critics to summarize the past year
by selecting what wc consider the
best productions that we hnvc
witnessed since last January 1. Al
though It Is rather early this Is the
last edition of this paper before
Christmas so I must express my
views In order that the gentlemen
who make more money for the same
work may hnvc the ndvantage of
my opinions upon which to base
theirs. Didn't I tell you critics were
It is obvious that I am considering only those presentations that
have exhibited In Lexington. There
are several motion pictures, notably
"Sunnyslde Up," "The Love
"Rio Rita" and "Disraeli,"
that have been produced but not
yet shown In this city so I have to
Due to the tremendous influx of
talking pictures the screen has never
had a year more crowded with Impressive attractions. This situation
creates a difficult problem when it
comes to selecting a set number of
the very best representatives of the
silver sheet. From my notes I have
chosen an even dozen motion pic
tures as being the most outstand
ing ones that have been shown in
Lexington during 1929. It will be
noted that the vast majority of
them are all talking.
With no particular
mind the following- twelve have
been selected as the best:
"In Old Arizona," William Fox
picture. All talking;.
"The Man Who Laughs," Universal picture. Silent.
"T h e
"The Letter," Paramount picture. All talking;.
"Ailbi," United Artists picture.
"The Dance of Life," Paramount
picture. AU talking.
"Show Boat," Universal picture.

"The Desert Song," the sole contribution of Warner Brothers. Robert
Benchley in "The Treasurer's Report" is, I think, the best short subject of the year.
The year's screen has
studded with brilliant spots among
which I recall the color of "Gold
