"A WOMAN COMMANDS" with Pola Negri
This picture demonstrates that la Negri is still an intriguing personality and that her talents are profitably used in this, her first talking picture.
Surrounded by an excellent cast among whom are Roland Yound, Basil Rathbone, H. B. Warner and other fine players, Negri will prove of supreme satisfaction to her many followers. Pola Negri renders two song numbers, and what a surprisingly charming sweet voice.
Folks look for plain, refined entertainment with a little dash of comedy will enjou this pleasing film which has their favorite stars, all billed in suitable characterizations.
"MURDERS IN THE RUE MORGUE"
A weird menace of a giant ape hangs over "Murders in the Rue Morgue," Universal's strange drama, with Bela Lugosi and Sidney Fox in the leading roles.
This shaggy monster, with the warped brain of a natural criminal and the stealthy cunning of a wild beast, brings an eerie quality to the story, as it slinks in the midnight shadows of Paris or climbs up the front of an apartment building, to enter the window of a sleeping girl. And always it is following the bidding of a half-demented scientist, who lurks in the background and waits -- waits for another feminine victim of his mad experients.
Never before, it is said, has the screen presented a story so filled with gruesome terror, nor one which so grips the emotions of the spectator.

WHAT DO YOU DO ON TUESDAY MORNINGS?
"WAY BACK HOME"
Radio Pictures has compressed a whole grand summer holiday in Maine into six or seven reels of film. If enough people see the picture, and everyone should, the population of New Enlgand (sic) might rapidly increase. The picture is one of the sweetest, most wholesome pieces of entertainment of the year.
It features Phillips Lord, the nationally famous "Seth Parker" of the radio. It will bring joy unconfined to Seth Parker's vast radio audience. It should add millions more to his auditors. I, for one, hereby declare myself a Seth Parker fan, radio or screen.

DOUG, AT TWENTY-FOUR, HAS BECOME ADEPT IN WIDELY DIVERSE ARTS
Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. through but twenty-four, has become skilled in an amazine number of the arts.
Appearing with equal success on stage and screen, he has been seen in French versions of many plays. His terse biographies of famous people, as well as articles in prose, and clever bits of verse, have appeared in the magazines. He paints, works in clay, plays the piano, sings well, flies, boxes, fences, swims, dances and is a clever conversationalist.
It is his ambition not only to be an actor, but a director, and in due time, a producer of plays and pictures. Happily married to the beautiful Joan Crawford, secure in the enviable position which he has won by his own efforts, free to follow whatever new dream possesses him -- hale yound Doug is a lad to be envied.
OFF TO THE ORIENT!
Wheeler and Woolsey are preparing to hop off to the Orient and give their Far Eastern fans a treat.
IS SHE TALKING TO JOHN!
Altho John Gilbert emphatically denies the report that he and Ina Claire are to be remarried, they are often seen together and appear so happy!
FINED FOR TAX EVASION!
Richard Dix, Film Celebrity pays $58,502 to cover shortage. It was all the fault of his expert consultant said Dix when hailed into court. He pleaded guilty and paid the $58,502 in back taxes plus interest and fine of $500.00.
Hollywood is expectantly awaiting the return of Mr. Charles Spencer Chaplin, who has been posing as a social dilettant in European social centers for nearly a year.
Charlie, for all his display of temperament, likes to work. He is a keen observer of life and owes his phenomenal success to that faculty, for all his comedies are merely sketches of life drawn with exaggerated over-bold strokes.
UP SHE GOES!
And up Marian Marsh intends to stay.
A very smart lass, this eighteen-year-old blonde who has attained stardom in less than a dozen months' climbing since her debut in "Svengali."
Talk to her and you will immediately realize that she is not one of the flame-and-fade type. It is not only what she says but a peculiarly characteristic forcefulness about her that makes one sure she will continue gaining ground.
