Douglas Fairbanks Jr. who is starred with Loretta Young as the lead, has never appeared to better advantage. In type of story “I Like Your Nerve’ must inevitably be compared by the older theatre-goers with “Hawthorne of the U. S. A.’, “The Americano,” and other pictures in which Douglas Fairbanks Sr., won his greatest fame. Briefly it is the brisk recital of the adventures that befall a wealthy young American who gets kicked out of one Central American country after another—due to his disregard for the laws that forbid fast motoring— and who finally becomes involved in a near-revolution, an ardent love affair, a kidnapping of the girl of his choice and finally a coup whereby he wins the girl, saves her father, and thwarts the villain of the piece. Throughout the picture young Doug earries on to the fullest limit of speed the traditional screen tempo of the Fairbanks family. This pace never lags, rected py--walliaam MeGann, who “for several years was chief cameraman for the elder Doug. The story is an original for the sereen written by Roland Pertwee, noted English short story writernovelist and playwright, who is one of the newest additions to the Hollywood sereen colony. The screen play is the work of Houston Branch, who has written several fine things for the films, among them a story for George Bancroft. The supporting cast in “I Like Your Nerve” includes Claude Allister, Henry Kolker, Andre Cheron, Edmund Breon, Boris Karloff and others—each of them more than able in his part. “T Like Your Nerve” offers a rare event, for the entire family.

Doug, Jr. Here Today With Loretta Young In “I Like Your Nerve” (Current—Plant 1st Day) Manager of the Theatre announces with pleasure that the second First National starring vehicle of Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., “I Like Your Nerve,” opens its local engagement today. “T. Like Your Nerve” is as dashing an adventure-romance as ever was presented by the famous father of the young star—and he acquits himself with true Fairbanks verve. He is Larry O’Brien, a young American in Central America, who, while there ostensibly on business, makes it a fast and furious quest for the daughter of the dishonest minister of finance. Larry speeds in his high powered car over gates and guards—braves the gold lace officials—quells a revolution—lords it over kidnappers—and captures their prize—a damsel with whom he rides away in fine fettle. Loretta Young is adorable as the girl. Others in the cast are Claude Allister, Andre Cheron, Henry Kolker, Edmund Breon, Boris Karloff and Luis Alberni. William MeGann directed. “T Like Your Nerve” is a picture for the whole family. You'll rave over it. It presents a new Fairbanks. Page Nine
