Robert Eagan AS 19 years old turned in by veterans Maiden and Wallach, but it is newcomer Carroll Baker who bears watching. As the voluptuous, dumb blond who "had trouble with long division and never got past the fourth grade" she's excellent. Sex implications in Baby Doll could be objectionable to some viewers, but the degradation of the South as depicted In 'Vrl and i hA nof reay was named secretary of the Sertoma Club yesterday at the club's weekly luncheon meet ing at Ronnie's Restaurant. i i ill It was also announced a blood unit will be on hand -w-v III At The Astor soon at one of the Wednesday meetings to get donors for a directed by Elia Kazan, the picture tells of a Coke-sipping Southern girl, Baby Doll Meig-han Carroll Baker, the unlettered, childlike wife-in-name-only of balding Archie Lee Meighan Karl Maiden, a middle-aged owner of a beat-up cotton gin. At 18, when she wasn't "ready for marriage," Baby Doll marries loud-mouthed Archie Lee with the agreement that she won't be "ready for marriage" until she reaches 20.

FRUSTRATED by the cold-ness of his wife-in-name-only and put out of business by the competition of an interstate cotton gin syndicate, Archie goes berserk one night and burns down the syndicate gin. The remainder of the film describes how the syndicate's manager Eli Wallach gets his revenge by seducing Baby Doll and persuading her to give evidence that it was Archie who set the fire.

CONDEMNED as "immoral" by the Catholic Legion of Decency and denounced by Francis Cardinal Spellman as "revolting," "deplorable" and "morally repellent," Baby Doll is a sordid, rather depressing and in a measure distasteful story of "trash" in the Deep South.

At the same time it is very well done, and the bix sex angle which has been greatly ballyhooed seems grossly overplayed as a box office attraction and fails to Impart corruptive stimulus to spectators.

The film attempts to tackle the weighty problem of capital punishment vs.

no capital punishment and, for the first hour and 15 minutes, it looks like they have a good case In favor of the latter. THE ACTION is fast-paced, the cast is excellent with Miss Fontaine as lovely to look at as always, there is enough sus-pense to satisfy the most avid who-done-it fan and the plot has enough meat to provoke some serious thought. However, Hollywood spoils the meat in the surprise climax which none would ever guess and which tends to tear down the case they have worked so hard to prove. But the film is worth while If only to see the kind of man who would blaze his own trail to the electric chair. 1 SPORTY HOLES asisNs riss W.kdy S2.00 Sat Sun.
