MONDAY,' JANUARY 7, 1929." 1 OPENING ATTRACTIONS IN WASHINGTON THEATERS | NATlONAL—“Fioretta.” There are many well tried friends at the National Theater, where Earl Car ■ roll steps forward with the most ex travagantly beautiful production for which his name has ever stood in sponsorship. Even the story of the play has pleasant reminders of old acquaintance as a heroic swordsman follows in the footsteps of Don Caesar de Bazan and finds himself about to be put to death for violating an edict that forbade duelling. If Don Caesar found an earthly reward of melodious tribute in Marltana, as once more reincarnated in new realms of romance, he is here re warded not only by the triumph of affection, simple and Intense; he is transported to the lavish luxury and the bewildering beauty of a Moham medan paradise. In case Mussolini is really serious about reviving old Italian glories, he need hardly go so far as the statuary and colonnades of ancient Rome. He might at least pause on the backward | trip along the corridors of time and I study this Idealization of Venetian magnificence, as gondolas are revealed with silver oars and boats have silken sails, while speech is turned always either into witty phrase or else set to Irresistible melody. The music of “Fioretta” Is one of its most prominent elements of endear ment. It succeeds often In asserting itself to admiring attention even above and beyond the pictorial pageantry that makes the proscenium arch the frame for a ficture where some Pygmalion, by his prayers, breathes life into a wilder ness of Galateas. A theatrical program takes on deli cate distinctions. The "cast” Is an nounced and then a final "e” is added, and the word “caste” appears to the imagination. Leon Enroll, Fannie Brice and Lionel Atwlll are big typed. George Houston, Dorothy Knapp. Theo Karl and Jay Brennan find honor in achievement though announced by less conspicuous display. A half dozen other performers are abundantly entitled to admiring rec ognition in comedy or songfulness. So many names are mentioned In giving credit for incidental service per taining to costumes, scenery and "direc tion” of one kind or another that the work begins to resemble a demonstra tion of the theory of “efficiency,” with “head men,” “key men,” “contact men” and all the rest of the functionists who figure in a large enterprise. The production is not permitted to remain only a mechanism of appeal to love of beauty. Leon Erroll finds, when he first appears, a complicated set of lofty stairs which threaten to claim co star recognition. His comedy, improv ing every season, becomes more and more humanly vital as well as irre sistibly absurd. Positive as she is in her chosen ways of fun-making, Fanny Brice manages to keep from stepping entirely out of the picture, and in addition to the characteristic chatter which never fails to compel laughter, establishes a climax as she holds her center of the stage in a really comic “comic song.” Just how Lionel Atwlll could make himself at home in such rollicking and tuneful company seemed a matter for question, since most of this player’s career has been devoted to work com manding serious and often thoughtful effort. He does not venture the mis take of trying to excel in travesty, but makes his role of a cold and calculating master of court intrigue a kind of dignified “safety zone” amid a maze of reckless driving along highways of comedy. His abilities are finely favored in a soliloquy on human love; poem of genuine excellence which should arouse curiosity as to Its authorship. The stage pictures are revelations of creative imagination fortified by un limited resources. At times they seem to threaten almost a superfluity of splendor. As a revelation of feminine beauty the spectacle is transcendant —the costuiAes, gorgeous as they are, cannot put into the background the physical graces of those who wear them. “Fioretta,” with its assemblage of artists of all kinds, is sure to rank as one of the greatest musical mergers of the year. PHILANDER JOHNSON. BELASCO—“Hit the Deck.” A large audience and liberal applause registered the public’s approval last night of musical comedy at stock prices. “Hit the Deck,” by the Savoy company, received a highly complimentary wel come at the Belasco, Kate Smith win ning several curatin calls as Lavinia, coffee house cook at the Newport docks, where Reene Hamilton, as Loo Loo Martin, falls In love with a sailor. How woman’s love clings to a fickle, care free sailor and triumphs over many hardships is the thread of romance that makes it a sentimental as well as hilari ous performance. Frank Gallaher, as “Bilge” Smith, the sailor-lover, makes himself amusing for his foolishness as well as lovable for the sturdy char acter he portrays—that of a man who would not marry a rich girl to live on her money. The coffee house girl be comes rich through the sale of an heirloom and buys a freighter in order to provide a place to be with her sailor boy, but he didn't want no rich Jane,” and how she follows him the world round and rids herself of the money taint, brings in Oriental and fantastic color to contrast with the plainness of her coffee house life. The pompous colored woman, guardian angel of Loo Loo, mixes Southern mammyisms with jin rickisha rides and sailor objurations in away that Kate Smith’s avoirdupois enhances. _ „ Rosa Snowden as Charlotte Payne, Thelma Parker as Teddy Gale, James McKay as Ensign Alan Clark and the three comical gobs—Robert Capron, Robert Burton and Billy Kelly—provide some outstanding examples of char arter work. Edward Metcalf as the mandarin, Norman Travers, Eileen Mc- Evoy and Edward Metcalf, a large chorus and the sailors, officers and coolies In general leave the play noth ing to be desired in personnel. “Hal lelujah,” the hit song of the show, dominates the second act, and Miss Smith does full justice to this catchy air. “Sometimes I’m Happy” and “Loo Loo” win much favor, and Miss Smith’s specialty songs, “Mighty Lak’ a Rose,” “St. Louis Blues” and “I’ve Got a Boy Friend Waiting for Me,” as well as a talking piece, in which she ridicules a parrot carried about in its cage, keep her so promiscously occupied as to give her more work to do than an ordinary comedienne could scarcely take care of. The performance was congenial for all the mmebers of the company, who may now be regarded as having es tablished themselves as Washington favorites. POLI'S —“One Mile Up.” “One Mile Up,” a thriller In three acts by McElbert Moore, Earl Crooker and Lowell Brentano, presented by Jimmie Cooper, opened and ended with an ‘air disaster” at Poll’s Theater last night, with the members of the audience in various stages of nervous prostration. But according to the latest Information available, the Zeppelin that-started from New York last night for Berlin, and which made such a mess of things en route, will start again tonight. Do not let the disaster mentioned above keep you from being aboard. “One Mile Up" was evidently written before the Graf Zeppelin came to the United States last year. But according to some of the interviews given by peevish passengers at Lakehurst when the Graf Zeppelin landed, about the only things lacking aboard that famous ship to make the voyage a nightmare were a stowaway with leprosy and a mysterious series of murders and sudden death. The authors of “One Mile Up” have sought to remedy such deficiencies, and they have succeeded admirably. At Poll’s, with the assistance of Ingenious stage settings which leave nothing to the imagination, they have undertaken to show what might happen if a ship of the air had on its passenger list the inventor of a mysterious formula that would destroy the world, at least five persons who wanted to get this formula, one wild-eyed newspaper reporter and ' a very fine and up-to-date leper, work ing under the impression that he ought ! to share his leprosy with others. What would happen? Well, there’s no telling, but “One Mile Up’’ offers fascinating suggestions. And before any member of I the audiences which witness “One ; Mile Up’’ this week steps aboard a Zep j pelin in the future you may be sure that he is going to ask the captain if ; there are any lepers on board. If there are, he will go by* the old-fashioned ! route and stick to the steamboats. To describe what takes place during “One Mile Up” would be unfair. But i there are certain statements which must be made. One is that “One Mile Up” 1 ought to start on time, although it does require time to build as fine a Zeppelin as there is at Poli’s. Another is that if the public wants thrillers, and the pro ducers seem to think that that is what the public wants, there’s a fine one, well , done, at Poli’s. The cast is large and generally ca pable. The work of Rose Hobart as Wynne Madison is well done, and Wallis Clark gets away well with the rather difficult business of impersonating a hard-boiled captain of a Zeppelin with ’ a lot of trouble on board. Edwards Wood may be too excitable as Del Rod man, the reporter, but—what a lot there | was to get excited about! STRAND—-“Step Along.” Burlesque shows are generally pretty ; much alike in the ingredients relied upon for entertainment, and one bur lesque show is a sort of twin brother or twin sister to the other, except that sometimes a leader like Lena Daley comes along, and although the costumes of her show, perhaps, are no more at tractive, the settings no more magnificent and the girls run about the same in good looks, singing and dancing ability, one finds something different. “Step Along” has a homely name that doesn’t mean a great deal, but Lena Daley and her comedian, Lew Lewis, manage to work into the show that something which tells. In consequence the patrons of the Strand Theater at yesterday’s performances seemed to find what they liked and they let the world, at least the Strand w'orld, know it. But the show is not all furnished by Lena Daley and Lew Lewis. Charley Smith, Florence Trotman, Loretta Lee, Harry Harrison, Dave Gardner and many others contribute their bits in song, dance or merry comedy, that, combined, | make a breezy and attractive entertain ment. “Step Along’/ is likely to hold its own without question along with its predecessors in Mutual circuit burlesque. FOX—"Sunrise.” Not since the “Cabinet of Dr. Cali gari” and the “Last Laugh,” those two European products of cinema art, has the screen offered anything that is even ' remotely comparable to “Sunrise,” from any or all angles. It is overwhelming, masterful and defiant of criticism save the most laudatory; and what is more, it is an American gem of which one may justly be proud. Although we would want to call this wonder picture wholly our own, we must admit that if it had not been for the genius of F. W. Murnau. who was im ported by William Fox from Germany to direct, the chances are that the great American picture would be still in the offing. Murnau took one of the stories of Suderman, peopled it with living characters, and subtly wove it into a pictorially vivid epic of human emo tions that moves in lyric beauty to the milsing rhythm of genuine heart throbs. To him, therefore, must go the major credit. The lovely Janet Gaynor, made pur posely to look rather old-fashioned, acts superbly as the wife of George O’Brien, who, incidentally, blossoms into a real artist. We have come to expect much from Miss Gaynor, but O’Brien springs the most delightful surprise with his remarkable delineation. Both are charmingly natural, and one feels that they, too, were inspired. Margaret Livingston as the city siren, is always convincing. The supporting cast is ex cellent, especially Bodil Rosing. Few directors get much out of their photography or tell so much with so few subtitles as Murnau, but there is perhaps only one Murnau in the world. Sound effects are synchronized with the film and although the sheer force of drama and artistry would make "Sun rise” a masterpiece, even in silence, the sound accompaniments seem to enhance it. “Sunrise” needs no co-attraction to gain your attention, but the very light ness and freshness of the stage presen tation, "Dr. Jazz,” lends a decidedly jovial note, thereby nicely balancing the somber tone of the feature picture. Fred Berrens, in the name role of the revue, returns with his violin to master the gay ceremonies. Miss Theo Penn ington and Lawrence Downey, the latter being the invisible master of ceremonies of the entire program, sing Irving Ber lin’s latest hit, “How About Me,” assist ed by a dancing chorus of 10 clever girls. Aileen Hamilton steps around in weird contortionistic fashion in her ec centric dance. Two young men, Harm and Nee, warble in pleasing harmony; Madeline Klein dances gracefully in solo, while Mill and Shea bring the , festivities to a close in a gale of laugh ter with their clever comedy acrobatics. The Fox Movietone, featuring Presi dent Coolidge riding in an ox cart while on vacation in the South, and selections by the concert orchestra under Leon Brusiloff from Saint-Saens’ “Samson and Delilah” help to make this an un forgettable show. PALACE—“Three Week Ends.” i Clara Bow has deserted her recent 1 attempts at “heavy drama” and has i come back as her fans like her, to ! score in Elinor Glyn’s latest, "Three ■ Week Ends.” 1 Another of those inconsequential, but, nevertheless, amusing comedies, ! with Bow and a good subtitle writer 1 tied for honors, “Three Week Ends” is ' Mme. Glyn in her less hectic moments. ' For, while the plot is one of those an ■ cient things built on rather unplausi ; ble coincidents, it is well enough done. To go into the story would be only a I rehash of an oft-told movie plot, and ! yet with several new angles and Clara r Bow to flirt through the old ones, the picture is “top-hole” for those on a 1 light diet. ’ Harrison Ford in a harassed bache , lor bit uses his bag of facial expres \ sions to make his last fling before , matrimony an exciting one. The man 1 who makes good (this time it’s insur ( ance), with the "misunderstood” aid of . a little cabaret girl, is played with a . flair for “smart-stuff” comedy by Neil Hamilton. "Just Kids” brings the comic strip of that name to life in a gay and some , what different revue, with the cartoon ' Ist himself vying with the little Anna I Chang to make it go. A1 Carter, crea ; tor of the funny little child characters, does some rapid work with the aid of : a crayon and a pleasing line. Petite Anna Chang is a versatile entertainer • with lots of personality, a “cute” voice and a penchant for real dancing. Other members of the cast play the characters Carter has made famous, , and the Gould girls give the necessary chorous background with no little skill. Wesley Eddy comes forth for a few moments and the Syncopators keep up | their enviable reputation. ' The first sound novelty in color fea ’ tures Gus Edwards, “the star maker,” t in some of his old successes, and this } » done in a retrospective but varied ' mood. The Fox Movietone news reel > continues to lead in novelty and in ' terest, the M. G. M. news is full of unusual "slants,” and the interpreta tive orchestral number, “The En . chantress,” utilizes all the colored lights | available. t 5 EARLE—“Synthetic Sin.” > An amusing picture, “Synthetic Sin,” i from the play by Frederick and Fanny > Hatton, starring Colleen Moore and An ! tonio • Moreno, is showing at the Earle t Theater this week. » Betty, who lives in Magnolia Gap, Va., has become stage struck and is de termined to make acting her career. With this end in view, she has taken a home course complete in 10 lessons. She believes opportunity hsts arrived when Donald Anthony, a playwright, who formerly lived in Magnolia Gap, pays the family a visit and persists in acting her parts much to the annoyance of mother and sister who have other plans for the young man’s entertainment. However, persistency and self-advertis ing win out and she is given her chance, but falls dismally in the role of an adventuress. She decides that the only way to get the right atmosphere is to sin and suffer, and acting on the impulse she starts for New York City to get it over with, taking Mammy along. Anthony, who is in love with the little madcap, learns from Sheila, an actress, that Betty has probably gone to “The Tiger Lily Arms,” in a tough neighborhood, conducted by Sheila's friend, Brandy Mullane, and they ar rive in time to save Betty from utter collapse after witnessing a gang battle. Her stage aspirations died a quick nat ural death and her remaining ambition is to marry and play the part of Mrs. Donald Anthony. Gil Wells, a breeze from the South, vocalizes the biographies of "Trusting Joe” and “International Dan” with piano accompaniment through the me dium of the synchronized film. “Give Us a Lift,” another Vltaphone produc tion, shows the comical difficulties en countered by Flo Lewis in getting a ride. The animated sound cartoon is full of whistles and shrieks. Topical News shows President Ibanez of Chile welcoming Hoover to Santiago, Pope Plus XI receiving the homage of diplomats on his fiftieth jubilee, millions of flowers used in decorating beautiful floats in the fortieth tournament ot roses at Pasadena, Calif.; refueling the Question Mark high up in the air, and Italy's superb horseman from the Tor di-Quinto School of Horsemanship per forming before the King. An organlogue completes the entertainment. COLUMBlA—“lnterference.” When “Interference,” the all-talking sound film at Lowe’s Columbia Theater was first announced, much discussion arose as to its prospective success. Certainly, the manner of presentation is different from the general plot de velopment of a silent drama. “Inter ference” holds the audience and satis fies the desire for the dramatic as no soundless film could have done In pre senting a silver sheet version of this story of a woman’s jealousy and a dead man come to life. Voices are pleasing and settings lack nothing of the elegance characterizing the ultra-modem settings of the silent drama. William Powell, as Phillip Voaze, the officially. dead war veteran, whose reappearance In the land of the living leaves his former girl wife in a distressing predicament, does a magni ficent piece of acting. A reckless roue, whose life had been spent largely in satisfying his own appetities and desires, Voaze, dying from the effects of post war excesses, realizes his hopeless love for the girl he had married in his heyday—a love which makes of his final act a redeeming gesture of self-sacri fice. Clive Brook’s personality is even more magnetic when the ilch tones of his voice are added to the performance. Evelyn Brent and Doris Kenyon in the feminine roles present a striking contrast. Miss Brent’s Interpretation of the jealous sweetheart of Voaze, bent on revenge, is especially noteworthy. A Tiffany-Stahl sound color picture, "Lover’s Paradise,” shows some beauti ful scenes in Honolulu. Eddie Cantor amuses in a Paramount sound picture, offering some of his hits from “Whoopee.” Ruth Etting, another Zieg field star, also sings before the micro phone. M-G-M and Fox movietone news reels round out the bill, with, of course, the usual house orchestral num bers. METROPOLITAN—“On Trial.” , The continuous consumption of tear ful scenes is the lot of Metropolitan pa trons who see “On Trial,” a Warner Brothers Vitaphone production, now in its second week. The picture, woven about a murder trial, furnishes a me dium to bring before the public Pauline Frederick, Bert Lytell and Lois Wilson. The major scenes are those transpiring in a courtroom in New York, where Robert Strickland, self-confessed mur derer, Is being tried. Other scenes aid the director in presenting the testi mony of witnesses. Pauline Frederick, as the wife of a rich but unfaithful husband, is given the opportunity to display her talents as an actress. Bert Lytell, the self-confessed mur derer, with but a few exceptions, has nothing more entertaining to occupy his time through the progress of his trial than sit In silent virtuosity. He appears to advantage in those few scenes in which testimony of witnesses depict him as the stunned husband who has unex pectedly discovered a possible moral flaw in his beloved wife. Lois Wilson, wife of Robert Strick land, has a pleasing Vitaphone voice. This constitutes her most important ad dition to the picture. Her testimony in behalf of her husband carries her back many years, to the time she was a girl of 17. The picture, part-mystery, semi drama and near-tragedy, has a very strong emotional appeal. Despite its defects, it remains a powerful presen tation of that side of life which many desire to witness, but few desire to ex perience. A Pathe Sound News featuring Miss Hazel C. Arth, Washington contralto, precedes the feature. An Aesop's Fable, synchronized with sound, completes the program, LlTTLE—“Berlin.” The feature picture this week is one of the most unusual on the theater’s long list of unusual films. It is styled "A Symphony of a Big City” and is re markable in that the city itself plays the leading role. There are no stars but the metropolis itself. It reminds one of the story O. Henry wrote some 20 -years ago about a re porter working in New York who was assigned to put into type the voice of the city. His efforts were fruitless be cause he asked man after man, and while each gave his one note to the general voice, the note was individual. In this picture at the Little Theater this week the director fares better. He I A Prize Meal From Prize Beef TS T7HEN you order a steak or beef cooked tt in any manner at the Olmsted Grill this week your order will be cut from the first price Angus steer at the International Livestock Show at Chicago. None but the best meat ever reaches the table at the Olmsted Grill. That is why our steaks and roasts of beef are ever so much more tender ajid juicy. 1336 G Street is able to place in the shadow of a film the voice of Berlin with all the notes worked carefully together into a symphonic whole. Accompanying the feature is a biog raphy of Hindenburg, the only au thorized story of the German Presi dent’s life. It is a colorful and inter esting picture, made more so by the claim to authenticity. The comedy is not food for thought. But for those who insist on making their brains work at a movie show it is an ex cellent "brain bath.” TODAY’S AMUSEMENTS.
