The picture, which opened a four-day engagement Saturday at the Palace theater, -is" called "Finn and Hattie." "Finn and Hattie" pictures the- amazing adventures of three Americans on their first trip to Europe, and is hailed as a new departure in talking picture ccraedy. The Haddocks are given a royal send-off as they leave their little home town, a send-off cut short by the sudden and unexpected departure of the train, under control of little Mitzi. From then on things happen, in New York, where the family is joined by Jackie Searl, the kid brother of "Tom Sawyer;" aboard the boat where Lilyan Tashman, the blond siren, appears as a princess to vamp Finn; in Paris, where Finn's whoopee-making and Mitzi's mischief-making get the whole family into trouble with the police and hotel managements. Erroll, who, with his famous "rubber" knee, made his first talking picture hit in "Only Saps Work," recently, was a star of Zieg-feld's "Sally" and "Louis the 14th," and, for years, toured' the world in vaudeville. --c-- Animals and machincrj- seem its far apart as the two poles--yet--it requires much the same turn of mind to train one successfully as it does to manipulate the other.
