fHEBAl EUGENE O'NEILL PLAYJMIRED "Strange Interlude" Comes to Fox Theater With Norma Shearer Starred A rare treat Is In store for movlo- goers starting tomorrow when "Strange . Interlude," plcturtisatlon of the sensational Eugene O'Neill Orama, opens nt the Kox theater wltli Norma Shearer-and Clark Gable In the principal roles.- This Is (ho play which ran for a year ntid u half on Broadway as presented by the . Theater Guild with I^ynn Konlanno In the rolb played on th« screen by Miss Shearer. The powerful O'Neill drama deals •with the tragedy of a woman who finds she cannot have children because of a streak of Insanity In her husband's family. Unwilling to rob her husband and herself of parental happiness, she hits upon a remarkable, ultra-modern plan for preserving their domestic tranqulllty, a device which Involves the love of two other men and which eventually brings all four characters Into the most difficult of dramatic complications. Not the least of the novelties In "Strange Interlude" IB the fact that It retains the much discussed spoken-, thoughts or "asides" of tho original play. To accomplish this "doublo dialogue" effect, two separate sound recordings were made as the picture was filmed. An outstanding cast supports Miss Shearer and Clark Oable In "Strange Interlude," Including tho well-known New York stage player, Alexander Klrkland, Ralph Morgan, who repeats the role he played In the original production; Robert Young, who recently scored In "The Wet Parade" and "New Morals for 'Old"; May Robson, remembered for her work as the bitter mother In "Lctty Lynton"; Maureen O'Sulllvan of "Tarzan" fame; Henry B. Walthall, Mary Alden and Tad Alexander. El Brendel Is a vital factor In the romance between' James Dunn and Boots Mallory In "Handle With Care," which closes today. STARRED IN O'NEILL PLAY "BACK STET" ML BE GRANADA FEATURE "Back Street," based on Fanny Hurst's famous story of the same name, comes to the Granada theater Sunday for a three-day run. Irene Dunn, star of "Clmarron," and John Boles, leading man in many film successes, have the principal roles. "Back Street" ran most of the summer i>,t the Carthay Circle theater In Los Angeles at roadshow prices and was seen by thousands dally. Although Miss Dunn jumped to Instant fame as a result of her work In - "Clmarron,", she rises to oven greater heights in "Back Street." She brlijgs to the role beauty, warmth, color dignity and all the admirable traits with which Miss Hurst endowed her character In the book. And In the role of the young bonk clerk who rises to fame as an International financier, bu never goes back on the sweetheart o his •youth, although It Is 'an illlcl love "In the eyes of the world, Mr Boles does the greatest work of his career. CLARK GABLE AND NORMA SHEARER AT FOX SUNDAY STAR ON RIALTO BILL Norma Shearer has turned her back on her screen past. In 'Smllln' Through," her latest production which will be shown for three days Blurting Sunday at the Rlalto theater. Mtsu Shearer has a role far removed from those which have taken her along the bypaths which lead away from convention. Miss Shearer's role In "Smllln' Through" Is frankly tinged with sentimental romance. It IB completely devoid of that sophistication which marked her characterizations In Strangers May Kiss," "-A Free Soul" and "Strange Interlude." In thus turning to wistful,romance, Miss Shearer sheds the "women of the world" character for the first tlnio since the neach blosBOrh fragrance of 'The Student Prince," In the old days of silent films. Sidney Franklin directed the picture. Others In the cast are O. P. Heggle, Ralph Forbes, Beryl Mercer, David Torrenco, Margaret Seddon, Leslie Howard and Forester Harvey. "No Living Witness," which comes to the Virginia theater Sunday, Is a mystery picture, but tho producers have not resorted to freak characters or other unconventional"" means to build up the mystery element of the picture. Tho story revolves around tho efforts of a blackmailing ring to extort money from a gold prospector who hao finally struck the precious metal in his old age. Accompanied by his daughter, he comes to a big city to negotiate tho sale of his mine to a syndicate. It la while he Is negotiating that ho attracts the attention of the gang. From here on the action is fust and furjous. , A galaxy of well-known players enact the major roles, including Gilbert Roland, best known as leading man for Norma Talmadge, North Beery, Barbara Kent, Carmel Myers.
