SATURDAY, JULY 27, 1929 THE MORNING HERALD, HAGERSTOWN. MARYLAND nvi r Offerings At Theatres EDDIE DOWLING FILM DAZZLES EVEN THOUGH IT IS JAZZLESS --CLOSES TONIGHT A musical talkie without jazz! That sounds almost like a dare. And it is. Eddie Dowling dared to write and appear in a show that had no ounce of hey-hey. whoop-de-doo or vo-deo do, and he won! "The Rainbow Man. 1 ' the first pic l u r e in which Eddie Bowling, Broadway's favorite son; has ever appeared, is rich in tuneful melodies of the calmer, heart-stirring type, sung by the star and others in the production, and it is based on a plot which deals with plain, home-loving, non- artificial folks. "The Rainbow Man" was a tremendous success in New York, where it premiered. And now at the Maryland hundreds have been thrilled. You mustn't miss it. The real, human, musical talkie. It's a "natural." It will be shown for the last times j today. I John D.

This picture, which comes to the Academy Monday, provides Jack with his i n i t i a l role as doctor o f . pipes and sinks. Dorothy Mackaill.j co-starred with Jack in the picture, mistakes the plumber for a movie star and then the fun begins. With this popular screen team in two such admirable roles, there is no doubt that "Two Weeks Off'' will provide more than the usual amount of fun and entertainment.

SIX OP SIS "Welcome Home," a, musical comedy trying out un, the road, is stranded. Willie Durant. the financial backer, is friendly with Xita French, the star, but, strangely enough, re/uses to put up afiy more money. Behind Sita's back he is attentive to Kitty, the check room girl with stage aspirations, and induces her father, "Dad" Sdalone, stage doorman, and her sweetheart, the head usher, to invest Nita was crooning softly as she swayed gently back a n d . forth, a beatific smile lighting her face. She gazed into Harold Astor's eyes as though he were a god descended from Olympus. "Just as a child w o u l d , let's make believe We're in the wildwcod, dreaming, Knighthood was in flower. You'll find no sorrow there 'cause . everyone's your friend." "I'll throw every one of those Jim^.y, trie head usner. 10 invest,* * ' « «.«^ · "*-·· ~"~ r" v cZZ rteir 5Gt-inff5 in ifte piece.

Sam turned on his heel and headed for the stage door. "Now look here. Sam," Jerry caught hold of tha man's arm. Sam shook him off. "Try Wall Street. That's headquarters for suckers." Sam continued on his way, leav- ·wings. "Just you dare!" Nita whispered savagely. "And each tomorrow there you'll find the rainbow's end." Jerry caught Sarah's arm and dragged her swiftly away.

He must do some- against the jva s ^methodicaj^ tiling, and that something had to be done quickly. Perhaps he could talk to Nita and see li'. shs wouldn't try to use her Influence on Durant. It was a funny thing, he reflected, that Durant should refuse to put any more money in the show, especially with Nita as the star. That was one or th^ reasons Nita had been given so many song num- Rave Notices -Ire Showgirls' light De- bers. Not that she couldn't actually put them over, but a younger, newer face might have been a little more attractive In the role that called for pulsating youth. He shrugged his shoulders. Anyhow, Nita was in the piece! He started towards her. A figure in organdie that swung ludicrously about revealing ruffled bloomers flashed by him. Sarah Bogardy, the comedienne, sent him a smile from a mouth that was too large to bs exactly pretty, and hurried into the wings. Jerry shook his head. No use trying to see Nita now. Once Sarah got into the wings the two would immediately start one of their cat-and-dog battles, and when Nita went into -battle -- Jerry shuddered. That was part of the trouble. Everybody was on edge, nervous, uncertain as to the future. "Miss French, I've asked you and asked you and asked you to take your suit cases and things out of my dressing room. I shan't ask you again." Jerry could hear Sarah already beginning to upset Nita. "Can I depend on that," Nita. retorted, her eyes flashing fire. "I certainly don't intend to work with you any longer." cams the reply. "I won : t stand it! I won't -- " "Don't hysterics me, darling. I'm a woman, myself," Nita cried. "I hope you have gallstones," Sarah called, and then Jerry seized her arm and ; ulled her back as Nita turned, hand upraised, as though about to si p Sarah's face. "Oh my darling, how sweet, how very sweet it is to have you back." It was Nita's voice coming from the stage, as she softly twined her arms about Harold AsLor's neck. "Do you remember ·when we were just little children playing together along the levee?" "Do you remember that game we used to play, the game of pretend." Harold was breathing gently the cue for t^ie on-coming song. The orchestra took up the melody. "Games we played when we were little children Still seem nice somehow, After all we're only little children Though we're grown up now." "Cat!" Nita's voice carried off into the wings as she neared the stage proscenium. Turning her back on the audience she glared at the belligerent Sarah. "Come, dear, and wander through the land of Let's Pretend. Away out yonder where the Springtime knows no end." As though a miniature e a r t h q u a k e had rocked a painted town, houses and streets were swallowed up and new vistas of gardens, homes and greenery were belched forth, teetering uncertainly for a moment and then settling, into a semblance, of concrete order. Intermingling odors of powder, perfume and warm, damp flesh filled the air. Show girls dashed by, wreching off their clothes as the"- ran to make a quick change. Flashes of bare, moving · legs, bright costumes, garish paste jewels, made moving spots of color and light against the dull drab walls. Out in front of the curtain the dancing feet of the Dorsey twins pattered and clogged to the rhythm of low-down blus. "'Well, I see you found him, Mr. Bloom," Jimmy came running through the stage bos into the wings, almost upsetting the retreating figure of Sam Bloom. "Yep, he found me," Jerry nod- ed wearily. "He wants to attach the bos office or take the scenery." "Ah, gee, Mr. Bloom, you couldn't do a thing like that," Jimmy gasped. "Why, we got a great show here. It's a new idea. It's wonderful! You just look at it once and you'll see." "I'm through arguing," Bloom grunted, trying to pull away from Jimmy's clutching fingers. " I ' l l take out every stick of scenery as soon as my trucks get here." Jerry shock his head hopelessly. He'd messed things ui for fair now, he told himself bitterly. Why had he had to tell Sam Bloom that Durant was through with the show. Perhaps he could have stalled Sam along for awhile a I least. . It must have been the strain of trying to save the show that was beginning to tell. Per haps Durant v aid come through all right. Why hadn't he waited until the backer had come in. He'd talk him into paying the bills once he arrived. "Oh, hello, Mr. Bloom! Hello, hello, hello!" Sarah's strident voice cut short the manager's meditations and caught Bloom's attention. "Did you hear my laugh? Wasn't it simply marvelous. Look at the notices I've been getting." Sarah dived down into the bosom of her dress and drew forth a newspaper clipping. Before anyone could stop her she began to read. "With the exception of Sarah Bogardy's off-stage laugh, Jerry Connolly's new musical venture is a good, clean show. Man and boy, we've heard many farninine laughs but never one which seems to promise EC much." Sarah gave a reproduction of the laugh that had caused such critical comment. "We predict a very exciting future for Miss Bogardy," she continued, "and hope to see more of her. Our 'phone number is Market 356S. Ask for Jack.' Isn't that sweet," the comedienne demanded. "That's a great notice," Bloom agreed, trying to edge away. "Well, sorry, folks, but I've got to go. Going to 'phone tor the trr.cUs." Jimmy looked at Jerry, horror stamped on his boyish face, but before the manager could raise his voice in protest Sarah had caught Bloom's arm and was talking at him, her words tumbling out, staccato, like the popping of a machine gun. "Now, Sammy," she dragged him toward the wings. "I haven't seen you for days and days. I won't let you run away. Come on and watch the show. You'll like it. I'll stay right here with you i u n t i l I go on. This nest is my i big scene." : "Nope. I've got important business to attend to." Sam tried to withdraw Sarah 1 hand from his arm. "Go on Sam," Jerry put In eagerly. "Take a look at the show. You'll enjoy it." (To be continued) LOUSE FAZENDA AND CHESTER CONKLIN IN "HOUSE OF HORRORS," AT THE COLONIAL FOR LAST TIMES TODAY Two of the screen's most famous funsters, Louise Fazenda-and Chester Conklin, have new typss of roles in the weird and creepy mystery thriller that is now showing at the Colonial. The picture is "The House of Horror," a special First National-Vita- phone attraction, and the famous artists of human comedy head the cast. Their real task is registering supreme fright! James Ford and Thelma Todd figure in a very appealing and novel love element in the picture, and tense, baffling mystery is supplied by grotesque characters played by William V. Mong, William Orlamond, Dale Fuller and other wel! known artists.
