THE BAKERSF1ELD CAL1FOUNIAN, MONDAY, AUGUST at, 1036 Sing, Baby, Sing Rollicking Musical Comedy Now at Fox Menjou, Faye and Three Ritz Brothers Produce Clever Picture By MAG 8AUNDEB8 "CINQ, BABY, SING," now at the ^ Fox theater, was probably Inspired by tho headlines of past year about a famous motion picture actor who fled across tho continent with a fair admirer In pursuit. That basically Is the plot for an uproarious musical comedy with Adolph Menjou as the slightly shop-worn actor and Alice Faye as a night club singer out of a job who becomes soinewhat Innocently Involved In thn extra curricular Romeo and Juliet act. The music is good, the dialogue bright, and the situations produce good old-fashioned belly laughs. ,-« Comedy Highlights ^* The comedy opens with the loonj< Rltz Brothers who practically steal tho show with their mad music and comedy dancing and pantomime. They keep up their engaging lunacy throughout the piece. Mr. Menjou is adept in doing a difficult comedy role without seemingly making a burlesque of being an ImpAssloned Romeo in a hospital bed shirt and sipping bay rum through a straw frohi a hot water bottle. Miss Faye's Ringing i has Improved. She has dropped a little weight and gained 100 per cent in screen .appearance thereby. Gregory Ratoff Is excellent as her agent who gets her plenty of publicity as the Juliet of the screen star, but Is hard put to know what to do with It. Ted Healy Is an excellent stooge for the agent aided and abetted by tho hard-voiced Patsy Kelly. Michael Whalen turns up as a too-smart reporter who 7' finally untangles the career of the | night club singer and all ends hap• .p"y. ' / Mediocre Film *" "Second Wife" with Gertrude Michael as "the second wife" of Wallet* Abel and Erik Rhodes, who drops a foreign accent with which lie has been cursed on the screen, as the persistent suitor, do their best with a rather unconvincing drama, It focuses attention on .a domestic misunderstanding which leads the wife to almost resigning her role as the second wife. Tho lines are rather stodgy and the end- Ing can be guessed from the beginning of the picture.
