The Listening Post (Continued from page 77) have nothing to do. Roscoe Arbuckle learned this, and is taking the next boat for Berlin. He's going to make come- dies, backed by American capital, for foreign consumption. He has a good chance for success, too, for the- Ger- mans are still laughing uproariously over Fatty's old custard pie comedies. • Tom Moore To Tread Boards JL ,he silent drama is all very well in its way, but there's a fascination in the "legitimate" that calls its children back to the footlights, sooner or Liter. Tom Moore is taking his Irish smile and his choicest brogue to the Mason thea- tre in Los Angeles, in a play called Dust of Erin, according to Tom's Scan- dinavian manager, Terrence Duffy. Lucille Rickscn to Have Lead J-»ucille Ricksen is really and truly grown up she says. She has been assigned a leading role in support of Jack Pickford in his new mountaineer picture, as yet untitled. Lucille says she is 16, but privately we think she's nearer 14. Never mind, she'll reverse the ratio in a few more years. Mean- while she's a fine little actress. Sympathy Wasted e had been feeling very sorry for Margaret Leahy. You know, the little English girl who was brought over here by the Talmadges. She was highly touted, had all sorts of publicity, but somehow, when it came to acting, she just wasn't there. Buster Keaton en- gaged her for his leading lady in one picture. Then Margaret found other jobs not available, and quietly she crept' off back home. We felt mighty sorry for Margaret. But we needn't have been. A copy of a staid old British news- paper reached Hollywood from London. This was what it had to say about Mar- garet Leahy: "Although no one knew of it in ad- vance. Margaret Leahy was in London yesterday incognito. Her one day's slay at home on her way to Paris was supposed to be a secret. "But Margaret Leahy, in England, cannot keep her identity a secret. When at Euston station she left the train which brought her to London after her enthusiastic reception at Liverpool, 1000 people were waiting to see her. "Then Miss Leahy dropped into Giro's for lunch. No one in the club knew she was in the city. But as she passed down the floor to her table, luncheon parties rose and stood, out of courtesy to her, until she was seated. "For dinner, she stepped in at the Em- bassy club. Here, again, there had been no announcement. Not even a table was reserved for her. But the club staff recognized her at once and addressed her by name. In a few minutes glasses were lifted to her in silent toasts, whichever way she glanced." The paper said more. It told of how she had begged to be hidden away [at Murray's Club late that evening, for a bite of supper, and how again she was recognized and toasted and cheered. And it seems the King and Queen have ' commanded her presence at the pre- viewing of "her picture" at Bucking- ham palace. And wlien she gets ^to Paris, President Millerand is going -to receive her. After long and earnest thinking, we have come to the conclusion that our sympathy has been wasted. Hereafter when we have any sympathy left over after contemplating our own troubles, we're going to donate it to Will Hays. He needs it worse than Margaret does. $7500 A Week No Living Wage I
- -t IS a Christmas tree year in filmdom.
Actors who last year were down to their last limousine now turn up their noses at a contract that reads less than four figures. And sometimes even then Elmer Harris offered Dorothy Gish the lead in his new picture, at the miserly wage of $30,000 for four weeks labor. Dorothy wired back: "What other stars will be in cast? Who will direct picture? What is the story? Are you sure it won't take longer than four weeks to shoot? And anyway I don't care for the job." Or words to that effect. The Perfect Monologist L„ levy's is one of our most patronized cafes. It has metropolitan atmosphere ; it does not close at ten P. M. The other evening a party of extra people were dining at one of the round tables sacred (Continued on page' 90)
