Clock Flips Back 150 Years
And the Play Is Gay Again
By Jay Carmody
They are tampering with time over in Alexandria this week and
next and the effect is quite dramatic. There is nothing small-scale
about it, such as setting all clocks ahead an hour one Sunday and then
Betting them back another Sunday four or five months later. That's
for little time jugglers. The ones in Alexandria deal in centuries, at
least one and three-quarters.
This revolutionary turn of the clocks lands the interested spectator
tui fllr 4m flntrx a/ PaIamIaI 111 n n timt • _____
In America, the particular theater
which George Washington attended,
at Gadsby’s Tavern. Under condi
tions as nearly exact as reproduction
permits, the Little Theater of Alex
andria is presenting “Miss in her
Teens or A Medley of Lovers.’’
A modem's judgment can only be
that while the plays Col. Washing
ton saw must have been painful, the
conditions under which they were
seen were gay and rewarding. Every
body who was anybody, and some
who were not, gathered at Gadsby’s
foj an affair that was properly the
talk of the countryside until the
next play come along, months, or
perhaps a year, later.
* * * *
Alexandria’s history--minded thes
pians make it arrestingly clear that
the theater was theatrical in G.
Washington’s day, that the play was
at least the thing that brought the
community together, and that the
audience was as much part of the
show as the traveling actors. First
nights were also last nights; but
they were merry affairs instead of
indignation meetings of people
dourly demanding $4.80 cents worth
of entertainment for their $4.80.
At Gadsby’s, incredibly enough,
friendliness is the keynote. This is
a shocking thing, in a pleasant way,
of course, and the spectator finds
himself looking for an explanation.
The soundest one seems to be the
absence of electric lights. Gadsby’s
depended upon candlelight, soft and
subdued, softening and subduing.
For a minute it gives one an eerie
feeling that Edison made a mon
strous mistake, at le£st as far as
his invention applies to the theater.
The ritual of getting to Gadsby’s
ballroom, scene of the play, is won
derfully soothing as compared to
the terrifying lobby scrimmage of
today. It is as full of decorum as
a prewar presentation at Bucking
ham Palace.
This welcoming routine begins at
the tavern door where a couple of
pages (slightly shivering ones last
night) are waiting with their
candles in storm lanterns. The
pages take the guest, a fine word
which makes you wonder whatever
happened to it, to the hostesses.
The hostesses in their Colonial garb
lead one to a sort of registrar, also
Colonial in costume. After the
guest has thus been checked in and
is now known by his name, he is
led to the host, who greets him and
introduces him to a serving maid
with instructions to the latter to
escort the visitor to the ballroom.
At the door of the ballroom, the
guest and his credentials are turned
over to the major domo. The latter
pounds three times with his mace
on the floor and introduces the
newcomer to the audience by name.
By this time, the guest has ?
heady feeling that at last he knows
how it was with Alice in Wonder
land and that he never wants to go
back to the world of the Shuberts.
* * * *
The play still is nowhere in sight,
but being back in Colonial America
Is about as much excitement as the
1947 Gadsbyite can stand. While
r————— i
he sits there waiting for “Miss in
Her Teens, or a Medley of Lovers,”
he is, divested of his last taint of
modernity by a trio sitting in a
balcony on the south wall of the
ballroom. The trio, a flutist and
two violins, is as far removed from
the contemporary orchestra and its
popular tune thUnderings, as Gene
Krupa from Toscanini. Its music
is a shy aside which is not allowed
to blur the major domo’s introduc
tions of the incoming guests. Its
selections are soft and folksy and
fitting.
The next impressive event,
strangely enough, is not the play,
but the first act intermission. The
premise of intermissions in Colonial
theater days was that guests did not
come all that distance just to see a
comedy, or something equally silly.
There were breaks of one-half-hour
duration during which Host Gadsby
served punch and coffee and play
goers who probably had not met in
months had a good gossip about the
political situation, the crops, the
families and their neighbors.
* * * *
"Miss in Her Teens, or a Medley of
Lovers,” on which the curtain rises
at 7:50 p.m. (remember that), will
run through September 30 at Gads
by’s. It is an afterpiece, properly
brief, by David Garrick, an actor
who used to write plays for himself,
a notoriously bad habit of stars in
his day.
It is as well done by the Alexan
dria players as Garrick, or you,
have any right to expect.
The play, this once at least, is
not the thing. The show, however,
is fine.
Slave to Fashion
By the Associated Press
HOLLYWOOD.
Republic Studio swears this is
true:
In strict obedience to the latest
fashion decree, pinup girl Adele
Mara is dutifully letting out the
hems in all 35 of her bathing suits—
they will now be one-inch longer
than they were.
Hollywood:
. Rita Hayworth
Will Be Paying
High Taxes
By Sheilah Graham
The Merle Oberon rumors of
trouble with her husband, Lucien
Ballard, persist, in spite of all stories
1 to the contrary. I hope they are
| wrong because Merle and Lucien al
ways seemed so much in love.
Judy Garland is having sleepless
nights again. But she has prom
ised her Metro bosses to report for
work next week in “Easter Parade.”
This time they will do all the dances
at the .beginning of the picture
before Judy gets exhausted by the
long shooting schedule.
Jennifer Jones and David Selz
nick had another quarrel last week,
but i they must have made it up.
They were together again last eve
ning.
Rita Hayworth’s new contract at
Columbia is something. In addi
tion to $6,500 a week, 52 weeks of
the year for a straight seven years,
Rita and her Beckworth productions
receive 50 per cent of the net pro
fits from all her movies from now
on. In the old days Rita would have
been rich—today she can’t get rich
with the high income taxes.
Hazel Brooks is taking her appen
dix trouble to New York for the
opening of “Body and Soul.” She’ll
be lucky to make it—without having
to go to a hospital for an operation.
Katnarine Hepburn withdrew as
the_star of "B. F.’s Daughter” be
cause of political cracks against the
new deal in the story. Now the
cracks have been deleted—to make
the shooting schedule shorter. But
Katie, of course, is still out, with
Barbara Stanwyck very much in.
♦ * * *
Esther Williams is taking only
short hemline dresses when she goes
to Paris next month to represent
America against French fashions.
Maybe Esther can accomplish with
her beautiful legs, what all the
squawks of American women have
so far failed to do—raise the hem
line.
Larry Parks just laughs every
time someone at Columbia suggests
he star in “Prince of Stallions” and
he laughs even louder at the story
that he has agreed to do a sequel
to “The Jolson Story.” It’s just
wishful thinking on Jolson’s part—
B ALLE R iNA — Margaret t
O’Brien takes up the ballet ]
in "The Unfinished Dance,” ^
which will be the Capitol f
Theater’s next attraction 1
starting Thursday. It’s a ,
musical, in Technicolor. S
he naturally wants to repeat the
$3,000,000 he is credited with having
made on the movie. As far as I
know, Producer Sidney Skolsky has
no intention of doing a sequel any
way.
Joyce Reynolds seems to be hav
ing a romance with the son of Zazu
Pitts, Tom Gallery. They are dating
everywhere.
Xavier Cugat and Lorraine Allen
will honeymoon for one week in
Honolulu after their marriage
October 5. “Later we take a trip to
South America,” Cugie tells me, and
adds that Lorralng's Spanish is
now almost as good as his.
Tyrone Power and Lana Turner
are in the middle of a tussle be
tween Metro and 20th Century Pox.
Both studios want to make a movie
co-starring the attractive lovers.
It will be interesting to see who
wins.
* * * *
Van Johnson’s latest movie, “The
Romande of Rosy Ridge,” is dying
[at the box office. That’s too bad
because this, in my opinion, is
Van’s best performance to date. His
studio is very worried about him
because of the new straight seven
year contract they gave him re
cently.
Jane Withers could open a store
with all the beautiful presents she
received for her wedding last Sat
urday to William Moss. Good luck.
Janie.
Hedy Lamarr is wanted by Cecil
B. De Mille to play Delilah in his
‘‘Samson and Delilah" production,
r bet she would play it if C. B.
offered Mark Stevens the part of
Samson.
Vincent Price, Boss Tweed of
Deanna’s movie, has just had a
brush with censors over the “Currier
and Ives” song he has to warble in
the movie. The lyrics, as done on
the New York Stage, are too naughty
for Hollywood, and they'll be
changed.

Lady, start laughing at yourself!
It’s your woman’s right to know before hand that
"hen you see Charles Chaplin’s sensational mo
tion picture, “Monsieur Verdoux,” you see your
self—and how funny you can get. N
Women without a sense of humor needn’t apply.
h “Monsieur Verdoux” Charles Chaplin has used
his own, hrfmitablo brand of humor to perpetuate
the best Joke on women since The Serpent per
suaded Eve that an apple was good for the
complexion.
Every feminine foible and failing is there. In
“Monsieur Verdoux” Chaplin puts on the screen

As a modern French Bluebeard, Verdoux loves and
liquidates the ladies. The ladies bring it on them
selves. They’re susceptible, suspicious, sour, sac
charine, simple and snobbish. Worse than that,
they’re crazy about the* fellow.
The theme is startling. The love story is strange.
