The Ritz Brothers. Kenny Baker. Ella Logan. Audre Leeds and the Famous Goldvyn Girls This stunning musical film was released in 1&40 and our records fail to show that it has ever played here. There is "everything" in this delightful two- hour musical. Kenny Baker's tremendous voice, a fine story with comedy by Charlie and Edgar and by the Ritz Brothers. The musical backgrounds are beautiful beyond description. The new projection lamps now in use give new beauty to these color films. Sam Goldwyn, -who produced "The Best Years of Our Lives" and "The Pride of the Yankees." produced this one. "THE GOLDWYN FOLLIES" won the 1940 Academy Award. SUNDAY - MONDAY February 15 and 16 "MERTON OF THE MOVIES" —with Red Skelton and Virginia O'Brien Of all the screwballs, Red is perhaps the screwiest — but brother, he gets big pay for being that way. Red is a backwoods boy trying to break into the movies and the troubles he gets himself into are a riot. . . . Some people think Laurel and Hardy films are silly and those people may be right. And some think Red Skelton is too silly, but there must be thousands who don't think so, because they are turning out in large numbers to see "MERTON." For fun- lovers, here is something extra funny. This one will make you forget the cold weather and even the oil shortage. SUNDAY MATINEE AT 2:30 O'CLOCK P.
