noyai uignness, wmen is. oeing screened in England as 'His Loyal : Highness.' This picture has proved popular, in the Eastern States and will be shown in Perth this year. '? . - The 'Cinejna's' critic .says: /'Straight forward direction beep's , the . entertain ment limelight focussed on the rich 'comedy personality of George Wallace, who makes a personal hit in a brisk-moving succession of song, dance, patter and gag in the accepted musical comedy manner. Ornate settings, smooth acting, competent general technique, good recording of .the songs and race dialogue make the film- .dependable entertainment of proven, popular appeal.' -The 'Daily Film Renter* states: 'It contains a clever cqmedyvj-.erformance by George Wallace, wKose fgcial .contortions, ready wit, and tap-dancing;'' ability keeps the fun going at a fast pace. In appearance and style Mr. Wallace is something like a combination' of Leslie Fuller iand George Robey, yet he manages tq^create a per sonality vbf his own. It is quite a safe booking, especially for 'popular theatres?'
