What one of the best beloved of
American authors put into words,
Paramount, with Gary Cooper in
the leading role, has put into a life-
like, talking picture, “The Texan”
which will be presented at the
Richelieu Monday, Tuesday and Wed-
nesday of next week, is taken from
O’Henry’s immortal story, “A dou-
ble-dyed Deceiver,” and is the sec-
ond of the spectacular, outdoor
] epics which Paramount in-
itiated with “The Virginian.’
“The Texan” comes in ata gallop
and gallops his way straight into
the heart of the audience. He's
gay, debonair, swaggering, the same
Cooper who won hearts in “Wolf
Song.” “Seven Days Leave,” ‘“Le-
gion of the Condemned” and, more
recently and particularly, “The
Virginian.’ Here he makes love to
beautiful Fay Wray, who is dev-
asting asa South American senorita.
