AND FILM I-osansclcsCfmtsL SATURDAY, DECEMBER 29, 1945 Sturges Visions Tracy as 'Banque Nemo' Hero BT EDWIN SCHALLERT Anyon in Hollywood can dream, and Preston Sturges, that Mephistophelian maker of movies, who Is always full of surprises, is doing a little vislonlng right at the present time. The fantasy revolves around Spencer Tracy, whom Sturges would very much like to persuade away from Metro for a French play he and Howard Hughes have bought called "La Banque Nemo' by Louis VerneuiL His hankering goes "way back to the days when Tracy acted in "The Power and the Glory," which Sturges wrote for Fox when Spencer was a star there. Story of "La Banque Nemo. Is .about a bank, clerk who by devious process eventually becomes the owner of the financial Institution, and is reputed to be quite "psychological.'' All of which reminds me that Robert E. Sherwood, the author f "The Rugged Path," opined the other day that it was unthinkable that Tracy could be "replaced" in ,this stage piece, as previously suggested. It closes with his leaving. XEWEST BROADWAY STAR ACQUIRED BY METRO It's a long way off, the fulfillment of the contract, but M.G.M. has assured Itself of the presence of Patricia Marshall, rated the newest Broadway star, because of her performance in "The Day Before Spring" as Christopher Randolph. This Is the musical in which Irene Manning, formerly with Warners, is featured. Miss Marshall Is a triple-threater for the Metro 'musicals, because she can sing, dance and skate. She was in "Stars on Ice," Hat Off on Ice," "You'll See Stars" and "What's Up?" She was soloist with Richard Himber'g band originally was born In Minneapolis. John C Wilson, producer, picked her for "The Day Before Spring." CHRISTINE ROUX PROPOSED FOR JOAN FONTAINE More dreaming . . . Dave Siegel doing it, in connection with tha novel "Christine Roux" written by Thames Williamson. He feels it offers an ideal part for Joan Fontaine, plans to propose "(her regular salary as against 33H per cent of the gross, I hear, and 15 per cent to Williamson, who has been writing "Escape Me Never" at Warners. The author is also noted for "Wood's Colt" and "Hanky," named as book of the month on respective occasions. Story of "Christine Roux" has a very spiritual heroine, and fits into the new semirellgious trend in the cinema. FRENCH CHANGE 'GOING MY WAY TITLE "Going My Way," which Is playing at four theaters in Paris, Is known there as 'The Road Strewn With Stars." Quite poetic! "Double Indemnity" silversheets as "Insurance for Dead." Telefilm, with Brydon Baker In charge Is to function at Santa Anita, and 't Is said that they can now flash a. race on the screen five minutes and three seconds after negative is delivered to developing room. Outfit made its debut at Hollywood Park. Harry Hayden, who portrayed his own wife's (Lela Bliss) husband in "Without Reservations," goes it alone as John Baldwin in "California" at Paramount. .TWO STUDIOS CHANGE CASTING DIRECTORS , - With Menifee Johnstone leaving for duties at the. Hal Roach studio, Monogram will have Fred Messenger, formerly with Warners and Universal, as casting director commencing Jan. 7, according to Trem Carr announcement At Warners American Room party during the. past week were such stars as Alexis Smith and Craig Stevens, Martha Vickers, Audrey Totter, Glenn Ford, Zachary Scott, Dane Clark, "Janis Paige and Rod Cameron. Cay Forester will appear In a good part In "Mr. and Mrs. Satan" for Charles R. Rogers, while John Abbott will play the violin instructor, Rozner, who guides John Garfield's artistic fate in "Humoresque." Ocatcts pofecn Drama 1 2 Shows MEW YEARS EV.

Spencer Tracy, Clark Gable, Walter Pidgeon and Van Johnson all will be in it. That should be enough to explode any film. Technical Adviser Ed Tompkins and Maj. Gen. Leslie R. Groves will be present to see that the job's done right. Bill Morrow, who did such a magnificent war job, is all set with Jerry Wald to write the first film satire. When Humphrey Bogart does the life of Jack Benny they promise to take everybody apart, including Boss Man Jack Warner. Benny's holding ' out for a glamour boy like Errol Flynn or a young Ronnie Colman to do his life. He doesn't think Bogie's the type. It will be the start of our own "Once in a Lifetime" if the present plans go through. When the industry starts kidding itself it's a mighty healthy sign. Too often we wait till the other fellow does it and then our feelings are hurt. Benny's whole career has been based on his ability to laugh at himselfand he writes his own insults. Jinx Falkenburg and Tex McCrary were told by. her doctor to expect their own little champ about the time the Forest Hills tennis tournament rolls around in August. LOSING SLEEP Larry Crosby'g getting mighty tired being called at all hours about reports of Bing's alleged illness, his sudden death, his buying of this, that and the other thing. Eing, who'll be home in a few days, telephoned Larry yesterday that he'd never had a better time or bought less. Bob Cobb and his pretty missus had a little reunion at the Troc with Xavier Cugat and "Society Kid" Hogan of Chicago. Bob was enthusing over the ballplayers' he signed up at least, he thinks they're good. I asked about that rumor of Crosby's trying to buy the Pirates and he said, "The Pirates' owner is so mad he . LOOKING 'AT? HOLLYWOOD no longer mentions the name of Crosby." THE PARTYING SHOT Sam Goldwyn's welcome-back luncheon for David Niv-en was set in a forest primeval of Chris.tmas trees with 75 bright-red satin chairs for the guests. Dave Chasen served slices of roast beef hotter than you get in your own home. Wondering how he did it, I went behind the scenes and discovered he'd moved a gas range into the adjoining sound stage. Niven, who's dying to meet Danny Kaye in the flesh, told of seeing Goldwyn's "Kid From Spain" in Germany, where it was being run for our G.L's. The boys, he said, screamed with laughter when they recognized Paulette God-dard, Betty Grable and Carol Bruce in the film. They were show girls then. Seeing Teresa Wright and Loretta Young exchanging pictures ' of their babies, David was about to whip out his own when luncheon ended. Bob Sherwood, whose head really does look like it had been carved from marble, whispered to me that he didn't write Sam's speech. At the Beverly Club party thrown for the Patcevitches of Vogue, Janet Gaynor really went high hat, wearing the tallest one seen in these parts. Biddy Banton - had on one Travis calls "Turkey's Downfall." Marian Preminger carrying so much silver around her neck she jingled like a South American gaucho. She claimed it was Peruvian. Doris Stein had her left hand in .splints. She'd met up with an over-enthusiastic motorist. Mrs. Frank Shields getting? oh3 and ahs over a wonderful hunk of bracelet Barbara Hutton sent her for Christt mas. Lana Turner's proposed trip to South America will do more to cement relations south of the border than anything I can think of. She'll also stop traffic.

Inc.. 104& 'Leave Her to Heaven Daring, Sensational BY EDWIN SCHALLERT All those who derogate the word "psychological" as applied to the modern movie of crime will find in "Leave Her to Heaven," at long last, a picture that sensationally and complete ly fills the bill. Gene Tierney, in fact, has a role to play that is veritably psychopathic in its violence, yet so solidly motivated that you view her as a thoroughly human, if also thoroughly poisonous heroine. She is the hopeless victim of a selfishness so consuming that when it manifests Itself in love, she sacrifices everything for possession, and for vengeance when she cannot possess. Her various actual crimes, as revealed in the feature showing at Grauman's Chinese, Loew's State and Fox Uptown theaters, include two murders, one of prenatal character, and finally a suicide which tends to throw the guilt attaching to her death on an innocent person. In other words, even from the grave she reaches back into life to harm. Unusual Portrayal Miss Tierney enacts this sor did virulent role in a manner that will prove strangely arresting for those who look on. It is even the kind of interpretation that may win the Academy award. This rather depends on the mood of the voters, as it will represent a wide swing away from their prior selection. It is admirably accomplished in the insidious phases. "Leave Her to Heaven," pro duced with great care, and very daringly, under the supervision of William A. Bacher and. the direction of John M. Stahl is no pap for morons, and is far away from that boy-meets-girl fodder so often discerned, on the screen. The more criminal scenes, especially the one whera Miss Tierney, out in the cold waters of a lake, allows a crippled boy to drown are practically guaranteed to make audiences gasp out loud. Neither is the episode where she deliberately kills her unborn child lacking in shock. Not much for the good is accomplished in "Leave Her to Heaven" but it is an amazing study of a character, and the "powers of darkness" at work through the medium of a single, woman, whose hate is even more sinister than her love. And both are sinister beyond belief. Price Landed The picture runs heavily to theatricalism in fact, too much so in the courtroom scenes, not withstanding these are brilliant ly sustained by Vincent Price, whose - portrayal merits atten tion as contending for the Academy supporting honors. Great are the charm atmos phere and beauty reflected in the earner romantic episodes, the natural scenery photographed in Technicolor surpassing much of this type of pictorial embellish ment. Aside from Miss Tierney and Price, Cornel Wilde as the husband has a truly notable scene where he discovers definitely the crimes of his wife. Jeanne Crain is decisively competent in her contribution. Mary Philips, Ray Collins. Gene Lockhart and Darryl Hickman. whose efforts as the boy are highly effective, are others Important, in addition to Reed Had-ley and Chill Wills. Jo Swerling wrote the screen play. FARTII 5 'Blackouts' Girl Awarded Screen Contract at 20th Another girl in Ken Murray "Blackouts of 1945" at El CapW tan Is lost to the show In favor of a picture career. Virginia Johnson, who Joined the revua a few months ago, won a "Queen" nomination on a radio program and a part of her reward was a 20th Century-Fox contract Miss Johnson is the 21st girl who hag. been signed from "Blackouts" to a movie contract since the show opened three and a half years ago.
