THE WINTER, GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933

THE WINTER GARDEN. What a lot of trouble a tiny poodle may cause is brightly illustrated in the charming musical picture, "Yes, Mr. Brown," screened for the first time at the Winter Garden Theatre on Sat- urday. Nearly all the forms of light en- tertainment have been artfully intro- duced, and Jack Buchanan, claimed to be the most charming and popular of Britain's film stars, is the pivot char- acter. He appears as Nicholas Bau- mann, head of the Vienna branch of a world-wide business owned and con- ducted by an American, Mr. Brown, who is introduced, travelling to Vienna by rail. The day before Mr. Brown is expected to arrive, the employees of the big department store are drilled by the director to greet him with "Yes, Mr. Brown." However, while the re- hearsal is going on, Mr. Brown dashes into the establishment, and his ar- rival Is surrounded by very amusing incidents. He meets Mr. Baumann's lady secretary, Anne Weber (Elsie Randolph). The Vienna manager is very anxious to enter...

REGENT THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 28 August 1933

REGENT THEATRE. "Hell Below," a spectacular naval drama, full of action and excitement, holds first place on the Regent's bill of entertainment t>.ls week. The theme of the film is the conflict be- tween love and duty, in which duty finally triumphs. It gives a realistic picture of the daily life of a sub- marine crew and the terrible chances they must take in naval warfare. Robert Montgomery is finely cast in the role of a submarine officer, who has fallen in love with the daughter of his commander. She is married to a crippled air pilot, but that does not prevent her returning the love of the young lieutenant, who has been placed under arrest for disobeying the orders of his commander (Walter Huston),a stern disciplinarian, with a rigid code of honour. The two lovers plan togo away together, oblivious of the effect of their action upon the husband, who is hoping for the day when he will be able to walk aRain. Atlast, however, the lieutenant realises that he cannot escape from d...
