LAUGH 'N GASPS GALORE IN GAY GRIFFITH FARCE
If you want to laugh one minute and gasp the next -- see Raymond Griffith in "You'd Be Surprised,". It is undoubtedly Griffith's best picture. As a "Sherlock holmes," Ray goes through mental gymnastics in the untangling of a murder mystery which would do credit to any sleuth.
It's hard to say which the picture contains more of -- laughs or thrills. Griffith, as a coroner, tries to discover who killed the district attorney. Instead of solving the mystery he finds himself in the center of a dozen others, and also discovers that he has fallen in love with a girl whom everyone suspects as the criminal.
Dorothy Sebastian, playing opposite Ray, makes a lovely foil for his emotions. Earle Williams enacts the deputy district attorney, and Edward Martindel, the attorney.
A cheerful and snappy revue of gay numbers from the various popular musical comedies is a fitting description of the Fanchon and Marco "Idea," "A Tune You Can Hum," which will be the stage presentation with "You'd Be Surprised." The feature members of this "Idea" are, Helen Newcomb, late of Broadway productions, who is a peppy dancer, Esther Pressman, a charming little singer and dancer, Tommy Harris, versatile singer and saxaphone player, Arthur Spaingman and Peggy Malloy, adagio dancers, and the far-famed Sunkist Beauties. Don Barclay, guest conductor, with his funny antics, and the Boulevard Theatre Orchestra are also an important part of the program.

STILL UNSURPASSED AS ARTISTIC RECORD OF IT'S TIME
Rex Ingram's well remembered screen classic, "The Four Horsemen Of The Apocolypse," one of the greatest films ever produced, has returned in triumph to a flood of requests from film fans all over the country. This picture, unsurpassed as an artistic record of its time, is the film that brought the late Rudolph Valentino to fame. Valentino plays opposite Alice erry in this picture, and in it does some of the best work he ever contributed to the screen. This epic of the silver sheet, adapted by June Mathis from the great novel by Blasco Ibanex, itensifies (sic) the dramatic force of the original story and holds the spectators breathlessly intent as with swift, sure strokes it hammers home the terror and grandeur of the war -- and a great deal of the humor and lighthearted gayiety that kept up through the turgid stream of struggling humanity when the world was in arms.
The director, Rex Ingram, succeeds in concentrating the great struggle in a series of unforgetable pictures that flash out the quintesence of life at white heat. "The Four Horsemen" is the fullfullment of the promise of a noble art in pictures.

Gee Whiz, I'm sure sorry I had to run away and leave you all this week but you know Rube Wolf is away up in San Francisco and while he is gone some of the other leaders of West Coast Theatres are clowning in his place at Loew's State and now it's my turn and that's why I'm not here this week! When General Manager A. M. Bowles told me that I was going to Loew's State, honestly I almost cried at the thought of leaving all my pals and "friend costumers" here at the Boulevard but Mr. Bowles assured me that I'd only be gone a week, just one short week. Then again another consoling thought is that Don Barclay, that funny fellow with the "lightning streak hair part" is going to be here while I'm away. you'll (sic) go crazy over Don. He has a great bag of tricks and funny stunts and believe me, he'll put lots of pep and fun in the program. I've known Don Barclay for a long time and I'm glad that he is going to entertain you during my stay in the biggest theatre at the busiest corner in California, Seventh and Broadway. So while I'm gone have a good time at the Boulevard and remember that even though I'm at Loew's Atate my spirits will be in a "low state" until I see you all again next week.
Don't forget to do your Christmas shopping early!
