Nitrate to Acetate: Saving Great Films Museum Meets Emergency; Lancaster Stunts on Train Only Scheuer BY PHILIP K. SCHEUER How can you save rare old films for posterity? on wav: transfer them from Velluloid" to acetate less we art soon, all pre-19n0 movies on nitrate may crumble to dust," warns Arthur Knight, curator of films and tapes for the Hollywood Museum. The museum is acting now. Eastman Kodak is don-nating 360.000 ft. of raw film stock for the purpose, bringing the total for this year to 720,000 ft. Consolidated Film lab3 here offered free use of processing facilities. As a result restoration has been made on such classics as D. W. Griffith's "Birth of a Nation," Douglas Fairbanks "The Man From Painted Post." "His Maiesty. the American" and "The Three Musketeers William S. Hart's "The Toll Gate" and Laurel and Hardy s Two Tars." directed in W2 hy ln McC'arey and photo-craphed bv George Stevens. Also restored was David Harum" with Will Rogers, which though it was made as "late" as 10.14 us salvaged just in time: the print was ihrinking and the negative was unusable. In on Rebirth of a Nation New York's Museum of Modern Art, repository of many priceless features, is collaborating with the Hollywood Museum to the extent of allowing copies to be rnTde of them. But saving a "definitive" "Birth of a Nation," for instance, required more effort than the mere borrowing of Modern Art's negative. Consolidated has a second one, but both are now unreproducable Modern Art is also in possession of four prints none of them complete. As I get it the museum here took over these prints and enlisted the aid of Daystars Leslie Stevens (why not such an authority as Seymour Stem or Herb Sterne?) in putting together one 'good print. This Stevens reportedly has done "by careful editing. For Fairbanks' "Three Musketeers," the 13 shrunken reels were re-photographed and a new negative made. A significant factor in the arrangement between the two museums is that Hollywood's will not lend or m any wav distribute these pictures as New York does. They will be shown onlv in Hollywood's new building ground for which is to be broken Oct. 20 at 2 p.m. A second point of departure: New York's archives are open to international cinema; Hollywood will concentrate on the American art-industry. However foreigners who were later to "make good" in Hollywood - like Germany's Kmil Jannings and director Ernst Lubitsch will be welcomed into the local collection. Donors of movies and memorabilia so far have included Mary Pickford. King Vidor, Mrs. Cecilia De Mille Harper, Edward Alperson, David 0. Selzmck and the Mirisches. All others are invited to step right up. They're All Aboard 'Train' Late word from "The Train," filming at Acquigny 60 miles outside Paris: "Director John Frankenheimer and star Burt Lancaster are very high on this project. As usual, Frankenheimer is bringing great imagination and several new concepts to the picture, which is very physical. As usual, Burt insists on doing all his own stunt work much to the distress of producer Jules Bricken. Because the director wants true realism the explosion scenes are realistic as hell, requiring constant standby of a corps of medical personnel as well as fire trucks, emergency equipment, etc. But when you see it on the screen, you get the feeling it is happening right now. "As you can imagine, this film is very popular with the French since it deals with their heroism in delaying the German trainload of art ($200 million) on its way to the fatherland just, prior to the liberation of Pans. In fact, when the 20th anniversary of the liberation is celebrated next summer (August), the government has asked for the world premiere of 'The Train.' " COAST PREMIERE: University Extension's Theatre Group will inaugurate its fall season with "Brecht on Brecht," the off-Broadwav revue of the late German dramatist's works, Oct. 2,)-Dec. 1. It will be staged by William Allyn. Excerpts will be read or sung from The Threepenny Opera," "Galileo," "The Good Woman of Setzuan," "The Private Life of the Master Race," etc. t w 5 ijiris in o)y raseu on Discarded Title JOANNE WOODWARD emerges from a conefsntrated beauty course as a glamorous Parisienne in "A New Kind of Love," opening Friday at the Fox Wilshire.

Richard Kodgers wrote both words and music for the new attraction. There are 14 songs in the score among them "The Sweetest Sounds, Love Makes the World Go" and the title tune. The story of "No Strings" is based on an idea of Rodgers and Samuel Taylor It is concerned with the romance of an American model and an author whose paths cross in Paris.

A more recent type of the or dinarily tragic "Tientos" was aunounced as a version of the rhumba. but as executed by Leona Wood, appeared to be an average belly dance. A quintet of singers from Veracruz, Mexico, offered a change of sound, accompany- inof thpmsplvpe with mitara and a harp, and their version M of "Malaguena Salerosa" with its use of falsetto and yodel was especially appealing. Pepe Segundo, flamenco singer, and Julio de los Reyes, guitarist, were as impressive in their solo numbers as they were in spurring the dancers on in accompaniments. Philip Harland supplied percussion at appropriate moments. Scenery and costumes were effective and colorful. MIMI CLAR.
