Carolan, 61 year old Buffton farmer fatally injured late yesterday when he was struck by a hayrack drawn by a runaway team. Six children and eight brothers and sisters survive. the RKO-Radio screen's play was adapted, Liara O'Flaherty, the novelist, created a truly amazing character. That character is Gypo Nolan, the primitive. Irish giant who is portrayed by Victor McLaglen and whose titantic downfall is the theme. Liam O'Flaherty has created out of Ireland's bitter revolution a quasi-fictional being who, stirred by desire, harrowed by fear, torn by remorse, exalted by illusions of grandeur, and haunted by superstition, provides for Victor McLaglon what that actor regards as the greatest role of his career. The characterization has the virility of the sergeant In "The Lost Patrol," yet it is much broader in its dramatic scope, because of the love element vividly combined in it. Playing through Thursday at the Palace with "The Informer" is "Dinky." starring Jackie Cooper. ROGKFOiPiGNIG TO BE JULY 21 25th Anniversary Will Be Celebrated by Holy Name Church.
