"Two Weeks Off." starring the
popular favorites, Jack Mulhall and
Dorothy MackaU'l. is the feature
picture today and tomorrow at the
Webb. It's a First National, direct
ed by William Beaudine. According
to the press sheet, this is the theme

back at work? See what happens
to Darling Dorothy when she Tails
in love with a vacation "show off."
Bebe Daniels has turned to the
newspapers for the theme of her

best comedy-melodrama that has
appeared here in seme time and
during the next two days of its
local run, "What a Night!" is bound
to thrill thousands more.
Excitement, thrills, laughter and
love make up the adventure which
this dashing star evokes in this
story of newspaper life and news
paper doings. Crooked politicians,
gang leaders, reporters and Bebe,
herself, make up its characters. It
is the talc of a "big scoop" which
the newspaper tries unsuccessfully
to break until Miss Daniels' blun
dering efforts as a reporter uncov
ers the necessary data.
