PICKFORD FEATURES IN SHOW AT LOEWS Favorite Has Complete Change of Personality in "Coquette"; Golden Curls Lost Mary Pickford, "America's Darling," will be featured in Coquette at Loew's Theatre week of April 15. This film is the talking picturization of the stage success by the same name that was written by George Abbott and Ann Preston Bridgers. Coquette brings to the screen a complete change in the personality of Mary Pickford. Gone are the long, golden curls, filmdom's most famous "prop," and also the shy, retiring, self-sacrificing Orphan Annie. Now you see the new Mary, looking like an illustration from Vogue, a smartly modish young woman who can vamp any one she cares to. As the coquette of a small Southern town, Miss Pickford is said to give a magnificent performance. The story is powerful and emotional and has a sad ending. Norma Besant, the vamp of the small town below the Mason-Dilxon line, is honestly in love with Michael, played by Johnny Mack Brown. Some scenes deserve...
