HI. — Aulircy Kennedy, Independent movlo producer, believes Klorldn H better pluco for tho lnd«pemlt*nt motion picture producer than Hollywood. He announced that he will center his production plans of the future there. "hlnrida, which has most of the ad- vHnUiifos nf California," he snld, "has become, because of changed cundl- tlons, n more logical place for production of Independent pictures "It Is only eight, hours by plane from New York, the focal point of two or the most Important factors In pictures —financing and distribution. "I will hire all of my players In Now York, and hire them at a fraction of what Hollywood must pay them. My .Intention Is to make 24 pictures the first year and 52 pictures tho second year." Kennedy has been In motion picture work since IflOT, first with Universal and Inter with Goldwyn. and for the last several years has hcon an independent. Differing from the geuer«l plan of the Industry for distribution, Kennedy Is interested In "state rights" pictures, that Is the selling of pictures to one party In each state for thnt party to control distribution in the state. OWEN MOORE AND MAE WEST BOOKED AT FOX THEATER toxrm-ATitt CONTINUOUS 2:30 TO 11.00 : LAST TIMES TODAY = BIG DOUBLE BILL M AR AVIDST'S first starring picture, "She Done ITIm "Wrong," will he on display at the Fox theater tomorrow and Thursday. The picture was written by Miss West. "Hho Done Him Wrong" is a lusty, roaring melodrama nt the Howery—a hearty tale of tho notorious old avenuo when men are men and women are "on the mnke." Its saloons and Its politicians, Its honky-tonks and Its "dumps," furnish a background for the activities of the principal characters. Miss West Is cast as "Ijidy T/ou." n famous beer-hall entertainer with u deadly effect on unwary males. Her suitors flock around her, practically in swarms, but she deals with them In a matter-of-fact fashion. Those who can provide her with the diamonds which nre her weakness may enjoy her favors. Tho others?—too bad. Into this scene comes Cary Grant, apparently a mission worker without a diamond to his name. His appearance on tho scouo leads to a startling, highly dramatic climax, which puts Ijady 1,ou in his arms without tho customary tribute in gems. Miss West sings three songs during tho course, of the picture—the popular old ballad, "Frankle and Joiinnle," and two new songs, "A Man What Takes Ills Time" and "Haven't Got No Peace of Mind," which were written for her by Ralph Rainger, composer of "Moaning 1 TJOW," "Please," and other popular successes. In addition to Grant, Noah Beery, Owen Moore, David Trfindau and Gilbert Roland are In the' supporting cast.

By MARY KNIQHT United Pren Staff Correspondent PARIS, Jan. 31.—One Milng at a time,. Is Jeanotto MacDonald's doctrine for happiness when It comes to mixing a career with marriage, and the career comes first on her list. "You can't do two things at onco and do them well," she says. "I love Mr. Ritchie, and I hope we will be narrled' some day. I don't however, tnow of one happy marriage In Hollywood,'and I can't be a good wife while have my career. I don't mean I vitnt to keep house, wash dishes and raise ten children," she hastened to explain, "but I want to help my 1ms- >and, and I certainly can't, do that while I have a career of my own. It lust doesn't work." When asked what the prospective irldegroom thought of the arrange- nent, the vivacious movie heroine lastened to reply that "Mr. Ritchie (Robert Ritchie, her manager also) understands me perfectly. Of course, wo would like to get married tomorrow, but I don't think It Is the thing do Just yet, .not, at least, while I stick to my career." As soon as the popularity of the beautiful tlllan hnlred partner of Maurice Chevalier pictures began to wane, It will be time enough to call the preacher and decorate the church, she- said. Incidentally, she added with a very serious expression, "this rumor that there Is something be- ; tween Chevalier and myself beyond tho best of friendship Is absolutely untrue. I am not engaged to the I'Yench actor and I never have been In my life!" 'THE CONQUERORS" BOOKED SCENE FROM DRAMA COMING TO CALIFORNIA THEATER A 'THRILLING kaleidoscope of progress ofMnventlon provides tho an Interesting and colorful accompaniment to the intensely dramatic theme of Radio Pictures' "The Conquerors," oostarrlng Richard Dlx and Ann Harding, to be screened at the California theater starting tomorrow. This pageant of science and Imaginative skill shows the Introduction of the writing machine, the telephone, 'the submarine, the electric light, phonograph, trolly car, elevated railroad, wlroless, the coming of the first i railway train through the west nnd I other great milestones of advancing civilization. All of those are secondary to the major theme of "The Conquerors," which splashes on a vast canvas tho dramatic Btory of the nation's second battalion of pioneers, the men and women who followed the scouts and trappers Into the west to build the commercial frontier. Tho picture is a thrilling document of man's accomplishment and courage In times of adversity and stress. i Critics call it particularly timely because It treats of tho nation's consistent victories over recurrent periods of financial reversals.

Joan Blondell heads the large and Impressive supporting cast. Kate Smith has been heard by more people than any other entertainer on the air, but only a handful of people have seen her. Radio officials estimate that more than "5.000,000 members of this country's radio population has listened to the "Queen of the Air" at one time or another and that the great percentage of that number are her regular fans. But Miss Smith, n»w starring In Fannln Hurst's story "Hello, Everybody:" a Paramount picture, which ends Its run at the Fox theater today, has been seen by only limited audiences in nine eastern cities.

Far more secretive, far more interesting, are the men and methods of the world's six greatest organizations of secret police: tho United States secret service, Scotland Yard, the Northwest Mounted of Canada, Germany's and Austria's super-efficient bureaus, and the French Surete. From the records of some of these famous agencies was taken tho amazing case developed In RKO-Radlo Pictures, "Secrets of the French Police," also now playing at the Fox theater, with the lovely Gwill Andre featured In the cast. The picture Is based on material from two amazing documents: "Secrets of the Surete," by H. Ashton-Wolfe; and "The Lost Empress," by Samuel Ornltz.
