Funny no body ever thought of
teaming them before! Admitted to
be the best farceurs, respectively, in
the masculine and feminine fields,
Carole Lombard and Robert Mont
gomery have individually scored
plenty of triumphs in the matter of
purveying laughter to film goers.
This picture will be shown at the
State Theatre, Hertford, Monday,
Carole, in fact, is the originator
of the so-called "screwball" school
of film-funning, while the debonair
Mr. Montgomery is equally renowned
among connoisseurs of comedy for
his sauve talents in this regard.
And yet it wasn't until RKO Radio
began preparing its new laugh hit,
"Mr. and Mrs. Smith," that anyone
considered putting these two champ
ions together in one picture. It was
a swell idea, for they are ideally
suited to the roles. "Mr." is a. pros

end with Mrs. Chappell's parents,
Mr. and Mrs. L. R Webb.
Miss Rebecca Webb is at home
with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. L.

at Robersonville having closed.
Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Jackson spent
the week-end with her mother, Mrs.

very ill, but is somewhat improved.
Clarence Goodman, who has been
ill, is improving.

perous ycung Park Avenue lawyer
and "Mrs." is his determined wife.
Both of them are headstrong, and
devoted, and fond of a good argu
ment; and the hilarities of the plot
revolve about their domestic tribula
tions and what happens to them
when they discover that because of a
technical illegality, they aren't real
ly married at all.
Needless to say, Carole and Robert
fit into such a set-up as if the roles
had been tailored for them, and the
combination of their respective abili
ties, along with skillful dialogue and
direction, is making "Mr. and Mrs.
ESmith" outstanding among the
season's screen offerings.
Gene Raymond heads the featured
cast as Montgomery's law partner
and romantic rival. Alfred Hitch

and other fine films, directed the
