LORETTA YOUNG IS GRAND— Gowns And Gewgaws Do Cycles, Says Star Of “Big Business Girl’’ Loretta Young, Featured in First National Play at Theatre, Speaks Her Mind (Advance Story) The return to popularity of the home decorations of the gay ’90’s is due almost entirely to motion pictures, in the opinion of Loretta Young, star of First National’s “Big Business Girl,” a story of modern business, life and love, which comes to the Theatre next. “Just as women’s clothes travel in cycles of style, so do home decorations,” Miss Young declared. “At the present short skirts are very much out of style and the new clothes are returning in general contour to that of a generation ago. But surely women will never again wear so many clothes. “Dresden China figurines, which were very popular in home decorations about the time of the turn of the century, have come back with renewed force. No home is complete without them. And if they are genuine antiques they are Just so much more the thing. “The collection of china figurines used to dress the sets of ‘Big Business Girl’ aroused my envy, they were so interesting. And all of them had an intriguing history, having been purchased from the estates of California pioneers. I purchased several as soon as we finished with those sets.” William A. Seiter directed “Big Business Girl,’ with a supporting cast including Frank Albertson, Ricardo Cortez, Joan Blondell, Frank Darion, Dorothy Christy, Mickey Bennett, Nancy Dover,-Oscar Apfel and Virginia Sale. DIRECTOR OF “BIG BUSINESS GIRL” IS LIKE THIS (Current Story) William A. Seiter, who directed Loretta Young in her latest starring vehicle, “Big Business Girl,’ now ae the... 33 Theatre is one of the most interesting figures in the film capital. He has a number of records to his credit for various lines of achievement. Mr. Seiter holds the record for never having directed a picture that starred a male actor. He never worked on less than two productions at a time, and once he worked on four. Two were in various stages of completion in the cutting room, one he was actually directing on the sound stage, and another was being prepared for shooting on an adjoining set. Seiter claims that this does not tend to lessen the chances for a good picture to emerge from his energetic guidance. While he does believe that deliberate care and thoughtfulness aid the quality of a picture immensely, it is his theory that the planning should take place in the conference rooms before shooting commences instead of on the set, where a minute wasted means heavy expense. A vindication of his theory is shown in the fact that he was included in the industry’s first ten directors last year for “the artistic quality and general excellence of his pictures.” “To work on a Seiter set” is a phrase Hollywood uses to depict the ideal for the player. ‘Big Business GirlEnds Successful Run Today “Big Business Girl,” the First National romance of young love and business, starring Loretta Young, which has had such a successful run Btort ne Theatre, has its last two performances today.

Loretta Young, Star of “Big Business Girl,” First National Picture Now at Ba Theatre, Gives Her Reasons for Liking the Real Game (Short Feature) The recent popularity of the game called miniature golf and Tom Thumb: golf called forth Miss Young’s statement. She is only one of many golfers who insist that the new craze has little if anything to do with the game of golf. “Golf,” continues Miss Young, “is essentially an outdoor game. Its value for relaxation and health consists in getting the player out into the open air and making him take exercise. The exercise is only partly in hitting the ball; its most beneficial quality is the miles of walking it necessitates. On the miniature course the player—I won’t call him a golfer—gets so little walking that it is negligible. He gets none of the powerful swings with the clubs that exercise every muscle in the body. In comparison with real golf it is almost a parlor game. The player of ping-pong gets more exercise than does the player of Tom Thumb golf. “T do not say that miniature golf is not a fascinating game, for it has proved that it is with a large proportion of the public. My contention is that it should not be called golf. It is a social game for those who do not have an opportunity to get out on a real green and participate in the pleasure and benefits of one of the most absorbing outdoor games in the world. In that respect indoor golf has its advantages; it gives a mild, gentle form of exercise, frees the mind from the cares of business. It gives a certain amount of relaxation. “But to compare it with golf and call it by the same name arouses lively protest from those who know and play the noble game of golf. Real golf is prescribed by physicians for the sickly and ailing because it gets them out into the open air, trudging miles, affording the muscles of the entire body a stimulating but not too vigorous exercise. It is one of the most health-giving, health-restoring sports in the world. Miniature or Tom Thumb golf should find a name that has nothing in common with the word ‘golf’ and what it signifies.” “I do not say that miniature golf is not a fascinating game, for it has proved that it is with a large proportion of the public.

Loretta Young On Care Of The Hair (Woman’s Page) Loretta Young, now at the...... Theatre, as the star of “Big Business Girl,’ the First National comedy drama of young love and business tells how she cares for her hair, to keep the soft fluffy loveliness that is one of the charms of her screen presence. “Natural blonde or golden brown hair is so lovely that it is heartbreaking to watch it darken as a woman grows older. Resorting to a bleach is unsatisfactory, therefore it: is wise for the golden haired girl! to take measures to postpone the darkening process for many years.. “A camomile tea rinse each time the hair is shampooed is effective. This will bring out all the lovely lights in the hair and preserve the natural color. Prepare the tea. just before the shampoo so that it will be ready for the rinsing. “Use one teaspoonful of tea to a quart of hot water and let it brew just as you would ordinary tea. When the hair is thoroughly washed and rinsed, pour the camomile tea over it, as the final rinsing. “Of course, blondes must keep their hair and scalp scrupulously clean. In most cases, the weekly shampoo is a necessity. AFTER 5°" IT’S Her biggest contracts are signed be. tweena waltz .. anda foxtrot! ¢. A First National & Vitaphone Hit!
