SATURDAY, MARCH 15, 1030. THE DAILY COURIER; CONNELLSVI1 ,LB, PA'. THRKET. the Theatres The Paramount Tho attainments of George Arltes, star o£ the Warner Bros, and Vita-. phono production, "Disraeli" at the Paramount Thoatro now, do not stop with anting. Although tor y«ars Arliss has bebn recognized an one- of the outstanding character actors on Iwth the American and English «lag«, he is also an author of note. i Biography and history especially interest him. During tho war, for recreation, he delved deeply into tho llfo ot Alexander Hamilton, tho great American statesman, arid later wrote the biographical play, "Alexander Hamilton," In which he scored euch a success in the title role. Ho has a too written several other oue act and full length plays in past years. | Assisting Mr. Arils* in tho Vita- phono version of "DU-raeli," his great etago miccesy, are such splendid players as Joan Bennett, Ptore-nco Arliss, Ivan Simpson. David Torrence, Doris Lloyd and Anthony Bushel. Al Green directed and Juian Joeophsoii wrote the sicrecn play. The program also Includes Amos' and Andy, a chapter of "Tarssan the Tiger," an all talklnj; news reel. The Paramount Music and thrilling- drama are ideally combined in "Playing Around," and the resulting picture is one of the very heat and most intertainirig ve- hlclos in which the sparkling Alice White has yet heen BOOU and heard. Tie First National and Vitaphone ( offering will open Monday at the; Paramount for a thrce-t'ay attraction, j "I'laylng Around" is good romantic I stuff, aiii to the original story by Vina Delmar, has been added just the right amount of dancing, music a n d ; sonK, without detracting from the plot' value of tho picture in' the least. | Credit for this is dua to Mervyn LeRoy. tho young director, who n« to be definitely teamed w i t h Mise White in picture production these days. It is a strong combination. Afl Sheba Miller, heroine of "Playing Around," Alice White wins a leg contest at a night club and meets a euave crook, played excellently by the popular Chestar Morris. His millionaire's nfcnner wins her affection and they are about to get married ·when the crook, in need of money, i roba Sheba'a father, wounding him: with a bullet. The end comes with a rush and Is one of (hose unexpected and novel climaxes that we often wieh for, but eeldorn eee. The Orpheum Following close on hie tremendous success of "Bulldog Drummond," Ronald Colman'a latest starring picture, "Condemned!" .comes to the O f p k e u m Theatre on Monday. It was produced by Samuel Cold- wyn. Set ae it is In the famous French penal colony of Dovll's Island and in South America, v.'lth a brilliant ca,st of stage and screen favorites "Condemned!" is said to !e Column's greatest picture, Colman's role la that, of a dashing French thief sent to eerv^ a term in tho hideous prison which the French call "The Island of Living Death." Opposite him in the cast i.-i Ann Harding, note Broadway stage star, whose stage performance in "The Trial of J'fary Dugan" made her internationally afnioiifl, and who had been lately successful in her first plclure "Paris Bound." Louis Wolhelm, favorite character actor, has another prominent role, as also has Dulley Digges, star of the New York Theatre Guild. The fever-infeeted swampn which make escape from De\il's Island practically impossible, the sordid horrors of prison ships and squalid cells, combined with the growth of a pure love between a convict and a beautiful girl, give "Condemned " unique and picturesque qualities. Its wettings designed by William Cameron Men- ziea, are said to be the most striking work ever done by this world-famous artist ia picture settings.
