Naturally their knowledge of light and shade, their experiments with starting angle photography have been vastly improved by modern methods. Some of those early films were so murky that the players really did look like shadows and there are shots in "Citizen Kane" which give the same effect. Too often, according to modern standards, is the face of Mr. Welles in such complete shadow that the scene loses its punch. There s a time for art and a time for realism. But for the most part Mr. Welles has employed camera angles and light and shading so effectively and smashingly that the picture seems to overturn all present day ideas of making films. ' He has not hesitated to try unusual groupings, lightings from below instead of from above, unconventional methods of utilizing flash-backs and other camera tricks. He has drawn the character of his hero Charles Foster Kane by depicting him always through the ovps of others. Each persons per sonality, ambitions and beliefs color what he tells to the reporter try ing to find out the real self of the dead publisher. So engrossing to a student of motion pictures are all these surprising innovations that one foreets sometimes the actual storv bpinff told on the screen There has been much discussion reeardini? "Citizen Kane" as a de scription of an actual publisher. Many articles have been written about the film before it was shown to the public. Certainly there are Darallels in the story that are tin mistakable. But for the most part the story is sympathetic to the powerful Mr. Kane a man with great gifts of daring, brains and charm whose ambitions override even his finest achievements, and who dies in a magnificent castle without find ing any real . satisfaction and hap piness in life. The story commences with his death a dreary, dark sequence. His last word, as he painfully relinquished life, was "Rosebud." And a smart film editor sends out a re porter to find out the significance of that word. 7t will probably ex plain the whole career of the dead Mr. Kane, m the mind of the editor. So the reporter here Mr. Welles is very clever in allowing one not to see the reporter's face as he talks to the men and women connected with the publisher interviews all who have had intimate dealings with the great man. They include the dramatic editor who was his best friend, but who left him when Kane's early ideals were so defl nitely forgotten or shattered in the rise to power; the business manager who admired him' and stood by him in his newspaper battles; the woman he lived with and who broke up his marriage to a niece of the President, thus causing him to lose out in his fight for the Governorship. The reporter reads in the memoirs of a business tycoon the early life and THE STAGE COLONIAL THEATRE "The Man Who Came to Dinner" "The Man Who Came to Dinner," comedy by Moss Hart and George S.

Lyle Bettger tjcvtriiy aiiioa tru Khodes Banjo ..Teddy Hart There was acid in the air and the Real McCoy on the stage of the Colonial Theatre, last night, where Alexander Woollcott was playing Sheridan Whiteside in "The Man Who Came to Dinner." Indeed the Real McCoy was there, for the mmble-tongued lecturer, the fascin ating great man of the written and spoken word is understood to have oeen drawn by George Kaufman and Moss Hart as. a satirical por trait of Mr. W. himself. As everyone well remembers who saw -xne Man Who Came to Dinner at its tryout here a year ago last jeaii, some of the most corrosive quips ever penned by Kaufman and mrt were put upon the lips of Mr. Whiteside. Therefore, to see and hear Mr. Woollcott in the part is a remarKaoie occasion in the theatre. jvjx. wooncott ana his company come nere ror tneir last stop on a long and profitable tour. The popularity of "The Man Who Came to Dinner" has been fabulous, though no less so than the amount of cash that has flowed across the box office ledges of the theatres where it has played. That man who came to dinner, you recall, did so in a small Ohio town, where he slipped on the ice outside Mr. and Mrs. Stanley's house, a misfortune which caused him to be a wheel-chaired invalid there for some weeks about Christmas time. An admired, even revered Figure of belles lettres, Mr. White side was a man of idiosyncrasies, with a gift for oral venom that belied his blandly disarming smile. With benign selfishness he in sulted all about him, relegated the Stanleys to the upper floors of their house, taking over the rest of the place himself, hiring the cook and butler away, and generally causing high blood pressure by the variety of his wants and the dizzy traffic of messages to and from the smart people of the world who were his friends. And then his secretary' fell in love with a local newspaper-! man who had written a play, an offside bit of inconvenience that caused Mr. Whiteside to call in a nobility-chasing actress of his acquaintance to grab off the young man herself. The Woollcott voice and the Woollcott manner have a hypnotic fasci nation about them. The perfect timing oi lines, me sharp tncisive-ness of speaking which characterized the portrayal of Monty Wool-ley (who was the original Whiteside) are not in Mr. Woollcott's performance. He plays it in gentler fashion, and makes Whiteside a pleasanter man than did Mr. Wool-ley. The contrast is interesting, yet each characterization is in its own way logically conceived. Edith Atwater, the secretary of the first company, again acts the role with Mr. Woolcott, an exhibition of charm and skill which will be remembered. Doris Nolan as the actress, the Beverly Carlton of Erik Rhodes and Teddy Hart's Banjo are effective though high-pitched. The remainder of the cast are competent THE ttOSThy DAILY GLOBE TUESD A Y. MAY 20. 1941 I ( 'W- "f I "1 Q. Is vaudeville outmoded and what is the difference between it and burlesque. M. U. L. A. Time will tell regarding vaudevilleand I have never been to a burlesque theatre. Q. Please tell me who played the role of Yager in "Border Vigi lantes"? J. F. C, East Dedham. A. Jim Yager was played by Tom Tyler, and this was made by the Harry Sherman Productions, Paramount Studio, Hollywood. Q. This may answer the fan who wrote about Bruce Bennett He was formerly a champion swimmer called Herman Brix, who used to appear in the "Tarzan" serial. His recent pictures under the name of Bruce Bennett include "The Secret Seven," "Before I Hang" and '.'Escape to Glory." Movie Fan. A. Thank you dui are you sure that they are. the same actor, since Bruce Bennett and Herman Brix are listed in my Motion Picture Almanac as "eparate persons? I haven't anything on either one in my files. Q. Who played the role of Maurice in "The Mad Doctor"? I liked him very much. Pussy, Stoneham. A. Martin Kosleck, who was born in Barkotse, Pommern, March 24, 1907, played the role and I agree with you as to his being a splendid actor. He has brown hair and green eves.and was six years with Max Reinhardt's dramatic school and theatre in Germany. He has been business beginnings of Charles Foster Kane. . He learns that the man had a lust for power and a vitality that made him extraor dinarv amonff hs fellows. But he never does discover that Rosebud is the name of the little sled that young Charlie Kane played with just before he left for the East and the picturesque career that was to make him one of the most astound ing men of American contemporary history. Kane started a war to get circula tion for his newspapers he built an opera house for his light-of-love who eventually became ms wue he made a newspaper empire which later started to crumble. He did not become Governor, due to the scandal of his relations with Susan Alexander, and he could not buy the continued love of his associate, Jed Leland, even though he offered $25,000 and made a theatrical gesture of finishing a review wnicn was objectionable to his singer wife. Charles Foster .Kane, a rutniess, power-mad, charming, money-gen- erous ana yet aeieatea man weues makes him neither hero nor vmain but a man one could hate and at the same time feel sorry for his failure to realize the promise oi his first years.

Only three questions, you know, and here are three addresses: Paramount Studio, Hollywood; 20th Century-Fox, Westwood Hills; Universal, Universal City, Calif. I don't read movie magazines sorry. ture. Apparenty Mr. Welles is not out to prove anything in the film, but rather to give a distinguished characterization that has the same qualities of light and shade that the picture itself has. There are moments his delineation is subtle there are times when he resorts to action to put over his ideas. His makeup as uie graauaiiy aging Kane is superb but he matches his voice and his manner to the part, and he grows old with the story as naturally as if it were really the weight of years that put the palsy in his fingers and the stoop to his back. Next in importance of acting comes Joseph Cotten, . who plays the part of his best friend, the one man who might have saved him from complete disillusionment and loneliness. Cotten is excellent, both as the idealistic editor and the talka tive, sick old man who still retains the attractive qualities of his youth. Everett Sloane is also outstanding, playing the part of the Jewish business manager with vigor and honesty, while Dorothy Comingore superbly portrays the role of the singer-wife who becomes a dipsomaniac after leaving her husband. Ruth Warrick as the first wife gives a dignified yet sensitive performance, while Agnes Moorehead is interesting and unusual as Kane's ambitious, determined mother. However, when one sees "Citizen Kane" it is not the acting you remember, but the treatment of the story, the magic performed by the camera and the dynamic quality of me man wno , wrote, produced and played the title role. Perhaps some day we shall see a picture called "Citizen Welles."
