REVIEW OF RECENT MOVIE PICTURES "The Passing of Hie Third Floor Back," among the pictures this reviewer has seen in the past six weeks or more, (having missed several probably very good pictures), is the best all-around movie. It is the most satisfying from an artistic standpoint, the most consistently integrated. The screen play is made from the stage play. This accounts in pfcrt at least for the compactness of structure in the movie. And It is this same quality which is lacking In many motion pictures. The British companies are surpassing the American producers in the advancement of the art of the moving picture, although Hollywood knows better perhaps how to appeal to the casual seeker of entertainment and the follower of a favorite actor or actress—witness the Shirley Temple pictures, the Joe E. Brown pictures. "The Passing of the Third Floor Back" has been built upon a carefully thought-out plan, not only of the plot, but of sound effects and pictorial composition. The story is a strong allegorical presentation of a religious theme. The very capable members of the cast have been chosen with the utmost care, each to portray a particular type. The hlstoronlc pattern Is definitely conventionalized. The music is Interpretative and contributes much to the expression of the mood of the scene. The scenes of confusion are capably handled to serve as background for the powerful quality of stillness in Conrad Veldt's portrayal of the role of the Stranger, and to serve as foils for other scenes In which the supporting characters submit to the greater strength of the Stranger's righteous Indignation. The photography is of the highest order. Some of the scenes are strikingly simple arrangements of lights and shadows and lines and masses. There are two scenes in particular—a portrait composition of (he'Stranger and the young architect and another of the Stranger and the villainous Mr. Wright; another of the Stranger as he turns away from the camera on entering the small, dark third floor back room. The whole picture is stylized to a marked degree. Arrangement Is the essence of this film, arrangement of what can be seen and of what can be heard, and arrangement of what can only be felt. • • • "Dancing Pirate" runs a close second In artistic interest because of the beautiful settings designed by Robert Edmund Jones and because of some excellent dancing by Charles Collins and Steffi Duna. The only actor of unusual ability in the picture is Frank Morgan, although Luis Albernl contributes somewhat in support of Morgan's comedy, and Jack La Rue for once looks completely In character as a miltary villain. Collins does several exceedingly clever dance routines—one while he is blowing out candles and preparing to leave the dancing room for the stage coach, another picturesque solo dance with the hangman's rope around his neck, handsomely composed In movement and rhythm to fit Into the arrangement of the scene. Steffi Duna's castanet dance is scarcely less fascinating, and the ensemble dances, the moonlight waltz and the cap.e dance finale are delightful. This technicolor film is superior to "The Trail of the Lonesome Pine", because it is an artist's interpretation of the world in color while the other picture Is photographed In color from nature as It Is. Jones has long been one of the foremost designers of the stage, and this experience shows in the composition of the backgrounds, In the setting of each scene as the stage for an entrance. His knowledge and use of color is unsurpassed. There Is the most fascinating pattern of colors In full strength and In various shades and values. Dr. Ernst Tross, a noted authority on European art, observes that Robert Edmond Jones strives for colors of imaginative hue so that they help to create the moods of the picture. The studio officials are proud of what they term the synchronization of color, music, and movement. (When perfected, that will Indeed be the highest achievement In the art of the moving picture.) But says Lloyd Corrlgan, who directed "Dancing Pirate", color films will not be arty; art will be used only if necessary to the betterment of the color scheme, and then solely to enhance the entertainment value. He should not be unduly alarmed, in fact he should more carefully weigh his worts; for art is used in every picture of any account, whether in black and white or in color. And one has only to consider how art is employed In every form of industry for the purpose of increasing sales; one has only to remember that color appears in everything which people ardorn or surround themselves, to realize that color appears to everyone. • • • "Show Boat", the 1936 film version, Is good musical comedy entertainment, although rather too long and therefore slightly tedious. The well known story by Edna Ferber is further enhanced by new songs and music by Jerome Kern and Oscar Ham- mersteln H. Irene Dunne and Allan Jones have pleasing voices, and Helen Morgan sings "Can't Help Lovln* That Man of Mine" with a suitably tragic air. Paul Robeson has the best voice of the cast, as well as considerable dramatic ability. His most entertaining song Is "No Matter what You Says, Ah Still Suits Me." Charles Wlnnlnger as the captain is charming. There is nothing extraordinary about the photography. The picture depends for Interest on the songs and the story. • • • "Mad Love" Is a vehicle for Peter Lorre and therein lies its interest. It aims to be a chiller, but a foreword of warning to the weak-hearted robs the story of any real feeling of actuality, so that the audience—there is a carnival spirit on that night of the week—laughed at the most ghoulish moments. Peter Lorre—the Raskolnlkov of "Crime and Pun- ishment"—iphotgraphs to great advantage because of the large simple masses of his sculptural head and figure and too because of the masterful simplicity of his performance. His speech is carefully measured and with such sureness that even his faintest whisper Is audible. There is a powerful scene In the operating room when his madness Is made visible and audible. Frances Drake lends able support. Gertrude Nelson Is helping out at the Sorensen Grocery. She began work Monday.. Mrs. N. S. Rooney of Prlmghar was a guest last Wednesday and Thursday of Mrs. C. J.

Newton's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ton} SchuIU, and also at the home of her sister, Mrs. CUff BJustrotn. They left Monday to spend the ^°y at Hunxbotdt vi*- Itlag relatives and returned to their TheMon About Town Soya Alary Foster entertained at a slumber party on the lawn at the Andy Foster home. Little was the slumber and great the entertainment. The girls were peacefully on their cots, some snoring, some giggling and other talking. Out of the darkness came an intruder. A man shabbily dressed, weaving and falling down, made his way toward the party. The frightened girls did not wait to see who or where or what of the trespasser for sans slippers and robes they ran screaming Into the house. » * * Residents on South Thorington street need not leave their homes to enjoy the sport of auto racing and time trials. From the end of the pavement on College street to the swimming pool in a cloud of continued dual the fun goes on. Cars ready for the junk pile loaded with youngsters hanging: on all available tenders, running boards, hoods, etc.; new cars with intelligent men and women as drivers going sixty or better are the offenders. Of all things It does not give a boost for a 1938 model when a take of fifty or sixty miles an hour ia needed to climb the little slope on that street. Watch your candles. One household reports the excessive heat has softened the wux in the ornamental candles on a bookcase to such a degree that they have taken a crescent shape, in other words, bent in the middle. One of the beauty spots of the locality is the Hlackford park. Its grassy hills, shady picnic grounds, modern fireplace and hundreds of visitors warrant its up-keep. It is policed, money has been spent for improvements, but it Is a shame to be forced to drive over the roads. Roads with deep ruts injurious to cars and their occupants. Ruts cut from water rushing down the hillside.". The water came from rains. Rains so long ago it is truthful to say the roads have been almost impassable all summer. Let them be repaired. Have you ever been scared? Watch the big open window above the Dahlhauser pool hall. Almost daily there sits a little girl or boy back propped against one side with feet and legs outstretched along the sill comfortably reading a book. While deep in the pages an unconscious shifting of position can send the reader to the sidewalk below and perhaps death. Observe your newspaper and realize the weight it carries. A few weeks ago the Des Moines Register curried un article by a staff reporter about a boat plying its way back and forth across the Mississippi between the Tri Citiea. It told of the gambling devices and illicit liquors and bars. A few days later the boat was raided by state and federal men and arrests made. Last week the Register had stories and pictures of Des Moines gambling places. A day or two later they were raided and a clean-up in general started. Sunday the same paper listed towns over the state and the number of slot machines in each. Algona was among the violators. Following precedent it is safe to say, be careful, folks. Thousands of people have viewed photographs in the display case OA the corner of the Iowa State bank. Many years it served the Peterson studio and later the Brown interests. In the mad scramble of fast moving civilization this landmark has been forced out of existence. It is no more. * * * Cb<ldra>'* activttk* la UtteabaU and bMcbaB on North Thorington •trwt UUraJJy died out wfaen the C. B. Murtagh family moved to Des Moines s.everal years ago.

W * • While looking over the various shades In colored sport sun glasses a nearby progressive farmer remarked of the value green specs would have on his cows. The milk production would increase when the cows could see that the brown grass had turned green again. Why not? Psychology plays a great part In any battle. Stranger things have happened.
