10 THE GAZETTE. MONTREAL. SATURDAV. FEBRUARY L 1D'2J. YOU CLVIII. No. 29 1 CZZI NEWS OF STAGE AND SCREEN El j Lobby :By R. Recapitulation With at least eix worth-while films shown here during January, the month goes down a3 a very pleasant "i for picture-goers. As a matter of record, there was not a single week during the month when there was not on view in one or the other of the picture emporium? at least one product fitted to command the attention of the more particular of the patrons, and this is something which is not to be dismissed too lightly. Since, for either good or bad, the moving picture has become one of our major forms of entertainment, one is to be grateful, at any rate, that to keep the fussy ones amused. In the month's list there are two . that will be likely candidates for the annual roll of honor of the best ten. And if they are. not to be found there at the end of the year, it will mean that there have been some exceptionally fine pictures made in the interim, for they have set a mighty swift pace for 1929. These two ar& "The Shopworn Angel" and "A Woman of Affairs." Another feature of the month is the effective use of dialogue in some of these productions. Though not a rooter for the new form, the writer finds himself compelled to reverse his judgment in' view of the results achieved in a couple of instances. The great problem of the producers nt the praspnt time, nnt tnkinir inr.i account the mechanical difficulties, is to find in what proportion to ths whole of the film dialogue i-: best employed. The odds are against the 10'J per cent dialogue pictures. It has been found that exposition and development of the story can b accomplished more rapidly and satisfactorily in the silrat form, with the dialogue being reserved for he bis ecenes. Witness the expert use of it in "Alias Jimmy Valentine" and "The Shopworn Angel." "The Shopworn Angel" is practically without fault, utiles it be that the musical synchronization employs 1S28 songs for action that takes place in 1917- Certainly, of its kind the tale of a Broadway chorus girl with a good provider there has never been a better one, on the screen. Excellent in story outline and in production detail, beautifully cast and well directed, the picture, with its sophistication and sentiment, with its harsh realities and tender moments, is a chapter written from life. The story, if you recall, tells of a chorus girl, living in comfort and luxury with a wealthy and genial man of the world, who js compelled to give a soldier a lift to the ferry Jeading to camp. Ha is an inexperienced, shy, awkward youth from Texas, in a big city for the first time and wary of women. Having been ragged by the men for his backwardness with women, he creates an impression on them when he rolls up in the exnensive llmnusinn with tho crii He pretends that she is his girl friend, but his bluff is called when the men discover him ordering her picture from an agency. They all make for the stage door, but the girl, jin an easy-going mood that night, sees' the boy through. He is thrilled and enthusiastic, while the girl is more or less amused and taken aback bv his dumb and sincere devotion. This continues for a while, with tire boy worshipping the girl more and more devotedly, until the day when mo wuer comas ror tne troops embark. The boy leaves camp without leave and spends the day with the girl. At last he stammers out his proposal of marriage, and the girl who pities his loneliness and fee's that he should bo made happy before going to an almost certain death consents, though she intends never to see him again. This action on her, part causes a break between her and her "guardian," as the man has been introduced to the boy. Comes the ma--riaga ceremony, and the girl, wrought fiHerfKhe ann?r jn which she has fooled the boy, faints, and by the time she has revived the boy has been taken by the military police fhe last scenes show the girl looking for a job in the chorus, and the dance director, who has had to put up with her temperamental outbursts because of the protection accorded her by her 'angel," places her in the back row Rehearsal is on, but in the midst of a. song the girl has a vision of the boy being shot and she utters a scream. But the director Is on her heels, and without any more ado he has to break into the dance and song routine .of the chorus. Nancy Carroll, as the chorus girl and Gary Cooper, as the shy Texan, are splendid. Then, too, there is Paul Lukas who makes the girl's keeper a charm-1 in:t and likeable person not in the slightest like the screen's usual conception of these fellows. The use of dialogue and sound in the last two sctnes adds ,to what ';4s a' finished production. Out of "The Green Hat," banned by the Hays organization, came "A Woman of Affairs," a close adaptation of the book, except for a few minor details, and a much more convincing version than the, play. Greta Garbo, accepted as a screen personality but here and there denied the reputation of a worthy actress, demonstrates to the sceptics that sh can act with the best of them. Miss Garbo makes the role of the glamorous Iris March, called Diana Merrick on the screen, such that even Michael Arlen must rub his eyes and wonder The picture is done In a more realistic vein than the play, with some of the Arlen embroidery neatly trimmed down. Physically the production is excellent and rich and the direction by Clarence Brown is noteworthy. The tragic ending is retained. John Gilbert is entirely subservient to the glamorous Miss Garbo and the balance of the cast Is good' Most of the applause, however, goes U Miss Garbo. The first all-talking production to DE MARKY'S RECITAL Hungarian Pianist to Perform . at Ritz-Oarlton Soon Paul de Markv, Hungarian pianist, will Rive a recital nt the Rltz. Carlton on February 20, Montreal's Interear in the career and the plavlng of thin young nuislcifin, who has come to live here, hna been shown in tho dc-rt.and already made for tickets for. I ho recital. 'Co hn.vs made his debut n a concert pianist before nn auilioiiOM of l.SPP people on the earn tiIkIU that he tried his final law examination at Talk R. Rj be shown here. "The Terror," in spite o- some glaring defects, was entertaining. At best the story was weak-kneed. At best, too, the lines were childish and silly. Tet the combination of sound and shadows, dialogue, and such action as there was, was immensely effective. The whole picture was overacted. Lines which were mere exposition were delivered 'with all the seriousness and heaviness of a momentous announcement concerning the downfall of a dynasty. The whole thing was done to musical accompaniment to accentuate the mood, and whatever the virtue of that, it prevented one effect from getting over as well as It should have. This was the eerie playing of the organ which every now and then was supposed to break through the silenceof the house. The ear having become accustomed to the music, the organ sound was hardly as terrifying as it might have been. And yet with all these defects "The Terror" was amusing and interesting. Always an able performer, Emil Jannlngs acted his way vigorously through "Sins of the Fathers." the sentimental tragedy of a German -American waiter who becomes a bootlegger. By no means one of his best, and as a whole below the level of real first-rate work, the picture remains a good show. One, of the high spots is the manner in which the director, Ludwig Berger, managed to catch the 6plrit of the pre-prohibitibn days of the German-American colony in New York. In addition to Jannings, there is a good performance by Ruth Chatterton. who here makes her screen debut. She plays the siren who is the cause for the waiter's downfall in an impressive fashion, which would remain such even if it were not her first appearance in films. The good old thriller, "Alias Jimmy Valentine," has been resurrected with good taste and judgment. Deleting most of the heavy melodrama, the director has told "the story in a light and humorous vein, with just the right shade of sentiment. The result is good entertainment. Important here, too, is the skilful use of dialogue. Most of the picture is told silently. When the climactic scene in which the detective is trying to trap the now reformed criminal is reached, the picture drops into dialogue. Lionel Barrymore, naturally enough, is the pick of all the speakers, and close behind him is an unknown actor, Hickman by name. William Haines, who does the itle role In handy style, drops a little when he has to talk, but he is good enough. Love scenes in dialogue still appear a big worry to the movies, and for the time being, at any rate, it would be better for them to make love in sil ence. The German-made Spies is chier-ly interesting for its settings and photography. A melodrama of the E. Philip Oppenheim brand, it is swift and exciting, involving U activities of an elaborate band of international spies. The uermans can cena.iniy incorporate the mooa ot tne arama into their settings. . A blonde, Lill Dyer, is worth the attention of some American producer. Aside from its good looks, Doth in Jt3 production and in its leading per former. Billie Dove, tnere is very little that can be said for "Adoration." TellinK a tale of the fate of the nobility during the Russian Revolution, it suffers from the usual story weakness and from its narra tive rather than aramauc umuuciu. At its very best, it Is but reasonably gratifying. Billie Dove, lovelier tnan ver. is more animated tnan is Jier wont. She is being continuant handicapped by poor vehicles, and while this one is better than some of nihr it is still not strong enough to register very impressively. Of the so-called programme manu, Scarlet Seas" probably takes the lead. Richard Bartneimess appeai here as a hard-boiled skipper, some where east of Suez." as the title-writer originally puts It, who abducts from a dive one of the girls who has continually spurned his suit of honest love. , Their ship is wrecked, and while the two of them, the only re maining survivors, are arming a.uyUL, a' religious fervor seizes; them and they decide to "go straight." Later they are picked up by a. vessel on which there has been a mutiny, and the picture waxes melodramatic In good old movie fashion. Betty Compson, who this year is staging B comeback after reverses of three or four vars.-does well in tne roie ui the abducted girl. There is an interesting story to be gotten out of such q fnunlA three or four years after such an incident, though perhaps its treatment would nave to De a ihu. too adult for movie purposes.

The noted Belgium ' siring quar-tettn, jhe "Pro Arte," has been booked for m. concert in this city by .1. A. Oauvln. Tha recital will take place on february 24. . HEW PLAN AFOOT TO FINANCE PRODUCERS Corporation May Be Organized to Supply Money for Legitimate Productions LATEST SHUBERT REVUE "Pleasure Bound" Will Open in New York on February 1 1 Frank McOlynu in Role of Rabbi New York, February 1 What is at present nothing more than a hazy proposal may develop into an interesting project if those behind actually see it through. There is a plan afoot for the formation of a corporation, t be capitalized at a considerable amount, which will select six producers and finance them in such productions as they may propose. The maximum amount for any production is to be In the neighborhood of J7B.000, and for this the corporation will get fifty per cent, ownership in the production. This means that., once having selected the producer, the corporation will rely entirely upon his judgment. He will choose the script, cast It, rehearse it. and whatever the costs, up to the maximum amount, will be supplied him. And the producer will retain half Pf the ownership. As has been stated, this plan is only in its embryonic stages, and not even the names of the sponsors or the producers involved are known. John Searles, an attorney, formerly associated with the Actors' Equity, and Joseph P. Bickerton, jr., representative of the dramatists' organization, are both mentioned as being its leading spirits. Wall Street is supposedly interested in the scheme, and there is a possibility that there will be a public sale of stock. The plan is not exactly new, since the Shuberts have employed a similar working arrangement for some time. The difference, however, appears to be that, whereas the Shu-bers have had something to say about the production, under this new scheme the producer will be left entirely on his own. "PLEASURE BOUND." A revue called "Pleasure Bound," which has been evolved from - the musical show known as "Well, Well, Well," which the Shuberts have had on tour for several months, is announced to open at the Majestic Theatre on Monday night, February 11. Jack Pearl and Phil Baker will head the cast, and the featured players will further include Shaw and Lee, seen here last season in "The Five O'clock Girl," and Alleen Stanley. - Others In the company will Include Fred. Hillebrand, Roslta Mareno.'Roy Hoyer, Noel Francis and Ralph Locke. ' , The music of the new show is the work of Muriel Pollock, and the lyrics have been written by Max and Nathaniel Lief. WITH FRANK MeGLYNN. Frank McGlynn, who created the' title role in "Abraham Lincoln," will hae the principal part in "The Broken Chain," scheduled for a Broadway showing some time during the week of February 11. The play was written by William J. Perlman, and is being produced by Jacob A. Weiser. Mr. McGlynn will play the part of a rabbi, a role which had been originally assigned to Ian Mac-laren, who was forced out by illness. Mary Fowler- is the leading woman. PLAY BY MILNE. Mary Ellis and Basil Sydney have found a play by A. A. Milne which they consider favorably, and are accordingly busy with its production. It is called "To. Have the Honor," acted four or five, years ago in London, but not yet imported into this country. The New York opening is slated for February 25. In London the main parts were played by Gerald Du Maurler and Madge Titheradge. THEATRE GUILD ACTIVITIES. The Theatre Guild production - to follow "Dynamo" in New York will be the Romain Rolland play, "The Game of Love and Death," one of the trilogy having to do with the French Revolution.- It goes' into rehearsal Monday under the direction ot Rou-ben Mamoulian, and will enlist the services of the cast now engaged in playing "Marco Millions" and "Vol-pone." This company begins a fortnight in Newark Monday, and will play, at the conclusion of the Newark engagement, two weeks at Werba's, Brooklyn, after which it will be presented in New York in the new play. "Dynamo" is now definitely scheduled to open at the Martin Beck Theatre February II. The play wiil have the stage of that theatre for a week before its opening for a series of dress rehearsals. The proposed tour ot Louis Jou-yet and his company from the Theatre ' Louis .Touvet (Comedie des Champs-Elysees) from Paris, announced by The Theatre Guild to begin with a fortnight's engagement In New York to open March 11, has been cancelled Insofar as this sea-ton Is concerned. M. Jouvet, In a communication to the Guild, explains that complications of a business nature prevent the. engagement this season. The tour will be carried out later, however, and thefe is a strong probability that 11 will be started next season. PROVINCETOWN BILL.
