Jail Birds, Love Birds, and the Jewel Thief
Harriet Krauth, whose father owned a chocolate factory in Boston, won a beauty contest in 1926 and soon was making movies in Hollywood under the name Jean Fenwick. Two years later the family had moved to California, and Jean Fenwick wanted her younger sister to get into movies.
Violet Krauth was only fifteen years old but had a face and personality that the cameras loved. Jean spent weeks visiting casting offices and studio executives, trying to get her little sister Violet a screen test. Finally, Pathe scheduled a screen test for the young girl.
On the day of the test, Violet had spent hours getting makeup applied and her hair fixed to perfection. After sitting around for over six hours in the warm California heat, she was tired, nervous, and depressed to the point of not really getting excited when she was finally called to the set. The fifteen-year-old girl just wanted to get it over with and get back home.
When the director asked her to cry, she was so ready to cry that the tears flowed freely, impressing the director so much that she was hired on the spot. She eventually settled on Marian Marsh as her screen name and enjoyed acting until she retired from the big screen at the age of thirty.
In this crime adventure she is Bonnie Blair, a young girl working as a store clerk at the five and dime store. As our adventure opens she stops to stare into the window of a jewelry store, admiring all of the beautiful bracelets, rings and necklaces laid out in the window. Beside her is a young man who also stopped to admire the jewelry.
Suddenly a brick crashes through the jewelry store window and before the two can move, jewel thieves grab the jewelry in the window, but before they make their getaway, they plant one piece of jewelry in the boy’s pocket, and one piece of jewelry in the girl’s pocket.
Sure enough, the robbers get away and the two youngsters are convicted of robbing the store and sent to prison. Now out of prison, they discover that no one will hire a jailbird who is a convicted thief. The two jailbirds finally decide that the solution to their dilemma may be to become jewel thieves themselves. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
