Revolutionary Motion Picture!

Surpassing the dreams of the most op-
timistic, attaining a goal that was deemed
IRAWFORD innpossible only a few months ago, Metro-
Goldwyn-Mayer has created in its gigantic
"Hollywood Revue" an entertainment that
will stand as a landmark in the annals of the
talking screen. Every important resource and
talent of show business contributed to its mak-
ing. It is star-studded with names, its choruses
are picked beauties, its voices represent the
choice of experts, its songs are from the genius
of the country's most famed, its dialogue was
conceived by the leaders of their craft, its set-
tings and costumes, its recording, each element
of this mighty entertainment is the product of
the top-notchers! Now playing at Grauman's

Chinese Theatre, Los

Look — We're Turning the Other
Cheek!

New York City.
Your criticism of "The Rainbow Man" is
both unjust and ridiculous.

The picture is well acted and very entertain-
ing, without one dull moment.

Please remember that not everyone has seen
"The Singing Fool." To me "The Rainbow
Man" was a real treat.

Therese Acer.

But Even Movie Gods Have
Socks to Darn!

Flushing, N. Y.

Why do motion picture actors get married?
It spoils all when you know that your fa\-orite
actor, John Gilbert, has married Ina Claire!

Why say that a( tors have a right to get mar-
ried as well as other people? Don't they know
when they start in pictures that they have to
dance to the tune the fans play and that they
can't displease their public? I wish something
would be done to stop them !

Violet Hopwood.

From Overseas Customers

London, Eng.

The first British talkie has made its bow.
"Kitty" came as a great relief after the many
American talkies, which, with one or two ex-
ceptions, were ordeals rather than entertain-
ments.

The voices and acting were most refreshing,
and before long British talkies will hold the
public as the American brand is now doing.
Hollywood — you're up against it!

J. O., A Voice from England.

Burnie, Tasmania.

Just to voice my appreciation of Photoplay,
as one of many thousands living in obscure
parts of the world, where even in the towns
there is little chance to see any of the big films
until they are ancient and mutilated, and are
endured while sitting on hard benches.

I read and reread Photoplay, even the ads,
and only loan the magazine on promises of
quick return.

As one \vho rarely has the chance to lose him-
self in the lu.\ury of a modern theater with a
first class film (I dare not hope to see and hear
a talkie!), I am grateful for the magazine which
weaves so much romance into the lives of lonely
people in a new country!

Raoul Isted.

Bouquet? It's a Garden!

Birmingham, Ala.

Hail to the Talkies! Admitting defects in-
evitably attendant upon their incipiency, the
combination of great screen acting and sound
effect is rich, stimulating, captivating!

"The race is to the strong," and this new,
virile, vital Art will some day write its name
upon the pages of those Annals which Man's
all-conquering skill is fashioning into a History
of artistic and mechanical prowess. Silent,
some pictures would leave but an evanescent,
negligible impression. Under the spell of
Sound, these same productions are Gorgeous
Events in the emotional and esthetic conscious-
ness of thousands of ardent lovers of Motion
Pictures who are watching this Bud of the
Cinema Hothouse blossom into a superb
flower !

May it never fade, nor its petals droop !

Stay Frenchy, Maurice!

Winona, Minn.

I was born and brought up in the shadow of
the Eiffel Tower. I know Paris — his Paris, my
Paris — for its gaiety, its light, love and laugh-
ter.

I know it for its sorrow and its heartaches,
for, after all, it is human, this pulsing, throb-
bing city.

Last night I saw ]\Iaurice Chevalier in "In-
nocents of Paris." His charming voice and
personality deserve all the praise he has re-
ceived, but may he stay French!

Please don't Americanize him. Don't give
him American roles in American stories — there
are enough fine American actors for that.
Let him continue to play roles like his first —
the lives of the French. Merci.

LoiSE Bertolet.

They'll Die for That Dear Garbo!

Dallas, Tex.

Well, well! For once, maybe, you have told
us just what a star looks like, without any
ilattery. In August Photopl.'W there was an
article about the girl who played Garbo. In
the story Garbo gels a lot of socks, while the
little De Vorak is cornplimented on every
hand. If this is the real Garbo, I am a greater
admirer of hers than ever, and that's saying
lots!

Here's a star that doesn't care for publicity
or beautiful clothes, and she is criticized for it.
She is just herself outside the studio, and not
one of these unreal pieces of perfect humanity.
I believe that Greta Garbo is one of the great-
est actresses the screen has ever seen or ever
will see !

Bernadine Allen.



Seattle, Wash.

On Page 51 of .August Photoi'LAy you ha\c
a few things to say about that great artist,
Greta Garbo, which are not true. First, the
great Garbo does not dress in "a careless man-
ner." Second, it is neither for "solace" nor
for "spite" that Greta Garbo has been chiun-
mier than ever with Nils Asther.

Greta Garbo had all the chance in the world
to marry John Gilbert. Of the two, as far as
love is concerned, he loved her most.

Hereafter, when writing about the "beauti-
ful Garbo," please be a Httle more considerate
in your writings, because we (all the fans) who
love her, like to see nice things written about
her, as not anything to the contrary is true,
anyway. So why lie about that famous,
e.xotic beauty, Greta Garbo — blonde, statu-
esque and beautiful? May she always remain
in the movies. One who adores her.
