The new Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer

LUfory of the screen, and now
playing at the .Capitol theater, is
unique In the first place, the
director, Edward Sedgwick, filmed
the World Series.' took its crucial
plays sod wore them into a dra
matic .background for his story.
'I tiousands of yelling fans, in
grandstands; the nation's two
foremost teams at death grips
this is the beginning or postulate
of the picture.
In this is woven an intimate
story "of American baseball; the
story of a young Mbusber" who
learns, .to .pitch, makes the big
team, -becomes a star, gets the
"swelled head" thereby and
then learns the greatest lesson of
life. - -
It. is just life itself told amid;
the surg and thunder of the great
"High Hat." Robert Kane's
latest comedy featuring Ben Lyon.
Sam Hardy and Mary Brian, shows
at the Elsinore today only.
A.satire on studio life, the pic

movie life, from the romance of
the extras to the temperaments of
stars and d ireetbr.

to a day insid, a great picture

commended as a screen travelogue

Ben Lyon U particularly appeal

Mary Brian does a turnabout from
the Barrie- type of role she has
heretofore played, and gives a
eplendid performance as a sophis

It is Saui Hardy, however, who.
rivals Ben for the honors of the
show. A a conceited, self-con-M-ious
ham actor, he contributes
ii. u h to the comedy.

This little squirming individ
ual proved not only annoying to
the audience, but also to the ae-
tors on the stage, who imagined
the boy about to fall onto the stage
or into the orchestra, lie kept on
plucking out almost the entire
plush covering of the railing,
twisting, turning, fumbling,
scratching, without reprimand
from his elders. The dialogue on
the' stage nor action of the play
ers could divert his attention from
the red plush material.
Eventually. Otis Skinner made
his appearance in his reckless,
dare-devil personality that he as
sumes 90 well in the role of Col
onel Philippe Rridau. This aroused
Che little boy's decided attention,
and especially so when Mr. Skin
ner bangs his cane heavily on the
table, with the outcry of "Well,
do I see my uncle!" All eyes and
ears was the little lad thereafter
until a certain scene in Act. 3. In
this scene the leading lady as the
intriguing Flora tries to beguil
Mr. Skinner, as Philippe, whom
she has every reason in the play
j to hate most bitterly, changes her
attitude suddenly and coyly asks
"Do you believe in dreams?" to
which Philippe replies. "To h
with dreams!" the boy, after that,
fairly sat upon the railing, all in
terest; he liked the .blustering,
swaggering and blunt Philippe,
and had no use for the lovely, but
scheming and wistful Flora, his
tsoldier man must not be ensnared
j by this woman. Yet Flora's beau-
ty and charm seemingly entrance

exclaiming, "No, no, my dear. I
am an old hand at this game and
I you cannot fool me." The boy in
question leaned forward at this
and at the top of his voice shouted
"STUNG!" The audience became
convulsed in laughter, the hoy had
