H. A LETTER PROM A western critic! muses on the futility of this meditation over our current films. What Is It but the spectacle of the "fly on the chariot wheel?' he asks. There are times, 'tis true, when we ateo ponder lugubriously over-the utter uselessness of empty words of commendation and condemnation and give up to the hopelessness of it. And yet how eagerly we cling to these diversions, these hobbies, these moments of relaxa*- tion which make life worth the effort. To toil day by day with ho thought but of the newest styles In woman's apparel, to think day and night only in terms of dollars and cents, would be a dream too hbrrlble to contemplate. Some play golf, others plant gardens, some even fish, that the world • of .material things may not engulf them. And so we turn to our youngest and most modern of arts, the cinema, and philosophize on the weaknesses-and' foibles of mankind. Futile, yes; but no more so than a hundred kindred pleasures with which /moderns , 'have ' surrounded themselves that their days'may be happy and endurable. Which reminds us that a History of the Movies has just appeared in book form, a rather momentous tome of 456 pages written by one Benjamin Hampton, retailing for $5. It is a comfortaing thought that someone else Is employing his time on so menial a task as reviewing the progress of motion pictures. In the light of this work, then, we consen- trate ourselves anew to the -task of bringing to readers of this enlightened sheet of wisdom these weighty reviews of cinema's latest offerings. And life rolls merrily on. / T HE MOVIES ARE FUNNY: •they produce a "hit" like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and right away we' have another dual-personality talkie v with. : the. same ..star. When Arthur Drake' (Fredric March) takes three drops of medicine for his weak heart, we almost expect him to change into a. demon, a monkey, or rabbit. Fortunately, this transformation fails to materialize. '• Strangers in Love is taken from an almost forgotten story -by William J. ILocke. It has no literary value, but it works up into a rather entertaining talkie, due to the efforts of a capable cast' and adequate direction. If there is criticism which might be leveled at this talkie it is that the audience is almost as much at sea as the characters in the play are supposed to be. Arthur Drake le a scoundrel who conveniently topples over dead while lie is talking with his ne'er-do-well brother (also portrayed by Mr. March). The brother exchanges clothes with the corpse, and replaces his brother. When his secretary comes and announces that they will begin work "where they left off yesterday," complications begin. They are further tangled through the efforts of Stuart Erwin, erstwhile pal of the Imposter brother. The best scene is the one in which Stuart recovers a check from a blackmiiling siren by feigning an accident, gaining admittance to her room, and smuggling it out of her purse. This fellow Erwin is one of the screen's most baffling characters, always convincing, completely natural in any role he essays, yet In personality an almost negligible quantity. As Time stamps him (in Time's concise way), he is "memorably forgettable." , • ' •The usually sleek: Kay Francis has gained a few-pounds of avoirdupois, which becomes lier not so well; in fact, this rather attractive young woman shows herself to poor advantage in Strangers In Love, though her work has the quiet charm of subtillty, for which she has gained considerable favorable comment and popularity. If you are in search of a good average show, you-won't go wrong with this. IITE STOOD IN LINE In front of • » the Illinois theater box office an hour one cold, blustery night last winter, trying -to get a ticket for Elizabeth, The Queen, featuring those distinguished actors, Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fountanne, but our efforts were unsuccessful. The house was "sold out." A scene from this stage production opens the cinema presentation of The Guardsman and introduces the -two most popular Theater Guild stars to Mr. and Mrs. Movie Audience. There ; is something auspicious about the appearance on the screen of these personalities not unlike that of George Arliss in Disraeli. Out of the vast army of stage stars who have trekked westward in search of fame and fortune, these two stage vehicles are perhaps the only ones which have been transferred to' the screen with the charm, the finesse, the glamour of. the original version. In this particular The Guardsman may be called one of the real triumphs of . the' talkies. In fact, of its kind, frank, unmitigated •farce, it may be said to be the finest thing ever produced irt the movies. ... . The plot is trite enough, revolving around the suspicions of an actor•husband concerning his actress- wife. He disguises himself as a guardsman and makes advances. With each sign of encouragement, he Is saddened; with every rebuff, elated. The audience Is never quite certain whether the wife recognizes her husband, though when he bows the first time they meet she leans over and smells his hair in a sigr niftcant manner. It develops, finally that she has known all along, which Is made more forcible by the fact that a debtor Who comes to collect a bill also recognzes the disguise and twits the crestfallen Guardsman about It before his wife. The careful and studied manner- Isms and oratory oMmnt and Foun- tanne lend themselves easily to a farce situation, and the thing seems almost plausible in the hands of these distinguished stars. The pair man and wife in real life, seem perfectly matched in screen appearance. Perhaps the plausibility arises from the fact that for once producer and director have been content tp' give the reigning principals a free hand in the way of expression and action. When the irate Lunt smacks the posteriors of his wife's two maids, as he catches them eavesdropping, the action seems natural, though we can think of no one else woo could do Jt eo "srttetically." Jmagine Clarfc GaWe attempting it. We fcelieve |Jd- ward fi. Roblhson consummated it once with hla too In Little Caesar. So we congratulate Metro-Qoldwyn- Mayer (producer) and Sidney Franklin (director) for giving the team of Lunt-Fountanne a real "break" In their Initial cinema appearance. We congratulate the stars themselves for excellent performance; and we add a word for the supporting cast, Roland Young, Zasu Pitts, and • Maude Eburne, who make the acting of' Lunt and Fpun-« tanne doubly, effective. ' •The Guardsman Is strictly-a ;sophisticated bill of fare, and Its success In the, smaller, rural communities will be an indlcatl&n as Time saye, "of the general public's Increasing familiarity with caviar."- 'T'HEY PLAYED a dirty trick on A the dreamy-eyed, diminutive Marlam Hopkins when they handed her the role of lOC-a-dance-glrl In Dancers In the Dark. After seeing her splendid iWork.ln Dr. Jekyll,and. Mr. Hyde, some flashes we get . of her in this hodge-podge of the un- demorld.-.are-'positively • a.wful; y In fact there are two 'or three 'ciose'-upe Which take the blue ribbon for artistic unattractlveness. This show is the third of a series of double-headers for the month. We didn't make the mistake of seeing Dancers in the Dark AFTER Skippy, so we are In our right mind and this criticism Is made with faculties intact. And, also, we attended with a decided preference for the little .lady who gave such a stellar performance with Frederic March In Jekyll-Hyde. But, alas, we must chronicle the fact that this Is a cheap, trashy, melodramatic flapdoodle hardly, worth time or money. However, as a bargain offering with Skippy and Air- Mail Mystery, perhaps we shouldn't be too hard on the program as a whole. ,. . . Jack Oakie gives a rather colorful ppirtrayal ; of. a, jazz, ijband ^leader.who tries'* to "chisel" (there's a new'word for our vocabulary) 'on his pal by sending him -away, to Pltteburghmnd then makes. up.;to;hls_girt.,. "'• .llhtoK.-; tunately, however,-the pal shows up a day before he is. ..expected,;.' stir-- prises Jack and the girl (Marlam Hopkins) in almost a compromising position, and: thereby- precipitates trouble. There are more "angles" to this picture than Hoover remedies for the depression;'but- when all the shootin' (and shoutln') is over, all's well that ends well, , and you go home to thank heaven you're not an operator who has to look at the darn thing five or six times. Thus there are still advantages • in being just a spectator, able to walk out when the going gets too bad. The photography of the dance hall scenes is excellent, but the direction is sloppy. So we'll give Dancers in the Dark a "fair" rating, and we will add by way of consolation that the average at the Call has been away above par for several weeks now. i St. Joe Mi\ and Mrs. Ernest Gales drove to Minnesota late last week to be with Mrs. Gale's mother, who te sick.
