An Arkansas race track was en
gaged tor the photographing of the
horse racing scenes in '"Should a
Husband Forgive?" the big William
Fox special which will be seen on
Tuesday at the Star theater. Thus it
was possible to get the most exciting
racing scenes ever shown on the
screen and also to accomplish the un
usual objective of having Miriam
Cooper, who plays Ruth Fulton In the
picture, actually ride a horse in jock
ey's garb in a real race.
Miss Cooper Is an expert horsewo
man, but she was slightly nervous at
the prospect of riding in a bona fide
race until R. A. Walsh, the director,
"Co in and win, Miss Cooper," he
said. "You've got the best horse on
the track and if any jockey tries to
crowd you jusl mention the matter to
the horse and he'll move a little fast
er." Miss Cooper tried that very thing
with the result that she won the race
by a narrow margin in a blanket finish.
Wishing everyone a
very merry Christmas and a
happy New Year with
