Miss Loy was educated at the Westlake School for Girls in Los Angeles, and studied dancing with Ruth St. Denis.

Of course Alice wins since:she’s the star of the piece but the experiment was interesting because both Alice and Myrna are supposed to be the very epitome of what the gentry used to refer to as sex appeal. exotic, willowy temptress—in the films, of course. In real life the situation is reversed. Alice White frankly admits that she believes women might just as well be the aggressors in love affairs. She says that if she found a man she particularly liked she would have no scruples about letting him know she’s alive. For that reason she was in sympathy with Kay Elliott, the character she portrays in “Naughty Flirt.” Kay found a man she loved and immediately set out to steer him to the altar. There’s nothing exotic about the real Myrna Loy. She is studious, reserved, and almost shy. She spends her §spare-~ time studying lancing, music, and sculpture, and one could by no stretch of the imagination conceive of her bearing the slightest resemblance to her screen character. Myrna says she never ceases to marvel that people should expect her to be a voleanie personality. Although she aduvity it’s -bromidic, she insists that most »f the voleanie women she has either known or heard of were odd. little creatures with sandy hair and funny noses. She thinks girls of thie Alice White type are, in real life, the ones that get she men and ermine coats. Alice White made her picture debut in “The Sea Tiger” as’ a tropical vamp, while Myrna Loy was both exotic and dangerous in “What Price Beauty,” ‘her initial film. Alice has since reformed cinemati | cally while Myrna seems doomed to go right on being: openly dangerous.
