SPECIAL LATE SHOW SATURDAY AT 10 P. M. nerjacketed opera star; toe next a snarling gangster with itching trigger finger and a streak of cowardice--such is the professional life of Cesar Romero, genteel young Hollywood star who. has one of the principal roles .in. "Show Them No Mercy," starting Saturday at the Palace with the comedy, "Don't Get Personal." And Mr. Romero's talents are such that he takes these radical changes in full stride and manages to be thoroughly convincing in any type of role. In the picture before this one, Romero was the friend of Lawrence Tibbett in "Metropolitan." In "Show Them No Mercy" Romero is the brains of a vicious mob, rolling in power which is backed up by machine guns. Sally Eilers and James Dunn, a familiar team, hook up with the melodious Pinky Tomlin in "Don't Get Personal," a combination that results in plenty of fun and music. * * * "HI Gnucho," playing with "The; Man Who Reclaimed His Head," should be good if only for the cast. Rod LaRocque and Steffi Duna have the leading roles. On the same bill, through Saturday at the Strand, Claude Rains, who has had quite a bit of trouble with his head and visibility and one thing or another ever since he entered pictures, is, as you probably guessed, the man who gets his head back.
