® Opening Day LUPINO, BOGART IN HIGH SIERRA’ AT STRAND TODAY “High Sierra,” the film which opens today at the Strand Theatre, brings with it all the thrills, suspense and dramatic action which movie audiences hope for in their screen fare. With Humphrey Bogart as “the last of the Dillinger mob,” Ida Lupino as his sweetheart, and made under the direction of Raoul Walsh, whose most recent success was “They Drive By Night,” “High Sierra” was produced by Warner Bros., with Mark Hellinger as_ associate producer. Supported by a cast which includes Alan Curtis, Arthur Kennedy, Henry Hull, Henry Travers, Joan Leslie, Bogart and Still HS 80; Mat 106—15c .. . love was their downfall Miss Lupino are said to triumph in the two top roles. Bogart plays Roy Earl, a strange sort of criminal to whom crime is an unpleasant, but nevertheless necessary, business. It is a role somewhat reminiscent of the one he played so brilliantly in his first motion picture, ‘The Petrified Forest.’”’ Miss Lupino is seen as the girl who loves him so much that she eventually proves his downfall. Another member of the cast whose love helps to lead to his eventual undoing is a small, loyal and lovable wire-haired _ terrier, named “Pard.” Making her first film appearance in “High Sierra” is Joan Leslie, a lovely sixteen-year-old who figures prominently in a brief but important episode that helps to set up the human side of the character Bogart plays. ‘GLAMOR GIRL' ART OF PARD, LITTLE DOG IN 'HIGH SIERRA’ The little mongrel pup, "Pard," who plays an important part in the story of "High Sierra,’ so intrigued our glamor-photographer that he posed the pooch in a typically ‘glamor girl’ sitting.

Burnett, who wrote one of the best film roles ever given a dog for Warner Bros.’ “High Sierra,” owns a kennel of 37 dogs. “High Sierra” stars Ida Lupino and Humphrey Bogart.

Humphrey Bogart, who plays the suavely sentimental gunman in “High Sierra,” at the Strand, has made an extended study of the habits of gangsters, bank robbers and plain racketeers, for his film characterizations has made some interesting observations about the breed. First of them is that the old theory that all bad guys have “eyes as blue and hard as marbles” is a myth. “Baby Face” Nelson, “Pretty Boy” Floyd, and “Killer Crowley’? were blue eyed but such notables as “Legs” Diamond and Al Capone had brown orbs. Bogart says that the practice of many underworld characters of speaking out of the corner of their mouths is based on the fact that men who have served time in prison get in the habit of conversing that way to keep guards from seeing them talking. A third trait of the real “hard guy” is that when he’s up to business he literally keeps his chin in. Soldiers at attention do that too, but with the gangster the habit is protective.
