Behind the Screen
, HOLLYWOOD, Feb. 28. Now
get this straight! . , ' r ;
. .They're goins; to tane those
wild bad men In the movies!
Realism on, the silver sheet has
struck a new ".note. It's an 'im
portant, one- because it reHecU the
trend of the forthcoming motion
pictures-and their" cltfe character
isations. The" ; . principle ' was
sounded at the paramount studio.
" Raoul "Walsh, who - Is directing
Howard,., who is megaphoning
2an ' Grey's "The Thundering
Herd," "into ' pictars- fdmp were
disenssing Noah Berry's ; charae
terizatioiis fn th0"3e "movfes with
the good-bad man of the screen.
Noah had expounded ' his - theory
that no man In real life can be all
bad; hence no man on the screen
should . appear ; to be -so. . :
"Bat ' there are thieves, cattle
rustlers and even men who mur
der their bwn mothers in real
life, objected Director Howard.
"There's a spark of good a dt
Tine spark in every ne of them
somewhere," "countered Noah.
-Bring It out. Show that oh the
screen, - too. s Make those charac
ters human. Let 'em .? LIVE. 4hey all belong-12,000 hto-
S&ow them bad, sure, but let theeaits per week, each Saturday.
tug., i Why? Berause - somewhere
in hi natare there is good. -
; "I believe that when a man Is
totally bad there's only :one-reason.
He "is ; insane. 'Insanity Is
the only Circumstance of life that
can utterly submerge that ditlne
parfc which; Is every man's.
I ''And .so" In ; portraying heavy
roles on the. screen, I try. to in
still sdmethrng" lovahle-dme-thing
human into every charac
ter. If I can't do this, I play
him i as ;a craxy man.? Only in
sanity ca i excuse complete evil.
Iean play a Crazy man hut I can't
play; an- all had .'bad . man.' There
is no such thing."
Well,: Noah's conversation made
them do some heavy thinking In
the Paramount offices. After a
considerable discussion they de
cided that he was right. :

We - think of our first pair of
higi-top boots with copper toes.
How proudly we strutted and how
mighty And independent we were.
We recall the digging of worm!
and the days spent down at tho
brook fishing and how jauntily w;
stepped as we returned home with
a nice string of fish for Mother.
We recall the days spent in th
fields picking potato hugs ami
weeding and hoeing.
We are -again fn the village
acheot playing pranks en -the
teacher and, too, keeping up ist
our lessons that we might carry
to ear parents the little card tell
ing et how well their boy was do
ing in his classes.
"We see the old home and its
ties are still wrapped round our
heart. ' - "
We again live the day on whieS
we said "Good-bye. -Mother dear,"
as we started oat for the first time
to face the world and win fame
and fortune. . .
We still see the falling tears
and hear the sweet and tender
"God bless you, my boy," and feel
the clinging arms of mother as she
haltingly parted with us. with a
gentle smile and trembling lips.
We are back again in the, old
home village and ia its simple lit
tle : graveyard. We see two plain
monuments that stand above the
graves where , rest . mother and
father until the Master calls them
to Tisexand go with Htm to the

And we wonder If we have lived
well, and if the eyes of father aad
mother gaze approvingly upon our
