Constitutionally opposed to any form of work, Young and Fairbanks speculate seriously on the motives of the men who are work' ing with pick, shovel and wheelbarrow far below them . . .

Or Gable's scene with Landlady Marjorie Mains. , "Robin Hoot" the color was so superb that you could choose any scene at random and come pretty close to scoring . . . Standout from the point of color, however, seemed to this reporter to be the scene in Sherwood Forest, when the King's men-at-arms drove their horses through the stream at a gallop ... The steel foam of splashing water, the detail of horses and . riders and the shadow-laced glade were breath-taking. Mickey Rooney's "man-to-man" talk with Lewis Stone in "Love Finds Andy Hardy," when he tells his father he likes girls, and asks him if he's normal . . . Along the same lines, Jackie Moran's scene with Herbert Marshall in "Mad About Music" ... Or Deanna DurbhVs scene at the boarding school, when Marshall gets up to address the school, and Deanna, fearing that he is about to puncture her story, closes her eyes and crosses her fingers. "The Citadel," the unusual love scene which King Vidor Worked out for Robert Donat's proposal to Rosalind Russell ... He was standing at the fence abashedly ; she was in a second-mtory window of her boarding house when he yelled his proposal tip to her, and she accepted. In "Nothing Sacred," when the Madison Square Garden wrestlers in response to the plea for 10 seconds of siler.t prayer for Carole Lombard, "freeze" in motion, and then resume wrestling from their frozen positions immediately the timekeeper has banged the bell for the tenth time. The wrestling scene, too, in "Hold That Co-Ed" ( one of the best college comedies ever made in this town incidentally) , when Marjorie Weaver and the wrestlers close a deal to play college football . . . One wrestler throws the other through the ropes and he lands at her feet, where she submits the deal . . . The wrestler returns to the ring, informs his opponent of the proposition while they're in a clinch ... "Okay," says wrestler No. 2 "' throw you out to her again and you can close the deal." mm- He does. Other studios reported that any requests for a tour for her would not be honored. Phil Selznick, owner of a popular night club, said he had, refused reservations for a party of 12 when he learned that Miss Riefenstahl was to be guest of honor. The Anti-Nazi League, whose denunciation of Vittorio Mussolini, son of n Duce, during a visit two years ago resulted in his being picketed, led the attacks on Miss Riefenstahl. . . . , ANTIPATER, of Palestine, is tion of . the "Seven Wonders of th American PnntS SrlOWn thought to have made the selec- World" about 200 B.

XmS "Deluxe" Informality The lives of those backstage at the Metropolitan Opera House are not as tensely social as the lives of those spectacular spectators who occupy the Diamond Horseshoe. Opera singers, for the most part, abhor plush places and elaborate ceremony and places where they are well known to lay patrons. We know a little rickety eating place in the Fifties, where the table d'hote dinners reach their peak at 65 cents, and which receives its chief patronage from the great names or the Met. Its proprietor is an ever-smiling, shy little Neapolitan, Joe Re-mono. He is an ubiquitous restaurateur, presiding over the dining room and kitchen with but little assistance. He prepares, to our notion, the best bowl of spaghetti in town, and in this estimate we are suDDorted bv the best vocalities of the Opera House. His furniture is plain and ancient, and his decorations consist of no more than hundreds of autographed pictures, tightly nressed against each other on the walls. Such an atmosphere naturally breeds informality, and since most of the customers are singers and well acquainted with each other, there is no gaping, such as you are bound to see at most celebrity- hunters' salons. i We always wondered how operatic stars attend to keeping their corporate holdings around the midriff down until we ran into a new member at the gym we visit with less frequency than we should. The new member is Lauritx Melchoir, who, in sheer body construction, is a Man Mountain, and who is one of the greatest opera singers of the generation. Now Mr. Melchoir's capacity for fine dining and wining is - well known; next to singing, it is said to be the chief passion of of his life. Then Melchoir's avoirdupois caught up with him and next we knew, he had applied for membership in our gym. ' Nowadays children get their thrills in reverse. David and Armand, twin sons, aged 11; Renee, 10, and Heidi-Ann, 6, all children of Armand Denis and Leila Roosevelt, the explorers, are home from an 11.000-mile airplane trip about the United States. They have nothing exciting to report but a short journey on a railroad train! The children flew with their parents on a good-will tour of 30 American cities alone with the motion picture, "Dark Rapture." which the senior Denises filmed in the Belgian Congo. So the air-minded junior Denises brought along their pets, white mice, flying squirrels and pink snakes, and a movie camera to keep from getting bored on the lone flicht. And they almost were bored, save for an incident that saved Ch triD from beine a total loss for them. At Omaha their plane was forced down by bad weather. The family made the short jump to Des Moines by train. Wildly excited by this novel mode of transportation, the Denis kids wanted to find out what made the enjine co ride with the engineer, shovel coal and blow the whistle. And they came home as entnused fans of the railroad. Now they are looking forward to a horse and buggy ride, prom Ued them by the village doctor near their home at Putnam, Conn.1 Here's another thing that happened to Wynn Murray, the ' happy, fat girl of "Boys From Syracuse." Wynn plays a clarinet solo in that great musical, and the other day a chap ashed if she is a member of the Musicians' Union. Wynn laughed and said no. "It's no joke," said this chap, who insisted she would have to join. ' Well, the upshot is that Wynn now is a member of the union. " She's just paid an initiation fee of $SO. Incidentally, a guard has been set near this girl to see that she doesn't resume her reducing ' diet. They need all the avoirdupois she now tips the scale at for t thi 'how. j since we"re catching up on Samgoldwynisms, we ought to toss this one in too At a conference with his help a couple of weeks ago Mr. k chiding a studio head about a tactical error in a film produc-2f" .v.rHv. took his bawling out and then charged Sam with ilu"v.
