“ Wildfire” first and foremost is
n pi.-ture from a play that was Lil
lian Russell's most celebrated suc
cess after she abandoned musical
comedy. It was written by two of
America’s best known playwrights,
George V. Hobart and George Broad-
hurst, and is a story that is just
as fresh and vivid today as it was
when America’s favorite played in
it on Broadway. It is a story of
the American race-track; particularly
timely now because o f the opening
o f race-tracks all over the country
for the meetings that will continue
in the North, Egst. and West until
next November. And not alone is
it a melodrama with racing as one of
its chief attractions, but it contains
a romance that never lacks in sym
pathy and heart appeal. There is
as much suspense running through
the love story as there is in the pic-
turization o f the big race that means
so much in the life of the heroine.
