Pa r a mount has "F r e n c Iv man's Creek," Columbia "The Fighting Gu ardsman and R-K-O is tossing the bankroll Into "T h e Spanish Main." Director Frank Borzage Is shooting a big sword fight for Harrison, Carroll (he latter picture this week. Paul Henreid and Barton MacLane, rival pirate captains, are trying to slit each other's gullets. The scene is the Inn of the Sea Turtle on the island of Tortuga around 16S0. Setting and action arc so reminiscent of, Fairbanks that you almost expect to sec Doug, wearing his thin black mustache and more deeply tanned than anyone else on the set, up there lunging with one of the swords. There's even Fred Cavens to bolster the illusion. Fred has bpen fencing teacher to two generations of Hollywood stars. He coached Doug and later he coached Doug, Jr. In "The Spanish Main," all the actors are his pupils and so is Hinnie Barnes. Binnie is one of the select few feminine stars who have learned fencing from Cavens. He taught Norma Talmadge for "Ashes of Vengeance." Constance Talmadge for "The Dangerous Maid" and Bebe Daniels for "Senorita" and "She's a Sheik." Bebe became so interested that she took lessons for six months after the picture was fini.'ihed and even joined fencing clubs. Cavens has supervised literally J hum!ids of movie duels. He can make them seem realistic without cuich danger of somebody getting ':ut.

She woie her long cape with the hood over her head. Drue slipped the hood back; her hair was disheveled and she'd been running. She came quickly toward us as Craig cried, "Druet For Gud's take, where have you been?" "Is it true?" she asked breathlessly. "About Dr. Chivery? I heard them in the servants' living room. I came up the back stairs. What happened?" I couldn't answer; disappointment was like a vise on my throat, for I had so counted on her alibi. Craig said heavily, "Oh, it's true enough. He's been murdered; in the meadow, north of the house, by that little brook. Drue . . ." She was very near us and Craig caught her hand, pulling her so he could look closely in her face, "Drue, where were you?" "I was out, Craig. I had to get out." "How did you do it? You were under guard." "It was easy he thought I was Sarah. Oh, it doesn't matter" "It does mattf-r. Tell me exactly what you did. Hurry..." His tone was as savage in a queer way as the tight, hard grip of his hands, and as demanding. Drue said, "Wiikins, the other trooper, was relieved. I heard him tell the man who took his place that there were two nurses and not to stop the oliuir one he told him which door entered your room, Sarah. And from the way he spoke I was pretty sure that the niw guard got the idea we were both in our rooms. I had to get outdoors. I was sick with thinking and oh, 1 had to get out of this horrible hcue!" h checked herself abruptly and her pye met Craijj's fully. Tnt-n Drue looked away. She said ?tn!ly, "So I simply wrapped myself in my cape and pulled the hod over my head, walked out Sarah's dour and along the hall, lit saw me, but he didn't see uiy lace a- way, he didn't atop me." Drue looked at her hands. Craig's eyes were veiled. He said, as utility as Drue, "Where did you ffo?" "I walked along the little path toward the Chivery cottage. I don't think anyone saw me. 1 . . . Suddenly her voice broke and she eried, terrified and despairing, "Craig, Craig, what is it? Who is it? What dreadful thing is happening here?" The stiffness that had been like a wall between them broke down with that. She leaned forward swiftly and bis arm went around her, drew her down close to him so her face was against his, and he cried softly and shakenly, "Oh, my darling, don't afraid . . Then, in the queerest little hush as if everything in the world had stopped for an instant, waiting for that very thing to happen she turned her face and their lips met. I got up quietly, went to the window and looked out into the winter dusk. I did wonder af ber a moment how his wound was making out Still he had one good arm. And now the eourse of true love wUl run smooth . . . But the next instant I wasn't so sure. For the door opened and Alexia came into tha room and OLJ It crops up today. Henreid Is supposed to Jump back just In time to escape a murdroiu slash from MacLane's heavy, old-fashioned rapier. Hii flngcra art resting on a table and, for a Jipllt second. It seems as if he has waited too long lo Jerk them away from the descending blade. He makes it, but oh, how close! After the scene, everybody l Jittery about the near accident. John Emery, who had been standing close to Henreid in the scene, shakes his head. "Whew!" says Emery. "I could just see his severed fingers dancing around the table like worms!" The wisecrack is gruesome, but similar thoughts have occured to everybody. Henreid Is calmer than most. 1 "Say." he remarks with a rueful grin. "This is pretty rugged. Maybe I had better go back to lighting ladies' cigarets." The bobby-soxers' delight,' Van Johnson, Is working in M-G-M'a "Week-Ends at the Waldorf." Van is playing a flyer home on leave and facing an operation from which there is slight chance of his recovery. That's why he decidea to atay at the Waldorf and that's how he meets Lana Turner, who plays a stenographer. Lana Ian t working today. Director Bob Leonard is about to make a simple shot of Van walking out of the Tony Sarg Oasis room at the Waldorf. The room la such a perfect replica of the real tiling that Ted Saucier, genial pub licity director of the Waldorf, now on loan to M-G-M, saya that no New Yorker, visiting the set today, would expect to leave without paying a check. The average movie fan, of course, still will be more Interested in Van Johnson than In the authenticity of the sets. Well, while Van and 1 are discussing the holidays, he makes a revealing remark: "I hate holidays," he says. "They always seem to be for families and I'm always alone.

Drue must have heard tK-door, too, for she sat up quickly, her face radiant and her eyes shining until she saw it was Alexia standing there. Craig said, "Come in AUxlA.' What is it?" Drue with a single sweeping ftto-tion, in which the cape fell about her like a shield rose from the bed, and turned to face Alexia, her golden head high. Alexia's lovely face looked cruel; her eyes gleamed between thdis drooping eyelashes. She paused ipt a moment, then she came straight to the bed and stood as near to Craig as was possible, as if by Her very physical presencs she could sonnrato Craitr and Drue. ' i I The widow then announced, n ...... 'A 41. Craig loves me. Not you. He belongs to me and I belong to him. It's always been that way. You came between us once, but he didn't love you even then." s Drue's eyes blazed. "I was his wife. We loved each other!" Alexia's voice, husky and vehement, rose-over Drue's. "No, he didn't love you. I knew it then. He married you, yes. We'd had a misunderstanding; he did it to hurt m. Just as I, later, married Conrad td hurt Craig. But Craig never loved you." r "I was his wife. . , Again Alexia laughed. "He never loved you. He told me so. He asked me and his father to help him get the divorce' Craig was as colorless as the pillow; his eyes were eloped, hii mouth a straight white line. And he didn't say a word. I said, my hand on Drue's arm, "Go buck to your room; I'll come to you. Hurry." "I'm free now," went on Alexis. "And Craig i free snd . . ." It was then that Alexia's eye fastened on Drue's cape; a quick look of speculation changed to one of frank snd glitteruig triumph. hhe cried. "So you weren't Iii your room under guard when Cliud wan murdered! You were out of ths lioufte! You have no alibi!" Craig opened his eyes. "Drue," he said, in a voice that was as cold and chill as if she were a stranger to him, "Im sorry. Alexia is quits right about everything. You'd better go back to your room now. Drue ttood perfectly still for ft moment. Craig met her eyes across barriers that now, I thought, eould never be dissolved. Then Drue said clearly, "I'm going, Craig. And I'm never coming batk." She turned so swiftly toward the door that I had to run to follow lier. No one was in the corridor. X didn't speak to her. At the stairway I hurried ahead to look down to the landing with some vague ide of stopping Drue so the trooper wouldn't see her, but he was oneT luckily, for Drue swept down thrf corridor and into her room. I fol lowed her and said, "Drue Drue "Sarah, don't!" The little dog was there and came iiuiikiy.

"She's all right," I assured him. "Thais one advantage of being practically under arrest. She is protrcted by being guarded. His e-es clouded again. "Yes," he said.
