Koesrll Attendant at Opera rrank Orth By Mae Tlne Like many of his kind, Don Eir- nam had intelligence, good health, cood looks, friends, a girl who adored him, and no particular sor rows to drown, but he also had a thin skin and a dislike for facing realities. Alcohol changed the picture for him, temporarily, and it be came a release he couldn't live with out, a habit which progressed from crutch to conqueror, until the craving dominated his life and made him a torture to himself and others. Drink eventually meant more to him than his honor, his reputation," or his girl, and he would lie, steal, beg, stoop to anything, to satisfy his thirst. As a bartender warned him, one was too many and a hundred not enough. The story of the erstwhile charming and personable Mr. Eirnam is told in straightforward and sometimes painfully graphic detail in The Lost Weekend." It is done so skilfully that not for one moment does your attention or your concern stray from the pathetic and terrible story. Ray Milland makes the central figure hateful, likable, and somehow understandable. His portrayal is a masterpiece of superb control, versatility, and sensitivity. The direction Is brilliant, with the main theme and the contributing details skilfully woven into a finished, forceful whole. Every member of the cast is completely attuned to the story, from Philip Terry as the DOWNTOWN I BALABAN & KATZ ALL THEATERS BELOW PRICE " in ii In Person i of im piano DOORS OPEN 9:30 A. M.

Howard da Silva probably is second to the star in his characterization of a bar tenderblandly blase about drunks and their promises, but considering such as Mr. Birnam just a part of a wearying if steady Job. His work is an important factor in the general honesty and realism of the film. Jane Wyman is the woman who loves and waits and worries for three long years, the one who can never completely discard Don in spite of the suffering he causes her. Doris Dowling also is an essential part of the general scheme of things, the girl who works out of the saloon but regards the handsome Don as real Romance, a prince charming beyond her eager reach. A great part of the credit for the general power of the film must goi JDOWNTOWN- WONDER THEATERS CHANCE AT NOON " """JnC manic ROSALIND RUSSELL mi m m m a aa$a. taro morocaiB man mvwr m WBX'SI,enWdlit BREESE LEE BOWMAN Thenar Ortbotrs AOELE JERGENS Tflrrant nf I nvi in Tsrhnirnlnr - t a 20 cnmenr-roi ncrm TURKEY Cornol WILDE Jeonno CRA1H ytfE Jh "' ruthless rt neids strike againl VALWNS RIDE AGAIN ALAN CURTIS-ION CHANEY-MARTHA O'ORISCOU -r-v WOODS i, , ' S?i ' R4K0OLPH AJ r , CfAfOM I .

Op. 11:30 "Duffy Tavern" u t- V AV A) Looking at Hollywood part of her life in Charlie Brackett which will co-star Bin Crosby. This hundred per cent with Brackett and to the dialog, which is Intelligent, adult, and fitting in character. The film builds up slowly and rises to a crescendo of horror when the victim escapes the screaming bedlam of the chronic alcoholic ward, only to have his own particular form of delirium tremens descend on him when he's alone and helpless. That scene, to me, was one of the most sharply hideous I've ever witnessed, and no child belonging to me would be permitted to see it. The conclusion seemed a bit pat to me I hope the recovery was that quick and easy but on the whole the film has punch, power, pathos. pull all the words customarily used in the advertisments are true. It is quite possible that Mr. Jackson and Mr. Wilder are doing a service in giving this story to the millions who are movie audiences. Certainly no one seeing it will be inclined to abuse alcohol.

BUGG GOES to TOWN" "Trouble Chaser" "Heert et the West" S Stooges Js Cartoon eiMei.aewaaa Women Study Own National Defense Plans Washington, D. C, Jan. 25 HP) Six hundred women, delegates from 32 patriotic and veterans' auxiliary organizations, tonight opened a two day convention here dedicated to the creation of a women's plan for national defense. "Actually," said John Stelle, national commander of the American Legion, whose auxiliary women's organization is sponsoring the meeting, "this is the first great organized step by American women for world peace." Mrs. Walter Craven, president of the Legion auxiliary, set the theme for the meetings at the opening session when she Indorsed universal military training. Discussing ways to prevent the possibility of World War III, Mrs. Craven said causes of war can be " ironed out by a properly functioning united nations organization." "Next," she said, "we can see to it that our youth is equipped thru universal "military training to de fend us in very short order." But the greatest preventive of all, she said, is universal knowledge that wars do not pay, and public sentiment against war. The convention is the 20th annual women's patriotic conference on national defense, sponsored each year by one of 32 patriotic organizations.
