Now we find that Mickey is not to drink, smoke, or tease the stock in the barnyard. Mickey has been spanked.
"It is the old, old story. If nobody knows you, you can do anything, and if everybody knows you, you can't do anythinbg--except what everyone approves, which is very littlke of anything."--Terry Ramsaye, THE MOTION PICTURE HERALD, Feb. 29, 1931.
