MARINES IN CHANEY'S NEXT, WILD WITH JOY
Tunney's Victory Cause for Outburst
Several hundred United States Marines, almost wild with joy, nearly wrecked the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer studios when the announcement arrived, via radio, of the victory of Gene Tunney over Jack Dempsey.
The feat of the ex-Marine was recieved by a big loud speaking unit installed by the studio for its employees. Most eager of these were the Marines appearing in George Hill's "Tell It To The Marines," starring Lon Chaney, a detachment from the San Diego base loaned by the government.
The spirit of the corps resulted in the soldiers of the sea wagering everthing they had including their pay for weeks in advance, on Tunney, one of their vetrans. According to Hill, if Dempsey had won, the Marines would have "lost their shirts."
For the arrest and conviction of Dan Mason, escaped convict, according to the story "The Understand Heart" by Peter B. Kyne in which Rockliffe Fellowes, pictured above, plays the role of the villain.

VAUDEVILLE VARIETIES on the Loew Circuit
PISANO & LANDAUER
"WATCH YOUR STEP"
On the Loew Circuit, Hap hazards, presenting his comedy novelty act, "Watch Your step," uses twenty feet of cable, which was taken from the ill fated dirigible, The Shenandoah. The cable was given Hap Hazards, whose real name is Hal Hart, at Lakehurst. He was a naval flier during the war, and a fall of 1000 feet at Brest put him in the hospital 7 months, on the reserve list and back into vaudeville!
Yvonne, the versatile little dancer, violinist and aerialist, playing the Loew theaters, was formerly a member of the Ruth St. Denis and Theodore Kosloff ballets. Later, she ran a dancing studio in San Francisco, but business held no charms. She picked up aerial proficiency in a gymnasium and she had always played the violin. So, she combined these accomplishments with her dancing and essayed vaudeville. And there you are.
Helen Lewis, who hads her Dixieland Girls in the Loew theaters, make some claims. She says hers is the only girl band with a drumming prima donna -- herself; the only band carrying its own arranger and coach -- a man; the only girl band boasting a composer directing her own number -- herself, and the only girl band with every member a college or conservatory graduate. These are some "only's" we'll hae to admit.
TIM McCOY, NEW WESTERN STAR, COMING IN "WAR PAINT"
LOEW'S GREELEY, OCTOBER 18-19-20
Acting in Films Give McCoy Genuine Thrills
Star Shot Twice, Kicked by Horse, Received Cuts and "Burn."
THOUGHT ACTING TAME
Now Finds Life on His Ranch in Wyoming Among Indians Tame in Comparison
The thrills of ranching in the Indian country of Wyoming are tame compared with the thrills of picture making. This is the conclusion of Tim McCoy, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's new western star of "War Paint" coming here next week. During the making of his initial starring picture, McCoy was shot twice, cut three times with a hunting knife, kicked in the back by a horse and had the flesh "burned" from his left hand when hangin on to a lariat by which a runaway horse was dragging him.
Fortunately none of his injuries were serious. "I thought I had led something of a thrilling life," says McCoy, who was the youngest colonel in the United States Army and who is still a brigadier general of Wyoming State Milita. "I lived among the Indians for years, served in the regular army, and ranched throughout the West, but I never had anything happen as thrilling as I have encountered during the few months I have been in pictures."
McCoy, said to be the greatest living authority on the North American Indian, has lived with them for years, and "speaks" their universal sign language, and it was through his influence with the Indians on the Wind River reservation that several hundred Arapahos and Shoshones were obtained to appear in "War Paint."
"YOU'D BE SURPRISED" AT RAY'S ARRAY OF PLAYERS
"You'd Be Surprised" at the case Raymond Griffith has assembled for his latest picture, the title of which is quoted above.
"You'd Be Surprised," coming here part of next week, has Raymond Griffith as its star. But for his leading lady has has none other than Dorothy Sebastian, the brunette beauty who swept the picture-going public off its feet in "Sackcloth and Scarlet."
And then there's Earle Williams, who needs no introduction. He has an important role, as has Edward Martindel, another favorite.
Griffith is one actor who believes in the best. He believes that good players deserve their chance, and are appreciated by the public, regardless of who the star may be.
Incidentally, "You'd Be Surprised," Griffith's funniest picture, is also a thriller of no small magnitude. In fact, so baffling is the plot that Griffith has made a special request of audiences who see it not to tell the ending to their friends.
High hat comedian coming next week in "YOU'D BE SURPRISED."
