Page Six HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Friday, September 17, 1948 Years of Top Cast ii The "Best Years 'if Our live:-." a film that won Academy award?, •will play at the Satru-,,-r theater three days starling Sunday. The picture, one that nobody should miss, stats Myrna Loy, Frederic March, Dana Andrews. Teresa Wright, Virginia Mayo and many other well-known slurs. Republic's eagerly awaited "Old Los Angeles." starring William Ellitt, Joan Carroll. Catherine McLeod and Joseph Schildkraut, opens Sunday at the Kialto theatre. — TODAY - SATURDAY starring Marsha Hunt • William Lundigan CSiar'as Winningsr • Gail Patrick • DON 'Red' BARRY ® NOAH BEERY The stellar trio so outstanding as stars of "The Fabulous Texnn" is teamed again by popular demand. The long-time favorite, Josoph Schildkraut, is added to make this a four-star picture, literally and figuratively speaking. The glamorous days of the early Los Angeles furnish the background for the plot, set in JB4H. Klliott is a young Missouri frontier marshal who journeys to California to join his brother in gold prospecting. Upon his arrival, he learns that his brother has been murdered by one of th'J outlaw ring which controls the city. A j righteous vengeance to track down the assassin becomes the dom'.nai- ing factor of the Missourian's life. The first of his top suspects is charming but ruthless Johnny Mo- roll, a role which John Carroll brings to life realistically. The second suspect is gambler LUJE Savardin, played with his customary finesse by Joseph Scbild- kraut. Lastly is a lovely singer and dancer, delightfully pottrayec' by Catherine McLcod. The investigation is tense throughout. It is complicated b v one unexpected event after an other, and then by the machina tions of a misguided Mexican girl, played by Estelita Rodriguez. The plot proceeds to build up to an exciting climox in which the outlaw responsible for the city's rampant lawlessness pays lor his crimes. Producer-dricctor Joseph Kann. an old and able hand at this type of action movie, has outdone him' self on every score. "Old Los Angeles" is heartily recommended to the family audiences because iV weaves together educational values and .wholcsomcncs.s without sacri- [ ficing an iota of enjoyment or diversion.
