Palace Flavors Its Fourth
iWith a Mexican "Fiesta”
By Joy Cormody
It was ‘ Fiesta” day at the Palace Theater yesterday and, con
sidering it was the Fourth of July outside, it probably was not
inappropriate.
The picture, another M-G-M musical, is quite holiday in spirit
and makes no pretense of being epochal. Its flavor is Mexican, its
colors are Techoi, its music is spiritedly Latin and its people are
handsome in that envialy swarthy ways of actors pretending to be
from the still deeper South. _
It "Fiesta” were to lay any claims*
|to distinction, its case would rest
upon its presentation of more bull
jflghting than any other picture this
■season and its success in keeping
Esther Williams out of a bathing
(suit in all sequences but one.
\ The producing studio’s idea, like
ithat of any fiesta day committee,;
was simply that every one should4
ihave a good time filling his ears
;with lively music and his eyes with j
beautiful people and scenery. This
-it realizes better than most such
committees on entertainment.
j * * * *
Mexico is more than the setting
] (actual) of "Fiesta.” It also is thei
natal place of Miss Williams’ asso
ciate star of the screenplay, Ricardo
:Montalban. The mahogany-hued
;actor is quite at home before the
{'cameras in the part of a young man
('who prefers music to bull fighting.
He is even more at home in the
. dances of his native land which
he performs with vigor and grace
! as the partner of Cyd Charisse. Miss
tlharisse is another newcomer to
9 cinema prominence. Her welcome
I is assured not merely by her dance '
artistry but probably even more so
by the circumstance that she is
quite at home in "Fiesta’s” glam
• orous company. •
The neophyte pair are quite be
; coming to the music of Johnny j
: Green and Aaron Copeland. The
' 1 latter is responsible for the picture’s
major musical number. "El Solon
A j Mexico," which reflects a sound
9 ( neighborly feeling on (he composer's:
part for the Mexicans.
How the Mexicans will like his
Idea of an anthem for them is for
the Mexicans to decide.
* * * *
The story told by "Fiesta” is
almost as old and threatens to last
longer than the Aztec civilization.
I It is a tale of Mexican family life,
1 whose principal members are a twin
brother and sister played by Mon
talban and Miss Williams. Their
father is a retired bull fighter,
which apparently leaves a man
richer than being a retired movie
star does in this country. Their
hacienda, at any rate, is bigger than;
, the Pan American Building and
every one living there is reasonably
happy, as why shouldn't they be?
The single fly in the ointment of
the celebrated old buli baiter is the
twists in the personalities of his
two children. Bull fighters, like steel
tycoons, great surgeons and the late
George Apley dream of sons who
will succeed them and be equally
brilliant in the same groove.
Not Antonio Morales’ son, how-1
ever. Almost from babyhood, he
hears distant music which he must
get down on paper. He learns bull
fighting, but his heart is so little
in it that he chucks his first great
public bout to follow the will-o’-the
wisp that captured Sibelius, Shosta-!
Mvitch, etc.
Just as you have been thinking all
along, however, the daughter turns
out to be the best bull-fighter since
her old man. As such, naturally,
Miss Williams has no opportunity
to don bathing suits. Still, those
matador suits with their jewels and
embroideries become her well ■
■ enough.
* * * *
When it is not being musical in
one form or another, "Fiesta” is a
sort of grand tour of the bull rings
of Mexico. Whether the sport is
actually as tame as shown on the
Palace screen, let the Mexicans dis
pute. As performed in one arqna

ifter another, between Miss Wil
iams and some spirited blaclc bulls,
t looks quite like a minuet. The
matador leads and the bull responds
with the effortless ease of one o!
Arthur Murray's prize pupils.
If this is the top speed of the
sport, it is harmless enough to be a
between-halves act at a George
Preston Marshall football fiesta.

While it was sparing of top-flight
names as compared with most of
its musicals, M-G-M assembles a
capable subordinate group for

Studio Won t Let
Signe Play Bits
ly tht Associated Press
HOLLYWOOD.
Swedish Actress Signe Hasso can't
understand why her studio won't Jet
her play bit parts.
Some of her critics can’t under
stand it either, but that’s neither
here nor there. The point is that
Signe wants to play some of the
smaller roles, and actually insists
they are more interesting than the
starring parts.
In virtually every script sent to
Signe for her study of the leading
role she has found one or more
character parts she’d like to play.
“That’s a bit,” she is told. “We
want you for the star’s role.”
“But the star’s role doesn't fit me,”
Signe insists. "This bit does. I can
do a better job in that role than I
could as a star.”
Swedes are stubborn, but so are
Hollywood producers. So far the
producers have won.
“If an actress is not a character
actress,” says Signe, “she isn’t an
actress at all.” So why shouldn’t
she play the character parts as well
as the parts without character?
Hollywood’s answer is that this is
a matter of economics. A star's
salary is too high to justify putting
her in a secondary role.

Hedy’s Thoughts .
Dwell Mostly
On Vacation
By Sheiloh Graham
I called Hedy Lamarr for her “last
word” anent John Loder’s statement
i that she charged him for board and
lodging when hev wasn't working,
i And here is what Hedy said: "I don’t j
want to indulge in a mud-slinging'
contest. But its quite different from
the truth.” "Well, are you going to
divorce him?” I asked. “Who W'ould
want to stay married to some one
who says things like that about
you?" was the lady's reply.
Putting her words into action,
Hedy filed her suit against John
on Thursday, charging that living
with him caused her much “mental
suffering."
Humphrey Bogart has more than
a “last word” for the British maga
| zine writer who did a piece about
what he called "Hollywood freaks.”
And Bogey's bride, Lauren Bacall,
was included! "I will punch thqt
guy on the nose when I see him,”
says Bogey—adding, as a cautious
afterthought, “if he isn't too big!”
Linda Darnell cabled me a “last
word" to deny the printed story that
she was having a nervous breakdown
in Europe. “It was only a cold.”
Linda gets back to the United States
some time in August.
* * * *
Rex Harrison will have a sad “last
word” if his picture, “Escape," is
: called off in England because of a
union technicality about not em
ploying Americans without the
Americans employing the same
number of Britishers. “Under Eng
8-—
lish union law,” says Rex, “Director
Joe Mankiewicz and Producer Wil
liam Perlberg are classified as ‘tech
nicians.’ And they can’t accept
them in the country on a working
basis. It's too bad because I wanted
to make a picture in England again
and I wanted to spend six months
in England. This way. I’ll go for a
vacation only and return here in
October to make ‘Lady in Ermine’
for Ernst Lubitsch.” Rex would very
much like to have some one like
Rita Hayworth or Gene Tierney as
his lady. I doubt whether he can
get Rita. Columbia' wouldn’t let
her go.
Clark Gable is not angeling Vir
ginia Grey in the “Parlor Players”
in the valley — according to Ross
Hunter, the boy who is paying the
bills to put on the series of plays.
‘ Clark.” says Ross, “has nothing to
do with the parlor players outside
of the fact that Virginia is one of
our leading ladies.” Ross tells me
that the third play on the list is
"Another Language,” in which he
will co-star with Constance Moore.
* * * *
Ella Raines is upset over the re
cent item stating that she and hus
band, Maj. Robin Olds, would leave
for a vacation in Honolulu when she
finishes "The Senator Was Indis
creet.” “He can’t go away just like
that,” says Ella, “he’s in the Army!
And when items like that are print
ed it makes it so much harder for
him to get a furlough.”
Frank Sinatra has a burning "last
word” for the Los Angeles sports
promoters who are pooh-poohing—
and worse—his attempts to put on
local sporting events. "Los Angeles,”
says Frank, "is the fourth biggest
city in the United States. There's
room here for more and bigger and
better sports events.” Frankie says
that nothing will stop the building
of his huge Hollywood Square Gar
den. And he hopes to lure some of
the biggest sports figures in the
country to Los Angeles.
* * * *
Little Jean Porter, now playing a
role with Shirley Temple, has a
"last word” about the difficulties of
getting going as an actress in Holly
wood. "I was at Metro for four and
a half years, and I thought I was
building up to a big chance when
they gave me the girl’s lead in a
Corporal Hargrove picture with
Robert Walker. So what happens?
They never gave me another pic
ture—only loan-outs to other stu
dios. And always when I try for
something good. I’m told, ‘you’re not
a big enough name fot big parts.’
How are you going to be a big name
if you don’t get big parts?”
Peter Lind Hayes passes on this
"last word” for Hollywood producers
—anent his wife Mary Healy. “She
wants to work, and I want her to
work. And I'd like her to work in
Hollywood, but the offers aren’t
forthcoming. So Mary is talking
with the Theater Guild about star
ring for them in ‘Allegro’ on Broad
way." After that, Peter, Hollywood
will discover her all over again. It
never fails.
