ARDENT FOOTBALL FAN, destined to become President of the United States, Woodrow Wilson seldom

MANY a splendid cadenza and
many a stately wiggle have
been contributed to the role of Car
men by the ladies of the opera
since 1874. Everlovin’ Jose has been
mocked by Mme. Galli-Marie, Geral
dine Farrar, Emma Calve, Mary
Garden, Maria Jeritza and Gladys
Swarthout. These Carmens brought
a widely recognized artistry to the
part, which was needed in the earli
est performances when music lovers
and moralists made it hot for Bizet
and his Spanish-gypsy baggage. But,
though beautiful, none of them re
sembled the real charmer that Pros
per Merimee described over ninety
years ago. Dark-eyed, she was, and
copper skinned, with lustrous black
hair and "teeth whiter than peeled
almonds.” Like Muriel Smith.
Muriel is the Billy Rose Carmen.
She operates out of Carolina in-,
stead of old Seville. She sings in
the English idiom, instead of the
operatic French. But she wig-wags
like her Spanish ancestor, and her
lovemaking brings out the same old
The critics warmed to Muriel’s
Carmen. “Sultry,” they called her,
with a “dangerous” smile and a
voice as “flery” as the Bizet score.
They’d need another set of adjec
tives to describe the real Muriel. A
sweet and lovely girl of twenty-two,
her success is the flowering of her
mother’s love, ambition and fore
sight. Mrs. Smith has always wanted
Muriel to be a singer and an ac

ings she gave her gifted daughter
the best training she could afford,

Muriel has grown up with the
average girl’s hobbies, collecting,
photography and sewing. She col
lects and writes letters to her
Friends in service. Photography is
the lucky hobby. It got her a job
in a camera shop once, when she
was helping to pay for her musical
training. Sewing is the hobby her
mother thinks every girl should
have. “No matter what career a girl
chooses,” Mrs. Smith says, “she
must have some practical talents,
and considering how girls love
clothes, nothing is more practical
for them than the ability to sew.”
Muriel finds it easy to learn. She
was surprised to see how quickly
sewing brought paying results, too.
She expects to save lots of money
when she really acquires the know
how, because she lived all summer
in a collection of playclothes that
she cut from one pretty and inex
pensive pattern, using remnants of
material that her skillful mother
had left over from different home
sewing jobs. The money will go
into War Bonds, but Muriel’s

I' which is so stupendous from a pri
duction standpoint that screen statis
ticians gleefully grab their pencils
and beat a triumphant tattoo on the
xylphone of facts ariff figures.
Such a film is “Wilson,” the screen
story of President Woodrow Wilson
j and the first World War, which Dar
! ry-1 Zanuck has produced in Techni
I color for 20th Century-Fox. The log
j book of the costliets lroduction in the
history of the 20th Century-Fox’s
cavalcade is an almanac of broken
production records and studio “firsts”
Second oly to "Gone With the
Wind” in its length, “Wilson” runs
two hours and forty-three minutes on
the screen and in that time introduces
148 actors with speaking roles and
giant mob scenes on which thousands
of extras worked in a single scene.
More than 13,000 players appear in
the picture. Seven sound stages
were filled simultaneously with care
fully authenticated sets for the film
which ranges, in its locale, from a
football field at Princeton to rarious
rooms of the White House and the
Hall of Mirrors in the Palace of Ver"
sailles. A record number of sets (88)
were erected, 50 interior and 38 ex
teroir, with the entire film in Techi
nicolor these sets and their properties
had 1o be far more detailed in their
duplcation of the famous original
scenes than is necessary for black
and white photography.
A sample of the magnitude of the
production and the myriad problems
that were met, was the scene depict

tion of 1912 when Woodrow Wilson
was nominated for the presidency on
the 46th ballot by a great auditorium

Thousands of extras were engaged
to create the raucous, riotous atmos
phere cf a horn-locked convention.
Bands blared as noisily as in any
more recent conclaves in Chicago.
Impromptu parades spilled against
each other in the aisles. Straw hats
fanned coatless, sweltering shirts.
And all the excitement and pent-up
drama of a huge party pow-wow
were duplicated. Director Henry
King was assigned 50 special assist
ant directors just to ride herd on
that single mob scene and acted as
platoon leaders for the madly skirm
As a stage for this scene, Zanuck
hired the largest hall in the west, the
Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
It was the biggest interior set ever
photographed and, with the added e
lectricity required for the special
i Technicolor lighting, used enough
power tc serve a city of 100,000. Be
cause the load on the electric circuits
was so great, arrangements were
made to tap the power lines of a trol
ley c?r line which ran in front of
this set, the traction company coop
erated by running only one out of ev
ery three scheduled trips on the
street-car tracks. The greatest num

used this added juice to light the
Although not as big a set, nor fill
ed \vi*h as many players, the interior
set representing the House of Repre
sentatives in the nation’s Capitol, re
quired just as careful preparation to
insure historical authenticity. On
this set a President of the United
States is shown addressing a com
bined session of the Senate and
House, for the first time in a movie.
It was President Wilson’s request to
Congress for a Declaration of War
against Germany of April 6, 1917.
Perhaps the “Wilson” sets which
will be remembered the longest, are
the richly furnished rooms of the
White House; the famous Oval room,
the East Room, with its golden piano,
the Lincoln Room with its nine foot
bed, all meticulously copied down to
the last detail by Thomas Little,
head of 20th Century-Fox property
department, who spent three weeks in
the White House with Sketch book
and tape measure. “Wilson” is a pic
