-"THE PURSUIT OF1
HAPPINESS"
A Paramount picture starring Fran-
cis Lederer, with Joan Bennett, Charles1
Ruggles, and Mary Boland, and under
the direction of Alexander Hall. A

Simple?" Pete Smith on "Rugby." and
the newsreel.
If there is anything that we despise
in the way of motion pictures, it is
deceit.*'We give "The Pursuit of Hap-
piness" the above rating because it is
so disappointing that it is deceitful.
For many years, we have heard a
great deal about the colonial institu-
tion of bundling. In fact, we evenI
read something or other about it in,
history. We had imagined great things
about it (which, however, is not to be
interpreted as an aspersion upon ourj
character). When we read the ad-j
yances on this picture, we took our
seat in the theatre expecting some-
thing subtle and delightfully "smut-
ty," (if we may use a trite expres-
sion) - something like "Reunion in
Vienna." Not that we particularly go
in for that sort of stuff, but if it's
clever enough, it is a pleasant change.
"The Pursuit of Happiness" failed

imagination than we possess, to see
one thing that was little more than
off color. (This statement will prob-
ably discourage more people than
anything else).
Well, let's get down to the picture.
Francis Lederer, who has a most de-
lightful accent, is a Hessian soldier
in the Revolutionary war who has de-
serted to seek his chances with the
Americans. He escapes to a village in
Connecticut where he is apprehended
by Prudence (Joan Bennett) and he
is taken prisoner. He, of course, falls
in love with the girl, and all ends
happily when General Washington
makes him chief interpreter of his
staff.
In addition to Mr. Lederer's delight-
ful accent and Miss Bennett's at-
tractiveness, there are a few good
laughs by Charlie Ruggles, and
that's about ali. The plot is weak,
the dialogue has its high spots, but
is mediocre most of the time, and
there is no real acting, with the
possible exception of Charles Ruggles
who has an extremely small role, and
Mr. Lederer.
The show is not the kind that is
"unspeakably painful," if we may
quote Dean Swift, but neither is it
good. To say the most for it, it is

In the yolk division of the exhibit,
it is indicated that eggs containing
much yolk develop into well-feathered
birds who leave the nest shortly after
they are hatched. These are called
praecocial, whereas those birds which
remain in their nests for a long per-
iod are termed altricial.
