The Passing Show
The Talk's Bright in 'Jane'
But the Play Grows Dull
By Joy Carmody
(Drama Editor of Th« Star)
NEW YORK.
You would think a matinee audience would be the one with
which to see “Jane,’’ the inspired Somerset Maugham story which
has been enlarged and remodeled as a comedy lor Broadway by
S. N. Behrman.
Matinee audiences, unlike any other kind it seems, are almost
emiaisniy eager to De pieasea. eo,
frankly, was this roving critic
with regard to "Jane.” It always
has been a favorite—this tale of
a middle-aged frump who took
London society by storm—and he
also lived for years with the no
tion that it would make a delight
ful comedy.
Well, it did not work out that
way. The matinee audience
seemed charmed by Maugham and
Behrman, and by Edna Best, Basil
Rathbone and the. other players.
However, not even his old en
thusiasm for Jane’s piquant per
sonality evoked any echo for the
retouching job produced by the
Theater Guild at the Coronet on
West Forty-ninth street.
jane turns out to De pretty
much a thin and wavering little
comedy which not even the most
nobly intentioned acting can in
fuse with the sharp wit on which
the Maugham original impaled so
many society types he dislikes.
True, many of Jane's shrewd and
shudderingly honest comments on
London’s aristocrats and their
manners are amusing. Neverthe
less, even these suffer from an
apparent recent excess of Shaw
and Wilde. These two leave even
a playwright of Behrman’s clever
ness little to sound like save a
talented parrot.
Had the latter written a struc
turally better play and one that
might have been more invitingly
directed by Cyril Ritchard, this
judgment might sound like sheer
churlishness. Behrman's new
setting for “Jane” is nothing like
so congenial as the original, how
ever. Some unhappy consequences
will have to go with that.
* * *
The heroine of “Jane” is the
same lovable, provincial mouse—
with the tongue of a tigress—
Maugham created. To sustain a
full length play, however, it has
been necessary to give her more
things to be up to. Hence, in ad
dition to leveling London’s top
playfellows with her merciless
honesty, she has taken on the ad
ditional tasks here of rescuing
two pairs of lovers and redeeming
s middle-aged roue from the
health hazards of philandering.
There is something funny about,
a concern for the physical well
being of roues on the part of a ,
widow of equal age but Behrman (
made little more of it than of the ,
more direct, cliche-ridden Cupid ,
role Jane plays. ,
Like the heroine’s, Behrman’s,
greatest gift is for dialogue. The .
combination appears too inviting .
for any hope of action in “Jane.” ,
Director Ritchard, another won
derful hand at talk, works out a
lightning series of movements to ,
bring the characters on an off ,
itage, and to get them from one
chair to the next, but all this j
amounts to no more than a rest- ,
lessness on his part. It was not j
long before this spectator was,
caught up In the same emotion. ^
* * * * ,
It is a sort of fashion this year |
that the acting shall be better1]
than the playwriting and "Jane” ]
to an almost flagrant specimen of
the style. |!
Miss Best, as a dowdy widow of ,
Liverpool whose bloodlines and \
money entitle her to acceptance ,
In London, is a captivating Jane ,
despite the odds. She amuses a (
handsome young architect into j
marrying her, settles down in the ,
home of her sophisticated sister- j
ln-law, and proceeds to become ,
everyone’s favorite playmate ex- ,
eept the sister-in-law’s.
They are held spellbound, Basil 1
Rathbone as a distinguished di- ,
vorced author who once was head i
of the house; Howard St. John as
a rough-cut publishing tycoon,
Philip Friend who had the in
spiration to marry Jane, and Wil- ,
liam Whitman as a young poet at.
loose ends until he can marry
Jane’s pretty niece.
Miss Best puts a prew sneeu
on so many of the endless con- ,
versations that take place in the
chaste London drawing room. Men
frho like to talk about themselves
more than any other sex, are
Jane’s brightest companions. She ,
makes out very well with St.
John, for all his surface resent
ment. on the theme of how ridicu
lous and come right down to it,
how physically profligate, for mid
dle-aged men to be courting young
actresses.
She is good also with Friend as
her young husband, a handsome,
success-bound architect who will
not listen to her when she sug
gests their mutual enchantment
will not last.
It is not at all to the dramatic
advantage of “Jane” that as the
play’s co-star. Rathbone is rather
an incidental character in Miss
Best’s orbit. He is a realist who
is delighted by her flair for ruth
less honesty of judgment and
truth telling, but he lies outside
the range of it. He is present as a
sort of commentator on the pro
ceedings and the people involved;
In them and he gave at least one
spectator the feeling that he was
not enjoying HIMSELF either.
* * * *
Much more effective use Is made
In "Jane" of Irene Brown in the
role of Jane’s sister-in-law. Miss
Brown is a remarkably informed
actress on the ironies implicit in
contemporary manners, and on
tee motivations of those who make
aocial use of these. She is a de
cidedly valuable asset to the con
versational walkway that lows
through the three acts of “Jane.”
Her contribution, however, rep
resents something of a waste, if
not so much a one as lovely, high
spirited Adrienne Corri (of “The

Now it is the Japanese who
come along with evidence of a
flourishing talent for fllm-making
in “Rashomon,” at the Dupont.
Grand prize winner at the 1951
Venice Film Festival, “Rashomon”
is an impressive motion picture,
handsomely photographed and
acted with a great deal more verve
than you are likely to have been
expecting of an Oriental cast.
On the other hand, it is acted
with so much verve at times that
it may strike you as just plain
silly, which is a chance you’ll have
to take.
The Japanese do not deal with
frothy subjects in their photo
plays, or at any rate they have
not done so here. Man’s inhuman
ity to man and the possibility
that there may be a little hope
for him in spite of it all is the
subject under scrutiny in “Rasho
mon.”
It is examined by way of a
rather violent incident in a forest,
1,200 years ago, in a time of strife
and famiivs. The film opens with
a poor woodcutter and a priest
sitting in the shelter of a half
ruined city gate, the rashomon,
sadly pondering this cruel event.
A bandit, inflamed by the sight of
a well-turned ankle, has followed
a man and his wife into the woods,
ravished the wife and killed the
husband.
With his capture, “Rashomon
sets about the description of the
crime as seen by several different
pairs of eyes. This waxes a little
repetitious, but there is wonderful
subtlety in it. The bandit tells
his story, full of bravado. The
woman tells the same story, told
through a writhing medium Ju
dith Anderson would have loved
to play, a form of testimony ap
parently accepted in Japanese po
lice courts in 751 A. D.
Finally, after these varied tales
have been recounted to a cynical
citizen who has come in out of
the rain to join the priest and
woodcutter, the woodcutter breaks
down and admits that he was an
eyewitness to the whole affair. In
his account every one appears
ridiculous, the two men getting
into a clumsy, animal brawl only
after being goaded into it by the
shrieking woman, who has been
abandoned by both of them.
Through it all the priest’s heart
sinks lower and lower, but in the
end he has his faith restored,
just as it would have been in
Hollywood.
There is no counterpoint of
comedy, intentionally at least, in
“Rashomon.” but Director Achira
Curosawa has made it an intri
guing picture, occasionally an ex
citing one. He accents a lot of his
dramatic effect, it might be noted,
with the throbbing of an increas
ing taut, Ravel-like bolero.
The far-from-inscrutable cast is
headed by Toshiro Mifune, who
gets quite stormy at times as the
bandit, and Michiko Kyo. who has
a Barbara Stanwyck type field day
as the woman so shabbily used
by bandit and husband.

ask for a more congenial and cozy

aristocrats.
