What the Picture Did for Me

THE PRICE OF FEAR: Special cast - June 17. The average Universal thrill feature offering which pleased the kids and made the grownups wonder why they came to see it. Five reels - Parkdale Theatre, Lyons, Ia. - General patronage.

What the Picture Did for Me

PRICE OF FEAR: Bill Cody - December 16. Double-billed this with Metro's "Napoleon," and both of them together didn't make a good program. Suffered a number of walk-outs on both features and took a lot of razzing. This is better than the last five-reel thriller we had, but is certainly not a good Sunday offering under any conditions. Small picture of the underworld variety. Good print and mostly fair photography. Wolfe & Williams, Screenland theatre, Nevada, O. - Small town patronage.
