Advertising Section 109 She Dictates Her Own Terms Continued fr manager came over to Air. Boag while I was dancing and said, 'W ho is that girl? I'd like to get her to dance here permanently." Wasn't that a joke? Mr. Boag told him he couldn't pay me enough to buy my shoes." All this with the naive air of a child who comes home proudly to tell mother he has been promoted. But, again, you don't resent this in Gilda. I'm not sure just why, perhaps because her frankness is so allinclusive. Perhaps it's her eternal incredulous amazement at her success. Gilda frankly admits that money is her first consideration, rather than art. "I want to make all the money I can while the making's good," she declared, "because to-morrow the public may get tired of me." Still, she would not sign a longterm contract, with its guarantee of a certain income. Well — she might, but it would have to be a contract on her own terms ; she would play only in pictures that suited her, and she should have some choice in the supporting cast. Evidently all her terms have been met by Samuel Goldwyn, for she has now agreed to do one picture yearly for him for four years. om page 30 Gilda works only with people she likes. Robert Yignola, the director of "Cabaret," was a "darling." Tom Moore was "charming — a real gentleman." Jack Eagan, who plays the weakling brother, was "a nice kid." And Mona Palma was "awfully sweet." The script girl, too — Pat Donovan — was "sweet." It was her birthday, and Gilda had sent out for a corsage for her. The local Astoria florist had turned pale when Gilda's maid mentioned orchids ; the corsage of pink roses, slightly wilted, called down considerable wrath on the poor maid's head. Gilda hates to be thwarted even in little things. And she seldom is. With a husband who still effuses over her like a bridegroom, the prettiest car in the world — which she wanted and therefore received — a staggering boxoffice success, adulation, money, friends, herself the dictator of her professional life — this, then, is the ash-blonde mildly pretty Gilda Gray, who, not many years ago, as Maria Michalski, came over from Poland in the steerage, and still is a little surprised, as she rolls to work in her imported car, that she isn't in front with the chauffeur. Why I Was Married in a Wedding Veil Continued from page 19 There are many people who say that when you marry a man you don't marry his family, too. But I feel differently about that. I think you do marry his family, too." Miss La Plante has no intention of retiring from the screen as a result of her marriage. "Why should I ?" she asked. "Pictures add to my happiness, and they keep me in close association with Bill. And it is so well proven now that a woman can have both marriage and a career that I have no qualms whatever on that point. "Bill and I fortunately have the same ideas about a home. For instance, he prefers the English type of architecture, and so do I. Xeither of us could live in a Spanish house. The Spanish motif just doesn't go with our temperaments. So we are building an English home on our hillside lot, overlooking Los Angeles and Hollywood, and just at present are having a wonderful time selecting furniture and rugs and things." Before I left this wise young philosopher, I asked her if there was any special creed that she had adopted to insure her marital success, and she jumped at the suggestion with enthusiasm. "There is one cardinal rule that I shall always adhere to, and that is the right of each individual to privacy. Certainly if Bill enjoyed the hours that he had completely to himself before our marriage, he should be entitled to such hours after marriage, too. And I myself assuredly feel the need every now and then of a little freedom and privacy. Familiarity— too much of it — certainly breeds contempt, and kills people's interest in each other. "I've recently been reading 'Soundings,' and there's a quotation in that which thoroughly expresses my idea of life, and of marriage in particular. 'Life is an uncharted ocean. The cautious mariner must needs take many soundings ere he conduct his barque to port in safer}'.' " Knowing that Laura is a cautious and conservative young mariner, and charmingly wise*. I haven't the least fear that she or Bill will flounder on their sea of matrimonv. Secretly and Quickly Removed!
