Their mad ad By KASPAR MONAHAN The "Ghost" is riding the waves again and the Sea Wolf stalks its heaving deck this time in the person of Edward G. Robinson, who is a better Wolf Larsen than his predecessors, Hobart Bosworth and Milton Sills. The wild, blood-curdling melodrama with intellectual overtones has been given every advantage in this 1941 vcr- ventures are told in "The Road Penn. . There's nothing serious about the whole journey and if sion m the matter of topf light cast, director and production but, somehow, there isn't the thrill and . dread and suspense to it all there once was, not for me at any rate. Maybe that's because in the last two decades the cine-matic seas have been cluttered with hell ships captained by skippers of the belaying-pin type and manned by Mr. Monihui the dirtiest, most hruul ewxes Hollywood's casting director? can hire so that now. even "So "Wolf seems to sail Umcc-Um-iliar seas, dramatically .spcakirsf. aft tit 30 There's a lurid, unreal sir a tv.it Sea Wolf, now t the Stanley.

Furthermore there are some preposterous phases to "Sea Wolf", for one. the ceaseless scouring of the seas by "Death" Larson (Death wotta monicker for the comic-strip villains!) who has a cannon mounted on his ship for the sole purpose of blowing Brother Wolf and his evil crew to Kingdom Come! Wolf, jackallike, dogs and skulks along the trail of his brother's ship to rob him of his cargo. However, Mr. Robinson is an actor of such skill that he manages almost to make this character believable or, if not believable, at least interesting.

Horde of Vacationists With Much Mazuma to Converge on Manhattan By TOM WOLF Special to The Pittsburgh Press Hollywood Finally Captures The Stubborn Sergeant York World War Hero, Who Had Turned Down Numerous Offers, Agrees to Film Biography Night Boom Spots From mer in New York entertainment," says Mr. Proser, one of the keenest air-sniffers in the pack. "We all know that there is a iot of defense money being spent. "I don't mean- only steel and air craft. I mean everywhere. Why, our waiters have to wait to get their white summer uniforms be cause the manufacturer is swamped with navy business. "Lots of people are making more than they ever made in their lives. It's natural that they're going to take a vacation this summer and spend some of that money. They're gomg to want a gay time after working at such high speed all winter and spring. And a gay time is just what we're going to give them." Mr. Proser's reasoning is shared by his colleagues. Like most of them he frankly admits that, to date, very little discernible defense money has dropped into his two New York clubs. Boom Is On But the night club owners are looking at the straws in the wind. They see that the out-of-town business is already beginning to spend more money. The bars, restaurants and supper clubs in hotels are doing about 6 per cent more business this spring man last. Night clubs catering largely to the out-of-town crowd show signs of life. Outstanding ex ample is Billy Rose's Diamond Horseshoe, where money is being Finds Being: Zany I Well Worth While Special to The Pittsburgh Press HOLLYWOOD Allen Jenkins has come to the conclusion that he is a nit-wit, but he doesn't mind, so long as he's paid for it. "In 'Time Out for Rhythm,' I'm not especially bright," he admitted. "Off-Beat, that's the character I play, is nice enough, but a bit flip- dizzy. However, if that's my metier, that's it." Considering that Jenkins has been active in pictures for nine years, making an average of five pictures annually over that period, he can afford to act as much of a zany as he chooses. Lundigan Haunts All Nan's Debuts Special to The Pittsburgh Press HOLLYWOOD Who says light ning doesn't strike twice in the same place? When Nan Wynn, new singing star, made her radio debut on WNEW in New York City, the program announcer was a young man named William Lundigan. Four years later, when Nan made her screen debut in "A Shot in the Dark," the young man playing opposite her was the same Bill Lundigan. "You were scared to death that first time," Bill recalled. "I still am," Nan confessed.

On his ship he is kins, a law unto himself; on land he's just another nobody as the novelist chap tells him. The novelist also tells Wolf many other things analyses Wolf, turns him inside out psychologically. This flatters Wolf's ego and his vanity is tickled when the novelist tells him ho is going to write- a book about him. Wolf in turn docs a bit of dissection on the mental and spiritual make-up of the writer, insists that his cSvthxed code will crumple and that he will through contract wit-h evil men become like them ere the "Ghost w has finished with its grisly prowling of the sea in search cf loot. This clash of wills provides a "mental duel" that lifts "Sea Wolf" above the ordinary thumping melodrama of the seas. The virtually unknown Alexander Knox plays the novelist with fine understanding, and there is noteworthy work by John Garfield as the sullen, hunted jail-bird; Gene Lockhart as the pathetic, drunken ship's doctor; Barry Fitzgerald as "Cooky," the detestable, cunning "informer", and Ida Lupino, the bedraggled woman of the honky-tonks who is fished out of the sea while fleeing the law and forced to become an unwilling passenger on the schooner. Director Michael Curtiz has provided his characters with an effective atmosphere mists and mystery, the sounds of creaking masts and rustling sails, the wash and sweep of the hungry sea, waiting to swallow the accursed ship and its sinister master which it does quite appropriately in the end. "Ohioan" is docked at the pier men were agreeably voluble with recent anecdotes, but when asked about the period when York -was some thing of a heller, before he joined a church, the hillsmen stared stonily and said only, "The Sergeant, he were a good man." The Sergeant, now 53, is a power for good in his community, responsible for good roads, rural education and the founding of an agricultural college that has 300 students. The money he receives from Warner Brothers will endow the Bible school he long has planned. Organ Recital Assisted by Peabody High School A Cappella Choir led by Florence L.

"I broke a leg and I thought they were going to shoot me, back there on Broadway " he said. "'So I ran away to Hollywood which is the best old actor's home in the world." Errol is working now in R-K-O's farce, "Hurry, Charlie, Hurry." "It's really a fact, you know, about that broken leg," he said. "It happened when I was playing "Louis XIV. An accident on the stage had me laid up in the hospital for some time. "When I came out and the doctor told me that I wouldn't be able do that old rubber-legs act of mine for some time, I discovered that the theater didn't want me.

Bing and Bob are a couple of pals from Birch Falls who are trying to earn a few dollars, honestly if possible and if not anyway they can, so they may leave the Dark Continent and return to America. In the set-up Crosby is the big idea man and Hope is the victim of the ideas. The picture opens with the boys going "great guns" or rather "great cannons" in a carni val with which they are barnstorm-j ing through Africa. Bing does the barker's chores while Bob is supposed to be shot out of a cannon through a ring of flame. This little venture ends suddenly when the flames burn down the carnival and the boys take it on the lam with the law in close pursuit. There are more ideas for making money, most of which bring injury or discomfort to Mr. Hope but when love catches up with the boys the income is forgotten and the outgo starts. The sly boys of the carnival are " outwitted by a couple of stranded lasses from vaudeville who get the lads to finance a trek through the African jungles to the "deathbed" of one girl's father. Learning that they had been gyped when they get to the middle of the jungle is not much help because it only leads to more troubles, not the least of which is an encounter with a savage tribe of man-eaters. That's the gamut run by the picture from carnival to carnivorous. All these intrepid adventurers who have been so heroic in previous thrillers about the African jungles now will have very red faces be cause Bing and Bob mix up with leopards, elephants, savages or what-have-you as they hunt for laughs and find lots of them. The Crosby-Hope "Road" company provides plenty of fun even though they do belittle the gargantuan feats of their more serious colleagues. Dorothy Lamour, Una Merkel, Eric Blore, Joan Marsh and Luis Alberni all get billing in the picture but Bing and Bob are the "whole show." Lunches With Dotty HOLLYWOOD Patti McCarty, who used to be Dorothy Lamour's secretary and is now an actress her self , has a weekly luncheon date with her former employer which she will not break for anyone.

As many a night club proprietor has remarked: "So far the men who have gotten their hands on defense dollars have been working 16 and 18 hours a day. They just aren't doing anything . but work." As a result, most of what extra business seen so far has been on weekends. As one of the more colorful local observers put it: "You couldn't jam a sardine in that place on Saturday night, but any other night of the week you could shoot deer there." New York is making a concerted effort to attract vacationists this summer. The Broadway Association, for example, has just started an ex tensive, nation-wide campaign to "Make New York Your Vacation City." With no World's Fair to interfere with Manhattan business, night club operators hope to cash in on a greater percentage of visitors than they did during the Fair. Many a man who every summer has shuttered his grog shop until vacationing New Yorkers return to town has taken a new stand this year. His slogan: "The curfew shall not ring this summer."

The impresarios of Manhattan's numberless night clubs, who can smell a pleasure-bent sawbuck all the way from Omaha, are sniffing the pre -summer air like a pack of I beagles and wagging their tails with joy. They smell cold, defense-born cash. And, like good Samaritans, they're planning to provide the hearths on which these shivering ten spots can singe themselves to a crisp. That, not the sun, is why Manhattan is going to simmer this summer. Want Gay Time Even Madison Square Garden, once the bulwark of the many arts, will fall before the pleasure seekers mechanized onslaught. For 100 days and 100 nights it will exchange the sharp slap of fighting leather for the subtle swirl of dancing organdy as Monte Proser converts it into a mammoth summer dance hall and beer garden. Decorated with a 110-foot waterfall and giant palmettos, the Garden hopes to draw 10,500 lovers of rhythm at a 66-cent top every night. "It's going to be a banner sum- Sophisticate 'School For Husbands," now in its fifth week, along with "Virgin Bride," at the Art Cinema, features June Clyde, pictured here, with the popular Britisher, Rex Harrison.

The band plays "Dixie" and police clear the way for a delegation of silk hats that steps from a bunting-draped touring car. One of the group is Congressman Cor nell Hull of Tennessee and even without makeup. Actor Charles Trowbridge shows a startling resemblance to the Secretary of State. After 22 Years Standing on the sidelines, taking In every detail and beaming behind his glasses, is a ruddly little man Jesse Lasky, associate producer of 'Sergeant York." He has waited 22 years for this moment. He talks about it with pardonable pride because it was his persistence not movie money that finally made the scene, and the whole picture, possible. "That's a long time to wait for anything, isn't it?" he asks. "I've been trying to get this on film ever since I saw it happen. May 22, 1919. I was vice president of Famous Players-Lasky then, with offices in New York, and I stood at my win-dom, on Fifth Ave., and watched the parade go by. I knew then that I had a great motion picture if I could get it. T told one of my men to see Sergeant York and sign him up; money was no object, to go as high as he needed. That night I saw Florenz Ziegfeld and he said he was going to put York in an act with Will Rogers. Later, Lee Shubert told me he was after York, but none of us got him. My man came back and said he had talked to the Sergeant. He had listened silently, then said, 'Uncle Sam's uniform, bit ain't fer sale.' That was his sole and final statement.
