Reviews and Previews fTlHE trend toward realism in motion pictures has never I been more forcefully exemplified than in "Call North - piA r7r7'7 1Acrf TNirorif Jot ri - fori - hi - nr "fiVw roloacP OlUC Illy bllC ,iatt3 1 a y.vivmi wuuiuj a. W.A. which opens tomorrow at the State. The story is a true one, handled in an authentic, vivid, semi - documentary style. "Call Northside 777," we believe, will be one of the hits of the year. This is a dramatization of a factual story which began in 1932 with the trial and conviction of an innocent man for the fatal shooting; of a Chicago police officer. News reel shots of that year, which are the prologue to the film, attest to the fact that. Chicago was a pretty rough town in the turbulent thirties. Twelve years after the conviction, a classified advertisement catches the eye of an alert city editor of the Chicago Times. A $5000 reward is being offered by the 'convicted man's mother, an impoverished Polish scrubwoman, for information leading to the identity of the real killer. A rather cynical reporter is assigned to the job of unearthing proof of wrongful imprisonment. James Stewart plays his most dramatic screen role to date, that of the reporter who fights against almost overwhelming odds to secure evidence that will set free a man condemned to a 99 - year term for the murder of a policeman. He is modest and unassurning, as fans demand. Richard Conte is excellent in the role of Frank Wiecek, who was imprisoned for life for the speakeasy shooting. In the fea tured role of the city editor, Lee J. Cobb scores another success with his dispassionate performance. On the distaff side the outstanding acting is delivered by Kasia Orzazewski as Conte's mother, a sympathetic role which could easily have become maudlin in less competent hands. Minor roles as the wives of Stewart and Conte are capably handled by Helen Walker and Betty Garde. Penetrating credibility which will impress audiences was achieved by using, wherever possible, the actual locale of the story, in and around Chicago. A travelogue of the Windy City's uglier and more sordid sections, of which there are many, left that touch, of realism which has become the trade - mark of Director Henry Hathaway who also turned out the Twentieth - Century Fox dramatic hit, "Boomerang!" Settings, in addition to the backdrop of Chicago, are excellent and here at last a newspaper office looks and acts like a real newspaper office no movie reporters screaming to movie editors to tear out the front page! At no time are either the action or the characters overdrawn. The entire picture is filmed without benefit of background music in order that tunes may be woven in primarily for dramatic effect in appropriate spots. The ordinary sounds of the street, traffic noises and the hum of crowds, and indoors the clanking of prison doors swinging shut and the roar of newspaper presses, prove far more effective than musical score. "Call Northside 777" is an important picture for several reasons First, because it shows, fearlessly, how framed evidence can convict a man innocent of a crime. Secondly, it s important because of the cinematic treatment. It marks another step toward realistic handling of a given theme, a progressive move which audiences are coming to demand in their motion picture fare. And lastly, it's important because it's good, absorbing entertainment. We're rooting for Margot Moser, an actress formerly of Harrisburg, in the forthcoming annual competition of the New York Photographers Association to select the queen of the year. Miss Moser's name was recently entered in the contest, the results of which will be announced at the annual Photographers ball at the Waldorf - Astoria on April 9. ' At present Miss Moser, who is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. Clair Moser, of Colonial Park, is playing the role of "Giggling Gerty" in the New York production of "Oklahoma" and is also first under study to the leading lady. She was chosen as representative of the cast for the competition which includes candidates for the crown from all major Broadway productions. Miss Moser was formerly vr i Margot Moser is a candidate for the title of 1948 Queen of the New York Photographer's Association. HEDDA HOPPER'S: Looking at Hollywood Hollywood, Calif., Feb. 18. Darryl Zanuck, who shelved sev eral of his important stories when the British tax was announced, has started dusting them off for production. One 11 SKv:..w ui uie yarns, , - "Down to the ff Sea in Ships, will be Tyrone Power's next picture after Fear of Little Men." In it Ty plays a young whaling cap tain. Much of v the film will be M - U 4.1 Mexican coast, with Louis Lightoon producing . . . Ty, who had planned another plane jaunt after two pictures, will have to combine business with pleasure. He's also sched uled for "The Prince of Foxes," which will be shot entirely in Italy during the early summer, the cast, except for three princi pals will have all Italian actors Henry King, the director, goes to Florence next month to pick locations and Zanuck will join him in May to okay the backgrounds. Of all the 55 balls held during New Orleans' carnival, the Comus was the most spectacular.,Jt was the most magnificent pageant I've ever witnessed. The costumes were incredible; and the event out - sparkled the crown jewels of England. Philip and Elizabeth doubtless would have loved it Frank Sinatra tried, but failed to make the Comus. The Walt Disneys and Harold Lloyds did, The queen of the ball was one of the prettiest girls I've ever seen, The Lloyds and Frances Parkinson Keyes drove up to Baton Rouge to have luncheon with Gov Jimmy Davis and his missus. I was sorry I couldn't accompany them. Mrs. Keyes gave a tea for us in the old Gen. Beauregard House. There I met Dorothy Dix, who is the belle of New Orleans and its social leader. She's a per fectly enchantmg lady, Spring must be in the air. Law rence Tierney is being seen about town with Deanna Durbm. But Larry says, "We're just good friends." Lew Ayres showed up at The Dells with Lina Romay; at the same place Guy Madison was munching his morsels with Cathy Downs. Gene Tierney showed up at the Cafe Joy one night with Charles Feldman; on the next she was at the same place with her former, Oleg Cassini. Intimates still discount possibilities of a re conciliation between those two..
