At The Call Theatre A Review of the Recent Talkies By T. H. C. MRS, GEO. KUHN IS DEAD AT 65 YEARS Mrs. Anna E. Kuhn died 'last week Wednesday at the university •hospital, Iowa City, where she had undergone an operation. She had been in poor health for years, and two weeks ago was taken to Iowa Goeders to Joint Meeting of Fish and Game Boards D. H. Goeders, with the state fish and game warden, I. T. Bode, left Saturday for Fergus Falls, Minn., to attend a meeting of the International Association of Fish and Game Commissions held in conjunction with the semi-annual meeting of the Minnesota Game Protectors League. Commissions from Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, North and South Dakota, and Nebraska were in attendance with commissions from the Canadian provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. It is in this area that more than 80 per cent of the migratory wild fowl do their nesting, and the meeting discussed this topic for three days. Mr. Goeders was expected home yesterday. + Riverdale Farmers. Spend Evenings at Kittenball Games Play's" Reviewed This Week- Many Happy Returns. Murder in the Vanities Also Notes on Censorship. COME CENSORIOUS PERSONS, it O strikes me, confuse the necessity for censoring the movies their own children shall see with a needless eagerness to censor the movies everyone else shall see.—H. S. M. in Over the Coffee. Censorship as applied to movies differs from censorship as applied to the arts, largely in the awful paucity of intelligence of the producers of our cinemas. Censorship is wrong in principle, generally speaking, but the fact that the movies are for the masses —children,,adolescents, morons, as well as the intelligent—complicates the problem somewhat. There are instances, in the world of art where a rose has bloomed on a dung-hill but in Hollywood, when M 'City. Funeral services weVa held at 2:30 Saturday at the Laird & McCuUouglh: chapel, the Rev. A. B. Hueser officiating, and tourial made in 'Riverview cemetery. The deceased was born at Armada, iMich., July 20, 1868, and at death was '65 years old. .She came to Algona in 1891, 'and was married the following year to George Kuhn. She is survived by Mr. Kulhm, a daughter, Mrs. Stella Boland, St. Paul, and a son, Percy, of Algona. Mrs. Kuhn was for many years' ia member of the Methodist church. Kittenball isn't only-a sport for townspeople, writes a Riverdale correspondent, but is for county people as well. On a corner of government ground six miles south of Algona, or what is known as the old O'Rourke farm, tenanted by Peter Halsrude, Riverdale fans have made a kittenball field. The Riverdale Rats play Tuesday and Friday evenings, and the neighborhood prides itself on the team. Games start at 7, and large crowds cheer favorites. Busy farmers and their families gather for the games and relax from the daily grind. The Riverdale team will play at" Bode July 4 in a tournament. it's dirt, it's smut. just filthy, rotten To the everlasting credit of Manager Rice, let it be said that he is making an honest effort to bar objectionable movies. Such inexcusable imbecilities as Merry Wives of Reno will never be shown at the Call. Algonians are fortunate to have for the manager of their theater a man of Mr. Rice's character. A READER IN Minnesota takes time to assure us that our reviews are eagerly and appreciatively read. Which is indeed a ray of sunshine in gathering doubt as to the efficacy of these weekly (weakly?) ruminations. M ANY HAPPY RETURNS is the last of the trio of semi-musical shows. Its enjoyment depends largely on your appreciation of the talents of Burns and Allen. Gracie is nuttier than ever. "Guy —, you don't mind if I call you that, Mr. Lombardo, do you?" she asks in one place, and in another she says, "I know I'm going to like California, because I've always wanted to see the Statue of Liberty." Many Happy Returns is fairly punctured with cracks like these. The plot revolves around the idea of an exasperated father (George Barbier) marrying Gracie off to Burns to get rid of her. Father and daughter go to Hollywood with Grade's sister and the latter's fiance, which offers opportunity for glimpses of the studios. Most important of these is a scene by Veloz and Yolanda, international dance team, poorly photographed and miserably staged—a pity, since this should have been an enjoyable sequence. When Gracie is told that they are from Chicago, she says, "They can't be—where are their fans?" Many Happy Returns is just an average picture without outstand- ng merit and entertaining only to the degree in which the stars appeal to your finer sense of moronic aslnlnities. URDER AT THE w VANITIES brings to the screen the warm, sensuous beauty of the stage productions which have made Earl Carroll's name the synonym for feminine pulchritude—second only to the Immortal Ziegfeld. Here is the female form exalted to the dignity of marble; scenes that almost take away the breath — so startlingly real are the powder- puff etchings done against a background of the boudoir. Murder in the Vanities adapts itself much more readily to the screen than to the stage, where ii has been a near-flop since it opened on Broadway. There is just enough plot, just enough suspense, just enough beauty to keep up interest during the production. Four outstanding musical numbers add much to the optical enjoyment, chief among these being Where Do They Come From?, Rape of Rhapsody, Cocktails for Two, and Live and Love Tonight. Murder in the Vanities is one of the conspicuously few screen musicals which seem to have caught the spirit of the typical eye-and- ear extravaganzas which have been a feature of the stage for many seasons.
