HOLLYWOOD — Just as it's a® good idea to keep audiences guessing f ibout the out-come of a screen story, so may it be smart showmanship to begin fooling them as soon as they get settled in their seats. At any rate, Hollywood's doing it. The last time you were attracted to a theater by some well-known and memory-reviving title, chances arc you found the movie not only unlike the original book or play but greatly changed from the previous screen version. Metro's recent "Chocolate Soldier," for instance, actually contained the story of "The Guard? man," and the melange really shoulc have been called "Her Chocolate Guardsman." On the other hand, an awful lot of screen "originals" are new only nn their titles. Season after season, the Warner lot has remade Ihe same gangster plots, 20lh-Fox has filmed essentially the same musicals, and Universal has dished up the amc horror yarns. Once a year for the duration of my memory, Paramount has been reviving 'The Charm School' under various guises and usually with the word "college" in the titles. Money Makers Studios may blush a bit when caught hanging new tags on old merchandise, but they have a convincing defense for the remaking at least once each decade of favorite yarns Sach has been filmed twice before. The Wiggs yarn veered away from the book in the old stage adaptation and has been, further altered ever since. The book had Mr. Wiggs dead of alcoholism, but in subsequent version he ha been coming home jut in time to pay off the mortgage. The man who's sparking Miss Hazy will be Hugh Herbert.

A requent plea as licenses were bought was: "Haven't you some other number you can give me?" bearing many new twists but familiar titles. Scarcely anybody resents the changes, and millions of fans must enjoy them, because most such pictures make a lot of money. Fact is changes are necessary to the success of remakes. Some of these observations have come from Producer-Director Ralph Murphy, who's interested because he's just starting a program from remakes. He first made a survey of the kinds of pictures which were most popular during World War I, and from this he decided to do "Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch," "The Virginian,' and 'Merton of the Movies.' will be polished, though, and this production will be a costly one in Technicolor. Modern Merlon Writlen in silent days, "Merlon of the Movies" naturally is in for some extensive modernization, but fans will be surprised to find it's a musical. A young singing star is visiting her home for the world premiere of her new picture. Merton Gill, who was her leading man in high school plays, is given a part in Ihe festivi- lics, and press agenls accompanying the star see him as a natural for some true-young-love and heart-throb stories, so they arrange to take him back to Hollywood. Here, after a phony screen test anc a walk-on bit in a picture, Merton is given the customary brush-off. He finally attains real stardom, but no by any of the devices in the origina story.

THURSDAY PAPER to forecast sonic of the trends you may expect to see coming out of his Washington office. In making his blueprint for organizing war production, Nelson put in nearly a full week of 18-hour days He consulted a number of the men he has named to top posls in the new WPB set-up and his "personal brain-trustcrs," Sid Weinberg, Cliff Hill and Eddie Locke, who become now hi sprincipal assistants. The plan as evolved is Nelson's own doing. Summarizing the trends that this Nelson plan reveals, the highlights may be presented like this: "There aren't any supermen. Im not one," says Nelson candidly. "No one can foresee what the relations of the War Production Board should be to the Army and Navy. The present set-up is therefore an interim organization." That means further reorganization is coming. "I'm not being melodramatic. Revolutionary changes ,in organization only bring delay," Nelson declares. Tills accounts for the fact thai there aren't so many new names and faces in the WPB organization. In spite of this "go slow" attitude, Nelson kicked the old OPM in the head, swallowed make too much of thai.

Administrators of each of these divisions will have the job of allocating or rationing its share of every material within its own field. Take rubber as an example. Economic Warfare Board will decide how much of its share goes into tires j for civilian use in South America; Civilian Supply will decide how much of its share goes for busses or private owners, Lease-Lend will decide how Wear a bright new print now 'neath your coat — later through Spring!

JEKYLL and MR. HYDE" With INGRID BERGMAN — LANA TURNER the old priorities organization in the new Division of Industry Operations under the former associate priorities director J. S. Knowlson, and let the production division take over the job of sub-contracting and all the work of the contract distribution service which was organized to aid small business but didn't do the job-bccausc it didn't have the authority to aid small business. Field Men First Look for a vast expansion of the new WPB field service. The idea is not to try to settle everything in Washington, but to let problems be settled in the field by WPB men un the job and with firsthand knowledge of their problems. Keep an eye on the work of J. S. Knowlson, head of the new DIO —Division of Induslry Operations— which is to become increasingly important in getting as much production as quickly as possible. Knowlson is a Cornell engineer whose first experience was with General Electric. He comes to Washington from Chicago, where he was pvesident and board chainnan of Stewart-Warner. Nelson foresees no great issue on the problem of giving labor a voice in management. Each of his 50 or GO industry committees will be split into separate advisory committees from labor and management. The Iwo can meet separately or be called together | "I assume that both industry and labor arc just as much interested as ! am in getting production," says Nelson. This bespeaks an attitude of trus and confidence, not suspicion of cver> one's motives. Nelson wants all the ideas he can get from these committees, but won't question whether the ideas come from labor or management. Watch Butt William L. Bait, former head of the blCF industries, has two jobs under the new WPB organization, but don't much of its share goes to tank treads for Britain or landing wheel tires for the Dutch East Indies airforce, and so on. Priorities procedure will probably have to bo overhauled again, the changes in method resulting from the change in attitude toward the priorities problem. The priorities problem is different now from what it was when Nelson became priorities director last fall. And it will change again. Nelson envisages no resort lo commissar methods. Nevertheless, his naming of Ernest Kanzlcr, former head of OPM's automotive branch, as head of the automobile industry committee charged with converting the auto plants to war production gives Kanzlcr all of Nelson's power and practically makes him a czar of Ihe industry. It will be Kanzlcr's job to decide which plants will be permitted to continue making passenger cars for civilian use, if any. Other industries may gel their Kanzlcrs. Pooling, sub-contracting, contrac distribution, use of small bsuiness—all are definitely in the Nelson picture He starts with the assumplion tha the country must use all its manufacturers and that speed is essential Wind Speed The highest wind speed ever registered in the British Isles was in January, 1920, when 112 miles an hour was recorded at uilty, County Chase, Ireland.
