IT'S A HURRICANE OF HILARITY!
"LADIES AT PLAY" FEATURES DORIS KENYON AND LLOYD HUGHES
Intriguing characterizations may be the soul of cinema entertainment, but there's no law against combining with them a high-powered plot, full of punches and surprises. "Ladies At Play," featuring Doris Kenyon, Lloyd Hughes and Louise Fazenda, is just that and more. The plot is gripping from the initial flicker to the final "fade-out" with its fast-moving comedy, genuine drama, thrills and surprises, all building upward to a real smash at the climax.
Phile McCollough, Virginia Lee Corbin, Hallam Cooley, John Patrick and Ethel Wales support the leads. The story deals with the heroine's inheritance of sim million dollars with a very embarrasing proviso -- that she must marry a man who meets the approval of her spinster aunts in order to get the money.
And the aunts, disgruntled because they didn't figure in the will, make the heroine do a daaring trick to outwit them. It's a real punch, that trick -- don't miss seeing it.
On the stage is Fanchon and Marco's "GOLF IDEA" featuring Warner and Meade, five hundred pounds of blues, who sand with a wallop, and Jean and Fritz Hubert, clever novelty dancers. Others inn the case are: Gwendolyn Evans, the leading ingenue, Billy Snyder in an imitation of Eddie Lambert, Leontine and Sylvia, the blonde and brunette, and the Sunkist Beauties in several routines and individual specialties. This presentation conforms exactly with its name and whether or not you are a tee-hound, you will enjoy it. Also Lynn Cowan, "Doctor Jazz, Himself" and the Boulevard Theatre Orchestra will be there.

STARS -- AND THE GREATEST UNDERWORLD ROMANCE EVER TOLD ON THE SCREEN!
JOHN GILBERT and RENEE ADOREE AT THEIR BEST IN THIS THRILLER
Strange, creepy things that float in mid-air; grotesque illusions of magicians, and belief-defying feats of modern magic, -- these form the background -- and in a way a strange comparison for the mysterious story that is unfolded in their shadow, in "The Show".
It is a story set in a surrounding of baffling mystery -- in the very midst of delusion, as it were. For it is a tale told in the interior of a strange "Palace of Illlusions" where decapitations, floating heads, ghosts, and all the other tricks of the stage magician are used as a setting for a startling story.
Gilbert, as a swashbuckling gangster, "barker" in a Budapest side-show, romps through a remarkable role, and in the dramatic climax reaches an intensity of emotional acting that surpasses anything he has ever given the screen. Renee Adoree is adorable as the Salome dancer of the show, with a woman's soul disclosed under the tinsel through a remarkable series of adventures.
