SHAW Free Press Drama Crltie More than three years after it was first made available here abouts "Angel Street" came back Monday night to remind that basically it is one of our best spine tin-glers, even when played with a bit of emphasis on the comedy side, as is the case in the cur-r e n t presentation. This time it is being exhibited in Con sistory Cathedral at Masonic Temple, where a limited number of firstnighters found much to their liking. - Five characters are sufficient to carry the Patrick Hamilton tale to a conclusion. Of these only three are particularly involved, as a fiendish husband drives his wife toward insanity. THE MANNINGHAMS live in a musty old house in London. Here Manningham schemes diabolically to unbalance the mind of his mate, apparently for the satisfaction he derives from such torture as he imposes. The real motive is disclosed when a one-time Scotland Yard operative with a long memory for faces and facts comes on the scene. There was a murder years before which was never solved, and there are some hidden jewels for which Manningham seeks under the same roof where the couple reside. That, you can see, furnishes plenty of plot. It is developed so that suspense is ever present, together with laughs. It all takes place in a single night in the Manningham home, and moves along agreeably. VIOLA KEATS gives a good . Jtf v TONIGHT AT 8:30 I.'iWm Matinees Wed. I Sat.
