When the picture came on for the second time, they refused to get out of their seats to allow the standees to see the show in comfort. But instead of concentrating on Miss West and her light-fingered and heavy-hipped antics, they drew attention to themselves by starting small riots here and there on the orchestra floor and by drowning the dialogue on the screen in their own hysterical screams. It needs a psychiatrist to explain these strange goings-on. All I know is that they proved a great distraction to a normal enjoyment of the picture. Miss West, the only star in Hollywood. who writes her own screen plays, fancies herself as an- early Twentieth Century siren. In "Every Day's a Holiday" she is a high-pressure confidence gal who gets in wrong with the' New York police department for selling Brooklyn Bridge to simpletons from foreign parts. For the first time in her screen career Mae covers her golden locks with a jet wig when, during several sequences, she masquerades as a French music hall performer. In this impersonation she sings the one number of the picture, a mild little ditty by Sam Coslow in French and Engish. Lowe Reforms Her. Edmund Lowe, as the chief of her supporting cast, plays an honest detective who falls for Mae and is instrumental in getting her to lead a more conventional and law-abiding life. She promotes iis candidacy for mayor and helps to elect him. Charles Winninger repeats the "Hap-py New Year" stunt which he did with such hilarious effect in "Show Boat," and Charles Butterworth, Walter Cat- lett, Herman Biner and Chester Conklin add comedy bits to the story. Lloyd Nolan is good in the role of a crooked and , menacing chief of police. - ..-, As indicated above, the audience was the most important part of the stage show, over which Benny Goodman presided with his swing band.
