Conpson Thursday night, threatened
her life, bound and gagged her and
f escaped with jewelry the film adress
said she valued at $41,500.
f The actress, reporting the robbery
g to police, said the man also bound
and gagged E. D. Leshin, her former
production manager who was visiting

e was insured.
Miss Compson said she and Leshin
were playing cards when the robber
knocked on the door of her residence.
"Miss Compson?" he asked,
The actress replied in the afl'irna-
tive and opened the door.
Without'hesitating the robber
pushed open the door and forced
Miss Compson into the room with
Leshin. He made them walk up the
stairs to a bedroom where he bound
and gagged Leshin.
"Now listen," the robber warned,
"I know my business and if you make
any squawk I burn you both down."
The actress said before binding
and taping her mouth, the robber
forced her to reveal the hiding place
of the 'jewelry.
Fifteen minutes after the man fled,
Miss Compson freed herself and
Leshin and called police.
Several Hollywood residences have
recently been held up by robbers pos-
