"The Doctor's Secret" Proves to be a Talking Picture as Good as Most and Little Gene Has Disappeared

By A. H. H. jr.

This week's all-talking offering at the Metropolitan. "The Doctor's Secret," is definitely above the average of such productions. The story, founded upon a play by Sir James Barrie, gives Ruth Chatterton the opportunity to turn in one of the best performances of the year. As the wife who is frustrated in an attempt to escape from an unhappy married life, she succeeds in presenting a vivid and subtle characterization. The plot is simple but furnishes the able cast with a very interesting problem in domestic ethics.

The stage show is more elaborate and more gaudy than ever. It is somewhat too long, but under the able leadership of Ted Claire, presents some very good features. The best is an aerobatic act which contains amasing feats of agility and the right kind of accompanying humor.
