Then was no use talking. Felton's fumoiis "bean plays" were not the drawing card they onee bud been. "They ain't convincing; that’s what's iln* mailer." grunted old Jarvis. "Con stance and Alfred can't make love like they ti-cd to. I'll give them a little longer to make good, am! I ben — That meant only one tiling. The big three would be looking for new employment, and jobs were scarce in studios even for stars.

He was the director, and when any thing was not convincing lie was to blinm lie wa one of the best direr tors in the business but he was fall ing down miserably on the Job.

I*l rcetlng frequently calls for a deal of shouting through mega phone and pleadin. and cajoling, and Mien was tindbig it impossible to bo earnest iTi urging Alfred Eldrtdge to make realistic lo\*- to Ponstanoe. It was gall and wormwood to the director to havt those two stand In front of him and utter endearing terms ,ii i eml'fiue and even kiss |t seemed like a mockery of a thing dl vine. Allen was realizing why he huil truth' a failtir" of hi- own attempt to heei'me an actor lb- simply couldn't pretend lie bad to have his heart in whatever he was doing, and that was why the I’elton pictures wore poor.
