Portrayer Of UltraModern Roles Says Flappers Passe Shed a tear for the rip-roaring, fask-toting, flapper who was the heroine of yesterday’s screen epics of flaming youth. “No less an auhority than Alice White, who scored her first successes in such roles, says that the flapper is definitely a thing of the past. “The publie is thoroughly tired of ‘he rowdy characters they saw in the so-called sensational films of a few years ago,” the First National star says. | “The majority of pictures will al-— ways continue to deal with youth but they will faithfully mirror the. youth of the period. The nervous, jazzy, sensational films presented a fairly faithful picture of a certain class of post-war youth but that type is no longer extant. “Youth has assumed an easy sophis| tication which makes gin parties and similar things merely incidental. There is now a restlessness and earnest quest for something I’m _ not what — that has changed the whole order of things. “T think picture, “Naughty Flirt,” is a good gauge of certain exactly my new the new trend. I play a girl who has indulged in all the fashionable vices and tried just about everything in her search for an interesting exist ence.

Comic policemen are Kelsey’s specialty.

Since then ie has been a bonehead cop in more han ten talking features, notable imong which is “The Road to Paralise” with Loretta Young. “Being typed has its advantages,” Xelsey has found. “Onee an actor nakes a hit as a type he is almost lefinitely ‘set’? for at least two or ‘hree years as far as pictures are ‘oneerned. Playing the same type -ontinuously in pictures is almost ike working on the stage, the character enlarges itself with every performance.” Alice White is starred in “Naughty Flirt,” which is from an original sereen story by Earl Baldwin.
