patriotic and impulsive, but entirely
"Father and Son" which Is the big
feature in the Nelson bill today tells
a gripping story of a gilded youth who
eventually makes a matt of himself. It
is full of striking situations and keeps
so close to real everyday possibilities
that one can mentally dig up a living
parallct to many of the Incidents portrayed.
Along with this there Is a "Grant,
Police, Reporter" episode, in which
Ollle Klrby and the daredevil Larkin
do some almost unbelievable stunts,
at risk of life and limb.
