MARCH 14 1934 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE FIVE WILL ROGERS IN "DAVID MM" Humorist-Philosopher in Ideal Role as Shrewd Horse Trader. "David Harum," Fox f Urn's latest release starring Will Rogers, is scheduled to begin a four day engagement Saturday at the Cecil theater. T^tiis picture, according to film officials, was produced in re- spcaise to the numerous letters received by the humorist-philosopher urging him to play this role. Its typical American theme deals ·with a shrewd horse trader. Because of the coldness with which he barters, and his uncanny method of outwitting people in business dealings, his reputation is none too good in the small town in which he lives. A young man who has come to work in the bank owned by the horse trader, learns that his employer really has a soft heart, and that his hardness is only for those who deal unfairly. The boy has fallen in love with a wealthy girl, but hesitates to propose marriage because 1 of his poor financial stand- The fcorse trader, who is interested in tile boy, tries to help the romance along, but gets nowhere. When the young girl comes to h.ra and requests him to enter her horse in a forthcoming race, he advises the boy to place all his savings on the horse. ., . The hilarious method by which the horse trader brings the horse home a winner is said to bring the film to a happy and amusing conclusion. , ,,..,, The large cast in support o£ Will Rogers displays an array of impressive names that include Louise Dresser, Evelyn Venable, Kent Taylor, Stepin Fetchit and Noah Beery. James Cruze directed from Walter Wood's screen play, which was adapted from the novel by- Edward Noyes Westcott. TESTIMONYfilVEN IN DAMAGE CASE Plaintiff Part of Action Complete in Local Trial.
