It's just as if the audience and I were sitting down together. That doe s n't exactly explain, of c our s e, but what I am trying to say Is this, that there is an intimacy and closeneSB of touch be- tween player and audience which isn't pos siJ ble to attain In the movies. But, all in all, I like s creen work best of all. The screen llas such possibilities for the shifting of s cenes - It is more akin ~o life in that respect than the stage, and that Is why I prefer it.\ In \The Purple Highway\ Miss Kennedy Is supported by Monte Blue, leading man; · vincent Coleman, Pedro de Cordoba, Dore Davidson and otheT well knowu players of stage and sc~ea.
