For this new Joe Pasternak Technicolor tuner, starring Wallace Beery (imagine him in a musical!) lyrical Jane Powell, teen-ager's delight Elizabeth Taylor, Latin bombshell Carmen Miranda, handsome Robert Stack and Xavier Curat's popular dance band, contains enough talent for a three-rim' circus. Everybody has a chance vo net "into the act" in this wnrrmn" Story ot smalltown family life centering on an impressionable dauph- ler (Jane Powell) caught in the toils of adolescent love, the boy friend (Robert Stack) who plays hard to get, the scheming uirl friend (Elizabeth Taylor) wno mis- lakes sophistry for sophistication all. topped by a comedy ot errors resulting from a mistaken belie 1 that Pa (Wallace Beery.)) has fallen for a sultry Latin charmer when all he wants to do is learn lhe rumba so that he can impress Ma (Selena Royle). The sequences in which Carmen Miranda initiates the stalwart Beery into the esoteric contortions of. the rumba are as funny as you nave seen on the screen'in some time. The amusing Miss Mirand" also scores with three South American songs, while lilting Jane Powell also takes time out from her family and romantic problems to Sing such varied numbers as 'Temptation," "it's a Most Unusual Day," "Love is Where You Find It." "Judalinc," I'm Strictly ?r> the Corny Side," "Through the "Home, Sweet Home " Elizabeth Taylor- is effective as the spoiled but neglected noor little rich girl, Robert Stack, in nis first post-war screen role, is enormously likable as the object of the ladies' affections and Scotty Beckett adds laughs in an excellent characterization of a self-important young man Who has just reached his voice- changing age. Producer Pasternak and Director Richard Thorpe have made their new M-G-M offering fast-movin.p. chuckling, easy to look at in its Technicolor hues and delightful to listen to in its varied score by a number of Hollywood's top composers.

The Sign of the Ram," Co lumbia s picturization of the best selling novel by Margaret Fcrgu ••son which has, as its loading char aeter, one of the most v/idcly- Jiscusscd heroines of fiction, is Doming to the Rialto theater 01 .aunday. The film marks the return to the screen of Susan Peters in the powerful, emotional role of a woman who tries to make a weapon oi. Jove. This is a startling dcpar iurc- from the sweet young inge- nues which Miss Peters formerly portrayed, and is the typo of characterization which issues a challenge lo the imagination and real dramatic ability of any actress. Also starred in "The Sign of the it am," an Irving Cummings production, arc Alexander Knox, Phyllis Thaxter, Peggy Ann Garner lion handell. Dame May Whilty and Allene Roberts. Two newcomers, Ross Fold and Diana Douglas, arc importantly -catured. as well as veteran character actress Doris Lloyd. lhe setting of the Charles Bennett screenplay (he also wrote "Un- comjucred") is Cornwall, England. When Sherida Binyon (Phyllis 'ihaxter) arrives to be secretary to authoress Leah St. Aubyn (Susan. Peters), she .senses the unusually strong grip which the lovely Leah nolds over her husband (Alexander Knox) and his three children (Ross Ford, Allene Roberts and Pcgy Ann Garner). The family is intensely devoted to Leah, and the latter uses this love to gain her own ends. The story is said to reach its suspcnsc- ful climax after Leah breaks up the forthcoming marriages of two of the children, and inspires the youngest to attempt murder! According to advance reports, tnc film has its lighter moments, too. One particularly charming scene is said to take place when Susan Peters sings the popular ballad "I'll Never Say 'I Love You' to Anyone But You," and plays her own piano accompaniment.
