Andrei Abrikosov (below) is seen in "The Turning Point," the Soviet Russian film based on the strategy of Stalingrad which opens at the Cinema in Detroit today. A MOON FOR THE MISBEGOTTEN' Eugene O'Neill's "A Moon for the Misbegotten" is a beautiful and ugly play. However contradictory the terms may be, it's the case. Detroit police censors, viewing the first performance at the Cass Theatre, have deleted 15 lines of profanity and coarse language, thus removing some of the ugliness but leaving the poetry of O'Neill and the essential motivations of his characters undisturbed. As a matter of fact, Detroit has seen many more shocking exhibits than "A Moon for the Misbegotten." "Tobacco Road" in its original form was more blasphemous and with less reason. There have been countless smutty bedroom farces at which the official Mrs. Grundys did not bat an eye. Indeed, this is another, though much more powerful "Tobacco Road" in a New England setting, peopled with violent Irish dreamers rather than shiftless turnip-munching Georgians. The basic theme is the same, the struggle of tenant farmers to hold their worthless land, the rebellion of the young, the bleakness of love in stony surroundings. Needless to say, the 15 objectionable lines deleted in Detroit will be restored to the script as soon as "A Moon for the Misbegotten" moves on to its next stand. But no censor can destroy the impressiveness of the performance, the quality of the acting. The play's strongest characters are those of the Hogans, father and daughter the former ranting and railing, guzzling liquor and flying off at poetic Gaelic tangents; the latter iHiling him with a rod of iron or rather, a club of wood love-starved and pretending to an immorality which is as nonexistent as it is unblushingly boastful. The play's weakest character weak in- the spiritual sense is that of the young landlord, a drunken, broken-down ham actor with a mother fixation. It is the latter whom the embattled Hogans attempt to trick: the father to retain his farm, the daughter to find an outlet for her frustrations. Genuine love blooms in the end but it is doomed. To play these people torn against themselves by impulses ranging from straightforward lust to obscure psycho-logical complexes, the New York Theatre Guild has sent us actors of uncommon stature. Of only short experience on the professional stage, Mary Welch portrays the loutish, Amazonian Josie Hogan fascinatingly, and with an inner radiance that shines through blinding-ly at the end. ' Though a Welshman by birth, Rhys Williams is the perfect Irish braggart and visionary, investing the part of the tenant farmer with alternate earthi- ness and loftiness of soul. As the tortured alcoholic, James Dunn tackles a thankless task with keen understanding of the role and with tremendous success in evoking ultimate audience sympathy. The Abbey Theatre's Arthur Shields has given these three and J. Joseph Donnelly and Lex Lindsay in minor sounding-board parts expert direc tion. The Robert Edmond Jones setting is the exterior of the battered Connecticut farmhouse, later with the front wall cut away in "Desire Under the Elms" fashion. "A Moon for the Misbegotten," soaped up but still beautiful in its ugliness, remains at the Cass for two weeks. R. M.

LIMITED PHONE 3-8818 Between the Norton Palmer and Prince Edward Hotels on Park Street Sees Movie Revolution By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD This town is on the brink of a revolution which may be the most important since motion pictures learned to talk. You get the feeling all over the film capital that big changes are in the making. The latest symptom of unrest is the tightening up of purse strings by the banks, which heretofore have been fairly liberal in advancing money to film companies. HITS INDEPENDENTS This trend may put many new independent producers out of business, since most of them depend on outside backing. The big studios are worried, too, and many new changes will come to light in future weeks Eddie Cantor is dead serious about his plan to film his life story, a la Jolson. Just in case anything might happen to him before he can film the story he is recording all his famous songs as soon as he finishes "If You Knew Suzy." He says the biography's profit will create a trust fund for his daughters, and if it does as well as the Jolson epic, they should be comfortable for life. Orson Welles won't do his English film until fall, and in the meantime he'll direct another picture here and perhaps do a series. The reason he is working so hard is simple he needs the money. And have you filled out your form yet? FEWER BUT BETTER Robert Mitchum made six films last year and it's reported only one ("Pursued") turned out to be particularly good. Betcha he makes less pictures this year and selects better ones. Retrenchment in Burbank: Warner Brothers' employes are no longer permitted to leave the lot for coffee in the afternoon. Yep, spring is just around anybody's corner, and Gene Kelly says you'd better get in shape for it. Get rid of that paunch, admonishes the dancing master, and he's got just the formula for it. Instead of the usual pre-breakfast push-ups and knee-bends. Gene advises us to pirouette before prunes, tap before toast. He says a fast 10-minute dance routine, including some high kicks and a few twirls, will do wonders toward flattening your stomach, "and think of the fun you'd have." Sounds like a good idea: I'm starting next month. It's reported Clark Gable bought a house in New York . No honey moon for Sylvia Sidney: She doesnt believe in them. "Would we be any happier in Palm Springs than here?" she asks. Besides, both she and Carlton Alsop are working. . . Ed Dmytryk is having trouble getting six stars to make "White Tower" in Switzerland. So far Paul Lukas is the only one who wants to take six months off from Hollywood. . . Lucille Ball is getting film offers from every studio but M.G.M., her home lot. . Dana Andrews has the flu . Ann Dvorak has a mania for Pitcairn Island. She has read everything written about the place, including original documents in London, and hopes to visit the island this year . Hepburn, Grant and Stewart do their "Philadelphia Story" roles on Screen Guild Players air show next week. . The "Crossfire" call sheet lists: Bob Ryan. Bob Mitchum, Robert Young. I suppose that's because Young is a producer now. CEN M. atie m I of ths. alls, sum rd ned 1 of xaa nan nit. Nixon Corrects Frost's Speech By Staff Reporter TORONTO Harry C. Nixon corrected Hon.
