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. Y., March 4.—(iP>—
Rain and melting snow which
slopped over upstate New York to
day froze tonight, transforming
highways into hazardous lanes of
ice.
Intermittent snow and rain in
creased driving dangers. State po

Horace S. Evans, technical ad
viser to the New York State Flood
Control commission, said a flood was
"possible” in southern New York
around Binghampton, Elmira and
Hornell “if the ice in the rivers
goes out at the time of a heavy
rtin-off.” He emphasized this is
only a “possibility.”
