At The Theatres
Clara Bow the “It” girl Is the at
traction at the Princes today and
tomorrow. The piece is rightly en
titled "Wild Party” and it is just
exactly that. It is the immortal
Clara's first talkie, and goes over
with a whoop. Filled with Jazz and
whoopee, it is entertaining from
start to finish. In addition to the
regular program a two reel talkie
comedy enlivens the interest, and
there are other program attractions.
A1 Jolson’s “Jazz Singer” is hold
ing the centre of the stage again
today at the Webb. This piece, re
puted to be better, both from the
standpoint of plot and presentation,
than "The Singing Fool,” filled
the house last night. The story re
vealed by this screen masterpiece is
acutely human and appealing. The
father’s ambition for the boy is one
thing, but the boy’s dream is anoth
er. The conflict makes the picture.
