Ko mutter'.what character ho may be portraying on the screen, Wamor i Baxter possesses the rare faculty of walking right Into the heart of hto role. He is one of the few mnle stars ' -who quu, seemingly without effort, adapt his mental outlook to that of tlie character ho Is delineating. "An actor may feel and live the role he Is playing before the camera," says this popular player, "but It Is Imperative that he come out of character immediately the ucene Is finished. "Unless he has the capacity for returning to his normal self, he Is liliely to develop temperament nm possibly a nervous breakdown mnj follow," ', "When asked what he Intends to flo When lie Is done with pictures, Baxter dlfl not hesitnto In MB reply. "I Have It all figured out," he said "I'm going to my camp In the Sal Jacinlc mountains for a long rust then t shall start out and see tni •world. I love travel, but have en joyed little chance to, get far from Hollywood since I began In motion pictures." •Baxter's latest motion picture ap pearance is In "Six. Hours to Live,' the now Fox drama with John Bole and Miriam Jordan, now showing a the California theater, along wit! John Barrymore In "A Bill of Divorce nsent." ' , OPENS AT FOX TODAY S OMETIMES It is a pleasure to sit down ut your typewriter and dash off a criticism of a« picture because the words fiilrly leap at you, clamoring to be written! This Is true when one undertakes •writing of "Thy Animal Kingdom," which opened tocluy at thn Fox theater. It IK always uu*y to write of a really good picture. This Is a good picture—grand, In fact! Its thcmo Is a bit, well—unconventional. Its hero makes thu discovery that the "other woman" In his life has more of the attributes of a wlfo than the wlfo herself, so what is he to do? Leslie Howard, Miss Harding ana Miss Loy- are perfectly cast In the three luadtiiK rules. William Oargan does uu unusually good portrayal as tile nx-p"H who' IH Howard's butler. Ho IH a uur«-flre laugh tit. every appearance. Others giving notable performances lire Nell Hamilton, Ilka Chase, benl Stengel,. Henry Stephen- sou and Dontild Dlllowuy. 4 « * ME HUSTON STARREDWREX "American Madness" Booked With Splendid Cast * for Two Days In "American Madness," Columbia has taken a daring and sensational theme, closest to everyone's heart today, and from It turned out an exciting melodrama, which deserves a high ranking In any list of the best pictures of this year—or any other year.- for that matter. "American Madness" Is now at the Rex theater. A powerful dramatic .characterization by that splendid actor, Walter Huston, as a courageous and human bank president, who fights vntinntly to protect the savings of his depositors and to hold the love of his young wife, Is the backbone of "American Madness." Huston's performance Is one of the finest he has yet brought to the screen, in the opinion of this reviewer —comparable In Its acting quality with his memorable portrayal of Abraham Lincoln. But It Is the fast-moving suspense, the feeling that here Is something very close to life going on before our eyes, the exciting spectacle of more than a thousand frpnzled persons struggling and trampling one another down, and the human problems In the background of the main characters, that make "American Madness" such a noteworthy offering. . Ruth Chatterton in "The Crash," Is ilso on the double program. - Dally Bargain «&£ Mitlnee.. ••»•» MIX TH t:\Tiii: Eveningi Balcony.. 25e 286.5 M.—KNX—1080 K. <$>- SONTINUOUS 2:30 TO 11100= TODAY AND TOMORROW I L»w or no law, llvtno things must love, that'* the way It U In "Th« I L»W or no taw, .
