We've done so, many times! Yet, it was only last week that we discovered how badly we've misused this statement! Now, foi 1 the first time; we can stand up in any man's court-room, swear the oath and take the stand. Then, rising to the full, erect height permitted by the wires attached to our lie-detector, we can look squarely into Hizzoner's bifocals and truthfully say, "Now, we've Really' seen everything: "And, believe-it, or not, we got the lull treatment in ONE afternoon!" * . i * * ...If Mike Todd forgot to include anything in his "Around The World In 80 Days," no one miss> ed it at the Press Showing. For the information oj any who may have heard a faint rumbling during the show, it was NOT one of our harmless California quakesi And, it didn't come from the excellent sound-track. That wan P. T. Barnuin turning over in his grave! Todd gave the master- showman's most extravagant gesture a three-lap handicap, raised all bets on a pat hand, doubled in Spades and picked up all the marbles in sight with his successful attempt to "out-Barnum" Mr Phineas T. Barnum! * » * When we left the Carthay Ch'- cle theatre, we were still on Mike T o d d' s Technicoloreil merry-go-round. We had seen Everything and were firmly resolved to henceforth spell Everything with a capital E. yet, we couldn't, for the ilfe of us, determine just what we'd seen! » • • We had just witnessed a preview of the world's best dressed travelogue, in breathtaking color — and still, travelogues don't have tender lovers' endings. Furthermore, Jove stories seldom have a world-famous comedian like Cantinfjas, stealing his way thr6ugh the plot and leaving mirthquakes in the wake of his screen larceny. * » » Was it 9 comedy? Not with an adventure theme so laden with suspense. Why, when the raiding party of screaming Indians, streaked with hideous war-paint symbols, attacked the ancient little train, every scalplock in the theatre automatically started to "reach for the sky, Podner," in the very best Western tradition. Of course, no Western ever indude'ct the thrilling rescue of a lovely Hindu princess (Shirley MacLaiuc) from the roaring i flumes of a ccremonical bier — and Jxult of thu population of India — during the frenzied rites .of suttee ! The exfratagranta aftfttcit of this film frequently predominate all else, in spite of exciting side diversions; As, for instant*, when f odd takes to the high seas with a trans-oceanic version of the Mississippi steamboat race where the ship is chopped into kindling wood to feed the failing boiler-room" fires. * * * PMhaps w6 can bo»a* an all- inclusive title from TV to loosely classify this presentation urider a newer show-business term, "Spectacular." Certainly it was a most expensive venture. Stellar names must have been signed in dozen lots. Besides Shirley, Cantinflas, David Niven and Robert Newton, the many parts — and even the smallest bits — are played by top-rariKing stars. As for production-staff—well, we've only so much space! Let's just say that only the fact Michael Angelo is no longer among us, kept his name from appearing on the Art Department payroll of "Around The World In 80 Days!" Every phase of production shows the type of quality contributed only by superioi craftsmen. * » * Sound deserves • special mention and the photography is about 10 degrees better than "superb." The sheer beauty conjured up by many of the color shots will actually make you gasp . * * * We humbly register our ONE "beef." We feel duty-bound to warn you about the Todd-AO Process. It seems to place the viewer right in the midst of the actors and action. With startling suddenness, you're on your own in a Spanish bull ring with an- ntiyed bulls — or being burned at the stake with Cantinflas — or on a train racing across a trestle. We didn't mind mixing with ftonald Coleman, Charles Boyer, Marlene Dietrich, George Raft, Frank Sinatra and all the rest but somewhere we must draw one Helluva definite line! Who wants to mingle with a war- party of bloodthirsty Indians, all widly searching for white men to SCALP? Thurtdoy, January 31, 1957 Algona (la.) Upp« Btt MefrtM-1 j at Camp l*endl«tohj Calif..
