At the Pilgrim

In "Lucky Partners" R. K. O. has taken Ronald Colman out of the Tibetan mountains, and Ginger Rogers off the dancing stage to create a new comedy combination. Though, it is doubtful whether the partnership is so lucky for the film audience, the story surely gives Providence a thoroughly outstanding workout. Ginger Rogers' good fortune starts off with the gift of a $350 gown, includes $6000 won on a sweepstakes ticket and ends up with Ronald Colman as her grand prize. Ronald gets Ginger, and that's good enough luck for anyone.

Light story and light co-star notwithstanding, Ronald Colman manages to get in his familiar heroic touch. Whether is Shangri-La or Greenwich Village, he remains always the debonair adventurer with poetry in his words and visions in his eyes. "Lucky Partners" isn't one of his epics, but it does reach a decent level.

"River's End" brings to life James Oliver Curwood's best of many good yarns. It is full of mystery, action and Canadian scenery, and Mounties cut to a schoolboy's dreams--crossing mountains, valleys and rives in canoe, on horseback and dogsled, and always "getting their man."

Oh, yes that Duck is here again, and this time Donald is an officer who also gets his man.
