters just that
much more cheerful, her hus
band provided Mrs. Mooney
with the shock of her life. He
almost stopped drinking! No
longer did he sit around the
saloon all day. No longer did
he slap his 20 cents on the
. bar with unceasing regularity.
True, he did no more work
than usual But he told his
wife he had taken to walking
through the park. A man of
his years, he said, must have
more fresh air and exercise.
Mrs. Mooney was rather
proud about that. After all,
this man had been with her a
long time and there must have
been some sense of devotion to
him deep down in her heart.
That he was getting smarter
with the years gave her a lit
tle satisfaction. Besides, it
gave her something new to talk
about.
A year passed and another
premium on Snooky's policy be
came due. Mrs. Mooney paid
it—but not without a trace of
annoyance. Snooky just as un
healthy as he had when she en
tered her arrangement with
him, but no more so. She
pressed more bottles upon him
and wondered how long he
could hold out before she
cashed out when he cashed in.
A few more months and Mr.
Mooney was suddenly taken
ill. They rushed him to a hos
pital. where the doctors didn't
require many instruments to
determine that he was dying
of acute alcoholism.
Mrs. Mooney was amazed.
As soon as she heard the news
she ran from the hospital and
dashed toward her saloon.
Snooky was the man to see
about this. Se’d soon find out
from Snooky whether Mr.
Mooney had been stealing any
of her liquor.
The Final Note
“Can you imagine that man
of mine?” she muttered as she
ran. “Fira tellin’ me he wasn’t
drinkin’—and windin’ up in a
hospital due to alcoholism. I
pray to God he don’t die. But
if he gets better I'll kill him.”
When she reached the saloon
she was further amazed. Snooky
was gone. Vanished into thin
air from the thick, as it were.
And the only thing he had left
was a note.
Mrs. Mooney read that note
through blinking eyes. Snooky
had gone, it seems, to the
country, where he could take
life easy. He was very sorry
for feeling as well as he did,
and he greatly feared that Mrs.
Mooney would have to continue
paying his premiums for some
time to come.
“You see, Mrs. Mooney,” he
wound up apologetically, “I
grew a little worried when I
saw all my old friends dying
from liquor. So I made a bar
gain with Mr. Mooney and sold
him all the bottles you gave me
at half price.” . . .
