ALICE DAY AN IRISH LASS IN NEW COMEDY
"Kitty From Killarney" Latest Vehicle of Only Girl Star of Sennett Firmament
Kitty O'Neill, as green as they come just off the boat from the Emerald Isle, is the role protrayed by Alice in Mack Sennett's latest laugh opus called "Kitty from Killarney," which will be the comed feature of the bill ______ at the ______ Theatre.
Kitty, a little bit of the salt of the earth for the great American Melting Pot, comes over in company with a lot of other new Americans in pursuit of Life, Liberty and Parking Space, having received a missive from Eddie, her girlhood sweetheart, that he is ow a big man in the shoe business and ready to take her on for better or worse and all the rest of it.
So Kitty arrives in all her Irish glory and is taken in hand by Papa Levy -- when he came over he was nothing -- now he's an Elk, an Eagle and a Moose. Kitty meets up with Danny, a copy and, like all New York cops, a true son of Erin. He is more than willing to take her on for steady company, but she tells him that she is more or less engaged to a big man in the show business.
She finally locates Eddie only to find out that his big show business consists of a corner boot-black stand. Her Irish ire is also further roused by the fact that he has fallen for a fancy dame naed Rosa Cremona and forgotten everything Irish -- except cops. Eddie considers himself some hoofer, so he eters as a contestant for honors on Amateur Night a the local theatre.
Alice attends the show in company with Papa Levy who has staked Eddie to a dress suit, much against his better judgement. Eddie comes on with his new sweetie, rosa and starts to do his stuff. It isn't long before the audience gets warned up and things begin coming his way in the form of a varied array of cabbages, tomatoes and other vegetables. By the time the customers get through with him Eddie's face and papa Levy's suit are sadly in need of a dry cleaning, and Alice just to prove that big show men are nothing in her young life, intimates to Danny that he's just about the swellest cop that ever saw a movie show for nothing.
An excellent Mack Sennett case supports Miss Day in this comedy, Eddie Quillan is the would-be actor, Rosa is portrayed by Maria macDonald, Max Davidson gives one of his inimitable Jewish character portrayals as Papa Levy, while Danny O'Shea lives up to his Irish name as the hadsome cop. Eddie Cline one of the best comedy directors in pictures today, hadled the megaphone.

Danny O'Shea, who appears in "Kitty From Killarney," a new Mack Sennett comedy coming ..... to the ..... Theatre, was one of the most opular dancers on the stage when Sennett prevailed upon him to work in comedies. Danny's entrance into the comedy field was in line with Sennett's policy of using good looking comedians in place of be-whiskered gents whose only histrionic accomplishments are pie-throwing. Sennett comedies consist of a balance story, a romantic theme and a plentiful supply of gags and comic situations, and in this type of fun-film O'Shea has made an outstanding success. Alice Day is the star of "Kitty from Killarney," while others in the case include Eddie Quillan, Max Davidson and Marian MacDonald.
The Grand Theatre, a creadle of Art where many an ambitious amateur was rocked to sleep, is the scene of a hilarious sequence in "Kitty From Killarney," the new Mack Sennett comedy which comes to ..... to the Theatre. Eddie Quillan, a boot-black with the notion he'd make a great actor, comes on and starts to do his stuff. It isn't long before things come his way in the form of assorted vegetables and other vociferous tokens of disapproval. It is indeed a riotous show and one of the highlights of a comedy that is said to be one of Mack Sennett's best.
Irrepressible Alice Day again scores as the stellar comedienne in "Kitty From Killarney," a new Mack Sennett comedy coming ..... to the ..... Theatre. Alice, charming, dainty and demure as ever, scampers through two reels of some of the merriest monkey-shines Mack Sennett has ever turned out. And with the admirable support of Eddie Quillan, Danny O'Shea, Max Davidson and Marian MacDonald she leaves nothing to be desired when it comes to provoking laughter.
