Let us .show ou this.—JSee Hutchine, over I.ETTKK OF INTRODUCTION— I have been waiting several days to analyze and tabulate my reac tlons and impressions on Letter o Introduction; but even after a re flective nnd prolonged pause I an unable to register coherently. In the first place, the cast am direction t of this cinema offering, are euparb; but I am just wondering if the indiscriminate mixture of farce comedy (Charles McCnr thy and Bergen) and stark, grim tragedy (Andrea Leeds and Adolpl Menjou) Impressed movie-goer- with the same lack of force as 1 did me? I never felt quite sure of myself Just when I wae being torn by tho emotional fireworks of Miss L'eedf —presto, I was listening to the in ane palaverlngs of Charlie! Maybe I'm a bit slow in my mental work ings, but this constant and rapid change from farce to tragedy slm ply bewildered me. Andrea Leeds is a beautiful and talented actress, and, cast oppo&iti the veteran Menjou, has every opportunity to make the most out o her situations. Looked at from the angle that this is the central plot- idea, and all other action is simply .ncidental, then the Introduction of the comedy sequences is not unusual. Perhaps, also, the fact that Bergen-McCarthy is euch a head- ine combination makes it dlfftcul to assume that it is incidental. Well, we are about where we started. One thing must be said about direction. With a definite arid positive plot angle—the letter of introduction—the action of the play goes straight to its mark. It tever falters. Few movies have leld more tenaciously to a single .hread of plot. It holds the whole .ogether from beginning to end Viewed from this point, and from he superlative cast, we must agree hat Letter of Introduction is a most unusual picture, well worth 'he time., and money. THE If one could pick this great poch picture into little fragments, and view each for its intrinsic ralue, this would probably be the reatest of all in this type of story. But, taken as o, whole the tremendous tempo of the thing simply ires one -out. The incessant driv- ng of great herds of cattle across ivers, through dust storms and aging prairie, the vastness of it 11, beggars the senses and leaves ne worn to a frazzle. If we think we are going through hard times and depressions, we have only to see The Texans and 31p52 find out what a enap we really have. And, speaking of depressions, if the helpful and considerate republicans blame the democrats for our present woes, real and imaginary, they ought to see this picture and observe the plight of thie country during the reconstruction period of our history. Here surely- is one of OUT blackest moments. And the republicans were to blame for ftf —which Is why we have a Solid South today Viewed from a broader angle, a great country always has fte nps and down politically, and it is quite useless to try to shoulder blame on any party in power. The Texan, as I have said, Is a greater picture piecemeal than In entirety. There are moments of positive triumph. May Hbbson gives her- greatest, most inspired performance. Her' scene with the drunken captain, when she finally lands in her. cups, is one of the priceless scenes of the movies. And when old Uncle Dudley puts out a fire on nth wooden leg with a huge expectoration of tobacco juice, only to pass quietly out of this world, a truly great moment Is born. The photography is superb. There are great, sweeping prairie vistas never so effectively done before Jn any picture. The cattle crossing the river, the caravan .silhouetted against a sinking sUiv boundless panoramas of sky and endless prairie—these pictures almost lift you from your seat. But when the whole Is patched together—when plot threads are gathered together, and everything Is woven Into a compact epoch—it Is simply too big, too massive. The Texans ought to end the Opening of the West series for some little time. Which will be soon enough for me. East-Senecd Mr. and Mrs. Fred Hedln had their 'baby baptized Sunday at the Seneca Lutheran church. She was named Virginia Lorraine. Mr. and Mrs. J. H.
