Robinson, Bcbc nml Aline MacMahon, Is something dramatically new In the line of talking pictutVH. It's the kind of distinctly American story that held tho undivided-intercut of a large preview audience. • It is a combination of epoch-making historical events and the part that unrealizing men and women played In those fascinating incidents. It Is expertly directed, superbly acted, with Bdward O. Robinson giving what Is undoubtedly the best performance in his career, and with Aline MacMahon and Belie Daniels contributing touches of human interest and glamour that wins the favor of every one. It is both highly dramatic and whimsically comli- and through It all runs a thread of exciting suspense. Taking the days when the country was looking for gold, In the Rockies, when Denver was St. Charles, and before the great silver strike was made at I.eadville, It pictures the spectacular rrention of sudden fortunes, when poor miners became millionaires almost over night. Against it all is the character of Robinson, first a prospector, always searching for the wlll-o'-the-whlsp, always falling, but never becoming discouraged. There is plenty of en- .tertalnment of all kinds In this chapter of one of the most Important periods of American history-, the thrilling story of western development. The story of (Haw) Tabor, a man of ani- bftlons, Is packed with romance, drama and whimsical comedy. • « e» Vidor, Wife Settle Property Quarrel tUnited Press Leased Wire) NOTED STAR APPEARING ON NILE SCREEN TONIGHT MARY ASTOR STARRED ON RIALTO U1FORL Mary Astor, who recently became the mother of a girl, returns to the screen in a featured role in "Those We Love," a production based on the stage play by S.
