Elsie Randolph as Joy Dean in "That's a Good Girl" (British and Dominions)

To be a star in revue demands, above all things, vitality and a quick stage intelligence. In this picture of Elsie Randolph as herself there is every evidence of a mind lively beyond the ordinary. The chief problem which faced the actress in making up for the character here shown was, how can a woman with more than her share of wits make herself look as if she had less? Black steel spectacles to hide the light in her eyes, a pale featureless flaxen head of hair, a general dimming of all colour in the features, and an adenoidal gape - these work the transformation.
