PARAMOUNT PEP 23 Caught by the Camera It was one evening in April, The morning had nearly past, The cameraman was on the job. To shoot Nita and “Pink” “at fast.” Nita Naldi and “Pink” Wingart, the latter in charge of publicity at the Long Island Studio, seem to be very busily engaged in rather humorous conversation. Nita is probably telling “Pink” of her new style creation, that of a towel on her head artistically draped with a black lace veil. As to “Pink’s” hat, well, it doesn’t belong to him. Gen, Lejeune Visits West Coast General John A. Lejeune, Commander of the United States Marine Corps, was a recent visitor at our West Coast Studio. It was his first visit to a motion picture studio and, coincidentally, the first actors he met were Leatrice Joy and Robert Edeson, who, like himself, are natives of New Orleans. Post No. 1 of the “New Orleans Exiles of America” was then and there organized between scenes of “The Silent Partner,” in which Miss Joy, Mi. Edeson and Owen Moore are featured. “The Silent Partner” is being directed by Charles Maigne, who, before becoming a motion picture .scenario writer and director, was a war correspondent. He was stationed at Vera Cruz when Gen. Lejeune, then a . Colonel, was in command of the Second Regiment of Marines in the 1914 occupation. For old time’s sake they had their pictures taken together on the set. Gen. Lejeune and his party went through the studio through the courtesy of Cecil B. De Mille. Sunrise Easter Services Filmed by Cruze Sunrise Easter services at the Hollywood Bowl, famous the world over, were filmed recently by James Cruze, producer of “The Covered Wagon,” for his new production, “Hollywood.” Among the latest well-known screen people to work in this picture were Stuart Holmes and Noah Beery, who appeared in these scenes, with Bull Montana and others. The Bowl is a magnificent natural amphitheatre in the hollow of the hills above Hollywood and the spectacle of the Sunrise service is one not to be forgotten by anyone who attends. The employment of hundreds of minor players made the effect in the screen shots most compelling. Mr. Cruze is rapidly bringing this splendid picture to a close with many exciting situations as well as those provocative of laughter. Very Good, Eddie This distinguished individual is our good friend and co-worker, Eddie Ellis, who was the property man with the Meighan company during the filming of “The Ne’er-Do-Well.” But his was is now am, for he has been promoted to property man in charge of the upper stage under George Van Winder at our Long Island Studio. When ypu hear a bell ring and then a clear melodious voice yell "quiet,” it is Eddie. No Ellis Island was named after Eddie. Eddie Ellis Star and Scenarist PEP’S cameraman in his wanderings around the West Coast Studio caught the above two prominent individuals engaged in conversation, namely, Tack Holt, star, and Clara Beranger, our well-known scenarist.
