NOW SHOWING AT LOCAL THEATRE
According to the news wires, this battle between George Raft and
Edward G. Robinson on the set of “Manpower,” at the Plymouth
Theatre today was one film fracas in which no punches were pulled.
Absorbing Story of
Edward G. Robinson Has
Dynamic Role in Sunday
Treating the newspaper field as a
standard part of the American scene,
and its workers as average human
beings, "Unholy Partners,” the new
M-G-M picture at the Plymouth
Theatre Sunday, gives Edward G.
Robinson another brilliant opportuni
ty in a newspaper role and emerges
as absorbing entertainment.
Ably abetted by the veteran actor,
Edward Arnold, and by such up-and
coming M-G-M personalities as La
raine Day, Marsha Hunt and William
T. Orr, the picture unfolds a dramat
ic story of the conflict between a tab
loid editor and a New York racket
eer, the former played by Robinson;
the latter by Arnold.
Because Arnold is his only possible
source of finance, Robinson accepts
him as partner, confident that he
build a great newspaper and expose
the racketeering conditions of New
York in the free-and-easy twenties.
Robinson offers one of his best por
trayals as the tough tabloid editor,
Arnold is excellently cast as the rack
eteer, and Laraine Day of the “Dr.
Kildare” series, again reveals a per
suasive talent in the role of the edi
tor’s loyal secretary. Also worthy of
mention are Don Beddoe, Walter
Kingsford, Charles Dingle, Charles
Halton, Joseph Downing and Clyde

taste-good, feel-good refreshment... without turning from work.
