NOtTHWIITIIN HIL TIlifHONI COMfANY REVIEW OF RECENT MOVIE PICTURES "Mary of Scotland" Is noteworthy' for several facts. It marks the appearance of Katherine Hepburn In a role of restrained emotions, befitting the queen whom she portrayed. It follows the outline of history fairly accurately, leaving open to debate the question of whether or not Old Pater Knox was as dtsagreable as shown—and believe It or not, the hero died, and even movie script didn't save him. We expected the heroine to die, but for both of them—my goodness. Scotsmen viewing the picture must have felt twinges of anything but pride, as they viewed a host of disagreeable characters march across tne screen. The picture was unusual for the manner in which it sprinkled reel after reel with unpopular character portrayals. . »,,».» "Mary of Scotland" was not a picture to lighten one's life, or ease away one's troubles, but for solid entertainment with historical significance, it will last In memory for some time. It missed oe- comlng an epic; there was no giant mass scene between opposing forces, no great battle, no magnificent spectacle to remember, other than a courtyard skirmish or two, but It was a good> PJcture, nevertheless. And we suspect that all the bagpipers on the west coast were recruited for some of the scenes—and the most interesting at that To Katherine Hepburn, orchids for queenly acting; to Fredric March, a medal for maintaining his position as No. 1. actor in the art of interpreting roles from history requiring mature youthfulness and vigor. • • • Some pictures begin nowhere and end nowhere and your commentator cannot help but feel that way about "The General Died at Dawn." Gary Cooper tried hard, and Madeleine Carrol carried her attractive self like a good heroine shouW, after reforming, and deciding to die before a Chinese firing squad and thus atone for It ail-but somehow or other the picture failed to live up to ex* pectations. Gary Cooper is the usual handsome American, who it seems, differs from the usual run because all he is interested in is saving the millions of Chinese who are under the heel of a warlord. Gary Is captured carrying the money that will mean weapons (and killing) for the underprivileged, betrayed by a girl not quite in her teens. Well, the general, It seems, is an ego-maniac who Is finally stabbed, and Gary plays upon his ego until the general has his personal bodyguard kill each other just as he dies, and of course our hero and heroine are thus released from an awful fate. Perhaps we fail to understand the Oriental mind, but the picture reminds us of nightmares we had when a small boy. • * * The plalnspoken, either hi words or pictures, Is often hard to stomach, especially if you have prejudices otherwise. But the "March of Time" continues to be outspoken, and We have a feeling that its authors strive mightily to produce as near a truthful portrayal of events as it Is possible to obtain. More power to the sponsors of "March of Time", always a welcome relief from Hearst Metro- tone News. • » • After 22 years, "The Birth of s Nation" loses none of its appeal. The first few sound reels are pretty scratchy, and the characters move about like animated cartoons, only not as graceful, but the picture gains momentum as It goes, and Immortalizes a most critical period In American history. The big, brawny blacksmith who got shot after cleaning out a shed full of renegades was Wallace Reid, an actor who rose to fame In this picture. The film caught and still holds, the utter foolishness and yet the inevitability of th* War Between the States; the war that welded out separate units, one nation of united strength—the war that eliminated any barriers there may have been to America's progress.
