your Ist story New Chatterton Film, “Female, ’ Shows Star in Exceptional Role (Routine Story) Ruth Chatterton will play a new and unusual role in her latest screen vehicle, “Female,” which arrives at the .... Theatre on.... This glamorous star has had a long, unique and varied list of roles in her stage and screen career—ranging all the way from the touching, tearful “Madame X” to the _ ultra-sophisticated and indolent heroine of “The Rich Are Always With Us,” and from the picturesque but hard-boiled “Frisco Jenny” to the helpless rich woman of “The Crash.” But never before has she appeared in the guise in which “Female” will present her: an efficient big business executive at the office and a woman who has her own love code at night. Alison Drake, the heroine played by Miss Chatterton, knows her own power as head of the vast motor company she has inherited and goyerns. She is convinced that in her position of command she can treat men exactly “as men have always treated women.” She wishes to use them when it pleases her, both for business and for her own pleasure. In all this she is ruthless. It is only when she finally meets her match —a man who will not submit to her conditions—that she realizes how much she honestly wants to be “like other women.” Her powerful position has been glorious—but lonely. There can be no compromise so long as she herself refuses to submit to the inevitable. Miss Chatterton was selected as the perfect star to portray this young woman of strange conflicts and self-questionings. Alison’s poise and wit and self-confidence, in the early portion of the story, are well suited to the actress. It is a role peculiarly well adapted to a star who combines Miss Chatterton’s gifts both as comedienne and dramatic actress. The heroine of “Female” demands both elements. It is one of the most diverse roles which Miss Chatterton has played—hence, according to the star herself, one of the most satisfying. William Dieterle, directer of the picture, has spun this daring story with great charm and delicacy. Its comedy is thrown into relief by emotional scenes of depth and tensity. A distinguished cast appears with Miss Chatterton in “Female.” With George Brent as leading man, and such players as Ruth Donnelly, Lois Wilson, Ferdinand Gottschalk and Johnny Mack Brown in important roles, the star has splendid support.

Miss Chatterton has the role of a big business woman, placed by birth in a commanding industrial position, able, aggressive,magnetic and selfconfident, yet predominantly feminine and with an inherant desire for conquests in the field of love as well as in business. As the president of a vast motor plant authentic backgrounds were called for in many sequences. Workshops, assembling departments, engineering offices—all these figured in the script. Executive offices were constructed on the sound stage but other sequences must necessarily be photographed on the ground. The officials of a huge motor plant (Chrysler Motors) offered the use of their gigantic plant in Los Angeles for as many shots as might be needed. Miss Chatterton and other members of the cast spent several days at work in various sections of the plant. The scenes consequently are realistic and accurate, for they were taken in a place where automobiles were. actually in the course of production. The love sequences take place either at her own home or out of doors, for Miss Chatterton in her character role never mixes business with love, as the handsome young men in her employ whom she has entertained the night before, learn to their chagrin.

Miss Chatterton’s first picture after joining Warner Bros.-First National was “The Rich Are Always With Us.” They were trying to find a leading man and many tests were made of Hollywood players. But after seeing one of George Brent both Miss Chatterton and the studio executives decided that the young Broadway actor was the man. Later when she played in “The Crash” he was again leading man. When it came to “Frisco Jenny,” however, there was no part that was suited to Brent’s type of work, so he did not appear with her.
