She wears boots and six-' guns in the Republic release, "Johnny Guitar," which opens here to-day. Miss Crawford, unlike some of her contemporaries, has shown no tendency eithei to take a back seat or to slip into "elderly" roles. All her recent films have presented $ ner as a neroine a mature and worldly heroine, perhaps, but a heroine none the less. In "Johnny Guitar," which is photographed in Trucolor and has an Arizonan setting, she appears as a ruthless, ambitious but true-hearted gambling house proprietress, who earns the resentment of the local settlers by plajitingl her establishment beside the route of a projected railway. She takes possession, besides, of enough land to build an entire town along the future track. The ranchers, who see their lands threatened by her activities, are easily worked into a lynch-minded fury when an embittered rival convinces them that she is also an accessory to murder. Johnny Guitar, the hero of the story, is that stock "West ern character: the gunman who wants to reform but finds his past and his reputation tod strong for him. The role is played by Sterling Hayden, Mercedes McCambridge, who won an "Oscar" for her performance in "All the As well, she has sunervised "You must have a blanket Ki"8's Men," has a meaty a colour cartoon sequence and or something similar," she suggested a poster theme all said, "for the cut-outs to stick with the same object in view on to the screen surface. helding the islanders to pro- "The . missionaries used tect their crops. flannelgraphs years and years Mr. Phelan is the wife of ag0.

Last week it was "The Egyptian"; this week it's "The Affairs of Messalina," from Columbia, with a setting of first-century Rome. which were as celebrated in her day as they are in ours, were endured with patience, indulgence or ignorance by her husband until she persuaded a handsome youth named Gains Silius to divorce his own wife and so throuch a form of marriage with her. An informer broueht news of this to Claudius, who was away from the city. Claudius ordered her death, and she was executed in the Gardens of Lucullus. which she had obtained for herself by having the original owner put to death for treason. She was 26. For further information see the 11th book of Tacitus's "Annals, or for a more tuiuunui vciMun, rtuDcn Graves. Claudius the God.' man who -made "Puccini, Filmgoers are becoming quite well acquainted with Messalina. who was last portrayed by Susan Hayward in "Demetrius and the Gladiators." In that film the wicked Messalina made a public repentance of her sins at the end The new film is a little more authentic than that. Yet we will not spoil it for you if- we give you a summary of the true facts of the Messa lina dossier: Valeria Messalina was the third wife of the Emperor Claudius, Her debaucheries, MRS. R. S. PHELAN, of Mosman, with a huge lei .of pink frangipanni, photographed on her recent visit to Aitutaki, one of the Cook Islands. a "pig" boat. This year she will spend a holiday in the Gilbert Islands, and her job will take her to Tahiti. To her, a voyage brings a close-to-home visual approach to the subjects that the commission asks her to promote in cartoons, posters, or flannelgraphs. The flannelgraph, Mrs. Phelan described as one of her oldest, simplest, and most proven media of visual education. To make, take strips of paper, draw, paint, then cut out figures or objects depending on the theme, and back the little cutouts with sandpaper. Find a blanket or other rough-surfaced screen and the stage is set for a tableau. Finding a blanket was Mrs. Phclan's problem when she went Inst to Samoa, armed with a little box of cutouts characters, . saucepans, and bottles that would show the island mothers how to bottle-feed their babies. He'd been using it for teaching illiterates." Though there is a big percentage of literacy among the islanders of Fiji, Tonga, Niue, American and Western Samoa and the Cook Islands the last groups that Mrs. Phelan visited the visual aids must, she explained, be at "village level." Their purpose is fundamental education. As she Visits group on group of islands. Mrs. Phelan watches audience reaction to the few Aids that she takes with her, and she meets the men and women who will give the commentary and show the cartoons, film strips or flannel-graphs that are sent out from her Sydney office. Until a year ago, the visual aids section of the commission simply kept and distributed films that make up its film library. Now it has gone into the production business, and many isianucrs nave aircaoy seen commission-made film strips on the uses of soap, on soil erosion arid copra cultivation. And, before setting out on her next island trip, Mrs. Phelan will have scripted and produced film strip and a flannelgraph to give the islanders some of fundamental "pointers" on dental care.
