'"En fc'niia Natt" lacks some of the excellent production that went int.j "Intermezzo." and Miss Bergman's role is not nearly so prominent, but it's highly explosive percussion drama. A Cinderella Man. - One thing it explodes is the old theory that Cinderella must be female. Another is the notion that anyone pressed to wear the glass slipper might conceivably step out of a life geared to such things as great riches and a Charming Prince or Princess. The story is adult as well as unconventional. Valdemar Moreaux, of unknown parentage and roving nature, is a man who takes life and love wherever he finds them. Opening scenes establish immediately his current connection with the Martensson circus and the girl who owns it. When fate brings the traveling how to the grounds of Col. Magnus von Brede, the old count recognizes Valdemar as an illegitimate son, offers him everything as an heir, and encourages marriage with his beautiful ward. Eva.

But it doesn't try hard enough. If you ask us, it's a lot of hooey about a Serbian refugee who is weak enough to marry a nice American guy and immediately locks her bedroom door to keep him out because she firmly believes that she will kill him once their love is consumated. It's an old Balkan legend of which Irene Dubrovna can't free herself, that she, like the other women of Hebron Tim Smaryastor: ULIEE THURS 8:30 P.M. : MUVdPILD WnttM mi DimM If MESTON JTBUCtJ .,. i Of to nti jm a!
