Betty Compson is starred in "Th Lady Refuses" which will ope Wednesday at the Cecil theater. A last she has a role worthy of he greatest histrionic powers, and plot, a supporting cast and a pro duction of high merit. "The Laa Refuses" combines most every essential quality of fine, thoroly satisfying screen entertainment .-with some outstanding features that make it unforgettable, according to critics. The story, written by Robert Milton and Guy Bolton and adapted by Wallace Smith, who also wrote the dialog, packs a truly powerful dramatic punch, enhanced by an air of utter verity. The characters are so human the spectator ia aware, of having met them, yet so original they are refreshing. Consider, for example,' the fact that both heroine and vUlainess of the picture arc "vamps!" Novel, isn't it, to find the handsome hero, narrow, aomew.hat. vain, conceited and weak?-To have his 'son back to him from another adventuress? Those are only a few highlights of the plot, which has comedy as well as pathos, physical thrills and plenty of touches of the risque as well as tense drama. "Unfaithful," written by the poplar playwright, John van Druten, tarring Ruth Chatterton, comes to he Palace theater for three days, tarting Wednesday. This amazing story of a woman forced to choose between'love and reputation, takes every, advantage of Chatterton s blazing genius to put across an emotional shock-punch such as even Chatterton has seldom equalled. "Unfaithful," tile story, was written especially for Chatterton by John van Dcuten,'the EngUsh p ay- wright whcse "Young Woodley won him fame and a first prize on the New York stage. Into the story Van Druten has injected an actioa series of climaxes, worthy of Chat terton's power. As tho centerpiece of a brilliant society whirl, Ruth Chatterton is seen, in a glamorous setting, in gorgeous clothes, a woman, madly in love with the hero-husband fate has eiven her, assured in her position. All the more surprising is the transformation one startling .Incident works in this beautiful heroine. Disillusioned in love, with her ideals smashed, she is helpless to free herself of the fetters of a marriage which has become intolerable. Then as the scandal-daring and reckles_s woman of the world, Chatterton truly reveals her unequalled power of portrayal. Rash living, foolish- loving this aristocratic girl touches the heights and depths of a thrill- mad society. "Mothers Cry," which is to open Wednesday at the Strand theater is Firs National's screen version of Helen Grace Carlisle's novel of the game name. With rare discretion Director Hobart Henley has chosen to reproduce the vividness of the novel exactly as written in the book. All the pathos, and dramatic poignancy of Miss Carlisle's story are faithfully recorded in the celluloid adaptation, it is claimed. .The story deals with a mother's love and self- sacrifice for her children. It typifies the American home. All the/ grief and heartbreak of a mother defending her "bad boy" against the world is seen. Nor are the lighter .moments neglected. Henley ; has inserted little realistic touches of home life, .which are so dear to every mother's heart. Dorothy Peterson, who plays the part of "Mary," the mother, gives a splendid interpretation of the hardworking woman, whose only thot is for her children. Miss Petersons many successful years on the dramatic stage show up well in her flaw less technique and she is very capably supported by David Manners. Helen Chandler, Edward Woods, Evelyn Knapp and Pat O'Malley Immortalizing the unswerving faith and courage of all American railroad men, Radio Pictures' "Dan- ger Lights," first greatest railroad melodrama of", the talkies is showing at the Iowa theater Tuesday and Wednesday. It is a stirring tribute to the stout hearts who keep the wheels moving. With Louis Wol- heim as the two-fisted, hard-swear-_ ing, roaring division boss whose indomitable strength holds the rails fast; Robert Armstrong as the ace engineer whose love for the railroad transcends his selfishness, and Jean Arthur as the railroad-bred beauty whose charm fires these Iron men to death grips, "Danger Lights" is truly the song of the rails dramatized. Railroad men will appreciate the countless authentic touches of ·'Danger Lights" which was filmed over the right-of-way of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific road, the cast covering more than 30,000 miles before the film was completed.
