"OF HUMAN BONDAGE" A COMPELLING DRAMA WITH LESLIE HOWARD
The strange love which holds a cultured student to a selfish, beautiful, unworthy waitress is etched in this powerful film version of the Somerset Maugham novel of the same name.
Leslie Howard is starred in the role of Philip Carey, and Bette Davis play Mildred, the waitress who holds his soul in human bondage.
Knowing that the girl, to whom has has given his heart and everything that is fine in him, is common, faithless and utterly unworthy. Carey is unable to give her up. Time and again, he takes her back when others have tired of her, and only death is able to break the spell of her powerful and mysterious hold.
Even the love of a woman of his own class fails to free him from the bondage which he knows is shattering his own self respect and dragging him to deeper unhappiness.
FRIDAY and SATURDAY, AUGUST 24-25

FIELDS WRITES OWN STORY
It was at one of the Hollywood openings that an old man stepped out of line and touched W. C. Fields on the are. "Don't you remember me, sir?", he asked. "Many, many years ago when you were traveling with a little stock company you saved my theatre for me. Is there anything I can do for you in return, Mr. Fields?"
For a long minute Fields looked at him.
"You have my friend," he said. "You have."
That night Fields wrote out the experiences the old man had recalled and sold it as his next picture.
CHANGES HIS PHONE NUMBER
Eddie Cantor had to change his Beverly Hills phone number 48 hours after the phone was installed. Seems that everyone confused it with the Sante Fe (sic) station, and Eddie got a little tired of getting up at 3 a.m. to tell someone about the next train to Reno.
Gloria Stuart has sold a home made two-reel picture for $10,000.
Rosamond Pinchot, niece of the Governor of Pennsylvanie, has been given a three-year contract.
Chester Morris was painfully injured during the making of his latest picture, when a fake plane in which he was suspended tipped and tossed him to the ground with studio lights falling on him.
John Boles once pitched on the University of Texas Baseball team and turned down two major league contracts.
Mary Brian recently christened the world's first sleeper plane.
Jeanette MacDonald is returning to Paris.
Jean Harlow is an honorary Deputy Sheriff in Tuscon, Arizona.
Mary Pickford is again considering appearing in a Broadway play.
Charles Farrell has gone to England to appear in a picture directed by Monty Banks.
That "B" in the middle of Cecil B DeMille's name stands for "Blount."
Victor Jory, who took up boxing as a pastime, became light heavyweight chapion of British Columbia.
GENEVIEVE'S OWN OPINION
Genevieve Tobin, Irene Castle McLaughlin's candidate for the title of "Hollywood's best dressed woman," arriving in new York from a vacation in Europe, was the first star to say a mouthful about the "Clean picture" agitation... said Genevieve: "I went to England because I'm sick of playing a vamp. I'm not a vamp off the screen, so I managed to have a good rest. If the churches can reform the movies, they're doing something that actors and actresses have been trying to do. No actress wants to play an indecent picture. You may be able to hold out twice against such a picture, but usually, owing to contracts, you find you're in a picture you don't want to play."
FOSTER PRODUCING A PICTURE
Norman Foster is another star who's making a film of his
own. Right now he's in Tahiti doing a flicker on perl diving based on a
story he wrote himself.
