ODD SIZE QUARTET TO FEATURE THIRD ANNUAL GROTTO PICNIC '•_ Ms;■'■. . ■<: -‘ yrti> SStK&Ed Come Right Over and Meet a Crooning Profession ‘Storm at Daybreak’ Reveals World-Old Triangle of Wife, Lover, Husband, but Played Against a War Background. BY WALTER D, HICKMAN TUCK your song books right under your arm and trot off to the class room where Prof. Bing Crosby tells you in melody how and why Romeo landed on Juliet’s balcony. And you will hear one of the daring modern pupils in this daring modern college classroom ask information on the way Cleopatra landed her men. Prof. Crosby answers everything in melody, just learn to croon and no man will pass by. In other words, I am telling you that “College Hu mor' 1 at last is with us. This thing I want to make clear. mor" at last is with us. This thing I I know that critics over the coun- 1 try generally have taken adverse views of “College Humor.’’ Well, I for one was nearly read off the ; critical map because I raved over the real theater in “Abie’s Irish Rose.” Am going on record telling you that “College Humor” is romping, wild satire and bur lesque. It is rip snortin’ theater. It has youth and pep. And the result is that people all over the country are waiting in line at the box office to see it. And the Lyric is standing them up to see this one. If there was only handful of people •t ” ‘ '' Bing Crosby in the theater I w r ould tell you that here is corking good hokum theater. It pokes more fun at colleges than anything we have had on the screen. Some of the comedy be longs to the horse-laugh variety, but it is always theater. And a funny thing when you study the situations on “College Humor,” as Jack Oakie getting a bachelor of arts degree for spending four years in college and then working as a truck driver in a creamery after graduation, you will find maybe they are not so foolish and crazy. It is true, the scenic background didn’t cost much, and not one sec ond of any scene from a scenic standpoint can compare to “Gold Diggers” or “42d Street.” And then, why is “College Humor” such a big favorite with the fans over the country? Many answers. First, the cast is popular proof. Consider these names. Bing Crosby is no longer camera shy and he is one of the best known radio crooners. Then take Jack Oakie as Barney. w r ho thinks college is a sort of night, dub. This man has made millions laugh on the screen before and he wall make more laugh in “College Humor.” And look at this team—Burns and Allen. They haven’t so much to do, but Grade is as crazy as ever. Then for good measure we have Richard Arlen, Mary Carlisle, Ma:ry Kohn man and others. Although the atmosphere of this college is satire and burlesque, yet we are able to recognize its serious opposites in real life. The prize football player goes crazy over a co-ed sweetie, The sweetie goes ga-ga over a crooning professor. Too much bottle (said bottle did not contain milk) and our hero is kicked out of colllege. Then the big football game. One of the numbers I like best is “The Old Ox Road,” and it has been well developed with practically no scenic background at all. It is the human simplicity of this nutty and wild burlesque of college life as it does not exist that makes • College Humor” such entertaining theater. Let me know if I am right or wrong. Now at the Lyric. a a ts LOVE TRIANGLE AGAIN BECOMES TRAGIC More I consider “Storm at Day break." the more I am convinced that here is a good study of the tragic but ancient triangle the wife, lover and husband. The story opens with the assassi nation of Archduke Ferdinand of Austria and his consort. These scenes have been produced on a lavish studio scale by the director, Richard Boleslav sky, who knows better than any other living di rector ho w to handle mobs pro test in g against govern meat or the heads of gov ernment. During the disorder, you meet Gez a, a '+A <■ Kay Francis young Hungarian officer (played by Nils Asther) and Dushan, mayor of a Serbian town (played by Walter Huston). Both are great friends. Then when war is declared and Geza is in charge, the two friends, meet on Dushan's estate while Geza is searching for deserters. Dushan has a very young wife, much young er than himself, and a very lovely woman. Os course, the wife is Kay Francis. A woman who can wear clinging long skirts better than any other woman on the screen today. Dushan and his wife Irma re minded me of the good saying— December in love with June. And so a great love develops be tween Dushan's wife and Geza. Then the story works tip to a tragic climax. Dushan, to give the lovers a clear open road, drives himself to death with the villain of the story. Here is powerful and intelligent dramatic theater. The scenes in the Serbian towns are beautifully constructed. All the have been splendidly and intelligently playetL Here is mighty good dramatic ■ theater. Watch the character work of Huston. Much different than he has done in the past. Now at the Palace. a * TOO MUCH OF THE FORGOTTEN MAN IDEA As far as I am concerned there is too much of the forgotten man idea in “Heroes For Sale.” Jt is the patient and appealing work of Richard Barthelmess that gives this movi’i* whatever merit it has. The author allows the lor-, gotten man to re main the forgotten man too long. Tom just couldn’t have suffered and yield to so much un necessary and far fetched suffering as he does in “Heroes For Sale.” The fact is that poor Tom is one of the most long suffering heroes I have seen on the screen. And Richard Barthelmess he is made to suffer for something that he wasn’t to blame. He was a hero in the World War and he allows a cheat to take all of his glory and medals. You see that the theme is pretty haywire and does not convince. I want you to be your own judge, but as far as I am concerned so many of these forgotten men stories are not theater, meaning enter tainment, even if the acting is as sincere as that of Barthelmess. There is plenty of evidence that even the director was in doubt heap ing so much trouble upon the shoulders of Tom. There just isn’t any sunshine in Tom’s life. And the end of Tom’s career is just too far fetched for the wildest imagination in the theater. Some of the revolutionary talk on the part of the radicals in the story is not good theater. The cast is peopled with real actors such as Barthelmess, Loretta Young, Aline MacMahon, Charles Grapewln and Grant Mitchell. This theatrical story is out of step with the amusement taste of the day. Please have your own idea. I have. Now at the Circle. ttOtt CONSIDERING “DOUBLE HARNESS” Ann Harding had a really fine vehicle in “When Ladies Meet.” That can not be said of “Double Harness.” This one is just an ordi nary story lifted at times out of the ranks of being just “another movie” because of the individual act ing of Miss Hard ing. Here *is a story of a modern girl, approaching the old maid period of her life, who de cides to get her man by using methods which are not according to Hoyle. Here is a good woman sud denly becoming a mistress to a no account type of a w! . Xv Ann Harding rounder w T ho loves - one woman and then slides into the embraces of another discontent ed female. Just why Joan Colby (Miss Harding' wanted to annex such a speciman of the male for a lifetime companion is beyond me. ■ If she had to sin to get a husband, I why didn’t she get a real guy, so I to speak. William Powell is not 1 happy as John Fletcher, a male i daisy. In fact, Powell has been I slipping in definite character work j lately, according to my way of thinking. Joan frames it so that her father walks into John's apartment while the two are “sinning'’ some more or getting ready to. Then the author pulls a blaze shotgun wedding idea and Joan marches John to the altar. Even married. John still wants to play in other women's drawing rooms and bedrooms. Joan does succeed in getting him to attend to his shipping business. And then. John learns that his wife tricked him into marriage. ,Then the big bust-up with the other woman not only around the comer, but in the same room with the wife. Oh, hurm Os course, there is the silly Hollywood ending for little wife and foolish hubby. Sets are nice. Direction and act ing better than the story. But wait —this picture has box office draw ing power because Miss Harding is in the cast. Struggle as she is ca pable. Miss Harding can not make this another “When Ladies Meet.” Be your own judge. Now at the Apollo. a a a Other theaters today offer: “Un known Valley,” at the Alamo; movies at the Terminal, and bur leskue at the Colonial.
