In Its entire history, lm.s seldom produced a love story of such tenderness and such he- rolr beauty ILH the film . version of Ernest Hemingway's great novel, "A Farewell to Arms," which, with Helen Huyes and Gary Cooper In the lead- Ing roles, opens tomorrow at the Fox thJater. Made by the two men responsible for "Seventh Heaven," Frank Borzage and Benjamin Glnzcr, the film has adapted the quality of that other tender love story to the more epic proportions of the Hemingway story. ' Helen Hayes brings the whole of her rich gift for acting to the role of Catherine, emphasizing the tenderness and simplicity of the young British nurse. ' Catherine was real and bravo and beautiful as Hemingway conceived her; she is all of that and more us Helen Hayes Interprets her. Nor Is Gary Cooper In any way unworthy of tho big role of Lieutenant Henry. He rises to Its every requirement, and In an Intelligent und understanding performance, creates a character that will not be soon forgotten. Adulpho Menjou, us Uinalcll, "w^ar brother" of Lieutenant Henry, almost steals the show. J Mickey Mouse and Charlie Chase In their latest liiugh-provokers have a prominent place on tho program.
