got out of focus. Not so dumb if you can combine business and pleasure like that. Little Billy stood by trying to hold his own in an argument with Clarence Sunshine, another member of the cast. Although Clarence at the tender age of fifteen (and with a name like that!) weighs only two hundred and ninety pounds, he supplies a ton of comedy to "Oh, Baby!" "Hey, Billy, what's all this shootin' for? Does he owe you money? I asked. "Not that!" answered the diminutive star, "but what's worse. He says he's going to be a heavyweight fighter some day, and all I told him was that if that's so he's gotten away to a whale of a start!" Phone call for the press agent! On the wire was an editor who was up the previous day. At that time we called the picture "Charley's Niece," and he just heard that we had changed the title to "Oh, Baby!" "Why did you allow me to leave before it happened," he groaned. "For ten years it's been my ambition to be present at a title changing— just to know why it's done. And now you go and let me miss it by ten minutes!" Well, life can't be all sunshine — even for me. So, a trifle wilted in spirits, I went back to the set and waited for the next laugh !

"CNUGGLES," the smallest toy ^ poodle in the California canine world, plays an important part in the plot of "The Blind Goddess," Victor Fleming's forthcoming Paramount production. The poodle weighs less than four pounds, and is the pet of Esther Ralston in the picture. The light comedian. ooo ^7 ILMA BANKY will play ValV entino's leading lady in the "Son of the Sheik." We hope she's bedouin "The Sheik" than in some other films. FRANK "FATTY" ALEXANDER, weight four hundred and twelve pounds, stellar comedian of Standard comedies produced by Joe Rock, was married to Mary Druse, weight one hundred and forty pounds, of Red Wing, Wyo., last week. The wedding ceremony was staged at the Rock Rancho, Las Vegas, Nev. "Fat" Karr, three hundred and seventy-five pounds, and "Kewpie" Ross, three hundred and forty-eight pounds, film associates of the plump groom, served jointly as best men. Producer Rock gave the charming bride away. It looks as if Mary wouldn't be lonely. She's bound to see a lot of her husband. MARY PICKFORD'S "Sparrows" has been finished, after several months work.
