And all in color. Add it up and you have a long line at the boxoffice. And that's what happened at the Paramount yesterday when "Road to Bali". opened. The show is everything of which dreams are made for the combined followers of Crosby, Hope and Lamour, which amounts to quite an aggregation of moviegoers. The pro duction is popping with gags, and not bad ones. Burlesque romps merrily along with Hope and Crosby, tossing out playful spitballs at some of the other boxoffice winners winners of 1952, including Martin and lewis, "King Kong," "Tarzan," Esther Williams and "Oscar" winner winner Humphrey Bogart.

Women rise like vapors from jars wnen tne proper music is played, and disappear from whence they have emerged, and sea ser penis, apes, alligators, lions and monkeys all hobnob with the heroes, in friendly fashion or otherwise. The old mud, slime and pie throwing slapstick which has been inescapable in Hop pictures of the pasl, has thank you, Mr. Pro ducer been replaced with more original gag stuff in "Road to Bali The production has a fresh look- look- even including Dorothy 1. amour's South Seas costumes, which, if they are sarongs, have gone sophisticated.

"Carib bean." a red-blooded red-blooded red-blooded swash buckling saga of Hollywood piracy, opened at the Regent yesterday. It's complete with a duel of ships, torture, a branding, a slave rehcllion, a rattle royal and a pair of the most dastardly villains Paramount Paramount Pictures has ever put on a Rochester screen in 1958, anyway. John Payne, Arlcne Dahl, Sir Cedric Hardwicke and Francis L. Sullivan figure prominently. To tame the spectacle or to let your children's excitement cool off, for youngsters as well as adults appear appear to enjoy the whole showing thoroughly "Navajo" is quite satisfactory satisfactory as a second feature. This film, which has won several awards including one from Parents' Maga zine, rivals the main attraction. "NAVAJO" has an exciting story too, hut has advantages of being somewhat educational and highly imaginative as well. It ssas filmed entirely on the Navajo Indian Reservation, Reservation, and includes excellent photography photography of very picturesque scenery. In "Caribbean" the only "good guy' is the hero, John Payne, ar. American soldier of fortune. There are lots of "bad guys." Sir Cedric Hardwicke a pirate chief such a trusting character he has a food taster eat some of all his food to make sure he won't be poisoned oy his crew, Francis L. Sullivan plays an overbearing planter-merchant planter-merchant planter-merchant who lives on an impregnable Carib bean island, Hardwicke's mortal enemy. Willard Parker plays the island overseer, who heats and kills the slaves unmercifully. AM) ARLtNK Dahl, cast as Hardwicke's daughter, shows she is not averse to cruelty herself until, of course, she falls in love with Payne and is transfigured to sweetness sweetness and light. All these attractive characters have a fine time among themselves until T'ayne, spying for Hardwicke on Sullivan, gets into the knife fight with Parker. This is Ihe signal for the slave revolt against Sullivan and an attack on the island by Hardwicke's Hardwicke's pirates. H TKCHNICOLOR is put to all its use in "Caribbean." There are lots of opportunities for stirring tropic photography and the cameramen have taken advantage of all of them. "Navajo, produced by Hal Bart- Bart- lett, and written and directed by Norman Foster, is the story of a child, and is semi-documentary semi-documentary semi-documentary in that it tells much of Ihe life and history of the Nasajo tribe.

UNDER CARIBBEAN MOON Arlene Dahl and John Payne are stars of Regent's new pirate adventure, "Caribbean." Film Cliches of Any Yedr: Quinn Mdkes '53 List By EDITH K. ROOSEVELT I OLLYWOOD tin In spite of Cinerama and 'other new-fangled new-fangled new-fangled gadgets, movies in 1953 will show the same old cliches that have always always been popular, actor Anthony Quinn predicted yesterday. "The domestic drama in which wifie lets hubby in on the big secret by knitting on a tiny garment is here to stay," said Quinn. " 'I'm going to have a baby' would be too easy for the average screen writer." There's sure to be a movie about college football in which John Smith goes into the game in the last two seconds of play scoring the winning touchdown in spite of an injured back, a sore toe, and the near loss of his girl. Movie fans may expect, Quinn said, many musicais with the "plant ed song cue. Example: Darling, you look glorious tonight, eyes shine like the pants of Your a blue Your Mind 2.

AND WATCH for the slapstick comedy in which the comic tells his wife: "You couldn't drag me to that party with a team of horses." (Next cut shows the guy being towed to the party by a team of truck horses.) Quinn, who's now acting in "East of Sumatra," said there are bound to be many "psychological" murder mysteries in 1953 in which'the kill er's inner thoughts keep coming back to him over the sound tracks: "You killed Byron Hysopple. You killed Byron Hysopple. You killed Byron Hysopple!" The circus picture in which the clown hides deep personal tragedy beneath his grotesque painted grimace grimace will always be popular. (His wife is in Tehachapi on a dope rap and two of the kids are due to graduate from reform school in San Qucntin.) t IN THESE troubled times. Quinn said, there will be a rash of patriotic patriotic wars films in which the captain calls for volunteers for a dangerous dangerous mission and the entire company falls all over each other in an attempt attempt to get the assignment even the comedy relief mess sergeant with a skillet in one hand and a bologna sausage in the other. There will also be the stranded-below-water stranded-below-water stranded-below-water stranded-below-water stranded-below-water submarine picture in which a young pharmacist's mate flips his lid. but is brought out of it by the kindly skipper who slaps him back to real'ty.
