Mrs •Ctiles will be remembered as Ruth TF YOU BELONG to that noble *• fcrmy of readers who disagree Violently with the views and opinions expressed ln % - "these here" columns, we beg indulgence. Have YOU ever taken the trouble to check up your own beet judgment with that of a half dozen friends regartllhg the merits of any talkie? Is there anything else in the whole wide world about which there are so many conflicting and contradictory notions as about the movies? Of course, .con'- cerning such trifles as the depresi sion, Hoover, prohibition, the tariff, etc., there is SOME disagreement, but compared with the vehemence with - which the average patron defends his or her sacred motion picture judgment the lead- Ing political questions of the day are so much chaff. And this IB an encouraging sign. j Nothing is so monotonous as continued agreements, We are'-faaj .becoming a race of yes-men and' jtes4 women, and it \a lucky, to have even so slender a branch as the talkies to climb out on. Because, after all, we do some fast thinking when we get out 1 on -the proverbial.' "limb," and thinking is one of the lost arts among the homo Americano. If you want to make us feel good, then just stop us on the street spme day and say, "That was a lousy review of The Guardsman." What you say will at least show that- you are reading this column and getting some good out of it. 'TVHERE HAS AL.WAYS- BEEN -i- something eiightly suggestive about the title of Zoe Akm's play,. The Greeks Had a Word For it; something savoring of jthe wdrld's oldest profession. The movie producers, with one eye on the censors and the other on the tender virtues and sensibilities of innocent patrons, have changed one word . and the thing appears under the name of The Greeks Had a Word For THEM, the ".them" in this case referring to' three gorgeous gold-diggers, as fair a trio of flowers' as ever graced a Grecian garden. When thus exhibit of feminine pulchritude, Ina Claire, Joan Blondell. and Madge Evanfi, first burst upon the scene the effect is almost breathtaking. It is to be doubted that. the movies have ever given patrons a bigger and more concentrated dose of optical beauty than the spectncle of these three gorgeous femmes decorated in gowns designed by Mile. 3abrielle Chanel, who was summoned to Hollywood solely for the purpose. The action is swift, sporty, sophisticated, the humor ribald, raucous, Rabelasian, and the plot bas to do with the adventures (or misadventures) of the class of working women who "work" men. Jean (Ina Claire) takes\ the leading role (V), stealing the admirers of both Polaire (Madge Evans) and Schatze (Joan Blondell) ; but she finally succumbs to the lure of her "profession" by doffing her wedding drees at the moment of her nuptials and departing for Paris in her underwear with her two companions. Yes, there is food here for greedy censors, for nothing else quite so revealing has been shown on the silver screen; and the _ production is lavish in its lure and beauty, which only makes it the more offensive, we suppose, to the so-called guardians of public morals. The cast is uncommonly well-balanced; we have already spoken of the charm of the. three young women in pardonable (we trust) praise. David Manners and Lowell Sherman play the male leads in a creditable way. Bu,t after all, this is strictly a man's show, and viewed only from iin "apparel" point of view (we just can't get away from business!) it should make every male a connois- eur of the 1532 styles for women. • The Embroidery club meets nex /week Wednesday with the president -9frs.,'Nels Mitchell.

He continues to suffer severe jjain In the head and one leg. The jfloctors advised an operation on the spells horrible death to Its occupants. If you belong to that category of thrlll'seeklng humans then here's the'show for you. Rome in its palmiest days never staged a spectacle so sublimely terrible and ghastly ae some of the sequences In The" Crowd Roars. . Now that we've got that out 'of our system, we may pause, in quiet reflection, to consider the' slender thread of narrative which cements this orgy of the race-track together. Jamee Cagney has a weakness for wine and women, but is obsessed With the notion that his younger brother (Eric Llnder) ehall keep clear of both. So when a siren (Joan Blondell) makes a play for the brother Jamps (what, a man!) throws her carelessly through a doorway; but not till after his mistress (spurned, at that) has soundly slapped his face. Just what happens to the two young women is not quite clear at the end. Perhaps in the excitement of the grand finale (an actual scene at the " Indianapolis Speedway races) no one gives a darn—which was our own' reaction. But don't-be^: misled. You'll never, see more thrilling auto races ;for, 40c; nor from a'better vantage point for ten times as much. So there you are, readers; you "pays your money and takes your choice." S OME WEEKS AGO, this critic received a-hasty notice from the operator at the Call that Man-, aged Rice had sent a film to Algona for inspection and wae desirous of our unerring judgment. So, innocently enough, we dropped our work for an hour and previewed The Unexpected Father, featuring tha,t sour-faced bean-pole, Slim Summer- vine, assisted by Zazu Pitts and Cora 'Sue Collins. And our somber and unbiased opinion of this alleged melee of mirth was that It is one of the worat attempts at comedy that has graced the local silver screen In a coon's age. We .told Manager Rice the sad tale in all frankness; but, resourceful as ever, he promptly set the picture in as part of a Saturday double-header, which rather took the edge.off the-curee—or accentuated it, whicheVer you prefer. CROWD ROARS is a roarln' talkie, there isn't any" doubt about that. If you can sit through an hour and a half of almost incessant noise of the most nerve-racking variety ranging from frenzied cheers of thousands of I'acing fans to the drum-drum-drum of motor exhausts, you needn't see a. doctor for at least six months. And if the strain of a Barney Oldfield is tremendous when he is seated at the wheel of a racing chariot, then the nervous tension of the spectator in a comfortable theater chair watching proceedings is almost as great. Perhaps, however, you are one of those morbid mortals who enjoy the sight of a powerful automobile hurtling over or through a fence, leaving death and destruction in its wake and ending up in a cloud of dense, black, gaseous smoke which L AW AND ORDER, with Walter Huston, was the other half of the program, and it is fully as bad, if not infinitely worse in spots. It is "meller-drammer" in its mellowest and ripest form. Walter has now struck the cellar; nothing lower in plot or Election could be conceived. There were times in the action of this halting yarn of the old gun-toting days in the'West when we felt actually insulted: witness the scene in which the young' prisoner condemned to be hanged by the neck is comforted with the noble thought expressed by Huston that his is to be the first formal execution in that county and that therefore he should feel honored Instead of depressed. In all our experience with the cinema, nothing more asinine, nothing more disgustingly moronic has ever been done on ,the screen than this public hanging. To think that an actor of Mr. Huston's talent and ability should ever sink so -low as to take part in such a completely worthless production as Law and Order baffles the imagination. It is simply cheap, trite, prostituting the noble art of acting to its lowest possible level. Is it an unkind fate that the largest audience in months jammed the Call till almost midnight to see these ceremonies, or did the good customers depart with the feeling that they had got their money's worth? After all, the public, not the feelings of one cynical movie critic, is to be considered, and perhaps, paraphrasing the French, "500 movie fans can't be wrong." O NE OF THE MOST important premiere in all motion picture history took place in New York City last week, when the screen version of Grand Hotel opened at the Astor, and mounted police rode up the sidewalks of Broadway trying to cope with an army of frenzied fans fighting to gain admission to the theater. Grand Hotel w'ill probably not be seen in Algona for many moons, since it opens in legitimate playhouses this week In Chicago, Des Moinee, and probably other cities, which means that prices will be boosted beyond the limit of the smaller theaters throughout the land. Tiu,t it promises to be an even greater success than the stage production we saw at Chicago several months ago. With a big four headliner cast, John and Lionel. Barrymore, Greta Garbo, and Joan Crawford, it sets a new standard for cinema entertainment.
