SOMETIMES A CINEMA appar- ' ently hastily thrown together nd atrociously entitled is pulled ut of the mire of mediocrity by a icrfectly balanced cast and cynic- ,lly clever dialog. Such a talkie s Smarty. "Love," says Warren Villiam, "is the illusion that one voman is different from another!" leflecting on the sad state of matrimony, he bewails the small ime given to the fine Art of Love ly the average husband. "He ileeps eight hours," continues Wil- iaiu, "he spends 12 more selling nsurance or mouse-traps, three more eating meals—which leaves sxactly one hour for his amours. But as a rule 35 minutes is enough, which still leaves him half an hour o eat aud sleep!" To most serious-minded citizens he plot of Smarty is heresy, but here is enough of satire, enough )urlesque, enough truth in the pro- ;eedlngs to make them enjoyable, even on blisteringly hot nights. Joan Bloudell as the spoiled wife vho "commutes" between hus- jauds is a scream; also Edward E. Norton, who as Husband No. 2 con- ributes a neat touch of comedy. <Yank McHugh as the matrimonial kibitzer is excellent, and Claire Dodd rounds up an almost faultless jast. Even Warren William, whom we have come to check off our list of favorites, extracts some real meat from this cinematical hors d'oeuver. this critic. Either the picture has been badly slashed by censors, or the condition of the film is such that it compares unfavorably with American treatment of the same subject. At any rate, the thing moves in typical Teutonic fashion —slow, ponderous, heavy, uninteresting. The cast, headed by Dorothea Wieck, is superb, and there is no) a man in the production. The plot shows the effect of stern discipline and ruthless coldness on the sensitive nature of an adolescent girl Besides the novelty of following the dialog in native German, there was little in Maedchen in Uniform to commend it to an American audience, or even to a racially-inclined critic.
