September ami •'f'.-Jtobor, arc listed in the first nll- | \dustry fall announcement ever is- I'etl from Hollywood. The unnouticG- | cut is made today in connection will) j c Motion Pictures' Greatest Year iwjj mpaign, sponsored by all branches f^Xf/'nc industry, to stimulate bu.sinc.ss. i 'iS'The industry feels that, inasinuch !?; motion pictures are a barometer to i|iospcrity, the success of its drive si; bound to be bcncmiciiil to the na- ji,m at lurRp, leading to an upswing in aij.siness, bringing more jobs nnrl j|>'*Ming more money into general cir- jfilalinn. '{'Comprehensive prepanitions have j|' en made, according to the announce- i If [cut, to insure the quality of pro- j •,.lj iction living up to advance notices i i.^^l justifying cainpnign claims. The I i H|i'ality and success of such pro-re- i I;, isc pictures us "Alexander's Rag- I |i_nc Band," "Algiers," "Marie An-| il'melte," 'Four Daughters," 'Mother! if irey's Chickens," "The Texans," i J' .cttcr of Introduction" and "Barefoot , if •/," do in fact indioatc. the produc- i '''i s feel, that the season of 1938-39 will 5 'Motion Fictincs' Circate.st Year." I A HciJIh.v Trend J Attention i;' al.vo called to certain .' iticeable trends in the fall product .^lich, it is felt, reflect « healthy > action on the part of the studios to ; c public dciiVriiid for varied and irj- |'ij': lligent entertaininent. There is a .; iticeable absence of cynical "reiil- 'j 11," and a return to wholesome and ,V ton homely roimnlic themes. There !•... fewer crime i-U:tm vs and those on :, e list indicate a more serious, j; ciological approach to the theme. ; i ! cturcs like "Dead End" and "Crime • ; ;:hool" have ;et a new motif which ; carried^ out in such productions as ' 'Joys' Town." "Gangster's Boy" and ; Vuvcnile Court." 1 ' This greater dignity in presentation ; •,'lors all types of motion pictures. ,-usical camedies and musical drama ; •:. loven are listed in all) will have '• ; ore story and less spectacle. There i :> .ll be greater credibility, the pro; ; icers as-sure us, in the treatment of ''CO—and a marked absence of the ^ ' fly hits girl" cycle. Of the il-l productions, eight arc irn well-known Broadway plays, in- '.iting that the .stage is still a major , uicc for Hollywood materials.

THE AVERAGE SPEAKS HIS IE- I .TS HARD for a fellow like me who thinks apple r' pie is one of nature's greatest gifts to man to believe that there are folks who honestly don't like it at all. On the other hand, I can't abide liver and bacon — though I know it's highly regarded by many. We all have our likes and our dislikes. We're all different — thanks be! A dull world it would be if we weren't. That's why I say that the most remarkable thing about motion pictures is that they hit such a high average of pleasure-giving. , Take any individual picture and you'll find that most people who see it will get a lot of enjoyment out of it. Not all, naturally. For example, I think a certain star is tops — while, to hear the way my next-door neighbor goes on about her, you'd think she wasn't good enough to be an "extra". Or my wife sees a picture during the afternoon and raves about it at dinner. Maybe son and I take it in that evening — and come home feeling that M other i* losing her judgment. And there you are. It's the apple pic situation all over again. But, taking them all together, I figure that the "movies" give more pleasure to more people at a lot less cost than most anything the mind of man was ever responsible for — and have done the human race more downright good than all the medicines concocted since creation. And I'll say this: The times when I've been disappointed in a picture have been a lot fewer than the other times when I've gone to sec one I wasn't especially excited about in advance and been mighty glad I did. Sure, I criticize the pictures. I pay my money and that's my right. As a matter of fact, I kind of figure that $ 250,000.00 5,4O4 CASH PRIZES LIST OF PRIZES! 10 of $1,000 «Kfa, $10,000 40 of *500 we* . 20,000 40 of $250 well • 10,000 300of$100each, 30,000 5,000 of $10 each, 50,000 1st Prize . , .$50,000 2nd Prize. , , 25,000 2 of $10,000 each, 20,000 5 of $5,000 each, 25,000 5 of $2,000 each, 10,000 5,404 TOTAL $250,000 FREE!
