Hint, Mlchlj.n Evelyn Laye, EngUsh light opera "One HeaJvenly .Uight," an original romantic, comedy by the celebrated novelist, Louis. .Bro'm- field, is now. at the Palace th'eater. The scene of'the dramatic love story is laid in Budapest, where Pritzi, the darling of cabaret patrons in the night life of the city, hag, thru her scandalous behavior, incurred the censure of the Jaw, and Js banished for six months. Lilli, a flower girl, worships Fritzi, and is easily Induced by the singer to accept the exile in her stead. How this lea'ds Lllli to the count's castle, and the results of the discovery of the deception is told,In frolicsome action, witty dialog, and tuneful song. Colorful costumes, and a large cast of citizensj peasants, soldiers, swells and police, and the atmosphere of both castle "and cabaret are presented .-' in a · typically -lavish s Goldwyn production. Evelyn. Lay e. has the role of Lilli, the heroine; the other half of the love action being en^ trusted to the capable John' Boles, who is heard to advantage in a number of selections. Leon Errol, famous stage and'screen comedian! h'as"lines" and situations worthy of his great talents as a popular jeg- ter, while Lilyan Tashman, as Fritzi, gives a brilliant performance. ~°-- Nearly, a thousand extras were employed for spectacular scenes in "New Moon," pretentious co-starring vehicle for Lawrence Tibbett and Grace Moore, which opened a three-day, engagement Wednesday at the Cecil. The picture was adapted from the Ne* York stage success which ran for more than a year at the Imperial, theater. Despite the oft heard contention that large groups of extras are difficult to handle in a production with music, Jack Coriway, the director, contrived to depict armies jn battle; trained his cameras and microphones on hundreds of dancers in a huge palace ballroom" and in particular qutdid . himself in a vivid scene in which Tibbett rides and sings at the head of 250 cavalrymen who form a rousing male .chorus Settings were equally elaborate. The most unusual is that of a' complete Russian steamer, said to be one of the largest sets ever built at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Another is a replica of an isolated fort in Turkestan, peopled by a regiment of soldiers. The story is a romantic drama of love, adventure and intrigue with music woven in as integral details ot the situations themselves. The original.. Sigmund Romberg songs from the stage production were retained including the memorable "Lover Come Back to Me, and additional,music by Herbert Stothart and others was Interpolated.
