Photoplay Magazine — Advertising Section lo The Shadow Stage I CONTINUED FROM PAGE 76 J THE SHOPWORN ANGEL— Paramount WARTIME lovesong in ultra-modern jazz tempo. A blase show girl plays inspiration to a dumb doughboy in a Jersey training camp. Nancy Carroll, as the merry magdalene, makes naughtiness so attractive that we're with her, right or wrong. Paul Lukas' suave sophistication and Gary Cooper's charming boyishness are effective foils for the scintillating Nancy. An unexpected and artistic ending saves this from the tawdrincss of the usual city-girl, country-boy picture. THE JAZZ AGE—FBO "LXEY! hey! Also whoopee! You might as -'■ -^well settle down to a long siege of pictures Uke "Our Dancing Daughters." As the title implies, "The Jazz Age'' is another e.\pose of the doings of the wild young bloods of today. Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., and Marceline Day are flaming youth at its most flaming, but for the most part the picture is just a bad imitation. RESTLESS YOUTH— Columbia npHIS story is as familiar as the toothache. ■'• A girl is locked in a hotel room but virtue triumphs. The father of her sweetheart is a member of the school board that expelled her. He offers her money if she will gi\e up his son. She attempts to kill the boy's love by getting herself compromised, ilarceline Day is good but Ralph Forbes gives a drab performaTice. THE ONE MAN DOG—FBO THIS dog, Ranger, does everything but fry the eggs and bacon for breakfast. He takes direction nicely, but the demands put on him by the scenario writer tax the credulity. The j'arn concerns two war pals who get involved in murders. If you like dog stories. THE SPEED CLASSIC— Excellent AN auto racing picture, just like all the other auto racing pictures since the dawn of gasoUne. The young hero enters a race which is supposed to bring him wealth, fame, and love. Ah, yes, even love. But for some irrelevant reason, he's jailed a thousand miles from the track at the eleventh hour. After he wallops the Mexican army, the demon speed yanks himself the length of Cahfornia in twenty minutes. Aren't movies wonderful? EVA AND THE GRASSHOPPER— UFA T_TERE is a real novelty in which the human ^ -'•actors are surpassed by a group of insects. The human story is of a carefree dancing girl and her more industrious sister, with an analogy shown in the old fable of the grasshopper and the ant. This picture was made before CamiUa Horn's American debut and fails to do her justice. If you yearn for something different, see this. THE FLYIN' BUCKAROO—Pathe JUST another 'U'estern, with less action than usual. WaUy Wales exchanges his broncho for an airplane in this one and provides the wanted thrill by jumping from the plane with a parachute, landing right into the bandits' lair. Of course, he captures them all. THE SOMME—New Era npHIS may be the British conception of ••• pleasant entertainment, but it isn't ours. The Somme campaign of 1916 is re-enacted for the benefit of those still interested in war pictures. There is no plot, no romance and little humor; it is grim warfare at its worst.
