March 1924- Almonte
Famous actresses or movie stars seldom come to a country town. We know them only as we read about them. So Almonte people will be interested to learn that Miss Margery Wilson, whom we have all read about, is to be here herself this week. Miss Wilson will appear at the Orpheum on Saturday, March 8 when her motion picture “ Insinuation” will be shown. This was written, directed and produced !by herself. Miss Wilson will give a very intimate talk on the motion picture industry. Her topic will be “Life in the picture colony o f Hollywood.”.
A week later
The feature of the theatre in Almonte last week was the appearance of Miss Margery Wilson, the well known actress with her picture Insinuation. She spoke both afternoon and evening at the Orpheum and was introduced with greaceful words of welcome by Councillor George L Comba.
