Her newest is “Airport 1975“ and curiously appropriate because she has starred in more pictures aloft than most screen beauties. Among her credits are "Test Pilot", “Too Hot To Handle” with Clark Gable, “Night Flight” with William Gargon, and “Wings in the Dark” in which she played an aviatrix. Myrna can also be identified with a score of oriental roles she played in the early days of her career, not to mention her six memorable pictures with William Powell as Nora Charles in “The Thin Man”. But with more than 120 pic tures to her credit Myrna says happily, “I’ve never been typed and I’ve kept working all the time." Valentino Discovery She was in the ballet chorus of Grauman’s Chinese theater early in the 1920s when Valentino first saw a photograph of her At that time the original Latin lover was the boxoffice king at Paramount Pictures. “Valentino liked to discover people,” Myrna recalled on her day off from Universal^ shooting schedule. “On the strength of that photograph he asked me to come to Paramount and make a screen test for his next picture. “I was only 19 years old and thrilled at the thought of working in pictures. He let me use his dressing room. The title of the movie was ‘Cobra’. But I didn’t get the part. I was too young.” Not long afterward Mvrna SERVING NIGHTLY CHOICE PRIME RIB OF BEEF Appearing At The Keyboard MARY PIKE Nightly except Fri.

Prefers New York Myrna hasn’t been a resident of Hollywood since 1948 She prefers the action in New York where she is immersed in social causes Currently she is working for the national committee against discrimination in housing. She was on the U.S. commission for UNESCO in the 1950s. She has not been called a grand dame of movies nor east in a series of sweet old lady roles for the excellent reason that there remains a twinkle in her eye and a buoyancy about her performances.

There is the problem of working in .smaller roles for less money and then trying to return to larger roles for a higher salary. It seldom happens that way “I never felt badly about making the change.” Her decision to accept lesser roles is very probably the reason why Myrna continues to make movies in her 70th year while her contemporaries have faded from sight .T(*. .Ad ■ )W \STOWN k MAHI I ASI CINTI* id OWN 8:15 SHOW 9:00 fried thicken - • 1435 bt Ave. SE    •    4640    1st    Ave.    NE • 1334 Edgewood Rd.
