E- C- Gantt, Manaeer C- J. Musselman, of Uxe Plaza. Theatre, expressed the hope this mornins that the public would not confuse the picture "'Here. Comes the Xavy," showing ar the Plaxa Saturday. Sunday and Monday, with some of the semi- cews-reel pictures that have o«en shown covering the activities of the- army and navy. This picture is a romantic comedy with a. naval setting, starring Warner Bro:/- ers best actors; James Cagney. GJoria Stuart and Pat O'Brien, all of whom need no introduction to theatre-goers of Paris. Chief among the comedians is Frank McHugh. he of the fanny laugh, who wins more laurels as he plays the para of a gob who Is always helpful, though some of his stunts prove rather unnsuaX for Instance; when he has the words and music of a song tattooed on his body so that a near-sighted singer may not expose her weakness. Three thousand railors, and the entire United States fleet, took part in the production of this picture, with the full approval of the secretary of the navy, that the picture might be authentic in every naval detail, and the locale ot the st*ry is on the battleship Arizona. '•Here Comes the Xavy" has been pronounced by the critics as something unusual in super-pictures a production that is entirely authentic as to locale and detail, yet onf. in which *.tory and action are {not subordinated to realistic pro} diction.
