"Mr. Graham, don't you think it's

"Ma, come watch me act."

10
"Can't you do something new?
I've seen that a hundred times."

11
"Ah! My sheik!"

12
"Yes, my sheikess!"

13
"Catch me. I'm going to faint!"

14
"So that's puppy love!"

15
"Pa, we were practicing
         acting."

16
"It didn't look like
 practicing to me."

17
"- - and in the future, if
 you're seen hanging around
 Sue, you'll have to answer 
     to Mr. Applejohn."

18
"I've decided that Sue is to marry
  Aaron --- Someday she will
       thank me for it."

      Next Morning.
         _____
Belle Brown, a grass widow 
 in the field again with
     an eye on David.

21
"I was teaching her to drive
 - I skidded - she fainted."

22
"I did not!"

23
"I don't care if you both 
         fainted."

24
"She didn't say much but
 just look at her walk!"

25
"These snapshots of Sue
 are foolish; what makes
 you think she can act?"

26
"Why, her grandfather on
 my side was a great 
       acrobat."

27
"Well, your father has O-K'd
 our marriage - now it's
       up to you."

28
"Don't cry; we'll live here
      with the folks."

29
"It's the onions."

30
Secretly hoping to get away 
      from it all.

31
"I'm going away."

32
"Sue, don't you 
    love me?"

33
"Do you love me?"

34
"I never knew until now
 how much I love you."

35
"Let's run away and 
    get married."

36
"When?"

37
"Tonight!"

38
"I was going to mail
 it but it doesn't 
    matter now."

39
"Yes, I'm going away 
     with David."

40
"Have you said goodbye
   to your Mother?"

41
"Mary! Mary!!"

42
"David, I can't leave
        them!"

43
David takes his troubles
 to the ever-sympathetic
        widow.

44
"Sue wants to go into
 pictures. Do you think
  she has a chance?"

45
"The least you can do
 is mail it; let me put
    a stamp on it."

46
Hoping to get Sue out
     of the way.

47
Time passed. All hope gone.
     Her wedding day.

48
"She'll be ready any
 minute - the Widow
 Brown is helping her
       dress."

49
"The bridegroom has my 
       sympathy."

50
"Why aren't you dressed?"

51
"What's the hurry? I'll be
   a long time married."

52
"A telegram from 
   Hollywood."

53
Sue knew that Mother
 would understand.

54
"It's hard for a mother to
  lose her only daughter."

55
"There goes the bride!"

56
"I'll follow you as 
   soon as I can."

The studio manager.

59
"I've been double
    crossed!"

60
"Under the conditions,
 all I can do is send 
      you home."

61
"You mean you won't
    let me act?"

62
"I've come two thousand
 miles to run a sewing 
       machine."

63
Her new job.

64
"Give me a hat."

65
"Excuse me while I get
 'Spark Plug' a derby."

66
"Help yourself."

67
"It's a good thing you're
        the boss!"

68
Christmas Day in
   River Bend.

69
Dave arrives at 
  the studio.

70
Returning from location.

71
"Check your wardrobe
 in the costume room."

72
"That serial hero is afraid
 to work with the lion so
 I've got to fix up Teddy."

73
"Wait! You've got something
       to explain."

74
"Madame McCarthy, my friend
      Mr. Giddings!"

75
"Young man, get off
      the lot!"

76
"I'll be out at five."

77
"You're working tonight!"

Where Sue lives.

Mr. T. Phillip Hackett.

	... Ramsey Wallace

80
"Miss Graham, I'll do any-
 thing I can to help your 
         father."

81
"That's very kind of you."

82
"- - and if you can't get 
 away from your work, I'll 
     meet the train."

83
"You certainly are 
   a gentleman."

84
"Shooting" an old fashioned
    garden scene on an
      interior stage.

85
Mr. William Desmond.

86
"This is the little girl of
 whom you promised to
     make a test."

87
"Can you play that scene 
     I just made?"

88
To be near Sue, Dave
took a job as stage-hand.

89
"Enter, Miss Graham."

90
"Try it over again."

91
"You're sitting on
     my glove."

92
After removing her 
     make-up.

93
"I've had my test and the
 director said I was just
    naturally funny."

94
"I saw it."

95
"Give up this foolish idea
 of a career and let's get 
         married."

96
This being Sue's busy
 day, Mr. Hackett met
      her folks.

97
"I suppose you are 
    a star now."

98
"Mr. Graham, it takes a
 long time to become 
       a star."

99
"That's a great investment
 - put me down for fifty
 thousand - send Parker
     for my check."

100
"Mr. Hackett, could father 
     get in on that?"

101
"Pop, the whole country 
    is mad over oil."

102
"That's one business 
     I do know."

103
"Pop, you must hit while 
     the iron's hot."

104
"I expect to double my money."

105
"Mr. Hackett, is there 
  a chance of losing?"

106
"Not a chance."

107
"You look terrible!"

108
"I hope I'm wrong, but
 I think that man is a 
        crook."

109
"What do you know about
       business?"

110
Photographing a thrilling es-
   cape from lions in the 
      heart of Africa.

111
"Bring me a jumping lion 
   or I'll use Teddy."

112
"You yell so loud you 
      scare him!"

113
"Teddy, I'll get you 
      a drink."

114
"Lunch!"

115
"Come on, Teddy."

116
"That lion won't jump and
  today I want a thrill."

117
"That's some pussy cat!"

118
"You are discharged!"

119
"I don't care, my dad will soon
   be rich --- I'll have my 
         own studio."

120
Planning their new 
     bungalow.

121
"Folks, I have awful news
 for you - our oil company
 went to the wall this
        morning."

122
"But I get my money back,
        don't I?"

123
"Not a cent."

124
"Mr. Hackett, that was
 every cent I had in 
     the world."

125
"I saved a thousand out of the
 wreck. Here's five hundred
  that will get you home."

126
"You said they couldn't lose."

127
"That's true, but we all 
     make mistakes."

128
"You go on with your movin'
 pictures - mother and I
     are going home."

129
"How is the little business
           lady?"

130
"Listen, Dave - do you
       love me?"

131
"Of course I do --- What's
       the matter?"

132
"Dad has lost every cent ---
   and it's all my fault!"

133
"I knew that fellow was 
        a crook."

134
"I came for my father's 
        money."

135
"The money is here 
     somewhere."

136
"The money is in the cushion
 that was thrown through
       the window."

137
"It's gone!"

138
Four years later - looking
        backward.

139
"Daddy, who is that man 
    kissing mamma?"

140
"Dearest, to hear him call me
 Mamma means more than the 
  greatest career I might
      ever have had."
