So it is only fitting nd proper that "The Great Ziegfeld" at the Colonial Theatre, which is a motion picture suggested by his amazing career, should be as magnificent, as picturesque and as crammed with ingenuity and talent as the combined money and talent of Hollywood could provide. In the good old Ziegfeld traditions the producers have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on sequences AMUSEMENTS 1st SHOW 1 aM IU - ..att Sylvia Sydney-Fret1 -"T7nVi" at Saf 'W'HJ i II ' kiHKar; III Illl I I Bl !UA1ZZJ&X Wj !

It was a typical Ziegfeld gesture of the producers that they should secure real lions for the beautiful Harriet Hoc-tor ballet number, to complement the horses and dogs, and then cut out the lion scene from the ballet because of the enormous length of the completed film. When Mr Ziegfeld produced his "Follies" he spent money in mad fashion to produce a perfect stage picture. So it would probably please the fastidious "Ziggy" very much could he see the finished and very expensive product of Hollywood which is the tribute of the films to the late master of stage craft. Perhaps he might smile a bit, too. Mr Ziegfeld never cared very much for the art of the cinema. The most scintillating lights of Broadway joined with the most popular stars ofHollywood in making the film. As Ziegfeld demanded the very best talent he could obtain, so Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer sent out a call for the loveliest girls, the most important stars. And the result is a tremendously decorative picture, held together in a complete entity by the acting of William Powell, Luise Rainer and Frank Morgan, and adorned in generous fashion with singing and dancing specialities by Fannie Bnce. Ray Bolger. Har riet Hoctor and actors representing win Kogers and Eddie Cantor. Ziegfeld's career sparkled and shone with gay gems of incident. and his Follies were a glittering I conglomeration of beauty and j comedy.

Ray Bolger, for instance, begs for a chance to dance in a show. He is a stage hand, with no experience as an entertainer. Through Ziegfeld's acumen he gets his chance and then comes the night of triumph, when those amazingly versatile legs leap across the stage to fame. It is a small bit but one of the high moments of entertainment and responsible for the fact that Mr Bolger has just signed a 40 weeks contract leading to Hollywood stardom. Fannie Brice is met in a burlesque house a "kidding," good-natured, badly dressed singer, who cannot believe that her back stage visitor is really Mr Ziegfeld. One is treated to a vision of Fannie "dressed up" in 10th av fashion for her Broadway debut under the Ziegfeld banner. But the unerring eye of Mr Ziegfeld is upon the actress. She is stripped of the feathers and silks, which are her idea of elegance and goes on the stage in an old shawl to tear out one's heart by her stark emotion as she sings her famous song, "My Man." It takes only five minutes of film time to turn a comedienne of first water into a woman of tragedy and power. Harriet Hoctor's ballet is as graceful and exquisite as one might expect from this dainty ballerina and A. A. Trimble makes one start in astonishment when he portrays, with surprising physical resemblance the late Will Rogers. Buddy Doyle gives a spirited and convincing impersonation of Eddie Cantor and there is a girl who looks exactly like the late Marilyn Miller. "The Great Ziegfeld" furthermore brings once more to life in all their beauty and charm the glorious Ziegfeld show girls and they form groups that might have been painted under the guidance of Ziegfeld at his triumphant best. They are adorable youngsters of youth and lithe grace, who wear their costumes with the poise of perfection, and bring back memories of the man who said that a pretty girl was like a melody. The songs are taken from Ziegfeld's own shows, for the most part, and bring a final touch of authenticity to the picture. Myrna Loy, talented and delightful, plays the role of Billie Burke with good taste and delicious allure, but feminine acting honors go to Luise Rainer in the role of Anna Held, Ziegfield's first wife. She is especially good in the highly emotional moments and her portrayal is restrained yet poignant. She is quite as vivacious and magnetic as the Miss Held of theatrical history, and her fascination is never so evident as. when she sings the Held song, "Won't you come and play wiz me?" Frank Morgan's role, played with convincing skill, is said to be that of Dillingham, but it is probably a composite character made up of the various theatrical moguls who fought Ziegfield one moment and lent him money the next, -in appearance William Powell only slightly resembles Mr Ziegfield, but his characterization is able and sympathetic. It is difficult to hew too closely to the line when bringing back to life a man so well known to thousands who will see and criticize the picture. There fore Powell has wisely kept to the Ziegfield of tradition rather than the producer of fact. It is excellent acting. Virginia Bruce portrays a chorus girl who is said to have figured in the life of Mr Ziegfield a girl who might have been a star, but who was dropped from the lists because of her dissipations. Seldom has there been a picture in which so many stars played small roles. Reginald Owen, as the financial advisor; Ernest Cossart, as Sidney, the famous valet, and Nat Pendleton as Sandow, the Strong Man, are among the players whose work deserves especial mention.

You can laugh or love a man out of his last dime, and make him like it, but every time you cry him out of something, you have slipped back a notch in his estimation. "Women take their men seriously, but no man ever lived who took his woman seriously. A man does his serious thinking and his serious acting when he is down town wrestling with a law case, a steam shovel, or a bargain sale. That's business. But when he leaves that and comes home, he wants a lot of laughs and as few tears as possible. "April showers may bring May flowers, but tear showers don't bring anything to a man, but a desire to get down town where he can have peace and plenty of it. The smart woman does her crying when her man isn't around, and then powders her nose and meets him with a laugh." "Do women have to cry?" asked Kelly. "They wouldn't be women if they didn't," replied the girl. "They can't go down to the corner and start a fist fight, can they? They have to have some kind of an emotional outlet the same as a man has." (Copyright, 1936.)

Unwarranted Skepticism TULSA, Ok, April 13 (A P) When a magician puts ducks into a black box, ducks seldom come out, so zoo employees were skeptical of a black box received from Harry Blackstone, magician. Several days previously Black-stone had traded four ducks for a pair of pheasants. He took the pheasants and said he would send the ducks. When the shipment arrived doubtful keepers opened it carefully and found four ducks. W. P. A. Artist This is my best canvas. I shall never do anything better. W. P. A. Boss Go right ahead, old man.

Marcella Swanaon The Trial of Mary Dugan" is re membered as the most popular courtroom melodrama given to the stage in recent timet. It added ma terially to the wealth of A. H. Woods, long famous as a producer of every sort of melodrama, from the hectic to the classical. In "Night of January 16" he has found another sure winner. The audience that crowded the Shubert Theatre to capacity Saturday evening was demonstratively emphatic in expressing approvaL In addition to its interest as a melodrama of exciting and baffling complications, "Night of January 16" has the added appeal of genuine novelty. It is conventional for a dramatist to be allowed to determine whether his accused heroine should be acquitted or convicted at the fall of the final curtain. Not ao in "Night of January 16." A jury of 12 men (or women) good and true is selected from the audience at each performance and marched upon the stage, there to remain and pass judgment upon the ensuing court proceedings. It is for this jury to carefully weigh all the evidence presented by the witnesses and contending attorneys, and to declare by a majority vote whether the handsome young woman charged with murder is guilty or not guilty. It matters not to the players whether the verdict is favorable or unfavorable to the aexendant; the dramatist has. furnished them with alternative concluding scenes. Saturday evening's jury included personages of more thanlocal distinction and it is to be presumed that they gave the case learned and conscientious consideration. Their verdict of not guilty won thunderous applause from the audience, but apparently did not meet with the approval of the court, for the judge ordered their names stricken from future jury lists because their verdict seemed to him to be contrary to the evidence. The plot is so ingeniously tangled up with contradictory developments that most any sort of a verdict could be justified, including that of convicting several of the testifying witnesses who might well have been personally guilty of the murder. The play is confined to the trial in the courtroom and the proceedings are generally in respectful compliance with customary legal procedure. A little less conscientious adherence might speed up some of the scenes. It would be unprofitable to tell the story in detail. A young woman. Karan Andre, is charged with the murder of her lover and employer, a Swedish financier who was as fantastic in his stock promotions as was the late Swedish "match king." She is accused of shooting him because of jealousy and throwing his body from a penthouse parapet so high above the pavements that the spattered remains were unrecognizable. Suicide is the first claim of the defense, but later it is maintained that the smashed body was that of a gangster and that the financier had flown away in an airplane to be ultimately murdered by his wife's father or somebody associated with him. It is not to be denied that the tricky cross currents of conflicting testimony are ingeniously contrived or that the interest of the audience is held at a feverish pitch to the end of the play, when nothing at all conclusive is proven. An effective performance is given by the numerous players required for presentation of the play. The role of the district attorney is a lengthy one and its exacting demands were fullfilled by John Litel, who has succeeded, after short rehearsal, the late Edmund Breese in the character. Ruth Matteson brought such beauty and feminine fascination to the personality of tha young woman accused of murder that the verdict of acquittal returned by the jury was not altogether surprising. The most humorously sketched character is that of the Swedish housekeeper who is much given to spying on the love interludes of her employer, and Sarah Padden won many a laugh for her imperso nation. Another who helped pro-S i: - m t n ' viae comic reiiei was marceiia Swanson as a wise-cracking fan dancer. Paul McGrath as the at torney for - the defense held the good will of the audience, and Wil liam Bakewell made the suave and tricky gangster a likable chap. J. Arthur Young as the judge and Harry Short as a private detective were among several others who brought distinction to their respective roles.

"Beau Geste" Locale to Be Used For Scenes in "Under Two Flags" The very spot in the desert country outside Yuma, Ari, where the famous picture, "Beau Geste." was made, is serving as the location for the scenes in "Under Two Flags," in which Claudette Colbert, Victor McLaglen and Ronald Colman are starr iri'. The cast of "Beau Geste" spent three months i- the desert country, suffering man. hardships. In order to facilitate the taking of the desert scenes for "Under Two Flags" in 8 to 10 weeks all kinds of elaborate preparations were made before the stars themjelves went on location. Yuma Indians constructed a log road to the giant bowl set amid the s id where, in the undulating bottom of the bowl, scenes were to be made. The bowl was relatively sheltered from the sweep of the near gales that move across the desert and its high, surrounding walls provided fitting vantage point for tr . camera: which were to record the large-scale operations of thousands of persons. It took many weeks to erect the actual sets for the picture, which rivaled in size and magnificence the massave piles used for "Intolerance." A main fort, a lesser fortification, an Arabian oasis, two tent cities and a horse market were constructed Wood and canvas huts were built to house the group, with mosquito pj-oof windows, oil stoves to supply heat when nocturnal cold came down on the desert and electric light3 supplied from a central power plant. A main dining tent served the personnel. Breakfast at 5 a m every morning made it possible for the actors, photographers and technical workers to spend a long day obtaining scenes. At night everybody turned in early. Notes of the Studios Charles Boyer and Sylvia Sidney have been chosen to play the leading roles in a film version of -"Wurther-ing Heights." Boyer is now playing the role of a Trappist monk in "The Garden of Allah." Jack Holt has fully recovered from his recent attack of "flu" and is now at work once more on "Crash Donovan." The veteran actor. King Baggot, will have a really good role in "The Witch of Timbuktu." Lionel Barry-more appears in female dress in most of the story, since he pretends to be an old hag in order to wreak vengeance on his foes. "Beau Geste" will be made into a lalkie, with Gary Cooper as the star. The picture will be in color. Elisha Cook Jr, featured with Joan Bennett and Joel McCrea m AMUSEMENTS l,r.-l.'CCll.'
