B ^ Silver Dollar" Is Record Early Days , Edward Excellent Robinson Silver WINS HONORS King; Now at Nile A UD vr»j By MAE SAUNOERS 3N r CES at the Nile then tor yestcrdny found "Silver Dollar," a thrilling drama with Edward O. Rob- irifion as the picturesque, swaggering, dynamic silver king dominating the ttcenea of early mining days of Colot * p *ado. . Robinson as Yates Martin is tho man whose wealth becomes fabulous, and the story is based on the biography of Hfcvr Tabor, one of Colorado*!* most colorful , figures. The story depicts Tales Martin first as a rough and ready prospector who through the urglngs of a conservative wife becomes a storekeeper In "Leadvllle, and through a stroke of luck, becomes owner of the greatest of tho silver mines.. Human interest, drama, nncl comedy t» interwoven into the story as the Silver King rises' to political prominence, easts off his wife of hard pan days, and marries a, beguiling blonde. Finally Crashes ; Tates ^Fartln becomes a senator; a president attends his wedding, and Washington U"astounded at the advent of such a figure l\i Its conserva- ,tlye. circles.

The I f - ^ L • ^™^^ latter scenes of the picture drag a IfUIe and the swiftly knit drama of t|*e earlier portion Is lost in what be- cpmes a merely biographical ending. ,*Robinflon gives a vital performance as the blatant, generous, and almost Incredible silver king of puerile ambit Ions. He makes all the grotes- qWrles of the role quite believable aiid enlists sympathy for the roistering hero. Despite Robinson's vivid portrayal Aline MacMahon, that versatile ac- ttess almost steals the picture from hjm as the plain-spoken Kansas wife who Is deserted. She is superb in Aline MacMahon, with Edward Q. Robinson (n "Stiver Dollar." the part. Bebo Daniels as the glamorous blonde Its a fine support also. Authentic -Background The scenes of the mining camp are worked out in authentic detail, rind the excitement of boom days when mUllonnlrea were created overnight Is injected Into the Hcones. There Is a splendid supporting cast, including such competent players us Joyna Howland, Dewltt .Jennings, RviBBell Stmptfoht Bmmett Corrlgan and many others.
