COLONIAL — "The Black Cat”
with Bela Lugosi, Boris Kar
loff, David Manners, Jacquel
MCDONALD — "The House of
Rothschild” with George Ar
liss, Loretta Young, Robert
Young, and Helen Westley.
By MARIAN JOHNSON
'E’OLLOWERS of George Arliss
should find the current offer
ing at the McDonald theater the
most completely satisfying and per
fect picture they have seen since
“Disraeli.” The story concerns the
history of the House of Rothschild
from its humble beginning in Jew
Street, Frankfort, long before Na
poleon upset the map of Europe,
i until the gala day when Nathan
Rothschild is made a baron by the
English court. The story contains
many thrilling episodes all leading
up to the exciting moment when
Arliss promises to support the
bankrupt Allies against Napoleon
and thereby brings everlasting
-glory to the House of Rothschild,
and dignity and peace to his lonj
A gentle homeliness and a de
lightful humor are woven into thi
story, which add to its effective
ness. Arliss’ performance is fine
as is that of Helen Westley, wh<
plays the dowager Rothschild. I
is not without love interest, how
ever, in the charming personage o
Loretta Young, who plays thi
daughter of Nathan Rothschild
and who falls in love with Rober
Young, an English nobleman. I
is the old story of the love of t
Gentile for a Jewess.
Again Boris Karloff brings i
seemingly impossible and certainly
highly improbable mystery befor<
“his public,” and almost makes
them believe that hte story coulc
take place. Spiced with gun play
long galleries of mummified maid
ens, and inky black cats the plol
moves rapidly, and not without ar
occasional reference to the super
natural. In fact the thrills becom<
almost gruesome as Bela Lugos
proceeds to skin Mr. Karloff alive
in the final scene.

The idea is to make the whole
thing informal. The kids should
want to get into it just for the
fun and kick they get out of it.
And it surely would be a memor

Many local boys and girls make
good, but we don’t know good
what. This should be a good out
