AT THE PARAMOUNT AND FENWAY

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Although some fortunate individual got $5,000 for thinking up the title of the new feature at the Paramount and Fenway, "Of Human Hearts" really deals with human values, and has little or no love interest. Loyalty, gratitude, unselfishness, the relative worth of spiritual and material welfare, these are the values which James Stewart learns, slowly, painfully, in a picture as fine as it is occasionally lugubrious. Walter Huston and Beulah Bondi, who are cast as Mr. Stewart's parents, impecunious Ohio settlers, bring dignity and feeling to their parts. A pseudo-historical epic, "Of Human Hearts" has many flaws, but is so sympathetic that one is inclined to overlook them. "Swing Your Lady," on the same bill, is not recommended.
