RAMON NOVARRO AND HELEN HAYES LUBITSCH FARCE BOOKED AT REX "Trouble in Paradise" Will Be Sunday Attraction; Strong Cast lirast Lubltsch's "Trouble in Para- disc," which is said to establish an entirely new technique for motion pictures, has been booked for the Rex theater on Sunday and Monday. Miriam Hopkins, Kay Francis, Herbert Marshall, Charlie Ruggles and Edward Everett Horton play leading roles in the picture, a witty farce adapted from the play by Laszlo Adalar, Viennese playwright. With easy good humor, the picture first shows the establishment of busl-. ness, social and emotional rapport between Miss Hopkins and Marsha)!, two super-super crooks who prey in suave fashion upon European sorl- ety. Then It follows them through their most exciting adventure—the bamboozling of Miss Francis, svelte Frenchwoman, who possesses more money than the Bank of France. It Is In this adventure that Marshall is almost tempted to turn from paths of wickedness Into respectability, for his victim displays charms to which he Is easily susceptible. The struggle between Miss Hopkins, on the one hand, and Miss Francis, on the other, for his affection, leads to a highly amusing climax. KERN—1200 K. G—Blng Crosby, ..Chesterfield. li:15—Ed C.
