After having shouted about foreign films for the past year, we are about to have the pleasure of seeing a German screen operetta which bids fair to rival "Two Hearts In Three Quarter Time" for popularity. Depicting the waltz war between Johann Strauss and Joseph Lanner, which supposedly took place in Vienna In 1843, it includes also the romance of the drummer and Lanner's daughter, and no less a personage than Queen Victoria just before her long hoped for engagement to the Prince of Saxe-Coburg Gotha. Those who do not understand German c«n nevertheless follow the story by means of the English sub-titles and the sparkling comedy would be obvious even without dialogue. The funniest scenes are those in which the queen is given a demonstration of the waltz by the drummer and his lady love who for the time being is so furious with him that she steps viciously on his toes, and the queen, thinking it part of the dance, follows exactly when she opens the dancing at the court ball, with everyone of the ladies imitating her. • • • We have wondered what makes "Cain and Mabel" one of the most amusing pictures of the new season, for it has not only hilarious repartee and occasional slapstick, but also Interludes of several of the thousand love songs Illustrated with tableaux and dances. Finally, we have concluded that It Is Marion Davies herself with her gleaming blondness and calm, undistorted. almost "dead-pan" countenance, who serves as the point of rest in the center of a crowd of hurrying, worrying fighters, producers and actors—chiefly the belligerently masculine Clark Gable. Miss Davies is handsome in period costume and in modern dress of the latest style. Even the dark glasses assumed for disguise In the public library scene only serve to enhance her beauty. The Des Moines Register quotes W. S. Van Dyke as saying that one of the qualities of the perfect woman should be the native kindness of Marlon Davies. This quality is evident, too, in her rather deep rich speaking voice. The most interesting dance is the Coney Island number—done in the manner of an animated doll. • • • "Craig's Wife", directed by Hollywood's only woman director from a Pultlzer prize play of several years ago is a masterpiece of simplication, and an object lesson for wives—and for husbands. Let us hope that every domineering, self-centered wife who tries to be the man of the family saw the picture and learned something from it. A picture which is made from a good play is as a rule extremely compact. Conditions which cover a long period of time and a varied number of characters are compassed within even less *h*n the usual running time of a film. There is much less of that feeling one gets from seeing a series of home-made movies than is customary in certain types of purely amusement motion pictures. In other words, the essence of that particular section of life is distilled for one's understanding. John Boles is rather ineffectual but probably just the kind of husband to be so bamboozled. Rosalind Russell has grown too thin and her artificial eyelashes are grotesque. But no doubt such a disposition as "Craig's Wife" would tend to reduce a woman, and her eyelashes, on second thought, add just the last touch of the macabre to a character which is so vivid because overdrawn with artistic license. Miss Russell has decided ability which is quite genuine. • • • "Rnniona" In a picture of grpnt Importance because it represents a big step in the development of moving pictures in color. It is a well directed and capably acted version of Helen Hunt Jackson's story. But more than that it Is an improvement in the use of color In both out-of-doors and indoor photography. "The Trail of the Lonesome Pine" showed no attempt to Interpret nature. Everything seemed to be photgraphed as was. In "Panoing Pirate" practically every scene was made to order—with beautiful compositions resulting, but with lack of continuity and Integration. In "Rnr.iona" out-of-doors scenes have been carefully selected for compositional values as well as for color harmony and the rawness of natural color has hr»n muted. The architectural settings and Hdjvricts have been designed not only with an eye to attaining subtle color schemes, but "also with, tho purpose of achieving simplicity. Consider the control of large surfaces of softly colored walls with C'e minutely patterned masses of trees and field i of wheat. T r> this connection, let us urge you not to miss "The Garden of Allah," the revival of that old ro- mnrK". It Is said to be the finest as well as 'he latest effort In color; further, that is Marlene Dietrich'* 'iest vehicle. It Is quite possible that Miss Dietr^h's studied slowness of pace Is exactly the kind of histrionic simplicity required for the more complicated medium of the movie In color. $12,000 Worth of Hog* Francis Adams, local manager of the Live Stock Shipping Association reports he has trucked out of this vicinity, approximately $12,000 worth of hogs and cattle in the past month.
