Saves "The Gold Diggers" .î'Lullaby of Broadway' Keeps Film M usicale From Joining the "Routine Affairs' —Good Stage Show—Secon d Week of 'Roberta.'' BV E. de S. MELCHER. ^ OLD DIGGERS OF 1935," now playing at the Earle. has f one number called "Lullaby of Broadway" which is I Τ definitely the best thing Director Busby Berkeley has ever done. In it Miss Winnie Shaw, Helen Morgan's double, comes home at 6:45 in the morning, finds a cat, the paper and a bottle of milk at her door, goes to bed, gets up at. 7:30 that evening, steps out with Dick Powell, watches some swell dancing, does a little dancing herself and then falls off a slrvcoranpr While this may sound a little mad— and while it is a little mad—the music, the singing and especially the [ dancing puts it on a new and high plane for Old Man Berkeley, and it also saves "Gold Diggers" from being a lather routine affair. For. with all due respect 1o Dick Powell, Alice Brady (in her best role), Gloria Stuart. Hugh Herbert. Frank McHugh, Glenaa Farrell. Joseph Caw thorn. Dorothy Dare, Grant Mitchell and "Lullaby of Broadway." the new edition of "Gold Diggers" is a tepid duplicate of its sisters and its cousins and its aunts. Mr. Powell has. with out doubt, the most useless role of his career; Miss Stuart supports him capably—and while Miss Brady is funnier than she has ever b?en. she isn't funny enough to carry the pic ture to any elevation. That "Lullaby" number makes up. too. for one of Mr. Berkeley's rarer brain children—a scene in which a great many grand pianos are seen scuttling about the stage, moved here and there by the legs of otherwise Invisible men. Just how Warner Bros, could have been so careless as to allow these rambling legs to ap pear in plain view is a great mystery. Ycu don't even have to look closely to see the pianos being manipulated around by a bunch of trousers—and the effect, whatever it is meant to be. is frankly ludicrous. Otherwise, "Gold Diggers" is. as It is intended to be, lavish, occasion ally amusing and boasting a couple of good tunes. Miss Brady appears as an old society frump, who is given to fits every time her income gets below the $100,000 mark. Miss Stuart is her daughter. Dick Powell is a young man continually in love, and the Hugh Herbert-Frank McHugh aggregation is as usual mixed up witn one skirt after another. But those grand pianos—heigh ho! * * « * "ΤΉΕ Earle stage show, headed by the always popular Roscoe Ates, is belter than average, due not only to Mr. Ates, but to those two little people you saw in "The Mighty Barnum." Olive and George, who are presented in an act with Buster Shaver. Miss Olive and Mr. George, who are no bigger than a minute, do their Lilliputian act with command and speed and get a great big ovation. Georgie Taps performs his taps with incredible speed, John and Mary Mason, excellent roller skaters, toss that fat girl around as they have been doing for some time—and there are some "Vitaphone" girls thrown in for good measure. Bert Granoff sings some fine Irish melodies against a background of Irish pictures—pictures which reveal a very fine donkey when he is singing "My Wild Irish Rose." * * * * D-K-0 KEITH'S continues to draw Λ unheard of crowds with "Roberta," which is now in its second prosperous week. Not only is this Fred Astaire's all-time record for all-time good danc ing. but it goes the Broadway musical comedy one better and gives you the Hollywood fashion show· for which your wife has been waiting. Here you may see all those billion dresses which will probably never find a buyer—and a collection of blonds and brunettes guaranteed to knock your eye out. Although the book is as slow as it was on the stage and the comedy not too brilliant, the film gets such a boost from Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers' dancing that it needs little else—except Irene Dunne to sing "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes." PATIENT ms FAST ASLEEP ALL THE TIME This \lystpry Drama, at the Metropolitan, Turns Out to Bp a Thrillpr. The greatest mystery about "While the Patient Slept," the new film at the Metropolitan, is how Richard Federie does manage to stay wrapped in the arms of Morpheus while I enough comedy, confusion and shoot ing is running rampant in the same room to wake Rip Van Winkle and · β η army of incurable sleeping sick- > ness patients. On the other hand, the addition of fast-moving, flippant comedy to a standard mystery plot gives the Clue Club's latest opus all the earmarks of ace-high entertainment. Pick any enigmatic plot you like, end insert apple-face Guy kibbee as an Irish detective (who admits he's practically as efficient as an entire homicide squad), punctilious Aline MacMahon as an attendant nurse, and staccato Allen Jenkins as a pseudo Philo Vance who suspects ev erybody and proves nothing, and the result has to be entertainment. If you still are adverse to taking any chances, you can put In a mys teriously disappearing, miniature green elephant, the usual lightning and storm effects, a few trap doors, sliding panels and howling dogs and you have the formula for "While the Patient Slept," or "The Mystery of Federie Manor." or "Five Shots at 12:30"—or what you will. For a plot, you can have all of the iar-flung members of a wealthy family called to the bedside of the pecularily sick head of the family in his out-of-the-way manor, and then have somebody mysteriously mur dered. The police must be called in, a nurse has to attend the sick man and the chief detective must have an assistant, so Mr. Kibbe. Miss Mac Mahon and Mr. Jenkins arrive. The results are pandemonium, suspense, comedy and something akin to romance. By having the sick man suffer a stroke and lie unconscious in a room where everything takes place, you ; are able to arrive at such an unusual title as "While the Patient Slept." However handicapped the film Is by its title, a .small army of not too important but highly efficient play ers make it worth your while. Two nf this army are Patricia Ellis, who flits about to keep you guessing what it's all about, and Lyle Talbot, who does little very well. Top acting honors, though, must go to the old man, who sleeps so well. In case you haven't managed to fathom it yet, we liked the thing very j well despite its title, lack of logic and j crack-brained plot. Whether you will j or not depends upon whether you go j looking for mystery or comedy. The mystery is not so hot, the comedy is superb. A short featuring Charlie Davis and ι his orchestra, the Paramount news reel and other varieties complete the Metropolitan menu for the week. M. W. B. · M. E.

CALLANDER. Ontario. March 16 — The neighborhood made famous by the Dionne quintuplets calmed somewhat today after a flurry of excitement stirred by a report the children's par ents intended to take up ' residence' in the Da foe Hospital in protesi against the provincial guardianshif law. Mr. and Mrs. Oliva Dionne yester day carried suitcases into the hospita of Dr. Allan Roy Da foe when they called to take a peek at their fm daughters. That started the excite ment and neighbors' speculation. The bill passed by the Ontario Legis lature makes the girls "special wards of his majesty the King'' and vests control over them in the minister ol welfare. The Dionnes remained a couple oi hours and then returned to their home 100 yards away from the hospital They have expressed dissatisfactior with the guardianship of the babief and retained counsel to regain control of their children. 1936 LABOR PARTY CHOICES PROPOSED La Follette and Holt Nominations Favored by Paul W.

Calif . March 16 <N.A.N A.> .—Glorifying nationa heroes has become a world movement, and Hollywood ii keeping right in step with it. Films now cannot, according to the rulings of the Hays office, allow a Government agent to lose out against a criminal I The use of a machine gun is ·ο longer permitted, and. even t< ! high-light the picture with pathos, the Department of Justic< agent cannot be shot or killed by the bad man. I Richard Alien is playing the lead Noel Coward is getting the whol Ill l_r. l< LJIU liu.v » ·-. -J Edward Small—a picture which glori fies anti-crime work like that of Mel vin Purvis, Federal agent, who trapped Dillinger. Purvis suddenly became the inspira tion for a whole flock of pictures of this type. "The G Man.'' ν hirh stars Jim Cagney; "Federal Dick." which Paramount will make, and a couple of I unfinished scripts all have Govern ment sleuths as heroes. George Raft will be signed for ι "Every Night at Eight." although this information is not official. If you know your radio world, you will un doubtedly recognize the orchestra leader—he sounds suspiciously like , Guy Lombardo to me—and those ι three sisters in the cast remind me of the Boswells. Raft certainly needs a good picture with correct casting. As an East Side boy he is a knockout, but when they move him into Park Avenue pent houses it is just too bad. There Is a good deal of -guessing as to who will play the leading feminine role in "Shanghai." and I have a sneaking suspicion it will be the fair Carole Lombard. This also is not an official announcement, but wait and see. Lombard and Charles Boyer should be a felicitous combination. in broad daylight ior luncheon at ou hot spot, the Vendôme, looking wearie than weary and slouching down in ι way that none of our lads can seen to acquire, no matter how· slipi the; get. Already the Coward gestures ar being emulated. It is a laugh to watcl a Hollywood producer, with finger like bananas, trying to dismiss mat ters with that airy wave of the han< which is very, very Coward. Spring Byington has been importei to play second lead to Grace Moore ii On Wings of Song." Gaetano Me rola is conducting the orchestra fo this one. Spring Byington appearei as the mother in "Little Women," an* has recently played in ' Werewolf." Great excitement was occasioned b the discovery, on the part of a studi employe not connected with the D Mille picture, that the set-up of Wind sor Castle prepared for "The Cru sades" was all wrong. The art d« partment had been hauling carload of moss, the paint department spra} ing the castle with antiquity, and the along came a quiet little chap em ployed on another set. "Better order the sand blast ovei boys," he drawled. "Windsor was a new and shiny at the time you fellah are dealing with!" LLUtKLl uurs JVAN RETURNS TO THE SCREEN Douglas Fairbanks Im personates Lothario in Picture at Columbia. Because it has the good grace to make faces at its great lover. "The Private Life of Don Juan" is an en tertaining cinema charade, expertly directed and cast with something akin to inspiration. The tale prods the legendary swashbuckler in two ob vious weaknesses of his armor—in telligence and originality. Grown old and sligfllly fat. Don Juan tires of climbing up balconies to easy conquests. In middle age he finds rope ladders quite uncomfortable, his debts troublesome, fighting irate lovers a nuisance. Even the most beautiful of women have a deadly sameness, a fatal resemblance to sev eral score others whose names he has forgotten. He discovers he is irresis tible. chiefly because of popular de mand among the fair sex, very much as if only one model had been made of the dernier cri in Spring hats. When an imposter is killed in a duel with somebody's husband the real Don Juan gladly consents to have his name buried for a while. After 'njoying the salutary pleasure of watching his own funeral, the genu ine Don retires to a country inn, con cerns himself with sleeping, eating and lolling until his vanity is piqued when a scullery maid indicates she is more interested in his pocketbook than his technique as a Lothario. Ere a fort night has passed he learns bitterly that incognito he is a flop. His at tempts to convince various people that he, the great Don. still lives, are an swered with horse laughs. Fortunately he still has an aban doned wife lurking in the background. She seems to have waited rather pa tiently lor the day when her wander ing spouse would discover that a man with two tnins where one should be, gray hair in the wrong places and a slight tendency to wheeze, had best take up some other sport, since ro mance makes him look a little bit funny. Alexander Korda's aforementioned casting genius applied itself in two ways. First, there was the selection of Douglas Fairbanks to impersonate the swain, shallow and out-moded. The second stroke was the inclusion of three such lovely ladies as Merle Oberon, Binnie Barnes and Benita Hume in the chorus of Don Juan's victims. The minor roles are given their due by Clifford Heahersley and Joan Gardner. Short subjects and a comedy fill out the Columbia bill. R. Β. P, Jr. Men Like Embroidery.

'Kindergarten Duse' Scores ι Again in 'Little Colonel' Shir] ey Temple in Story of the ΟΓ South Shows Why She Is Hollywood's First Actress. Everett Marshall on the Stage. SOME of the foresighted prepara tory schools around this coun try used to give prizes to pupils showing the most improvement ' in Rymnasium flip-flops or ad- | vanced trigonometry during a school year. If the custom were extended j to the modern neophytes of Holly- ί wood, there is no question but that all the cakes and acclaim would go to Shirley Temple, who started out as a "baby wow" and has been im proving in every picture of her career. The latest of these is "The Little Colonel," a beautiful bundle of senti ment. mortgages, Suthun gentlemen and faithful colored retainers, pres ently on display at Loew's Fox. The little colonel, you know, was the daughter of a Suthun belle who broke her old pappy's heart bv running away with one of thrm Yankees. The Yankee spouse didn't fare very wvil I in this cruel world, and only the I charm, heroism and tap dancing of his baby child saved him from taking j the whole caboodle with him to the I poor house. That creaking fustian, however, is i utterly unimportant in a film where I America's kindergarten Duse is at ! work. She plays the precocious child ; I with such winsomeness that even the 1 ver? young trade «evident in large numbers at the Fox yesterday) is delighted. As children are notori ously inclined to stick out their tongues at overbright members of their crowd, ' obviously she could achieve no higher praise than the paddy-whacking of tiny paws. The high spots of "The Little ι Colonel" are Shirley's dance routines Aith Bill Robinson, the sepia hoofer. From octogenarians to smallest snip pets, none should miss these inter ludes, although it Is difficult to say whether they deliver more good, clean fun than the imitations of an old fashioned river baptizing, and the little colonel's mad scramble through ι dark forest full of phoney owls. Stunning as the blow may be to the heatrical tradition hounds, Lionel Sarrymore gets second billing and jlays second fiddle to the Temple :hild in her latest celluloid classic. He is the grumpy grandpop, complete Kith goatee and swallow tail coat, vhile Miss Evelyn Venable and John Lodge are pretty horrible as the pint sized colonel's parents. The latter urns in a performance that would rate the hook in a second-class stock :ompany. The Fox stage show this week Is headlined by Everett Marshall, who itarts off by singing "June in January" j is if it were a combination of "Car Tien" and "Marche Militaire," and :hen settles down to some more ap- : jropriate numbers. The "Wagon Wheels" encore is especially effective. Whatever his song, Mr. Marshall un leashes a powerful and pleasing voice. Furthermore, he actually sings—as ipposed to trick huffing and puffing ι mo an amplifier. ' Joe and Pete Michon's comedy : irrobatic act is Lhe be.st of the remain ing bill of fare, although Ted Adair Jeserves a small fillet of laurel for his looting in the opener. There is also i gag team called Fred Lichtner and Roscella. R. B. P., Jr. ι ROMANCE 4M) MELODRAMA IN THIS PICTl RE Anna Sten ami C.ary Coo per Have Leading Roles in ' The Wedding Might.' In "The Wedding Night." which yesterday brought Anna Stcn and Gary Cooper to the Palace. Director King Vidor has. with a high degree of skill, intermingled the elements of a simple plot into a rather notable photoplay which is both very lovely and very sad. This Connecticut Winter episode in the life of a novelist is an interesting tale of a young man who goes back to the old homestead after his agent has told him in plain words how ter rible his latest book is. there to meet and fall in love with a sturdy Polish lass who chops wood, milks cows. and. in fact, can do the work of two good Polish women. Of course, this author chap has a wife and the healthy country girl's father has given some doltish farm boy a plot of ground and a few hogs to marry up with his daughter. These two people are the complications in the path of true love, but things all work out on the wedding night, when the Polish lass gels herself killed and the author's wife seems to be under standing all. Helped by three excellent character " ; interpretations by Miss Sten. Mr. " ■ Cooper and Helen Vinson, the adept " I leadership of Mr. Vidor, and some R ! pictorially perfect photography. "The " i Wedding Night" sings smoothly along Λ I its romantic and sad path. That is. I up until the very climax it sings along, and then in the last few minutes melodrama stomps in. in the person of Ralph Bellamy, the country boy, who is bent upon pounding the very daylights out of Mr. Cooper. This he does not do. but poor Miss Sten gets in the way and takes a fatal tumble down the stairs, thus wiping out right then and there the problem the " ! motion picture was intent upon solv | ing, consequently letting the whole r ! thing fall a bit flat at the finish. Each one of those three central characters mentioned above does a rpmarkablv expert job, but it is Mr. Cooper who seems to stand out a shade ahead. The next may be in the nature of 3 a minority report, but we really prefer ■ I Miss Vinson's whimsical and under a [ standing playing of her role to Miss - Sten. She is excellent throughout ■ ι and nothing short of superb in two " I or three scenes that call for extremely - I skillful work. Miss Sten. though, is grand. She actually lives in that Polish girl. There are several others, notably Ralph Bellamy and Siege fried Rumann. who do their work well. The Palace bill also includes a comedy which has Sylvia Proas sing ing and a Mickey Mouse cartoon.
