Joan Crawford runner-up for sex-honors In this ago aibly an epic picture, but by a num- ller of circumstances is cheated out of the honor of being one of the season's best. In the first place, it is a rehash of Cavalcade and The House of Rothchild and suffers from comparison; iJi the second, it has no strong cen- tj-al theme or plot idea to hold together the trememlou materials Which Winfield Sheehan and Director John Ford have at command; and in the third, there is far too niuch emphasis on trivialities. This cinema is the story of the se of a great family (much llko the house of Rothchild), but the opening sequences are too cornpli- ctited. By the time our story skips ftu'r generations, the audience is too bewildered to catch .the drift. 1*he introduction of mental telepathy and thought waccs is confus- iiig and has no significance and little value. Madeleine Carroll is introduced to an American audience.

The picture rises fl'om insignificant incidents to breath-taking battle scene heights n the twinkling of an eye; a transition almost too abrupt to preserve continuity. We saw this cinema twice, and are still a little uncertain about defects. Everyone admits that it is moving spectacle, beautifully photographed, capably acted by a chosen cast; yet—it lacks something. Perhaps it is too long, Oo complicated, perhaps too moral; whatever it is, it doesn't quite 'click". And in the movies, just as n life, sometimes a trivial incident stands in the way of success. divorce. This complicates latter's him a matters guests of honor. A program in the afternoon consisted of oldtime songs and a talk by Mrs. Stockwell on her experience at the time of the Long Beach earthquake.

These pictures were taken from an a|rplane on the preceding Saturday morning, while the giant ship was a mass of flames, and showed both frantic members of crew and passengers waving imploringly for rescue from the inferno in which they were trapped. Struggling victims were plainly discernible in ocean surrounding the great liner, and devastating effects of the heat were visible in twisted steel girders and the seared sides of Morro Castle. This was perhaps the most vivid presentation of stark tragedy ever presented on the screen— and Call patrons were privileged to view the pictures as early as Monday evening! Could a more patent example of the swiftness of this Age of Science depicted than when a holocaust occurs Saturday two thousand mil- away and the pictures are shown Mpnda yin a local theater; taken in, fact, while fire was still rag- iifg and explosions taking place oiji shipboard, we sat in a com- fprtable seat halfway across the continent and saw what was going on. 'Shipped from New York by air- phine, these exclusive pictures arrived at Des Moines early Sunday morning and were relayed to Algo- niji in time for Monday night's show. Sjich is progress in this enlightened age in 1934. Looked at from another single (in our cynical vein) we may well ask, of what real benefit to humanity is such progress? Are we hap- somewhat, so Otto sends Crawford away on an ocean voyage for no good reason except to give us a plot. While on shipboard Joan meets the dashing cavalier, Gable, falls in love with him, and finally succumbs on his ranch in South America while chasing a little colt in the wide open spaces, which is a "horse on Gable!" Joan now returns to Otto to tell him the happy (or sad) news, but learns that he has divorced his wife and given up everything • for. her. She is overcome with emotions at his magnanimous gesture, and, suppressing a tear, she up and marries him, writing Gable a brief note of condolence. Gable murmurs something about a prostitute. They meet again (Gable and Crawford) in New York, while the former is buyltig a shot-gun In stead of using it on her he takes her to a rendezvous where they leer at each other for two reels Well, to make a long story short Joan divorces Otto, and we see Gable and Joan, in the final scenes, on the Argentine ranch blg-heartedly suggesting a nice fat steer for Otto as a recompense for his losses — a bum steer porhans "" "Chained record for ought to set n imbecilities under now the e Reign of Decency.
