We saw Weaver Bros., Arkansas travelers, years ago when we thought they They have added rubes, male and female, passable, more they 20 till have ruined the act. It's simply too much of a good thing 1 now. we had our suspicions, but the rainy Fourth forced us to the Call against better judgment, alohg with hundreds of disappointed celebration fans who had come to attend the big doings at the fair grounds but were lured to the theatre as the driest spot in town. And so the old. saying "It's an 111 wind," etc. Is true again, as far as the Call Is concerned. We haven't the heart to go into detail about Girl Habit.

TAKE THIS WOMAN, with the gaunt Gary Cooper and the lovely blond Carole Lombard heading an adequate but not unusual oa.st. i.« a great show. Not that it is an outstanding talkie so far as plot is concerned, but it is one of those intriguing things that follow the lines of least resistance to the ultimate satisfaction of the customer. The preview trailer says, edy. . A glance at the July calendar reveals some interesting offerings There seems to be a preponderance of domestic problem-shows, which, however, are welcome after gang wars and rackets. J UST WHY THE intelligent and glamorous Norma Shearer picked a story so beneath her talenta and those of her estimable co-partners, as A Free Soul is one of the mysteries of the screen. The thing starts out well, but it begins to wobble after the second reel and finally tottles to an uncertain end when "all is forgiven" and the brave Dwight Winthrop (Leslie Howard), who acts as if he had never held a gun before, shoots the mongrel gangster, Ace Wilfong (Clark Gable), is saved through the efforts of mocked convention, sneered at love, I the drunken lawyer (her father). till a. romantic roughneck said, <I Take This Woman'. Well, that's the plot in a nutshell. A rich society girl falls in love with a dla- mond-in-the-rotigh cowboy. Impossible, you say; yet the newspapers are full of such impossibilities every day. The only difference is that the superbly played by Lionel Barrymore, and is seen embracing the lovely Norma in the final fadeout. Believe it or not, this is a gangster picture, and Norma Shearer, with whom we have come to associate such brilliant performances as The Divorcee and Strangers May \.icl >. 4 uvr \ti u.v i.iij.ic*t.m-.v. *» tuti t ».»«v- _.._. — _ movie version "sticks" while the I Kiss, is the gangster's mistress. .

Helsell, Heisell & McCall, Ji'ort Dodge, and Peiser; & Soper of Kldoni were at- eys for the appellants. real thing busts up in Reno. Gary Cooper plays the best part in, his varied career, a studied, sincere .effort to portray his character without flourish or grandstanding. Carole Lombard, equally effective, makes an improbable incident seem real. A Florenx Ziegfeld screen interview in connection with this feature at the Greater Newman theatre in Kansas City lent much to the interest of the program. After all, Florenz ha« added something tangible to the eternal mystery, Woman, and has glorified IT. XJOTHING MORE PATHETIC i ' could have been offered this movie critic in the way of a homecoming treat than Charles Ruggles in CUr] Habit. After Charlie's Aunt What a plight! Lionel Barrymore gives the most outstanding performance of his cinematic career as the drunken criminal lawyer. It is the flash of Barrymore genius, unmistakable. Clark Gable turns in another excellent characterization as "Ace," the hardboiled underworld king, and his interpretation seems somehow to ring true. All the rest seems phony. While A Free Soul will bring the fair Norma no new screen admirers there seems to be no waning of popularity for this young woman. She occupies too firm a place as ah actress of what may be termed in movie circle, The New Sophistication whatever that is, to suffer from one poorly picked story. But let's have another Divorcee, Miss Shearer. HULSES RETURN FROM AUTO JAUNT IN EAST The H.6V. ami Mrs. C. V.
