Sherwood's stag-e success "The Queen's -Husband' now at the Cecil theater. "It presents another side of Sherman's talent, hitherto undisclosed on the screen." says Roscoe. "In 'He Knew Women' Sherman was a hit as a-suave, polished man who knew his women and profited thereby! In 'Lawful Larceny' with Bebe Daniels, he was a polished, clever and rather fascinating thief! In 'The Pay Off he was a brilliant, cultured gang leader. But in "The Royal Bed' he ia humanized,. possessed of the ordinary human heart. He' portrays a lovable king- of a mythical kingdom, a henpecked husband of a domineering- queen." -o- ' ! Fast-stepping-, up-to-Sie-minute, modern as tomorrow's headlines. "Fast and Loose," now playing at the Strand theater, is a new angle on present-day youth, its Irxu'ghin-- grayety, its scorn of conventions, its freedom and constant joy. And a great cast of moderns portray the lively characters in the Avcry Hopwood . play,' which made a tremendous hit on Broadway last season Fast and Loose" is taken from the play "The Best People," a laugh and love drama of-middle-aged cons'erv- atism versus youthful light-footed- ness. Long Island is the setting- There the socially established family, represented by Ftank Morgan Winifred Harris, Herbert Yost, Miriam Hopkins and Henry W'a-'aworth,- carries on the battle of r-aste. The two youngsters, Miss Miriam Hopkins and Wadsworth, shock their elders immeasurably by becoming involved in affairs of the heart, the former with the family chauffeur, the latter with a pretty chorus ^irl. --O-T George Bancroft iH rated as one of the big- box office names in present- day talkies. He has gained his reputation thru his impressive, colorful characterization of he-men holes in such pictures as "Underworld," "Ladies Love Brutes," "Thunderbolt," "The Mighty," "The Wolf of Wall Street,", and "Derelict." In "Scandal Sheet" now pjaying at the Palace theater, he is presented in the role of a person of social prominence, of wealth, of position. At his daily grind in his job as managing editor, of a ^abloid "scandal sheet" he la brutal, fierce, humorless and uncompromising. In his home life he is just the opposite--Â· a loving husband, kind and good to his charming wife. But it Is the reign of terror he creates in his business life which turns her against him. Kay Francis, who plays the role of Bancroft's wife, is one of th'e many well-known Broadway stars who has recently achieved fame in celluloid. She made her debut In "Gentlemen of the Press" with Walter Huston over a year ago. "Ho Knew Women" will be prp sentecj for the last time Wednesday evening at the Iowa theater. It is a masterpiece of subtle comedy drama, a thoroly grown-up and splendidly enacted talking drama of modern manners. --o-A pistol shot, a wild huzza from 5,000 throats and the great land rush scene in Radio Pictures' "Cimarron" was under way. For days an army of men had been gathering n the rolling plains country near Bakersfield, Cat, focussing mind and effort on the preparation of a mile long front of ox teams, covered vagons and rigs of all descriptions 'or a simulation of the Oklahoma and rush of 1889. All morning they had waited for that starting pistol shot. Animals and men were tense with expectation. A bugle sounded, :hen came the roar of the pistol. There was hum of awakened life; a oud huzza of discordant notes shouted by men drunk with en- husiasm, and the sharp reports of bull whips that pricked the ears like singing bullets. "CImarron" will open a one-week engagement Saturday, Feb. 21, at the Cecil.
