Mabel Norman led her sup
porting players a merry pace
near Grafton, W. Va., where
several scenes were taken for
the latest Goldwyn Picture,
"Back to the Woods," which
comes to the Orpheum Theatre,
Thursday, June 26. Herbert
Rawlinson,. her leading man, is
six pounds lighter, he says, due
to the Goldwyn star's determi
nation to keep the company "on
the go" after the director had
called it a day for scene-taking
and in the morning before work
was started.
"A three-mile hike after
breakfast was just one of the
many stunts Miss Normand
mapped out for us," Mr. Rawlin
son told an interviewer between
scenes at the Fort Lee studies.
"And, of course, there had to be
dancing every night at the
hotel. We couldn't utter a com
plaint, for she was the only
woman in the party, and it
would have seemed cowardly to
balk at anything she ordered for
what she called amusement and
"Miss Normand made herself
a great favorite among the
children at Grafton. They re
cognized her the first day we
arrived and all during our stay
they gathered around her. But
for her constant association
with tbe kiddies the rest of us
wouldn't have had a moment to
oufselves. Her strenuous pro
gram cost me about six pounds,
but I can't say I didn't enjoy it."
Mr. Rawlinson, prominently
identified as leading man with
big screen productions, is mak
ing his first appearance in
"Back to the Woods."
C. W. and E. J. Ellenson and
R. S. Richards were in Cotton
