'Craig’s Wife5 V iewed by Student Critics
By WILFRED BROWN
A woman walked aimlessly buck
and forth on the stage at Guild Hall
last alight, a woman with a launeli
of i-oses and a telegram crushed
against her breast, a woman who
was broken in spirit and forsaken
by husband and servants and
friends. And all the while rose
petals fell from the flowers in her
hand, littering the rugs which she
had guarded so eurefully.
Huoli was the final scrim of
“Craig’s Wife,” presented by the
Guild Hall players last night, a,
portrayal of a woman who lived
solely for herself, who married for
n house and for power rather than
for love; who in the end was de
serted h.v 1 host! who laid aided her
in establishing and maintaining her
Helen Allen, who played the part
of Airs. Craig, interpreted the char
acter with a skill that was truly
remarkable. In I lie first scene,
when she and her niece discussed
their views of marriage and of life,
Airs. Craig’s speeches were just a
little too spontaneous to be entirely
natural. Most of her speeches In
this scene were rut her long, and
somewhat involved, and they caiiie
from her with a freeness that be
tokened of memorization rather
Hut as the play progressed, Miss
Allen’s interpretation of Craig’s
wife improved. Her extreme luetlc
ulmisiiesH in regard to her house, her
determination to keep her own mime
free from srandnl, even at the ex
pense of her husband’s honor, her
scorn for anything that 1'cseniblrd
sentimentality or romance all these
trails were admirably portrayed.
'I’lie filial scene was probably the
niosl effective. Despite all contrary
evidence, Craig’s wife is a woman,
a woman with feeling, a woman who
is crushed by the desertion of her
husband and her friends.
Miss Austeii, portrayed by Mary
Graham, was also a very strong
character in “Craig’s Wife.” She
was a woman who was quiet nnd
gentle of disposition, and yet un
it filli<l to express herself, to say
what she thought.
Walter Craig, played by Horry
Douglas, was an excellent example
of a man who is holiest hut some
what dense, at least as far as wom
en are concerned. Mis. Harold,
Ma/.ie, and Mrs. Frazier, played by
Alnylielle Heaklcy, Dueliii Andre,
and Sylvania Iklimuids, furnished
the comedy lines of the play.

The (luild Theater group created
eharaelors which expressed those
ideas with strung emotional effect.

entation of the fundamental moan

part of Craig’s wife ivas my daugh

No one wlio sow “Craig’s Wife”
given lust 11 i«ht at (iuild Hall by
I lie drama department, could pos
sibly liave been disa|i|ioiiUe(l in the
performance. The play has been
anticipated for some time and was
everything that it was expected
Terry Douglas in the role of Mr.
Craig deserves particular comment.
He was splendid and interpreted the
part of a disillusioned husband to
Mrs. Craig, portrayed by Helen
Allen, also deserves praise. ller
characterization of a mean and sel
fish wife was splendid. The artful
bit of pathos just before the final
curtain was particularly well done.
The female members of the audi
ence probably wondered, neverthe
less, why the very correct Mrs.
Craig happened to wear a green lace
afternoon dress in the morning.
This is a minor point, however, and
is far mil shadowed by I lie appropri
ateness of the clothes worn by the
rest of the cast.
Fletcher Fdall as Hilly Birkmire,
a friend of Mr. Craig’s, had a very
short part but it was very credit
ably done, lie certainly “put over”
the part of a worried and sineere
in brief (lie whole east was, to
use a rather common expression,
“O. K.,” especially the cook, Mrs.
Harold, played by. Mavbelle beak
Mrs. Se.vbolt, head of the drama
department, who did the directing,
certainly merits congratulations and
a hearty appreciation for her
Another performance will be
given again tonight at 8:lo at the
same place with Grace Gardner and
Gordon Stearns taking the leads
and Joy Ingalls as Mazie, the maid.

14'illiam Powell has at last for
saken his villainous roles to make
his first success as a hero in “Inter
ference,” the new Paramount all
talkie, now (playing at the McDon
afd theater. .He has an cx-ccllent re
cording voice and, still retains that
appearance of extreme dissipation
so characteristic of his person. Eve
lyn Brent has the leading feminine
role as the hard-hearted Hannah
! type of blackmailer and is perhaps
j even better than Powell.
Clive Brook and Doris Kenyon
also have• prominent pnrts in the
picture but neither measures up to
the standard of Powell and Miss
Brent. The talkies seem to cramp
Brook’s style as lie is given no'op
portunity to stage those superb love
scenes in which lie excels and Miss
Kenyon’s voice is too weak to give
good dramatic expression to their
“Interference” is Paramount’s
first all talkie and although far
from perfect it is at least different
from the rest. At times the actors
seem to he speaking with their
mouths full of mush and remind
one of a Sunday school recital, hut
as a whole the reproduction is good.
The producers have also introduc
ed a new policy of furnishing their
own singing and talking acts to
go with the feature. Eddie Cantor
and lluth Ettiag were selected to
accompany this picture and offer

To an outsider, the time and trouble taken to
produce a Chesterfield might seem as unneces
sary as the sabre-scars so proudly worn by
students of pre war Heidelberg. But popularity
is much tlie sane the world over — you don t
get it for nothing.
But any short-cuts in the time :t takes to
cure and mellow the Chesterfield tobaccos, or
one step the less in blending and balancing them
— would end up in something1 that wasn’t
Chesterfield. And you wouldn’t like that. *■
So we’ll stick to our old system—getting the
right tobaccos, blending them the Chesterfield
way, never sacrificing character, body, flavor to (
mere mildness. .
We want to keep our popularity, now that
we’ve earned it — and we know no better way
than to keep on earning it!
