O. Henry employed it years and years ago, and many of our famous writers have used it repeatedly in short stories and novels. It consists simply of a central theme with frequent flash-backs, not always in time_-sequence, of vicissitudes in the lives of the characters of the story. Thus in The Power and the Glory, we start with the funeral of the central character, then hear from the lips of his private secretary as he tells it to his wife, the various events in the life of this light and catchy, and the plot breez-' railroad president. This is Narr- the "wings of a hurricane. Some of the women of the ensemble, thrown in, we suspect; for pulchritude rather than ability to sing or talk, are beautiful, and they add to rather than detract from the show.

As we have remarked before, Mr. Robinson has an^aljno'st perfect record of screen-aejtiieve'ments, and the present production adds another. 'I Loved a Woman gives authenticity to .'the theory that tremendous ..and. powerful ambition and sexual, potency are closely akin. A secondary theme is somewhat more generally accepted, i. e., man's greatest achievements must come through woman's inspiration and encouragement. With these two powerful motives, is it any wonder that, a trio of such recognized talent-as Mr. Robinson, Kay Francis, and Genevieve Tobin bring us a noteworthy production? Of more than passing interest also is the locale of Athens, which hints vaguely that I Loved a Woman is the biography of one of our own ex_-f£nanciers at present "doing time" in that far-off country, rt'.i, The scandals of packers are aired with a rather sensational candor which gives the picture a moving and impelling forcefulness. When you come to think of it, here is a production with so many threads of interest and character- shading that it all .but bewilders the average talkie customer. There is, for example, the wife, played all too convincingly by Genevieve Tobin, who is too- interested in philanthropy .to rise to the heights with her husband — a somewhat common error of some wives. And witness the ease with which, then, the Other Woman, expertly played by the dark, alluring 1 Kay Francis, The recital of events and the final climax are simply and truthfully presented, with no idea of moralizing, which is in itself an achievement, especially in our talkies where "morality plays" are one way of getting around the watchful censors. The Power and the Glory is Colleen Moore's trimphal comeback to the screen, and the little star faces her,task with a determination and a courage which are commendable. Her characterization is much more sincere than that of Mr. Tracy, who somehow seems too aware of his wrinkles and whitened locks. In several scenes, particularly th< first board meeting of the railroad Mr. Tracy overplays his part terri bly. Then also, tragedy stalks with a much too deafening tread intoj the simple lives o£ the trio involved. The picture is noisy, blatant, thunderous. Well, here's a good example of how one man's opinion is made the criterion of criticism for an entire nation. Nuts! here knew Mrs. Armstrong. Lola J A.

To begin with, the novelty of narratage (the telling of a story while the action is picturized on the screen) is too' slender a thread on which to hang four stars. In the second place, while we give Spencer Tracy full credit for an outstanding performance, we have a feeling that he is badly miscast.
