Marylin Miller-Trains for Dancing – Strength Magazine – February, 1930

Perched at a secluded height above the roar of the city, Marylin Miller was resting after her arduous task and ordeal in making her first talking film, “Sally.” The agile footed songster, accustomed to dance and sing amid the plaudits of an approving audience, had spent a whole summer in the studios of Hollywood, appearing before the kleigs and michrophone, doing her stuff before a hushed group of directors and caremen. The silence of the huge studios, only punctured by the whizzy rattle of the grinding cameras. at first scared her, made her feel ill at ease. All of h er long years of experience before audiences did not help her in the ordeal before the camera.
