THE MOVIEGOER

At the U.T.

Now on display at the local cinema is the umpteenth installment of the Hardy family saga. If you've liked its predecessors, you're sure to enjoy this one, too. This time Andrew Rooney goes out into the cold, cold world to seek his fame and fortune. At the end of a thirty-day trial period he is to report to his father as to whether he thinks he will continue working or take a four-year recess to go to college. We are happy to announce that he has decided in favor of an academic life. We are also happy to announce that he will not enter Harvard, as was threatened by several publicity agents. But Andy has several amusing experiences during his apprenticeship as office-boy, most notable of which is a scene in which he barely escapes the clutches of a very seductive vamp. Our little Rover Boy arrives undefiled in his native town of Carvel, however, and we look forward with cager anticipation to his collegiate adventures.

The second feature, "Bad Men of Missouri," is a regular rip-snorting Western which should have received top billing. This time the three Younger brothers, Robin Hoods of the West, join forces with Jesse James to provide more desperadoes in one picture than we've seen in a long time. They manage to give the double crossing sheriff, Victor Jory (our favorite villain, by the way), his just deserts, and everything in the end comes out as it should.
