Not only the Handy classic, but an entire mixture o£ popular songs are interwoven in the story of the Mississippi, /a. modern yarn of a showboat on the father of waters. .Alaxine Sullivan sings the titular song, "Loch Lomond," "Dark Eyes," and "Kinda Lonesome;" Dorothy Lamour warbles, in Lamourvalous manner, "Blue Nightfall," "I Go for That," "Let's Dream in the Moonlight," *· -.and "Junior," all making for a ... . . . , , this a lasting memory, for the collection is decidedly above aver- most melodic concoction of entertainment. Lloyd Nolan, as the showboat age impresario, has the lead opposite i ' ~ Miss Lamour, while other worthy ' cast members are Jessie Ralph, as the sturdy old veteran of the river; Jerome Cowan, the typical Broadway producer; the King's Men, and Matty Mal- iieck's . o r ch - cstra. b o t h Dorothy Lamour P a u l Whiteman graduates; the Hall Johnson choir, Tito Guizar, Mary Parker, William Frawley and Clifi Nazarro, who spews forth a ribtick- AT THE PALACE Ends Tuesday Two lowans do the honors in the films at the Palace theater with Priscilla Lane featured in ·'Yes, My Darling Daughter" and Ronald Reagan in '"Secret Service of the Air."

ABBOTT Iowa State Teachers College tempt to cope with her modern daughter with grannie, who hasn't forgotten how it feels to cope with youth, looking on. Miss Lane is seen in the role of the daughter with Fay Bainter as the mother and May Robson as the grandmother. Others in the cast include Ian Hunter as the father, Roland Hall as Titus Jaywood, part of mother's past. Jeffery Lynn as Priscilla's young man, Gene- j vieve Tobin ns Aunt Connie--an excellent lineup as you can see. Smooth Cinema . . . In spite of obvious deletions in the film, intended to save the morals of the audience, no doubt, the story moves along smoothly and entertainingly.
