This admission was made by Creighton Hale who is co-starred with Gladys Leslie in Ivan Abramson's photoplay "A Chiht for Sale." "For the first time in my life I was given an opportunity to play a part that I had always longed to por- tray and whether or not I have suc- ceeded I am willing to leave to the judg- ment of the great American 'Movies Fan.'
