Crosby and Fitzgerald Repeat
In Another Roguish Charmer By Jay Carmody Paramount waited a respectable two years after "Going My Way” before pairing Bing Crosby and Barry Fitzgerald again. But it brings them together once more in ‘‘Welcome Stranger” which opened yesterday at the Earle and there is no denying that it is about time. ‘‘Welcome Stranger” is the comedy customers have been waiting for, an engaging fable whose charm is in nowise diminshed by the fact that it is ar virtual j cvjciit oi me original story. as doctors, which they are on this oc casion, Crosby and Fitzgerald are as winnirjg a pair of rogues, and even a bit rangier in scope, as when they wore the clerical robes of their first screenplay. As screen repeats go, “Welcome Stranger” is far more artful than most and, while it could have de pended fully upon the matchless blending of its heroes personalities, it offers considerably more. It should not escape the public that credit for this is due largely to Di rector Elliott Nugent. An agile man, Nugent, when it comes to keeping sentimental hokum from looking like itself. It is a gay and genial comedy he has directed and it is as certain to make moviegoers happy as it is destined to make Paramount rich, ‘ Going My Way,” to everyone’s great surprise, turned out to be one of the top money-makers of all time. The ^surprise will be missing when the “Welcome Stranger” returns are added. * * * * Maine, supposedly the most Amer ican spirited area left in America, is the scene of the latest odyssey of Crosby and Fitzgerald. In this set ting, Author Arthur Sheekman, keeps them quite sensibly in charac ter. Fitzgerald is Fallsbridge’s old doctor, a crochety, kindly martyr to the community’s health. Crosby is the vagabond medico who is sent .to relieve the old man when the latter concludes he should have a vacation after 35 years. These characters have been op posed in more tales than anyone ever would bother to count, but Crosby and Fitzgerald are the com plete masters of the dramatic by play through which they come to understanding, respect, and affec tion. On any script handed to them, even one less inspired than that of “Welcome Stranger,” they can be trusted to find the sharpest flavor of every incident and situation. Truth to tell, they are constantly adding their own as when Crosby steals such an obvious Fitzgerald line as “Did ye now?” and gets the merest flick of admiration from the latter. * * * * As the young doctor who takes the two-months’ vacation assign ment, the footloose minstrel Crosby comes as a great shock to the pro vincialism of Fallsbridge. Naturally, his impact is most terrifying upon old Dr. McRory who can’t believe that medicine has so far lost its mind as to accept a garishly dressed troubador such as this. Frankly, he does not believe that Crosby is a doctor; a distrust expressed in his instructions to the young man to call a Bensonville physician should anyone in the community become ill while he is away. “Welcome Stranger” goes out to Hollywood: Burt Lancaster May Get Lead In ‘All My Sons’ By Bob Thomas Burt Lancaster and Edmund O'Brien, two fair-haired boys at U-I are lined up in competition for the lead role in "All My Sons,” from the play that won the New York critics award last season. Both are vying for the role which Arthur Kennedy created on Broad way and it looks as though Burt is going to be the victor. Already set in the cast are Edward G. Robinson and Mady Christmas. It is interesting to note that Burt made his screen debut and Eddie his postwar return to films in "The Killers," but they never appeared in a scene together. * * * * Joe E. Brown learned from the State attorney's office in Chicago that a man who has been posing as his son for some time has been captured in Dallas. The imperson ator has reportedly been bilking women in several States and was lought widely by the FBI. Irene Dunne is one actress who worries about what the critics write flhnnl. hpr TV»rfnrmanrftR lost, two films have been from the stage hits, “Life With Father’ and “I Remember Mama,” and from now on she says “1 11 only do original stories for the screen.” She ex plained that it invites too much comparison to play a role already created by a stage actress. * * * * Henry Fonda’s next lines up as ■Rain Before Seven,” a psychological story which Casey Robinson will produce at Columbia. Hank is one guy who doesn’t mind working. Three or four of his pictures will be showing in the theaters this fall Eve Arden did a great job in “Biography” at the La Jolla Play house and it should help awaken HollyWbod anew to her fine comedy talents. The Playhouse is having a fine season, boasting casts which Broadway can’t afford . . . The Hollywood Bowl advertises simply “Coming August 23—Margaret Tru man, Soprano” . , .

This is does by depending mainly upon the warm humanity of its principal players, but they do get the help of Author Sheekman and Director Nugent in the form of dialogue that is perfectly fitted to requirements. The speech of Crosby and Fitzgerald is so right that its most sophisticated ad lib-like allu sions are never out of key. * * * * AX1C JJ1UI Ui TTC1VA/IIIC Ol/ltUlgCl is strictly homespun. It deals not only with the personal conflict be tween its main characters, but with such Fallsbridge phenomena as the new hospital which the old doctor almost does not get, a barn dance, a municipal sleigh-ride, the spirited rescue of the town’s talented drunk, an emergency appendectomy, and even the birth of a first baby. This is incident enough to keep the picture moving at a suitable pace, but there is also the running romance between Crosby and Joan Caulfield as the prettiest "teach” on the Fallsbridge faculty. Between the songs he sings to annoy the old doctor and the ones through which he needles the hesitant teacher, Crosby gets quite a varied album into “Welcome Stranger." A couple of these, “My Heart is a Hobo,” and "As Long as I’m Dreaming,” already are standouts. There is some superb miming in the lesser roles of the Earle’s new hit. Percy Kilbridge, for example, spins a Maine village taxi-driver who holds his own as a comedy figure in company as fast as that of the screen play’s stars. Another ex cellent portrait is that sketched by Prank Faylen as the health-haunted small town editor. Miss Caulfield, of course, is not merely her usual lovely self, but a better actress. “Welcome Stranger” is welcome indeed.

Aside from Mr. Tatum's moment the Columbia’s semi biographical tale is undistinguished Even a sound track which carries music in the early Dorsey brothers’ style and Jn the manner of the latter day groups of Jimmy and xvumtj vbiuiw v ot* t v/ *t, A more learned student of the lives of the Dorsey brothers could tell you, where we can only guess, how closely this standard fable parallels the actual events of their careers. One of our guesses is that their famous feud was not caused because both were Irish and be cause Tommy wanted to play “Never Say ‘Never’ ’’ faster than Jammy wanted to play it. It is, on the other hand, entirely plausible that the two became famous in their field because their father did not want them ot be coal miners ana maue uiem practice ruui nuiiio a day on trombone and saxaphone when they were young. Admirers of Jimmy and/or Tommy probably will be able to ignore the story, or at least to put up with it, just to get the music The score’s high point, even though a pair of young lovers inject their pallid conversation into it, is a jam session centered around the Tatum piano, imvolving both the Dorseys Charlie Barnet, Henry Busse and others. Also to be heard are “Ob ject of My Affections” (Dorsey brothers with Janet Blair singing > “Green Eyes” (J. D.), “Marie (T. t).) and a few other items. Paul Whiteman also turns up now and then, playing his version of jaza with an orchestra big enough foi Toscanini. ( TTie talents of Sara Allgood anc Arthur Shields also are employed bj the picture, but nothing like to the fullest extent. Tommy and Jimm; play themselves, incidentally, no' quite as well as Larry Parks might but this is an interesting develop ment in the musical cinema. I would be unfair to set “The Fabu lous Dorseys” down as the pictun in which a song contains the line “To me, you’re the core of a cora sky.”- But that line’s in it. —H. M.'

New Groucho Marx In Capitol’s Film Is Not So New • COPACABANA,” a United Artists Pict ure with Carmen Miranda and Groucho Marx, produced by Sam Coslow, directed by Alfred E. Green, screenplay by Laslo Vadnay, Alan Boretz and Howard Harris, from an original story by Vadnay. sonts by Coslow, Edward Ward, Bert and Ham Ruby. At the Capitol. Tbe Cast. Lionel Devereaux_ Groucho Marx Carmen Novarro_Carmen Miranda Steve Hunt_Steve Cochran Anne _ Gloria Jean Liggett _Ralph Sanford Himself_Andy Russell By Harry MacArthur “Copacabana,” the Capitol's new film, does have its dull moments, but you can’t really complain about a picture that has two Groucho Marxes and two Carmen Mirandas. The dull moments occur only when Mr. Marx is not about, leering at the lush dolls who inhabit the Holly wood version of Monte Proser's gilded establishment just off Fifth avenue in New York. You can see for miles, incidentally, in the Holly wood version, which is something you surely can’t do in Mr. Proser s Copacabana. Groucho’s role is that of an actor turned theatrical agent. It is the comic notion of the picture that he should sell two versions of Miss Mir anda to the Copacabana’s boss. As a Brazilian Import named Carmen Novarro, she appears in the floor show downstairs, and as a Parisian named Mile. Fifi, she sings in the cocktail lounge upstairs. This, nat urally, has her operating on a strict timetable ana introauces otner com plications, too. The complications reach their height when Agent Lionel Q. Dever eaux (Groucho) and Carmen (Car men) decide it is time to do away with Mile. Fifi. Groucho, who recently is reported to have said, anent a rumor that he was to make a picture with the Ritz Brothers, that he wouldn't even make a picture with the Marx Brothers, has modified only his moustache and his loping gait here. He hasn’t modified these too much. 1f “Copacabana” is part of any plan he has for “going straight,” he hasn't gone too far yet. He still is a wonderfully funny performer. He makes the silliest dialogue sound hilarous (Carmen: Why are you al ways chasing women? Groucho: When I catch one I’ll let you know.). He can bring down on his head more disaster than any comedian in the movies and, having brought it down, can face it with more aplomb. Admirers of the Marx Brothers, of course, are going to feel short changed by “Copacabana” and we are inclined to agree with them. It is an inane sort of thing, a Marx Brothers picture with only one Marx in Its favor. The sequence with two Grouchos, for example, is the sort of madly pointless affair you used trio’s pictures. Agent Groucho tells the Copa boss he has a great enter tainer to show him. There follows a song production number with the old Groucho, complete with large painted moustache and beautiful cowgirls. “Not bad,” says the club owner. “How much?” “You couldn’t afford him,” say Groucho, the agent. And that’s the end of that. It just works out that Andy Rus sell, for all the fact that he can sing a song, is not the foil for Groucho that Chico is. Nor is Miss Miranda, for all her spluttering volatility, as magnetic as Harpo. She is funrfy, though, and she can sing the day lights out of a Latin ditty. * * * * The Capitol’s stage show headliner is another volatile singer, the lus cious Russian, Luba Malina. Her way with a song is something, too. Others on the program are Jack E. Leonard, a large and funny* comic; Lathrop and Lee, skillful tap dancers, and the acrobatic Emerald Sisters. DOUBLE TROUBLE—Carmen Miranda finds herself cast in a dual role by her agent (Groucho Marx) in “Copaca bana,” being forced to play two entertainers in the same night club.

It is strictly hack comedy mystery, features a tale that clings to the faith that opening a succes sion of doors into darkened rooms will lead to something dramatic. Countless doors open in Starr’s story, nearly all of them upon an emptiness monotonously relieved now and then by George Brent and Joan Blondell. A movie studio provides the frame of “The Corpse.” Racketeers, it seems, have laid their hands upon weaklings on the payrolls, the idea being to use these to dispose of hot gems to rich, vulnerably vain screen darlings.
