Getting out of a cab is one of the things most women don’t do right. But most women aren’t Velda. Without half trying she made a production out of it. When you saw her do it you knew she wasn’t getting out of a cab so much as making an entrance onto the street. Nothing showed, but there was so much to show that you had to watch to see if it would happen or not and even when it didn’t you weren’t a bit disappointed.
