Jm Nancy Carroll Seen In Emotional Role In Uhcat Belt Drama Nancy Carroll star of and will appear in an entirely different type of role today and tomorrow when comes to the Olympia Theater Those who have wanted to see Miss Carroll In a dashing emotional part will be pleased with her In this picture of modern life in America's wheat district as the gold-digging' manicurist who works hand-ln-hand with plotting salesmen of farm implements In putting over their deals with unsuspecting farmer propscets Much of the action takes place In a big hotel the rendezvous for wealthy farmers and tricky city folks Miss Carroll tries her bunco game on Phillips Holmes son of the wheat king of that region and later regrets her shameful trickery when she discovers that he loves her The play Is charged with dramatic dynamics and stirring emotional scenes Miss Carroll as the central starring figure has to carry much of the highly explosive burden of acting How she does it stamps her as an eminent genius in this type of role Nancy Carroll has become a motion picture star In less than two years after her screen debut because she Is fortunate In having the four requirements which make great actresses according to Edmund Goulding director of "The Devil's actress to become great must have Innate ability physique intelligence to acquire technique and experience necessary to acquire the says Goulding wM Conflict Stripped of Glory In Quiet On The Western By JEFFERSON BELL Quiet On the Western Universal's tremendous presentation of Erich Marla epic of the World war as seen from behind the German lines strips war of all Its glory and bares its sickening brutality with a tragic grimness that spares nothing and leaves the spectator shaken and speechless The picture cries aloud the futility of war the frightful wrecking and sacrifice of youth the debasing of human beings This picture which had its initial presentation last night at the Capitol Theater and will continue there during the coming week is a spectacle of carnage with marching ranks of men hurled in hopeless charges ghastly bodies on barbed wire reeking trenches vermin rats rattle of musketry rain of bullets from machine guns the ripping of flesh bombs smoke mud and unspeakable desolation against which the meager story Is woven The picture follows a group of schoolboys and a handful of men from the day these boys come radiant and burning with patriotic zeal from the school room to that last day when the last of them have been swept away In the holocaust More tragic than the maiming of young bodies the snuffing out of lives the pinch of hunger and hardship of battle is the dehumaning process through which they pass until all that is fine is burned away in the flame of war and only the brutal instinct to kill to be fed and to wrink is left The fear of youthful fighters and their sufferings in the hospitals after they are named and broken are depicted in great detail and the death agony of a French soldier who had leaped into a shell hole occupied by Paul Baumer and boys going mad from fear and horror are shown While the picture is elaborately photographed and shows wide areas of territory mutilated by war it does not depend upon that for its realism There is fine acting with men whose faces and names will never be separated from their characters Louis Wolheim is Katczinsky the commanding officer and comrade of his men John Wray is the despicable postman Himmel-stoss turned Into a tyrannical drill master Lewis Ayres is the sensitive high-strung Paul Baumer and Raymond Griffith is Gerald Duval Russell Gleason is Muller who steals his idolized boots after one leg has been amputated and Slim Summerville is the boastful Tjaden Ben Alexander is Kemmerer Mrs Baumer is portrayed by Beryl Mercer and is slightly out pf key with the rest of the cast Lewis direction is flawless and reveals his splendid sense of the dramatic He has given a truly great and moving picture which must profoundly impress the world The sequences in which the old schoolmaster Kantorek urges his students to go to war telling them that it is sweet and fitting to die for the fatherland and the later scene in young -Baumer worn and disil-goes back on sick leave and to talk to the students of war vivid and show the chafnged spirit of Baumer tell you anything you he said to the students live in the trenches out there We fight and try not to be killed but sometimes we are all And breaking out when he hears remonstrance he says: heard you here reciting your old stuff Making more iron men more young heroes You still think it is beautiful and sweet to die for your country you? Well we used to think you knew but the first bombardment taught us better dirty and painful to die for your country When it comes VAGASOND KIN ROt-rrA X'i i hORMA TALJviADQ TCNVt-R i ooy GARY CCOPE-R

at all I shouldn't have come up here on leave Up at the front alive or dead There we know lost and done for whether dead or The close is curiously tender and pathetic Baumer reaching out his hand to save a butterfly which had alighted on a log on the firing line is struck in the trench by a bullet His hand is all that Is seen as It moves then becomes limp In death A lull in the battle brings stillness and quiet to the western front French Spy German Wife Mix Love and Patriotism Mad is the first serious drama having a war background to bs made by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer since "The Big Basil Rathbone and Kay Johnson are In the lending roles In the attraction at the Hippodrome Theater This picture Is not concerned with actual scenes of warfare but plcts an interlude behind the German lines

great country like this should be dictated to in the matter of clothes by another country Certainly the American woman is the best dressed woman in the world In Paris all the most smartly dressed

or the styles of the gay nineties with the wasp-like waist and the leg of mutton sleeves that you wore in your last picture "The Floradora like both of Marion answered think the picturesque costumes of the girl of the gay nineties with the picture hats and long hair were unusually decorative The modest long skirts and narrow high heeled shoes gave her a feminine appearance that had Its advantages Yet she was uncomfortable I can vouch for that wearing a corset and narrow confining skirts And I think it would be difficult foi- the modern girl who is athletic and unused to tight corsets and hair pins to adopt the mode of the nineties "I said Marlon the freedom of short skirts the absence of flowing veils and bobbed hair without the annoyance of hairpins the styles sent out by the creators of
