Love Turns to Violence
In Met’s Melodrama
By Jay Carmody
Some of the cinema's most gifted humans pool their talents in "A
Womans Vengeance,” but the result is only a moderately interesting
melodrama.
Th« who wreaks her vengeance is the still-waters-run-deep
type. She is hardly the sort to make the blood run hot and cold even
when so great a charmer as Charles Boyer is marked as her special
victim. As played by Jessica Tandy, a superb actress, she is a plain
nuumii wxiuae resentment as Deing
by-passed In love Is more sur
prising to her than to audiences at
the Metropolitan.
"A Woman's Vengeance" may very
well have been made with the idea
that it would achieve more prestige
than popularity.
Its author is the brilliant Aldous
Huxley, a writer whose medita
tions on the follies and strange vio
lences of the human species have
enjoyed a vogue more intense than
widespread. In this adaptation of
his long short story, “The Gioconda
Smile,” It is a cool, detached look
he takes at the human heart. It
is a style of observation that must
seem strange to moviegoers who
have been brought up on passion as
an unbridled thing.
Boyer's role In "A Woman's
Vengeance” Is in the amorous
groove that he has dominated for
many years. It has this difference,
however, that his conquests here
while reaching to the number of
three are destined to failure. His
charm works only up to a certain
point, after which he would have
been much better off if woman had
never been created.
The principal figure in the wryly
humorous, quietly suspenseful yarn
is the woman played by Miss Tandy.
Yet it is the dramatic weakness of
the film that she exists on the
fringe, or somewhat in the back
ground, of the romantic quadrangle.
Boyer’s man is an opportunist i
Frenchman. As the story opens, he
Is the bored husband of a pretty,
petulant invalid whose jealousy is
as irksome as it is justified. His
attempts to be polite to her are
half-hearted and meet the rebuffs!
which they almost deserve.
The husband’s escapes from his
dreary home life are the conven- j
tional ones, an 18-year-old girl who

The number of women in his life

Instead of abating his turmoil, how

VICTIM — Of "A Woman's
Vengeance" is Charles Boyer,
in the picture of that name,
now at the Metropolitan.
able to disguise the fact that it is
pretty intellectual stuff.
He is never able to disguise the
fact that the husband probably is
i not guilty of the crime although he
may very well hang for it.
The chance of his escape from the
latter fate lies in the ability of the
family <toctor, an urbane philosophic
sort pla^d by Sir Cedric Hardwicke,
to force the older of the other
women to admit the crime.
The methods of such a man em
barked upon such a task are not the
kind that throb with excitement.
His procedure is to talk the woman
out of her secret. This is popularly
supposed to be an easy thing, but
not when the woman happens to
have been coined in the imagina
tion of Author.Huxley. This one, as
played by Miss Tandy, is an ex
tremely adroit fencer. It takes a lot
of conversation and finally an all
night card game to break her down.
Neither in its nature is very ex
citing.
In Its quiet way, "A Woman's
Vengeance” is an expertly acted
picture. Huxley’s script went to far
more pains than most In the crea
tion of well-rounded human types.
The competent cast accepts the
challenge of this sort of thing with
an obvious, and admirable, relish.
Boyer, for example, finds extenuat
ing circumstances for the promiscu
ity of his charming Frenchman and
Miss Tandy's timidly poisonous vil
lainess is far more substantial than
most screen figures. Sir Cedric’s
doctor is a man to remember, Ann
Blyth’s innocent girl dupe is amply
illustrated, and the acidulous nurse
created by Mildred Natwick is
sharply drawn.
Interesting as they are. they never
make anything especially interest
ing out of ‘‘A Woman's Vengeance.”

Miss Yvonne De Carlo is quite a
phenomenon. She is not Holly
wood's worst actress, as either Mon
ogram or Republic will be happy to
prove to you with its next Skater’s
waltz. She is not, as a matter of
fact, an actress at all. Her voice
and diction would never drive Sir
Laurence Olivier, say, into a frenzy
of jealousy. Her facial expression
almost never changes, no matter
what dire circumstances are clat
tering about her. She impersonates
seductive sirens with the happy in
nocence of a little girl dressed up
in old finery she has found in a
trunk in the attic.
Miss De Carlo is not any tearing
beauty, either, you will find if you
stop to think about it, though she
is no ugly duckling, by far. Nor
is her personality one of those elec
tric ones that rivets your attention
witlj its excitement. Yet, the fact
remains that Miss De Carlo does
do something for Technicolor, and

vice versa. We do not intend to re
sign from her fan club Just because
she cannot act.
The newest vehicle in which Miss
De Carlo is permitted to display the
particular cinematic talent that is i
hers is a Technicolor affair called
“Black Bart,” at the Capitol, in
which she plays Lola Montez to
Dan Duryea's Black Bart.
George Sherman directed “Black
Bart,” obviously with his tongue
in his cheek at the time. By not
taking itself, or anything else, too
seriously the picture has become a
modestly amusing tale of cops and
robbers in the old west.
A man would have to have his
tongue in his cheek, of course, to
translate into the terms of the
screen's self censorship the story of
Charles E. Boles, one of the most
eminently successful men of his
profession, sticking up stage coaches.
The original highwayman, unless we
are thinking of some one else, was
so unfailingly successful at knock
ing off Wells-Fargo stages that the
company, in self defense, finally
saved itself by buying him off with
a generous pension, on which he
lived to a happy old age. He
doesn’t get away with anything like
that in the picture, but he is a
genial and carefree robber right
up to the point where the script
proves to him what life never could,
tnat crime does not pay.
There is not much in the screen
play of “Black Bart" that could not
have been supplied by a sopho
more student of the western film.
It does move, though, with suffi
cient speed that you shouldn't be
bored and its light approach is
pleasant to encounter.
Mr. Duryea, incidentally, is much
better cast as a happy highwayman
than as a guy who pushes women
around. Miss Montez and/or Miss
De Carlo are not types to be pushed 1
around, anyhow. Of the support
ing cast. Percy Kilbride and Jeffrey
Lynn add the most to the agreeable
mood of “Black Bart." And you
know by now' what western scenery
looks like in Technicolor.

They've got a new switch on the

In "Mickey,” Irene Hervey is the
bather. The camera, however, will
depict her from the bathtub angle,
remaining under water and portray
ing the action as it might look to
a fish.
A glass porthole was installed in
the bottom of the tub. However,
the water will have enough bubbles
on the surface to keep the censors
happy.

Orson Welles as producer, direc
tor and star of "The Lady From
Shanghai,” at the Warner, is in one
of those moods in which he feels
like Jove, or one of the other major
gods.
He hurls restraint to the winds
and when he is through with it, his
poor little story is reduced to a
dramatic pulp. The spectator is
left with the odd feeling that all
this might be the act of a great
sardonic clown, a man bent upon
making a fine ridiculous burlesque
of the whole movie business.
Taken in this spirit, one might
enjoy “Lady From Shanghai,” but
certainly not if the thing really is
being played straight. On that
level, everything is fantastically ex
aggerated and the molehill remains
just another molehill. This is not
what one expects of the redoubt
able Welles.
“The Lady From Shanghai," In
which beautiful Rita Hayworth plays
the director's co-star, is based upon
a novel by Sherwood King. Ap

'something to the effect that evil
people destroy each other. This is
not a new truth, to be sure, but cer
tainly it has never been stated so
thunderously.
Miss Hayworth is one of the many
evil humans in the script in which,
come to think of it. Orson is the
only representative of goodness and
virtue.
His role is that of a poetic, black
Irish giant. Big as he is, he is on
the side of the world's “little people.”
He is a sailor to all outward appear
ances but actually he is a writer at
heart and is merely collecting ma
terial for future novels. Even' he,
as weaker-men, is not invulnerable
to Miss Hayworth’s beauty, how
ever.
Because he is not capable of re
sisting her, he finds himself lured
aboard a private yacht which she
inhabits with her debauched hus
band and their set of rich debau-!
chees. His notion is that he can
at least save her which would not
be a bad idea even if his motive
were considerably lower than it is.
His program does not work, but in
the process of failing it oilers audi
ences some of the most dramatic
photography the screen has achieved
this season. This is the major merit
