The impulse is to drag him out of it, to keep him away from common touch with its phony bums and Paal Robeson crooks, its cheap women and cheaper raft- ers.

it is au in the sawdust and i the muck, a crude affair patched together for selling purposes. And he, especially when he sings in a gorgeous, deep swelling voice that God gave him to sing spirit-i uals with, is like some sort of great shiny ebony star in a thinly whitewashed setting. "Black Boy" details the rise and fall of a roustabout. He wan- ders one day into the camp of a fat prizefighter who needs spar ring partners and he puts the fighter away.

He loses his next fight, the boms 'desert 'him, the woman he has thought white tarns oat to be black, which is a blow to his vanity, and we leave him drawing on his old overalls getting ready to bum bis way to- California. There are two publics that may rally to the srmnort of "RlacV Boy. One is interested in drama slnTrtmtTHF On i intrtMl in Paul Robeson. Neither will be en- tirely disappointed, and neither entirely pleased. The slummers will find nothing new.

Profanity and a barroom atmosphere are as common as the dirt that breeds them these days. But. they will find a lot of both. The Robeson hopefuls will discover their protege doing a first-class job approximating the true stuff his cnaracterization calls for. His Black Boy is a handsome brute.

As an actor he is intelligent and studious. Give him Darts that snake geniuses and within his physi cal limitations be will rise to them. In the cast a flashing young colored, Edith Warren. playing ner nrst legitimate part, hear, and playing it with an earnestness that is effective. There is a good performance by Edward Redding as a manager crook, and another by Fuller Melliin jr, as a one-armed philosopher.

All the fighting is offstage. The Imain bout is reported by radio, Ma j. J. Andrew White officiating most realistically, Jim Tally and Frank Dazey are the authors of -Black Boy." David Burton the director, the settings by (YellentL Horace Liveright, the producer, has given them all their I chance. 1 ne rest is up to tnem.
