CHESTER MORRIS GETS GARY COOPER ROLE IN NEW FILM
By Louella Parsons
One by one Gary Cooper’s pictures are being handed to someone else. In each letter Gary postpones his return to Hollywood.
He is enjoying his hunting expedition in the African jungles and he feels it is foolish for him to try to get back before he is entirely well. Chester Morris, who has an arrangement with Paramount whereby he make a certain number of pictures a year, will draw The Glass Key, an original by Dashiell Hammett.
There will be no sigh of regret on the part of Richard Barthelmess because he cannot go as far as the Orient this Spring. Dick is very happy to go only to Tahiti and to be back in Hollywood in the middle of March for the simple reason that he makes The Cabin in the Cotton his next picture.
