The co-producer of “Sunset Boulevard” can be a wondrously indignant man and he has never been more so than in this first solo effort. The potential vulgarity of the mass of men, and the demonic evil in a reporter such as the one played by Kirk Douglas in ”Ace in the Hole" have seldom been ex posed to such masterly scorn as Wilder works up here. In this quality, the Palace attraction represents the screen at its best and, in this, it goes a long way toward outweighing the sometimes grotesquely exaggerated elements _ g . I_ VI WiiV »» V* « . “Ace In the Hole" is the story of a monstrously corrupt reporter and the mob that is ready to gulp the poison his typewriter gushes. Douglas in the reporter role stumbles upon a story that will remind every one of the famous Floyd Collins case, a Kentucky cave entrapment of some years ago. It is just the sort of sen sation he is looking for and for which he has tie skill to develop. He takes charge of rhe rescue with the idea of keeping the vic tim buried alive until the whole country is infected with a mor bid interest in the search. He bribes the Arizona sheriff with the promise of easy re-election. He plays cozy with the trapped man's dim-witted, hard-bitten wife. He diverts the rescue party from the direct route to the vic tim in favor of one that will give him time no matter how much it tortures his “ace in the hole’’ or increases the change, of the latter’s death. And, having taken all these preparatory steps, he writes Hour ly stories that attract the morbid like flies to his carnival. Once launched upon this tyranny over the crushed body of his man, and over the minds of the curious crowd, he could not stop if he wanted to. Not too strangely, neither can Producer-Director Wilder stop even though it must have oc curred to him that his own ex travagances were equal to those of his villainous reporter. * * * * "Ace in the Hole" is a dizzily exciting blend of the elements that go into maddog journalism. Its weakness is that it never pauses to realize that decent newspaper men—the ones ostensibly thwart ed every step of the way by Doug las—might be just as clever in their techniques as he is. The fact is that they do have a way of dealing with unmiti gated heels, even one played with such authority as Douglas who here excels the lowlife he imper sonated in "The Champion.” Wilder is hard put to conceal this truth in giving his man his head, but he is given a wonder ful assist by the dominant char acter in “Ace in the Hole.” Doug las’ reporter is a man not only without a scruple. He is alsc cursed with an inordinate pride in his power over the mob and ar enormous dexterity in exploiting it. He has spent a professional lifetime perfecting his technique for just such an opportunity as he is given and what he makes of it is potent beyond his owr awareness. Subordinate characters are al most as powerfully played, the sleazy young wife by Jan Sterling the decent editor by Potter Hall the trapped man by Richard Ben edict and the opportunist sherifl by Ray Teal. Whatever its distortions, "Ace in the Hole" makes of these screer figures no one is likely soon tc forget. _AMUSEMENTS.

Horatio Hornblower was a seaman capable of satisfying mod ern man’s desperate search for ad venture. He proved this first in C. S. Forester's best selling novel and there is every reason to as sume that the proof will be even jmore popular in the movie, “Capt Horatio Hornblower." It opened simultaneously at !three theaters here yesterday, the Warner, Metropolitan and Ambas sador the first time the Royal j Navy has ever come up with a hero of such dimensions. Warner Bros, in producing the film biography of Capt. Hornblow er found a fine figure of a man to play him in Gregory Peck. Like the Captain himself, Peck has his deserved following. He knows the strength that lies in shy, silent men and how they may use sinewy courage to fight wooden ships to a succession of victories which put England eternally in the debt of its sailors. lilCOC Ui l^UgUUiU a Will. with Napoleon in the early years of the 19th century are photo-: graphed not merely with the ex pensiveness they deserve but also in Technicolor which gives war a dramatic luster impossible in mere black and white. "Capt. Horatio' Hornblower” is therefore, one of those big pictures which are the current fashion and which, in spite of their cost, are the ones paying off on the investment in them. Chief of Peck's companions in this exciting memorial to Capt. Hornblower is Virginia Mayo. She I is clearly a beauty worthy of such a daring and decent man and al though the romantic passages are tire less dramatic ones in the film, | Miss Mayo keeps them from be coming monotonous. * * * * As in the novel, most of the ac jt.’on in Capt. Hornblower's career iis that concentrated aboard the* Lydia. This wras the small battle ship he took on that famous secret mission to the Pacific in 1807 and the craft he fought to two dra matic victories over Spain's dread nought, the Natividad. These two fierce encounters are i vividly reproduced in the Warner film directed by Raoul Walsh. Also reproduced, more tepidly as one might expect, is Hornblower’s en counter with Lady Barbara Wells ley. This was a long drawn out affair, including the episode of Hornblower’s expert nursing of his passenger through a fever at tack. Nevertheless, its very length may suggest that modern high speed ocean craft are inferior to sailing ships as assets to cruise courtship. * * * * Although its battle sequences DEMON ARTIST — Anthony Lang, who plays the title role in “Tony Draws a Horse,” a drawing, incidentally, that wrecks a family in the new comedy at the Playhouse. represent tempestuous action, the film follows Forester's story with considerable fidelity in its con templation of character. Capt. Hornblower was the most arresting speciman of Royal Navy manhood aboard the Lydia but there were many others, including Seaman Quist. Each of these comes in for a proper intensity of study. In addition to its stress upon the fighting skill and romantic appeal of Capt. Hornblower, the screen play pays considerably more at tention than most of.its kind to comedy. In the days of simpler; weapons such as wooden ships, men were inclined to fight more for the zest of it and their good humor was evident even in the pitch of battle. It is unlikely that even the most intense of Hornblower admirers: will find anything to complain of in Peck's portrait of the lion hearted captain, or of Miss Mayo’s impersonation of the fiery, lovely Lady Barbara. They are both ad mirable figures and so are such others of the Lydia's crew as Rob ert Beatty, James Kenney, James Robertson Justice and Alex Man go. The latter cuts a singularly amusing figure as the egomaniacal Don Julian, the Spanard to whom Hornblower gave the Natividad and from whom he had to shoot it away again. i i uia uamascans Really Clothed By the Associated Press HOLLYWOOD. Paul Henried believes Syrians in the year 634 A.D. must have been tardy for work every day. It takes him almost an hour to get into the costume he wears in “Thief of Damascus," a movie of seventh century intrigue in the fabled city. First he winds on a turban, and that usually takes several tries. Next comes a pair of bloomers. Then a burnoose, an ankle-length garment with 41 hooks that fasten down the front. The outer gar ment is a brocaded kaftan, also ankle-length, with 29 more but tons. Finally, he winds a tricky sash around his waist. “Makes a man feel like an arti choke,” he says.

Kirk Douglas has been picked ; as the bright particular star of the international film festival in Venice. "We’re arranging the schedule of ‘The Big Sky’ to make it possible.” Kirk said between 1 scenes of “The Big Trees” at Warners. 1 “I’ll fly over, make an appear ance before the showing of ‘Ace In The Hole,’ then plane back.” 1 The big romance with Irene Wrightsman is in the big deep;, freeze. The pretty brunette1 wearied of waiting. Frank Sinatra positively will not' leave Ava Gardner, which means', TV in New York is out. The:] Sinatra divorce is held up by the i property settlement, and that | can't be settled until Frankie knows how much money, if any,!] he has to divide. h * * * * Robert Merrill is so sure he’ll ’ be singing at the Met this winter . that he has declined to appear at the St. Louis Christmas pageant. "He doesn't want to risk another Hassle with Rudolph Bing,” says William Perlberg, producer of Robert’s first Hollywood picture, ‘Aaron Slick From Pumpkin Crick.' I hope Robert’s hunch is right. Gregory Peck and Greer Garson are the dream combination cook ing for "Interrupted Melody," the Metro movie based on the life of polio-stricken opera-singer Mar jorie Lawrence. “I would terribly like to have Mr. Pack play my husband, Dr. Thomas King.” the courageous songstress told MGM biggies before going to her Arkan-1 sas ranch. She'll be back in Sep-; tember to record the songs for ‘ Greer to mouth.
