SIX MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 8 1934 At Mason City THEATERS ANN HABDING IS TRUE "GALLANT LADY" Ann Harding, more beautiful than ever, is truly a gallant lady in her leading role in the picture of that name which completes its run Friday at the Cecil. The entire film carries a convincing air which few productions are able to accomplish. One never has to apologize for the acting of CHve Brook, Otto Kruger, Tullio Canninati or Dickie Moore. * * * It Is amusing to newspaper people to view a motion picture endeavoring to depict phases of newspaper work in progress. Invariably the reporter is shown, notebook in hand, hat on aslouch and otherwise giving evidence of being a nonchalant tough guy. All down the line from the editor-in-chief to copy-chasers and composing room devils, the characterizing is of .the same type. In "Hi Nellie," an effort has been made to correct this quite erroneous impression arid show newspapermen and their work in. its true light. Paul Muni and Glenda Farrell enact leading roles. 'As a whole the picture is interestng and entertaining, based on a good story. May Robson gives an excellent performance in "You Can't Buy Everything,'-' which plays through Friday at the Palace on the same bill with "Hi Nellie." She is cast as a miserly financial genius whose sole ambitions are for her son's wealth and the poor health of a suitor who gave her the air when they both were-considerably younger. t t * CLEVER MYSTERY ON IOWA WEEK-END BILL - "The Ninth Guest," clever mystery involving eight guests at a penthouse party who are at the mercy of an invisible voice. Donald Cook and Genevieve Tobin head the cast, i* s * K one likes outdoor pictures featuring a man who looks the part of a hero, try "The Lone Star Ranger," story of the Texas border country written by Zane Grey. George O'Brien is the hero in the film, playing opposite Sue Carol. At the Strand Friday and Saturday. * C * Constance JJennttt, aljly supported by Fanchot Tone, Tullio Carmln- ati, Russ Columbo and the Boswell sisters, is starred in "Moulin Rouge," musical comedy production which begins a three day engagement Saturday at the Cecil. * * e "EVER SINCE EVE" PLUS FINE COMEDY. "Ever Since Eve," rather clever story of rich miners coming to view the bright lights and getting their fingers singed, has George O'Brien, Mary Brian and Herbert Mundin in the leading roles. On the same bill is a film that promises to be a comedy riot if the cast can be taken as any ndication: "The Meanest Gal in Town," with Zasu Pitts, Pert Kelon, El Brendel, Skeets Gallagher and James Gleason. These pictures compose the double bill which starts four day run Saturday at the Palace. Vill Rflgers, one of America's few, typically American institutions, plays a return engagement as "Mr. 3kitch" Sunday, Monday and Tuesday at the Strand. A worthwhile licture.

Plans for the organization of a state beef cattle committee to function in the event of congressional approval in adding the industry to the list of basis agricultural commodities was under consideration today. 'Yesterday ' delegates from 95 counties voted for the inclusion in a session which combed various angles in the cattle industry and its proposed production control program. On only one major subject was there sufficient divided opinion to warrant a roll call -- and delegates finally voted to approve reimbursement of feeders for losses sustained in connection with the government loan of 45 cents a bushel on corn. A proposal for a processing tax on beef cattle stirred up debate and no action was taken.
