It is a gay, romantic, venturous slory in which the tension is frequently relieved by comedy. Four stage shows will be presented each day. New York and other metropolitan centers, the new picture weaves into its plot themes from three major news events of the year. They are the "Policy Racket," the Morro Castle fire and the front page activities of federal "G" men. "Escape From Devil's Island," from a story written by Fred De Gresac, tells the ironic tale of two men in love with the same girl who escape from the notorious tropical prison. Victor Jory, Norman Fostet and Florence Rice have leading roles. The fictitious town in which the story of "His Family Tree." playing Wednesday only at the State, is set is called Central City, Iowa, in the picture. * * * "Alary Burns, Fugitive," true-to- life gangster picture, introduces Alan Baxter to film fans, and Alan if his performance in the leading role of this picture is any indication is really a superb actor; Sylvia Sidney has the principal feminine role opposite Melvyn Douglas, while in support are such stars as Brian Donlevy, Pert Helton and Wallace Ford. On the same program, Wednesday and Thursday a.t the Strand, is "Metropolitan," Lawrence Tibbett's most recent film musical. Go to Chicago. GRAFTON--Otto Braun.
