' to THE BAKEBSFIELD CALIFORNIAN, THURSDAY, JANUARY 12, 193& oncin^ Amusement AIR MAII" Wll I "Cynara" Exceptional Film; mil niniL it ILL T-» * V m • i I Fill FINF Rll I Based on Love Triangle Story of Flying Heroes Ts Depicted by Splendid Cinema Plovers , The stnffe nnd motion pictures are two entirely different media of expression and should nbt lie compared, ITI the opinion of Ralph Bellamy, 28- Senr-old veteran of the footlights who recently came to Hollywood nnd made 10 pictures In his first year. Bellamy bclievos it Is unfair to speak of them both' In the same breath. Having spent 12 years of his young life on the stage, he should be qualified to speak with some weight oft the subject. "The stage and pictures differ essentially because of the personal contact with the audience In the one and the lack of It In the other," says Bellamy. "This Is where the sharp lino must be drawn, and this Is why it i« impossible to speak 'kf them as approaching the same thing. If a play were presented OIT a stage before a camera, the result would indeed be :i strange thing—unattractive, meaningless, dead." The personal contact la lacking. The camera makes up for this in an entirely different manner by means of cutting to closeups and other effects—but the entertainment vehicle Is a bird of an entirely different feather." ^"Alr Mall," which tella the ad- vtnturous story of the government niall fleet, is scheduled to open nn engagement tomorrow at the California with Pat O'Brien, Bellamy, Hopton, Slim Summerville, theater Kussell Gloria Stuart and Tallinn Bond in the featured roles. John Ford directed the spectacular film. • jOn the same program is "The Man From Arizona," starring Rex Bell, CJJara Bow's husband. Ending their runs today are John Barrymore in "A Bill of Divorcement" and Warner Baxter in "Six Hours to Live."

While the Ntnuo play seemed episodic and at times difficult to follow, the picture version has a splendid continuity and the flow of the drama is directed with superb ease by Ronald Colman as the erring husband who strays from tho path of a seven- year connubial faithfulness, and by Kay Francis as the charming wife who flntlH a peaceful domesticity and happiness rudely shattered. Philosophical Tenor Phyllis Uurry, u younger player on the screen, holds her own as the shop girl Doris lien, who bargains for a passing affair but "changes stakes" with tragedy resulting. The play Is wise and philosophical with lines that bring laughter. Most of the philosophic tld-blts are given to tho philandering* a;nd satyr-like .lolm Trlnu, who believes the domestic content of his barrister friend cannot be harmed by a casual affair, and who with Intrigue, brings the shop girl Into the life of Jim Warlock. Mr. Colman gives one of the finest performances of his career as the barrister whoso own seriousness and sincerity In emotion firings about tragedy. The beautiful Kuy Francis couples tho Colman performance with a like high artistry. It Is upon the wife that the meaning of the play hinges for the drama raises the question whether or not a wife should forgive. Other Players Henry Stephenson Is excellently cast as tho i satyivllke Trlng who tries to mend some of the trouble for which lit has been in part responsible and does effect a reconciliation for the Warlocks. Among other players In the cast are George KlrbV as Mr. Boots, Viva Tattersall as Mllly Miles, the girl friend of the unfortunate Doris. The play has the knowing direction of King Vldor and is adapted from the play by IT. M. Harwood and Robert Uoro-Brown by Frances Marlon and Lynn Starling. Week Days Matinees...

RONALD COLMAN FRANCIS Andy Clyde Comedy News and Review OP EXCITING PICTURE Through arrangement with Captain F. !•:. Kleiiifchmidt, American war correspondent, Elmer Clifton presents an illuminating and extremely exciting motion picture entitled "War Debts-" at Fox theater today and tomorrow. An intelligent dialogue discourse on America's position In the matter of war debts forms -the background idea if tho picture, and while this is told, the cause of the huge financial crisis of today Is unfolded. War, the cost of armaments, airplanes, submarines, the terrific expense attached to every battle is emphasized. Captain Kleinschmidt, who secured these pictures, passed two years with the Austro-Germari forces on three fronts. He was at the vanguard of the armies that made the terrific drive against Russia from the Carpathian mountains across Poland into Russia from Tarnow over Prsemysl, I^emberg, Warsaw to Brest-Lltovsk.

Dean's ills A Diuretic '«[the Kidnw/s PICKEDBY VOTE 'Grand Hotel" Is Selected for First Place by Cinema Critics In the biggest vote of its kind to date, "Grand Hotel" heads the list of the ten best pictures of 1932 as picked by the country's leading film critics and editors in the eleventh annual poll conducted by T/he Film Dally. The other nine, in the order of votes received, are "The Champ," "Arrowsmlth." "Smilin 1 Through," "The Guardsman," "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," "Emma," "Bill of Divorcement," "Back Street" and "Scarface." Five new records were established in the 1932 poll. Total number of critics voting was 368, against the previous high of 340 in 1931. "Grand Hotel's" total of 2!)G votes was a new record for a single picture, the previous top having been scored in 1931 by "Cimarron" with 273 votes. The lead attained by the first picture In the list over the picture that follows it also was by the biggest ma'rgin yet scored by a winner, and for the first time every film In the winning list had a vote of 135 or more, while a picture with 117 votes could not get Into the first ten. Pictures listed In the poll were those released In the fiscal year to November 1, 1932. In the case of a few productions which were expected to', but did not, receive widespread release up to this deadline, tho number of votes accorded them Is not a fair indication of where they stand In this poll. / A few critics also voted for pictures not generally shown before November 1 and therefore not Included in the eligible list. Such votes obviously are lost in the present poll, but another opportunity to nominate these films will be afforded in the 1933 vote. To End a Cough In a Hurry, Mix Thjsrt Home 8tWM$2. No Cooking!
