At the Call Theatre A Review of the Recent Talkies by T.H, C, S TRANGER IN- TOWN Is one of those Inocuoua cinema flap- doodles which defy all laws of criticism. You go expecting to be disappointed and come away disappointed that you found so trivial an offering to your liking.

Yet they showed excellent judgment when they loaded their Qimsjwith sly satire In^place of the \isual tactless 'VenbmV 'For the first 'time, in his screen experience, "chic" rjcharlesr Sale has a,' part just suited to his peculiar talents— a semi-bur- lesqlie-type old man whose exaggerated characterization fits each and every situation. When he hitches up his pants for the oncoming battle in Stranger In Town you are ready for the fray with him. The plot Is simple enough. We see Sir. Sale in the opening reel as a young man, sans make-up, who comes West In a covei'ed wagon and transport the spectator to .some mysterious, unknown Fate.

We see him next, 50 years later, running his little, old-fashioned grocery store. His granddaughter (Ann Dvorak) meets a stranger on the train, who proves to be the new manager for the X-Y-Z chain grocery. How the old man beats the "chain" with the aid of a young man who resigns from his managership provides a thrilling climax to this homely, simple tale of rural business life. David Manners plays his usual unemotional role; he is our. idea of the zero of actors. Noah Beery is excellent in his character part as sheriff. Stranger in Town belongs to the same category as 'Lightnln 1 on the stage. Its success depends entirely on the "human Interest" element and on individual characterizations of actors. In such plays minor pieces of stage "business" contribute much to the performance, as for example, when Chic opens and closes his old-fashioned watch the lid of which squeaks audibly. Two unusually excellent two-reel comedies completed a good Sunday show at the Call and sent a happy and contented audience home. S EVENTY-THOUSAND witnesses ushers in the fall football season at the Call; but it does more than this—it uncorks a thrilling mystery murder, thereby combining the tenseness and the uproar of a crucial football game with interest and anxiety in solving a cold-blooded murder. what is a manager to do? The plot has.to do with a professor (Buster Keaton) who, believing he has inherited a fortune, promptly goes out to "see life," gets mixed up with a stranded musical comedy troupe, and eventually, by a series of comic Interruptions and intrusions Into the cast, puts the show over. Jimmy Durante (Schnoozle' contributes mos^of the cleaner comedy and really saves the picture Thelma Todd, gorgeous in face and figure, exhibits her anatomy with i reckless abandon almost breath taking. She is lovely In a brief black lace teddy; but is the movie the. place to display such expanses of ex—epidermis? We might etand for an occasional picture like Speak Easily, but if It represents a "trent of the times," then we say, along with the rest of the moral crusad ers, clean-up the talkies!

And is more auspicious than Charles Ruggles as drunken newspaperman and radio announcer. Here is Charley at hia best. Complaining of a draught in the newspaper broadcasting booth, he begs listeners to pardon him while he puts down the window. Then, taking a large swig from his bottle, he resumes, "There, it's down!" And when he is invited to dinner with the detective, who tells him that his wife is "having some relatives for dinner," he says, "Well, I've never tried them, but I can stand it if you can."

W INNER TAKE ALL gives James Cagney an opportunity to do the thing he does best—supplies him with dialog natural to his peculiar talents and offers a hodge-podge of love and prize-fighting neither good nor distressingly poor. When he boots his faithless sweetheart in the posterior, in the final reel, he does t with a neatness and precision vhich has a distinct artistic value. She has it coming, and this little entleman knows just how to do it. So the accounts are balanced. We see the youthful James first as a cauliflower-eared prize-fighter whose heart has gone bad on him (it continues uncertain throughout the show). His manager (Guy Kibbee) sends him to New Mexico to recover. There he meets an erstwhile cabaret singer (Marian Nixon) who is nursing her little boy (Jackie Moore). He helps her when insurance money fails to arrive by staging a prizefight, and they fall in love. When James returns to "big time" he forgets his desert sweetheart and takes up with a baby-faced blonde (Virginia Bruce) who has acquired only a thin veneer of culture. When she double-crosses hml, he kicks her artistically in her cabin (pardon; she is sailing for Havana), following which he goes back to his first love with easy nonchalance. Marlon Nixon seems badly miscast as cabaret singer, but Virginia Bruce has a part exactly suited to her talents. You feel instinctively that she is bored, yet there is, in the youthful prize-fighter, a lure she is unable to resist. She eventually falls victim to the thing that seems to Intrigue her most—Cagney's caveman tactics. It is amazing that the theme song of Monte Carlo, Beyond the Blue Horizon, is here introduced with such poignant effectiveness, as a speeding train carries Cagney to his desert sanitarium. This is the one musical selection which seems never tp grow old a»a always seew to ally crosses the goal line, where a also ma a e v j s it s at Oakdale and Des volley of footballs is emptied .and Moines.

They are all typical Marxian, as when Groucho says, in the class-room, "The Lord Alps those that Alps themselves." And the situations are ridiculous to the extreme, as when this same Groucho throws the drowning girl a candy life-saver. Chico plays a comedy selection on the piano while Zeppo contributes a harp rendition of the theme song. •Horsefeathers is the Alpha and Omega of slapstick comedy, a riot of asininities, a cyclone of senseless burlesque and mimicry, the swiftest, craziest entertainment ever offered the dear public. In contrast to Speak Easily, some of the lines and situations may be a trifle Off-color, but "the tempo to which .the action and dialog in Horsefeathers is. speeded up takes away the curse of- suggeetiveness.

In colonial days, when people took 'their politics seriously, the whispering campaign frequently led up to bloodshed,- It was the cause of the duel : between Burr and Hamilton. President Andrew Jackson shot and killed , a man guilty of this crime. But those guilty of the, offense are seldom reached by punishment or the law, because of the underhanded and dirty methods used* to carry on the campaign. The conspirator usually selects some worthless character In the community, without social or financial standing, to spread the poison; one who, while not a social outcast, Is known to have a diseased mind, in his desire for publicity. If a victim gives him a horse-whipping, or beats him up, the victim disgraces himself. To »ue such a character would be a joke. While this political moron spreads the poison, the instigators sit back and watch ready to drop out of the scene In case their poison does -not take, or to fan the flame in case it does.

For some unknown reason, this fall's campaign seems to have raised a special crop of these scandal mongrels, who have centralized their efforts on my office. I find their work in practically every town in :he county, and they have spread their poison systematically and with vicious intent. I care nothing about gossip or rumor; also it is understood that the acts of public pfficials are always open t6 discussion and criticism by the public; but no person has right to attack another and wrongfully accuse him of acts of which he is not guilty, especially through the underground channels of "the whispering campaign."
