The University offers a bill which sits very well on a lazy Sunday afternoon. It's light and relaxing, a very fine interlude between study as well as a restful climax to a hectic Thanksgiving weekend. The female part of the audiences, if there were such, respectfully refrained from sighs and sobs at the motherly Paulino Lord as "Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch." And W. C. Fields provided his usual drunken merriment for the rest of us. In short, it is a well-presented transcription of that touching novel which our sisters must have read, the climax coming when Fields takes Zasu Pitts' acceptance of his marriage proposal with a peremptory "Good", and then proceeds to the home-cooking without further interruption.
The other feature is "Happiness Ahead," or Dick Powell again and always the same. He has a new she as a rapt listener to his crooning, Josephine Hutchinson. While hardly beautiful, she gives promise of future fame as something more than a foil to crooners. McHugh and Jenkins again, and those two catchy tunes "Pop Goes Your Heart" and "happiness Ahead."
