\ oo Features =F Del Rio Romps In Glass Dress In A Glass House Cupid Jenkins Tries to Shatter It With Arrow in “I Live for Love” By CARLISLE JONES ‘“You must come over and see Dolores Del Rio in her glass dress.’”’ No further invitation was needed by this observer. The lovely Mexican encased in glass would stir him out of his lethargy any day. The scene, it developed, was one showing a fancy dress party for the Warner Bros. picture, ‘‘I Live for Love,’’ which comes to the.......... Dolores Del Rio, in a glass dress and inside a glass house, would be just too much, it seemed, for the public to bear up under, although it would still have met with this correspondent’s complete approval. The costume party got under way almost immediately. Miss Del Rio and her new leading man, Everett Marshall, the former grand opera and radio singer, were not yet in the scene but many other interesting people in costume were on hand for the first long shot of couples dancing. The cinematic host of the party proved to be our old friend, Guy Kibbee, made up, believe it or not, to look like an overgrown Napoleon, spit curl and all. Hobart Cavanaugh waltzed by, wearing spectacles, his Trojan Warrior armor rattling in syneopation with the music. Berton Churchill, dressed in a devil’s costume, appeared in ‘the doorway, rubbing his hands with simulated delight. The serene atmosphere of the scene was dissipated, however, when Allen Jenkins, dressed as cupid, in short skirts, wearing wings, and carrying a small bow began shooting blunt nosed arrows into the crowd on the dance floor. Director Berkeley stopped it all, temporarily, with a wave of his hand and ordered the camera moved to another position. Jenkins halted directly in front of us, fumbling for the handkerchief which couldn’t possibly be hidden in his scanty costume. A large lady, done up in ribbons, approached him out of the dispersing crowd on the floor, her hand on her hip. i She came directly up to Jenkins and stopped with her nose only inches away from his. “That hurt,”? she said meaningly. “See that it doesn’t happen again,” “Director’s orders,” explained Jenkins, the perspiration standing out on his long nose. “Pick another victim,” advised the lady, moving away. Meanwhile Director Berkeley had been very busy, pairing off couples for the new set up. Then he climbed up on a chair and gave his directions. A property man returned the arrows he had retrieved from the floor to Jenkins and hurried over to Churchill who was again having difficulties with his tail. After all, when one looks at a faney dress ball from the sidelines it becomes a highly ridiculous performance. What we had really come to see was Miss Del Rio in her glass dress, not Guy Kibbee playing Napoleon. And then, quite suddenly, Miss Del Rio was there. She was standing near the camera, chatting with the dialogue director, Gene Lewis. The glass dress was there, too, enclosing the dark beauty in a shimmering transparency from head to toe. It was evident at once, however, that Miss Del Rio was wearing what amounted to two dresses, one on top of the other. 2.

She started to collect the perfumes six years ago, and now has more than two hundred bottles of different brands in the boudoir of her Santa Monica home. They are arranged upon crystal shelves in front of a wall of mirrors, so that the reflections multiply them into an entrancing effect of prism colors and dancing lights. “Fair as a star when only one is shining in the sky” Wordsworth’s lines might have been written about beautiful Dolores Del Rio, pictured above, now appearing in “I Live For Love,” and coming | aaa Theatre. Everett Marshall, Warner Bros.’ new singing star is featured with her. Mat No. 202—20c The under dress was made up of some kind of clinging material which accentuated without actually revealing the actress’ perfect figure and the glass dress fitted over this. Orry-Kelly, the designer, whose idea the dress was in the first place, hovered near, studying his masterpiece. Miss Del Rio moved into place on the set, tinkling as she walked. “Let’s go,” yelled Berkeley, “while Miss Del Rio is still standing up.” Then he added in an undertone, “There’s no telling what will happen to a glass dress once she sit down in it.” So the costumed couples began dancing again. Guy Kibbee stirred himself into a semblance of activity. Berton Churchill reappeared looking like the devil and Allen Jenkins resumed his pot-shooting with hig _ rubbertipped arrows. Berkeley stopped the action again to speak to Napoleon Kibbee. ‘You look too genial,” he explained. “Too pleased. Remember you’re giving this party and it’s costing thousands of dollars. And you didn’t want to give it in the first place.” “Right,” said Kibbee. “I wanted to go fishing.” “It’s just a trap,” Bereley went on, “to get Miss Del Rio—” “Into a glass dress,” grinned Kibbee. “Yes,” said Bereley, then corrected himself. “No,” he said patiently, “to get her out of the idea of marrying and giving up her career.” “T like the glass dress idea better,” said Kibbee, subsiding limply on a chair. “Let’s go,” said Berkeley and the orchestra started once again. Knights in armor, ladies-inwaiting, harem girls, Daniel Boone, George Washington, Henry the Eighth, Lady Hamilton, Carrie Nation and thirty or forty other celebrities of days gone, danced past. Miss Del Rio and Everett Marshall joined the procession. Once Jenkins aimed his cupid’s arrow at the glass encased star, looking at Berkeley for approval. We waited to see the glass dress smash to pieces. But Bereley shook his head and pointed to a large lady. Reluctantly Jenkins let fly and the rubber arrow found its mark. There was a faint suggestion of a scream from her but she continued dancing, like a trouper, until Berkeley waved his hands to the orchestra, halting the scene. Then she made directly for the vicinity Jenkins had been occupying when he let fly the dart. But Jenkins wasn’t in sight. “I Live for Love” is a hilarious romantic comedy with an intriguing musical background of theatre and radio. Berkeley directed the picture from the story and screen play by Jerry Wald, Julius J. Epstein and Robert Andrews. Music and lyries are by Wrubel and Dixon. Singer Quits Opera to Gain Experience Everett Marshall, playing opposite Dolores Del Rio in the Warner Bros. comedy drama, “I Live for Love,” which comes to UG peeeers tee ener eet Theatre on Rrs S22) | See Ts Ban 2 , forsook an operatic career a few years ago that every other singer coveted. He was then singing in the Metropolitan Opera, but decided he needed more experience in acting. So he quit opera and made a tour in vaudeville. Later he played in George White’s “Scandals” and the Ziegfeld “Follies.” Then he became one of the leading radio singers. Having gained this experience, he was signed by Warner Bros. for the leading male role in “I Live for Love,” in which picture his golden voice will be heard in several beautiful songs. EVERETT MARSHALL An Impertinent Portrait Everett Marshall, Metropolitan opera star and radio’s greatest baritone, now appearing in the Warner Bros. picture “I Live for WWONC. Abr LUC yatta... pie Theatre, was born in Lawrence, Mass., December 31, 1901. The _ tall, good-looking singer is of old New England stock. His parents were poor. His father, Robert Marshall, was a loom fixer. There were two other children, Ralph and Merle. When Everett was still a child, the family moved to Worcester, Mass., and there he attended grammar school. Though the boy wanted to be a singer, it seemed that this ambition was not to be realized. At the age of 138, he went into the office of a civil engineer in the Massachusetts town. For five years, Everett worked in that office. In the late afternoons and evenings he would walk out into the country and express himself in the only way he knew—through song. His dislike of engineering grew. His ambition to become a great singer became a passion and finally, at the age of 18, he rebelled and went to Cincinnati to attend the Conservatory of Music there. And when in his final year at the Conservatory, he sang the part of Mercutio in “Romeo and Juliet,” it seemed that he was nearing his goal—the Metropolitan. But his voice wasn’t ready yet. There were still years of hard work ahead, before his voice would become rich enough and great enough for grand opera. Europe beckoned him. In the old world were the great voice teachers and he went to London to study, and then to Milan, Italy. Finally he was ready for opera and he sang in productions across the water. There scouts for the Metropolitan heard him and in 1927 he sang for Maestro Serafin. In October of 1927 he made his debut at the Metropolitan in “Girl of the Golden West.” One night George White went to the opera, heard Everett sing and saw him as a great musical comedy star. That was in 1931. White signed Everett for the “Scandals” and he was a success, so great a success that Radio Pictures brought him to Hollywood for “Dixiana.” But the public seemed disinterested in musical pictures then, so Everett returned to the stage and in 1932 appeared in White’s “Melody,” the Sigmund Romberg operetta. The next two years saw him in the “Follies” and in “Calling All Stars.” Meanwhile radio had come into its own. Everett obtained an audition and went into a famous program. Fans throughout the world were enthralled by his. golden voice and he went from one noted program to another. Now the public was demanding musical pictures again. Everett waited. Finally his chance came. Warner Bros. asked him if he wanted to play the lead in “Romance In a Glass House.” He did. Again he came to Hollywood, this time, he hopes, to stay. Marshall is just under six feet tall. He is slim and strong, weigh* ing 165 pounds. His hair and eyes are brown. He is unmarried. He is a good athlete, playing golf, handball and tennis well. He shoots 84 in golf. He is one of the best fencers in the country, loves to ride and watch water polo games. He doesn’t attend prize fights or wrestling matches. He likes good food but eats moderately. He believes that one should have a good place to live and good clothes. He has one pet economy—he carries his own golf bag. He is an excellent cook and his favorite dish is spaghetti. He likes crepes suzettes and is one of the few amateur chefs who can make them. He is also fond of pressed duck and veal cutlets. Everett has one pet, a canary named “Jolie Coeur.” He doesn’t like cats, child performers and doting mothers. He owns a Packard car and drives it himself. He likes indoor games and plays bridge, pinochle and ping pong. His only hobby is collecting new coins and many’s the time he has gone without lunch because the only coin he had in his pocket was a new fifty cent piece. Everett doesn’t think he is superstitious but he doesn’t like people to whistle in his dressing room. He has a little glass dog which he feels has brought him good luck. He likes motion pictures. His favorite actresses are Marion Davies, Helen Hayes and Kay Francis. His favorite actors are Warren William, William Powell and Hugh Herbert. His favorite operatic part is the “Conte Di Luna” in Il Trovatore. Everett plays the piano but no other musical instrument. He draws well. He likes to read and his favorite authors are Ernest Hemingway, Sinclair Lewis, Edith Wharton, Willa Cather and Sherwood Anderson. “T Live for Love” is a hilarious romantic comedy with an intriguing musical background of theatre and radio. Dolores Del Rio has the stellar role with Marshall playing opposite her. Others in the cast include Guy Kibbee, Allen Jenkins, Barton Churchill, Hobart Cavanaugh, Don Alvarado and Mary Treen. 5 Busby Berkeley directed the picture from the story and screen play by Jerry Wald, Julius J.
