Roland Young Proves
He’s Profound Comedian Avoids Too Many Films and Thereby Retains His Popularity—“Witness Chair” Opens at Keith’s. BY ROBERT B. PHILLIPS. Jr. AFTER the preview of “The Unguarded Hour" yesterday, a local scribe, who was pleasantly excited by Roland Young’s antics, asked of no one in particular the question: “Why doesn’t he do more pictures?” Considering Mr. Young's aptitude for subtle fun making, at first glance it would seem rather too bad he does not cut more frequent capers before the camera. That gentleman, however, obviously knows his show hnxtnnu too to let himself be*>-— used up all at once and then tossed on the trash heap by a public that momentarily clamors for his smiling face. No one can wear out his welcome quite so quickly as a dead-pan comic or the fellow who plays a sort of dithering Joe Simple, everybody's best friend and quite a lovable chap, but nothing to advance the blood pres sure in a $2,000 a week cinema actress. Mr. Young's favorite char acterization happens to be a combi nation of the dead pan and the limperer. He proved in “David Cop perfield” that he is also an actor of sonje import, but the film people prefer to see him skittering about full of jitters and muttered wise cracks. . He gets a laugh that way. and the price of a giggle in pictures ranges from $500 to $3,000 a week, with Saturdays and Sundays off, and a long-term contract guaranteeing an annuity for grandmother if a prop erty man drops a hammer on your head. His Own Creation, There would be no point in chid ing Mr. Young about this. He cre ated his little man with the nervous humor and the minus-ten sex ap peal, and now he’s stuck with it. Pursuing the most intelligent course open to him, he has merely decided to keep the small nit-wit very much alive by always playing him to the hilt—which he does in "The Un guarded Hour,” for example, thereby becoming by far the most pleasing element in the film, and by refusing to let the public get too much Young crammed down its thrdat all at once When a new comic pops up On the screen a gleeful howl greets him from the orchestra chairs, and producers promptly decide that a chap who is funny twice a year is also funny, do ing the same thing, 10 times a season They rush a Lynn Overman or a Charlie Butterw-orth into as many pictures as possible. And then you know what. i — “The roles don’t make much differ ence. Just rewrite the lines to suit him.’’ Many a funster’s death knell has been sounded with those words. Some times they come back. More often they wind up behind the eight ball. Mr. Young evidently is determined to stay down at the other end of the table. Judiciously used, he should be good for another 20 years. Darned good. “The Unguarded Hour,” by the way, teaches one very splendid les son—how to trap A by making him believe he is smarter than B. It will all be explained on the Fox screen, beginning Friday. * * * + Proving that the censor is mightier than the sword, the pen, the barb and the boot rolled into one, "Ecstasy” has been breaking house records all week at the Belasco. The theater has held seven shows daily and business strong at every show. This would appear to refute the late Percy Hammond's acid observation that the human knee is a joint, not an entertainment. Anat omy seems to have it all over art. and the costumer plainly is the worst jnemy of the box office. Seats for Nazimova's appearance in Henrik Ibsen's "Ghosts” will go on sale tomorrow morning at 9 o'clock in the National Theater.

Youths Score In Fete of Piano Music' - I Everett Stevens and Ann Sugar Heard at Festival. THE thirteenth annual festival of piano music by the Wash ington Pianist's Club, Katha rine McReynolds Morrison, di rector, was inaugurated last night at the Calvary Methodist Episcopal Church by two young pianists, Ann Sugar and Everett Stevens. It is gratifying to those who have the cause of music at heart to have tangible proofs of the strides made toward technical and artistic perfec tion in the young generation. The i Washington Pianist's Club furnishes' a splendid opportunity for appear ances under most favorable aspects in programs where high standards of music are being maintained. It is nnt without, nririe that, one mav re cord the performances of two young artists who year by year grew and developed under the very eyes of the community. Program of Masters. Always accurate as to detail and shading, Ann Sugar gave a program consisting of Bach-SamarofTs ‘'Little Organ Fugue" in four voices. G minor; Bach-Bauer's chorale. "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring," and the “Presto" from the “Sonata, in D Major, opus 10. No. 3," by Beethoven. Her second group consisted of three Chopin numbers; “Valse. E minor,” opus posthumus, “Berceuse" and “Ballade, G minor,” opus 23. The high light of her performance was the first part of the Grieg “A Minor Concerto," played to the accompani ment of her teacher, Felian Garzia, at the second piano. In this her mas tery of the technical difficulties and roundness of tone gave full justice to the execution of the masterpiece. If her own personality has not as yet fully come to the fore, her youth gives promise which may be fulfilled In time. Miss Sugar received a small ova tion after each of her groups and bowed acknowledgement several times. Excellent Bach Player. Everett Stevens, whose program in eluded more pretentious compositions, such as the “Organ Prelude and Fugue in A Minor,” by Bach-Liszt; two etudes, “F Major” and “C Minor,” opus 25. by Chopin, and “Sonata Ap passionata.” opus 5, in three move ments, revealed himself as an excel lent Bach player, free and singularly mature in his manner of presentation. The two etudes by Chopin which fol lowed, recently heard on several pro grams by visiting artists, confirmed the good impression he made in Bach, although both lacked somewhat the ultimate finish. The same may be said of the “Sonata Appassionata,” which lacked the necessary depth. Never theless, whatever Everett Stevens has to offer seems to come from a natural impulse. He is inclined toward bril liant music and has verve in execu tion. His own concerto, “F Sharp Major,” with Leah Effenbach at the second piano, is of this type and affords many opportunities for display of agility. On the whole the work is immature. The fashioning of the opening phrases reminded of the fa miliar concerto which preceded his. It lacks objective and repose. However, Stevens possesses unquestionable tal ent for composition and gives much promise. The large audience filled the audi torium to capacity and was generous in its appreciation. El. de S. Husband Dies Soon After Wife. KANSAS CITY (&).—Mr. and Mrs. George Katheter had been married almost 50 of their 77 years. During a recent illness Mrs. Katheter said that if she or her husband should die she hoped the other might not “linger long upon the earth.” She died yesterday. While rela tives were arranging the funeral, sev eral hours later, her husband died. There will be a double funeral to morrow. .1..1— Uni Mm NNTH MU SHSRWOOD BROS, Alice Brady’s Comeback Fight Wins Leading Role Laemmle s bhowboat buccess Inspires An other Spectacle, “Hippodrome,” Based on Gotham’s Great Theater.

He will be starred in the recent Columbia purchase, "Boots and Saddles,” the popular song around which Joe Anthony is writing an original Western musical. Bartlett is probably among the most conscienti ous ond hard-working of the young contingent. He practices singing several hours each day; cigarettes, of course, never eouch his lips; in ad dition to which he seldom drinks and always retires to bed at an hour bene ficial to the well-being of a baritone.

Kent Taylor is the latest to join Lo retta Yeung, Don Ameche and Old Timer Pauline Fredericks. Taylor will play the part of Felipe, one of the two lovers. The other, Alessandro, is portrayed by Ameche. Henry King, who directed Kent in his first picture, “Hell Harbor,” will perform a similar duty for the technicolor “Ramona.” • The way things happen In movie laud . . . Edward Price has been run ning around Hollywood for over a year, trying every way he knew to get into pictures. Discouraged by his lack of success, he paid a call on Mrs. Lela Rogers—Ginger Rogers’ mother—and poured forth his troubles to the sympathetic lady. To cheer him up, Mrs. Rogers gave him the leading role in “Breakfast With Vanora,” a play in which she is Interested, at the R;K-0 Radio Lit tle Theater. She invited Producer Pantro Berman to the opening night. The following morning Price was signed by the studio to a term con tract, beginning with a nice spot of work in “Never Gonna Dance.” with Feed Astaire and Mrs. Rogers’ ginger headed daughter. Mrs. Cornelia Templeton Hatcher of Chicago writes to demand: “Why are there no more pictures by Carl Brisson? Good stories and unlimited publicity seem to be available for actors who, in my opinion, rate far below him in ability.” Because, Mrs. Hatcher, the big brains of Hollywood are so construct ed that, unless an actor can boast of a recent success on Broadway or BelhscI Mou/it aw ie ftuuo* 7/U INTERNATIONAL PRIZE WINNING FILM * in London they rate him histrion ically below par. For this reason Brisson is planning a trip to New York in the Fall to appear in the Otto Harbach-Slgmund Romberg op eretta, “The Forbidden Melody,” for the sole purpose of proving to Holly wood moguls he is worthy star mate rial for the screen. If the Broadway production is a success he will, with out a shadow of doubt, receive the movie recognition to which his expe rience and ability entitle him.
