Parade." Alibi (United Artists) is more credible than most crook pictures. Director Roland West makes it move fast by spacing dialog with pantomime. Chester Morris gives a valid interpretation of a young man who. in the beginning, comes out of jail a gunman, and in the end goes back, still a gunman, because he cannot prove that-he was in the theatre with a policeman's daughter at the moment-when a detective was murdered. Worst shot—prolonged death of the detective. Best sound shot— liquor gurgling out of a carafe.
