From the Front Row Reviews and News of Washington's Theaters. “Waterloo Bridge” Sherwood's Play at Rialto. Robert sherwood mod estly says that he likes "Waterloo Bridge,” which be gan Its film career lut night at the Rialto with sficn an air of prosperity. He says, In fact, "I hate to admit It, but I thought the picture a lot better than the play.” Which should be. of course, a feather in the cap of the cinema in dustry --even though there was never any particular cheering over the play. Remembering, however, the villainous scowl that appeared on Mr. Dreiser’s face when he reviewed his “American M Mb* Clark. Tragedy,” the fact that an author of such commendable virtues as Mr. Sherwood likes a film version of one of his cherished brain children is a very good sign and an Indication that the films are not waging war on the litterati, as so many protest. The especial brilliance that la at tached to this film, one has to ad mit. Is not due to any particular mental struggling on the part of the author—the theme being as old as Moses —but rather to the perform ance of Mae Clarke as the unfor tunate lady of the streets whose taste of the better things of life is brief and tragic, and to the super direction by James Whale. Miss Clarke, recalled chiefly through her short but electrical performance In "The Front Page,” is a young actress whose methods of evoking sorrow rank high among this season’s his trionics. The undoubted truth that many ladies who first witnessed her emotings found themselves wrestling with handkerchiefs Is a tribute to a skillful manipulation of a role which might easily have failed to click. “Waterloo Bridge" being the chief background for the unraveling of the theme. Director James Whale — late of "Journey's End” —has seen fit to introduce his heroine to his hero there —as In the play—and also has killed her there—as not In the play. The ending meant, it is said, to be a sop to certain fault-finders who invariably complain of the happy untangling of the plot, in this case seems more theatrical than necessary and far too abrupt. No sooner has this lady of the streets said good-bye to her soldier lover, whom she has promised to marry, than she starts running across the bridge, and before you know it— presto!—she is trodden under by a giant shell, which has reduced her to nothing. Psychologically, this has happened so quickly that you don’t have time to be sorry for her—or rather you have Just seen her lying sprawled out on the pavements— when the lights are flashed on and you catch your next-door neighbor on the verge of again reaching for the handkerchief. Much, of course, has been said and will be said about this ending. Some like It—others don't. Here Is a mild (but how else would you have It) don’t. Other than the talented Miss Clarke, the brief comedy Is supplied 1 admirably by Geoffrey Kerr, and the very young and ardent soldier-lover is played by Kent Douglas, who used to be with the Theater Guild and who still is a trifle too self-conscious to be better than average. However, most of the ladles say he Is grand— so perhaps he is. A morbid story this—but well done and "different.” E. de S. MELCHER. “Rebound” With Ina Claire And Robert Williams at Keith's. ANY dialogue emerging from Don aid Ogden Stewart's shop Is meant to be smart and brightly so phisticated. and any play to which he puts his hand, full of bibulous children and grown-ups who talk about spinach and "weedle-weedies." Sometimes this Is funny—but not al ways. This can be said about the new’ film, "Rebound,” at R.-K.-O. Keith's—which sparkles In places, crackles In spots, delights a few and Insults the others. Ina Claire, whose best theatrical moments have come In speaking Mr Londsdale's effervescent lines. Is the lady In this who tries to do a Hope Williams—and doesn’t. Effective be yond a doubt during the first part (except the very first), squeezing the most out of some exceedingly lop sided lines, making much that Is only mildly witty seem absolutely so, she yet fails on the whole of be ing more than a highly affected the atrical celebrity. As far as this reviewer could see, the film lay triumphantly in the palm of Robert Williams, who a* Johnny the drunk was not only amusing but believable, and abso ' lutely the only character of them I all who had one grain of chivalry in him. Otherwise Robert Ames seemed natural and unaffected as the “rebound” husband, and Myma Loy looked much better than Miss Claire in an Identical dress. The substance of "Rebound” is the rlng-around-a-rosie existence of four “idle rich,” half of whom marry for love and the other half (divided), one for money and the other to for get having been given the "gate." On their respective honeymoons they meet In Paris and get all mixed up with each other again. Then, later, back in the “States,” they get mad. and sentimental, drop down on their knees to each other, and behave much like you or I—wouldn’t before a camera. A good deal of this is splendid—but the knee-drop ping Isn’t. E. de S. M. “Huckleberry Finn" at Fox Is Juvenile Film Surcess. other boy characters of fiction are Just parts of the printed page, there is American his tory In the Imaginary contributions of Huckleberry Finn and Tom Saw yer to the vigorous life of the Mis sissippi Valley. They are national characters Just as surely as the Presidents of the United States and the great leaders In Congress. They are better known than any of these— their thoroughly natural qualities are more easily recognized than would be those of a company of statesmen, for they represent Idealized national traits. Viewed by Mark Twain, In the remarkable period of his career when he w’as performing prodigious feats In the creation of living and typical characters, mere ly that he might accumulate the funds to pay a great debt of honor, they w’ere American boyhood develop ing American character. Huck Finn, made chief character In the film bearing his name, now shown at the Fox Theater, was a real vagabond, but an even more real American In the making. His instinctive sense of duty and of loyalty shone through the mischief and rebellion that at tached to a lowly origin, and he was a part of the life along the great river in a day when the steam boats of that liquid highway repre sented the highest conception of speed that the world was able to produce. The play at the Fox is Just an incident in the long story of Huckle berry Finn, but It has a plot In the happiest mood of the great na tional humorist, and what was left undone orlgipally has been perfect ed for screen purposes by the pens of Grover Jones and William Slavens McNutt. In Its presentation requi sitions have been made on the THE EVENING STAR, WASHINGTON, D, C„ SATURDAY. SEPTEMBER 5, 1931, juvenile contingent of the film colony, and there Is in “Huckle berry Finn” a piece of dramatic work which would be worthy of more experienced actors. The roster In cludes Junior Durkin, Jackie Coogan, Mitzt Oreen and Jackie Searl, and their performance has the quality that creates life. Young Durkin's work as the hero of the story Is un qualifiedly clever, with a combina tion of smiling diffidence and quiet determination which is only possible In a Juvenile role. In addition to these, the fan is able to discern in the acting of Charlotte V. Henry as Mary Jane, the girl who discovers the greatness of Huck. natural qualities that should contribute to her eminence In the movies. Others in the cast, young and old, all of whom are factors In a successful pre sentation, are Eugene Pallette, Clar ence Muse, Jane Darwell, Oscar Apfel, Lillian Harmer, Guy Oliver, Clara Blandlck, Warner Richmond, Doris Short and Cecil Weston. The most notable feature Is that In which Huck routs the robbers of his young friehd’s home with a strik ing battle in the cellar, while the display of qbaracters In the school room scene is worthy of attention. The stage show at the Fox In cludes the Fanchon and Marco "Olympic Games” Idea, with a pro gram which Includes Paul Remos and his midgets, Hal Haig, Francla, a singer who Impresses; Sunny and Vina Jean Rooney, and an ensemble In which the nations are repre sented in crinoline.

The concentration of a vast portion of the world's gold supply in this coun try is considered by the Hoover admin istration a problem not within the pur view of governmental action. Shipments from foreign countries have increased so rapidly In recent months that nearly $5,000,000,000 has been accumulated. The administration takes the view that at least *2,000,000,- 000 of the unusual surplus is not due to favorable trade balance. The inflow was attributed by high Government officials to the feeling of insecurity of nationals In foreign coun tries about their governments. It wan made known yesterday that the admin istration resents the charges that the surplus is the result of American hoarding. With a large number of governments throughout the world more or less un dergoing strained conditions, and in some cases crises. Many nationals have sent their gold to the United States be- 1 cause of confidence In American Insti tutions. It was made clear that the larger portion of the gold here was held by private institutions and that It came from Individuals and bankers who were uneasy as to conditions In other coun tries. Never before in the history of this country, officials said, had such a situ ation existed In the gold market. The American Government feels that the j solution rests in the ability of other governments and their financial Insti tutions to return to a stabilized basis.

Filipinos are unitedly and “without qualification” In favor of Independence, according to Senator Harry B. Hawes, Democrat, of Missouri, who has Just re turned from the islands.
