Filmed by Warner Bros., it has been hailed as the outstanding dramatic event of the year—a rare combination of brilliant talents in the fields of act ing, writing and directing. One feminine star— especially if she be that double Academy winner, Bette Davis — might be considered sufficient for a photoplay, no mat ter how great. But in “The Old Maid” there are two. Besides Bette Davis there is the lovely and highly capable Miriam Hopkins, who has starred in many a topnotch produc tion on her own account. The girls have equally important parts. This is the first time, since they reached stardom, that either has ever shared acting honors or top billing honors with another player of her own sex. With Miss. Davis and Miss Hop kins in the picturization 'of "The Old Maid” are such players as George Brent, Jane Bryan, Donald Crisp, Louise Fazenda, James Ste phenson, Jerome Cowan, William Lundigan, Cecilia Loftus, Janet Shaw, DeWolf Hopper and Rand Brooks. The director was Edmund Goulding, whose latest previous tri umph was Bette Davis’ sensational “Dark Victory. ' The story deals with two cousins, Charlotte and Delia Lovell, who live in the same old house in aristocratic Philadelphia in the period between 1861, when the Civil War broke out; and the 1880’s. Despite the luxury and wealth with which they are surrounded, they hate and envy each other for twenty-odd years: Then the daughter of ‘‘the sour old maid” —this young girl played brilliantly by Jane Bryan—is able to bring mutual understanding to them as their gray hairs and lined faces tell they have entered middle age. To complete the program we will have a Disney Cartoon and Newsreel. CRANIUM CRACKERS TEST OF SYNONYMS Here is a test of snyoyms. Listed, are five words, each of them fol lowed by four other words.
