Barbara Stanwyck, Aged 100,
Still a Lady of Fire 'Great Man's Lady,' at the Earle, Gives Her Bright Acting Role; Dennis Day Popular on Stage Bt jay carmody. There is something dramatic in Barbara Stanwyck's tottering en trance as a 100-year old woman in "The Great Man's Lady" at the Earle this week. But once Miss Stanwyck has made her appearance and launched upon her reminiscences, drama goes strangely out of the story and it settles down into a semi-listlese affair which is saved from dullness by Miss Stanwyck's energetic and versatile performance. As the great man s iaay, u is om.v mu mm, .->uc should dominate the picture but hardly to the degree of putting Joel M c C r e a, the great man him self, in almost total eclipse. That is what happens, an error in the writing which seems to have left the usually admirable Mc Crea in a mood merely to walk through the mo tions of being a great, man. "Great Man's Lady."' well off c*moey. the track of comedy which Miss Stanwyck has been following lately, is another tale of the inspiration which a woman's love can be to a man. That always has been a good utory and even in this instance it frequently creates the impression that it really is better than it looks. That it actually is not better seems to be the fault in its method of presentation. Apparently carried away by the idea of aging Miss Stan wyck to 100—which worked out so beautifully in the case of Helen Hayes in "Victoria Regina" and Ethel Barrymore in "White Oaks" —Director William Wellman decided upon the flash-back trick in telling his story. On this occasion, in spite of Miss Stanwycks attractiveness as a fiery grand dame with two ciphers in her age, the technique looks hackneyed. It might have GREAT MAN'S LADY.'· Paramount ! production starrlna Barbara Stanwyck and Joel McCrea. produced and directed by William Wellman. acreeplay by William L. River, based upon a short atory by Vina Delmar. At the Earle. The Cast. Hannah Sempler Barbara Stanwyck Ethan Hoyt Joel McCrea Steely Edwards Brian Donlevy Oirl biographer.

Davidson Persia Mary Treen Citv editor Lucien Littlefield Pogey Bnowflake (Fred Toones) nothing compared to her discovery that the unshakable strength and lofty vision which inspired her first love for Ethan Hoyt (McCrea) were largely illusions. These things were in him, but so were suspicion, jealousy, a fondness for drink, and a tendency to curl up when the going got too tough. At the end. however, as in the beginning she was the faithful one whose heart could remember only the noble things she saw in him and which she forced him to show to the world. "Great Man s Lady." as you can see, provides Miss Stanwyck with a goodly part and it is her handling of it that saves the picture from ordinariness. McCrea's role is a very ambigious affair, the ambi guity of which seemed much too j much for him to overcome. The consequence is that he plays it. with ! an understandable puzzlement. Not. much more substantial Is the part assigned to Brian Donlevy, who wanders through the picture as a smart gambler who abandons his confidence game to play a moody, stricken lover in the forgotten corner of the story's triangle. * * + * Dennis Day, the young man who pretends to be^naive and who sings so effectively on Jack Benny's radio been better merely to snow uei m one brief fadeout scene looking back at her love from the objectivity of 100 years if Mr. Wellman could not overcome t he ^temptation entirely. "Great Man's Lady," which Para mount treated to a generous budget, examines the effects of sacrificial love upon the career of a fiery young man who opened up the Western frontier, lived to represent It a» its liberal Senator, and died to become the top figure in a fine piece of equine statuary. Miss Stan wyck, a girl of passion, was the source of the love, a girl who left a luxurious Philadelphia home in the late 40s—her own teens—to help the young man bring to actuality his vision of a vast America. It was quite an ordeal she let herself in for, a thing of famine, floods, and all other hardships of frontier life so alien to her gentle upbringing. These, however, were show, makes ft fine he&dliner for the I stage program which Harry Anger has fashioned for this week. By way of a recording Benny intro duces Day to the theater audience, after which the now wandering minstrel of the program sings sev eral popular songs. His association ; with the old master has taught Day ; some comedy tricks of his own which fit very nicely into his popular act. Supporting acts include the1 Gaudesmith brothers and their ir responsible dogs, Ames and Arno, knockabout comedians and the Roxyettes in two routines which: they handle with their established ; deftness. You could almost say his toric deftness by now. TURKeyfgpiNNtn 50c ladadlBf m» ·τ talec. tw· vc*« ItHn. ■>)·<. ItHtrl, relit, k«r»rtfc.

Glamour and a Miniature Mother-Daughter Model Team Most Popular in Business By Don Whitehead, Wide World. WHITE PLAINS. Ν. Y. Case-hardened commuters who pour through New York's Grand Central Station are frequently startled these days by the sight of beauteous Kersti Vickers and her daughter. Penny Ann. For Kersti and Penny Ann are something special—and when you put them side by side, they're just twice as special, a couple of platinum-haired glamour girls having a lot of fun. Penny is a miniature of her mother. Both have the same blond hair fliiu UiUC VJI-O, c* J J VA nil· VUbl/V ΙΟΙ heightened by their matching cos tumes. That's why they are becom ing the most popular mother-daugh ter modeling team in the business. Penny, whose real name is Pen elope, doesn't mind the stares of the curious and ignores them with all the airy indifference of a 4-year old career woman who looks 3 and acts twice her age. As for Kersti, it's a big thrill to sandwich in a modeling career with her household duties even though her architect husband, Burnett Vickers, does have to eat out occa sionally while she and Penny are in town on business. We called at the attractive Vickers residence the other day and Penny burst out of the door chattering like a magpie. She wore a red dress and there were two tiny red bows in her hair. A brown airdale cocked a wary eye at the little blond fireball and stayed well out of range. It Wax An Accident. "That's Raggy," said Penny. "He causes the mostest trouble. He's always running away to grandmoth er's." She dived for Raggy. but he apparently was well versed in avoid ing these surprise maneuvers, and beat a quick retreat. Presently Mrs. Vickers greeted us. Wearing a red dress like Penny's and with two red bows in her hair. We drank ginger ale on a cool porch shaded by trees and rambler roses. "It vu more or less an accident. before the camera or model at a fashion show. They are finding themselves more and more in demand and draw the I regular model's fee of $5 an hour each. Penny is buying War stamps with most of her savings. And it might be well to say here that both mother and daughter are natural platinum blonds. Kersti came to this country with her par ent·* in 1922, when she was 11. from Ruckstad, Sweden. Her father, Gustav Persson. is a cabinetmaker. "I had never thought of modeling as a profession— "Mommy," interrupted Penny, ! "can I get a doll when we go to the city?" "But you've got too many dolls already," her mother said. "Well, then, let's just get a pocket book," Penny said. "I do need a new pocketbook. A red one." The glamour girls decided it would be a red pocketbook. Settings Will Be Vast For Hemingway's 'For Whom Bell Tolls' HOLLYWOOD. One hundred and twenty miles of the most rugged mountain terrain in the United States, on the west side of Sonora. Pass in the Hieh that Penny and I became models. A friend suggested about a year and a half ago that we should enter a fashion show at Arnold Constable's, in New York, modeling mother and daughter outfits." They were so successful in this show that soon others began asking for them, and Kersti decided it was time she put the mother-daughter team on a business basis. She and Penny became Conover models, the agency arranging their appoint ments. At this point in the conversation, Penny came out of the house. "I burned my finger," she said, although her mother showed no alarm. "You see, I was cooking a chicken. I want you to stay for dinner." Upstairs in her bedroom-play room, Penny went to a toy stove and opened the oven door. Inside was the chicken dinner—a duck carved from soap. Switch Works Wonders. In convenient reach, and ae a visual warning that even 4-year-old glamour girls sometimes need a re minder of parental authority, was a slender switch tucked behind a picture. | "I didn't think I'd ever have to use a switch for discipline," said ■ Kersti, "but I've found it works wonders at times." She does her own housework with occasional help on the heavier I cleaning—and adopts the glamour ι role only when she and Penny go Sierras, will serve as the most ex tensive location set ever selected for a motion picture, when a τ-aramount troupe headed by Sam Wood and Gary Cooper leaves Hollywood June 22, to film the Ernest Hemingway classic, "For Whom the Bell Tolls." His location schedule roughly mapped out. Wood returned to the studio today with Assistant Director Lonnie d'Orsa, Production Designer William Cameron Menzies, Produc tion Manager Sidney Street, Art Di rector Haldane Douglas and Techni color Cameraman Ray Rennahan, after four days of scouting the terri tory, part of which is still buried under 8 feet of snow. This snow will be utilized for the first loca tion scenes. Three vacation resort camps, Buckman's, Nelson's and Kurzy's, and a road camp on the main high way, have been taken over for the use of the film company, which is expected to spend from six to eight weeks in the mountains, at eleva tions varying from 6,000 to 9,500 feet. The camps represent all the accommodations available up to the top of the Pass, which is not yet open to traffic. To many of the lo cation sites, actors and equipment will have to be packed in by horse back. "It will be a hard campaign re quiring plenty of sturdy backs and stout legs," Wood declared, "but as a replica of the original Sierra de Guadarrama, Sonora Pass cannot be beaten."

Sudden Swiss Royalties Give Author a Suspicion Hilton Thinks Germans Are Smuggling His Books Despite Nazi Dislike; Mr. Meek May Steal a Show By HAROLD HEFFERNAN. Sights and sounds: Fed up witk propaganda and other "approved" matter that now makes up their entire reading diet, the German people have taken to smuggling into the country books "of their own choice—books that do not preach the Nazi ideology. That's the conviction of Author James Hilton, on the basis of royalties wnicn ne nas recenwy rcceiveu-i from Switzerland, and which he I says are "fantastically out of pro portion to what the territory would i support." Hilton has been at Paramount Studio, working for Cecil B. De Mille on a screen treatment of the story j of Lieut. Comdr. Corydon Wassell. "My Swiss publishers are in Fri bourg. on the German border," Hil ton said. "The extraordinary high royalty figures that have come to me on "Goodbye. Mr. Chips.' 'Lost Horizon' and 'Random Harvest' from there can only be accounted for by the explanation that some one in Switzerland is buying my books and smuggling them into an other country. From some other things I have heard, I believe that country is Germany itself." All three books Hilton mentions are banned in Germany, presumably because their philosophy is not con sidered conducive to the Nazi way of life. "The story of Dr. Wassell" will be even less welcome, since a large percentage of its gross goes to United States Navy relief. * * * * Arnold Stang, under various char acter names, is just a voice to an estimated 40,000.000 radio listeners, but soon hell be seen by perhaps as many screen fans. And he's a sight they'll not aoon forget—a quaint, big-nosed, big-eyed and practically chinless youth in horn rimmed glasses: a pint-sized Ster ling Halloway with dark hair. When the 19-year-old Stang was almost unknown in radio circles two years ago he heard that a show called "Meet Mr. Meek"' was being cast. Having no illusions about the vocal and visual impression he cre ated on folks, he applied for the title role. The instant the producers saw him and heard his voice they cast him In the show—but not as Mr. Meek. They wrote in a part for him in which he was meeker than Meek. That gives a rough idea of the latest bidder for a place in Holly wood's clubby little group of eccen trics. He's from Brooklyn and on leave from seven radio shows to make his debut in "Sweet or Hot." an RKO musical co-starring Victor Mature and Lucille Ball. There's en excellent chance, according to Director Tim Whelan, that Stang may steal the show. * * * * Surpassing the record established by "Sergeant York" <26i, Warners' latest life-story film. "The Adven tures of Mark Twain" will trot out 29 real-life characters. In addition to Samuel Clemens iMark Twain) and members of his own and his wife's families, the flesh-and-blood folks to be imper sonated include such literary greats as Bret Harte. Ralph Waldo Emer son, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, John Greenleaf Whittier and Wil liam Dean Howells, the distin guished critic. Ulysses S. Grant, as the victorious soldier and later as the ill and im poverished author of his memoirs, will be seen in the picture. So also will Horace Bixby. the river pilot who taught Sam Clemens to navi gate the Mississippi: Steve Gillis, partner of Twain's mining ventures, and Joe Goodman, the author's first newspaper editor. * * * * Nothing so mysterious after all about Monty Woolley not wanting to shave off that beard. There had been some talk about him doing so for "The Light of Heart," which will be his next picture—but it turned out to be just so much talk. I've worn this beard for 13 years and It's become my trademark.: that's all," Woolley talked back to the boys at 20th Century-Fox. "The play "The Man Who Came to Din ner" made it tamous and the picture helped, too. "My actor friends used to tell me it was sure death to my film career to try to keep the beard. But I notice, that—let me knock wood— I've kept pretty busy and many of my whisper critics aren't anywhere around. "I'm always ready to cut it off for a picture—providing the studio will continue my salary afterward until it grows out again." The studio has shied away from that proposition. Woolley has been earning in the neighborhood of $4,000 a week. It takes at least 16 weeks to cultivate a growth such as he displays. * * * * Screen stars with huge homes and plenty of land are getting them off their hands as quickly as they can—but in too many cases that isn't very fast. There's nobody nowadays eager to grab them up. Claudette Colbert managed to dis pme of her big Holmby Hills place. The Temple* are putting their house on the market. So is Joan Crawford. Preston Foster had a deal all set for his show place which tops the ridge between Beverly Hills and the San Fernando Valley, but the night the papers were to be signed, the "buyer" ducked out of town. miHiid hf U>« North American Newspaper Alliance, me.)
