® Lead Story Lupino, Bogart Star in Thrilling ‘High Sierra’ One of the year’s most outstanding productions, “High Sierra,” co-starring Humphrey Bogart and Ida Lupino will be the next feature attraction at the Strand Theatre, starting Friday. Written by W. R. Burnett who authored “Little Caesar,” “High Sierra” was produced by Warner Bros., the same company which presented the earlier film. Roaul Walsh, the picture’s director, is noted for the deft balance between romance and hard, blunt “punch” that he has delivered in many hit pictures, since his initial success with “What Price Glory.” Another guarantee of “High Sierra” being top-drawer entertainment is the fact that Mark Hellinger acted as_ associate producer of the film. Headed by Bogart and Miss Lupino, the cast of “High Sierra” also includes such notable names as Alan Curtis, Henry Hull, Henry Travers, Barton MacLane, Arthur Kennedy (remember him as Cag*ney’s brother in “City For Conquest’’?) and Joan Leslie, 16-year-old making her film debut, and hailed by preview audiences as a sensational discovery. A small wirehaired terrier called “Pard” is also said to walk off with more than his share of the picture’s honors. “High Sierra” tells the story of Roy Earl, termed by the authors as “the last of the Dillinger gang.” It is the sensational tale of a man who is overtaken by his inexorable doom just as he finds happiness for the first time in his sordid life. When Roy Earl is released from prison on a pardon, he dreams of going to live on a farm. But first he must repay his gangster boss for winning him the pardon. This job takes him to California, and a mountain camp in the High Sierras, where he is to hide out until the time is ripe for him to pull the “‘caper” that will pay for his freedom. There is a desert resort at the foot of the mountains, and a hotel safe, laden with the jewels of wealthy patrons. It’s just the sort of job that Roy Earl is best at and all he has to do is lay low until he gets the o.k. from the hotel clerk, who is also “in” on the job. There’s a girl at the mountain camp, a girl to whom life has shown only the seamy side. And there’s a dog, a little mutt of uncertain ancestry. Both immediately attach themselves to Earl, and against his better judgment he takes them both along when he goes after the jewels. Although he makes a clean getaway, the clerk is caught, and squeals. It’s pretty easy for the police to get on the trail of a man who’s travelling with a girl and a dog. But before they catch him, Earl barricades himself in the rocky heights of High Sierra, thereby providing one of the most thrilling film climaxes of all time. Still HS82; Mat 202—30c TWO AGAINST FATE—Ida Lupino as the gun-moll with a heart, and Humphrey Bogart as a dreamer with a gun, in W. R. Burnett’s new story “High Sierra,” which goes into the Strand on Friday. Bogart is Bad Man Of ‘High Sierra’ Humphrey Bogart’s appearance in “High Sierra,” the picture coming to the Strand Friday, establishes a new precedent for a star’s presence in a film. Bogart appears in 207 scenes of the 209 in “High Sierra.” His dialogue covers portions of 117 pages of motion picture script. Considered professionally, Bogart’s role is the most extensive and continuous in talking film history. Ida Lupino, who is co-featured with Bogart, runs only a little behind his record in number of scenes and lines of dialogue. The film, directed by Roaul Walsh, was adapted to the screen from W. R. Burnett’s best-seller by Burnett in collaboration with John Huston. 6 Defies Death in Mountain Top Scene Some men go to Heaven when they die. Humphrey Bogart got as near Heaven as he could, while still keeping his feet on the ground, when he died for the final scene in Bogart and Ida _ Lupino’s “High Sierra,” which opens Friday at the Strand. Bogie’s last earthly stand was made in a cleft between huge granite boulders on the rugged slopes of Mount Whitney. Not far beneath the topmost pinnacle in the United States, Bogart, the sentimental bandit, shot it out with the cops who had surrounded him. There, in the cold, thin air, a state policeman’s bullet ended the exploits of one of Bogart’s most exciting screen roles and brought a finish to the picture. Ys .

(Straight announcement) “ “High Sierra’ is an excitement-loaded yarn if ever I knew one! On film it’s a worldbeater!” That's what Mark Hellinger, newspaperdom’s acknowledged No. 1 story-teller, has to say about the Strand Theatre‘s next attraction, “High Sierra,” which stars Humphrey Bogart and Ida Lupino. Reunited for the first time since “They Drive By Night,” Lupino and Bogart reach the top of their screen careers in this picture. Ida Lupino as the dime-a-dance dame with more nerve than ten guys, a woman with a hungry heart. Humphrey Bogart as the man trapped, trapped by the mountains he loved . .. and feared. Is this the end—or just the beginning—for “Mad Dog” Earle, killer, farmer, and sometimes, in his heart, poet? You'll find the answer at the Strand Theatre in this thrill-packed film, directed by Raoul Walsh, director of a hundred hits, and written by W. R. Burnett, famed author of “Little Caesar.” (News announcement) CALIFORNIA—"’Mad Dog” Earle, today met lead death fired by California State Police in a desolate setting of early morning in the High Sierra Mountains witnessed by his dog companion Pard and Marie Garson, dime-a-dance hostess who was his only human friend. Earle, object of a nation-wide manhunt, was wanted for murder during the Tropico Inn holdup which he engineered. The ironic touch to the entire incident was that with thousands of dollars from the holdup loot waiting for him in Los Angeles, the need of two dollars for gasoline money for his car lead Earle to attempt a small town store robbery. Although he got his money, Earle was recognized and from there the trail led to the High Sierras.
