Mr. Nathan Sets About Building
A Monument to Mr. Nathan
By JAY CARMODY.
Long after he has ceased to be around to goad them, playwrights
will have occasion to remember George Jean Nathan. Take it by and
large, the memory may be more pleasant than the actuality of the man,
for it is Mr. Nathan's intention to establish a monument to himself in
the form of an annual George Jean Nathan play prize.
The details remain to be worked out in Mr. Nathan’s ever-buzzine
Dram, DUt already the dean of'
critics has let it seep out that the
prize will amount to more than the
(1,000 which goes to the Pulitzer
award winner every year.
Mr. Nathan, who has participated
vehemently in the awards of the
New York Critics’ Circle award for
decades, ;vid often as a vituperative
minority, has not said just what
arrangements will be made for
selecting the “finest” play of the
years when there will be no Mr.
Nathan.
Persons familiar with his stridently
personal taste in such things are
waiting with bated breath for an
announcement on that score.
Already they realize that the
responsibility is one the judges may
not take lightly, light heartedly or
almost any other way if they can
dodge it. *
* * * *
Even as these words are written,
Warner Bros, are preparing to re
mind Washington and the rest of
the country that the end is not
yet insofar as making the National
Capital a great jest is concerned.

be set in motion, together with the

necessary actors and actresses, the
studio is making ready to convert
Joseph Fields’ “The Doughgirls”
into a screen drama. “The Dough
girls,” of course, is Fields' ribald
joke—albeit an amusing one—which
deals with the effect of congestion
here upon public affairs and private
morality.
Ann Sheridan. Jane Wyman and
Alexis Smith have been chosen by
Warners to illustrate Mr. Fields’
conception of what goes on here,
a conception that is more amusing
if no: half so dramatic as the real
thing revealed daily on the front
page.

After all that futile earlier chat
ter of how wonderful it would have
been to have had Shirley Temple
in the principal role of "Junior
Miss,” it may eventuate that she
will end up there.
Now that Mary Pickford has de
cided that there are too many re
strictions surrounding her proposed
deal for the property—a $350,000
property, the story goes—David O.
Selznick is reported excited over it
as a starring vehicle for Shirley,
now' under contract to him.
It would be the first time since
the beginning of her career as one
of the cinema’s first natural ac
tresses that she actually had a role
worthy of her talents.
Get in there and bid, Mr. S.

Howard Wentworth, who is direct
ing the Central Players’ production
of the play, “Nine Girls,” took his
nine girl performers td see the film
version at the Metropolitan last
night, an entirely natural thing for
him to do and for Warner's public
ity department to suggest. The nine
girls were Mary Starring. Terry
Clay, Muriel Turner, Florence
Campbell, Rhodelle Huron, Marie
Ray, Hester Jewell, Faiga Golds
man and Ann Goulding. The pic
ture’s effect upon Mr. Wentworth’s
nine girls has not yet been de
termined by the director.

The energetic Jack Foxe, man
ager of the Columbia Theater, who
was the first showman to reach his
goal of a bond-for-every-seat and
the first to reach a mark of two
bonds for every seat, yesterday
achieved the record of selling a
third bond all around the house.
By Tuesday’s deadline Mr. Foxe’
will try to make it four bonds per
seat.
If he does so. it might put him in
line for being someday the greatest
Secretary .of the Treasury since
Henry Morgenthau. Or, even if he
doesn’t.

Studios Could Afford a Vacation
By HAROLD HEFFERNAN.
HOLLYWOOD.
Film vaults are bulging with the
greatest backlog of finished pictures
in history, a check by the Hollywood
Reporter reveals. Some 77 features
are ready and waiting release. Based
on this figure, major studios could
close shop for three months and
still meet schedules. Paramount
leads the field with 20. Oldest and
perhaps most eagerly awaited is the
Warner Bros.’ celluloid version of
“Arsenic and Old Lace," which must
hold until the stage play has run
out of customers. That one was
filmed two years ago, with Cary
Grant starred.

If you ordered w-hat Joan Craw
ford did at the Mocambo the other
night the management would prob
ably suggest you get your coat and
hat and go some place else. Miss
Crawford sat down and ordered an
apple. She had just dropped in
with Husband Phil Terry for a dance
or two. They're a slick-looking
couple. ... Victor Moore is not doing
so badly for a gent fast approaching
70. On his birthday this week (he
was 68) MGM borrowed him from
Paramount for the starring role in
“Ziegfeld Follies.” This means he'll
be the top comic in the show, which
will be in technicolor and one of
the most extravagant productions
the Culver City lot has ever at
tempted.
Eddie Hvans, former Broadway
comic, is playing opposite Acquan
etta in Universal's "Jungle Woman,”
and the script provides that he be
crushed to death by her. Hyans just
received a medical discharge from
‘Tunisian Victory’
To Be Released
"Tunisian Victory,” the first joint
feature production of British and
American army film units, is now
complete and will soon be released
in the United States by the British
Information Services and the Office
of War Information, through
MGM. The film runs 75 minutes
and is a successor to last year's hit,
“Desert Victory.” The new picture
begins with the African landings
and ends with the German sur
render of Tunisia.
"Tunisian Victory'” reports the
joint action of British and Ameri
can troops through six months of
desperate fighting. Americans can
see here the baptism of fire which
their troops went through in the
grim battles of Hill 609 and Kas
serine Pass.
Produced jointly by the British
Army Film Unit, under Col. Hugh
Stewart, and the United States
Army Signal Corps, under Col.
Frank Capra, the picture cost the
lives of many cameramen. Four of
the British unit were killed and an
other four severely wounded. Two
were decorated for gallantry In
action.
War Information
For Next Month
Five war information films will be
distributed during March by the
War Activities Committee of the
motion picture industry. Of 10
minute running time, these are
films produced by the Industry in
co-operation with OWI, the titles
including “The Why of Wartime
Taxes,” “Prices Unlimited” and
“America’s Hidden Weapon.” “Film
Bulletins,” Nos. 12 and 13, will deal
with the conservation of tires and
waste paper, respectively.
Release dates range from March
9 to March 23.

Pym studios would like to erect a
monument or something in the
name of Judge Ben Harrison of the
United States District Court in Los
Angeles. In a plagiarism suit
brought recently in his court against
MGM studio for $50,000 for alleged
thefting of “Come Live With Me,”
the judge not only dismissed the
case but ordered the plaintiff to pay
$1,000 toward the fees of the de
fendant.
Importance of this decision is not
to be taken lightly. Studios are
forced to maintain high-salaried
legal staffs to fight off plagiarism
charges by persons who have every
thing to win and nothing to lose.
There are always attorneys ready
to gamble with a client on the
chance of whipping a big film com
pany in court.
Such a ruling by the United
States District Court is bound to
act as a deterrent to those bringing
suit without justification. It costs
the industry hundreds of thousands
in attorney fees annually to defend
nuisance suits. No wonder they
return your scenario marked “un
opened" and shy from any but
legitimate agents when a story is
offered.

who is down around Miami trying
to get background shots for “Thirty
Seconds Over Tokyo,” are nothing
the Florida resort center can tack
up on the wall. Le Roy complains
bitterly about rain and winds hold
ing his big company indoors. The
camera crew looked forward to
photographing rare cloud forma
tions, usually available in the
Florida skies this time of year. So
far they’ve seen nothing of them.

By J. W. STEPP.
Columbia Pictures falls in with
"The Night of January 16” idea for
committing murder to entertain the
public. In “Nine Girls,” presently
at the Metropolitan, the studio has
taken precisely that number of rep
resentatives of the distaff side and
caused the young things to mill
around while murder is being done.
When all that has to be said is said,
and the nocturnal doings done, it
must be admitted that “Nine Girls”
is not the best of its genre. At
the same time, we would be the first
to reassure armchair criminologists
that the film offers the most at
tractive bunch of murder suspects
we have ever seen.
It is the kind of case the average
male would like to crack.
The scene is a well-appointed
charm school snuggled in the moist
California backwoods. The isola
tion, the rain and the almost con
tinuous state of darkness make a
nice tapestry for crime whose blem
ishes are pretty well obscured by
the filigree of gals, gals, gals. From
the point at which Anita Louise is
killed off (with a rock very early
in the film), the air is rent with
girlish shrieks, usually bright quips
and slapstick, as contributed by
William Demarest, the Dumb De
tective. Also, lights being cut off,
people getting slugged and a fur
nace room sequence that removes
most of the suspense with the film
about a third of the way to go. Not
that that matters very much. The
Met’s balcony usher had the solu
tion worked out long before the de
tectives did yesterday.
But the girls make for reasonably
good fun, behaving as pertly as they
do. You probably will like Jeff
Donnell, “Butch” and Evelyn Keyes,
“Mary,” especially. Ann Harding
turns in a good performance, too, as
the patient, motherly school su
pervisor.
