At Mason City's THEATERS Douglas Fairbanks has given the mblic something: new In "Reaching?or the Moon," hia new picture for United Artists, directed by Edmund oulding, who Is called the most versatile man In Hollywood. The modern comedy-drama conies to the Palace theater Saturday. Supported jy a cast of noted stage and screen personalities, several of them stars ·n their own right, Fairbanks has put aside his spear and jerkin for a collar and fountain pen. He portrays a sensationally successful young stock broker who cuts a swath both in the financial and love markets. As the leading feminin. interest In his life there is Bebo Daniels, a fit-screen mate for tha dynamic Doug, having beauty, courage, and a splendid sense of drama Jack Mulhall, young star with the experience of a veteran, is promln ently cast as the star's best friend and confident. Edward Everett Hor ton, who has enjoyed starring hon ors on both stage and screen fo years, has an outstanding comedy part, as Fairbanks' valet. Norma Shearer lg starred In "Strangers May Kiss," which wll open Saturday at the Cecil theate as her latest Metro-Goldwyn-Hayo offering. This picture marks the re turn to the screen of the dellghtfu itar after an-absence of more than ix months. It is of unusual Interest iccause it again has her as the eroine of a best-selling novel from he pen of Ursula Parrott, popular author, whose first book provided iie story for "The Divorcee." This s the talkie in which Miss Shearer, won the 1930 award of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences "for the outstanding performance of the year. The new roll s an even, more daring one than that of the previous picture and the characterization is one of glamour and smart sophistication, Miss Shearer's best forte on the talking screen. Recounting In a. thrilling: manner the allied fight against the submarine menace, and combining this with a unique romance between an American naval commander and a German secret service agent, "The Seas Beneath," Fox movietone drama coming to the Strand theater Saturday reveals many hitherto un- filmed secrets of the U-boat struggle. The story, written by a former naval officer and directed by John Ford with the co-operation of the United States navy, revolves around the activities of a noted German submarine, the U-172, and the efforts of two American ships to capture it. One of these vessels, a. big schooner, is equipped as a "Q-ship" or "mystery ship," with a big gun concealed under a false deck-house. The other is an American submarine, escorting the schooner and maintaining telephone communica- tion with her thru a long cable. The efforts of the _German spy, a woman, almost capture the American vessels and the heart of their commander. "Big Money," a new Pathe dramatic talker brings together again that outstanding team with many successes to their credit on stage and screen--James Gleasou and Robert Armstrong. These clever comedians of "Is Zat So" and "Oh Yeah" fame are particularly well cast In "Big Money." Armstrong portrays the role of a high powered gambler and Gleason Is one of his henchmen.
