Ter- nune, with the following cast: who ain't pay off the mortsaM holder because the week's proceeds, $10000, ii stolen. It Ii Croucho who remembers the rich Mrs. Dukcsbury, who hai disowned her nephew because he has so forgotten his social standing as to get mixed up with a circus. To my mind this is one of the funniest Marx pictures of all time. 'Babes in Arms' An M-G-M picture, directed by RerkeUv, produced by Arthur Freed, screen play by Jack McGooan and Kay Van Riper, based on the play by Richard Rodgera and Lorena Hart; aonga and I ilea by Richard Rodgera and Lorena Hart, Na-do Herb Brown and Arthur Freed, Harold Arlen and E. Y. Harburg; musical adaptation by Roger Kdens, munieal direction by George Stoll, orchestral arrangermtita by Leo Arnaud and George Raasman, set decorations by Edwin B. Willis, with the ful. lowing cast: Attorney Loopholi , Antonio Punchy ' Jeff Wil,n .... Julie Rnndall ... 1'niTlms Paulina ' M;..

They're in their best form, which means that you're a rock-ribbed, anti-Marxian if you can keep a dead pan while these clowns are on the loose. j Groucho plays the part of a law-yer with dubious legal talents. At-- torney Loophole, who is hired to ; pull a circus out of the hole. Mar-i garet Dumont, who has suffered ? mauling by the Marxes in many a 1 film with these zanies, is the very rich Mrs. Dukesbury in the clutches ' of Attorney Loophole, who is en-' tranced by her pocketbook. Groucho, to my mind, is never funnier than t.when he's baiting Miss Dumont. He has some good gags, too, several which are, to coin a phrase, sidesplitting. On the circus lot is Chico, gen- eral handy man. And what would a Marx picture be without that eloquent index finger of Chico's i trip"'ng over the piano keys? He J do rs ttie "Beer Barrel Polka," those 4 fin" "'s of his funnier than all his , lin-" rjut together. ? An ' ''i;n there':; Harpo (nothing in'. T:'-in getting around to him i lr.-.i. ' "''jo doesn't chase a single f b' '.'.it who carries around a fkjv!? nrops department under his coa., pirys tne narp ana, as iney say in iSotball language, is in on every play. You can take your choice between Harpo riding an ostrich or Harpo assisting the strong man in his act as the funnier. I'm glad I don't have to decide. - Romantic team in this Marx madness is Kenny Baker and Florence Rice. Kenny is owner of the circus Mickey Moran Patay Barton , Joe Moran , , . . Judge Black ., Rosalie K.WX , Home Moran Molly Moran . Don Rrire .... Jeff Steele ... Madox ... Mickey Rooney .. ., Judy Garland Charles Winnlnger Guy Kibbee June Pri-wacr Gract Hayea Betty Jaynes . Douglas MrPhail Rand Brooki Henry Hull Perhaps the youngest romantic team in Hollywood today, provided Sandy (the girl who plays a boy) hasn't a beau yet, is Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney and the combination is so pleasing in "Babes in Arms" that we're willing to name them as our No. 1 screen lovers. The picture, which opened Friday at the Paramount theater here, demonstrates that Mickey Rooney is growing up, not necessarily so much physically, but as an actor. The coltish youngster still waves his arms and shouts and mugs all over the lot, but at times he shows signs of becoming a capable actor. It's about time. Judy Garland, the attractive kid singer who plays opposite Rooney, turns in an excellent job both as a singer and and actress. She's still miles ahead of Rooney, which means that we think she is mighty good. The film is pure froth, unless you have a great pity for old-time vaudeville players who haven't been able to keep up with the times. That's the situation for Mickey's parents and Judy's parents. They live in a little colony of ex-vaudeville players and their kids run wild. While the old folks are away taking another stab at vaudeville, a woman of the community attempts to get the score or so of youngsters sent to an institution. Mickey talks the judge into leaving them alone and in the meantime stages his own kid show with a silly ex-baby star playing the leading role because she has the $240 to finance the production. Judy and the ex -infant heart-breaker fuss over Mickey but the star is taken away from the show by her father and a rain ruins the production. But a Broadway producer likes the effort and finances a legitimate production. It's good entertainment, even if the producers do attempt to put the show over with hokum disguised as Americanism. The songs generally are catchy and Miss Garland knows how to sing. Equally impressive were two other singers, Betty Jayness, who knows how to sell a song, and Douglas McPhail, who has an excellent voice. The film is based on a Broadway show of the same name which openod at the Shubert theater April 14, 1937. and ran for 289 performances Included in the Paramount's bill is the latest issue of March of Time, concerning the American farmer. The film blames World War No. 1 with the present plight of the farmer because he planted too many acres, many of them marginal, in order to cash in on high war prices. The film shows the result low prices, floods and dust storms, and shows how various agencies and groups are attempting to put the farmer on his feet again. R. F. Louis Novy, local Interstate manager, announced Friday that Edward Everett Horton, stage and screen comedian, will play the Paramount in February in the stage show, "Springtime for Henry." This is the fourth roadshow of the season for Austin. Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne are coming in December in 'The Taming of the Shrew," and two musicals, "Leave It to Me," with Sophie Tucker and William Gaxton, and "I Married An Angel" with Dennis King are booked.
