Why don’t you marry me? ... Id make a swell husband even if I am a reporter. Men are to me what goiters are to science ...a pain in the neck! Are you taking advantage of the new PERSONAL’ INTERVIEW SERVICE on Warner Bros. Stars and Players? Through a new Warner Bros.’ service it is now possible for you to establish an exclusive personal contact between your paper and every one of the Warner Bros.' stars and featured players. Here's how it works: q Your paper's movie editor prepares a list of questions for an interview just as he would if the star were in town. The questionaire should then be mailed directly to: EDWARD SELZER, Publicity Director, Warner Bros.’ Studios, Burbank, California Editor should mention date he plans to break interview and the star will supply information in time to meet the deadline.” In order to realize the full benefits from this stunt it is suggested that you plan the story to break for the opening of the star's picture or during its run. * This contingent upon star's presence at the studio. If away on location or "between pictures", editors will be notified to that effect at once and advised date of return. Bette Davis Bette Davis was born in Boston, Mass., and attended Cushing Academy.

A quarrel ensues between Ellen and Devlin; also both he and she are “in the dog-house” with their respective editors. Ellen, piqued by Devlin’s scorn of her work, resolves to prove she’s a real reporter. She admits that she loves him, but she declares she'll never marry him till she’s made him admit that she’s a capable news-hound. She gets stock of the papers and is fired from her job. Devlin, in contempt of court, but lauded by his editor, is jailed —but with his editor’s promise of immediate freedom and a raise. Ellen makes the final score when she gets a confession out of Inez that she killed Stone and that Coulter is really innocent. The happy ending is pre-flashed as Ellen allows Devlin, still in cated in the University there. His first stage experience was with stock companies of which he has, at one time or another, owned six. His first screen role was with Ruth Chatterton in “The Rich Are Always With Us.” Other pictures in which he has had prominent’ roles include “Stranded,” “The Goose and the Gander,” and “Living on Velvet.” her chance to match wits against jail to fasten a slave bracelet es DURE CLOT Ae Se Michael Curtiz him in a murder which baffles the around her ankle—symbol of their fe : police. engagement.
