9 OAKLAND TRIBUNE, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 19S3 9 WIET BACK SCREEN A PRESS AGENT Wild-Eyed Chiseler Provides Entertainment in Hard To Handle' at Orpheum STAG r- Br WOOD SOANCS Ha LaM.T N a picture tht contain several surprises and considerable entertainment, Jamet Caeney returned to the screen at the Orpheum "i yesteray, Jir I sence of six months, as "Tjtv Mrrill. the wild-eyed, chiseling press agent 01 "Mara xo Cagney has lost none Of his nimmeness uui -in tsi uif-enforced re- I h,.t Warners have chosen to re-enter him in, the robs him of the indViduallsm that has marked his rise to me rop vi Heretofore the chirm or ft cag ney picture has been in xne reu-. tKA efttr1 imnArfionation and the comedy relief has been left to other actors. In "Hard to Handle that assignment is also his with a difficulty in the person of Ruth Dormelly. ' , .. . Had it not been for the fact that the authors used up all their material on Miss Donnelly's earlier scenes and then forced her to repeat for the rest of the picture, it is not unlikely that she would have robbed the star of his honors. She is the avaricious mother of Mary Brian, a marathon dancer, who becomes the sweetheart of a flip young promoter. Frankly intent on promoting her offspring Into the most advantageous marital alliance, and at the same time determined to be recognUed as her "sister", Miss Donnelly does a grand Job as long as she has an -opportunity. But as "Hard to Handle" proceeds, the Interest In the affairs of the young promoter increases to such an extent that the role of the harp-tongud mother loses point Add to this fact that Miss Brian turns in a vapid performance as thd blonde daughter, much inferior to the siren of Claire Dodd, the picture finally emerges as a Cagney victory. , "Hard to Handle" has been directed chiefly for laughs by Mervyn Le Roy and he achieved his pur- - ...;tu..t miifth difficulty bV exaggerating both characterizations and situations, u is me siuiy w. m rise and tall and subsequent rise of the shoe string promoter with unique ideas on promotion. During the course of the picture, Houston, firanch. the author, pays his respects to the Florida grapefruit boom, the eighteen-day uiet, the marathon dance racket, the society endorsement gags, and other national indoor sports. The points are not made with especial subtlety, however, a burlesque note obtaining throughout , Out of the picture one gets the feeling1 that Cagney must return to his own style of playing it he intends to regain his position; that Warners are overlooking a bet in Mi., nnrirl: and that Miss Donnelly, i.Uii4.nW handlarf.

CHICAGO, Feb. 18.-rUP)-The de- jection of a cowboy, without a horse pulled at the heart strings of policemen Harry Larson and Arnold Piede. They found him lamenting tne fates, as he sat on a snowbank, fit-tired as he was in a two gallon hat, a pair of chaps, a flannel shirt and high heeled boots and spurs. "A terrible town, this," he said. "Mere I come in with three carloads Of gteers and seU 'em. I get $4000 and start out from the stockyards on my hoss and what happens? Somebody takes me for my money in a card game and then somebody else steals the hot while I'm gam bling. If the man was in Texas we'd shore string him. up." Touched, the officers led him to the address where he said he had been staying, and a young woman appeared. "This fellow," the officers quoted her as saying, "is James Morgan of Amarillo, Tex., he's my husband. But he didn't have a lot ot money when he went out to play western in Chicago and he never had a hnrRp" Having spoken this, the policemen said, she pulled off one of her husband's boots and struck him con- rlni.infflv aprnffN the hark.
