D. W. Griffith's attempt to equal
the Emil Jannings picture of #a
year ago, "The Way of All Flesh,"
falls a little short in "The Battle of
the Sexes," which is being shown
at the Majestic until Wednesday.
The theme of the picture, accord-I
ing to the advertisements, is the
answer to the question "Which sex
is love-free?" but we failed to
find any new information on the
subject, even after Jean Hersholt
and Phyllis Haver had done their
best to prove some side of the ar-
gument to Griffith's satisfaction.
The story of "The Battle of the
Sexes" opens with a birthday party,
at a nice, law-abiding, church-go-
ing American home, in which Papa
comes home from the barber shop
laden with presents. Belle Ben-
nett's portrayal of the mother is as
refreshing a piece of acting as we
have seen in many a moon, and her
surprise and delight at the new
birthday gifts is genuine. Now it
happens that a young lady black-
mailer has overheard some barber
shop conversation about Papa's
newly acquired wealth, and so she
rents an apartment adjacent and
begins her work. How she finally
snares the old boy, all but robs
him, disgraces him and his family
before the public, and nearly
causes a suicide and a murder all
comes out in the wash. The un-
1 wieldiness of the situation makes
its unraveling even more complex.
The cast is excellent, including
Sally O'Neill, Phyllis Haver, Jean
Hersholt, Belle Bennett, and Don
Alvarado, who is rightly cast, for
once. The picture itself has re-
freshing moments enough to war-
rant a recommendation.
