12 A THE BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE, NEW YORK. WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 17. 1928. "Olympia" Arrives Other Gossip of the Stage Films Music The Theaters :By ARTHUR POLLOCKS "Olympia," Latest Comedy by Ferenc Molnar, Is Given Life (When It Is Lively) by Laura Hope Crews. LYMPIA" is the latest cbmedy of Ferenc Molnar, most popular in I I America of Hungarian dramatists, and It Is by no means Molnar's best, Gilbert Miller presented it last night at the Empire Theater before an audience expectant and appreciative of all three of its acts, save the last. The last did the comedy r.o good. It was Molnar at his dullest. No one would have expected him capable of so great a dullness. "Olympia" begins by seeming 'about to be something like the same dramatist's "The Swan," a comedy made from the vicissitudes in the love of a princess and a commoner. "The Swan's" sentiment is not there, though, at any time. "Olympia" is adamant by comparison, a tightly constructed play with so little to say that its little, must be repeated to Insure its lasting an evening; no variety, little of that charming flexibility, few ol the surprises that Jolnar put into "The Play's the Thing." It is gay only with a glittering, tired gayety and seldom piquant. In the lounge of a smart hotel in one of Austria's watering places the dramatist brings together a princess of Austria and a captain of the Imperial Hungarian Hussars. The time is the summer preceding the war. The captain loves the princess and the princess the captain, and great is the buzzing of tongues as a result. A dashing fellow, charming, a perfect match for her save for the fact that his station is far below hers, he finds himself discarded cruelly because the princess' mother, who admires him greatlv and finds him entertaining, sees that the buzzing tongues will be the ruin of herself, her husband and the girl. "Be kind," she says to her daughter, "be humane. Do not make him suffer. Kill him!" And. though it does irreparable damage to her heart, the princess, most obedient of daughters, kills him by calling him peasant, jilting htm brutally because , he is so far beneatn ner. Being a spirited fellow, he permits hi pride to be nun. wnen tne uru of the local constabulary appears to brand him a thief, a card sharp and completest of rogues he admits it readily, tnereoy puuinn me i;i mother and daughter in a horribly embarrassing position. All Austria-Hungary will roar and they will be ruined. The captain is willing, however, to talk of blackmail, though unfortunately he insists that the princess make him a present of her person as the price of his disappearance and silence. She docs so. Whereupon it turns out, as not a single member of the audience ever doubted for a moment that it would, that the crptain is no scoundrel at all. He merelv accused himself by telephone to the police to taste the jweets of revenge. So the princess and the peasant tell each other once more that they love each other and separate forever. That is not a surprising story, nor Is it told with surprising fluency or Music of By EDWARD Leopold Stokowski Resumes of the New York Concerts of the Philadelphia Orchestra. MR. STOKOWSKI, returned to the Philadelphia Orchestra, seems unchanged by illness artf absence from his familiar duties. Supporting the old elegance of figure and demeanor, he strode the stage of Carnegie Hall last evening with wide and rapid and determined strides, stepped easily onto his podium, and bowed with graceful reserve to the storm of applause thai burst in all quarters of the auditorium. His appearance routed with finality the various rumors of his plans to retire from activity as a conductor, to transfer his allegiance to another orchestra, either in this country or abroad, to desert the symphony for the opera; and his friends, whose partisanship has always been touched ' with fanaticism, welcomed him witn an ovation. Ttie conductor of the Philadelphia Orchestra is as a musician and as a man a striking and enigmatic figure. The meteoric and local phenomenon of his career arrests the attention, for while most musicians gather the dust of countries and continents on their heels in pursuit of celebrity. Mr. Stokowski has found his prize in Philadelphia and has looked no farther. In 1905 he was organist at. St. Bartholomew's Church. New York: in 1908 he became conductor of the Cincinnati Symphony; in 1911 he was called to Philadi'phia. His biographers can tell you no more. Durins 17 years legends have grown up around him. but by neither word nor action has Mr. Stokowski sought to give them currency beyond the confines of a strictly limited territory. Thus with silence and modesty he confutes their truth. If one accepts the assertion of his vanity and his ambition, how is one to interpret his contentment with the adulation of a limited public? For he seems, and must be, indifference to the opportunity for conquest offered him. ... This is the attitude of a sincere and incorruptible musician, who labors not for personal reward but for the good and the glory ot music. Nor is other evidence lacking. We need not expatiate on Mr. Stokowski's talents and abilities as a conductor. His genius for the organization and administration of an occhpstra have raised him to his present eminence: his security there is assured by his brilliant artistry. But the legends are not wholly lacking in foundation. Mr. Stokowski has with reason been suspected of affectation, of the desire for notoriety. He has been known to impose upon the esteem of his audiences and to offer them Insult and injury. And he has not always protected, by the exercise of self-criticism, the integrity of the art Intrusted to his care. e His paradoxical personality has in-nirpH mistrust and anger as well js enthusiasm, and we confess the dif- flrnit.v that we have always expen enced in maintaining a balanced attitude toward his accomplishments. a zenius. or a theatrical impostor? it ii not. nlwnvs been easy for us lO prirle.

Countess Una Cora Witherspoon Count Albert Orant Stewart Princess Eugenie Plata-Emngen Laura Hope Crews Olvmpia Fav Cnmpion Captain Koscs Ian Hunter Colonel Krehl Richie Ling Prince Flata-E'tingen Arnold KorrI brilliance or grace. All but a few minutes of the final act is padding. The first two acts unfold steadily, slowly, brightly often and yet with but slight rising interest after the tail of the first curtain. The skill of Molnar here, none too great at any DOint. is chiefly in the construction. little of it in the adornment of his tale. And if Laura Hope Crews were not. nresant to delight in the role of :ne motner. uiympia wouia ream the point of dullness earlier in tne evening. Hers is a beautiful performance quite different from anything she has done in recent years crisp, incisive, sharp, the characterization of a tvpman of decision this time and few of the weaker feminine wiles in the exhibition or which Miss Crews proved herself long ago proficient. Fav Compton, one of London's popular" actresses, plays the princess, making her a flaccid, uninteresting Derson. Ian Hunter is the captaia scarcely the imaginative, delightful fellow Molnar intended him to be roast beef without proper seasoning. Arnold Korf f plays the prince caressingly, though all his skill ts not enough to hide the fact that the role is largely a means of killing time. In the staging, which Mr. Miller has left to himself, nothing Is done to add variety to the comedy. Every scene is played in exactly the same tempo as the last the mood changes only siignuy.

In Last Night's Premiere f Si Fay Compton, in the Title Role pf Which Arrived Reverting :By RIAN m. J JUST A CUB REPORTER'S PRAYER AT TWILIGHT. I offer up a fervent prayer Of thanks, and here's the reason: .October marks the passing of The gol dumed baseball season. The parks are. closed, the players r"""-The scoreboards put away. And I'm no longer bothered With confounded "play by pla; I'm only just a rewrite man Who constantly deplores The hours drear of waiting For St. Louis' final scores. So now that baseball's over Let the Yankees have their glor;-; Perhaps I'll get a .chance som? "-; To write a decent story. Although it was the foregoing that got us started on the subject, we can't say that we have a whole lot of feeling in the matter. As one who has time and again been hot, but never bothered, over the National pastime, it strikes us that there is no less boredom in "BABE'S SOCK IN THE SEVENTH SAVES DAY" than in "SLIPPERY JOHNNY GARVEY IS ELI'S LAST HOPE." And yet we'll admit that when it comes to outdoor whoopee, we favor the pigskin over the horsehide. Granted that there is heaps of brain in baseball, there is more brawn in football. Show us a game where they have to back an ambulance up between the goal-posts, and we'll show you a game in which pretty nearly anything is likely to happen. What's a snappy curve, compared with the panorama of twenty-one men promenading on the anatomy of the twen ty-second? What, indeed, is the crack of bat against ball, to the crunch of 16 feet on a downed man's chest? Peanuts our Alma Mater it's plaster of Parts that we want! Psychologically, the human family is altogether ga-ga about seeing a fellow member risk his neck. Even the long-haired literati would rather Fee a pink columnist take a parachute jump, than read his most palpitating effusion. There may be genius id a three-bagger, but there's gore in a forward pass. Huggins may be a counterpart of Napoleon, but Knute Rockne is a modern Hercules on the hoof. The football season is shorter than the baseball season, which helps. Repetition may make reputation, but it also fans the flickering flame of familiarity. Eventually, the flame goes out. In the time that elapses between April and October, we get to know our baseball stars pretty well. The over-publicizing of a plaver's taste in Tattersalls shortly leads to ennui. How can you go ga-ga over a plaver who gets his pep from a cereal, his wind from a cigarette, and his curves from a corre onr'-nce school? The football accounts are briefer and bloodier. With Dempsey on the program, the ringside seats, at forty each, are complete sell-outs. When Dr. Straton is the attraction, there are plenty of vacant pews, and these well forward. We're glad, too. that the baseball season Is over and that the football season is here. Enough of technicalities, and strategy and such. Bring on your brawn! Hew to the line, and let the chaps fall where tney may! Ol R ANN'l AI, ri l.SE STIRRER. Red Torches gleam and children scream. While ,ffop fly everywhere.

For the benefit of both of those customers who wrote in to tell us they heard us in the capacity of Radio Announcer for Station W L T H, ths other P.M. and (1) Liked us, and (2) Didn't like us, we beg to announce that once upon a time we were a radio announcer. Alas, we are no more. Not that we didn't really like announcing. We- did. But one day in the not too dim and distant past we decided that whereas Barrymore had brought ART to the movies, and had done right well, your boy Rian had had no similar notion in connection with the Radio. Art is pleasant, but there are more calories in a cash arrangement. And so you shall probably just have to. wait to see Will Rogers, to hear that semi-Southern drawl. After two weeks of getting the air, and little else, we made up our mind that a Columnist's place was in the home. It wasn't that we didn't get paid. That wasn't it a-tall. But we worked so all-fired hard running around trying to collect our salary, that there was little time left in which to actually earn it. And so we've quit. Henceforth, and from here on, we shall probably go into some line where collecting your pesos is at least no more difficult a job than earning em. How we poor aesthetic poets suffer though!

' Michael Mornn Richard Dix ' v.nan Marshall Ruth Elder Swattv" Roscoe Kama ris:l Worth Brooks Benedict General Marshall Capt. E. H. Calvert The Sergeant Duke Martin .m Vat Tetsu Komai There is something-naively glamorous about a motion picture whose hero is a private in the U. & Marines, whose heroine is the general's favorite daughter and whose plot demands 1 1 hat one shall save the other from the clutches of Chinese bandits. I Moreover, when the valiant leather neck turns up in the person of Richard Dix and the heroine of the story is none other than Ruth Elder, aviatrix and erstwhile queen of the news reels, the effect is likely to be hardly less than sublime. All this is by way of chronicling the high points of "Moran of the Marines," the current photoplay at the Paramount Theater. It should afford a pleasant hour of entertainment for those who like to see the personable Mr. Dix in his more vigorous and self-sacrificing moments. Not that Miss Elder does not provide a few pleasant impressions herself. She does. But Miss Elder is, unfortunately, something less than a finished actress and her efforts before the camera carry a lack of conviction which at times is actually alarming. Her best scenes, of course, are those which call for a certain agility at the controls of an airplane and, naturally, "Moran of the Marines" contains a generous number of these. In spite of its rather fantastic plot, the picture at the Paramount is steeped in humor of the rowdier kind. It traces the adventures of two en listed men of the corps from the Marine Barracks at San Diego to a bandit-infested province in China. It is in the stronghold of a band of Oriental insurgents that Mr. Dix displays his single-handed heroism by delivering Miss Elder from the yellow peril of certain worse-than-death The ending is a happy one, which is entirely as it should Be. "Moran of the Marines" is hardly the kind or a movie to be taken seriously. It is distinctly something to be enjoyed and forgotten. "Blue Grass," a James Murray Anderson production, is the stage attraction.
