Bf ri Princess Has Wholesome StoryK
Too mnch cannot be said of "The
BS^'-^JCai nice Star," at the Princess. Of ex-;
I treme timeliness, the theme of the
H' drama is one which touches every
-Ipousehold in America today. In spite
its 'title, it is not a war play, bnt
" gather a drama of the national draft.
B V : .:Madgc Kennedy's role is that of
^^^MarQyn March, a girl of plain appearB<
v anqe and homdrnm life whose .wealthy
- relatives keep her in the background.
Thrilled by the war, the girl envies
. , - the women doing war work, each with
k|; ? sweetheart or a husband at the
ft,"' front.' And when she announces that
she is a war bride, as other fictional j
; heroL.es have done, she is regarded;
By- ' almost as. a celebrity. In the result
ISgy ofrher deception, however, audiences
B?? find their greatest surprise. MarBB|&
Jlyn is sought out by the mother of
Ht' -the man whose wife she pretends to be
Hf||?:iuia instead of qustioning Marilyn's
BBzp.istory sh takes the girl to her heart
and into her home. Against her will
l^dre self-styled young wido> is forced;
to play her part to the bitter end. I
B ' Finally she makes a startling discov- j
Bftr. -ery and learns the true significance of i
the single service star which hangs t
Blip In a Cash Marilyn sees the truth of
the mother's willingness to accept her
K^jjand to make the most of the lie she
Bs?? knows the girl is living. This knowiedge'
impels the girl to make public
BS-V -her deception and to bare the greater
H< fault of Hie elder woman, a fault which
HnffiiKiaiiiiriilKie 1am than a crime aeainst
'the government. From then on "The
Hv 'Service Star" abounds in tense action
and powerful moments.
