PAGE 14 THE PITTSBURGH PRESS WEDNESDAY. JULY 76, 1949 Marquee Men Have Busy Week 'New Openings (Listed for Triangle I By HENRY WARD .The fellows who change the theater marquees are having a busy week. New movies all opening all over town it seems. .Today finds Henry V moving out of his quarters at the Art Cinema to make - way for luscious Viviane Romance and "The Queens Keckace." The film was made in France and based on the Alexander Dumas story of intrigue in the days of Marie Antoinette. The Fulton opens "Another Part cf the Forest." a picture adapted from Lillian Hellman's hit play of the same name. Pittsburghers saw an excellent performance of this p!ay at the Playhouse last season. The movie version has such stalwarts as Fredric March. Edmond O'Brien and Dan Duryee. There will be colorful dancing on the Penn screen tomorrow when the "Easter Parade" marches into the Sixth Street movie house. Fred As- taire comes back from a two years' "retirement" to star in the Irving Berlin musical along with Judy Garland. Ann Miller and Peter Larvford. It is of course done in color Technicolor. On Friday Joan Fontain's efforts in v Letter From an Unknown Woman," at the Harris, moves on to make room for a more lively subject, "Feudin. Fussin and A-Fightin' ", which is a direct opposite of the Fontaine tear jerker. A glance at the cast of characters gives you some idea of what to expect. Listed are Marjorie Main, Donald O'Connor. Percy Kilbride, Joe Besser and a flock of others. The Stanley is expected to hold its very excellent "Key Largo" for another week and Walt Disney's "Melody Time" will stay a little longer to delight one and all at the Warner. Regardless, a pinch-hitting re viewer suddenly wakes up to the real reason for one K. Monahan choosing this week for his mid-summer breather. NOTES FROM A SPIKE Jack Fina. who arranged the "Flight of a Bumble Bee" into the "Bumble Boogie" In "Melody Time," is leading his own orchestra at Bill Green's this week . . . Operators of West View Park have contrived a novel stunt for visitors to the playground. The Planetarium's "End of the World." now showing, will run throughout the month of August . . . Gordon Dilworth. like LeRoi Operti of the Civic Light Opera players, has had all sorts of parts this season. He is currently a punch-drunk gob and adds much to the merriment at the Stadium this week. Stadium-goers, incidentally, may find it a little rough to forego their stcgies. pipes, cigars and cigarets when they have to go back indoors for their entertainment. Just a-sit-tin' there in the soft evening light dragging on a favorite briar or a iour-bit Havana while watching Mimi Walters is indeed a pleasure. A lot of folks are disappointed because they didn't see more of Mr. Blanding's Dream House, in the movie that is. They figure that since they sat through the building thereof they could have been in-Yited to a house-warming or been asked to look around a bit at least. m. z. mmsemm ran i ' -ZZls.i"'"r J& 23 I Sat 11 . m BACK FROM RETIREMENT Fred Astaire brings his nimble feet and broad grin to the Penn tomorrow in "Easter Parade." He is shown here with Ann Miller, headliner in a cast that includes July Garland and Peter Lawford. Shows to See And When PITT STADIUM "Hit the Deck" Civic Ugm Opera Company. Toulebt at 8:46.
