This movie has not a single dull moment in it,
rom its racy beginning to its "blessed event" con-
,lusion. It is replete with lines bordering on the
'doubtful;" it has brash, glittefing action every-
where; it is funny, hard, tough, snappy, 1932, and
:verything else you may want for your entertain-
ment.
It concerns the adventures of Alvin Roberts,
ormer ad man, who jumps into columning while
;he regular columnist is on his vacation. He
lends news of "blessed events" (with and without
aenefit of clergy) and peeks into windows, uses
lictaphones, flouts gangsters, gives radio Ok Chi-
:ago quarter hours; in short just what you expect
a columnist of the Walter Winchell type to do.
It is this that will delight you. It's what you
fwant to see.
Typicalspeech (or perhaps a little more than
typical): Roberts is ;told "I suppose pretty soon
you'll be telling all the details of the conception!"
(This is after Roberts begins publishing the
month and date of the blessed event).
Another: Roberts to his secretary: "Then add
this to the column. 'The baby will be a boy-
they tell by the heart-beats, dopes!'
There are superlatively done parts by others in
the cast, notably Alvin's gangster foe. Ruth Don-
nelly as Mis Sevens. the hard-boiled secretary,
is also very good.
The crooner and his Shapiro Shoe Hour will
remind you only too well of what you hear over
your own radio.
If you are tired of the usual run of movie fare,
and want to see the columnist thene done as no
other producer has done it, "Blessed Event" is
what you want. Admittedly it is not the first-pro-
duced of its kind, but it is, just as certainly, the
leader of its kind.
Added attractions: Fatty Arbuckle steps to bat
in a 6 nedy called "Hey, Pop," hits a couple of
foul bal, and then strikes out ingloriously when
he gets into women's clothes, falling down and
picking himself up again; also a Hearst Metro-
tone News. -G. M. W. Jr.

Raymond Van Sickle's tragi-comedy, "Best
Years," expertly played by a cast headed by Jessie
Royce Landis and Lester Vail, is Robert Hender-
son's third production at the Bonstelle Civic
Theatre. It is an actor's play, and as such is
distinguished by the variety of parts, deftly re-
-reated by such character artists as Mr. Van
pickle, who himself appears as Milt Stotter, and
Jessie Busley as Aunt Em.
No one but an actor could have evolved lines
and situations which gave every opportunity for
vivid characterization. And no one but Miss Bus-
ley could have so skillfully turned every laugh
to the greatest advantage. The scene in the sec-
and act in which she considers the advantages
and disadvantages of matrimony is one of the
eason's best performances. To Mr. Van Sickle not
only goes the credit of having written this scene,
out of bringing a remarkable reality to the stodgy
figure of her suitor, Milt Stotter. The flat, mo-
notonous tones of the chronically deaf are per-
fectly caught, and in a few lines and very little
action he sketches the character accurately and
well.
The play treats of that sometimes distressing,
;ometimes amusing, institution known as the
American Home. For two acts it is rather lively
:omestic comedy. Then the thesis rears its ugly
head. A neurotic, selfish mother demands the
sacrifice of her daughter's happiness as the price
of maintaining her home. The daughter is con-
fronted with the dilemma of remaining to care
for her mother or of marrying a bridge building
lover whose business conveniently removes him
from the scene.
The drama thus engendered is rather moving,
for Miss Landis brings to the part of Cora Davis
a great deal of beauty and sincerity, while Helen
Ray as the matriarch develops an insidiously
saccharine quality that is most effective. Yet the
thesis, however pertinent, somehow seems to be-
long to the theater of another generation, to a
decade when Pinero and Galsworthy, and more
