While much pitiful humnn misery Is depleted In "Hell's Highway," one henrs thnt two themes of great tenderness run like threads of beauty through the story. One deals with the love of Duke Kills for his brother; the other with the love of the brother, Johnnie Ellis, for a girl. "WiiBhlngton Merry-Go-nound," Columbia's widely heralded political blast, is also playing today and tomorrow at the California theater. James Cruze directed the picture which features Lee Tracy und Constance Cummlngs In tho lending roles. The story shows Tracy as a newly elected member of Congress who goes to Washington with a load of high and mighty Ideas and ideals. What he encounters there nnd what he does about it is what makes "Washington Merry Go-Round" one of the most talked about films In recent years. Alan Dlnehart, Walter Connolly, Arthur Vlnlon, Prank Sheridan and Arthur Hoyt have Important supporting roles.

STAR AT CALIFORNIA Irving Thalberg 111 but Not in Danger (Associated Press Lvaied Wire) LOS ANGELES, Jan, 9.—The Influenza epidemic which has been on d rampage In the film colony for the past soveral weeks today listed Irving Thalberg, jretro-Goldwyn-JMuyor studio executive, among Its victims.' Although Tluilborg has been confined to bed for a week anil faces another week there, his condition was reported by studio representatives as not serious. ONE OF THOSE THINGS EL PASO, Texas, Jan. 9.—"It's Just one of those bits of hard luck wo all have," J^rry Hilton told his wife of one day from behind prison bars.

Those who viewed (ho local showing yoBterday tit the Fox theater, whore its run began, were deeply Impressed by file compelling nuance of tho drama which encroaches upon tho sordid but remains throughout a poignant exposition of tangled lives, humnn Indecision, desires, and conflicts. Strange Story The story concerns Nine Leeds, the girl whose lover Gordon Is destroyed In the war, and whoso life becomes a patchwork In mending her profound grief that belongs In the past. Her marriage to Sain Evans becomes a living deception when she has a child by another man .to circumvent the J3vans' family taint of Insanity. The sordid triangle continues through the strange Interlude of 'dally living over a period of years, and the husband, protected from the truth, Is the only one attaining happiness, n measure nf which also comes to Charlie Marsden, the life-long friend, who completes tho cycle of Nina's life. Fine Acting - Nornm Shearer leaves Behind her some of her lately acqulr'edX superfl- claltles, and regains a great measure of sincerity • through her . portrayal which Is a full-length portrait, Nina 30lng depicted In girlhood, womanhood and old age. Clark Gable Is less effective, his make-up being unfortunate In latter scenes, but -he gives a workmanlike performance. Ralph Morgan, who essayed the role of Charlie Marsden, tho timid and acridly philosophical novelist, on the stage, produces tho finest acting. Alexander Klrkland as the weak and later self-satisfied husband, Is at times ineffectual. 'Other players Include the veteran May Rqbson as Mrs. Evans; Maureen O'Sulllvari as Madelino, who becomes the bride of Gordon, the son, enacted by- -Robert Young; Henry B. Walthall as Professor Leeds, and Tad Alexander as Gordon, the child, who does a couple of remarkable scenes. Technique Impells The picture Is compiling- and will repay the Interest of even the most casual motion picture goers. -While O'Neill admirers familiar with the drama will find lines omitted, and tho drama Idealized and even sentiment sentimentalized to some extent, the force of the O'Neill conception remains intuct. •' ' . The echbhi^ 'of HliouiSht against the spoken word Is a forceful medium 'that will probably be adopted to greater extent In talking picture dramas despite tho burlesque that- the O'Neill play seems . to have inspired. The technical gestures In "Strange Interlude" are a Ifttle overemphasized for whenever a "thought" Is introduced, seemingly, the entire action stops while it is projected. This is due to too many close-ups and curtailment of. action- evidently dictated by a director too conscientious In making clear the cleavage of thought anc word. DANCER DORIS BOOTH, PRINCE MARRY •.(United I'retii tented Wire) HOLLYWOOD, Jan. 9—Doris Booth, ndwn, professionally as Xyesha, orl- ntal dancer, and Satlsh .
