'Confessions of a Nazi Spy," the sensational Warner Bros, picture coming Thursday and Friday to the Grand Theatre, represents a complete reversal of Hollywood precedent in more ways than one. In the first place, the motion picture producers in the past have avoided controversial subjects like the plague. But Warners could hardly have chosen a subject packed with mere potential dynamite than the spy picture. Then, contrary to all precedent, they literally filmed the picture behind locked doors. No one not directly concerned with the production was allowed on the set This rule was rigidly adhered to, with no exceptions made for executives of the company or members of the press. Only ten instead of the usual 150 scripts for "Confessions of a Nazi Spy" were mimeographed, however. These were given to six of the principals, the director, supervisor and two trusted departmental heads. The rest of the players got only one day's lines at a time. Thus, they didn't know the complete story until the picture was completed. V.R. JUNIOR-SENIOR BANQUET IS COLORFUL AFFAIR MISSIONARY FROM INDIA TO SPEAK AT C. OF C. LUNCH Rev. J. M.
