STA-K* HOPE; "Knight Without "at Marlene Dietrich, Robert Donat in Famous Show Sunday Marlene Oietrlch comes to the Rialto theater on Sunday in her first British film. Alexander Korda's "Knight Without Armor," which co-stars her with the dashing Robert Donat. The filmizntion of the famous James Hilton novel was held up several months due to the prolonged illness of Donnt, and Miss Dietrich's insistence that she would have no other leading man. Frances Marion, ace Hollywood scenarist, made the screen adaptation of this beautiful love story which casts Marlene and Donat in their most thrilling roles ns tin alluring Russian countess and a man of mystery from another world who are thrown together amid the tumult of a history-making clay. Out of n great hatred they develop a great love that leads them through a series of stirring adventures, offering moments of incomparable horror and incomparable bliss as they floe from the countless terrors that threaten them.

With Powell cnsl as a penniless lnitO^' cc P' n - vs tlle younger sister, and devil-may-care artist who lives in a trailer, and Miss Loy as the owner of a fashionable New York gown shop, the laugh-padded new story describes the efforts of the heroine to prevent her younger sister from marrying Powell instead of the man she herself has picked out for her. As may be suspected, in the end Miss Loy falls for the irresistible Mr. Powell herself, An outstanding group of players support the stars in the amusing cross- tangle of romantic strings. Florence John Bcal the man Miss Loy has chosen as her potential husband. Others in important roles include Jessie Ralph, Edgar Kennedy, Sidney Toler, Mary Gordon, Barnett Parker, Katharine Alexander and Priscilla Lawson. What are described as the most ultramodern New York interiors yet seen in a picture add to the interest of "Double Wedding," and feminine members of the audience will go wild-eyed over the stunning array of new gowns designed by Adrian for Miss Loy and Miss Rice.

'Beware of Ladies' at New Tuesday Donald Cook and Judith Allen in a Political 'Story The only fault that this jaded reviewer could find with "Beware of Ladies," at the New theater Tuesday and Wednesday, is that it is too good! The characters of the hard-boiled candidate for district attorney, the girl reporter", and the sinister blackmail racketeers are so real that they defy the tradition for Hollywood newspaper yarns! You will come away from the theater feeling that you, personally, have been involved in the young attorney's fight for the right, against the evil influences that seek .o undermine his campaign. Without u doubt, this illusion of "eality is created by excellent acting ay the entire east, and thoughtful and ntelligent directing on the part of Irving Pichcl. Donald Cook and Judith Allen, score icavily in the leading roles. Cook, as .he District Attorney candidate on the Progressive ticket, is a powerful and unforgettable character, while Judith Allen, lovelier than ever, plays the part of the clever and charming girl •eporter who wins the women voters over to Cook's side. Despite his motto .o "beware of ladies," Cook falls in ovc with Miss Allen, and together they defy Die underworld forces which seek to destroy' the young attorney's political career.

"Crime Counsel" at New Thursday Otto Kruger, Douglass Montgomery Head a Fine Cast He was the greatest detective in pictures—but when he faced the task of running down a crazed murderer.in real life who was terrifying Filmland celebrities, he bit off more than he could chew! ' This-is the'role presented by Jacks • "• Oakie in a new hilarity hit, "Super- Sleuth," which local screen-lovers will see at the New Sunday and Monday. Vivacious Anri Sothern is co-starred as the publicity chief of Oakie's studio, who is in continual hot water as a result of trying to. keep the conceited actor within bounds, and who, despite her exasperation, finds herself falling in love with him. With this dual situation the picture offers a mixture of laughter and thrills to film fans. Unlike most mystery stories, the identity of the murderer in "Super Sleuth" is revealed to the audience at the start. He is. the proprietor of a 'wierd "Crime" concession in the amusement district at Ocean Park, near the film capital, and an authority on criminology. He is also an intimate friend of Oakie's—a fact that builds up the comedy of the production, and greatly enhances its exciting moments when the criminal decides that Oakie is getting too warm on his trail, and must be "liquidated." The resulting efforts of the mild- looking killer to slay Oakie, and Oakie's narrow escapes from the death thai dogs his footsteps, make for some of the tensest as well as funniest scenes, and they keep the romance of the story balancing on a perilous knife-edge. ^SNAPSHOT CUIL Make a Christmas Picture Book Combining the poignancy of a "Stella Dallas" with the drama-tic sweep of a "Great Mouthpiece," Columbia's "Counsel For Crime" will have its'pre- mier local showing at the New theater on Thursday and Friday. The strong cast is headed by Otto Kruger anc Douglass Montgomery with lovely young. Jacqueline Wells as leading lady. Nana Bryant, Thurston Hall, Gene Morgan and Marc Lawrence are featured prominently. The story narrates the thrilling career of a brilliant and spectacular criminal attorney, played by Kruger who is ironically brought to justice by his own son (Douglass Montgomery). The youth doesn't know the, relationship, having been reared-by his foster father, a state senator, and the senator's wife, who is his real, secre' mother. In a climatic courtroom scene the son demands his father's life for a murder he didn't commit, little realizing-that he can prove Kruger guilty only because the latter refuses to sacrifice his son-prosecutor's happiness by disclosing the truth.
