Shy Smile Wins
Break For Star
Of Capitol Film
It takes more than a smile to re
tain a starring position in moving
pictures but a smile is often im
portant in making the first step. At
least Gary Cooper, who. with > ancy
CarreII. stars in “The Shopworn An
gel,” the Capitol theater feature for
today, made the grade with a smile.
Cooper didn't need a screen test
when ho got tho big “break.” He
was projected into a conference of
screen executives so t,udder ly that
he stammered arid smiled. That
j>mile won. It landed him a contract
ami sent him »e!l along the way to
a career.
In the court* of two jeer s, he his
reached a posit on on the Paramount
"lot,” where all feminine .tars are
d manurng his services as leading
man. Hii first w’ork for Paramount
was as a newspaper reporter In "It,”
(Ura Bow’s lirst starring vehicle.
Then he was cast as the harum
scarum hero of "Children of Di
vorce,” in which Esther Ralston and
Clara Bow were co-starred. He also
pla.ved in “Wings.’
As a result of his work iu these
productions, the studio official* de
cided to star tooper in Westerns and
he made hi.- stellar debut in “Arizona
Boynd.” His next Paramount star
ring vehicle was “Navada” and then
he was given the title role ru “Beau I
baht ear’’ and. later, in “Jhc Legion
of the Condemned.” Since then he j
ha* bad many important parts.
In “Tho Shopworn Angel,” he
plays the part of an honcst-thmki:ig !
buy from the country on hi* way to
Prance to fight tor Democracy, lie
meets a pretty Broadway butterfly,
plajed by Nancy Carroll, and falls
in love with her, refusing to see the
sordid i ide of tii5 life she is leading,
bhe returns his aitection but has
some difficulty getting free of her.1

‘Man, Woman and
Wife’ Drama of
Crime, at Queen
Due of the screen’s most dramatic
pictures of underworld life i* to be
seen here at the Queen tinier v-liere
it will open today, 'the picture i*
“Man. ttoman end Wife,” a Infveraal
production, starring Norman Kerry
and featuring Pauline Starke.
Psiug the battle front and tb»
underworld cf New York a back

dous romance centering around five
persons. Ihc happiness of each is
{•• wound up in the fate of th-j others
that gret-t dramatic interest and
urpense rc-ult.-. 1 he ending a hows
fearlessness cf mo' >•> custom on the
o'rt of Director Edward Laewml*.
when the picture close* in a realistic
climax that i* said to be one of th*
most unusual ever screened.
“Man, Woman and Wife,” is not an
ordinary type of picture, according
to Lae in rule. “I attempted to depict
truthfully the story of « man who**
every buffet by life reacted on *
number of other person*.” s**d the
director. “The *itu*t on« arc d'f i
ferent from tho«e generally enroun- i
tcred in a motion picture. I tried to’
make th» players respond to them j
in a way that was suitable to the I
' -^ra— ...
st'iry. Kerry and Mias Starke both
gave me unusual portrayals. As a
matter of fact the entire cast did ex
ceptional work."
In the supporting cart are Marian
Nixea, Kenneth Harlan, Crauford
Kent and Byron Douglas. The pic
ture is from an original screen story
l*y Charles A. Lojruc who also wrote
the adaptation and continuity. The
theme deals with the lack of per
sons! courage of the hero and h»w
ho overcomes his fear, a subject w ith
almost universal appeal.
