Dick (Canary). Dorcy................. Ge Pe a EE PERS Se Gr un co ae NE We AEG Pee Ce ee Geergl Pitts hos oo ee PE oe ES ee Re ao The screen’s most romantie couple, Ruby Keeler and Dick Powell, supported by an outstanding star like Pat. O’Brien, directed by Frank Borzage, Hollywood’s ace director; in an entrancing story of army life, with unprecedented dancing specialties, smashing song hits and the background of Hawaii and West Point — that is FLIRTATION WALK, the newest and most spectacular of Warner Bros. musicals, made with the full cooperation of the U. S. military authorities. Dick Dorey (played by Dick Powell) is a private in the U. S. Army stationed at Honolulu. General Fitts, (Henry O’Neill) brings his beautiful, but unconventional daughter, Kit, (Ruby Keeler) and his aide, Lieut. Biddle (John Eldredge) to review the troops. Dick is assigned to act as chauffeur for Kit, who, inspired by Honolulu moon-light, has the young soldier drive her to a native love festival instead of to a formal dance where she was to meet Biddle. The moon and the music take effect and Dick and Kit make love to each other. Lieut. Biddle threatens to have Dick cashiered, and the lad is about to desert, when Pat O’Brien, playing the part of the top sergeant, Scrapper, prevents it by begging Kit to intercede for him. Kit gets Biddle to drop the matter on her promise to drop Dick.

In Dick’s senior year at the Military School, Gen. Fitts is made superintendent, and brings his daughter with him. Kit confesses her love for Dick, who, still piqued by her treatment of him in Honolulu, will have nothing to do with her. She announces her engagement to Biddle. Dick and Kit have the leading roles in a musical comedy that parallels their affair in Hawaii and in the final kiss they discover they are still madly in love with each other. Dick climbs to the girl’s rooms after hours to beg her to marry him, and is again discovered by Lieut. Biddle. To bring charges would involve the girl, so Biddle tells Dick to resign from the service, which he does. Kit, in remorse, tells her fiance she loves only Dick. Biddle gets the Army Board to reject Dick’s resignation and like a good sport shakes hands and wishes his suc. cessful rival luck. Allie Wrubel and Mort Dixon have written the words and music for a number of songs sure to be smash hits of the season. The spectacular dances, engaging hundreds of girls and scores of native Hawaiians, were staged by Bobby Connolly, who has directed the musical numbers for Broadway’s greatest hits.
