There Were Also the 10 Worst
Screenplays-Maybe More By Joy Carmody There's ft m«n around here, a happy-go-lucky fellow, who keeps ask ing: "You want me to pick the 10 worst pictures of the year, don’t you?” The answer to the question is yes, but the man is so Interested In the prospect of 'picking the 10 worst pictures that he never hears It. The result of that is that he never puts the names of his horrendous screenpiavs pope*, iawlCi keeps them pent up inside him. This is supposed to be bad for humans, this being pent up. but the 10-worst man goes on getting fuller in the face and body every year and look ing less and less neurotic. Besides, as between two men in a drama department, there is always a 100 per cent difference of opinion as to who really saw the 10 worst movies of any year. It may be the one thing they do disagree on, but it is always there between them, quiet but dangerous. * * * * Strangely enough, there is a para dox in this. It is based upon a mu tual respect for each other's judg ment, which is to say that when one of the reviewers says a pic ture is not worth seeing, the first to believe the report is the other re rlewer. Therefore, they do not see the same bad pictifres and lack a proper basis of comparison. For Instance, this other fellow, name of Harry MacArthur, missed a two million dollar piece of de lerium called “The Poxes of Har row.” He was concerned that day with a little old moth-eaten num ber that represented less than a mil lion dollars’ worth of insufferable artificiality. Any one knows that you can make a worse picture for two million dollars than for less than that, and even 20th Century-Fox would resent MacArthur’s contrary argument. And, still harping on the subject of money, where was he the weeks of “Forever Amber?” It says in The Evening Star of that day, Oct. 24, 1947, that he was out dallying with an innocent little stranger called “The Spirit of West Point.” True, he did not like it as a movie, but he admired the newsreel clips which showed Glenn Davis and Doc Blan chard in their greatest football feats. Amber never made a run of as much as one yard, which sort of robbed her of an equivalent excitement. Another super-colossal opus which would be a tragic absentee from his list would be David O. Selznick’s “Duel in the Sun.” Here was the trite lifted to the several millionth power (according to Selznick's cost accountants) and all the beautiful photography could not make anyone MINSTREL—Dennis Morgan, a singer who hasn’t been al lowed to do much singing in his films, plays Chauncey Olcott, the famed Irish en tertainer, in the Technicolor musical, “My Wild Irish Rose.’’ It is next on the Warner Theater's schedule. ' forget that the thing was essentially sleazy sensationalism. Who was it in the drama depart ment that possessed the nobility to face “The Two Mrs. Carrolls” and came away from it feeling that no bility was a vastly overrated quality in a man? Who still carries the psychic scars of Humphrey Bogart and Barbara Stanwyck making a shambles of this old shocker which Elizabeth Bergner had somehow re trieved from the oblivion it merited? Let no man answer that. * * * * There was another Thursday—and may its like never come again—when an expensive, hopeful sounding, well cast picture called “Desire Me” turned up on a local screen. It had Greer Garson, Robert Mitchum and Richard Hart at the head of the cast list, but when it came time for the director's credit to appear on the screen, all was blank. No director would take credit for "Desire Me”, which the producing studio was happy to discover suffered no worse fate than being a flop. No man’s list would be complete without “Desire Me.” And then, there was another one which almost surely was incompar ably the worst picture of the year, a distasteful stew called by the pretty name of "Christmas Eve.” There are humans who assume that any picture wnn oeorge nan is destined to be the worst picture of the year, but this one also had George Brent and a lot of other players who contrived not to look embarrassed by what they were up to. The 10 worst pictures list that failed to open its heart to "Desert Fury” would have to answer to a lot of people who sat through , the I spectatcle of Lizabeth Scott, John Hodiak and several others in one of those passionate recitals of way ward love which looked as if every one was kidding. It cost a lot of money to make a picture as ineffably dreary as “Desert Fury” and anyone who thinks it could be-done for less obviously did not see this one. Miss Scott participated in another monumental indiscretion which merits a niche of -dishonor on any list of screenplays deemed "worst”. That was "Dead Reckoning”, a melodrama that started in a morgue and backed up from there to end in a hospital. Also, by way of proving that the English can make as bad pictures as anyone else, there was "Wicked Lady” with James Mason and Mar garet Lockwood. It rounds out a list that might be bettered as the worst of the year, but let anyone try to beat it. WHAT MAKES YOUR NOSE TICKLE?

Sergeant_Graham Moffett John Camphell_John Lauri, Postmistress _Jean Cadel] By Horry MacArthur The British have a knack, toe seldom displayed by Hollywood, for making motion pictures about peo ple rather than about types It is demonstrated again in ‘‘I Know Where I’m Going,” a definite bulls eye by the Archers, which is the corporate way of identifying the English producing-writing-directing team of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger. You’ll find the film, with Wendy Hiller and Roger Llve sey starred, at the Hippodrome and pvprv miniifp nf If is n inv It is ft simple little yarn that Mr. Powell and Mr. Pressburger have spun in ‘‘I Know Where I’m Go ing.” It is merely boy-meets-girl and you certainly could call it an oft-told tale without finding your self in an argument. It is told this time, however, with a most human warmth and against a lively living background. Miss Hiller, an actress of great charm, plays the young woman who knows where she is going. It is to the isle of Koloran in the craggy Hebrides, where she is to marry a wealthy industrialist. She almost makes it, too. but for a providen tial gale which strands her on the isle of Mull, awaiting decent small boat weather. There she meets a young naval officer and, against a musical background of skirling bag pipes and Gaelic speech, learns some of the facts of life that have been overlooked by a headstrong girl. The ways of the people of Mull are as alien to the lass from Man chester, England, as they would be to a lass from Manchester, Ohio. The young officer, she discovers, is really the Laird of Koloran, who does not hold in any great respect the wealthy industrialist to whom he has rented the isle for three years so that he can get enough money to live on it for six. One of his friends is a retired army officer devoting his life to falconry, whose greatest triumph at the moment is an eagle which he has trapped and trained in that sport. Another is Catriona (played by Pamela Brown who la wonderful), who, without benefit of money, maintains a ram bling house that is a monument to hospitality and breeds fine, shaggy, gangling dogs. There are others, too, solid human beings, who share both the dignity of man and the knowledge that life I is enjoyed in the living and not in the amassing of wealth. Prom them all, the young lady from Man chester finds out where she really is going. She gets her first lesson early, when a group of the people of Mull tell the newly returned laird ; about his tenant. This comic char acter, they assure him, has had fish delivered to him, when the waters of Koloran are brimming with sal mon. What’s more, the benighted man has had a swimming pool built when there’s a whole ocean there to swim in. Aye, a daft one. The young lass finally comes ; around to this way of thinking, of course, but while she is doing it a picture full of rare charm is being unreeled before you. Not only Miss Hiller, Miss Brown and Mr. Live sey, but all of those of the support ing cast, perform in a manner that can only be described as excellent. Scenically, too, the film is fine, hav ing quite obviously been made in the Hebrides and not on a studio stage. If there is a flaw anywhere in “I Know Where I’m Going,” some one else will have to point it out. We Hirin’* coo i* The Literary Clan By tht Associated Press HOLLYWOOD.
