public will hear only a well modulated,
emotional voice.

I have in mind one talkie in which a very
well known actress was starred, and I must con-
fess that the slang, the careless manner of
spealdng, and the lapses from good English
caused me to frame a few unpleasant epithets.
It left me with a bad impression.

Ralph Marie Audrieth.

Speak Up, Lon Chaney

Pittsburgh, Pa.

While reading over the letters in your de-
partment, I noticed that L. J. N., from Tulsa,
Okla., stated that Lon Chaney may be "the
man of a thousand faces," but with talldes he
would have only one voice.

If he had only one voice, that would not
make him lose his appeal. He could speak
with an accent, lisp, or in a sing-song way. He
could even have other men (and perhaps
women) voice-double for him. That would
give him more than one voice. There, L. J. N.,
you see he would be the man of more than one
voice.

But before he tries any of those, I sincerely
hope he speaks \'ia the talkies with his natural
voice. Lon Chaney is my favorite actor and it
would be the thrill of thrills to hear his voice.
I'm for talkies — especially when they bring me
his voice— WHEN.

Give us more and more of Lon Chaney — the
actor of actors.

Sympathy for Mabel Norniand

Temple, Texas.
I want to thank you for the beautiful article,



"The Butterfly Man and the Little Clown," in
the July Photoplay. It is the most human and
sympathetic article that has appeared in your
magazine in a long time.

I have always loved Mabel Normand, and
wondered why none of the film magazines men-
tioned her serious illness. I'm so glad to know
that Adela Rogers St. Johns and Photoplay
have not forgotten my beloved Mabel. Bless
her heart! I am praying for her recovery, and
also that Lew Cody may be restored to health.
Martha E. Kennon.

Brickbat for Tonsil Close-Ups

Coatesville, Pa.

Part talkies, suddenly switching from voice
to sub-title, are absurd. But I'm for the
evolved product! The producers have shown
commendable discretion in giving voice to the
deserving; in putting over Edward Everett
Horton's comedies and others, so much more
amusing than slapstick — to an adult.

But, alas, they are not so discriminating as
one might wish, in bestowing vision on some
entertainers whose happy medium was, and
ever should be, the radio. I refer to jazz
singers whose talent is a jewel in crude setting;
to male quartets whose rendering of "Man-
dalay" and "Asleep in the Deep" is a joy when
the muscular contortions and distortions
requisite to a soulful rendition are charitably
lost in broadcasting, so that one may enjoy the
song with no conflicting urge to submerge the
singer.

But when the talkies indiscreetly present
close-ups of the jazz caverns mth dental sta-
lagmites and stalactites, I feel like a Jonah and
long for a dial with which to turn off the weird,
offending vision of the "wail." I believe there

The Flappers of Hollywood

Morrill, Kan.

Anotlier score for Photoplay. That was a
great article, "Home Rules for Holly^vood
Flappers." If only all girls could read it,
especially those who think it smart to smoke,
drink, and stay out all hours of the night, and
think nothing whatever of the opinions of their
parents.

I am just a flapper myself and believe in
having good times, but not to be unreasonable.
Some girls, boys too, are always quoting what
Hollywood would do. They seem to think the
stars' real life is like the characters they por-
tray on the screen.

That article was as good as any lecture, and
I am glad it showed the real life of the coming
young flapper stars. We love them all and are
watching them closely. I still think more of
Hollywood than e%er; and those who are
always talking against Hollywood — well, I will
have another good argimient for them.

Margaret Mickey.

A Vote for Golden Silence

Northport, N. Y.

Alas, what is becoming of our good old-
fashioned movies? Is there a producer who
wants to make a gold mine? Simply adx'ertise
that his theaters give only the silent drama —
no talkies.

Many of my friends deplore the passing of
the silent movie, where one's eyes brought the
picture and description to one in silent, restful
enjoyment. Now one has to elongate one's
ears to unravel what is being said by voices
that are anything but pleasant. The canned
music, which has taken the place of the organ
and orchestra, is extremely annoying to me,



and I am sure to all people of a certain refine-
ment of taste.

Producers, please let us have more of the
golden silence and less of the canned noise, and
may we see the revival of such glorious pictures
as "The Volga Boatman," " Scaramouche,"
and "Resurrection."

A big bouquet for Photoplay, which I read
ever}' month.

A Tribute to the New Mary

Kansas City, Kan.

I have just seen one of the greatest individual
performances of several years through picture-
going. I would like to make this a tribute to a
woman whose film appearances have usually
left me notoriously unmoved.

In "Coquette," Mary Pickford gives a por-
traj'al which I shall place among my great
theater moments. It will remain in my mem-
ory along with Emil Jannings' "The Patriot,"
Belle Bennett's "Stella Dallas," and Bessie
Love's immortal Hank of "The Broadway
Melody."

He Finally Heard Chevalier

Chicago, ni.

Six years ago I was living in Paris, and my
only desire was to see and hear Maurice
Chevalier, who was for a long time the idol of
that capital. But my modest situation and
earnings did not permit me to buy a theater
ticket, so I came to the United States %\ithout
seeing the greatest entertainer of France.

Last week I went to the United Artists
Theater to see him in "Innocents of Paris."
Of course I had seen his photograph a thousand
times; I knew the history of his life; I had an
idea of how he looked — but what a thrill when
I heard his voice!

Thanks to the mo\'ies and to the talkies. I
owe them one of the happiest moments of my
life. Renee Del age.





Ann Pennington may have felt that too much attention has been
centered on her pedal extremities. At any rate she went and
bobbed her hair the other day. But judging by the direction of
Archie Mayo's gaze it will be a long time before anyone notices the

new bob!
