Boop-Boop-a-Doop Won Film Chance for Marjorie Hines, Co-Star for Rubin (1932)
Freeport Girl, With Deep Blue Eyes That Register, Even On Screen, Fame Bound.
Until the movies record colors, theatre audiences are going to miss one of the most attractive features of Marjorie L. Hines (Margie Hines), 19 year old Freeport lass, who has made her debut into the cinema world.
Miss Hines, for whom great things are predicted by her directors, has the bluest of blue eyes. But they are as expressive as they are blue and even on the black and white of silver screen, they "register" as they say in Hollywood with 100 per cent effectiveness.
Perfect Type For Comedienne
Petite, vivacious and strikingly pretty, Miss Hines is the perfect type for a comedienne, a role for which she was picked by Warner Brothers to play with Benny Rubin.
With Benny Rubin, she has just finished making a Warners picture called "The Perfect Suitor" The little Freeport girl plays the leading feminine in the film. Which was made at Warner Bros. studios in Flatbush.
A Helen Kane contest launched Miss Hines into a theatrical career. She won the competition hands down and out-booped all other contestants.
That got her on the stage and her voice won her a six months contract doing recordings for the Betty Boop cartoons produced by Paramount.
Her work as the voice for the little girl in the animated drawings attracted the attention of movie directors and she received an offer to play in the Benny Rubin picture.
With her voice, her good looks and her natural talent, her associates predict a brilliant future for the young actress.
Marjorie lives with her mother at 197 North Grove street, Freeport.
