C. an overwhelming abundance of sugary virtues that customers literally writhe and squirm in their seats, enjoying the orgy. The cast, in a vehicle so preposterously impossible and far-fetched that even a 10-year-old child loses bis dinner, adult patrons are supposed to go ga-ga over, and the plot features a millionaire's daughter who scrubs floors, bakes cakes, and tonds tlio children. But- the picture is clean, if that's you require. Servants' Entrance rests on the assumption that all rich folks are lazy and inhuman, while chauffeurs and conks are always industrious, Kind and intelligent. Just why Janet leaves her luxurious home to scrub floors is never clearly explained—maybe to make her more spotless! Each incident in the plot only plunges us deeper into the abyss of utter asininity. We RO from implausibility to downright improbability. Kvon veteran actors like Walter Connelly gag at such infamous proceedings. His lines are stilted, and fit times ho pauses, as if to say to himself, "You d— fool, to waste your time over such imbecilities!" Low Ayres, less an actor, gets along tolerably well—he makes the good hero with a heart of gold who rebukes the rich girl when she trios to make love to him. Servants Entrance is built on a human frailty—envy—scarcely a mortal who consciously or unconsciously does not bavo a dash of it. Tlie only reason pictures like these Plays Reviewed This AVeek— Newspaper Movie Criticisms. The Hideout. Servants' Entrance. P ROBABLY THE LOWEST point to which any criticism of the Arts has ever fallen has been reached in reviews of the current cinema in metropolitan newspapers. Without exception the criticism is weak, puerile, asinine, and designed not to form an intelligent guide to pictures but to influence unwary customers to spend shock- els on worthless, uninspired trash. Among the better type of magazines, notably Esquire, Vanity Fair, Judge, and Life, the standard of movie criticism is considerably higher, and the reviews seem courageous and unbiased. But in the lesser catagory of publications, chief among them, perhaps, erty, the stuff is about on a Lib- par i and Lakota lial music. jfornian Goes Home— i.

A more striking example of mass-mindedness could scarcely be conceived. The reviews in our newspapers are but a rehash of exaggerated, false, highly colored publicity blurbs which studios send out in advance. Not an ounce of brains in a carload! Fear of the advertiser is the only explanation which can be given for this deplorable condition. But if this is the case, why not dispense with cinema-parrots altogether and just run the pre-views of the producers. Then, at least, ,he unsuspecting public would not be misled? As Exhibit A of the ultimissimo of absurdity in talkie criticism, we quote from WGN's review of Treasure Island, in which these illuminating pearls of thought appear: Treasure Island has been delight- 111 AW ° here, •as Abbas, ten years t »,..*, last week at Albert where he works and was a few daya - but •v..

Exhibit "B" from the same sheet consists of this juicy bit of philosophy, referring to One More River: "Altogether I believe you'll enjoy this photoplay, with its one more proof that America's a pretty good place to live in."

By comparison the 1934 variety are thin- blooded, lily-livered mollycoddles. In The Hideout we have this new species of racketeer on display—a whiff of new-mown hay and a good long look at demure, virtuous Maureen O'Sullivan feeding chickens and milking cows. And our hero melts like a snow-flake in July. The Hideout just misses being another It Happened One Night, the Thin Man, or Lady For a Day. It is the same type of clever, fast entertainment punctuated with laughs, shot through with tender love,'and embellished with a dash lice; but he escapes to a small Connecticut farm and hides out till the affair blows over. While convalescing he falls in love with the farmer's daughter (Maureen O'Sullivan). In the end, run down by detectives, he serves an 18 months sentence to clear his name, and then claims his bride. Needless to say, Maureen was waiting when the prison doors released him. The charm of The Hideout lies in the subtle direction of W. S. Van Dyke, who has capitalized a great number of trivial details to bring out the bewilderment Of a city man transported bodily to a farm and getting used to the thing. There is feeding the chickens, milking the cows, and picking cherries, all novel adventures for one who has spent a lifetime in the confines of a great American metropolis. And Director Van Dyke has not allowed any of the humor of such a situation escape him.' Robert Montgomery, still under the impression that he is the screen's cutest cut-up, gets some good laughs out of some unusual situations, while Miss O'Sullivan is captivating as willing victim of his love-assaults. The supporting cast is well nigh faultless, and it brings to light another youthful actor to fill the shoes of Jackie Coogan and others who have graduated from the so-called cinema kindergarten —Mickey Rooney, who adds a tre- receive a civil reception is because most of us enjoy the gory spectacle of the rich and powerful being knocked off golden pedestals and dragged through the mire of common mediocrity. The circle of Gaynor fans is narrowing down to only a selected few, and the millenium will be reached when Janet and her cine- inatlcal absurdities are dumped into the nearest ashcan—and the cover put on firmly. Mrs. A. H. Olson, 74, 40 Years at Swea City, Passes Swea City, Sept. 11 — Funeral services for Mrs. A. H. Olson were held at the Baptist church by the Rev. G. R. Siemens Friday at 2 o'clock.

The car left the road, ran across the ditch, and hit a fence. Helen, in the front seat, suffered a knee gash; the j rest were uninjured. Two glasses were broken, and the frame sprung. This was the second accident Durwood had had on this road in the last few months. mendous wallop to a picture which, Rare Flowers are Planted by Wille already carried an extra-measure of punch. The Hideout is beautifully photographed, and the musical accompaniment is catchy, featuring such well known rural melodies as Turkey in the Straw and The Old Gray Mare. A well balanced selection of short subjects completed another 100 per cent program at the Call. J ANET GAYNOR, in Servants, Entrance, should delight the League of Decency. Nothing so fabulously lily pure (and insipidly innocuous) has flashed across the silver screen since they made Jean Harlow a virgin in The Girl Prom Missouri. Here is goodness personified, virtue exalted, banality and the commonplace raised to the n-th degree. Here also is a completely colorless and negative personality, with an affected and artificial demeanor and a rasping high- pitched voice, endowed with such Paul Wille, custodian of the Ambrose A.
