Don't say you didn't see "Underworld." It's1
the best picture shown in Salem in a year.
In His Latest Comedy Feature Entitled -
S I D O L I H T S OP" TMO
"Smile, Brother. Smile." a First
National picture at the Elsinore on
Friday and Saturday, Is described
by those who have seen it as an
unusual photoplay. Unusual in
the sense that it treats of a phase
of human endeavor that doesn't
often win its way to the screen.
The commercial traveler has not
often been accorded the position
of importance to which he is en
titled in the field of business.
Consider that every article you
consume, practically, first reached
the counters of the stores via the
medium of the traveling salesman.
Your foodstuffs package goods
and bulk; your clothing, your toi
let articles, your books, your fur
niture all were sold to the mer
chant by a salesman "on the road.
He has a finger in almost every
pie you eat so to speak.
That's why he deserves consid
eration, and he gets it in "Smile,
Brother. Smile," which Charles R.
Rogers produced for First Nation
al Pictures and In which Jack Mul
hall and . Dorothy Mackaill have
the featured leading roles.
Jack Is a commercial traveler,
lately graduated from the ranks,
and he makes good by his own de
termination and ability with the
Invaluable assistance of the tele
phone girl, played by the charm
ing Dorothy Mackaill.
The totally different picture is
here at last!"
This is the interesting message
received by the dramatic critic of
the Statesman from a friend in
Hollywood who saw "Underworld
previewed at Paramount's studio.
"Underworkl," he writes fur
ther, "is about the most amazing
screen play I have seen in years.
It is a powerfully absorbing story
of crime and violence literally tak
en from the life of a great city.
"Gangsters with machine guns
policemen in a terrifying battle
to preserve order bobbed-haired
bandits in silks exciting night
life resorts where the habitues of
i rookdom gather murderers' row
in a concrete and steel jail all of
these are flashed on the screen in
a way that makes one imagine
himself in the real environment

'Ruli" Weed is'the uncrowned
king of the underworld a
towering terror of a man
'Feathers" is his girl "Rolys
Royce" clever handsome 4

from which Ben HechU wrote the
"To tell you the plot would
nnii the climax for vou when you
see the picture. It is to be run at
the Oregon Theater starting today.
At any rate you'll discover a moral
in it, I know, despite the sensa
tional manner of presentation. And
it s the oia story mat you can i
get away with It.' Crime offers a
short life and a violent aeatn. i
"You will find much to admire I
in the performances given by the
featured players George Ban
croft, Evelyn Brent, Clive Brook
and Larry Semon. They are splen
did. I might also say, that Josef
Von Sternberg has done a remark
able piece of direction for Para
mount, as you will agree once
ou've seen the film."
"Just as the great plains sup
plied a tremendous . background,
representative of the whole west
ern region of the United States In
the story of 49." says Schulberg.
"just so The City in 'Underworld
