JAMES DICKIE Eugene O'Neill has undoubtedly touched the high point of his career to this time in the writing of "Anna Christie," recently opened at the Vanderbilt Theatre. It is realism and realism that includes the under world, and yet it completely escapes, the dreary sordidness of so many plays that strive for that realism.

And he has admitted further that there ARE possibilities in life for anyone regardless of the depths they touch.. This is something that many of the Broadway "realists" refuse to concede.. The acting of Pauline Lord as "Anna Christie" and George Mar ion, as her father, the barge captain, is perfect.. That sounds like gush, t know. But perfect is exactly what it is.. The production is an achievement.. Sunset beams can come from the east perfectly well if one is ingen ious; and New York apartment dwell ers have to be ingenious in order to get any sunshine at all.. One of them has solved the problem in a way that is being copied by all of his neighborhood.. Like the magic of our childhood days, it is done with mirrors..
