21 e New Photoplays Arrive on Local Screens Other News of the Theater BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE, NEW YORK, MONDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1930. The Cinema Circuit -By MARTIN 'The Lone Star Ranger' Features Mete Program at the Fox -'While Cargo' in the Talkies 'Hit the Deck' Comes to the Albee The old-fashioned "Western" bank robberies, catUe rustling 'n' its absence since the coming of Banger" at the Fox Theater this of a novelty. It is true that the . help this type of picture much, considering that the appeal of the old "Westerns" was founded primarily scenes which distinguished them from photoplays of other classifications. In "'The Lone Star Ranger," therefore, one is likely to lind the audible conversation of the cowboys and their adversaries, the outlaws, somewhat less interesting than -the $ spectacle of a gang of rustlers rounding up a herd of longhorns and guiding them across a sun baked prairie. Again, it is not scene In which George O'Brien audibly declares his devotion to Sue Carol, "but an exciting episode in which the rangers thwart the out laws' efforts to hold up a bank, that is likely to capture the interest of the spectators at the Fox this week To be sure, there is not much of a story in "The Lone Star Ranger". Just the usual sketchy outline about a Texas bad man who gave up his nefarious pursuits and Joined the rangers for the sake of a girl who happened to be the sheriff s niece It is a formula that has been used since way back in those good old days when Broncho Billy and Wil liam S. Hart were in their prime. Spoken dialogue in no way changes its ancient order, save, perhaps, that cowboys with banality dripping from their tongues are somehow less glamorous figures than those who used to chaw their quid and say nothing. Still, "The Lone Star Ranger" is interesting for its many beautiful outdoor scenes, its stunning animated views of horsemten galloping singly and In groups across far-flung plains, and for at least one good old fashioned exhibition of a Western bank robbery with plenty of (Movie tone) fireworks. For the rest you have George O'Brien acting rloble and heroic all over God's wide open spaces, Sue Carol being coy heroinely and Walter McGrail making a not very convincing pretense of being as despicable as a "Western" villain should be. The stage presentation at the Fox this week is a Fanchon and Marco ivue called "Hollywood Studio Girls." Rube Wolf continues as master of ceremonies, and Freddie Bernard, the Three Gobs and the dancing Foxettes are prominent in the cast. "WliiteTargo" "WHrrE CAROO." a talkink film version of tlte play of the snmo name, produced i by W. P. Film Co.. Ltd., under the dlrec- . tion of J. B. Williams and A. W. Barnes with a cast of English players. At the George M. Cohan Theater. At the George M. Cohan Theater the W. P. Film Co., Ltd., of England is presenting a dialogue film tran scription of "White Cargo," which will be remembered as a prosperous but hardly elegant stage play of four or five seasons ago. Strangely enough, It has remained for a Brit ish producing company to trans plant its rather indelicate theme to the screen, for it has been no secret these many years that "White Car so" was one of the plays that was frowned upon by the guardians of movie morals on this side of the water. ' What its fate will be at the hands of censors in eommunities less toler ant of these things than New York is problematic. For it is more than plain that the talkie version of "White Cargo" is not without its, er, censorable moments. True enough the affair between the English rub ber trader and the bewitching mu latto girl Tondcleyo is no more objectionable on the talking screen than it was on a Broadway staee some seasons ago. but movie audi ences have been known to be a bit more squeamish about such matters. Still, aside from the censorship angle. "White ffargo" is hardly i picture of much importance. No more, as a matter of fact, than the stage play was important. It follows all too faithfully the lines of the original production, and as a purely mechanical reproduction of a stage play it forfeits any possible claim to cinematic excellence. You may or may not recall the plot aout the young and wholesome English chap who took up his duties on a West African rubber plantation and who had nothing but scorn I(V certain warnings that he would be licked like the others By African heat, damp rot and "mammy palaver." And then the brown skinned Tondeleyo came into Lang-ford's life and everything happened the way everyone but Langford was afraid it would happen. Let it be said in all fairness that "White Cargo" is rather effectively played by an all-English cast, the most prominent roles falling to Maurice Evans. Leslie Fabcr. Sebastian Smith and a youns: woman the program identifies as Gypsy Rhou-ma. But the direction, which is at, best indifferent, and the settings," which are terribly artificial, leave a Si-eat deal to be desired. Many better pictures have come nut of the British studios than "White Caego." At the Albce HIT THE DECK." a Radio Pictures version of the musical comedy slage success of the ?me title. Directed by Luther Reed. Featuring Jack Oakle and Polly Walker. Presented this wee& at the Albce Theater. Initially the dramatic comedy "Shore Leave"; next the stage mu A Pleasing Prospect With aro pretentious fanfare of - advance publicity, but with a list of names among its sponsors and players that bodes well for a production -of more than usual note, "Gala Night," the new Laurence Eyre comedy, will open at Erlanger's Theater tomonrow night. The play .was given final dress rehearsals today. "Gala Night." which is described as a sophisticated comedy of the backstage life of the Budapest opera, is produced by Hunter Williams, who is said to have given his initial Broadway venture a more-than-carcful casting and setting. The comedy has been directed by Edith Ellis, its settings designed by Joseph Mullen and Its Incidental muf lc and feature song composed by Mortimer Browning. The cast includes James Rcnnie, Beverly DICKSTEIN- melodrama, with stage coach holdupS, everything, has been conspicuous by the talkies, and so "The Lone Star week may be regarded as something addition of spoken dialogue does not in the action and panoramic outdoor sical version, "Hit the Deck"; later a silent "Hit the Deck" in celluloid, featuring Richard Barthelmess and Dorothy Mackail, and now William LeBaron's production with dialogue and song, featuring the popular Jack Oakie and Polly Walker. The thin plot of the musical com edy version should by now be well known to fans of both the legitimate and the movies. The offering at the Albee clings consistently to it, elaborating ionly where the additional scenic mediums of the screen may be utilized to advantage. It tells once more the story of the love of the young proprietress of a coffee-and-doughnut stand on the docks for a gob named Smith, of her ac quisition of wealth through the sale of an heirloom to buy him a freighter, and of her deeding the fortune to their first born when he will not wed her so long as she has money. Jack Oakle of the engaging grin is the particular Smith of her affections. Looloo of the coffee and doughnuts (Polly Walker), when unable to find him after their first meeting, succeeds through-a friend in having the commander of the Atlantic Fleet give a dance for all of the Smiths and finds him thereby. The picture is very much Looloo and not enough Jack Oakle, but it has packed the Albee since Saturday.- Perhaps the best part of the picture is the Hallelujah cherus, brought in by the visit of Looloo's maid, Lavina. to a spiritu alist. Marguerita Padula, as La vina, supplies most of the comedy and is disclosed as possessed of a pleasant singing voice. The music, by Vincent Youmans, is the same that was utilized in the stage pro duction. Franker Woods, Roger Gray and Harry Sweet do well with the footage allotted them as three of Looloo's gob friends, and George Ovey, aa Lavina's dark gob fiance,! commands some hearty laughs. a. nign spot the high soot of the excellent stage divertissement this week is the eccentric dancing of a young woman in Henry San-trey's troupe. Not billed on the program, she was introduced to last night's audience by Mr. Santrey as a Miss Elsie something-or-other that could not be distinguished from the rear or the orchestra. "Chasing Railbows" 'CHASING RAINBOWS." a Metro-Oold-wyn-Mayer production, directed by Charles F. Riesner. with Bessie Love. Charles Kins', Jack Benny, Marie Dressier. Polly Moran, Gwen Lee. Georfce K. Arthur. Nita Martan. and Eddie Phillips, presented at the Capitol Theater. "Chasing Rainbows," another "Broadway Melody," with variations, came to the Capitol Theater on Saturday, with Bessie Love again running off with the chief honors. and with Marie Dressier, the best comic of them all running her close second. Though "Chasing Rainbows ' was obviously designed to give Bessie Love the same opportunities she utilized so gloriously in "The Broad way Melody," and to catch the ten derness and humanity of that back stage opus, the new production is of a decidedly inferior stamp. Miss Love, as the little trouper who must constantly watch her stage partner fall in and out of love as often as a new face joins the .road show- gives a warm and exquisitely real performance, very similar to that role in the earlier production which Drougnt ner back to the front row of cinema. celebrities. She even re peats the hysterical scene in her dressing room which she made so pathetic in the older picture Charles King is appealing, and sings nicely as "in and -out of love aeain Terrle Fay, and the supportlne cast including Jack Benny, Polly Moran and Mane Dressier, do admirably. me trouble with "Chas ne Ra n- bows" is that the M.

Theater is to be equipped with devices enabling the deaf and hard-of-hearing to enjoy talking pictures. The apparatus has been designed by Charles H. Lehman. wlr!dv known for his work among the hard of hearing. In various sections of the theater ana in the loges the arms of cer tain designated seats will carry a small dox less than two inches square. A specially designed ear piece mounted on a convenient han die will be plugged into each box with the result that perfect clarity of tons will be achieved. A movable button on the handle of the ear piece makes it possible for the user to regulate the volume of sound to suit his needs. The new invention, obviously, will be a boon to those who, have been deprived the pleasure of enjoying talking pictures.
