Baby LeRoy again wins acting honors as the tot stolen from his cradle. The story is breathless with suspense, every phase of the sensational case captured in its action.

A Technicolor cartoon and Metrotone news round out the bill. » * 0 PARAMOUNT'S STRONG PROGRAM PLEASES Paramount theater's first two-feature program is winning high favor this week. Friday inaugurated its new policy of two outstanding pictures on every bill, with Kay Francis in "Mandalay" and Lionel Barrymore in rins Side of Heaven" as a forerunner of the entertainment to come. rhe two pictures are a definite success, "Mandalay" supplying an exotic love story, and "This Side of Heaven" rich in human interest and impressive characterization. Kay Francis plays a reigning beauty in a Ksngoon night club, whose determination to seek a new life is realized when she boards a steamer for "Mandalay." Her romance v/ith a young doctor, Lyle Talbot. is interrupted by the appearance of her first love, Rlcardo Cortez. The emotional struggle that follows carries suspense and thrills in its wake— all enhanced by the bizarre and colorful backgrounds of the Far East. Warner Oland heads a capable supporting cast, including Ruth Donnelly, Reginald Owen and David Torrence "This Side of Heaven" sparkles with laughter and tears— a heart-warming story or lamily life affording Lionel Barrymore an unforgettable role Father or a modern family, he must guide each one, even his wife (Fay Bainter) at, the same time burdened by his own impending disgrace. He contributes a brilliant portrayal. Tom Brown, Man' Carlisle Mae Clarke and una Merkel are well cast.

Wodehouse Comedy Will Be Produced By College Group Westminster college's dramatic organization. The Westminster Players, have .selected a sparkling comedy for the 1934 production, to be given at 8:15 p. m. at the college. "Leave 3t to Psmilh," an adaptation by Ian Hay of the book by that cheerful English idiot. P. G. Wodehouse, is an amalgamation of genuine British art and our inimitable American slang. ILs situations are absurd in that happy fashion of which is master, [the dialogue is refreshing, sometimes rollicknr*, sometimes subtle. _ Psmith, hero of the drama, is a fugitive from a fish factory, eager for adventure, even crime, and carries out a sinister plot for the marriage o£ two of his friends. Ford Holmes is cast as the redoubtable Psmilh; Minor Ball and Dorothy Short have the parts of the young couple, Freddie and Phyllis, respectively, in whom he is interested. Many of the actors are new to the ranks of the players, but have been aptly chosen for their roles. The remainder of the cast follows: The Earl Actors Name N R A Nominees HOLLYWOOD, Cal.—With two superior court judges of Los Angeles present to vouch for the legality of procedure, the Screen Actors' guild of Hollywood elected nominees from their ranks to represent them on two N R A code administration committees.

Warner Baxter Takes ]Yo Chances With Burglars Warner Baxter desires it to be known that he is installing photoelectric burglar alarms throughout his spacious new house at Bel-Air. The electric cell, using a "black" light, can detect the presence of a shadow. The Fox Film star, now appearing in "The Follies," believes in electrical "servants." His garage doors swing open automatically upon approach and his heat ranges all are operated by "juice." But the burglar alarm is his pride. photoplays. According to word received from New York recently by Paramount studios, makers of women's dresses are having to turn elsewhere for ideas to provide a sufficient number of new styles to meet the demands of their retail outlets. Film' musical.?, according to this informant, at the moment are providing the bulk of new fads and fancies in fashions, to be copied, machine cut, machine sewn and rushed to the 3 hops. Marlene Dietrich, it is pointed out. Rhas 20 costumes in "The Scarlet Empress," but the period is middle eighteenth century in the imperial Russian court, with styles featuring exaggerated bouffant hip lines and hoop skirts, which scarcely meet the requirements of the active woman of today. Among other pictures being filmed at Paramount is "The Man Who Broke His Heart," laid, in San Francisco's Barbery Coast in the year 1910, with Dorothy Dell and other feminine players wearing hobble skirts and such. "The Trumpet Blows" displays only Spanish costumes. "Bolero" is a picture of the 1910 period, although in later sequences the principals wear favorite "gay nineties" in "It Ain't No Sin," with the setting of the story laid in the south. These are the types of stars to which the public has been taught to look for fashion hints. It has long been no secret that early stills from new pictures are at a premium, and various studios have not been particu larly happy to discover that a design created at considerable cost for n particular star makes its appearance in the so called specialty shops as quickly, and sometimes more quickly than the picture can be edited and released to first-run •(heaters. Sally Rand's Fan Dance Disappointing to Some A lot of folks were keenly disappointed in Sally Rand's Chicago fan dance, according to Stella Sato, Jap ancse maid of the blond actress.
