There will be some who think
Producer-Director Billy Wilder's
dramatic license should be revoked
for the excesses of “Ace in the
Hole,” new Palace screen feature,
Nevertheless this would be an
excessive punishment for a movie
maker who can achieve such dra
matic wallop in a screenplay that
swings from its heels at the mor
bidity of mobs and the depravity
of purely sensational journalism.
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.

Capt. 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.

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.

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.
