Lama LteZnstltsCimtP Tues.,ApR;ii7,i9S6artiii Two Novels Purchased; .'Rock Hunter to Open New Season at Carthay BY EDWIN SCIIALLEBT -When C. V. Whitney and Merian C. Cooper indicated they expected to delve extensively into the American scene for inspiration for their pictures, they weren't idly talking. They have just purchased "The Missouri Traveler," by John Burress, and will shortly produce this in Technicolor and Vista Vision with screenplay by Frank Nugent. This is a warm, human type of novel about an orphan who is befriended by a kindly marshal and will be shot on actual locations in Missouri. For this reason Ted Tetzlaff, who is to direct, and Pat Ford, associate producer, will leave for the area along the Mississippi River where the subject will be photographed. The film will follow "The Searchers" logically and tie up well with "The Valiant Virginians," which is to have John Ford as its director. ' Another significant book purchase is announced by Universal-International in "Badge of Evil," published two months ago and written by Whit Masterson. This is a modern suspense melodrama about a young District Attorney who uncovers evidence of perfidy on the part of. a retired police captain. Said officer of the law was guilty of planting evidence in order to get a conviction. The plot will be built around the discovery of how this was done. Albert Zugsmith is to produce. ROCK HUNTER' ACQUIRED BY CARTHAY Continuing of stage activities at the Carthay Circle, following the special engagement of Edward Everett Hor-ton in the comic "White Sheep of the Family," was in- dica.ed yesterday by the t .t: s ?

It is the show that has so spotlighted Jayne Mansfield along with Orson Bean, who was in "How to Be Very, Very Popular" at' .20th Century-Fox. After the engagtment here, the play will be taken to San Francisco for three weeks at the . Geary Theater.

Ust Day! milMM'r Maria Victoria Heads Bright Variety Show ALEC GUINNESS playt princtt in "Tha Swan," & film based on the Molnar drama, opening tomorrow at State, Hawaii, Picwood and eight other theaters. Alec Has First Kiss-for Lens Just before playing his first scene with Grace Kelly in "The Swan," screening here tomorrow, in which as the prince he meets his future bride, Alec Guinness stepped up to the camera and implanted a kiss on the lens. "It's an old superstition with me," explained the British comedian, who makes his Hollywood debut in the MGM romance. "But this is the biggest kiss I've ever given a camera. That Cinema-Scope is the largest I've ever faced." If you love beauty nd who doesn't Maria Victoria fills the bill. And if you enjoy today's throaty warbling, you'll find the lady's performance just what you have been listening for. Sen-orita Victoria is fairly pack ing the big Million Dollar Theater, home of Mexican vaudeville shows. Even amid a real galaxy of applause- pagers, she stands out brightly as star on this week's bill. Lots of Warbling Clad in a streamlined black satin gown, she sings "Ml Ultimo Fracassa" and other triste songs as well as some gay ones, and the ap plause she gets rivals a thunderstorm. The senorita is justly famous not only in Latin-speaking countries but in some English-language ones as well. As usual there's a lot ofl singing on the bill. Among the other vocalists one must mention Los Calavaros, three men in picturesque charro costume, who used to sing on the late lamented Jorge Negrete's bills, and whose nicpiy wpnrted voice are heard in "La Noche de Mai" and other numbers. Iis Diamantes art two men with guitars and one with maraccas, who offer "Usted" and a couple of other tuneful numbers. Dancing is varied in style. Raquel starts things off with that exciting new dance, the cha-cha-cha. Los Zeus, man and girl clad in blue, do ball room dances gracefully, with some athletic trimmings. The man is especially graceful Their best performance is in dances representing all peri ods from 1918, and including the Charleston, conga, mam- bo and others, winding up with the inevitable cha-cha-cha. Capers Amuse Landon and Company are midgets, with the exception of one big man. Their funny capers amuse and their ath- f't. afun'l in tny iim;., thlr j Comply l i p r I n k 1 d throughout t?i bill, with i huliljy Timi Hiyes doing nothing fUj but humoroi.11 material.
