Theatre was born and educated in Pittsburgh, Pa. and at seventeen joined a stock company there. He appeared in twelve plays and then joined the marines for six months of service, after which he rejoined the stock company. Wanting to do bigger things, he hit out for New York where, like many others, he literally starved until he got a break. Then followed engagements in New York and stock companies throughout the United States. Following a twenty-six week appearance in “The Front Page” in the Los Angeles stage, he decided to follow pictures exclusively. He has played in “Officer O’Brien,” “Framed,” “Young Desire,” “Dixiana,” “Check and Double Check,” “Hook, Line and Sinker,” and “Smart Money.” He was under contract to R.K.O., but sacrificed it when he thought he was being “typed.” \ \ iu apie yuug seuss we In Warner Bros. Drama, The picture is based on the sensational best-selling novel by Dora Macy who also wrote “Ex-Mistress.’ The human and dramatic phases of hospital life are portrayed as never before. Beside the unusual story “Night Nurse” has been given the superb direction of John Francis Dillon who did “The Public Enemy” and “Wings.” It should be stressed that while the sequences of “Night Nurse” are largely in a hospital, the gruesome is never in evidence—rather the humanness of the throngs that frequent it, from the surgeon in command to the humblest orderly. It is the night nurse herself, who steals the picture and holds the imagination and sympathy of the beholder from first to last. Lora Hart is her-name, and she has the great luck to be interpreted by Barbara Stanwyck, remembered for her recent performance in “IIlicit.’ Miss Stanwyck has beauty and talent but it is an indefinable quality which makes her dominate any scene—and her portrayal of Lora, torn between temptations, fears, loves, ambitions and loyalties —is unforgettable. ‘Love finds Lora after many a long day—in the person of a likms aie ae ranch urha eames to her for the treatment of a romes the role.

Theatre has a large and important cast featuring Ben Lyon, Joan Blondell, Clark Gable, Charles Winninger and many other favorites of the screen, and not last, if least, are two sevenyear-old girls who have already made their mark in pictures. They are Marcia Mae Jones and Betty Jane Graham. Marcia Mae Jones was born in Los Angeles on Aug. 1, 1924. She was one year old when she first entered pictures, playing the part of Dolores Costello as a child in “The Mannequin.” She has appeared in a number of Educational Comedies, also in “King of Jazz,” “Four Sons,” “Waiting At The Church,” “Night Work,” “Bride of the Regiment,” “Bishop Murder Case,” “Love, Live and Laugh” and “Night Nurse.” Betty Jane Graham was born in Los Angeles on July 17, 1923.
