i. HOOVER TO WIN
PICffiG TIH lil
Should you go to frank Blixh'a
Capitol theater any of these eve
nings, youll have to wait your
turn In Una to enier.'. No day
passes bat someone of the thea
trtcal rlalto comments on the
shrewdness. Mr. Bligh showed
when he contracted for all the
Warner Brothers Vitaphone prod
uct, which amounted to nfora than
140.000. : It is no secret that the
Capitol Is "cleaning up"-on thea
trical business, and the same
thing; :ls true of John Hamrlck's
luraicii in rorutaa ana oeaiue.
Mr. Bligh wisely. Is not.asseru
ing that "Llhti of New York' !
a great picture, but, ha- Is rightly
declaring that It Is a . distinct nov
elty. All of the conversation In it,
and there 1 plenty. Is audible -via
Vttaphone. The plot Is. melodra
matic and at times, almost absurd
ly so. Soma of the sequences are
reminiscent of those turbulent ep
isodes which occupy time be
tween tap dances on the vaude
ville stage. Some of the actors
are "hamray" but "Lights of New
York" nevertheless, is. thrilling.
Giadya BrocrweU's acting is the
best. Her voice records better
than most women's voices, and
she knows how to use It. She
carries at the climax a good lm
presslon of Vitaphone's possibili
ties. Wheeler Oakman's voice,
which at times sounds like .Arth
ur Plerson's. and his actlnr are
outstanding. Cullen Landis and High street, sends a letter, dated
k rlannal, U.l.n J QlT 4th. from Hal HAW KYW TnT
