An encyclopedia offers the information that until 1890 the headquarters of the detective department of the London metropolitan police was housed in a "building which from the tenth to the twelfth century had lodged visiting Scottish kings and ambassadors. Of the vanished pomp and glory there remained only the name Scotland Yard. In 1890 the metropolitan police, including the detective department, moved into an imposing group of buildings on the Thames embankment, the new headquarters being christened New Scotland Yard. However, the popular connotation of the term Scotland Yard has come to be the name of one of the most remarkable organizations of detectives in the world. Such is the story of one of the component features of "Mystery of Mr. X," which plays through Friday at the Cecil theater. Lewis Stone has the role of a Scotland Yard commissioner. The Cecil management also announced that "Funny Bunnies," a Walt Disney Silly Symphony portraying the Easter bunnies preparing their supplies for distribution, will also continue through Friday. This technicolor cartoon compares favorably with "The Three Little Pigs." * Â« Â« SPENCER TRACY WITH MADGE EVANS. "The Show-off," starring Spencer Tracy with Madge Evans, is one of title has a direct reference to the story. Should provide interesting entertainment with good acting. The squabbling members of the Lowe- McLaglen team are cast as rival deep sea divers in "No More Women." These pictures began a three day engagement Wednesday at the Palace. * * * Faul Muni, star of "The World Changes" which starred a two day run Wednesday at the Iowa theater, is supported in a fine performance by a better than average cast headed by Mary Aslor and Aline Mac- Mabon. A good picture with an historical background. * * * Two of the best sequences in the Marx brothers' "Duck Soup" show all four of them in nightshirts and nightcaps apparently confusing themselves as well as others, and, secondly, a mimic war which closes the picture. This film ends its run Thursday night at the Strand. * * * NEW STAR IN NEXT CECIL FILM "As the Earth Turns," picturiza- tion of the novel by that name by Gladys Hasty Carroll which begins a four day engagement Saturday at the Cecil, brings to movie fans a new star in Donald Woods, 26 year old six footer recruited last summer from a stock company. Jean Muir, who plays opposite him in this picture, is a comparative veteran from the standpoint 0' service, although she has been ii the films only about a year herself * * # "Six of a Kind" would be a, rathe good hand to hold and should be jus as good a comedy. Charlie Ruggles Mary Boland, W. C. Fields, Alison Skipworth, and Burns Allen hea the cast. It comes to the Palace fo four days starting Saturday on th same bill with "The Crosby Case." * * * George O'Brien and Irene Bentlcy top the cast of "Frontier Marshal" which is the week-end attraction at the Strand.
