That the man these foreign agents are seeking does not exist (he's a red herring created for diversionary reasons by agents) adds to Grant's confusion and desperation.

Jefferson, aloof and knowing, even in stone must have wondered about this crazi-ness as perpetrated on a studio lot. To give sexiness to the seemingly hopeless situation of Grant, is Miss Saint, quick with the gun and the kiss, but on our side at all times. Jessie Royce Landis, Leo G.

She was just ano.thef coward of a kid she was Matt Morgan's to southern California to see tjie festival open a five-day engagement last night before a huge hillside audience of 18,000 persons in the Hollywood Bowl. At the end of the program, a mass of 200 dancers and singers, in a kaleido- scopic variety of folk cos- tumes, were clapping hands and waving handerchiefs from the stage to the The audience was shouting bravo. Questions of fancy "art" don't turn up much in the festival.

The whole purpose of the troupe which has assembled talent from all sorts of Russian folk ensembles and ballets is to produce a ready and spectacular entertainment. MOVING FROM number to number with unerring showmanship, the program settled down only now and then for quieter interludes for instance, during several classic pas de deux, flavorsome chorales and some male solo songs. One third of the bill belonged to the Piatnitsky Russian Folk Choir, which despite its name recruited dancers as well as singers. Accordions, balalaikas and odd woodwinds kept the Festival astir with catchy native music. A background symphony orchestra also did service.

The company contained blond Russians. One group of performers, prancing on fas cinating mock horses, looked Chinese.

The Georgians, as they did amazingly clever, reckless male toe dances in black boots, were dark and mustachioed. The Uzbekistan number by wriggly, attractive Galya lsmailova was some thing from the Near East. CLASHING SWORDS struck sparks in the Georgian "Competition." Yevgeni Seme-nov repeated his wonderful Moiseyev solo takeoff of two Eskimo boys in a wrestling match. In general the girl dancers had charm. The men let fly in a startling carnival of explosive skills in jumping, kazatskis, twirling, high kicks and leg work that seemed to emerge from limbs made of spring steel and rubber.

Some of the choral and march music was too commonplace for comfort. And there was an inelegant, common strain in the "Flame of Paris" acrobatics of a Leningrad Ballet duo. But the acrobatics of a "Waltz" by the Bolshoi's pretty Bogomolova and Vlasov were more agreeable. The Bolshoi's Tim-ofeyeva and Zhdanov gave the bill a calmer, finer ballet taste in a bit of "Swan Lake." "Domik Nad Rekoi" on the was a choral passage that caught the audience by surprise. It turned out to be "Swanee River," and to everyone's delight, the Russians sang part of it in very clear (very Russian) English.

Impresario Sol Hurok, who brought this country the Moiseyev folk ballet and the Bolshoi, has scored another kind of hit with the medley Russian Festival import.
