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 conceited? TLR 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 disregard them. TLR 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. TLR With no particular order in 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. Broadway Melody," "T h e picture. All talking. "The Letter," Paramount picture. All talking;. "Ailbi," United Artists picture. All talking. "The Dance of Life," Paramount picture. AU talking. "Show Boat," Universal picture. S. Basset & Sons 4fe Name. 140 VV.

Robert Benchley in "The Treasurer's Report" is, I think, the best short subject of the year. TLR The year's screen has been studded with brilliant spots among which I recall the color of "Gold Diggers of Broadway," "it's an old Spanish custom" from "Bulldog Drummond," the photography of "White Shadows," "Fox Movietone Follies," "The Man Who Laughs," "Lonesome." "The Britten nf Ran Luis Rey," "The Mysterious Island" ana rnrougn uirrcrent Eyes," the eggs frying in "In Old Arizona," Lionel Barrymore saying "Be yourself, Valentine" in "Alias Jimmy Valentine." the "sez voti. snz ms" business In "The Cockeyed World," tne musical score from "The Bridge Of course there were many other great pictures in 1929 so I am plac- SMOKIXG TOBACCO Now let thu Edgeworth come! H I' "I Part Edgeworth .'own and kLLLLLpLH of San Luis Rey," the last scene In "Show Boat" and the startling use of music throughout that picture. From "The Dance of Life" I vividly remember the "beef trust" chorus nnd the execution of the chorus work in "The Hollywood Revue" stands out prominently. TLR My Mind's note book shows WaltIn "Gentlemen er Huston of the Press," In Ruth Chnttcrton "Madame X," Jeanne Eagles In Letter," Dorothy Burgess In "The "In Old Arizona," Conrad Vclght in "The Man Who Laughs," Thomas Jnckson in "Brondwny" nnd Norma Shearer in "The Last of Mrs. Chey-ncas being great performances. The subtitles and the direction of the songs In "The Trespasser," "The Broadway Melody," the halfwitted night watchman In "Alibi" snylng "Nn, na, Tommle, I got an nlibl", the river scenes In "Show Boat," the direction of "Hallelujah," Owen Moore saying "rat" in "Side Street," Will Rogers saying "It's awful doubtful" in "They Had To Sec Paris," the dialogue in "The Coconnuts," nnd the English accents of so many talking pictures occupy brilliant positions in my memory. TLR So we come to the end of 1929. It a great year for the once has been silent drama and is characterized, I pro should say, by ductions, an attempt to do things on too grand a scale and an almost complete revision of the motion pic turc studios and theaters of the na tion. To those kind individuals who have read this resume of the local cinema I wish (and they certainly deserve it) a very MERRY CHRISTMAS! CAMPUS HANG OUT ;j g M. A. Mangione & Co.
