"The Last of Mrs. Cheyney" at the Fox-'i i -1 .. .i .. i 1 .i iM ".'iwoim niiuuiu nil ine uiu uu- mirably this week, .. " Norma Shearer, last here in a somewhat colorless role in "The (Trial of Mary Dugan," fits perfectly into the role of the English eo- ciety adventuress, al though her Ameriean- Iese shows up a little in contrast to the clipped speech of the British ers who are working I with her in the company. The lapses are rot annoying, however, and Miss Shearer more than counter-balances this by the smoothness of her performance and her personal magnetism. She was easily the star of the production, although Ti:isil Rathbone and George Ear-raud have the two opposite roles, either one o which is of stellar possibilities. , Here again it was Barraud as the .heroic villain who gave the better readme. Rathbone seemed inclined to sneers, a matter that made his ultimate heroics a little hard to take. Herbert Bunston, who played the idiotic Lord Elton in the stage version with Ina Claire, duplicated his theater success in the talking version. "The Last of Mrs. Cheyney" is the story of high life in Mayfair and concerns the manner in which a set of crooks duped a group of lords and ladieg and nearly robbed them as well. Something of this nort was done in "Cheating Cheaters'' and kindred dramas, but not with the sliill in which it U fashioned by Frederick Lonsdale. The author approaches his melodramatic scenes with an air of nonchalance that makes for good fun, and the picture players, directed by Kidney Franklin, seemed to catch the spirit of the dramatist. Only in one instance, the rlinmx of the bedroom scene, did Miss Shearer and Rathbone become too seriously Impressed with the pyrotechnics. Franklin's adaptation follows the tnge play closely. He did have aonie trouble getting under way and cut a good bit of the comedy from (leorge K. Arthur's brash bus-boy. Hut the problems of Konnd and dialogue were solved and the picture nu-Ucs fii-st'rate entertainment. The photography is good and the costuming attractive. . On the stage. 'Renle Riano Is the Htar of a "Love School" Idea with Billy "Uke" Carpenter, Dave Good, Jean King and the two Carla Torney girlB in support. Hermle King's bund, Jamie Erickson'rf or-ean recital and tlie short subjects complete the bill, but time did not permit this reviewer staying for other than the feature. That provided quite sufficient entertainment for tho money. ., 3 Dairymen Cited In Bacteria Check After checking the bacterla-eount and the buUer-fat contents of the milk arriving- in Oakland, during Julv, City Milk Inspector Ji. L. tlriffith today tiled three dairymen to appear before him on Monday to show cause why their Oakland mllk-selllng permits should not be cancelled. J. Redonl of Banta and D. R.
