of from state and federal committees, an entire French style passenger train, built by the company, from locomotive to cars, was taken over the rails to the location, creating something of a sensation enroute to Chatsworth', California, only important interior setting on a stu- dlo sound stage was the Algerian cafe where Tilly Loach dances the fiery dance of Irena, Six weeks of rehearsals preceded the scene, and eight O tiled Nails gtrl* acted as background, while every Arabian-blooded atmosphere player In Hollywood was crowded into the tiers of the circular setting. Elaborate Jewelry worn by the dancing girls came from Jam lei Hasson, technical adviser, who purchased It several years ago from the real Ouled Nails girls in Algeria, when he .visited hJs father 1 ! winter home. Haaadn is a member of en* of Arabia's first fa«uli«*. At the end of production, reports showed Hollywood's atmosphere players profited by more than J50,000-fn salaries for services In the picture. Approximately a half-million feet of technicolor negative had been used. Since technicolor exposes three negatives at a time, each recording a primary color, that would equal about 167,000 feet in black and white. this amount, about half was printed in the of "rushes." The finished picture will run two hours, which will make it about 10,800 feet In length. And ao now a.salute to Producer David Selznlck, young- and enterprising, whose bigh- callbre productions have repeatedly restored confidence in Hollywood at times when an absolute boycott of pictures was threatened. let us not forget-Director REchard Bolcslawaki, himself a leader and an artist, a sympathetic tmdcntsiider of human nature and expression.
