For America’s new defense Army has its Hollywood counterpart in “Caught in the Draft,” Paramount’s up-to-the minute comedy film at the Plymouth Theatre Monday and Tuesday. The picture burlesques the trials and tribulations of the rookie’s life in the Army. The comedy corps is headed by Bob Hope and Dorothy Lamour. Fresh from the hilarious and romantic high way they paved in “Road to Zanzi bar,” the two gag-happy film pals are joined by Lynne Overman and Eddie Bracken, two fluke recruits who get more than they bargained for in trying to keep Bob out of the guard house. Dorothy, the colonel’s daughter, wants her rookie to be a hero before she says ‘‘yes” and turns the colonel into a kernel to make her dream come true. Hope plays the part of a movie actor who’s in the Army as the boomeranged result of one of his own practical jokes. He’s the gun-shy, goose-pimply hero who’ll floor you with his brand-new stock of Army gags. Bob and his two musketeer rookie friends, Overman and Bracken, reach the climax of this all-out comedy film when they take part in some war games that rival any slapstick hair raisers in the memory of this screen previewer.

Robinson on the set of “Manpower,” at the Plymouth Theatre today was one film fracas in which no punches were pulled. "Unholy Partners" Absorbing Story of Turbulent Twenties -$ Edward G. Robinson Has Dynamic Role in Sunday Tabloid Drama -$ 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 Fillmore.
