FAIR AND WARMER
Adapted from the great stage success.
I A picture of unusual merit.
I A happy combination is this presentation of the screen's
' daintiest, most delightful comedienne, in the funniest farce
Avery Hopwood ever wrote; and he is the cleverest humor
I our playwright in America. The absurdities arise from
I the fact that Billy Bartlett has made a fatal mistake as a
husband-he is too good to his wife Laura. Hence her
I U flirtation. Hence, when "Blanny," the adorable little wife of
I Jack Wheeler, finds herself presumably as neglected by, her
mate as Billy is by Laura, the two confide their sorrows.
And when they mix the famous cocktail-neither ever tried
one before-the unexpected happens. And although the
I events which ensue are .perhaps the most ludicrous ever con
ceived by any writer for the stage, "Fair and Warmer"
persists in being human and true to life. Never before in
her remarkable career has Missy Allison been seen to so good
advantage as in this rollicking screaming farce of matri
I monial foibles and complications.
