Once again the screen presents the woeful problem of a settled married couple lifted from their wedlock by an unhappy legal circumstance. "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" is the story of a man and wife with marital tribulations of more than ordinary calibre.

Not quite so good is the other picture of the week, "Tall, Dark and Handsome." That so-called lover Cesar Romero is the featured personage, in the part of a gangster with a feathery heart.
