Hew To Be A Film Star
Barely out of her teens,; Joy Nichols, already is famous on stage and radio. "Smithy*' will be her film debut-and a very promising one it is, too.,.'
Having to lighten her brpVn
hair is a small sacrifice, she thinks, for playing the role of Kay Sutton. Kay is the sympathetic. American girl who meets Smithy abroad, encourages his ambitions, and retains a soft spot for him right through the picture. It is an interesting part, second only, in importance to Muriel. Steinbeck, as "Lady Smithy."
Story of how Joy won the part has a definite Cinderella touch. Playing at the Melbourne Tivoli with her brother, George, Joy was staggered to receive a telegram" insisting that she be in Sydney the following Sunday for a screen test. Hasty plane journeys both ways brought her back to Mel bourne in time for the Monday night show.
Then she had to "sweat out" two weeks, until a further wire arrived asking her if she would be prepared to lighten her hair for the role. That meant getting hold of a. blonde wig, making An other test with a. Melbourne cameraman, and more quaking and shivering for. another three
Finally a: telephone call came through from Director Ken . G. Hall. His first wor.d$:were: "Hello, Ka:/ Sutton."
. Picture making has really .cap- - tured Joy's interest, and she; is already making .plans for fur ther onslaughts. London is first on the itinery. After that, Columbia
Pictures, America, will probably ; be "paging Kay Sutton."
