YOU CAN’T HAVE EVERYTHING

Maxine Sullivan, the ninety-eight pound chocolate-colored swinger with the Irish name who made the Scotch “Annie Laurie” a national figure recently went to the Coast and got her first real break in pictures. The Sullivan celluloid is Paramont’s “St. Louis Blues.” Maxine travelled far and fast since she first won attention with her unusual song delivery at New York’s Onyx Club.

But to attain this rapid-fire success, Maxine had to give up something. The while of coast night life - the first taste of real success - all took the toll. Her marriage to John Kirby went on the rocks. Intimates insist they were happier when Maxine was singing in a badly-ventilated room on W. 52nd Street, without fame or fortune.
