A full-fledged star at seventeen! That’s the role thrust upon Marian Marsh. Will the responsibility prove too much and, meteor-like, will she rise only to fall?

Coached for a career by her sister, Jeanne Morgan, her possibilities first recognized by John Barrymore for “Svengali,” her head wasn’t turned and there’s little likelihood that it ever will be.

And so she reaches stardom with more poise than many a prima donna of the movies ever attains. Here’s an earnest wish for her future.
