Three pictures were previewed, in Hollywood this week. The "BACK STREET," starring Charles Boyer and Margaret Sullavan. When Irene Dunne and John Boles-first appeared in "Back Street," the Fanny Hurst story, years ago, it was a screen sensation; flocked in 'droves to see this tear-jerking sentimental love story. that was years ago -- and in this present Universal re-make, much to bring women into the theatre, but little to keep them The present story ef "BACK STREET" is- *« different from original Fanny Hurst yarn; it's "theme is out-dated and terribly fashioned. It's a story «f a man and a girl whose romance as they are about to be married. They meet five years later, married, so she manages to be happy with her first love in spare when he's not needed by his family or his work. She occupies street address while he lives in high society. The human equations brought forth in this picture were highly probable a decade or ago -- highly improbable today. So far as the acting is concerned, there's little to squawk but I got awfully'tired of Charles Boyer's overly-romantic attitude, and I thought Margaret Sullavan was painfully aware that,it l was all for a lost cause, Usually, I consider Margaret Sullavan one of Margaret Sullavan and Charles Boyer in a scene from "Bask Street." three best actresses in Hollywood, but after "BACK STREET" have to take a back seat to some others. When "BACK slow and draggy, it is dull and too dramatic. So, by all film it's not the picture you'll expect it to be!
