(By Eleanor Fra»er) Miss Cmto asked me whether the picture version of the "Lone Wolf in Paris" follows the story, as written by Louis Joseph Vance (which we have agreed is well-written. I can't answer as to that, having for- goten It except that The Lone Wolf did reform. However faithfulness to the story may be, the moving picture is more than average In Itself. It is photographed carefully with an eye to beauty of composition and general effect. Frances Lederer makes a most acceptable Lone Wolf hero, Frances Drake the lovely lady, and there Is a support' ing cast of sufficient villainy in flp pearance. Another thing particularly pleasing in this picture is absence of over-pretentiousness. It is a Col' umbia picture, as is "Holiday." Columbia Pictures Corp. do not go In for splurge and super-splendor, perhaps because they may not have a several million a picture budget. But that is nil to the good. It l.o the same old Idea that restriction makes for better art. And It begins to seem that the public is somewhat satiated with unlimited magnificence. A super spectacle once In a blue moon Is a high spot in the ordinary run of life, but to b? regaled with an outslzed production every week or so—for don't forget that the average movie-goer attends pretty regularly—is too much for comfortable consumption, both mentally apd physically. So when one sees a good entertain- nunt that doesn't pretend to b<j a bit more than It '», one can really appreciate It, One aspect that was especially noticeable was an absence of Innumerable large size closeupx. It seemed to me that the picture was presented less personally, that Is. as though the producer had had a more detached viewpoint, that he had thought less of Impressing his future audiences and more of making a logical, smoothly flowing narrative In pictures. For example, I don't remember even one gigantic close-up of the entertainers in the floor show. Considering that they Were only an incident, unnecessary for the furthering of the plot, it was quite proper that they should not loom large In the scale of cinematography. They were seen from the viewpoint of the principals. But let it be said that they were well- photographed In an artistic arrangement of lights and shadow*. It really requires a foreigner to portray the role of the Lone Wolf, since he is continental In character and his life is laid largely In European cities. Hence, the choice of Francis Lederer Is a happy one. Not only is he a capable actor, but he is dark and handsome in a romantic way suited to one rescuing royal beauty In distress from villainous traitors. Jenkins is the valet to the Lone Wolf, the valet who reformed peforce when his master reformed but still given to active twinges of regret. There is a clever une sided telephone conversation ft-1 ween Jenkins iml hi:: n-'i'tcr, that tells I)],- whr.l» the picture does not follow the story. It Is undoubtedly a mistake for a. producer to change very radically a well-known and popular story but It Is still being done. The cast of "White Banners" Is excellent But the story as presented appears somewhat specious. Marjorie Phillip*, Ann* May and BHa Harr are spending the week vacationing at Clear Lake.

"Holiday" was made from the stage play of the same name written by Philip Barry. As usual, when a movie i.-t made from a good stage play—that is if the screen writers or tl.e director or some one else doesn't make hash of it—this movie play is good. It is not too long. It is well constructed and rather well edited, too. i Of ten one feels that one could do much better at the scissoring job than the person who is paid for it.' I can tell from the press book that some unnecessary scenes have been eliminated. There is something to be said for the photography, too. There are Ame closeup portrait.* of Katherlne Hepburn in conversation with Grant, which make her look positively beautiful. The coat is uniformly good, with Doris Nolan aa the lovely sister, Lew Ayres the disillusioned brother, and Edward Everett Horton and Birinie Barnes and Jfun Dixon for the le*ser comedy. Henry Daniell does well enough but has a miserable part. "Holiday" htfs plenty of moral to it. in whut seems to me a more palatable form than "White Banners." I am of two minds about the latter.
