THE EVENING STAR. Washington, D. C. FRIDAY, APRIL 94, 1953 The Passing Show Charm of Mexican Village Spread on Capitol Screen By Jay Carmody “Sombrero.” which opened at the Capitol yesterday, is. a movie made with an obvious affection for Mexican village life, but also with too little attention to rules of film story telling. This is not a happy combination. The film, with a veritable herd of Metro’s purebred stars, is based upon Josefina Niggli’s novel. "A Mexican Village.” This was quite a popular tale in its 4 original form which leads at least one reader to suspect that Miss Niggli must have done a con siderably tidier job than the Hollywood adaptation turns out to be. Under the direction of Norman Foster, the various strands of the story separate so confusingly that the snugness which is the reputed charm of village life dis appears almost entirely. This is rather a sad loss even when shared among as many name players as Ricardo Montalban, Pier Angeli, Vittorio Gassman, Yvonne de Carlo, Cyd Charisse. etc. As the picture progresses, the ways of the Mexican villagers seem as helter-skelter and ex temporized as our own. Everyone knows how intolerable that ar rangement is. i *** * j The Mexicans pictured in “Sombrero” are a volatile, hand-] some, fun-loving lot, including even the village priest who be lieves in happiness here and now for his innocent, childlike flock. | The story of the village exist- j ence is told chiefly in the char acters of three young males and a corresponding number of fe males. One of the former trio Is the vibrant young village cheesemaker (Montalban), an Impetuous romantic and an in corrigible practical joker. His effort to end a long time feud with the neighboring village, in order to marry Miss Angeli, its most attractive native, is the plot’s chief thread. The second young man (Gass man) is the son of the town’s leading aristocrat. He is tra ditionally committed to marry his opposite number in the vil lage society but. being young and liberal, he is emotionally dedi cated to a river bank beauty (Miss De Carlo). Completing the trio of vibrant young villagers, is the candy vender. It is his dramatic mis fortune to fall in love with the lovely gypsy sister of Mexico’s greatest matador and to live un happily in the prospect that the bull-fighter will kill him on sight. Any one of the three stories ' would have been enough for the average film and there are evi dences in Director Foster's han dling of the story that he fre quently feels this way himself. ** * * In its general flavor, “Som brero” does manage to catch something of the popular feel ing in this country that Para dise lies just south of the Rio Grande River. As photographed in M-G-M’s vivid Technicolor, it is a land of bland days and enticing nights whose people spend the sunlit hours resting up for their nighttime roaming. As ways of life go, this one is productive of a community dis position that harrassed humans on this side of the border may well envy. Even the biggest blusterers in “Sombrero” are agreeable and amusing and until Nina Foch shows her real na ture. villainy is totally invisible on the Capitol’s screen. It is inevitable that in a pic ture as big and good-hearted as “Sombrero,” some dramatic frag ments are bound to appear. One such touch is that given by Span ish Dancer Jose Greco when he gives a lively sample of his spe cialty. Another is a second danc ing excerpt, this one by Miss Charisse who dances the gypsy out of her soul one night on a moonlit mountain top. The acting requirements of i “Sombrero” are the type that j should not. and do not, prove j burdensome to the ora mental people to whom Metro has as signed the various roles. ** * * Singer Bill Lawrence makes an ] amiable headliner for this week's stage show at the Capi- ■ AMUSEMENTS.

Hollywood Dian Bogey's Phone Call Requires 4 Days ■ 1 By Sheilah Graham HOLLYWOOD. Humphrey Bogart tried un successfully for four days to get a trans-Atlantic phone call through to Wife Lauren Bacall to find out what was holding up her departure for and arrival in Europe—it was Marilyn Monroe delaying the finish of “How to Marry a Millionaire.” ... Bogey’s Santana company is sending Gina Lollobrigida and her doctor hubby here to tubthump for “Beat the Devil.” Looks like Ray Milland’s tele vision show has found a sponsor —on CBS in the fall. Anne Baxter waxes poetic in her letter—“ Paris is like a huge set for a brilliant movie made ages ago. All the actors have gone home and a mob of extras are playing house in it.” . . . When Anne arrived at Le Bourget, she found she’d lost her driver’s license, so, instead of driving a Citroen around the French capital, she’s using taxis. Joan Tetzel, now with Alan Ladd in “Hell Below Zero,” re peats in Alan’s next. ** * * When Starlet Margie Millar, who rooms with two airline hostesses and a model, picks up the phone at their home, she says, “This is heaven—which angel d’ya want to talk to?” . . .
