Tha J. Arthur Rank Company has now taken one of Bennett's novels about the five industrial towns in the Midlands, around which Bennett weaved many tales, and has made a delightfully amusing picture with Alec Guinness as the star. Three lovely actresses play the leading: feminine roles, Glynis Johns, Petula Clark and Valerie Hobson. "The Promoter" moved onto the Fine Arts Theatre screen yesterday, where it will remain for sometime, if the Guinness fans are to be satisfied. Released here by Universal-International, the film's title was changed from the original, "The Card," to "The Promoter." The book was published in England under "The Card." but in this country it bore the title "Denry, the Audacious." Denry is a contraction of Edward Henry, the hero of the tale. Denry's widowed mother took in-- washing to support herself and son, but the latter was such a clever fellow that, early in life, he made up his mind that he was going to better his own and his mother's situation. He had a streak of boldness that appealed to many of his fellows, while it shocked some, but it enabled him to advance step by step until he became a famous industrialist and later mayor. Under Ronald Neamc's direction and Guinness' adroit characterization, Denry's success story is told in a series of pictures hat tickle the funnybone of the beholder. His situation improves as the picture progresses and one leaves the theatre in a pleasant glow, after seeing Denry achieve a pretty bride and the high office of mayor. ' Veronica Turleigh gives a fine performance in the role of Denry's hard-working mother. All other characters in the story are well represented on the screen. The star's young son, Matthew, makes his debut in the role of the schoolboy Denry, who learns how to Cope with life and his fellow students at an early date. . For collectors of Guinness, "The Promotor" is an item that cannot be missed. Japan Banishes Soviet Reporters Tokyo, Oct. 28 (JP).
