(Review Featuring the Story) She recently told an interviewer who asked her how she manages to have the radiant complexion in spite of the use of makeup her way of caring for the skin. “Big Business Girl,” with beautiful Loretta Young in the title role, was enthusiastically received by the audience at ie see Theatre last evening. The story on which the picture is based, appeared first as a serial in a popular magazine and then as a best-selling novel, so that the characters were already well known. That they have permanent entertainment value is proved by their triple success.

Cleansing with creams or oils exclusively is probably necessary for the person with an extremely dry skin, but this condition also requires medical care, I am sure. “For the normal skin, a soap and water face bath, followed by an icy rinse, is a stimulating tonic. Once a day is sufficient for this treatment. Use a very mild soap with warm, not hot, water. Finish by dashing cold water on the face. A piece of ice in the water if it is not cold enough or a cold mask of the cloth, pressed to conform with the facial contour and held in that way for a few seconds is effective. “After the complexion bath, a gentle massage with a light, rich cream will prevent dryness and leave the skin soft and youthful. The best time to cleanse the face in this manner is just before re\tiring. “In the morning a cold water splashing will suffice. During the day, whenever it is necessary, clean the face with a thin cleansing cream—the kind that melts as it touches the skin, carrying the dirt away without strenuous rubbing.” Go After Things in Big Business Way Says Blondell (Current Story) Joan Blondell, who appears in support of Loretta Young, in “Big Business Girl,” the First National comedy drama of young love, now atte sek Theatre, says that success comes only to those who go after it with a high hand. “There’s no fun in doing things in a half-hearted way” says the blonde who is noted for her hardboiled characterizations, “If you must buy a house, buy a big one! If you must have an automobile, buy the best, no matter if it busts you to do it! If you want to drive fast, find a good clear open stretch of road, and step on it! Give the accelerator pedal the lowdown on the floor board! If you must sing and dance, warn the neighbors, hire a hall and go to it! If you want to do things, do ’em with a punch!” That is something the way in which Loretta Young, as the “Big Business Girl” goes after what she wants to accomplish—of course with more finesse—but with the will to win a place in the world of big business. Then that little thing called love, has to interfere, and so—but go to the tonight and see what happens. Rarest entertainment of the season. A noble marriage experiment!
