What he went to study was
dramatics. While seeking to en

like to be. And I’d like to study
here. I can afford to spend the
money even if it turns out to be
only a perpetual hobby with me.”
It appears to have been money
well spent judging from his suc

such films as “When the Dal

he played Judge Bogardus—and
in “Penny Serenade,” with Irene
Dunne, in which he portr^ed
