"Douglas Fairbanks, America's motion picture favorite,
will soon appear in his new production of "The Iron Mask". This is
a sequel to "The Three Musketeers" with Mr. Fairbanks again
playing the part of D'Artagnan. The characters, however, are more
romantic and adventurous and Mr. Fairbanks considers the picture
as a whole to be faster moving than any story he has ever brought
to the screen. The manufacturers of Lucky Strikes have requested
me to read what Douglas Fairbanks has to say regarding the Lucky
Strike Cigarette. Mr. Fairbanks says - "I get more kick from the
Lucky Strike flavor than from any other cigarette. They are
easier on my throat and wind. That's why I smoke nothing but
Luckies. Toasting really means a lot to me. My own experience has
proven that toasting not only takes out the bad things but
doubles the flavor."
MR. ROLFE: That is the high opinion Douglas Fairbanks has of
Lucky Strike cigarettes. The Lucky Strike Dance
Orchestra continues with Crazy Rhythm, a musical
impediment of speech, together with Mitzi's favorite
from Pom-Pom, Oh Evelyn' Stop Your Develin'.

MR. ROLFE: A waltz dedicated to all lovers, The Sweetheart of
Sigma Chi, played by the Lucky Strike Dance Orchestra.
8.(THE SWEETHEART OF SIGMA CHI - ORCHESTRA)
MR. ROLFE: All nations are invited to dance "The International
Patrol" played by the Lucky Strike Dance Orchestra.
9.(INTERNATIONAL PATROL - ORCHESTRA)
A short time ago the world was thrilled by the daring of
Amelia Earhart, the first woman ever to cross the Atlantic
Ocean by airplane. Of Lucky Strike cigarettes Miss Earhart said
"Lucky Strikes were the cigarettes carried on the Friendship
when she crossed the Atlantic. We bought a carton in Newfound-
land before we took off, because Luckies are best. On a long
hard grind of this kind they were real life-savers, and were
smoked continuously from Trepassey to Wales. I think nothing
else helped so much to lesson the strain for all of us." The
makers of Lucky Strikes thank Miss Earhart - "Lady Lindy" for
her high praise of Lucky Strike cigarettes.
MR. ROLFE: This is a combination of the program of the Lucky
Strike Dance Orchestra. Here's a musical conception
of troubled sleep, caused by Welsh Rarebit - The
