The vagaries of motion-picture booking, usually in a hateful conspiracy against movie patrons, have produced something unique at Keith's: a double bill with two pictures in the "best" category. "The Lady Vanishes" is one of the finest things ever to come from England. It is a directorial masterpiece, for Alfred Hitchcock has taken discouraging material--an ordinary spy mystery--and has, characteristically, brewed from it a tense, gripping drama. With his uncanny skill in ordering the presentation of his material, he succeeds in building up punishing suspense, and, moreover, manages to do what few, if any, other directors can do--maintain constant interest, even down to the most casual remarks and the most inconsequential nuances. Comedy elements and other extraneous situations are introduced with perfect timing to relieve the brooding tension otherwise continuous.

"The Great Man Votes" tells what happens to all good Harvard graduates who drink too much, and as such is a fine object lesson. It is also a very good picture in its own right. Although scornful of the ordinary limits of credulity, its whimsy and human interest combine to make a pleasant, more is at the top of his form, but is closely press-oftentimes moving, comedy. Actor John Barryed by two child performers. They are Virginia Weidler and Peter Holden, Broadway's infant who speaks with the wisdom and dignity of the ages.
