Tired of posing the same old way... Tired of putting on the siren act... So Gene Robert Richee persuades Lilyan Tashman to be caught napping.

It’s a jolly new idea of Cecil Beaton, young English photographer. Beauties aren’t beauties, he says, until they’re off their guard. (He makes a lot of cracks like that on pages 46 and 47.)

Lilyan, he says, is the only screen beauty who even looks sophisticated.
