The craftsmanship of Willard
Mack, rightly considered one ol the
greatest playwrights America has
produced, is abundantly demonstra
ted in ‘ The Voice of the City," his
first-all-talkmg picture, a Cosmo
politan production for Metro-Oold
wyn-Mayer which opened at the
Texas Theater last night.
• The Voice of the City," grimly
realistic, is a fast-moving melo
drama of a boy's break from Sing
Sing, the search for him by a ruth
less detective, the boy's breathless
romance and his eventual clearance
of the charge which jailed him. It
all takes place within the space of
twenty-four hours and because of
this contraction it moves with ex
press-tram speed, the dialogue tend
ing to speed up the action rather
than retard it.
Its setting is the underworld of
a great city, and shows in vivid
fashion the life of those people who
live in fear of the law. There is
deception, double-crossing, violence,
fear and hatred all Intermingled.
Yet through this plot of shadows
there runs a shining thread of ro
mance. In fact, the love story is un
, usually tender and appealing, con
trasted as it is with the grim terror
; of the man hunt.
Robert Ames is splendid as the
boy. harried, innocent and confused,

He makes th" detective thoroughly

his ruthlessness. Mack secured au
