Friday Morning flakC February 23, 1945 'All for the Marines ... Who 've Earned It By Hedda Hopper HOLLYWOOD — When Peter O'Crotty was double-crossed by a hand" grenade, he decided to write "Or.ce a Marine," taken from the marine slogan, "Once a Marine—Always a Marine. When Cmdr. John Ford heard about the story he phoned O'Crotty and said, "Wait for me. I want "to direct it." Now Bob Bums Glenn Ford and Walter Brennan (who lost his teeth while with the marines in the last war) want to be in it. Commandant Ralph Davis is trying to peutcchnicolor film. They're £oinp*to give it the works, and should. If you don't know what marines have done, by golly, vou'rc going to when this is re- ieased . . . Ted Donaldson may do Jod'y in "The Yearling." . . . /Uin Miller is telling her friends she will not marry Vincent Fotre. Don't ask me why. I thought it was a catch. Girls Together—Meow! John Frederick£' H opening sure brought out the, women. This year every blasted hat was becomingly " feminine, and such variety! From felts to feathers. Crowd was entertaining, too. Mrs. Charlie Chaplin couldn't concentrate on bonnets; kept looking from her emerald chip ring to Sally Wright's 300-carat star sapphire. Mrs. Ralph Blum and Minna Wallis were so afraid you wouldn't know they were vdth Faye Emerson Roosevelt thev darned near smothered her. She kept fanning herself to get air Constance Collier came m 2'ke a ship in full said, pulled Lillian Gish down on a chair that blocked all models. Cutest model was Ann Hunter. If some producer doesn't grab that girl and star her, then they're more careless than I think they are. A Salute to Good Joes Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer celebrated its 25th year. Their Ted Saucier showed them how to give a party. I've been to super- parties there, but the one on "Week End at the Waldorf" set had stars, grips, electricians painters. Harry Joe, Mike, and they were all there in the spotlight with Ginger, Lana, Pidgeon Lucille Ball (whose hairs prcttv now) and other stars. Th-se are the pals I'd worked with for seven years. They said, "Heck, Hopper, give up that silly column - come on back to movies! We used to have fun. Then Bob Leonard's chauffeur, Foss said, "Amen!" Foss, incidentally, used to take my son fishing!

One for all and all for one, and all for the benefit of "Week End at the Waldorf." "Ten Little Indians went to dine, one went to choke himself, then there were nine," was Mischa Auer's exit line when he finished "Ten Little Indians." Then he went out to chase a "peeping torn" and broke his leg. Copyright by Chicago Tribune OV|E G Ml What to See in Local Theaters Opening Today Star— "Salute to the Marines" and "Young Ideas."

E. Hollis Strong, stimulating drama, pregnant with thought, yet having its lighter side to relieve any i heaviness, "The Searching Wind" in the University Theater presentation Thursday night at Kingsbury hall, received intelligent directoral treatment and a reading of competence sufficient to make it thoroughly interesting, at times of gripping intensity. One felt, however, a lack of confidence in themselves on the part of the cast that made for uneven performances. This Lillian Hellman play opens in the spring of 1944 in the drawing room of an American diplomat's home in Washington, and its moving climax is staged there at a later hour of the same evening. In between, a series of flashbacks, acened in Rome as Mussolini marches into the city; in Berlin, Paris, reveals significant events of 1922, 1923, 1938 and the factors that have brought about that climactic passage in a family's life—when a son, victim of war, must tell his parents of his humiliation because of their part in making that war possible. The play is Miss Kellman s protest against the appeasement policy, the laissez faire attitude in America, and elsewhere, that permitted HHlerism to prevail; it points out the guilt of those who in the critical hours saw what SOW!

It is likely, however, that acting of greater dramatic power is required to bring full conviction. There is a secondary thread of interest in the domestic disturbance in which the Hazens are involved, and which threatened to overshadow the sociologic and political aspects. It has to do with the old romantic triangle. The performance of Sgt. Holt Monohan in the role of the diplomat who acquiesces in appeasing policies, revealed a certain finish but was too emotionally restrained. Algene Ballif, the Emily Hazen of the piece, and Miriam Taylor, as "the other woman," gave themselves to their roles admirably, and Stanley Russon did excellent work as the testy, wicked-tongued old newspaper publisher. V. I?oug Snow again won credit for himself in his reading of the returned soldier's role. Except for faulty diction, Fred Harris performed splendidly as the German statesman, whose Interview with Hazen was a dramatic and revealing passage. Several minor roles were well handled, Joseph Bywatcr as a French refugee, Harold Bowman's Italian waiter, and Serita Jones as Hazen's secretary. The stage decor was admirable throughout the several scenes, and the play had been well costumed by Mrs, Shirley P. Jones. mN IS MORGAN MANOR PARKKR.
