SELL STANWYCK BIG! MEN APT TO BE WARY OF WOMEN WHO ARE TOO SOPHISTICATED, SAYS BARBARA STANWYCK, NIGHT NURSE Beautiful Star of Warner Bros. Thrilling Drama Of Modern Life, Now At Strand Theatre, Tells Why She Thinks So ( / (Feature That Will Interest All Women. Plant in No. 1 Paper for Sunday Use) Barbara Stanwyck who so brilliantly portrays the emotional role of Lora Hart, “Night Nurse’—now at the...... .. Lheatre ee and who is gratefully remembered for her recent por trayal of the heroine of “Illicit,’ tion, has decided opinions on * another Warner Bros. produc the sort of women that have appeal for the sterner sex. When interviewed by a Hollywood writer, she said in part: “There are rules for success in love,” just as there are rules for suc cess in business. The woman who succeeds in winning the attentions of a man follows the rules, though she may be unconscious of doing “Women are interested in observing their friends in love, out of love, and at the point also when they are trying to make some man fall in love with them. We become very shrewd in our knowledge. We observe mistakes in tactics. We are in a sense like generals studying on large topographical maps the triumphs and upsets of rival armies i iven campaign. : = egame Soren ss all their faith in clothes, hoping that a faultlessly groomed outfit, or the right allocation of color in clothes will make them irresistible to the wished-for swain. Others concentrate on cosmetics. Their philosophy makes them complexion-conscious: they count on their armory of lipstick, cold-cream, and eyebrow pencil to win their battles. Still others advance to the war-cry of ‘charm’ and give their victims concentrates of charm. It either kills or cures the patients.” Miss Stanwyck does not come to the detense or ally Ont ti tis ‘nie in the technique of courtship. She believes that it depends on the type of the woman in question, and on the type, too, of the man involved. COMBINE CHARMS “A woman who uses only one of these aids,” she declares, “is limiting herself. She should use all three judiciously. What good is charm without intelligence, or intelligence without charm? And a good turn-out of hat, dress and footwear makes a woman no more than a mannikin if she depends on her pocket-book and the right tailor to make her attractive. As for cosmetics, an overuse of them gives women the appearance of having lived too long in Turkish bathrooms.” This film star’s idea is that a woman should know herself perfectly and then find out what her sweetheart expects of his dream woman. Some women, she says, think they are irresistible if they wear exotic hairdress and slinky gowns. The sophisticated attire is all right in its place, but she cautions women that there are some men who are mortally afraid of girls who look too sophisticated. The movies have educated them into believing that such women are dangerous. “If you are essentially a sophisticated type, by all means use clothes in keeping, but if you are the girlish, baby, naive, or of the so-called ingenue type, please keep away from the slinky long dress and the bejewelled adornments,” pleads Bar bara. PAINTER ON BEAUTY “I was interested” she continues, “in the views of John Well, the English portrait painter, during his recent trip to New York in connection with the exhibition of his paintings. In regard to the need of individuality he made these pertinent remarks which I liked so well that I have preserved the clipping. “Women in America have the idea’ said the painter, ‘that beauty depends on having eyebrows of a certain shape, features of a certain cast and lipstick and rouge of a certain color. It is quite all right for a woman to try to make the best of herself. But why does she think that plucking her eyebrows because every one is doing it, or using pale orange rouge because it is popular, is to her advantage? Transforming herself into a uniform object will not make her a beautiful woman, but merely a standardized type. “Personally, if I were going to make the matrimonial leap, that would be the last type of woman I Page Four esslD era) Tonight She Tells ALL! under her very eyes TRANSGRESSIONS in the dead of night!

It is of course hard to say what I mean by real beauty. In fact, if I attempted it, no one would know what I meant. Beauty is an elastic term and often exists only in the eye of the beholder. Beauty to me is much more a question of mind and soul than perfect features. “Indeed, if you will analyze the features of a woman of great beauty you will find that each is in no way out of the ordinary. She has the same good points that dozens of other women possess. But there is an illusive, intangible quality about her which makes her very beautiful. Sometimes this beauty may burn steadily and brightly, and sometimes one may just barely get a glimpse of it...

During a speedy sequence in which Vera Lewis plays the stern superintendent of nurses—Miss Stanwyck and Miss Blondell, as nurses, are supposed to hurl a slipper at the dignified lady. “We'll cut the scene before the shoe is flung” said the director—but alas—when the day’s rushes were viewed a slipper was seen landing in the dead center of the startled map of the august directress. This is but one of the merry moments of a play which gives Miss Stanwyck her most emotional part. !

It therefore behooves every woman to cultivate herself in some degree. She need not be brilliant, but she should be able to discuss current events intelligently, and say something more than “I just adore it” whenever a topic comes up for discussion. According to this actress, there never has been a period in human history when women were so attractive, when clothes were so smart, when in fact the resources of the world were so much at the disposal of the woman who wants to make the most of herself. Miss Stanwyck’s own beauty secrets are simple. She believes in “ORPHEUM A Warner Bros. & Vitaphone Hit! (Advance Reader) Director William Wellman is one of Hollywood’s foremost directors, and Warner Bros. rely upon him to create some of the biggest productions of the year. One of these is “Night Nurse,” the latest Barbara Stanwyck picture which comes to was “The Public Enemy” which broke all records at the Strand Theatre in New York and is playing to spellbound audiences throughout the United States.

She never has less ; they will never become|than seven hours of slumber each day, and generally more. She uses good cold creams if her face is chapped. She uses soap and water night and morning, and for breakfast drinks hot water and lemon juice. She tries to remember to breathe deenly, takes morning exercises and goes in for swimming, riding and golf. And she invariably has the faint and baffling half-smile that makes those who see her think of Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.
