AT THE THEATRES
Claudette Colbert, the charming
Krench-American girl who graduated
to films from the stage and has
fame in such fine productions
“Manslaughter,” “Young Man of
Manhattan,” and “The Big Pond,”
gives a convincing and entertaining
performance in “Secrets of a Sec
retary” being shown on Thursday,
F'riday and Saturday of this -week.
The story is of a wealthy New
York society girl who marries an
Argentine fortune hunter—and loses
Iiim when her father’s death leaves
her penniless. She is obliged to
take a position as a social secretary,
thereby opening the way for a num
ber of exciting adventures which
make this a fast moving, well plan
ned film. Georges Metora, a new
comer to the talkies, gives an inter
esting portrayal of the villainous
The first of next week brings the
long-awaited Joan Crawford picture.
“Thi.s Modern Age.” This story of
Paris revellers caught in the scintil
lating glow of modern life has much
to recommend it from merely an
ocular point of view; it presents
Miss Crawford in a bewildering
cession of charming frocks, sport
costumes, and evening dresses. It
carries a supporting cast of such
tables as Neil Hamilton, Pauline
Frederick and others.
“The Phantom of Paris,” show
ing on Wednesday and Tlmrsday of
this week brings the beloved John
Gilbert to his many admirer.s in a
role that is both different and diffi
cult. The story is laid against a
Paris background that is unusual in
, itself and the plot which unfolds
smootlily and at times quite unex
pectedly promises real entertain
Friday and Saturday brings Tom
Tyler in “Partners of the Trail,” a
real thriller for those who may still
care for “westerns.”
“Waterloo Bridge,” which is
scheduled for Monday and Tuesday,
September l i-15, far exceeds its
outward appearances as a good pic
ture. The ca.st is not an outstanding
one although it include.s Mae Clarke,
a former star who is making a come
back, but this fact, in view of the
show’s merits as to filming and dra
matic worth, may be a relief from
the scores of weak pictures that are
sustained only by the presence of
some star performer in their casts!
Here one may depend upon the true
merit of the film itself rather than
on the reflected glory of a strong
“star” in a weak production.
