Her great admiration for the skill and technique of her close friend, Ruth Chatterton. As everybody knows, Miss Chatterton was a Broadway star before she ever came to Hollywood. In the opinion of Lois, that phase of her career was responsible for the great success she has made in motion pictures. Lois herself came to Hollywood in the silent days as winner of a beauty contest. She worked for Universal, Paramount and Warner Bros., and soon became a national celebrity. But it was not until 1928 that she achieved one of her ambitions—an appearance on the stage. In Hollywood and Los Angeles, she was then seen back of the footlights in such plays as “The Gossipy Sex,” “The Swan,” “Spread Eagle” and “The Queen’s Husband.” For a time she even thought of continuing her career exclusively in the theatre. Then came another good role in pictures and she returned ta her first choice. But when she works with Miss Chatterton in such films as “The Crash” and “Female,” the old doubts assail her. She believes that no one could learn as much about acting by starting on the screen as did Miss Chatterton in her years on Broadway.
