Cinema: Also Showing

Keep Smiling (Twentieth Century-Fox). Jane Withers, heretofore cinema's No. 1 brat, functioning as the ray of sunshine that brightens the career of a derelict movie director (Henry Wilcoxon), in a film designed to appeal mostly to moppets.

The Chaser (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer). Remake of a 1933 exposé of ambulance-chasing lawyers—notable, if at all, for Lewis Stone's performance as the shyster hero's whiskey-toping doctor.

Gateway (Twentieth Century-Fox). Grand Hotel melodrama against an Ellis Island background, with Don Ameche, Arleen Whelan, Gregory Ratoff, Binnie Barnes and Gilbert Roland.

Current & Choice

Alexander's Ragtime Band (Tyrone Power, Alice Faye, Don Ameche, Ethel Merman; TIME, Aug. 15).
