Leslie Howard Plays
Lead in Rivoli
Surrounded by one of the largest
casts In her long career and di
rected by Frank Borzage, two-time
Academy winner, Mary Pickford
comes to the Rivoli theatre Sun
day in “Secrets," an adaptation of
the celebrated stage play by Rudolf
Besier and May Edgington. And
thus, according to all advance re
ports, motion picture fans will see
the star in one of the best pictures
she has made.
“Secrets” gives Miss Pickford
what she believes is an ideal vehi
cle. In the first place, it is “motion
picture” from beginning to end,
and in the second place the story
is a simple one of love and elemen
tal emotions, with no wise-crack
ing and no sophistication. It is Miss
Pickford’s sincere b$?t»f that simple
tales, simply told, will be the salva
tion of the screen, just as they are
bound to be in literature.
Prepared for Months
Months of preparatory work went

In every branch, Miss Pickford
spared no expense and time in
procuring the best material and the

the cameras were Ray June, cam

rector, who were recent runner

In front of the cameras was an
all-star cast in every sense of the
word. Leslie Howard, English star,
was Miss Pickford’s leading man,

Lloyd, Herbert Evans, Ned Sparks
and Jerry Stewart.

Uproariously Funny Comedy
Team Comes tn Capitol On
Sunday in 'Diplomaniacs’
Wheeler and Woolsey, who start
ed as ‘‘The Cuckoos” a few years
ago and were swept to fame as one
of the leading musical comedy
teams of talking pictures, are again
In RKO-Radio pictures. Laughter
is dished out in hey-nonny, boop
boop-adocp tempo by these whim
sical and chatter comics in their
latest production. ‘‘Diplomaniacs,”
which plays at the Capitol today
and tomorow.
The cast certainly is nonny-non
ny-boop, with Marjorie White,
Phyllis Barry and Hugh Herbert
in principal roles, and Larry Ceba
llos’ trained beauties supplying the
chorus numbers.
Miss White, giggling little blonde
comedienne, the current “hey-non
ny-nonny girl” of the Gay White
Way, appears first wrapped in' cel
lophane, like a cigar. She is deliv
ered as a “blonde vamp, guaranteed
untouched by human hands.” She
goes for Wheeler in a big way.
Woolsey is beset by Miss Barry,
“the best heart crusher in all
Paris.” When she kisses men, they
stay kissed—smoke pours from
their collars and they swoon.
The plot of “Diplomaniacs” Is
meaty and snappy, a frolic of fun
which pokes inspired gags at the
Geneva Peace Conference and
practically everything of current
Beautiful girls, snappy music,
clever dancing and punchy wise
cracks pepper the piece to unusual
flavor. “Diplomaniacs” is one of
the best Wheeler and Woolsey ve
hicles—and certainly their most
up-to-date one. It’s the best pana
cea for all-around blues that has
come this way in some months.
"I Loved You Wednesday”
“I Loved You Wednesday,” the
Fox romance which we take pride
in announcing as one of the most
interesting films to be shown in
the Capitol theatre, comes to this
theatre for a two-day engagement.
The cast, fitting the magnitude of
the picture, is a prominent one,
with Warner Baxter, Elissa Landi.
Victor Jory, Miriam Jordan and
Laura Hope Crews in the featured

The screen outdoes itself with a
dramatization of man’s work at
Boulder Dam, and the presentation
of the Dance of the Maidens, one
of the most elaborate spectacles
ever seen in motion pictures. The
direction of Henry King .who has
such other successes as “State Fair’’
to his credit, is superb.
John Barrymore is playing in
“Topaze” for one day only at the
Capitol, Thursday. The title comes
from the name of the leading
character, Auguste Topaze. He is
first seen as a too meek school
master in a French school for boys,

Isoes hitm his job, and he blunders
into a better one with a Baron.
What happens to the ego of Topaze
when he finds all his adages about
truth given the lie, makes the
story of “Topaze” not only delicious
modern comedy, but a field for in
teresting characterization.
The cast is headed by Myrna Loy
as the pretty coquette whose rela
tions with the Baron first shock
Topaze and then inspire him to
steal her for himself.
“Don’t Bet On Love”
Not since “All Quiet on the
Western Front” has Lew Ayres had
a role which fitted him so perfect
ly as that accorded him in his la
test screen drama, “Don’t Bet on
Love,” which plays at the Capitol
theatre Friday and Saturday.

Over 300 years ago a crude sub

A swift-paced picture, red-blood
ed drama of the heroism of the
hospital ambulance service, RKO
Radio pictures’ “Emergency Call”
shows today and Monday at the
Queen theatre, Brownsville, with
Bill Boyd, Wynne Gibson and Wil
liam Gargan.
Moving with the speed of an ex
press train and teeming with
thrills and suspense, “Emergency
Call” is a strikingly human docu
ment of the colorful careers of a
young ambulance dcotor and his
driver. Bill Boyd, as Joe Bradley,
is the idelaistic and courageous
interne. William Gargan, as Steve
Brennan, is a wise-cracking devil
may- care driver. Their dangerous
and exciting adventures in oppos
ing a gang of ambulance chasing
racketeers provide the action.
Trapped in an abandoned ware
house, where they have been lured
by a fake emergency call, Brad
ly and Brennan engage in a sav
age hand-to-hand fight with mur
derous ruffians. Police come to
their aid, but not before Brennan
has been stabbed in the encoun
ter and an operation is necessary
to save his life. Bradley performs
the delicate surgery.
The action races to a sensation
al climax when Bradley, thirsting
to avence his buddy, tracks down
and comers the racketeering chief.
The climax of this pulse-stirring
drama picture is the death of the
gangster at the hands of Bren
nan’s sweetheart-nurse, superbly
portrayed by Wynne Gibson.
Boyd, who may always be count
ed upon for a superlative charac
terization as a rugged hero, gar
ners additional laurels by his role
in “Emergency Call.” Gargan
makes a bid for stardom with his
remarkable performance as the
