AT ARCADIA
"Mother Knows Best.” a talkie
adaptation of Edna Ferber’e b*ok
of the aarne title, is to be the
Christmas attraction at the Ar
cadia, Harlinpen. Two stars of
both stare and screen, Madre
Bellamy and Louise Dresser, are
featured.
Love Vs. Career
Theme of Arcadia
Talkie Tuesday
Love or a career! Which takaa
precedence?
That question ia answered, in a
most dramatic way, in >'ox Films'
"Mother Knows Best,’’ featuring
Madge Bellamy, Louisa Dresser and
Barry Norton, and due at the Arcadia
theater, Harlingen, on Christmas day
for a 4-days' engagement.
"Mother Knows Best" is based on
the widely read and internationally
discussed story by Edna Ferber, said
to ba base don the actual lives of a
famous stage star and her mother
but actually just a similarity dating
back to Corinna and bar mother,
Jennie Kimball, a matter of a half
century ago,
Tho picture reveals the transition
of a stage child to a Broadway star
with a theater named after her.
Through it all the daughter is
tnsrsly a puppet with nsjther pulling
the strings until the daughter comes
in contact with romance and awak
ening in the girl there is something
more in life then just the footlights.
The battle is on with e surprise
denouement.
"Mother Knows Best," capably di
rected by John Blystone, successful
Fox director, brings to tho screen
as “Sally" the girl, a new Madge
Bellamy, likewise a more brilliant
than ever actress in Louise Dresser
as the leather, as well as superb
work by the entire supporting cast.
