Gardner James, the copy said, has been indulging himself in "too much acting," but they predict he'll really be a fine star when he's indifferent to the craft or the medium.

I think they mean he's made too many pictures.

He'd have 14 more years in movies after this, then it would end in 1940; his last role was in a serial episode. Eventualy the medium was indifferent to him.

No roles after that. Died in '53 at the age of 50.
