KENT TAYLOR OF NASHUA JtV TOP ROLE Kent Taylor who moved to Los Angeles from Nashua only a few years ago portrays his best role to date in "Death Takes a Holiday" as Evelyn Venable's husband-to-be. With Fredric March in the starring role, this picture, which began a three day engagement Wednesday at the Cecil, is a really great production and ranks with any of this year's releases. a, * * | Two good pictures compose the bill which plays through Friday at the Palace. While there is nothing startling in either of the plots, they are interesting and are portrayed by capable actors under efficient direction. "Looking for Trouble" stars Spencer Tracy and Jack Oakie with Constance Cummings in a story of telephone linemen and an ex-telephone lineman who directs his talent and knowledge to a wire tapping scheme. Ginger Rogers, Warren William and Mary Astor are the chief characters in "Upperwold," a three-cornered romance. Morley in a story which evolves a perfect crime. » * * "Elysla," authentic picture filmed in California's sunshine where many seek health and happiness, IB scheduled for a three day engagement starting Sunday at the Strand. On the same bill is Constance Cummings in "The Chanaing Deceiver." Make Plantings at Belmond. KANAWHA, May 9--W. J.

Baxter is appointed Secretary of Amusement in the president's cabinet in this story, and Miss Evans is his chief assistant. After a great deal of trouble they get the U. S. A. to sing its blues away.
