Chicago Sticky Feet Help Hilltop Cagers CHICAGO, (/P) — Coach ""Nels Norgren of the University of Chicago's basketball team hoped his boys had all the bad basketball out of their systems Thursday. The Maroons took their second beating of the season from Marquette Wednesday night, 23 to 15, on their own floor. Earlier in the season at Milwaukee, they made Marquette hustle for a 25 to 21 decision. Marquette clamped a stout defense on .Chicago, but the Maroons appeared flatfooted throughout the contest. Chicago will open its Big Ten season against Indiana, hall-owner with Purdue of the 1936 title and figures to absorb a •walloping unless the boys produce a form-reversal. ' tant to the industry to note that costume stories found such striking favor, and that music, played a major role in four of the "best ten." Of equal interest, certainly, is the classical trend instanced by the selection of works by Shakespeare and Dickens, Hervey Allen and Marc Connolly. The fact that 'The Green Pastures" and "A Midsummer Night's Dream" found inclusion^tends to, support.: the, theory that "the cinema successfully las coped with the fantasy problem. A total of 149 pictures was nominated for the 1936 "best ten" list as against 166 in 1935. The honor roll dropped from 49 to 44. Eligible pictures for 3L936 numbered 387. Not a few reviewers departed from the eligible list to. cast votes for "Romeo and Juliet," "Winterset," "Born to Dance" and "Theodora Goes Wild," all generally released after The Film Daily poll opened. These four films will be included in the 1937 poll. For a second' successive year, foreign productions failed to en.- thuse American critics. Not a single foreign picture found a place among the "ten best," and few received more than scattering votes. There was a gratifying increase in the number of critics who carried the poll to their own readers through the medium of simultaneous local symposiums, and interest throughout the United States soared to new levels as a result. Generally The Film Daily's "ten best" . will determine local poll winners. In this connection, it is noteworthy that fan and professional critic manifested a common standard as a rule. Finally, it is significant that the "ten best" of 1936 are well keyed to "box office." There may be exceptions, yet for those exceptions, if they exist, it is easily possible to see longevity that must turn the scales. * * * The Strand has boolccc ror us Friday and Saturday bill "Rio Grande Ranger," with Bob Allen, and "Dangerous," with Bette Davis and Franchot lone. | . t >! * "Adventure in Manhattan" Booked at Local Theaters That 'tantalizing tale of Jean Arthur and Joel McCrea loose in Manhattan entitled "Adventure in Manhattan" plays at the Cecil and palace theaters Friday only.
