Look for "Rip Kirby" today . . . ond every day on the Comic Pages of The Philadelphia Inquirer. Before Voua Aye PAOMCTTI RAVIOLI TAl IAN Br roos CMOir a VWINC HQjoas 1101 s. 9th St. Cor. Wathinqton Avi, FINE .FOOD ovens. As drama, with its hate-love pattern, its blend of highflown and lowdown dialogue, "Gilda" comes very close to being ridiculous. SEX appeal rampant But as a showcase for Miss Hay-worth's siren talents, it's an uninhibited wolf call in celluloid. Not since the archaic days of Theda Bara and her brazen ilk has sex appeal been set forth in so rampant a fashion on the screen. Sultry, hip - swinging, shoulder - tossing Gilda is quite a girl as she drives her husband and her erstwhile boy friend, now the husband's henchman in his gambling joint, to distraction down Argentina way. Honey and insults fall from Gilda's pretty lips with equal ease. She goes for swims at five in the morning, picks up men in the casino. She sings a couple of songs "Put the Blame on Mame, Boys," as she starts a strip-tease, and "Amado Mio," a sulry romantic number. A woman of presumably no reputation, she has a trick of suddenly going wistful and pure to the astonishment of everybody concerned, including the audience. And, when the plot permits a new deal and Gilda finds herself married to the lad she's been needling for almost two film hours, she plaintively re marks to no one in particular, "You wouldn't think one woman could marry two insane men in one life time, now would you?" BETTER THAN MATERIAL The answer is no! But you wouldn't think there coUld be a pic ture quite so peculiar as "Gilda" either. There are other verbal gems in the Marion Parsonnet screenplay and Joe Eisinger adaptation of a story by K. A. Ellington. For ex ample, Glenn Ford's extremely cross young man informs Gilda and her then-husband, George Macready, that "statistics show there are more women in the world than anything else except insects." Besides the torrid and tortured triangle, the yarn gets around to a vague tungsten monopoly in which Macready is involved, some murderous business with a couple of Nazi agents and a plethora of cryptic talk about Macready's "little friend," a sword cane which gets considerable attention. Under Charles Vfdor's direction. Ford, making his first appearance since coming out of the service, is far better than his material. Mac-ready plays the distracted monopolist as though he had been seeing too many Dracula pictures, while Steve Garay and Joseph Calleia wander through the murky goings on as philosophical washroom attendant and Buenos Aires police official, respectively. KAve Wires' At Capitol First the "Head End" Kids, then the -'East Side" Kids, now Leo Gor-cey and his pals are called the "Bowery Boys" under Monogram's wing. The first of a threatened series, entitled "Live Wires," opened at the Capitol yesterday. It is the usual melange of fisticuffs and tough wisecracks, with Leo losing one job after another because he acts with his fists first and does the thinking, if any, later. But toward the end of the picture things get amusing when Leo. as a process-server, enters the lair of Mike Mazurki, a goliath who handles him and Huntz Hall as if they were duckpins. Pamela Blake enacts Leo's sister; Bobby Jordan, William Benedict and William Frambes are the other "Bowery Boys"; Patti Brill is Leo's girl; and John Eldredge,' Robert E. Keane and Claudia Drake have "grown-up" roles. SAMUEL L. SINGER Fred Asfaire Says He's Quitting Films NEWARK, N. J., April 3 (UP). Fred Astaire, passing through Newark Airport on a trip from Hollywood to Florida, said flatly today that he had made his last motion picture.

Scala Singers Give "Boheme1 By Samuel L Singer The "Sold Out" sign was up for the Philadelphia La Scala Opera performance of "La Boheme" at the Academy of Music last night. The performance was ' given exactly 50 years, two months and two days after its world premiere in Turin, with Toscanini conducting. Last night's conductor was the able Giuseppe Bamboschek, whose zeal for the beauties of Puccini's score sometimes allowed the orchestra to drown out the singers. HORSEPLAY INHIBITED The performance was something more than competent, but did not always equal previous Scala presentations of "Boheme." The horseplay of the four Bohemians in the first act was rather inhibited. There were other details of staging and singing, such as an occasional ragged ensemble, which detracted from the general effect, although individual characterizations were on the-whole effective. Norina Greco, portraying Mimi here for the first time, was appealing as the tubercular seamstress, and sang with much feeling and ample volume. The duets with Rudolph were done well, except when she overshadowed the tenor, and the Death Scene was most affecting. MARTINI IN FINE FETTLE Nino Martini, a familiar Rudolph here, was in fine fettle; he outdid himself vocally and limbered up somewhat on the dramatic side. Louisa Mara, also a newcomer lo cally in her role, enacted the tempestuous Musetta with gusto, and her singing matched her acting in ex cellence. George O.aplickl did well as Marcel, especially in the third-act quarrel with Musetta, and Nino Ruisi once more contributed a sonorous "Farewell to the Coat" as Colline. Wilfred Engelman completed the Bohemian quartet as Schaunard. 3 Young Artists In Joint Recital The second of three concerts presenting "Young Artists in Joint Recital," at the Art Alliance last night, featured Hilda Rainer, soprano, and Alvin Rudnltsky violinist, with Joseph Levine, pianist. Mr. Rudnitsky and Mr. Levine, both of whom were discharged from the Army just three weeks ago, collaborated well in Beethoven's "Kreutzer" Sonata, and the violinist later played a solo group of works by Sarasate, Chopin and Wieniaw-ski. Miss Rainer was heard in Russian, German, French and American groups of songs. Her voice had ample volume, sometimes sharply so.
