Movie Revues | “ALLEGHENY UPRISING” IS FEATURED AT THE ROYAL “Allegheny Uprising” has the rare quality of universal appeal if the film’s initial showing yesterday at the Royal theatre revealed all the entertainment ingredients of the outdoor action film, the historical epic and the romantic drama. Claire Trevor and John Wayne have the leading roles in this pic turization of Neil Swanson’s best seller,” "The First Rebel,” and turn in performances that top their sen sational work in the recent "Stage coach.” As a hardy frontiersman and an impulsive daughter of a colonis , they make an ideal roman tic team. The story concerns itself with the dramatic uprising of the Pennsyl vania settlers against the British army approximately 15 years before the fateful Revolution of 1776. When indifferent army officials failed to heed the protests that crooked trad ers were supplying indians with munitions, which in turn were be ing used in savage raids, the des perate frontiersmen openly revolted. James Smith, portrayed by Wayne was elected leader of the "rebels.” With his faithful followers, he tried to expose the illicit traffic of the traders, but the arrogant officer in charge of Fort Loudon ignored the charges. Through the treachery of Callendar, leader of the unprincipled traders, a warrant was issued for his arrest. From this point on the tattered frontiersmen were obliged to take up arms against the British garrison, a siege that showed the Mother country the resourcefulness and courage of the colonists which later broke the shackles of her rule. “BALALAIKA” FEATURED AT CAROLINA THEATRE “Balalaika,” spectacular musical which opened at the Carolina yes terday, deserves the plaudits of re viewers and the patronage of the public on many points, but on two in particular. It offers Nelson Eddy the best screen vehicle of his career and it presents importantly for the first time Ilona Massey, a new and radiant singing star who, if this critic’s judgment means anything, is here to stay for a long, long time, A vigorous story of the Russia of the Czars before, during and after the revolution, “Balalaika" h s color, action, drama, romance and comedy in abundance. The supporting cast of “Balalaika” includes Charlie Ruggles, Frank Morgan, Lionel Atwill, C. Aubrey Smith, Joyce Compton, Walter Woolf King and Dalies Frantz, and all are excellent. Reinhold Schunzel directed the ' picture with a skilled hand. “RED SALUTE”FEATURED ON THE BIJOU’S PROGRAM If you’re in the movie market for a smart-paced, sparkling comedy, chock full of the season's brightest dialogue and heartiest laughs, hie yourself down to the Bijou theatre today and see “Red Salute,” starring Barbara Stanwyck, with Robert Young lending chief support, the latest offering of Edward Small and Harry M. Goetz, producers of Reli ance pictures to whom we owe such varied and memorable cinema treats as “Palooka” and “The Count of Monte Cristo.” “Red Salute” gives Barbara her first opportunity to doff the familiar garments of tragedy as a pretty, modern co-ed, blessed with a quick tongue, a venturesome spirit and a rollicking sense of fun. From the moment when this head strong maiden, Drue Van Allen, is tricked by her United States Army general father into flying across the Mexican border to save her from harmful publicity arising from her association with a young campus agitator of a decidedly “pinkish” cast, the story moves swiftly from one thrilling and laugh-provoking adventure to another. In her efforts to get back into Uncle Sam’s terri tory, she involves not only a wise cracking young buck private on fur lough, in the person of Mr. Young, but a henpecked husband (Cliff Edwards) and his pursuing wife (Ruth Donnelly), the Border Patrol and even the federal authorities. The program also includes a mus ical short with Vincent Lopez and orchestra and a color cartoon. Rain And Snow Freeze On New York Highways ALBANY, N.
