These four 'hicago Sticky Feet Help Hilltop Capers CHICAGO, (/P -- Coacli "Nels orgrcn of the University of Chiago's basketball team hoped his oys had all the bad basketball ut of their systems Thursday. The Maroons took their second eating of the season from Mar- uette Wednesday night, 23 to 15, n their own floor. Earlier in the eason at Milwaukee, they made larquette hustle for a 25 to 21 de- gion. Marquette clamped a stout efense on Chicago, but the Ma- oons appeared flatfooted through- ut the contest. Chicago will open its Big Ten eason against Indiana, half-owner vith Purdue, of the 1936 title and gures to absorb a walloping un- ess the boys produce a form-re- ersal. tant to the industry to note tha' costume stories found such striking favor, and that music, playec a major role in four of the "besl ten." Of equal interest, certainly, is (lie classical trend instanced by the selection of works by Shakespeare and Dickens, Hervey Allen and Mare Connolly. The fact that "The Green Pastures" and "A Midsummer Night's Dream" found inclusion tends to support the theory that the cinema successfully has coped with the fantasy problem. A total of 149 pictures was nominated for the 1936 "best ten list as against 166 in 1335. ' The honor roll dropped from 49 to 44. Eligible pictures for 1936 numbered 387. Not a few reviewers departed from the eligible list to cast votes for "Ilomeo and Juliet," "Winterset," "Born to Dance" and "Theodora Goes AVild," all generally "" " Daily will be included in the 1937 poll. For a second successive year, foreign productions failed to enthuse American critics. Not a single foreign picture found a place among the "ten best," and few received more than scattering votes. There was a gratifying increase in the number of critics who carried the poll to their own readers through the medium of simultan r eous local symposiums, and interest throughout the United States soared to new levels as a result. Generally The Film Daily's "len best" will determine local poll winners. In this connection, it is noteworthy that fan and professional critic manifested a common standard as a rule. Finally, it is significant that the ."ten best" of 1936 are well keyed to "box office." There may be exceptions, yet for those exceptions, if they exist, it is easily possible to see longevity that must turn the scales. e * * The Strand has booked Tor us Friday and Saturday bill "Rio i Grande Ranger," with Bob Allen, and "Dangerous," with Beite Davis and Franchot Tone. ?
