...4 12 A TJIE BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE, NEW YOKK, YEDXESDAYt JANUARY 30, 3929. I- The Cinema Circuit :By MARTIN 'Absence of Good Dialogue Mars Talking Film, "The Wolf of Wall Street," at the Rialto. Other Screen Items. mi-IE WOLF OF WALL STREET," which is to be seen at I the Rialto Theater these afternoons and evenings, adds emphasis to a prevailing suspicion that what the talking pictures need more than anything else Is something to say. The mechanics of the Movietone and he Vita-phone are, true enough, approaching a certain perfection, and I shall admit that the ladies and gentlemen of Hollywood have displayed an unlooked for competence in roles requiring dialogue. But, with the possible exception of the few "talkies" which have been adapted directly from the stage, the audible cinema has so far produced nothing in the way of dramatic writing that could not have been composed by a child of ten. In the current screening at the Rialto, a story which is not unlike "The Lion and din Mouse" in its exposition of the unscrupulous methods of high finance, the drama finds Its lowest level in a set of makeshift lines that could hardly do Justice to a fourth-rate stage play. An aimless collection of syllables, it would peem that they had been composed for the mere sake of audibility. There is nothinq like even fair dramatic construction in the continuity cf the lines, nor is there an ounce cf significance in what the actors bellow the loudest. From all appearances "The Wolf of Wall Street" would have been a more satisfying entertainment as a strictly silent exhibition. Its situations, revolving about the activities of a clever stock operator who gives too much time to the ticker and not enough to his wife, are not altogether empty ones as movie events go. There is even a half-hearted attempt to show how the stock market works from the inside to the detriment of the lambs who are herded meekly to the slaughter. A few shots of the Exchange floor in action are rather interesting, and in at least one episode the spectator Is offered a fair idea of how a pool is managed with a view to the inflation of prices. All this becomes moderately entertaining as a Uietorial account, but it is the vapid dialogue which reduces most of the proceedings to dullness. As the unscrupulous operator, the Wolf of WaU Street, George Bancroft gives the kind of blustery performance which has characterized his work In the past. He has a good speaking voice, and the fact that his speeches somehow fail to carry conviction must, again, be attributed to the inconsequent nature of the lines. That excellent actress, Baclanova. Is altogether satisfacy In the role of the broker's unfaithful wife. To accord with her broken English, the character has been Identified as a Russian woman. It might be added that the part requires her to sing one or two songs in which she accompanies herself at the piano and on the guitar. And, as it will be recalled that MHe. Baclanova traces her training in these matters to the Moscow Art Musical Studio, it Music of : By EDWARD "Carmen, With Maria Jeritza, Is Sung at the Academy of Music The Philadelphia Orchestra Again. CIARMEN was a debutante of seven seasons when Fried-, erich Wilhelm Nietzsche made her acquaintance In Genoa during the winter of 1881-82; the Dionysus of modern German philosophy was charmed and promptly fell in love. There was, however, a pretext for this sudden passion which only became entirely clear with the publication of "The Case of Wagner." Nietzsche was not the most gallant of lovers, and he hoped with these demonstrations of affection to asperse a former liaison. His memories of Bruenn-hilde and Isolde were embittered by the latest metamorphosis of what Mr. Rosenfeld has called Wagner's Woman. He had submitted to the pagan embraces of Bruennhilde (who might well, he once thought, mother the Superman), but the neo-Chrlstian ardors of Kundry estranged him. Invective was not sufficient revenge for such perfidy, so he defamed the old love by openly preferring the new. His seraglio in Genoa, w here he was recuperating from ill health and overwork, included Rossini's Serniramis, Bellini's Juliette and, as the favorite, Bizet's Carmen. The gesture could hardly be accounted gracious, but it was effective. Hearing Bizet's music for the first time, Nietzsche wrote to a lrirnd. "I almost think that 'Carmen' is the ! best opera that exists. As long as we live, it will remain in the repertories of Europe." Later he developed this theme. "The Case of Wagner" opens with a three-page panegyric on Carmen." "How such a work por-lects one! One becomes a 'masterpiece' one's faelf by its influence. And really, I appear to myself, every time I have heard 'Carmen,' to be more of a philosopher, a better philosopher than at other times. Five hours sitting: the first stage of lioll-ress!" Then, from the one-time apostle of Wagner, "May I venture to say that Bizet's orchestra music is almost the sole orchestration that I can endure?" Before long, he had annotated the score: the sinister, oracular phrase that we recognize as the motif of Fate he characterized as an epigram of passion "the best that has been written of love since Stendhal." One detects a touch of malice, as well as of enthusiasm such sentiments as "Have more painful, tragic accents ever been heard on the stage? And how are they obtained? Without grimace! Without counterfeit coirt-atjel Without imposture of the grand style!" and that there was a mean, ing in this madness we learn quickly enough. Three pages in praise of Bizet are followed by a score devoted to libel against the genius of Wagner. Jlm s musical critic, KwUich's best faculties were employed in appreciation. Today his arraignment of Wagner seems scarcely worthy of consideration, but we concur in his estimate of Bizet. "Carmen" is indeed a masterpiece though hardly in Nietzsche s exclusive sense. It not only survives in the operatic repertory; it is essential there. We listen to the music and we agree that "it approaches lightly, nimbly and with courtesy"; that it "is amiable, It does not produce sweat"; that "It builds, It organizes, it completes." We respond to its Intoxicating southern warmth, to its dellrate exoticism, to those rmisicRl and emo- tlonal qualities wlilcii cave secured DICKSTEIN: "The Wolf of Wall Street" A Paramount picture directed by Rowland V. Lee, Marring Ocorgc Bancroft. At the Rialto Theater. THE CAST. Bradford Georce Bancroft Bob Arthur Rankin Mrs. Bradford Baclanova Clcrt. Nancy Carroll David Tyler Paul Lukas can be understood that she sings and plays with charm. Paul Lukas and Nancy Carroll occupy the other prominent roles. As a pictureplay, then, "The Wolf of Wall Street" is at best a spotty eilort. The music is all right, but the words are terrible. An Octavus Roy Cohen talking comedy, enacted by a colored cast, is an amusing curtain-raiser to the feature. Screen Notes. "Across the Atlantic via Zeppelin," described as "the complete story In sound and talking pictures of the trip of the Graf Zeppelin from Frledrlchshafen to New York," will be released by Metro-Goldwyn-Maycr next week. It is a three-reel film made by Robert W. Hartman, a newspaper camera man, who was a passenger on the dirigible. Count Hugo von Eckener, commander of the craft, and Lady Grace Drum-mond Hay, the only woman passenger on the westward flight, will be heard in the talking sequence of the picture. Pat Rooney and Marian Bent, with their son, Pat Rooney Jr., have completed their first talking comedy. "Sweethearts," at the Universal studio. Their second effort, to be called "The Love Birds," will be started immediately, A score of feature productions, Including several all-talking pictures, are now in various stages of production at the Fox West Coast Studio. Among the Movietone efforts are "Speakeasy," "Hearts in Dixie," featuring an all-Negro cast; the Fox Movietone Follies and "Nobody's Children." Other productions on the list include F. W. Murnau's forthcoming picture, "Our Daily Bread" and "Joy Street," which will feature Lois Moran and Nick Stuart. the Day CUSHING "Carmen" Opera In four acts, by George Bizet. Presented by the Metropolitan Opera Company at the Academy of Musle last evening with the following cast: Carmen Maria Jeritza Micaela Nina Morgana Frasqulta Charlotte Ryan Mercedes Merle Alcock I)on Jose Oiovannl MurtinelU Escamlllo Lawrence Tibbett Uancalre Millo Plcco Remendado Angelo Bada Zii"le,a , Louis U' Angelo Morales George Conductor Louis Ha&selmaus It a unique position in the literature of opera. And for the sake of these things, we endure even such poor performances as that given in the Academy of Musle last evening. "Carmen" has not been sung in Brooklyn for a number of years. Destitute of an artist for the title role, the Metropolitan dropped it for a time from its repertory. Last season Mine. Jeritza, coming to the rescue, the opera was revived, and for this much, at least, we may be grateful. It has been better sung and better played, but no matter is a poor "Carmen" any the worse than a poor "Faust"? And the trouble here is not so much a matter of production, but springs rather from this, that the race of Carmens is depleted; Is, indeed, vanished Irom the earth so far as we are concerned. Mmc. Jeritza's etlorts to supply the deficiency recommend her to us as an accomplished and coascientious artist, but not as Carmen. It was a well-defined characterization that she presented last evening, carefully considered In all its details, consistent, and even at tunes effective as in the card scene. But Mine. Jeritza cannot transcend the physical and artistic limits of person and temperament: we may admire her as a singer .iiul as an actress, we may respect the skill of all that she does, but it is not possible lor us to believe in her as Carmen, In last evening's cast she was associated with Mr. Martinelli and Mr. Tibbett. Both of these gentlemen assisted the performance to such excellence aj it attained. Mr. Johnson as Don Jose, would not have come out of his role to take bows as Mr. Martinelli did, occasioning some amusement In the audience, but Mr. MarUnelli's is the superior voice. And if one pri'fers the Esca-millo of Mr. Pinza, it is not necessary for that reason to deny that Mr. Tibbett handles the role suavely and intelligently and slugs it well Mr. D'Angelo was a capital Zuniga. The performance was conducted by Mr. HassHmnns. Unfortunately, the intprmezzl were omitted, though these contain some of the best of "LITTLE ACCIDENT forj'fvur ,t:yr " wv ; ) IS Thomai Mitchell, at He Appear in the Successful Comedy at the Ambassador Theater.

Gin and whisky get one lit. But still the world goes on. DUKE. YAWN DEPARTMENT. Great indeed are the uses of advertisement. A Book Publisher takes a full page in a current weekly Magazine to give circulation to the testimonial of a Russian Lady of Title. The Lady testimonials to the effect that "realizing that it is tile duty of titled personages to set a good example, she makes it a noint never to be seen in public without a (publisher's name) book under her arm!" Whoopee! People no longer read books they wear 'em! A restaurant advertises Its special sandwiches, which it names after Beeway Celebrities. One sandwich, comprised of corned beef, chicken and ham, is named after and graciously indorsed by a well-known comedian who hasn't been able to eat anything but mush and milk for more than seven months! A glowing advertisement for a razor carries the gracious testimonial of an opera singer who has worn a beard for 12 years, and the manufacturer of a well-known, widely advertised medicine offers the testimonial of a prizefighter who, in his autobiography in an adjoining newspaper column, proudly announces that he has never taken a pill in his life! Cigarettes, hich, after all, are merely smokers' articles, have invaded the drug and panacea field. One Is advertised to prevent a cough; one makes you nonchalant; one enables you to reduce your Bizet's music. It might have been wiser to omit the ballet. THE PHILADELPHIA ORCESTRA. The Philadelphia Orchestra, with Mr. Gabrllowitsch conducting his third and last concert of this organization for the season, played last night at Carnegie Hall a program of music all of which was familiar to New York audiences. The Brahms Symphony in D major, with which Mr. Gabrllowitsch began, was given a singularly uninspired per formance. The first three movements were played almost lackadaisically, as though the conductor could find no contact with the music. The last movement, although not quite so aloof and detached, never theless missed fire somehow and had little of the triumphant spirit called for in the score. The orchestra played smoothly and with tonal beauty, but the soul of Johannes Brahms was far away. Josef Hofmann's Symphonic Narrative, "The Haunted Castle," is music which seemed last night to lie closer to Mr. Gabrilowltsch's heart. He gave this piece a glowing and dynamically colored performance, which brought out all there was to be found in the score. The tone-poem itself leans strongly on Liszt and more especially Scriabiu for its Inspiration, and indeed it would seem that Mr. Hofmann had taken one of the Russian composer's metaphysical rose-colored symphonies as his model, not only thematica'.ly, but down to the last detail in tlie orchestration. The orchestra played it superbly with all the virtuosity and beauty of tone at its command. The concert closed with a brilliant rendition of Rimsky-Korsakow's overture, "Russian Easter," a not very consequential, though, as always with this composer, effectively scored composition. JEROME BOHM. OTHER MUSIC Yelly D'Aranyi, violinist, and Myra Hess, pianist, gave a Joint recital in the Town Hall yesterday afternoon. Individually artists of the first water, they are an unusually well-matched and sympathetic duct, and added another to the list of their mutual triumphs In performing a program of sonatas by Brahms, Mozart, Beethoven and Franck, Among the evening concerts was one given by the Paullst Choristers, Father William J. Flynn conducting, at the Metropolitan Opera House. The program contained a quantity of a capMla music by Pal-estrlna, Handel, Byrd, Gibbon and others, and was .skillfully sung. The soloists were John Flnnegan and Master John Kearney. T.W. to Type JAMES: weight and lo and behold! the advertising scribe for still another has just discovered that In his product you have a peerless nerve cure! And the enthusiastic ad writer for yet another brand has taken his product out of the realms of ordinary rivalry and put it Into direct competition with the letter of credit! Which is a swell idea. If you saw the latest Melachrino advertisement, you know' what we mean. It depicted a very Wall-Streety gentleman at the late Automobile Show. The gentleman had just ordered a Rolls Royce. "Shall I pay you a deposit?" he inquires of the attending salesman as he lights a cigarette. "Oh, no, that's all right, sir," answers the salesman. "I see you smoke Melachrinos. I'll be glad to take your order without a deposit." Being young and enthusiastic, we learn quickly. Having ordered one of those snootv nPv Graham-Paiges, we confidently pulled a large pack of Melachrinos on the Imperturbable salesman. "The deposit will be five hundred dollars," he said. "Have a cigarette." we answered slyly, extending the box. "A mere five hundred dollars," he repeated, offering us a blank cheek. "They're Melachrinos," we said determinedly. "Thanks." he said, with Just as much determination, as he handed us a fountain pen. We signed on the dotted line, tossed the Mela-rhrlnos behind a fake palm tree and lit a Marlboro. Life is like that. TRIOLET IN REBELLION. Columnists should pay contribs; Poets cannot live on air. Tis the truth. 1 tell no ibs: Columnists should pay contribs.

As long as we can remember everybody has talked about the frightful traffic conditions, but even Mr. Hylan, with streets, parks, boulevards and points west named alter mm, did nothing about it, Always, as we used to zoom by "Mr. Hylan's Play Street" "Mr. Hylan's Water Works "Mr. Hvlan's Pave' ment Upheaval" and "Mr. Hylan's seventy-nine Hospitals ' we had a feeling that doing something about it really belonged in his department. Shucks, even a Mayor can't spend ALL his time selecting Billboards with his name on 'em. But he never did, and now Mr. Whalen, erstwhile greeter, executive and present f inan cier and Police Commissioner, has done something about it. And to this naive pair of eyes it appears that he nus done one swell lob Getting to the theater, which used to be a matter of pure speculation, nas Become a pleasant adventure Cops are less inclined to bark at you, You can go places and do things in comfort. And the thanks belong to Mr. Whalen exclusively We're for him. He has been accused of being a notoriety seeker. His answer has been to make the town exceedingly unpleasant for languishing yeggs. He has been accused of being a master showman. In retort he has enabled New York to get to the theater on time. He has rolled up his nattv blue-sew sleeves and actually tickled Jobs that his predecessors only talked about. A3 a scribe who can now flit from the Leverich Towers Hotel to Sardl's Restaurant In exactly 12 minutes flat, we doff our hat, coat and umbrella to Mr. Whalen, wish him continued success and pledge him our support, feeble though she be.
