While father and son debated, the war came, and Warren William went into the Army and to France. After the Armistice this young man from Minnesota so dreaded further combat of any kind that instead of coming directly home and haying it out with his father, he ed in France and joined up with satrical troupe which was tour_ the Army camps. Although young William had no stage experience he was the type for the leading role in “Under Cover.” Soldier audiences liked his acting, and when he came back to America he decided to see a few Broadway managers before going home. FAMOUS CRITIC PRAISES He got Richard Dix’s role in a road company of “I Love You,” and after that closed, a place in a stock company in Erie, Pa. Soon came a Broadway chance in Rachel Crothers’ “Expressing Willie” and Warren William’s personality began to register with Broadway managers and audiences. In one of his early appearances there—the play was “The Blue Peter” — Alexander Woollcott wrote, “He has a Barrymore accent in his speech and a Barrymore tone in his voice, and he looks the very image of the young John Drew who played Petruchio.” His father, coming upon this comment out in Aitkin, wired hic son that he had better give up engineering and the newspaper 1ess, and stay in the theatre ut the Drews and the Barrymores. Which Warren William did, whether or not the parental behest was meant to be sarcastic. He has been leading man in a series of Broadway plays, but is probably best remembered as the handsome hijacker of “Twelve Miles Out;” Francine Larrimore’s husband in “Let Us Be Gay;” and the hero of George Abbott’s “Those Who Love.” He was taken from the cast of “The Vinegar Tree” at the height of its success, by Warner Brothers who persuaded him to transfer his talents to talking pictures. “Expensive Women” is his first picture.
