"THE FIGHTING 69TH” IS
FEATURED AT CAROLINA
"The Fighting 69th,” starring
James Cagney, pat O'Brien and
George Brent, has its first local
showing today at the Carolina thea
tre. Supporting the star trio are
Jeffrey Lynn, Alan Hale, Frank Me
Hugh and a host of others, playing
featured roles in the story written
by Norman Reilly Raine, Fred Niblo,
Jr., and Dean Franklin, and directed
by Wiliiam Keighley.
A rousing action drama, "The
Fighting 69th” shows Cag ney as a
cocky private, bucking army disci
pline in the form of domineering
top. sergeant Alan Hale. Pat O’Brien
plays the role of Father Francis P.
Duffy, well-known and beloved chap
lain of the 69th, and George Brent
portrays “Wild Bill” Donovan, dare
devil colonel of the regiment.
The Fighting 69th" is unique in
that, with the exception of but four
characters, all in the picture repre
sent real persons, many still living.
The Cagney and Hale roles are fic
tional, but the O'Brien and Brent
roles are taken straight from famed
real-life characters. Jeffrey Lynn
portrays Joyce Kilmer, soldier-poet
of the 69th. often called the Sham
rock Brigade, the 69th regiment was
one of the best known for its unu
sually heroic exploilts and its gen
eral capacity for scrapping. Cap
tain John T. Prout, of the 69th, act
ed as a technical advisor during pro
duction of the film, supplying much
of the personal data which makes up
the human interest story of the
scrap-happy regiment. Previewed on
the West Coast, the film is heralded
as one of the most exciting action
pictures ever made.

“INVITATION TO HAPPINESS”
IS OFFERED AT BIJOU
Drama that is pognant and close
to the heart, told in a story that is
notable for its emotional sweep, its
moments of vigorous action, and its
downright human appeal will unfold
on the screen of the Bijou theatre
when Paramount’s “Invitation to
Happiness” is presented to local au
diences. Starring Irene Dunne and
Fred MacMurray, featuring Charlie
Ruggles. Biily Cook, William Collier,
Sr., and Marion Martin, the picture
was produced and directed by Wes
ley Ruggles.
The fine touch of Ruggles, and his
writing collaborator, Claude Binyon,
is clearly evident in this picture.
This team, which has come through
with a long line of hits including
"Sing You Sinners’’ and “I Met Him
in Paris,” has taken an everyday
story and translated it into dramatic
terms which will be clearly under
stood by every audience.
The story starts to unfold with
Charlie Ruggles, manager of Fred,
going to his old friend, William Col
lier, Sr., father of Irene, and asking
him for a stake to help his young
fighter along. Always a sucker for
an investment, Collier decides to help
him. but Irene intervenes to make
certain that her father is not being
cheated.
When Irene meets Fred she is im
pressed with the difference in his
outlook on life as contrasted with
that of the men whom she has
known in society. Fred is restrained,
tells Irene that he’d rather spend his
time with Marion Martin, entertain
er in a night club. This only serves
to spur Irene on—and so they are
married.
The latest Paramount News pre
cedes the feature on the program.
"LITTLE ACCIDENT’* PLEASES
FAN'S AT ROYAL THEATRE
Releasing a barrage of bright
quips and hilarious antics which
swept the audience into repeated
gales of laughter, Hugh Herbert and
baby Sandy romped ther way
through Universal's “Little Acci
dent,” last night at the Royal thea
tre, to establish themselves as a
whirlwind new comedy team .
Although Herbert, as the worried
baby editor, had a role which suits
his talents perfectly, baby Sandy
gurgled and cooed her way through
the story with such charm that she
must have won all members of the
audience who had not already been
captivated by her refreshing per
sonality. Sandy is even better than
she was in “East Side of Heaven”
and "Unexpected Father.” She has
what it takes to make the world
laugh.
Florence Rice and Richard Carlson
handle their romantic assignments
pleasingly, and others who con
tribute to the entertainment are Joy
Hodges as “the other girl,” Peggy
Moran and Anne Gwynne as a pair
of pretty models, Ernest Truex as
Sandy’s race horse-touting father,
Frances Robinson, Kathleen Howard,
Fritz Feld, Howard Hickman, and
Charles D. Brown. Edgar Kennedy

WAKE UP YOUR
LIVER BILE
Without CJomel—And You’ll Jump Out of
Bed in the Morning Rarin’ to Go
The liver Bhould pour out two pints of
liquid bile Into your bowels daily. If this
bile is not flowing freely, your food may
not digest. It may just decay in the bowels.
Gas bloats up your stomach. You get consti
pated. You feel sour, sunk and the world
looks punk.
It takes those good, old Carter’s Little
Liver Pills to get these two pints of bile
flowing freely to make you feel "up and
up.’’ Amazing in making bile flow freely: —
Ask for Carter’s Little Liver Pills by name.
10and 25tf. Stubbornly refuse anything else.
and Etienne Girardot are humor
ously featured.
Light and gaily paced, the story,
revolves around Herbert as the baby
editor about to lose his job. When
Truex abandons his child, Sandy, in
Herbert’s office, surprises begin to
pop like firecrackers. Sandy is en
tered in a perfect baby contest and
Herbert has to persuade Miss Rice
and Carlson to pose as the infant’s
parents. For a while Sandy is a
hot potato indeed. But when she
wins the baby contest, and Carlson
and Miss Rice pose for press cam
eras as her parents, the "scandalous”
story breaks in headlines.
Moving swiftly and smoothly from
the opening scene, with no comedy
point overlooked, the picture reflects
high credit on the direction of
Charles Lamont.
