‘Here Comes Carter!’ Is Unique Comedy of Radio
Radio Film Combines Thrilling Melodrama With Riotous Laughter
A whimsical take-off on both the radio and motion pictures, providing thrills and hilarity, will be found in the new First National film, ‘‘Here Comes Carter!’’ which was
shown to enthusiastic audiences at the
Theatre yesterday for the first time locally. The picture concerns the activities of a Hollywood gossip
reporter and the resulting difficulties he gets in because of his unwillingness to withhold some scandalous items on a certain sereen star. Incidentally, while viewing “Here Comes Carter!” one gathers quite a lot of information on movie studios and radio broadeasting activities.
The picture is enlivened by catchy .airs written by the famous team of M. K. Jerome and Jack Scholl and sung by Anne Nagel in very good voice, we must say, while Ross Alexander listens-in.
Alexander has never appeared to better advantage than as the movie ex-press agent, who is fired from his job because he refuses to resort to blackmail to square the company’s star, who is mixed up in a disgraceful scandal. Turning to the radio to dish out gossip about the players he knows so well, he gives a fine portrayal of a fast-talking broadcaster who doesn’t care whose toes he steps on.
Glenda Farrell gives her usual fine performance as a _ smartcracking secretary who knows all the answers before they are asked, but who, unfortunately, can’t help falling in love with her boss although she knows her chances are practically nil.
Miss Nagel is the other girl who ditches her lover only to take him back when his virulent attacks prove justifiable. A comparative newcomer to the screen, having entered pictures by way of stage musical comedy, she not only has a pleasing voice and magnetic manner, but proves herself to be a capable screen actress.
Others who do work worthy of comment are Craig Reynolds, Norman Willis, George E. Stone, John Sheehan and Charles Foy.
The direction was well handled by William Clemens, as also was the screen play by Roy Chanslor. The original stor is by M. Jacoby.
