Fleurette McCuaig la dance directress while Horace Smith and Bill Lord will conduct the THE WINNIPEG TRIBUNE PAGE 19 Looking Them Over By ALFRED E. McGINLEY IT Little Chickadee, the long awaited production co starring those veterans of stage and screen art, W. Fields and May West, Is now showing at the Metropolitan and may be written down as a typical West Field comedy, In which the leads engage In a nice bit of attempted scene stealing with honors about even.

The ebullient Fields and the curvaceous May, adept in every phase of screen chican ery, did not get along any too well while the picture was in the making. Each feared the other might put something over and In consequence the finished product sees both "on their toes" all the time in their fight for honors. The result is a most interesting duel, but pick your own winner. Our opinion is in favor of a dead heat. My Little Chickadee sees Fields as a phoney medicine peddler and May as a woman of the world who has already been eased out of one Western town and told not to come back.

The two meet, are married by Donald Meek, posing as a clergyman, and start life all over in another town. Fields is appointed sheriff and has a hectic time as long as he lasts. May is just May, no better, no worse. A hunt for a masked bandit, well played by Joseph Callilea and the usual Fieldian adventures round out a story which contains plenty of laughs plus the two stars at their best. An amusing screen laugh but not to be taken seriously.

William (Bill) Lovell, well known theatrical producer and promoter, and late of the John Holden Players, left this week for Killarney, where he will stage a show with local players for the Killarney Citizens band. Mr. Lovell will present a number of attrac tions in the smaller provincial town this spring and, as well, is directing the tour of the Hoffard Sisters Revue. These talented Win nipeg girls have an outstanding acrobatic and dancing act and have associated with them other artists to make up an eight act revue. They will be seen through the West and will also go to Eastern resorts, Including Muskoka lakes resorts.

Jimmy Fisher, well known In local amusement circles, has been booking acts over the Western fair circuits as a representative for Barnes A Carruthers, of New York. He reports that a good fair season is expected by all circuit towns. LEE Tracy will be starred, with Linda Hayes opposite, In RKO Radio's Millionaires In Prison, which Producer Howard Benedict plans to send before the cameras on April 14 Kay McLarey will handle the megaphone Tracy last appeared for RKO as the criminal lawyer in The Spellbinder.

H1 ERE'S a chance for an am bitious dramatist S. J. Kauf man, well known New York producer, writes me to the effect that Roy Roberts, the young actor now appearing with Helen Hayes In Ladies and Gentlemen, plans to become an actor producer next season. Mr. Roberts is eager to encourage budding dramatists, and says that since this will be his first venture as a producer he would like to produce someone's first play.

Manuscripts should be addressed to him to the Lambs Club, 130 West 44th New York. More than one Canadian dramatist has made good In Broadway productions 1 1 recent years and it may be that some Manitoban may be able to produce Just what Mr. Roberts requires. At any rate the opportunity Is open. 0 0 "tHARLES Laughton doesn't know Vj it yet but he was hoaxed by a bit of democracy in reverse.

RKO has a wacky electrician named Tommy whose pet gag is pretend ing to be a big financier. In a sort of Wall Street double talk he has perfected, Tommy chats glibly about bond issues and preferred stocks. Laughton heard a lot of such gibberish and was very curious until another joker tipped him on that Tommy really was a representative of the Rockefeller Inter ests who had been sent to work Incognito at the studio, observe morale and economy, and decide whether more money should be put Into the company. Laughton was deeply impressed. Later, when Tommy was sharply bawled out by an assistant director, the actor drew the assistant aside and suggested an apology to the elec trician.

I'm not at liberty to tell you his real identity," he said mysteriously. "But he Is a man who definitely should not be antag onized!" rooav 7 I I ill riJLLUUM TO DAY I 11 A.M. 2 P.M, 15 2 Great Showa In 1 (Adult) ALSO Crsef Robert CARSON TAYLOR 'Remember' ilSoTsj it 'B special a.
