Some may recognize the plot o "Stolen Holiday' as the m o v i e counterpart o the corrupt high finance episod' jwhich occurrec months ago in ance. althougl the movie-makers disclaim anj actual basis for this intriguing cinema. At any rate, it should prove in teresting if only because of the es tablished place in the cinemati world of the two leading charac ters. * * . * PALACE REVIEWS Large crowds greeted the return of Kay Francis and William Powell in "One Way Fas- sage" at the Palace theater over the week-end. This picture, which will run through Monday, except perhaps for a last year's gown or two, will meet the approval of the most modern movie sophisticates. With a great story of two lovers who face oncoming doom with such magnificence, these two do some superb acting. They portray the strange idyll of Joan Ames and Dan Har- dcsty, who, first glimpse each, other in a Hong Kong cafe antl later meet on a liner hound fur San Francisco, the first on the . brink of death from HI health and the other facing the gallows. And then--well, see the picture yourself for you'il like K. Also showing at the Palace is Joe Cook, comedian extraordinary, in Zane, Grey's "Arizona Mahoney," with the customary laughs, * * * George Arllss heads the cast ol :he romantic and political story, 'East Meets West," which begins Tuesday at the Palace. Arliss por- Irsys · the role of the Rajah ol Rungay in a tale which has to do with the struggle between east and west for power in the Indian country. On the same program is "Wanted: Jane Turner," an interesting and lively crime film. Lee Tracy makes his screen c o m e b a c k i n "Wanted: J.a n e Turner," w h i l e Gloria Stuart has t h e feminine lead. Tracy is c a s t as a postal inspector o n t h e trail of a gang responsible f o r the holdup of a mail truck and the death of its driver. v * * That conglomeration of fun, drama and entertainment is replete in "Banjo On My Knee," a tale of the shanty-boaters who live flown south, on the Mississippi river. Barbara Stan- wyck, Joel McCrca and Waller Brennan are three outstanding characters in an excellently balanced cast. "Banjo On 'My Knee" plays at Clear Lake's Lake theater Tuesday only.
