While Kansas towns burn and North and South begin Civil War, Will Cantrill turns from school teaching to guerilla warfare to get to the top of the world in the quickest time possible. With a woman at the bottom of his ambitions and marshal Bob Seton always waiting to take her away, the plot preserves all the aspects of a rip-roaring melodrama and yet succeeds where hundreds have failed. "Dark Triumph," boasting a lot of new talent and some oldtimers like Walter Pidgeon and Clare Trevor is one of the better pictures to his a Boston screen this year. It has splendid acting, direction that knows how to use a herd of thundering cavalrymen and how to develop the character of a good man turned bad, and a touch of building-the-old-West spirit all rolled into one. If Hollywood can keep turning American history into such thrillers, it had better put the Schlesingers and Bucks on its payroll instead of the George S. Kaufmanns.

For the second feature "French Without Tears" takes a mediocre stage play and turns it into comedy that can almost be called good. There are just a few too many British accents--Ray Milland included--but the chaps are mighty sporting underneath.
