“The ‘Royal Family of Broadway" |
is based on the famous play, “The
Royal Family,” by George 8S. Kauf-
man and Edna Ferber. It depicts
the home life of a leading family of
American stage performers.
But it is not the impressive quali- |
ty of the original playwrighting |
alone which makes this play awon-
derful movie, Most of the splendid
attributes of this production are
found in the stirring craftsmanship |
of Fredric March, Ina Claire, Hen-
rietta Crosman and Mary Brian, as’
presentable a quartet of sterling ac-
tors as one could wish for. |
The “Royal Family of Broadway" |
is rich in comedy, romance, pathos
and drama, it is invested with spark- |
ling glamor—it moves with the daz-
zling speed of a meteor.
Here's good news for the ardent
fishermen. During 1930 391,998,893
