Robinson and Joan Bennett are co-starred. Dan Dur-yea has the leading featured role. The same trio, it is recalled, scored emphatically in Fritz Lang's "The Woman in the Window." The same Fritz Larg directed and produced "Scarlet Street." The new production, presented by Walter Wanger and released by Universal, is said to deal elementally with a man's uncontrolled infatuation and its tragic consequences. Dudley Nichols contrived the screenplay which Is based upon the novel and play, "La Chienne" by Georges de la Fouchardiere in collaboration with Mouezy-Eon. Robinson is seen as the credu enchantress, the glamorous bait in a trap set to snare the man but in which she herself is eventually de stroyed. screen s cast are Jess Barker, Margaret Lindsay, Rosalind Ivan and Samuel S. Hinds, all well known among Hollywood's more distinguished performers. (of a man who can only be freed from the over-powering obsession of lucious lips and a taunting smile by murder) and of another girl whose sultry beauty and warm, inviting embrace holds the promise of tragedy. It is claimed that never has a theme quite like this been told; never has any story been told with such sheer shock and suspense from start to finish and rarely has a motion picture achieved such gemlike perfection of acting, direction and production. This outstanding picture brings Alice Faye, more exciting and glorious than ever, back to the screen in her first momentous dramatic role. Dana Andrews, whose portrayal in "Laura" was an outstanding success, scores again in an even more exciting man-and-woman hunt. Linda Dar- .,,t, titV ho u thrown in Hail fnr thirtv' nell delivers a tremendously en- ronica Lake also reveals her more serious side as the lovely nurse who falls In love with Phelan.

This is the film version of a best-seller by Augusta Tucker and stars Sonny Tufts, Veronica Lake and Joan Caulfield. a newcomer to the screen. I It also brings a popular veteran actress back to the screen. Lillian Gish plays the proprietress of a boarding house for young medical 'students and "Miss Susie Slagle's" is the story of these students their trials and tribulations, their hopes and fears and loves. "Miss Susie Slagle's" has a vast array of bright new faces. One of the brightest of these is Joan Caul- i field who had the good fortune to become a star in her very first i picture. Miss Caulfield is a grace ful blonde with an unusually en gaging personality, hne is me original "Kiss And Tell" girl of George Abbott's popular Broadway hit. In "Miss Susie Slagle's" Joan plays the part of a young charmer who falls in love and employs all her feminine wiles to hook the man of her heart, portrayed by Sonny Tufts. Sonny Tufts has his first dramatic role as the doctor who is overwhelmed by the fear of seeing death. Sonny s portrayal is certainly a convincing one and should lead to more dramatic parts.
