Oh! that my feet were on the path That girds the' wooded Knock, That my eyes could feast upon the Strath And gaze towards far Lednock. From Knock's cone strewn paths I see Ben Vorlich, towering clearly, Whilst in the air the hum of bees, Comes floating to me clearly. For Ochtertyre I often sigh, And its russet glory, Its trees and lochs delight the eye, And wild fowl tell its story.

Loretta Young, Tyrone Power, and Adolphe Menjou are the leading players in Cafe Metropole," an impersonation comedy, which is the principal feature to 'be shown at Crietf Cinema on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. It is the polished story of a penniless young American who, to redeein debt of honour is constrained by creditor maitre of a luxurious Parisian hotel, to impersonate Russian Prince, and make love to heiress.

Compli- cations of conflict of real love with conscience, intensifled by existence of real Prince as one of maitre's waiters, provide piquant comedy of situation and character, rather than dialogue. Beautifully controlled performance from Adolphe Menjou, as suave maitre, cleverly exploiting emotional cross purposes to own financial ends, and grand study by Gregory Ratoff in superb princely arrogance amenable 18 monetary mollification. Able young leads depicting male impersonation embarrassment and vivacious feminine determination: good supports from sturdy father and slyly humorous woman friend.

It is an adaptation of Thorn Smith's story descriptive of adventures of married couple after death, and their attempt to achieve good deed which will mean release.

Three car crashes contribute somewhat repetitive action, highlights with: brilliant trick photography as real star of production. It has light-hearted dialogue, elaborate staging, and amusing characterisation. Piquant climax, intriguing restaurant' scenes, generous quota of laughs, moments of music and POmance, and light-hearted portrayals, with Roland Young scoring as henpecked banker, COMEDY ATTRACTIONS MONDAY, TUESDAY Continuous Performance, Cafe Tyrone Power and Few of the Season's Comedies, if gaiety and sparkling wit.

Attractive which should make a strong appeal to all patrons, are announced for next week, and in one at least a popular star makes a welcome reappearance. On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, the principal picture is "For You Alone." musical film, with Grace Moore in the leading role. The -story concerns an Australian opera star, who is foreed to leave America when her passport expires. Going to Mexico in a desperate attempt to manoeuvre her way back in order to sing at an important festival, her schethe through. Through mutual love of music she meets Jimmy Hudson, played by Cary a two-fisted, hard-drinking American artist, though neither is aware of the other's identity.

Jimmy's contempt for the star is frequently expressed to her, still unaware that he is speaking to' the object of his contempt. Louise, the prima donno, is informed that she will be unable to enter America for a year, and a crafty lawyer suggests as a solution, that if she were married to an American she could enter the country immediately. So Louise and Jimmy are married. The irony of it appeals to the artist; Louise thinks only of the conventence. They part almost at once, however, but their paths are intertwined, and they eventually solve their difficulties, "and the end is reached in conventional fashion.

Grace Moore sings several songs in her delightfal style, which will captivate the audience, while Cary Grant is as effective as ever. As a supporting feature, "Secret Patrol," based on a stirring story by Peter B. Kyne, should make a strong lis theme is life in the Canadian Mounted Police, and an exciting man hunt in which they take part, provides excellent material. Charles Starrett is the star. At the end of the week, "The Edge of the World," one of the greatest pietures of the year, is the principal attraction.

It is the sory of the island of Foula, and has a cast almost entirely Scottish. It tells of the tenacity of a small colony of humble, island dwellers, clinging to this place which has been theirs for generations -jealous of their isolation. proud of the grim struggle for life with the savage sea. But slowly the sea has worn them down, breaking even their hardy spirits. A note of defeatism is beginning to creep into the little.

colony, a note strenvously opposed by Peter Manson, the elder, who upholds the stern tradition of -independence. The ragic story slowly unfolds itself, working up to a terrific climax, in which the acting is a splendid feature. Miall Magginness and Belle Chrystell are the stars. Supporting fare is of excellent quality, and "Anything for a Thrill" has.a first-rate story to commend it. Coinedy and' general interes jems complete the programmes.
