Some people have expressed a mild dislike to pictures of America's Wild West. This, however, should be no reason for staying away from the screening of 'The Virginian,' which is running at the Queen's Theatre till Monday. Rolling pastures served only as the background, with the most appealing traits emphasized by expert photography so that one will make a silent wish to see the place in person. Florence Vidor plays the part of the schoolmistress heroine. Kowloonites have been loud in their praises of 'Something to Think About' which will be shown at the Star Theatre for the last time tonight. With a list that includes Gloria Swanson, Monte Blue, Elliot Dexter and Theodore Roberts, it must be confessed that this was only to be expected. This aside, it must be admitted that Cecil B. de Mille has scored another success. 'Kindred of the Dust,' showing at the Coronet for the last time tonight, has deserved all the nice things said about it during its short run here. Adapted from a well-known magazine story, the producers have exploited all the avenues of the cinema.
