t d o n t h e to Cordova. The Famous Boyer Technique Just Won't Wait, Says HOLLYWOOD.--John Galsworthy famous playwright and novelist, once snld that by the cigars they smoke, and the composers they love, you know the texture of men's souls. It's an interesting yardstick but the cast and company of "Confidential "Confidential Agent," a mystery melodrama melodrama co-starring Charles Boyers and Lauren Bncall, have another. The way men make love. They wntchcri Charles Boyers In EImorons dnlllnncc with Lauren Bacal) Bacal) and then in serious mood, when nil the intensity of the screen star who has been called, "Great Lover," came out in a flood-tide of emotion. It is easy to dismiss, his method with a. flip "Oh, that's Gallic tcch- j nlque," or "He pitches woo in the " Judy continental manner." The fact remains that, millions of women find, the Boyer approach provocative and stimulating and millions of men wonder what the actor · in his forties has that they haven't got. The big love-scene in "Confidential "Confidential Agent" is typical. of Boyer at his I best and wooing-est. and Miss Bacali comes toward him on the deck of a ship at sunset. A per- feet setting. There is a cool offshore offshore breeze, Boyer looks at her for a moment. His hands gently touch her shoulders. They move to her face and encircle, tenderly, so very tenderly, her head. He murmurs, murmurs, so softly that the sensitive mike has to come lower to pick up the words, that he loves her and then very slowly his lips meet hers. We rest our case here. In "Gaslight," operating with I n - j grid-Bergman, Beyer's manner wnsi similar. Not torrid or typhoonic, | sweeping the woman off hej 1 feeti in a half-nelson embrace, but sim-' ply, the Gentle Approach. If you ' recall "The Constant Nymph," Boyer wooed Joan Fontaine Fontaine in the same style, in a sort of poetry of emotion. I He showed consideration and solicitude, a rare tenderness a sharp contrast to the tank-like attack of many other screen lovers who apparently apparently do not consider the pre-j liminaries. The verdict, bused on the yardstick yardstick of love-making, Charles Boyer is a gentle soul and a really nice guy'. And so says Mrs. Humphrey Bo- Eart.
