Reviving the Golden Age of
musicals, “Ziegfeld Girl’’ is ac
claimed as topping the imposing
list of lavish productions sche
duled for 1941—also as being
Hollywood’s most elaborate spect
acle since “The Great Ziegfeld”.
Opening at Peoples on Sunday
and moving up town for a two
day run on Monday and Tues
day, the picture combines an all
'star cast, spectacular production
numbers, magnificent sets, and
brings together a galaxy of the
most beautiful girls in America.
A strong dramatic story, written
by William Anthony McGuire,
is interwoven with the trio of
scintillating production numbers,
“You Stepped Out of a Dream”,
“Minnie from Trinidad”, and “We
Must Have Music", which furnish
unexcelled highlights for the film.
, The picture tells the story of
three girls—Susan Gallagher, San
dra Kolter and Sheila Regan—
played by Judy Garland, Hedy
Lamarr and Lana Turner respect
ively. It tells of their jump from
Obscurity to fame, and its effect
on their lives. The dazzle and
glamour of the Follies prove too
much for Sheila, who in the end,
ill and disillusioned, dies on the
eve of Susan’s success as the
Follies’ new star.
Young, her truck-driver sweet
heart, who loses Sheila to the lure
of the show and fascination of
wealthy Geoffery Collis, played by
Ian Hunter. Tony Martin, as the
singing star of the Follies, be
comes infatuated with Sandra
who remains loyal to her hus
band, Franz (Philip Dorn), and
who gives up her career as a
Follies' beauty for his love.
. Charles Boyer and Margaret
Sullivan are co-starred to bring
to the local screen the dramatic
screen version of “Back Street”.
A story of warmth, tenderness,
and tragedy, it will be presented
at the Peoples Theatre on Monday
and Tuesday of next week.
Miss Sullavan, independent-spir
ited girl in the Cincinnati of the
’90’s rides in Richard Carlson’s
first horseless buggy, jokes with
Frank McHugh, the drummer, and
falls in love with. Boyer, who is
rneir love is Desec oy miscnanee,
as Miss Suliavan’s attempt to
reach Boyer’s boat, on which he
planned to marry her, is thwarted.
They meet five years later in
New York, where Boyer is a
successful banker and married.
The old love is rekindled brightly.
For years she is his second life,
unable and unwilling to give up
the great love they have for
each other. When he is gone for
months, she decides ta marry
Carlson, but meet Boyer again,
and loses her resolve.
Many more years pass, still
greater success comes to the inter
national banker of repute, and
still Miss Sullavan is his second
companion. In France, his son,
Tim Holt, upbraids Miss Sullavan
for her persistence, and Boyer
comes upon them. The boy refuses
to understand,and Boyer, broken,
suffers a stroke and dies. Her
purpose in life gone, Miss Sul
lavan follows him, a picture of
what might have been, save for
mischance, coloring her final

“Topper Returnes”, a comedy
mystery, with Roland Young,
Joan Blondell, Carole Landis,
Dennis O’Keefe, will be shown at
the downtown theatre on Wednes
day and Thursday of next week.
Miss Landis and her friend, Miss
Blondell, have just returned from
the Orient and Miss Landis is on
the way to see her father, Warner,
for the first time in her life. A
couple of attempts are made on
Miss Landis’ life, and during the
first night that the two girls are
in Warner’s house Miss Blondell
is murdered by mistake. Miss
Blondell’s ghost immediately goes
into action and enlists the aid
of Cosmo Topper, Young, to try
and solve the crime. From there
on the action is fast, furious and
funny, with trap doors, gags, and
hokum galore woven into the
screenplay’s general pattern. One
sequence with Anderson and a
seal is a riot.
Richard Arlen, Andy Devine, and
Dorothy Lovett will be presented
at Peoples Friday of next week in
the film, “Lucky Devils”.
Arlen and Devine are newsreel
cameramen for Mercury Newsreel.
To get a scoop on the competition
Arlen sends a phoney news bulle
tin to the other reels over a
teletype machine run by his girl,
Miss Lovett. She loses her job
and breaks their engagement, but
Arlen promotes a job for her
as a radio newscaster. A couple
of saboteurs enter the picture
and the pace of the action in
creases. Paying Arlen back for
the trouble he made for her,
Miss Lovett sends him off on a
fake story. However, things pop
and Arlen and Devine square
themselves with everybody by
rounding up the saboteurs.
