Those of an older generation amiled, giggled and laughed outright at Margaret Mayo'a play, 'Baby Mine" long before many of us put in our appearance on this ti-rrestial globe; It was screamingly funny and a good fun never dies It has been transplanted to the modern movie screen for the entertainment of the younger set. The new version of this comedy made its bow on the Michigan theater's e. Teen Saturday with the same remits, smiles, giggles, laughs, and from appearances will keep on generating laughter during its stay for the week. Charlotte Greenwood, that lanky comedienne of the stage, who gained considerable fame in "So Long I.etty." has been cast in the role pt the older sister, Kmma, playing opposite that screen giant, Karl Pane, portraying Oswald. George K. Arthur and Louise Lorraine characterize Jimmy and Helen. The limits of levity In places have perhaps been slightly overstepped, but the picture brought many a howl of laughter from its viewers yesterday. The Ormonde sisters are three of the best reasons for the success of the eye and ear entertainment. Louis and Frieda Berkoff, with their Itusslan dance numbers, are two ether good ones and the Berkoff irls, a well trained group of step-purs, are as many more causes for applause. In fact there are a number of reasons, including Del Del-irldge and his syncopators, the.Don Vocal Four and the excellent manner in which the show is staged. Fox Washington "Silk Legs."

IN PERSON The Man Who Identified ADOLPH HOTELLING I The Child Killer WILL TELL ALL! i THE DETAILS i i CIWIWWIIlIIWIWIImilMlllHIUallllMlimilllllllll the Fox Washington theater this week, with pretty Madge Bellamy In the leading role. This play concerns the business adventures of two silk hosiery salespeople, a man and a woman, who represent rival firms. The girl, who displays her wares as effectively as she sells them, catches the eye of her male rival and he, unaware of her Identity, falls In love with her and naively confesses to her his plan to do his opponent out of a good business deal. He tells her, somewhat boastfully, that he Is a successful salesman because he knows how to handle the old maid buyers. He "flatters 'em, feeds 'em, fondles 'em and forgets 'em" and Incidentally sells them large hosiery orders, he says. The girl, taking a leaf from her rival's book, tries her own charms upon the masculine president of a large concern. Her adventures with this gentleman give the play an unusual twist and the whole ends happily. , A Fox comedy which deals with horse racing in Blue Grass Kentucky offers an exceedingly funny horse whose antics highly amused the Sunday afternoon audience. The Fox Movietone, a recital of the world's news events In sound and motion, recounts the recent visit of President Coolidge to Havana In amazingly realistic fashion. The audience was almost literally transported to the land of sunshine and flowers In the wake of the presidential party as not only the scenes of the expedition but the sounds, too, were reproduced with surprising accuracy by the movietone, e. Capitol "The Noose.' Again has Richard Barthelmess struck the bull's eye in "The Noose" at the Capitol this week as he did In "The Patent Leather Kid," shown locally a few weeks ago. Whether or not your views support or are against capital punishment,-you will be deeply moved and made to ponder the question very seriously after seeing "The Noose." Its producers have skilfully avoided any appeal oife way or the other. The tory, adapted from the stage play by Willard Mack, is told In simple, direct fashion. It concerns a youth brought up In evil surroundings without knowledge of his parentage who, one day, turns on the only man he has ever known as guardian and refuses longer to do his bidding. The man Is a criminal and a bootlegger king. In fatuous belief of his own Immunity from the law, because of knowledge he possesses regarding the wlfw of the governor of the state, the bootlegger slays the man who has hi-Jacked the boy of a load of liquor, and then tells the boy he Is safe from conviction of any crime because the governor's wife was once his paramour and that the result of the union was the boy himself. The lad turns his gun on the scoundrel and, throughout his subsequent trial and sentence to pay the extreme penalty, refuses POSITIVELY LAST HEEK , Evaa. 50o to $2 JO I Pop.

The event are erlppingly dramatic and tense. The end lug Is not to be told It Is to he seen. HarthelmeBs gives a restrained but poignant characterisation ot the boy, Nickis Elklns, and equals his fine work as the "pug" and soldier In "The Patent Leather Kid," which latter bit of work is considered the best bit of acting Barthelmess has as yet given to the screen. There Is an Impeccable cast with gracious, lovely Alice Joyce as the governor's wife; Robert T. Haines, that admirable legitimate actor, as the governor; Montague Love In a splendid limning of the bootlegger king; i.lna Basquette showing that she can do more than danc and vamp, as Dot, the cabaret dancer. In love with Nlckle; Thelma Todd, also showing striking actien strides a the "girl from uptown" who playa with Nickle's young heart, and a dozen other characterisation that atand out even as small bits. The direction la such that every drop of effective screen presentation has been extracted from the melodrama. The Capitol is celebrating Its sixth birthday anniversary week. The choke In the throat, the tens Interest and the blurred tears that accompany the screening of "The Noose," is offset by the gaiety and brilliance of the stage show. Koy Sedli-y acts a master ot ceremonies of the birthday party, the unique setting for which was provided by the Kunsky production department. It ts filled with tuneful music, both instrumental and vocal, speedy dancing and kaleidoscopic costumes and movement. Boyd Senter, the famous syncopating clarinetist; Can, Tyson and Van, tap dancers; "Ll'l Esther." a diminutive pickaninny. and the Capltollans, under the direc tion of Walter Bastlan, present an entertaining show. The Capitol Symphony orchestra, under the baton of Samuel Benavle, play the beautiful finale from Tschalkowsky' Fourth symphony. Don Miller, In a special organ number, and many other stage and screen feature add to the splendor ot the party. www Nenr Detroit Opera House "l'otenikln." Moved to the New Detroit Opera house from Orchestra hall, where It was shown all last week, the remarkable Kussian film, "Fotemkln," Sunday started a week' engage ment which Include performances twice every afternoon and evening at 2, 4, 7 and o'clock. "1'otemkln is the story of the mutiny on board the armored cruiser "Prince Potemkln" of the czar's fleet, which incident occurred In 1905, and when the new of It was flashed around the world, startled and horrified the reading public. In telling the story of the revolt of the ship' crew, because of the putrid food served to them, and the sympathy and support they re ceived from the townsfolk In Odessa, In the harbor of which city the cruiser was anchored, the camera has made a tremendously moving drama, with thrill after thrill keep ing the onlooker at keen Interest. None of the actors in the picture are named, but each apparently was chosen for special fitness. Even the youngest child in the group scenes seems to act with complete naturalness and in a manner to carry conviction. "Potemkln" ha been much talked and written about since It was brought to the United btates over a year ago and Its engagement In New xorx extending over several months ha had a real place In cinema history. It has attracted similar attention locally since It came to Detroit Adama "I.ove." John Gilbert and Greta Garbo are in Russia this week at the Adams, playing their favorite screen rant of "Love." The story for this romance was borrowed from incident in Tolstoi's novel, "Anna Karenlna," and afford both players the medium most desired for their respective talents on the screen. Mis Garbo I the seductive, beautiful woman, over whom men of all ages lose their heads Gilbert, the hotheaded lover who forgets every tie of career and loyalty for the butterfly chase of the siren' favor. Miss Garbo, as Anna Karenlna, in her scenes with little Philippe deLacy, her screen child, reveals her power to depict a sacred, maternal love as well a the other kind of love which she feels for Count Vronsky, played by Gilbert. The boy, as in every picture in which he appears, discloses undoubted acting talent. The story Is that of the young wife of an elderly high official who fall In love with Vronsky, captain In the grand duke's guard, and carries the affair to the point where the pair run away to Italy only to return after a few month because Anna's love tor her child ts greater than her desire for her lover. She meets with social ostracism, I rebuffed by her husband, finds that her sacrifice for her child has been in vain, and with knowledge of the unbreakable stone wall which she ha erected around herself she well, as there are two different endings provided fur the drama, you would better see It for yourself. The story is unfolded In gorgeous Russian backgrounds and a lovely bit of Italy. The scene on Easter morning In the cathedral, and the ball In the ducal palace, are brilliant highlights In many colorful ensembles. The final scene suggests rather than enacts, the Inevitable tragic end of such a tale a that incorporated In "Love." Brandon Hurst as Anna's husband, George Fawcett and Emily Fltzroy as the grand duke and grand duchess, are excellently cast. The special muslo accompaniment played by the Adams orchestra, under the baton of Bmll Hollander, feature the theme "Love" especially composed for the score. News events and a short comedy are on the program also. Colonial "Home Made. Home made preserves, the kind that mother makes, are the keynote to all the fun In Johnny Hlner new comedy on the screen at the Colonial this week. The pioture "Home Made," ts having Its first Detroit showing; at this theater and It Is a rollicking piece ot tun from start to finish. Hines Is seen as a mother's boy, who makes a man of himself by going out on the road as a drummer. He creates a heavy market for his mother's canned goods and nlso gets Into many complications. The supporting cast is excellent with Mar-jorle Law, Edmund Breese, LeWItt Jennings, Margaret Seddon and Mnud Turner Gordon. The C'vlonlal Players, under the direction of Warren Fabian present a rollicking farce called "De Yourself, Dearie," which Is swift moving, nonsensical and laughable. Ken Christy leads in the fun, which Gloria La Verne, Gladys Vaughn, Hen Weber. Gates Austin. Harrv Cornell and Barbara Bronell. The chorus of It pretty girls is seen to advantage and there are vaudeville specialties between scenes, as well us fine vocal number by the Colonial Four. e e e State l.oew VandeTlIle, Pictures. Herb Williams, a zany who has few peers In vaudeville, heads the bill at the State. Williams hasn't changed much with the years, unless It is that he has become a little more Irresponsible, If that Is possible. To the merriment of all who behold, he bashes skulls, hangs his orchestra leader, smashes a piano to smithereens and attempts to re cite luguorious verses. He Is assisted by three men and a woman. It is all very funny. A fair miniature of a mustpal comedy I embodied In "Red Carna-Coatlneed oa Paae 19. MOT! O PICT1 R K A TT R A CT I O i.
