"NORTH OF 30"
A review, by Alvin Blake.
The written word is at best an in-
adequate means of bringing to life the'
picturesque pioneering days of the
United States, with its glamour and
hardships so peculiar to the history
a of this country. The actual hardy!
picneer had died out, and even his
costume is a thing of the past, but the
lure of his trials and happy-go-lucky
The cinema, as was prophesied at
the inception of this new industry,
has become one of the most important
modern factors in preserving not only
tradition, but in bringing to life thej
days that seemed destined for oblivion.
In "North of 36," with its predecessor
"The Covered Wagon," we have two
examples of what the photoplay can
do to present frontier life vividly to
a generation far removed from those
From a technical standpoint, "North
of 36" can not be listed with the best
work of American producers. The
titling is only mediocre, and the pos-
sibilities of the excellent cast havej
scarcely been tapped. Beery, Tor-
rence, Lois Wilson, Holt, all are
names that have deservedly becomo
famous and popular among the thea-
ter-going public. But they are given
little work requiring the utmost of
their talent. The photography makes
use of some splendid scenes, helping
to bring out the glory of the old West.E
Only in isolated instances does the
film make use of the action that is
accessible to its subject, however, and
action, from all accounts emanating
from the period, was the keynote of
frontier life. But were the film in-
credibly poorly done, its existence
would be justified for reviving an
epoch of American history.
