THE MANCHESTER GUARDIAN, SATURDAY, JANUARY 28, 1950 NEW FILMS IN LONDON Rossellini's "The Miracle" From our London Film Critic When the censor, rightly or wrongly, objects to a film and when that film comes to be shown in London by the London County Council's permission one certain consequence is that it comes with a distended and distorted reputation. So it is with Rossellini's "The Miracle" (at the Academy), a brief piece forty minutes long in which we are told how a poor, half-demented peasant woman of Southern Italy mistook a passing bearded vagabond for St. Joseph (her patron saint) and therefore believed that her child due to be born nine months after that encounter would be a miraculous gift from Heaven. I; is unlikely that the film was meant as a jeer either at, the simple faith oi Italian peasants in particular or at " faith" in genera': its tone is not satirical or cynical ; rather might it be described as " off tragic." On the other hand, some pec pie 1-ave somewhat oddly hailed it as "a monument to faith" as though Ros-sellini were in effect saving that though his story was of a poor demented woman, of the illusion to which she clung and of the indignities which her neighbours heaped upon her, yet if hers had been a real miracle the circumstances might well have seemed much like that and she might have suffered much the same treatment. But if that was Rossellini's aim, then again he has shot wide -jr ai least he has overcomplicated and confused his message. What is more probable is that in the first place he was trying to find a " vehicle " for that fine actress Anna Magnani the film is, in fact, " dedicated to her art" and consists almost entirely of her solo performance and that the slory, the message, and the rest of it were secondary considerations. In the event he certainly luund a formidable vehicle for her : however much one might admire her virtuosity and the incidental loveliness and harshness of the village and country scenes which are the constant wonders of almost all modern Italian films, one could not but wish lhat the chosen "vehicle" had been rather less uncomfortable. H this film is at all shocking it is nut because of its religious implications, but simplv because it is so prolonged an exhibition of physical distress. "Intruder in the Dust" (at the Ritz. Leicester Square) is the fourth film, no lets, on the Negro problem which has come from the United States in the last three months. It is also on the whole -much the best of the four: as a Job of film-craft it may be less trim than " Pinky," but its more than sufficient compensation! are its grimly evocative powers and itj sense of atmosphere. The director, Clarence Brown, with the considerable assistance of William Faulkner's novel, has made a document not so much about the Negroes as about the white people in the Southern United States. The story is about a small Southern town, a Negro who was all but lynched there, and the justice that was done by a handful of people against all the might and force of local prejudice. The hero of the piece may be the old, proud, obstinate Negro ( Juano Hernandez), but the much more heroic heroine is an old lady of eighty (magnificently played by Elizabeth Patterson) who takes a leading part in saving him. The story itself is an exciting " who-dunit," marred a little by a weak point or two in its argument and by some of lhat pretentiously flat. " dead-pan " kind of conversation in which Faulkner, like Hemingway, has specialised. Bui its great effectiveness lies less in its story than in, for instance, the picture it presents of the crowds gathering outside the gaol waiting for the dreadful, murderous show. The horror of this crowd is in its very casual ness, its almost festive air : these people have come to see a Negro murdered as though that were quite an ordinary holiday event. It is the achievement of Clarence Brown that he has made this seem to be the true picture of such a Southern occasion. Robert Montgomery, in making "Your Witness" (at the Warner), a film of which he is the star as well as the director, evidently intended it as a nice Anglo-American gesture of co-operation. The film was made in Britain : it tells a tale of British justice and of the help given to that justice by American intervention, and it is full of the gentler sort of English village ouaintness. One fears, though, that the stiff-necked British are more likely to be affronted fcv Mr. Montgomery's misadventures in British laws and manners than to be pleased by the intended compliment. Nevertheless this is a more than usually tactful journev through perilous Anglo-American territory.

Yesterday morning a large gap was found in the bird's cage fifteen feet from the ground. To reach the cage an intruder would have had to climb a wall 10ft. high and then the aviary roof. Two months ago a West African goshawk and a Brazilian carrion hawk disappeared from the same aviary. " The disappearance of these birds," a Zoo official said, " may have been the action of some person who objects to birds being caged. British peregrine falcons ate difficult to get as most of them are protected and have to be aviary bred. The falcon would be a convenient bird to take because it was (rained and could probably be sold." 5LP a. cr, oude Marriage apart, buying a house is for many, the most important step of their lives It is well then for those who contemplate this step to consider with care, not only the house they have in mind to buy, but the means by which they propose to buy it.

Mr. Bernard Shore, presented awards to students of the , Northern School of Music in the Houlds- , worth Hall. Manchester. In his address i he dwelt on the importance of cultivating personality in musical art. and on the ;' virtue of hard work and of high, ideals alike in the executive and the teaching branches of the musical profession. Mrs. Mildred Moon. J.P.. presided and Miss Hilda Collens. principal of the school, spoke encouragingly of the widening scope of its work. In the short musical programme which followed Sheila Midtllebrooke evoked with true interpretative art the caprice of John Iceland's " Soho Forenooru." Eugene Collins, too, dealt excellently with one of the several pieces of Liszt named " Sonetta del Petrarca," but he should guard against a tendency to attitudinising. Anne Holt's playing of a movement from Bach's E major Concerto for Violin, though technically competent, had not enough interpretative grip to save the music from monotonv. Margaret Moore in oboe solos, and Hazel Pullen and Joan Moss, in groups of songs, showed both promise and accomplishment. In a seldom-heard work of Brahms. " The Death of Trenar." the ladies' choir of the school sang eloquently and beautifully under the conductorship of Miss Gertrude R'a11- W, W. R. i r, ( i AUSTRALIAN VISIT B.B.C.

In that year of Liberal triumph, commemorated by a handy " Guide, with biographical sketches of all the members, particulars supplied by themselves," the representatives of Suffolk West. Mid-Cheshire. Galway, and one of the member! for Sheffield all "expressly described" themselves as Liberal-Conservatives. There was. in fact, considerable variety in the Liberal host in those days. In Newcastle. Ashton Dilke, a younger brother of Sir Charles Dilke, called himself an " Advance Liberal," as did Henry Labouchere at Northampton. His colleague, Charles Bradlaugh, chose to be known as a Radical, as did Jesse Collings at Ipswich. Edward Brydges Williams, member for Truro, called himself a Moderate Liberal, while, presumably descending in the scale. Sir Harry Verney won Buckingham as a Whig. At Wicklow, where there were, five candidates for two seats, Mr. Jameg Carlile M'Coan was returned as a Liberal Home-ruler. The Conservatives only knew one variation, in the person ot Charles Nicholas Warton. returned for Bridport, who wrote himself down as a Tory, on the grounds that he came of a family that ha,d suffered for the Royalist cause in the " Great Rebellion." Land in the Highlands The announcement of a decision by executors to offer for sale more than 35,000 acres on the Isle of Lewis may suggest some interesting comparisons with rents and prices of land in the Highlands at different periods. There have been some remarkable fluctuations from time to time. Thus in 1832 Lord Malmesbury had the run of the Isle of Harris, which then belonged to MacLeod, with all the varied shooting and fishing. For this he paid MacLeod's tenant 25 a year. Later on it was bought by Lord Dunmore, who obtained 2,000 a year for the sporting rights. In the early eighteen-thirties, said Lord Malmesbury, " a stranger could fish and shoot over almost any part of the Highlands without interruption, the letting value of the force naturae being unknown to their possessors." Presumably the summit ot prices for shooting rights was reached in the reign of King Edward VII and will remain a "peak" for a very long time, if not for ever. All Clear It is a curious fact that some people are so overawed in the presence oC officialdom even very minor officialdom that they become inarticulate and afraid of the sound of their own voices. An assistant in a Liverpool public library was enrolling a young man as a new member the other day, and the young man's reply to a request for his name was so inaudible that the librarian was unable to catch it. " I beg your pardon," said the librarian politely. The youth repeated his name, but it wai still so muffled as to be quite unintelligible. " Do you mind spelling it ? " asked the librarian, trying to take a tactful way out of the impasse. The youth looked down at the librarian pityingly, almost contemptuously. " J-O-N-E-S 1 ' said he, suddenly flndLng his voice and speaking in accents loud and clear.
