Hitchcock Still Is Eerie
VA V'' • But on a Lesser Scale ‘Shadow of a Doubt’ Reveals Master Operating on a Restricted Basis In Field of Charming Crime Bv JAY CARMODY. War has cut the scope of Alfred Hitchcock, the movie suspense specialist, who has marie a career of seeing how taut he could stretch the nerves of the people. He no longer has continents to play -with, or frontiers, mountain passes, and those long, speeding trains which used to add such terror and pace to his stories. Hitchcock has been curtailed, ns artist, not as man. but it is not as bad as you might think. He still has those aristocratic, clever, psy chopathic killers as the central fig ures of his pictures. With the one In "Shadow of a Doubt," which opened at Keith s yesterday, he does very well, indeed. Not on the old scale, mind you, as nothing is on the old scale, but well enough to prove that he still can come closer than any one else to making a Hitchock picture Hitchcock's latest melodrama is *o tight in locale that that quality alone contributes to its suspense. It is such a strange element to find in his work—a story set in a simple, average family home in a small California city—that you sit there waiting for the moment when it shall spill all over the map. Tire confinement becomes part of the eerieness which surrounds Teresa Wright, Joseph Cot ten and the others who participate in the latest of the murders which Hitchcock has made so gay, charming and wittty all these years. * * * * Three prominent creative minds went into the writing of “Shadow of a Doubt." They were those of Thornton Wilder. Sally Benson and Alma Reville (Mrs. Hitchcock(. The hero they concocted is a handsome, ; urbane, joking young man who has a spiritual misery which he allevi ates by hating rich widows. Why rich widows should annoy him so much is beyond both us and them, but when hi thinks of them sitting there at a fridge table, bored, be Typewriter Ribbon and l Carbon Paper E.

It is not necessary to understand iiis case to find it an exertmely in teresting one. Like his prede cessors in the Hitchcock gallery of heroes, he is a winning, highly gifted young man. You never see him actually engaged in his life’s work of doing something about the ! widows who get so violently on his nerves. On the contrary, he is charming, full of consideration for the children, warmth for his doting married sister, graciousness to the neighbors, and only now and then dark with the intimation of unclean hands. What horror you feel for the fel low in spite of yourself (and because of Hitchcock) is conveyed through Miss Wright. She plays the role of his niece, a worshipful niece, whose spiritual kinship rvith the bland young man enables her to penetrate the veneer and find the somewhat cockeyed violence w'hich rages be hind it. * * i * The roles may strike you as rather strange things for Miss Wright and the amiable Cotten to be playing. Perhaps they are. but the” enjoy them to that fullness which Eng land's most agile mystery actors once showed when they were working for Hitchcock. The local, or domestic, setting for “Shadow of a Doubt,” puts rather a restriction on the dialogue of the picture. Its people naturally can not have that old world-wiseness and wit which marked those of “The Lady Vanishes” and some other ef forts of the master. They are just small town Californians, remember, and while they have been given some droll things to say, they have not been in Biarritz, Nice. Cannes and tho.se other places where the talk was always brilliant however small. The limitation of locale has not kept Hitchcock from peopling his picture with young and old who are “characters” more definitely than you usually find them. Apart from the principals, there is a bookish girl child who is engagingly quaint, a couple of small town detective story fans who spend their time working on the perfect murder of each other, an arch widow, a stuffy banker and a few others who can hold your attention. These lesser ones are played agree ably by such performers as Henry Travers, Patricia Collinge and Mac Donald Carey, to mention but three of them. As w-e say. it is a curtailed Hitch cock, but still recognizably the one who tops the lot in artful melo drama. Uncle Sam, Walt Disney and the newsreel men contribute the minor items which complete the bill. Children’s Theater Plays Announced Titles of the two remaining plays sponsored by the Children’s Museum of Washington are announced as ’’Captive Maid of Old Carlisle” and "The Emperor’s New Clothes” to be presented on the mornings of March 27 and April 10. respectively.

Kay Francis* Stock Rises That Extensive Jaunt to the Battlefronts Apparently Has Opened Many Eyes By SHEILAH GRAHAM. HOLLYWOOD. Maria Montez has a new heart throb—Pierre Aumont. They make a good-looking, if slightly vocal, couple, with Maria doing most of the talking . . . Kay Francis back in town and getting a rush from the people who matter here. Her jaunt to London and Africa has raised her stock sky-high, and she can now' take her pick of several choice movies. But that's not the reason why Kay went abroad. Her motives were patriotic. All the same there are several fading film stars I know who could do worse than follow the example of Miss Francis . . . Freddie Bartholomew has denied romance rumors with Rita Quigley, but she was the only girl Freddie saw on his recent visit to town i caused by the latest of his lawsuits.) ... By the way, the loneliest woman in tow n is surely Aunt Clssie Bartholo mew who, until Freddie went into the Army, had lived under the same roof with him since he was 2 years old. * * * * I never knew the glamor boys had such a variety of ailments until they had to break down and tell the truth to the draft boards. Mickey Rooney's fluttery heart and high blood pressure is something I did not suspect before. And George Raft's asthma came as a surprise. • George is 47 and too old anyway.) Neither was I aware of the fact that wmnder boy Orson Welles had fallen arches, plus a brace for his back, necessary since he tumbled down a flight of stairs for his big scene in , “Citizen Kane.'1 They wanted to give him a stunt man for the more j hazardous moments, but Orson | yelled. “No,” and now he will have a weak back for the rest of kis J life. However, he soon reports to f Uncle Sam but for limited service only. Alan Ladd has a respiratory complaint, which is why he did not get further than Government shorts at the Hal Roach Studio. Charles Vidor tells me that he did not know he was divorced by Karen Morlev until he read about it in the newspapers, but he must have been expecting it. Charles has a year to wait before he can marry Evelyn Keyes, and almost anything can happen in a Hollywood year. In fact, if Dolores Del Rio had not had to wait a year for her divorce to be final, she would now be Mrs. Orson Welles. The romance cooled just before she was legally free to wed . . . Betty Grable's dressing room is crammed with flowers. “From George Raft?" asks an in quiring reporter. “No,” replies Betty, and then laughs. “I guess he's getting too used to me.” Betty is still getting up at 5:30 in the morning for her film job and danc ing with the boys at the canteen until 12 midnight. It must be won derful to have that sort of vitality. * * * * j George Sanders breaks down to l admit that his favorite actress is ; Ingrid Bergman, and when asked why, he replies. “Because she looks so respectable!” His favorite role, he continues, would be to play an invalid where he could be in bed all through the picture. He may write a story for himself with just such a part. He is now playing with his real life father in “Appointment in Berlin.” "Mother would be in ,t, j too,” he flips, “but there's no part for her.” He is pressed for details of his role—he is wearing an RAF uniform. “Heroics and ail that, you know,” replies George. “I disgrace the uniform, but everything is all right at the end. and I get the V. C. —after my death.” At the partic ular moment of our conversation, he is watching the posthumous I award being given to his father. Sanders, sr„ is nervous as a kitten for this, his first movie role. “Why AMUSEMENTS. is he doing it?” I ask George. "Oh, i it’s a gag, don’t you know?” He ! says, and as this is the longest con ! versation ever indulged in inside a studio by the junior Mr. Sanders, this reporter does not feel too badly when he now fades away into an armchair and closes his eyes. Carl Esmond is dead (for his pic ture, of course). And Brian Aherne has to sling him over his shoulder and carry him out. ’ But I'm a big man.” says the charming Mr. Es mond. ‘‘and Brian has been sick, so I try and help him—-until my direc tor yells, 'Hev, you’re supposed to be a corpse!’” (Released by the North American Newspaper Alliance, Inc.) Shuberts Did It A precedent in the history of the National Theater will be set. next week when "Priorities of 1942” plays j its third consecutive week. The record-shattering engagement will be accompanied by the replacement of Gloria Swanson by Carmen Amaya and her flamenc.an dancers, and by Barton and Mann, come dians. The latter team formerly appeared in a production of ‘'Hell' za poppin.” ‘Rembrandt’ Listed The second portion of the United Nations Film Festival sponsored by the USO and the Jewish Community Center will open Wednesday night with a program honoring the people of the Netherlands.

IHOMAS MITCHEll • rAY BAINTER Another Jaded Crystal Ball The Film, ‘Crystal Ball,’ at the Capitol Applies an Old Comedy-Romance Theme By J. W. STEPP. "The Crystal Ball,” not a large budget motion picture, will not be selected the "sleeper” of 1943. It should not be considered a best bet even for sleep-inducer of the year, although it has certain dictinct pos sibilities along that line. The Capi tol feature for this week at best offers Ray Milland. a pleasant-look ing fellow, and Paulette Goddard, who makes a nice pin-up girl in any military camp. As for the effect of the film's incidental—it is surely incidental—content; it is the same as that of a shiny bauble from the leftover counter of Woolworth's. The producers once again have subscribed to the formula that somehow synonvmi/.es comedy romance with silly. This formula runs: A couple of stars, sophistica tion in varying lesser degrees, and any kind of activity which might manage to draw giggles out of an audience. There may be bright lines, if the script writers are ca pable of them, and an attempt to establish humorous situations as they may pertain to the male female triangle; or a touch of slap stick then may be larded in for good measure, should the rest not come off so well even for the producers' tastes. The finished product is as indiscriminate as the formula sounds, primarily because no one seems to give a hang whether the ingredients take a definite shape or merely float around, so long as they, isolated or not, get their giggles, it is these scattered noises which keep mast of the theater patrons awake during "Crystal Ball.” This comedy-romance character istically Ls glossy. Its inhabitants are well-heeled people who live in well-appointed surroundings, such as a lawyer’s office and Park avenue hostelries. Their dialogue is a vogue approximation of S. N. Behrman. except tnat it is never clever, but bluntly cute and foolish. Incidents verge on the slapstick all the way through, up to and including the traditional waiter shoving his face into the traditional cake. Every one of upper billing in the cast wears fine clothes and looks well in them. Miss Goddard especially although she is supposed to be a penny arcade fortune teller's assistant, not a high station. Mugging, admittedly of a conversative sort, is rampant, too. —as if you need be told. Like crystal balls everywhere, only cliches emerge from the one at the Capitol. ♦ * * * Your old friend Sharkey, the seal who should have a college degree, has returned with his straight-man and fish-tosser to headline the stage show In addition to playing a tune on the bells, balancing things on his educated nose, etc., Shaikey has AMUSEMENTS.
