IT is of Nature‘s little jokes that Louise Brooks was born

in Kansas, home of the cornflower, the censor

and the late Carrie Nation. Yes, Louise has acquired a new

hair-dress in Hollywood. It‘s called the High-brow Bob.

a Follies girl, had many scantily draped photos

of herself made as an aid to publicity. These have brought about

her suit against John de Mirjian, photographer.

their menus autographed, and he cheerfully complied

with their request. At many towns along the route, groups

of excited small boys were waiting to catch a glimpse

of their idol. Chaplin spoke to them, apparently enjoying the


      A friend of mine who has already disliked the Chaplin

of the screen was very favorably impressed by the

courteous way in which the comedian greeted the advances

of persons who were entire strangers to him. If he felt

that they were prying too much into his affairs, he gave no

evidence of it.“
