January 13, 1932

Anna May Wong Starring
Fu Man Chu, Oriental mystery man, has a daughter. She is being revealed to theater audiences with the unreeling today of “Daughter of the Dragon.”
Ann May Wong is in the title role of this melodrama, which has Scotland Yard and Limehouse as the setting. Warner Oland is again Fu Man Chu while Sesue Hayakawa has an important role.

Philip Barry’s “The Animal Kingdom,” which has been postponed several times, was scheduled to start last night in New York under the banners of Gilbert Miller. Leslie Howard is the star.

Excerpted from Luella Parsons:

Marx Brothers To Start Work On New Picture
Los Angeles – Jan 12
Rumors of dissension in the Marx Brothers camp were hit squarely in the eye by B.P. Schulberg. The boys get here with wives, aunts, uncles, dogs, cats, etcetera later in the month to start work on “Horse Feathers,” their next picture. Now the Hollywood bridge and backgammon can go on. Harpo, Groucho, Chico and Zeppo, the champions of these games, will be here to defend their titles.

Hollywood is speculating on what will happen when Betty Compson leaves for a year’s vaudeville tour. Will she marry Irving Weinberg or say goodbye to him.

The John Barrymore’s baby is due in February.
Mary Pickford, remodeling Pickfair, is choosing white for the drawing room. Douglas Fairbanks, six pounds heavier, is trying to remove his added poundage by strenuous exercise.
