Leila Hyams, MGM star of the Roaring Twenties and female lead in the studio’s first talkie, 1928’s Alias Jimmy Valentine, takes her bike out for a morning cruise.
Here’s the snipe (watch publicist struggling with grammar and anatomy!): “Bicycle days are here again! Leila Hyams, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer actress, was one of the first to try her hand at this keen new sport, finding, besides a keen enjoyment of the fun, that pedaling a bicycle every morning on the sands of her Mailibu home has kept away the dangerous curves of the figure. She also advocates riding to develop a high-arched instep, so necessary since they are allowed to peep beneath the ankle-length skirts.”
