SECRETSII THRILLSII! Hot from the diary of a night nurse who has seen everything! The part she plays in “Night Nurse” gives greater opportunity for the display of the many qualities which make her soe appealing to people of all ages. It is not alone her beauty and gentle femininity—there is some _ intangible quality which suffuses any role she undertakes, with implications of tenderness, tragedy, lightness and compassion that are quite irresistable. Lora Hart, is a perfect vehicle for Miss Stanwyck. Lora goes to a great city hospital to study to be a nurse—and during the years of her apprenticeship meets temptations, loves, fears and doubts that enthrall the imagination of the beholder from fade-in to final fade-out. Ben Lyon is his rough-and-ready best as the young hard guy who comes to her for treatment of a wounded arm and wins her heart. Other favorites of the screen, play notably the widely differing parts, Joan Blondell is Lora’s pal, also a nurse. Clark Gable is effective as Nick, a shady chauffeur who finally gets as good and as bad as he deserves. Charlotte Merriam, Edward Nugent, Allan Lane, Blanche Friderici, Vera Lewis, Rolfe Harolde, Walter McGrail and Betty May appear and two remarkable seven-year olds, Marcia Mae Jones and Betty Jane Graham—as well as ten babies of half a dozen nationalities.

This is not the order of a drug store proprietor, but a part of the requisition the Warner Bros. prop department received from William Wellman for one of the scenes in “Night Nurse,” the thrilling modern drama starring Barbara Stanwyck which comes to the........ Theatre Though the prop department spent days preparing an up-to-date ‘|drug store on the lot all that is '}seen in the picture is a meeting be tween Barbara Stanwyck and Ben Lyon at the soda fountain over an ice cream soda. It’s a short scene. -|}but if there happened to be one false detail the studio would be deluged with critical letters from drug store proprietors everywhere. The soda fountain had to be practical, as also the ice cream, soda and syrups, for not only do Barbara and Ben drink their ice cream sodas, but extras come into the scene and order everything from a small coke to a banana split. Real soda-jerkers had to be behind the counters. After all the scenes were shot they displayed their skill by using left-over in making up drinks for everyone in the company. Barbara Stanwyck is supported by Ben Lyon, Joan Blondell, Charles Winninger, Charlotte Merriam, Edward Nugent, Allan Lané, Blanche Friderici, Vera Lewis, Ralf Harolde, Clark Gable, Walter McGrail, Betty May and ten amazing babies.

Wellman, director of “Night Nurse,’ determined to have a flawless presentation of life in a hospital, secured the services of Dr. Martin of Los Angeles and two practicing nurses, Miss Olga Christoffeson and Miss Josephine Gellerman. The three were not to sit on the sidelines offering an occasional word of advice, but to be ready to jump in at any moment and do their bits as actors in the picture. One of the big scenes shows Barbara Stanwyck, as a probationary nurse, assisting Charles Winninger as operating surgeon. The room is complete to the last detail. Under a flood of light Winninger works on his patient, and Barbara is to prove her worthiness of a diploma, by helping. Details of the operation are of course spared the audience, the attention really centering on the workers. Mr. Wellman’s medical staff served bravely. Dr. Martin gave Mr. Winninger a lecture on surgery, so that every motion he made might seem natural. The good doctor then donned gown and mask and acted as assistant in the fake operation. Miss Christoffson and Miss Gellerman trained Barbara Stanwyck and Joan Blondell in the proper way to play nurse. The result is a picture which will bear the inspection of doctors anywhere. Miss Stanwyck is supported in “Night Nurse” by Ben Lyon, Joan Blondell, Charles Winninger, Charlotte Merriam, Edward Nugent, Allan Lane, Blanche Friderici, Vera Lewis, Ralf Harolde, Clark Gable, Walter McGrail, Betty May, Marcia Mae Jones and Betty Jane Graham.

Among her aversions are figs, dates, brunes, diets, early morning telephone calls, flashy clothes, galoshes, sweets, cooking and inactivity. Her likes far outweigh her dislikes. Here are some of her likes—and when she likes she likes with a vengeance—loves, would probably be a better word. She loves New York—football— dancing—her husband—a good novel— prize fights— a certain amount of solitude—spare-ribs and sauerkraut—tennis —dogs—horses—re-arranging the furniture of her Malibu Beach home— writing—swimming—kiddies—but better than all she loves to act.
