Of course, nearly ev ery "movie" actress has a fad, but Miss Colwell has one that Is decidedly distinctive. Butterflies appeal to her in such a way that she has gathered a collection numbering thousands, and they are of every color under the sun. When out on location Director Fahrney has to keep one eye on Goldle and the other on the scene he Is directing, for It a butterfly crosses her vision the leading lady forgets all about the picture and makes a mul dash for the object of her fad.

At the Liberty, where she Is appearing in "The Little Dutch Girl," she is called upon to show emotion as well as gayety, and draw upon her fund of pathos as well as of humor.
