ROBINSON AND BEBE DANIELS IN "SILVER DOLLAR' T IB13RTY-magazine gives IBdward.G. A-* Robinson's latest picture, "Silver Dollar," which, opens tomorrow nlglit at the Nile theater, a four-star rating. The review, says, "The i-emarkable and, as It turns out, highly .fortunate cast- Ing of Kdward G. Tloblnson as a west-, ern prospector provides him with one of the best roles of his screen career." As Yates Martin, Mr. Robinson's character, is based upon tho rich and picturesque career of Haw Tabor, a Colorado pioneer whoso touch turned everything to silver. Tabor rode to fabulous wealth with the Leadvlllo silver strike, bought his way Into the United States Senate for a term.of 80 days, discarded his wife of hardpan days In favor of ah ornate blonde, badgered an American president Into attending the wedding, built great hotels and theatars In.Colorado to glorify his luck, and sank to poverty when America, under McKlnley, definitely adopted the gold standard. Silver plunged In value, and Tabor died Broken-hearted In 1809. In Mr. Robinson's competent handj .the Tabor counterpart,.Yates. Martin, becomes a -curiously, fascinating character, reckless, extravagant, flambuoy ant, a simple man dazzled by his own luclt. In poverty, forgotten' by. tho people he, had befriended, .Martin dies upon the deserted stage of the great Denver opera house he had erected for his beloved state., "Silver Dollar"'ls an engrossing picture of boom mining days, when our land was rugged and adventurous, hard living and hard playing. Mr. Robinson's performance Is one ot genuine hlstrldnlc stature and he-.gets effective aid fronvBebe Daniels as his bride of silver-king days and from Alleen MacMahon • as the discarded wife. • "STILL" BLAST FATAL TACOMA, Jan. 3.
