"High Society Blues", co-starring
the screen's most famous sweethearts,
Janet Gaynor and Charles Farrell.
is an intimate, infectious musical ro
mance reminiscent of their recent
success, "Sunny Side Up", and will
be presented at the Plaza Theatre,
in Asheville, N. C, during the entire
week of April 21st.
In "High Society lues", Janet
Gaynor and Charles Farrell figur
atively pick up where they left off
in "Sunny Side Up". For in this
latest Fox Moyietone musical ro
manee,-, these two popular players
ingr dance and make merry from
the opening sequence to the last fade
out. ' And, of course, they fall
love, as recklessly and delightfully
as it is possible to imagine. But
theft romance is not all smooth sled
ding. For the respective families of
these impetuous lovers are not on
speaking terms, not. by any matter
of means. All of which doesn't seem
to bother Janet and Charles very
much. They're young and in love
and, what's more, they are out to
show the whole world that true love
knows' no obstacles. And 80 every
time things go wrong and the families
become a bit more violent than usu

trusty ukulele and goes serenading.
And, if you know your Charles Far

good job of it. Especially when
Janet herself, to put it mildly, is
more than willing to listen.
