^Voice of the Turtle’ Brings
Merry Message of Love By Joy Carmody 4“ It was enormously charming of John van Druten to have written ‘The Voice of the Turtle.” The actual number of theater goers it has charmed is not available, but by any yardstick it is enormous. And bffore the comedy of love on a week-end Army pass ends its run at the National Theater, four weeks hence. Washington will have succumbed just as completely as New York, Chicago, Boston, etc. It was as a prophet that Solomon declared that "the voice of the turtle shall be heard in the land,” a sort of foreknowledge of playwright van Druten that should make Solomon a special’ pet of this decade. With four com panies playing the drama, there is in truth no sign that “The Voice of the Turtle” ever will stop being heard in the land. That's as it should be. Before the appearance of the com pany which includes Harvey Ste phens, Louisa Horton and Peggy French here last night, the National Capital had but one glimpse of Van Druten’s play. That was the single “command performance” of the President's Birthday celebration in January, 1944. The wait since then for the drama's return has been im patient. At last, it is fully rewarded. * * * * ’ From Solomon to Van Druten was a long time, but a lot of the former’s wisdom clearly was hand ed to the latter. By making love the theme of his play, he safe guarded it against that obsolescence which overtakes so much drama that has even a slightly topical flavor. The situation and much of the dialogue of “The Voice of the Turtle” have got around as fast and as far as a spicy bit of Suburban gossip, but the comedy has by no means lost its freshness. It sounds quite first-hand as Ste phens and the Misses Horton and French tell it. The volume of laughter is as great, and the pitch WEDDING Announcement! and Invitation! 24-Hour Service STAN LET ADAMS PRINTING CO. 1221 New Tork Ava.

O’Donnell O'DONNELLS SEA-GRILL 1207-9 E St. N.W. 1221 E St. "THE VOICE cr THE TURTLE,” a comedy in three acts by John Van Druten. with Harvey Stephens, Louisa Horton and Peggy French, produced by Alfred de Liagre. Jr.; staged by Mr Van Druten. with setting by Stewart Chaney. At the National. The Cast. Sally Middleton Louisa Horton Olive Lashbrooke Peggy French Bill Page _ Harvey Stephens apparently as high, as when fate first flung Van Druten’s characters together. Al -o, they are still the same nice people, and if the tempo of their week end is breath-taking, it is simply because time went that fast on a soldier’s pass. Mr. van Druten never labors that point as he never labors ANY point in “The Voice of the Turtle,” which is as neat a trick of keeping a story deli cate as any playwright ever prac ticed. If any one has not heard the plot of the three-season Broadway hit, it sums up tersely: Sergt. Bill Page (Stephens; comes to New York on a week end pass. He has a date with Olive Lashbrooke, a broad minded (the saying goes; actress. At the last minute, Olive turns him down for a more lively Navy officer, and Bill is left on the hands, and in the apartment, of Sally Middle ton. Sally and Bill both are lone ly, but he actually is the worse off because he has no place to stay. At least, he has not until Sally re members she has a day-bed right, there in the living room. That settles that, and, before the week end is over, it settles lots of other j things. Just how no one everj could be so clever as Van Druten in the telling. Or match his ex cellent taste. ^ T T It takes a great deal of artful dialogue to keep the voice of Solo- j mons turtle properly subdued in Sally’s apartment that week end. Certainly there never is any unbe coming frenzy in the manner in which it dawns upon Bill that Sally is a wonderfully attractive girl, and upon her that he is irresistible, too. They, have a great many amusing things to tell each other, and some touching discoveries to make about character. And, then, .as a final safeguard against any one getting the wrong idea, the whole thing is given the appearance of sheer domesticity. There are those analytic-minded ones who insist that the re^l genius of Van Druten in ‘‘The Voice of the Turtle” is that apartment in which he has set up Sally Middleton. It has everything to give the perfect, housekeeping flavor. There is a kitchen sink with running water, a coffee pot that produces hot coffee.1 a refrigerator from which Sally and Bill take ice cubes, mind you, a liv ing room with that day bed, and then Sally's bedroom. Nothing ever looked more home like and that the lonely sergeant and the out-of-work young actress should make themselves completely at home—well, what else could they have done? y Van Druten could conceive of nothing else and if he had been able to, audiences never would have for given him. In fact, there would have been no “Voice of the Turtle” and even Solo mon might have resented being let1 down. Quite properly, too. * * * * Like its predecessors, the company at the National was directed by the playwright. Obviously it has re sponded perfectly to his teachings. Miss Horton s Sally is the half-child, half-woman who would have to be bewitching to the semiworldly ser geant portrayed by Stephens. On his part, he would be quite as at- i tractive to her. Neither could be more understandable, although more sympathetic, no doubt, than Miss French as the opportunist Olive. A wonderfully funny girl, Olive, in the most charming romantic comedy in years.

Gary Cooper is now a very sick boy and is back in the hospital, which means a continued shutdown on his “Cloak and Dagger,” which has only five more days of shooting to go.
