THE OBSERVER, SUNDAY, APRIL 16, 1950 At the Theatre At the Films 6 Radio Music A Winning Western By C. A. LEJEUNE Crazy Pavement By IVOR BROWN Dialectic By W. E.

Even apart from the yellow ribbon, the colour, although occasionally bloodshot, is frequently significant, and gives us so thick that 1 frequently dropped many seconds behind in identifying some vital phrase in the text. Once, the attention becomes distracted that he doesn't really love pictures, and is as false in his general assumption as he is faulty in the particular. This new John Ford work is a splendid example of the sort of thing the cinema has always done best; in this way a chain-reaction of frustration develops. One begins, unreasonably perhaps, to magnify the difficulty of following the "dialect," and ends bv wishing that mi something, moreover, that only the magnificent cloud effects over tawny rock -chimneys, distant blue ranges. the varieties of English regional milky green rivers, and lightning snaking down venomously from a jagged sky.

Here, perhaps, is a minor held of investigation for Listener Hankerings By ERIC BLOM TITUSICAL life in London is not what it was. In some ways we have cause to be grateful. The penance of the ballad concerts has been abolished, for instance, and in some directions standards of homemade performance have improved. But there is now a lamentable lack of enterprise in programme-making. We are browbeaten by a pretence, at once high-handed and lazy, that certain necessities have made economically impracticable what is still conceded in theory to be artistically desirable. One must agree that concerts which do not pay cannot continue indefinitely, but is sometimes tempted to go to the logical conclusion of saying that if thev cease to interest musicians they may as well stop. 1 am not now asking for novelties. We still hear a good many at concerts, particularly in the domain of chamber music and at B.B.C. performances held in public. What I do ask for at the moment are just masterpieces which have somehow failed recently to come to our table and a poor man's table it is, in all conscience. Examples need hardly be given, but here goes, so far as space will stretch, and list of desiderata should be Imagined as extending inimitably beyond that. I cannot think when I have last heard Mozart's A major string Quartet (K. 464), which I am often tempted to think the finest of them all. Even at the South Place concerts (now at Conway Hall), where you may hear admirable chamber music for a shilling Sunday after Sunday, this had only its fourth performance last November in a period of over The Academy Award picture. All the King's Men (Gaumont and Marble Arch Pavilion), is a very interesting work indeed.

Still. I rank Sundstrom won through to win a compassionate welcome. His acting has a likeable force and sincerity he might be excellent in a comprehensible role in a comprehensible play instead of having to be a tog-wanderer in a swamp of unspecified fears. This kind of turmoil gives the cast few chances, hut the fine voice of Allan Jeayes was heard to advantage. hope that Mr. Sundstrom can try again and with matter better chosen. At the Embassy, Irwin Shaw's Brooklyn waterfront The Gentle People, recently televised, repeats its moral that Little Men should stand up to Big Shots appeasement never pays. It moves, surely but slowly, amid the serene Jewish philosophy of Meier Tzel-niker, the whipcrack brutality of Robert Ayres. and the dark glamour of Hilda Simms. Water, water everywhere When we are not on the jetty we are in a Turkish Bath, hose sweaty humours lard the text with moist relief. film demands the western; for only by getting out-of-doors once in a while, and stretching muscles cramped by drawing-room drama, can it keep its health. someone should have understood him so ill as to shoot him.

The tjl-lantry of Kildine Productions Inc and of Mr Sundstrom in pouring so much monev and elfort into a pla which to the average man will seem onl a morbid muddle cannot be questioned. But the sense of it In wishing to have seen both capilal and labour better employed. I fancv I represent the feeling of the first night meeting. "The Trial is an English translation, by Jacqueline and Frank Sundstrom, of a French adaptation, by Andre" Gide and Jean-Louis Barrault, of Kafka's book of that title- How man chefs of distinction and what a broth! Fven an explanatory note on the programme is so badly written as to add to the bewilderment. If our poets of today are obscure, Kafka and his titivators can knock them for at that game. The central figure is a Bank Manager called who is charged before an unspecified court on unspecified charges and has to justify himself in some unspecitied way. Then we are told by the programme expositor, refuses to recognise the possibility of a personal guilt towards something supernatural, and he succumbs to his life's crisis. He is aware that the High Judge lies inaccessibly above man's knowledge of the machinery of Justice, but he is unable to free him from the ordinary impulses of finite life and accepts death at the hands of two dumb men. Sort that out for yourselves. The High Judge, incidentally, is presented like Beachcomber's Mr. Justice Cocklecarrot and might be God perhaps the latter, since Mr. T. S. Eliot's famous Cocktail Party has now been discovered in New York to signify the Last Supper. Curiously, this bit of modernis-mus seemed very old-world. This kind of play was done much better thirty years ago when Georg Kaiser wrote From Morn to Midnight," which also was about the crazy pavement trodden by a bank- Glass-fronted Solid Oak Cast 47 i ft 1 1 (no Purchase Tax).

(TEM 0523) MBRBRBna She Wore a Yellow Ribbon (London Pavilion), out of Stage Coach by Fort Apache," is one of the most rousing films 1 have seen for years. It is also not without subtlety. At first glance this story of a grizzled cavalry officer (John Wayne), who leads his men on a hazardous patrol within a few days of his retirement, would seem to be a straightforward affair of troopers and Indians. But all manner of old adventures are quietly touched on ot Crime fassionel (with clearly-hinted parallels from contemporary history), is so well managed by Broderick Crawford and the director, Robert Rossen. and the whole film is so firm in its grip and impressive in individual scenes, that I could not help wondering why it didn't stir me more. I came to the conclusion that what is missing from All the King's Men is first, space to account for the hero's sudden change from a reasonably honest man to a client of the devil, and second, heart. It is sometimes brilliant, almost always authoritative, but deadly cold. Only one character, a pock-marked secretary- Children's Portraits An Invitation To Artists HERE are to-day many artists in Britain well qualified to undertake child portraiture, and many people, we believe, who would like to commission portraits ol their children if it were made easy for Ihem to do so. Tttt Obskrvlr intends to make an attempl to bridge this gap. A series of articles will be published next month on contemporary portraiture, illustrated with portraits ol children done various mediums, including small-scale sculpture. We request artists to supply the details stated below, so that, in addition to reproductions, lists may accompany these articles for the guidance of readers. An exhibition of works will be held at the R.W.S. Galleries, 26, Conduit-street, for a fortnight in June, and an announcement will be made here later giving details for submission. Meanwhile, artists in all parts of Britain are invited to send before the end of the month the following addressed to Portraits," The Observfr, 22, Tudor-street, London, E.C.4. A note stating the artist's full name, address and telephone number, and an indication of the category or to which his or her work belongs. One or more clear photographic prints, suitable for reproduction, of recent paintings, drawings or other works of child portraiture should be enclosed. A scale of prices is, of course, no indication of artistic merit, and categories are required only for readers' guidance.

We Work In Steel was disfigured, in its opening passages, by another kind of naturalism. A conversation between several workmen was enacted in the canteen of a club and against the background noises of beer-mugs, laughter, small-talk and billiard-balls, the effort, at our end, to follow the front-stage reflections upon the Steel Industry was further handicapped. A set-up that sounds effective in the studio can suffer distortion in transmission to our parlours, and if producers would only keep their eyes shut at their work they might avoid many of these infidelities to their terms of reference. I can remember no richer reward of the spoken word than the verse sequence of Easter in Europe," written by W. R. Rodgers and spoken by Stephen Murray, Robert Eddison and Cyril Cusack. There seem to me intimations, already, that some of our poets are responding to a medium which may offer them a oreative scope (and, perhaps, a living as well) no longer attainable on the printed page. Much of the music of Easter in as the picture unfolds. It is possible that British audiences may not catch all the allusions to the aftermath of the Civil War, and the beautiful scene in which a hard-bitten army wife sews a red-flannel petticoat into a flag for the grave of a trooper who was once a Confederate general may go awry. Nevertheless through all the thundering gallop of cum mistress, played magnificently by Mbrcedes McCain-bridge, is allowed to give out a little genuine warmth.

The two Brahms siring quintets are almost forgotten nowadays, and 1 could bear with any amount of equanimity to hear Beethoven's in major, or for that matter his clarinet Trio. Neither is among his greatest works, but the urbane, be-slippered Beethoven they represent is in his way as characteristic and in certain moods as lovable as the tragic, the grim, the passionate, or the philosophical Beethoven. Chamber music is not as badly starved as orchestral in London to-day in the matter of variety; still, when has one of Mendelssohn's string quartets last been heard here? One does not hanker after them continually as the best chamber music, but more than one is among the best Mendelssohn, the action, the hard YTE cannot afford to gibe at Eden Phillpotts. In his eighty-eighth year the Master of the Moor can still construct a comedy i that puts to the blush many of our chatter dramatists The Orange (New Lindsey) is unpretentious Devon drollery by a playwright who does not regard a plot as a burden, and who still thinks, per-, versely, that dialogue should have some body and flavour.
