I At Mason City's iTHEATERS China,""wi'Cb'two American womeo ""*~"'"""~ "Fifty Million Frenchmen," which opened Saturday at the Palace, is a brilliant, natural color screen version of the play which captured Broadway last season. Many of the same people that appeared on the stage are seen in the picturization William Gaxton again portrays the role of Jack Forbes, the young American millionaire who wages with his two friends, Curamings and Baxter, that within two weeks he can woo and wed the pretty girl he has merely glimpsed but never met, anc all without a cent in his pocket. Helen Broderick again plays Violet, the strong-minded American tourist who throws so many monkey wrenches in the machinery. Lester Crawford, who plays Baxter, was also in the play. Cummlngs, the originator of the wager, himself mildly desirous of the pursued lady, is deftly played by John Haliday. The lady all the fuss is about is bewitchingly played by beautiful Claudia Dell. Nat Carr and Vera Gordon make much of their clever Jewish dialect as tourists in Paris. Carmelita Geraghty is good as an excitable mamselle, and Charles Judels is his Frenchiest as M. Per- nasse. But the bagful of monkeys is that outlandish team of clowns, Olsen and Johnson, who enact the pussyfooting- sleuths that pursue everybody, catch nobody, but cause tremendous laughter in the doing of it. ·--o-- The actor's actor--that's what they call Edward Everett Horton in Hollywood. Moviedom looks to "Eddie" Horton for recreation--and he gives it to them. His "little" theater has for several years been a fixture in the night life of the film city, and more celebrities than have ever been crowded into one picture, fill the seats of his popular playhouse of an evening-. Despite the strenuous job of appearing in star roles in the talkies--his latest being James Cruze's merry comedy "Once a Gentleman" now at the Strand theater. Horton appears nightly in bis own playhouse.. Horton leases the theater, engages the players, directs the performances, and usually appears himself in a leading role. Practically every player in Hollywood Is his friend, which explains the presence of famous stars on the screen in even minor roles of his stage hits. Among his most recent stage productions have been Shaw'a "Arms and the Man" and "Among the Married." In "Once a Gentleman" this expert comedian appears in the role of a valet, whose employer gives him a month's vacation in which to play gentleman. --o-The only convincing explanation of this winter's mildness ia that the wind ia tempered to the shorn Iamb --Kewanee Star-Courier.
