"Alias Mary Dow" is a picture with an Improbable plot, too many overwrought emotions, and altogether too much gabbing on the part of Sally Eilers. Since her appearance in "State Fair", Miss Ellers has not been any too fortunate In pictures In xvhlch she has been cast "Alias Mary Dow" will not add anything to her prestige. The story starts out with the kidnaping of an infant, and the subsequent entry of Miss Eilers into the film as the fraudulent daughter of the couple, who lost the child, although the husband himself perpetrates the fraud to save his wife's life. In between scenes in the Cloudland dance hall, a beanery, and the elegant life of high society, Miss Eilers endears herself to the family that adopted her, and snares a rich husband, who in turn becomes a hero by hanging a good sock on the villain's chin in the final roundup. The plot was loose, the dialogue frayed at the edges, and the entire affair not too good an excuse for a picture, but it provoked some good laughs, so there must have been something to it. Batting av>rage—40 per cent. • • • When Dick Powell and Joan Blondell are teamed together in "Stagestruck", the combination of those two potent names naturally leads one to believe they are going to see something. Instead they are sadly disillusioned to find Joan playing <i part foreign to her nature, and Dick Powell miscast as a dance director, who dislikes all beautiful girls, but eventually falls for one from the west who came to New York to "make good." As might be expected, the little country girl gets her chance end saves the show, and all that tripe. There were a. few saving graces to the pictures, and none of them were any of the vocal numbers by Powell. Frank McHugh wasn't bad, and combined with the Yacht Club boys, gave the picture enough humor to pull it through. Perhaps the casting office had Dick and Joan under contract for one more picture, and in order to get something out of it threw them into "Stagestruck." As a reviewer, we felt more awstruck at the whole affair. Batting average—50 per cent » • • Algona theatre* are announcing their new pictures for the fall and winter season. In the moving picture Industry, fall is the signal for a new start Producers have signed up their stars for the coming year, portioned out their roles, and sometimes contracted for writers to prepare their stories or made deals whereby they adapt some material already written for the screen. When those details are completed, they embark on a campaign of booking or selling their total company product. Exhibitors contract for the entire output by companies and hence the beginning of a new set of films. Unfortunately, all of the output of each company is not first rate product The exhibitor has to buy the bad along with the good. He buys blindly, having very little knowledge as to what the films will be like, other than a general Idea of the stars lined up by each company for the various pictures. Film industry Is one of the greatest in the nation, one of the biggest money makers (for the producers, at least), and one of the most potent "closed corporation" affairs in the land. Generally speaking, there are only two kinds of motion pictures—those that entertain and those that educate. Sometimes a picture can db both; often, neither. To put one's finger on 'To Mary— With Love", Is not easy. We realize that critics everywhere have given the vehicle unreserved praise; it has packed theatres from coast to cosat. ^iml yet, "To Mary—With Love", the picture adapted from Richard Sherman's story is not all entertainment, nor is it exactly education. Warner Baxter in someiiow or other too old, too worn out look- ins, >•« impress your reviewer (wno is out-voted by su.ue of me nignest paid reviewers in the U. S.) ad a vivacious onuegroom. Myrna i^oy is more convincing, Tne picture, embellished with shots uum recent history, JDempsey vs. Tunney, Lind.,,.18 New York welcome, and the stock market crash, is not ordinary—it is far above that But as to whether or not it will remain with us as one ot the super pictures Is debatable. Perhaps Ufa uoes run as complex, perhaps it does have the un- uertone of suspense (which is a tribute to the picture) found in "To Mary—With Love." If so, the picture is then almost a too vivid panorama of every day human existence, and by that very fact instead of providing entertainment, which is a brightening or easing of life, it tends to leave i depressing effect To our good friend, Richard Sherman, no offense. Perhaps we need an occasional douse of depressing action to make us appreciate life all the more. "To Mary—With Love", has an excellent theme, well connected story and some good acting. And so, although we Join in congratulating Mr. Sherman on his first picture adaptation, we would not in honesty, give the picture four stars. We shall look forward, however, to more and better pictures. Batting average—75 per cent. "Seven Sinners" combines more train wrecks per reel than any other production we've ever seen, and it also offers some good acting, some clever dialogue, and an Edmund Lowe who seems to have taken a new lease on life In 'adapting himself to roles that Warren William or Bill Powell have skyrocketed to fame in similar pictures. "Seven Sinners" is mighty good entertainment and Constance Cummings .doesn't hurt the film a bit Lowe bets a French ace detective inspector $5,000 that he can solve a mysterious train wreck and murder first, and the bet Is on. Before the finish, several more train wrecks, and'one or two good fights, plus some clever sleuthing have kept the audience well entertained. Naturally, the man we lease suspect the French inspestor is the murderer. 'We are not familiar with English railroading, but we know that In • U. 8. nobody could uncouple the last car of a passenger train while it was on the fly. Otherwise, the plot is fairly logical, after you've seen It through. Gaumont-Brltlsh Alma are for the most part pretty good motion pictures, and although the Industry may not have reached the peaks of our own films, we cannot help but feel that their batting average is slightly better. Batting average on this one—75 per cent. Bernrce LimUey IB Guest at Shower Fentoiu Bemice Llndsey was the honoree at a pre-nuptlal miscellaneous shower at the Llrtdsey home on Wedn*"*iy afternoon.
