Specifically, he a happy marriage for one of the Maxwell daughters and carved for another a successful career on the stage. All this has been reproduced witii reasonable fidelity on the screen, but one cannot escape the impression that "That's Gratitude" is now less satisfying comedy than it was On the stage. Its producers have chosen simply to bring us a photographed copy of the giving no thought to such things as the broader scope of the camera and Its consequent opportunities for more imaginative handling. The result Is a photoplay which, while it embodies an amusing idea, falls sort of being good screen entertainment because of its monotony. Besides Mr.

'The Age of Innocence," has been transplanted to the talkies, and at the Albee Theater this week offers entertainment pf a polite and engaging, If nwer a very exciting kind. A romantic drama of o'd New York Cits time is the 80's), it Is interesting mainly for the nostalgic charm of its Victorian costumes and settings. Less stimulating Is Its placid story of New-land Archer, who married a girl he didn't love because his marriage to a divorcee would be considered a on the family honor. It is, in its routine way, a iciiuuiiHi tuve story wnicn Deion as easily to today as to the elega it eighties. And Philip Moeller, who was borrowed from the Theater Ouild, has failed to endow it with any particular directorial originality.
However, there are good per formances by John Boles, as th3 unhappy hero; Irene Dunne, as beloved Countess Olenska, and Helen Westley, who Is seen at her best here as the amusing and lovable Granny Mingott.

THE CAST Sally Moore Jean Parker Jimmie Flaherty James Dunn Joan Una Merkel Qua Stuart Erwln Schauber Wiliard Hoberlion Dr. Spear Samuel Hinds Joe Paul Pate Helen Muriel Evaiie Mrs. Kelly Kate Price Mrs. Abrahams Pepi Slnoll A Janet Gaynor picture without Janet Gaynor is "Have a Heart," current at the Brooklyn Fox, and overflowing with sentimentality and hokum. But like all program pictures from Hollywood, the story does not matter much; for Hollywood Is passingly wise in rouging the obvious and the trite with clever acting and smooth direction.
Jetui Parker has the Gaynor part; pkying a girl crippled on the eve of her wedding day, and abandoned by the intended bridegroom. This is a story that smells of the studio, you can see, but it is rather pleasantly told. Let us continue with the plot. Forced to give up her Job as a dance teacher, Sally that is, Miss Parker makes dolls at her home. Jimmy that name usually means James Dunn, and it doe here is the unofficial Santa Claus to the neighborhood children.
He is a peddler of ice cream pops, have-a-heart sticks, and when the poorer children cant pay well, big hearted Jimmy treats. Sitting by her window and sew ing all day, Sally soon meets Jimmy, soon falls in love. She Is afraid of his reaction when he should learn that she is crippKd but his feelings remain the same after he learns her leg is mangled. Sally has saved up for an operation to straighten her leg, when Jimmy is unjustly accused of stealing $400 from his firm. To save him from Jail, Sally takes most of her operation money and gives it to the boss.
On learning of her sacrifice, accuses Sally of believing him guilty and rushes away, vowing never to return. But don't fear, children, this is noi life, this is the movies. The real thief is caught, Sally's leg is corrected, Jimmy is promoted, and tender-hearted cinemaddicts have had a good cry. Those sterling and ever-dependable comedians or rather, comedian and comedienne Una Merkel and Stuart Erwln, brighten this placid tale with bright wise-cracks and dead-pan humor. Eddie Peabody and A Banjo, spell that in capital letters, headline the stage show.
The Four Flash Devils do some shuffling and stamping with hot Harlem heels. The Bill Powers Girls, Brem Fitz and Murphy Brothers, Henry Youngman and the Charles Stein Orchestra complete the stage bill. L.S. the Day 1IACCI1N; Concert of the National Orchestral Association.

Mozart's minor Concerto did not have the tragic Intensity which it had in the performance of Toscanini and Iturbi last year; instead it sighed and fluttered which is what most people think Mozart should do. as a result of hearing him played that way. And portions of the Allegro movements of the Beethoven concerto also sighed and fluttered.
True, other portions had the rug-gedness and sturdiness which Beethoven should have; but the essential quality rt a work must be maintained in every detail, and Beethoven's ruggedness and sturdiness should have been felt even in the quieter passages. The slow movement, however, Mr. Gabrllo-witsch played superbly with deeply poetic feeling. And his silvery legato was exquisite in the slow movement of the Bach Concerto, the most consequential movement of one of Bach's less consequential works. In the Mr.
Gabrll-owiLsch and the orchestra rattled along cheerfully with the music. Mention should be made of the cadenzas which Mr. Gabrilowitsch played in the Mozart and Beethoven Concertos. They were alien to the rest of the music and poor stuff in themselves. Misclia Weisbord and a Spanish Dancer Mischa Welsbord, a young Russian violinist who made his New York debut in the Winter of 1926, made his first appearance here since that season yesterday -afternoon in Town Hall, with Stuart Ross as the accompanying pianist.
The program offered Cesar Franck's sonata, Bach's unaccompanied prelude and fugue in minor, Lalo's "Symphonic Espagnole" and shorter pieces by Dvorak-Krelsler and Wieniawski. Mr. WeUbord impressed as an earnest an 1 well-equipped musician, although he did not always seem to be at hi', best In yesterday's recital. His tone was of likeable quality, bat the interpretative breadth needed to meet the extremely taxing demands of the Bach work for violin alone or the emotional resources of the Franck sonata was sometimes lacking. There was a good-sized and very cordially disposed audience.
Before a large audience Clarita Martin gave her first New York dance recital last night at Town Hall, devoting the program to Spanish dances accompanied by Romeo, Albeniz, de Falla, Forbes and Sopena and popular tunes from various parts of Spain. Salvador Ibanez, guitarist, and Louis Laugh- lin, pianist, were the assisting artists, placing solos In addition to accompaniments. While American born, Miss Martin has studied the Spanish dance both ifi Havana and in Spain and her work last night revealed the results ov very good training and intelligent understanding of the types of Hispanic dance represented on her program. This wbs supplemented by notably effective use of the castanets and well chosen costumes contributing to the atmosphere of the evening. There was much enthusiasm and a call for repetition of several of the numbers.

Reading it, one concludes that Coward must have written it in a hurry to catch a deadline or something. Certainly Its flimsy texture marks it as one of Coward's lesser masterpieces. All of which serves ortly to emphasize how great a star Yvonne Printemps must be to shine so brightly in the latest Coward creation. She's a delight as much a delight in her individual way as is Lucienne Boyer "Conversation Piece" is exceedingly well staged and mounted, which helps, too.
And Coward, of course, even in his less brilliant offerings, manages to come through with this worthwhile thing and that, nevertheless. Like his "Regency Rakes" quartet in which the roistering roues, sing, "We're Regency Rakes and each of us makes a personal issue of adipose tissue; But still, notwithstanding, our stomachs' expanding, we all yearn for romance. We frequently start affairs of the heart." And so gaily onward. CRACKPOT-POURRI James K. McGuinness Is writing AMUSEMENTS MANHATTAN Opening TOMJGHT at 8:4.

It has been a matter of regret for many years that Mr. Gabrilowitsch has preferred to be an undistinguished conductor rather than a very distinguished pianist, allowing his repertory to become quite moth- Sumner, Sumner Ave. and Qulncy St. Roltdoi Orummoad strikes Bstk; Ones ts Every Bathalsr CANARSIC Canarale, Ave. and E.

mm wi the audience that filled the Town Hall it apparently was a cause for rejoicing that he is again giving enough time to the piano to learn these concertos once more, and one may judge from Saturday's concert to perfect his playing of them. It is a pity, therefore, that Mr. Gabrilowitsch did not have an orchestra playing with him that could produce sounds as beautiful as the sounds he produced on the piano; for at Umes the discrepency was disturbing. The pity is all the greater since in other respects the collaboration of orchestra and pianist was admirable. It was evident that the performances were the result of careful rehearsal in which unanimit- of purpose had been achieved, and at the concert Mr.
Barzin had the orchestra well In hand, so that It dotted every one of Mr. Gabrilowitsch' l's and crossed his t's. The unanimity went even further: under Mr. Bar-ztn's direction the orchestra gave Mozart the same character as Mr. Gabrilowitsch gave it.
Which brings us to the matter of interpretation and style. Mr. Gabrilowitsch played with his own highly personal, romantic style a HOTELS AND RESTAURANTS Ifl H', 4 'ClV LONG FOREST HILLS Inwood, Metropolitan, nr. iWnn A. Hue of Rnthsrhlhl and Their Big Moment JAMAICA Jamaica, St.
