Loew's New Rochelle, New York - October 25th, 1926
NORMA'S NEXT "AFTER ALL"
Norma Shearer, whose screen roles have ranged from stenographers to vaudeville performers and women attorneys, will be seen as an impish, mischievous Parisian Mademoiselle in a new starring picture, "After All," written especially for her by F. Hugh Herbert and Florence Ryerson of the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer scenario department. Miss Shearer has just completed her part in "Upstage," a stoary of a travelling vaudemville troupe directed by Monta Bell. Note: The final title of this film was The Demi-Bride (1927)
OF ENGLISH NOBILITY
Lady Peel of London society, better known as Beatrice Lille, famous music hall star, makes her debut in "Exit Smiling" for M-G-M.
"VALENCIA" ON THE SCREEN
Mae Murray, starring in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's elaborate new photo play "Valencia," and Lloyd Hughes who plays the male lead in the film, examine a literary curio of old Spain shown them by Dimitri Buchowetski, who directs the two in this new picture. "Valencia" is an original story for the screen by Alice D.G. Miller.
"THE DAY OF SOULS" TITLE OF GILBERT'S NEXT PICTURE
"The Day of Souls" is the definite title of John Gilbert's new starring film for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, temporarily titled "Cock O' the Walk." Stuart Holmes, one of the premier villains of the screen, has been engaged for a prominent role in this film -- that of the eccentric and sinister owner of a side-show in the Budapest underworld Production of "The Day of Souls," with John Gilbert in the leading role, supported by Renee Adoree, will start early next week under Tod Browning's direction. Note: The final title of the film was The Show (1927)
EDMUND GOULDING ORIGINAL FOR MAE MURRAY
Edmund Goulding, the author of many of Mae Murray's most popular screen successes, is to be her director in her next Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer starring vehicle. The new story, an original by Goulding, dealing with the life of a Park Avenue "pet" will be called "Diamond Handcuffs," and will go into production as soon as Miss Murray completes her work in "Valencia." Goulding was the author of "Peacock Alley," "Broadway Rose," "Jazzmania," and other Mae Murray triumphs. Note: The film ended up starring Eleanor Boardman, and being directed by John McCarthy.
I have had to learn to skate for a winter scene on a Dutch canal in
my newest picture, "The Red Mill." The
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer people froze over a ten-acre canal by artificial
means, and we had great fun skating on it at one time. It was
most amusing to see some of them undertake the sport with their
runners fastened to wooden shoes.
VALENTINO GREATEST LOVER THAT SCREENDOM EVER KNEW, COMING
Mary Astor, feminine lead in "The Rough Riders," still can remember the time she went hungry waiting for screen success to come.
There is only one "double" in Paramount's latest war comedy, "We're in the Navy Now," featuring Wallace Beery and Raymond Hatton. The Pacific Ocean is "doubling" for the Atlantic.
The importation of screen players, which is putting a strain on the linguistic abilities of many American movie directors, does not disturb Herbert Brenon. The latter recently directed Lya de Putti, the sensational Hungarian actress, and Adrienne d'Ambricourt, formerly of the Comedie Francaise, in a scene from his latest picture, "God Gave Me Twenty Cents," giving instructions to the one in German and the other in French. He also speaks Italian.

RAYMOND GRIFFITH IN "YOU'D BE SURPRISED"
LAUGHS 'N GASPS GALORE IN GAY GRIFFITH FARCE
If you want to laugh one minute and gasp the next -- see Raymond Griffith in "You'd Be Surprised," which comes here next week. It is undoubtedly Griffith's best picture since his "Paths to Paradise." As a "Sherlock Holmes" Ray goes through mental gymnastics in the untangling of a murder mystery which would do credit to any sleuth.
It's hard to say which the picture contains more of -- laughs or thrills. Griffith, a coroner, tries to discover who killed the district attorney. Instead of solving the mystery he finds himself in the center of a dozenothers, and also discovers that he has fallen in love with a girl whom everyone suspects as the criminal.
The picture's ending will have to remain a mystery because Mr. Griffith hsa asked those who see the picture to refrain from telling their friends the real murderer's identity.
Dorothy Sebastian, playing opposite Ray, makes a lovely foil for his emotions. Earle Williams enacts the deputy district attorney, and Edward Martindel, the attorney. Arthur Rosson, the director of "Wet Paint," was again at the helm.
Some of the deaf mute scenes in "You'd Be Surprised" are among the funniest ever filmed.
GILDA GRAY MAKES HER MOVIE BOW IN "ALOMA"
Thrilling Romance of the South Seas Here Oct. 27-28
"Aloma of the South Seas," Gilda Gray's first starring production, which comes to Loew's New Rochelle Theatre, Oct. 27-28, is a warm, colorful love-drama of the tropics. Packed with wild dancing, strong dramatic punches, beautiful tropical scenery and great acting by a fine cast, which includes Percy marmount, Warner Baxter, Julanne Johnston and William Powell, it promises to e the film sensation of the year.
If we are to believe advance reports, Gilda, as the beautiful native dancing girl, is as good on the screen as on the stage. She, "Aloma," is loved by the pearl-diver, "Nuitane." "Bob Holden," a dissolute young man, comes to the South Seas to forget his having been jilted by "Sylvia," his society sweetheart. "Bob" starts on the downward path, until "Aloma," who is very much attracted to him, shows him the right way to go. Then -- "Sylvia" appears on the scene -- and the dramatic struggle between the two women for the man they love is a thing of dramatic emotion.
