PROVES TO BE EXCITINGLY ENTERTAINING Good Characterizations Feature Work Of Alice White, Paul Page, and Myrna Loy in Lead Roles Alice White has done it again! The public has become accustomed to expecting her to go right along turning out snappy, consistently entertaining little talkies, and the crowds who have witnessed her performance in “Naughty Flirt,” now CuUrITOnL atte 2 an es Theatre agree that she tops her previous efforts in. this unpretentious but thoroughly satisec. tot offering. Alice White is cftteabtedly one of the brightest personalities in pictures. She has a charm all her own which records well in the medium of talking films. She is particularly fitted to shrewish roles, such as she has in her present opus. “Naughty Flirt” is about Kay Elliott, a debutante who has too much money and too many boyfriends. She gets into one scrape after another in her effort to fool her. In this manner she acquires the men before they fool her. In this manner she acquires the reputation of being man-crazy. Undaunted, she continues to mix her adventure and her romance iilladvisedly until she meets the man she really falls in love with. She is pursued by a fortune-hunting parasite and his scheming sister who almost break up her love affair but she proves herself too clever for their dupes and winds up with her prize safely saying “yes” before the justice of the peace. Alice White is one of the rew. actresses who could make the harum-. scarum Kay a convincing person. As it is, she is about the most diverting heroine of the season. Alice twists, pouts, cries, and flirts and the audience loves it. Paul Page, as Alan Ward, the object of Kay’s affections, is perfeetly cast. He presents a convineing portrayal of the young attorney who has learned to be wary of feminine wiles. Page is! more perfeetly suited to Miss White than any leading man she has had recently. Myrna Loy gives a flawless per: formance as a scheming fortune hunter seeking to arrange an advantageous marriage for her brother. Gone is the exotic Myrna of other days and in her stead is a hard, beautiful, and fascinating adventuress. Boberk Agnew is satisfactory as a comedy juvenile while Douglas Gilmore does a conventional “heavy,” who seems really human. George Irving is Kay’s father. Although they do not receive sereen credit, Thelma Hill, Marilyn Morgan, and Sidney Bartlett deserve mention for outstanding “bits.” Eddie Cline’s direction is sure and swift with the comedy clicking along at a steady pace. Peppy dialogue characterizes the entire film. “Naughty Flirt” is one of those program pictures that can be heartily recommended as a pleasant way to spend an evening. | SUMMARY! “The Naughty Flirt’’ is a speedy comedy-drama of a girl who has a dozen boy-friends, but can’t get the one she really loves. It’s modern, up-to-date and ground. A show that is worth your best advertising and ex ploitation efforts! clever! A boarding school backse Page One
