r * " - Whether or not a girl should tell
" a man of her past is not exactly a
K, „ new problem. That same problem is,
however, vitally different today than
' > it was when it was first propounded.
In these days of modern youth and
so-called enlightened moral viewpoint,
the problem is denied as such by a
good many women.
Yet the Columbia story, "Virtue,”
from the novel by Ethel Hill, adapted
M the screen by Robert Riskin and
directed by Eddie Buzzell with Carole
bombard and Pat O’Brien evolving
this question, will do considerable to
settle the importance of the issue once

most engaging fiction, are emblazoned
in the First National picture, "Silver

The picture is based on the novel
by David Karsner, which delves into
the life histories of the pioneers and
adventurers who- swarmed the mining
camps of Colorado during the richest
silver strike in the history of the
world. The central figure is that of
Y^tes Martin who struggled through
days of starvation as a prospector to
rise’ to fame as the richest of the mil-
lionaires after he struck "pay dirt.”
Edward G. Robinson plays the part
of the Silver King, a role that parallels
that of Haw Tabor, Colorado’s au-
thentic and sensational Silver King of
the silver rush days. He slapped a dry
president of the United States on the
back and asked him to* have a drink,
ruled a State fcegIslatUfP 'trt’'^TfofToofn
to tfte popping .of champagne corks,
embarrassed General Grant by making
such a disturbance in his own opera
house that the prima donna quit in a
huff, and scandalized a nation vvith
his divorce and remarriage.
Other picturesque personages in-
clude the horde of adventurers of the
mining camps, the gambling rooms,
dance halls and political forums. Bebe
Daniels has the leading feminine role
opposite Robinson, that of the second
wife of the Silver King, while Aline
MacMahon plays the part of the first
wife whom he deserted for the young-
er and more beautiful woman.

From Eugene Walter's stage success,
"Just a Woman” comes "No Other
Woman,” the new title for Walter’s
stage success with Irene Dunne, Chas.
Bickford, Gwili Andre and Eric Lin-
den, the screen attraction now show-
ing all this week at the RKO "Majestic.
"No Other Woman” is a power-
ful theme, a realistic drama of the in-
dustrial life.* The man of brawn be-
comes th^Vnan of brains and then with
success, riches and fame becomes - just
a foot over a woman who twists «him
around her crooked little finger. This
in spite of the fact that he had once
vowed that there could be "no other
woman” than his wif2p
J. Walter Ruben directed the film,
while Irene Dunne, Charlel Bickford
and Gwili. Andre give exceptionally
fine performances and an interesting
new interest to the triangle * theme.
Some fine character portrayals are of-
ferfd by Eric Linden, Leila Bennett
and Buster Miles.
Completing the program is a car-
toon fable, a comedy and the RKO
