IT''S THE OLD ARMY GAME
starring W. C. Fields and Louise Brooks
W. C. Fields' fiset starring comedy is distinctly disappointing. The comedian, who gave such a mellow performance in "Sally of the Sawdust," is lost here, despite the fact taht three or four comedy scenes from various Follies are utilized. Funny behind the footlights, they do not get over inn this film. There is a lack of building up for comedy and the camear work buries many of he points. Louise Brooks stands out as a comedy foil.
