“CAMEO KIRBY” OFFERS
REPLETE WITH MELODIES
“Cameo Kirby,” Fox Movietone ro-
mantic musical drama, will rank as
one of the greatest audible screen
productions of the year.
As screened today at the Titus
Theatre, before an audience which
frequently burst forth with spon-
taneous applause, this great play of ,
the Old South in its musical setting j
easily surpasses the best in this form j
of entertainment previously seen here, t
Murray's voice, perfectly reproduced,
j reveals the delightful qualities which
• made him such a great Broadway
j star before he cast his lot in Holly-
| “Romance,” as sung by this great
j screen lever, has all the ullurc and
i glamour of a great love song, which
i it is. The work of both of these
1 players in the dramatic 'vnse, also is
i very effective and is a great tribr.’io
j to the directorial genius rf Wing
j Cummings, who staged 1 produc-
! ticn. Cummings may " ell be proud
: of his achievement, as he has far sur-
passed the work he did in “In Old
i Arizona” and “Behind That Curtain,”
; previous the high spots of his di-
I Stepin Fetchit, as a negro butler, is
shorn of his customary grotesqueries,
but proves even more effective in his
new style comedy role. His'~singing
of “I’m a Peaceful Man” comes very
close to being a classic.
Effective performances also were
contributed by Robert Edeson, Myrna
Loy, Douglas Gilmore, Charles Mor-
ton, John Hyams, and Eugene Jack-
son in supporting roles.

KELVINATOR’S 4-WAY COLD gives you four different
degrees of cold in four different compartments of the
cabinet. These four different degrees are constantly and
automatically maintained. In ordinary electric refriger-
ation it is possible to speed up ice-making—but—to do
this requires lowering the temperature throughout the
entire cabinet. This may result in food-spoilage, through
Contrast this with 4-Way Cold which gives you
1— in One Compartment—a 40° to 50° Constant Cold—
just the right temperature, science says, to keep most
2— in a Second Compartment—a Below-Freezing Cold for
cold storage of meats, game, fish, ice cream, etc.
3— in a Third Compartment—a Third-Degree-of-Cold for
freezing ice and desserts.
4— in a Fourth Compartment—a Very Low Cold for extra-
quick ice and desserts.
All of these degrees of cold are in constant service doing the
work you want done without thought or effort on your part
because-all are automatic.

infuriated black tribe ocupying the
British protectorate in Bast Africa.

“We all know she Is a false

triumph, “you don’t know she was

disbelief. “You have heard what

Hasmali was frightened by the
girl’3 admission. Her confession,
with the entire tribe as witnesses,
placed upon him a disagreeable
and dangerous task. As high
priest of Mnlunghu, he must pre-
scribe an equal punishment for the
man who had profaned the god's
bride. It meant burning Tom, an
officer of the British army, on the
same pyre with Dawn. It meant
war with the avenging troops of

Anticipating just such an eventu-

drawn into the mob frenzy. He or-
dered the gag removed.
“You have heard what has been
said,” he addressed her, “now say

“That Is a lie,” charged Hasmali.
“Shep wouldn’t dare to love the
bride of Malunghu."
"It is the truth,” ciiad Dawn.

to take me out of the cavern and
take me to Mombasa with him.”

In the brief silence that followed

the crowd an electrifying command.
“Wait!” It was the Maid of Ma-

So authoritative, so arrecting was
her tono that it preserved the hush
that liasmali’s words had created.
She addressed Hasmali.
"Yo'i say he would not dare to

said “He dared to love his Maid!”
“Shep Keyes loved you?” gasped
“He loved me,” she replied, “until
the charms of Dawn matured, then
she came between us."
“Think well of what you say.

The Maid’s jealousy, which had
induced her to utter the confession,
dissolved in a torrent of unhappi-

her words. He motioned to three
stalwart natives to seize Shep be-

whip man. Shep, well aware that
he was irretrievably lost, could not
resist a final bit of swagger.
“Sure it am true,” he admitted,

natives of the contempt, in which
he held them and their religion.

His blasphemy of their god filled
Hasmali with cold anger. “Now

"That’s true," admitted Tom. puz-
He was at lose as to what to
do about it. Certainly, in the face
of her confession of sin. the natives
could not be expected to free her.
Shep was beyond saving, already
bound on the burning pyre. Sud-
denly the problem of the Maid’s res-
cue solved itself. The British
troops swarmed into the clearing,,
their rifles leveled for action.
The natives, surprised by thl»
new invasion, fled into the Jungles.
Then, above all the other din, a
peal of thunder rent the night. It
was accompanied by rain drops and
