Far Clarified Ad Reiulli BROOKLYN EAGLE, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1939 Telephon MAtn 4-6200 11 .- THE SCREEN Frank Capra Scores With Gay Mr. Smith' Team Stewart, Jean Arthur at Music Hall; 'Babes in Arms' Arrives at Capitol; Albee Shows 'All Quiet 'Under-Pup' By HERBERT COHN Frank CprB, Hollywood's master director nd most proflcient realist, had W latest creation unveiled yesterday when "Mr. Bmlth Goes to Washington" came to the Radio City Music HalL With It he made his bid for another df the Academy's director awards one to add to the collection ha has assembled with his last three entries. For whatever "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" has came from Capra. It Is liberally spotted with the humor sol his unique camera style; it, is more caustic than Capra ever has been when It observe how dirty politics can lead American democracy astray, and it is blunt and fearless as Capra never falls to be when It chastises Liberty's betrayers. His most gratifying accomplishment, though, in "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington'' la Mr.. Smith himself. He has drawn from Jimmy Stewart his very best grade of comic antics, speeded up his delivery and given perfect timing to bis lines. He has made Mr. Smith a delightfully naive and starry-eyed idealist, completely lovable and right, a figure that must win the support of the most unsympathetic audience. Stewart has always been fine, but he has never been finer than this. If "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" Isn't the director's best picture an 1 If it Isn't likely to follow "You Can't Take It With You" as the year's most prize-worthy production, Sidney Buchman, who succeeded Robert Rlskin as CaDra's screen playwright, Is to blame. Or possibly it is the fault of Lewis R. Foster, author of the original story. The fact is that "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington," for all of its admirable theme and winning humor, is not a very probable story and It dangles an occasional loose end. - .hen young Jefferson Smith, leader of the Boy Rangers, Is chosen by the corrupt political machine of Publisher Jim Taylor (Edward Arnold) to succeed to the Junior Benatorship of an unnamed State t the suggestion of its figurehead Governor (Guy Kibbee), Buchman has gotten off to a highly amusing start. It is a case of politics making strange bedfellows. It suggests Infinite possibilities, for the experienced senior Senator (Claude Rains), the machine's "Silver Knight," Is in Washington to keep the-' youngster In line on the machine's pet bills, and Saunders (Jean Arthur), the hard-boiled secretary who is to run his office, knows the ropes. ' ' uut wnen senator smith runs afoul of the Wlllet Creek dam project by insisting that his boys camp, instead of Senator Paine's proposed water-power project, be set up on th e valuable property, the story danger signals begin to flash. Paine, acting as front man for Taylor, who stands to make a for tune on the power deal, accuses the yotfhg Senator of attempting to sell ' his own land for the camp site a nefarious political frame ud. of course and takes steps to have him removed .from the Senate. Smith, coached by his secretary already T romantically smitten begins his militant filibuster and carries it through with Mr. Capra's brilliant realism, it makes exciting drama as Smith wears himself out with 23 hour of talk. But it is shallow logic, for not even-the dullest of Senators could fail to see the stu p pidity of the accusation. Its details ere too exaggerated to be convincing. Capra meant well in all of this. He has struck at, the most culpable practices of American politicians and he has pointed his finger at the loopholes through which the leaders of powerful special-interest groups rush when they want to clog the honest operations of the democracy of Lincoln. He has set ud a eterllng champion in the person of senator srruui, the hybrid Boy Ringer-Don Quixote' who battles for 'lost causes" and visits the Lincoln Memorial when he needs in- ,t eplratlon. But his writers have been too obvious in setting up windmills for Don Quixote to charge. They haven't matched Mr. Capra's Inherent subtlety. And none of the director's fine comic trimmings has been able to hide that fact. What they have done, though, Is to make "Mr. Smith Goes to Wash- - lngton" a meaningful social commentary and a delightful bundle of entertainment despite its weaknesses. For that the credit goes to Capra, "to Stewart and to Miss Arthur, and the flawless performances of Rains, Arnold, Kibbee, Thomas Mitchell, Harry Carey, Eugene Pallctte and H. B. Warner. What they have given to "Mr. Smith", will be remembered long after its fallings have been forgotten. , "Jerome Kern Cavalcade" Is the title of the colorful Leon Leonldoff stage presentation, which includes Jan Peerce, Melisa Mason, Walter Cassel, George Holmes and the r Music Hall Rockettes, Corps de Ballet and Glee Club.

In its place, at the Capitol Theater, is the expensive spectacle that manages to creep Into most of Metro's song-and- dance productions. If ever there was good reason to prune a budget, Rodgers and Hart supplied It, for from their facile imaginations they drew the picture of a flock of kids, children of vaudevilllans chased by the movies from the three-a-day houses, struggling to put on a show in their seaside resort to help out we older ioiks. Their trials and tribulations, the thrills that came with creation, the joy or discovering talent were all basic elements that made the Rodgers and Hart success simple ana eanny. Most of that is gone on trie screen. But Metro has its Mickey Rooney and its Judy Garland and it made them the chief luminaries in this new "Babes In Arms." It Is almost a fair exchange, for now the Rodgers ana Hart musical has two irresistible personalities who can sine and dance and play comically and sweetly in proper order, and even better, we think, than any of the youngsters in the original. And so, while Scrlptmen Jack McGowan and Kay Van Riper have taken some of the substance from "Babes In Arms," Rooney and young Miss Garland have kept it rollicking. Rooney particularly, for he mimics Clark Gable, Lionel Barrymore and Eddie Leonard and he brings down the house. Mickey is good and he doesn't have to mutr cutelv to prove it. There have been other changes too. "Little Johnny One Note" has been dropped from the R. and H. score, and "The Lady Is a Tramp-stands without its lyrics as brief background music. "Good Morning," which is already a hit, is a tuneful new addition, while the title melody and the durable "Where or. When" have been carried over from the stage production. And a prelude has been added to picture vaudeville and vaudevilllans in their heyday and, Incidentally, to make room for a few old clips of Rooney as a tyke before his tuxedo days. The crux of the plot is still intact, except that Mickey doesn't have so many heartaches in putting his show together to demonstrate to Seaport skeptics that he and the other kids with grease paint in their veins can avoid being town charges when their parents, having another try at show J business, go out on tour.

Futility is written over every foot of celluloid. You can't miss this. Doubtless the audience didn't yesterday at the Albee Theater, where it arrived "with a delightful comedy called "The Under-Pup." This "All Quiet on the Western Front" in its re-enforced form, though still with minor sound and lighting effects, has already been seen by one-quarter of the literate world. And now mechanized armies, fleeting fortresses in the skies, lines of steel and stone, gory death traps and camouflaged machine-gun nests have been added to make it as vivid as it certainly Is. And it comes alive among tho dead with the grim pathos, desperate humor and disillusionment of the younger generation that must attach Itself to the streamlined warfare of today. There are Lew Ayres, one of a group of German schoolboys who, inspired by a fanatic tutor, are carried into the trenches; the late Louis Wolhelm, who Is the veteran of their division, and John Wray, William Bakewell and Russell Gleason among the boys who learn that war Is hopeless regimentation of everything. And there Is George (Slim) Summerville, the naive soldier, and his comedy. Over it all there hover drama and pover and the kind of scenic horror that grasps and even unnerves you. A. R.

Stage Returns to Boro After 5 Years; . Morgan Team Clicks Eddie Cantor, the bugeyed comic of radio, stage and screen, returned to Brooklyn yesterday for the first time in five years and set down his air show on Loews Metropolitan stage the first stage, incidentally, from which he could boast of a male offspring. His new grandson has now been initiated, taking his place along with Ida. the five famous daughters, the audience chitchat, the sentimental philosophy and the Jack-in-the-box clowning that are mainstays of any Cantor show. With the addition of the sensational Stuart Morgan acrO' batic dancers, the Mad Russian, the suspicious Mr. Guffy, and Fairchild and Carroll in 'a galloping piano duet, Mr. Cantor has a zippy and laugh provoking act. Part of it, of course, It patterned after his familiar radio formula, but there are moments on the stage when Cantor lets go, and his comedy takes on a spicier flavor to the audience's evidenced delight. An other new spot of brightness comes with his burlesque of the motion picture gold-mine, Shirley Temple, for which Eddie dons golden wig and gingham pantie-dress. His songs are more familiar, however, Including "The Lady's in Love With You." which he introduced on his radio show; "Making the Best of Each Day," one of his favorite bits of philosophy, and "Let Them Keep PICTURES Mm GARFIELD Priscitta LANE "DUST BE MY DESTINY" JOC E.

The conductor balanced this program with that of last week by presenting . for the first time in the society's repertoire and probably in New York . both the "Daphnis and Chloe" Jack Haley Heads Show at Flatbush Mary Carlisle and Others Supplement Good Variety Bill By ROBERT FRANCIS Jack Haley heads the bill at the Flatbush this week, and it is very pleasant to see that grin and leering eyebrow in flesh and blood again. Mr. Haley has given us many belly laughs in the past and we are glad to report that he is just as funny as of yore. Incidentally, the Hollywood climate must be ben eficial for he looks as boyish as In the days of "Follow Through" and "Take a Chance." vurrenuy, nt s quite me me oiiMmeth,ng think- tbout M f M the party. He sings bits of his old tne vl,ue of muslc in ltseU WU;-song hits. Clowns with little Mary concerned.

Our only complaint with Mr. Haley Is that he isn't on long enough, and we wish that he would stay around and be comic in a Broadway musical again. Bill Marshall and his "Stop and Oo" band furnish the music background. Bill's boys are very competent and soothing to the ear, and he has a nice personality which should make a lot of friends among dance band fans. Curly, the drummer, contributes an amusing bit of comedy, and Barbara Bush vocalizes nicely. The remainder of the bill is composed of "The Royal Whirlwinds" and James Richards and June Carlson. We saw the former out at Jones Beach last Summer, and thought them the most spectacular roller-skating act we ever saw. The trio seems to have added' s new trick or two to their routine, and our opinion is still the same. Richards and Carlson do clever things with their feet, and young Mr.i Richards also does Imitations. MOTION PICTURES PERSON AT 7:30 TONIGHT!

The idea of performing bs'h V suites together has for some time appealed to Barbirolli, for he has felt that the Second Suite has been performed continually to the neglect . of the first. He had thought of re- , viving the First alone bu', refrained : from doing so because of its brevity, Thus it came about that he present- -ed both In immediate succession ' last night bridging them by nine measures which in Ravel's ballet :, score follow directly' after the con- eluding dance in the First Sul'e. It was an Interesting idea, and for the most part a successful one. " While a first hearing still left the -impression that the ballet perform- , ance was an Integray part of the creation of '.his music, it presented j technique became the prominent . ' feature of the work. A further hearing would doubtless shift the attention to other matters and the resul. would probably be the same that has made the Second Suite appear so frequently on concert programs. Is not this music after all somewhat tenuous? The concert began with Weber's Overture to "Euryanthe" and ended with Beethoven's Seventh Symphony. The rhythmic elemen'. Is prominent in both of these, so that combined with the pulsation of the Ravel music the evening throbbed with sonorities. Under these circumstances, It was comparatively easy to agree with Wagner ''.hat the Seventh Symphony is the "apothe- ' osis of the dance." There was considerable straight-forward playing In the Beethoven suggesting that the music was written for M&ssine rather than as "absolute music."
