ROUTINE STORY (This story explains all the important facts about “I Like Your Nerve.” Release it to all papers several days before.) “JT Like Your Nerve,” the First National picture which comes to the Theatre next is not only notable from the fact that it is the second starring vehicle for Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. — but for the reason that it offers him a role quite different from any he has previously portrayed. The part is a dashing combination of Robin Hood and D’Artagnan—the sort of character which won fame for Fairbanks, Sr. Young Douglas is seen first, as a bespectacled young sap under the domination of a stern mamma, who encourages him in an inferiority complex. He goes in desperation to a ecrystal-gazer, who assures him that his real self is valiant—and that his prowess over the ladies needs only to be demonstrated. Thrilled with the new idea he speeds to Central America, and, once there, proceeds—with the aid of a high-powered car—to scale walls—capsize guards—crash gates— confront august dignitaries in their secret haunts—all for the love of a young lady—whom he has passed—and determined to possess. He finally succeeds in kidnapping her from kidnappers—rouses the citizens to rout a villainous roue who means to win her by much money—saves the day for the republic—and rides away with the lady—all with a debonair bravado which is altogether delightful. “J Like Your Nerve” reveals new powers in young Fairbanks— and the lady in question is lovely Loretta Young, at her loveliest. Mthers in the east are Clande Allister. Andre Cheron. Henry Kolker, Edmund Breon, Boris Karloff and Luis Alberni. William McGann directed. “ JT Like Your Nerve” was written by the famous English novelist and playwright, Roland Pertwee. It is the gayest and most amusing of romantic dramas—and is guaranteed to give a grand and glorious evening to everybody in the family.
