For Classified Ad ReiulU BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 7, 1937 Telephone MAin 4-6000 9 News of the Passing Show in the Stage, Screen and Musical Worlds w The Theater The Abbey Theater Players Present Another Success, 'Juno and the Paycock,' at the Ambassador By ROBERT FRANCIS The Abbey Theater Players continued their repertoire this week with the opening last night of Sean O'Casey's "Juno and the Pay-cock." It has come to a point with this group of acton, from Dublin, where It is almost unnecessary to remark that it was quite up to the standard which they are steadily setting for themselves at the Ambassador every week. In fact, with the exception of "Katie Roche," with which they Inaugurated their season and which they Immediately followed with their smashing success, "The Far Off Hills," each subsequent week has been an achievement. O'Casey's bitter study of Irish -middle-class life during the "diehard" period of 1922 is a picture so deeply tragic as to be perhaps somewhat limited In appeal, but It is so real and these players throw themselves Into It with such wholehearted zest that they literally drag the audience up on the stage to live the story that they have to tell. Likewise, as Is usual, with the Abbey group the honors are fairly evenly distributed amng the cast. It Is of no moment to any of them whether he or she is doing a bit or playing the lead; whatever they have to do they do well. This is probably the quality which lends the singular charm to be found in practically all of their performances. Last night P. J. Carolan gave a magnificent portrait of the swaggering "Paycock," Capt. Jack Boyle. He succeeded In making the character exactly what O'Casey Intended, a conceited, lying, lazy tippler. Eileen Crowe as Juno gave one of the best performances I have seen her do this season. It is a long, Democrats Name 2 Complete Slates Freeport Club Election Fight Is Scheduled Dec. 20 in New Hall Freeport, Dec. 7 Two complete slates were nominated last night at a meeting of the Freeport Democratic Club, 35 Railroad Ave. One was submitted by the club's nominating committee headed by Edward J.

Wright difficult role, but she handled It with great skill and managed to make the wife a truly tragic and sympathetic figure. Arthur Shields and Aideen O'Connor played the two children. Shields as the son crippled by the civil war had a particularly convincing makeup and both were excellent in portraying the mixture of traits inherited from their mother and father. P. J. McCormick made the most of the unsympathetic part of Joxer Daly, and of course Maureen Delaney contributed the best of the lighter moments with one of her inimitable characterizations of a gabby neighbor, Malsie Matigan. "Juno and the Paycock" is one of the Abbey Group's bits of more robust fare. It isn't meant to be pretty or nice, but as a picture of a woman's desperate, futile struggle to keep a home together in spite of insurmountable obstacles and of her patient resignation in the face of utter misfortune it is moving and at times heartrending. It is a story by a man who has known such people and such situations, and he writes of them with a mixture of bitterness and gentleness which makes a fine play. To see the Abbey Players do it is to see It done at its best. Marriage Licenses David Jessel. 41 Bond St. Anne Gordon, 226 McKlbbln St. Bernard Marcus, 8784 146th St.. Jamaica.

Picture On the rosters of the Hollywood movie studios there are comely girls of all the customary categories, 1. e., blonde, brunette and redhead; tall, medium and short; vocal, terpsichorean and dramatic. Similarly, thespians of the masculine gender run through all gamuts, and, in addition, there's W. C. Fields. But a funny thing about all this, Inexplicable at first blush, Is that while there are glamour girls aplenty on all rungs of the ladder to stardom, and a suitable coterie of them clinging to its loftiest pinnacle, there are vacant rungs on the masculine side. In short, the ranks of eligible leading men In pictures are unduly thin. You can point to your Clark . uaoieandcary cooper, to your Ty - rone Power, Charles Boyer, Fred MacMurray and Robert Taylor. And you can add in a half dozen or so more, some of whom we'll mention, but there's still, and may always be, a shortage. There Just aren't enough of the personable lads who serve acceptably to quicken feminine pulses and to inspire male viewers. Consider that it's the bounden duty of each and every leading man to provide, with his personality, a definite lure at the box-offices of the world and nation, or at least a good many of them. If your hypothetical tall, dark and handsome fails at this acid test he soon finds himself bereft of a career in the cinema, and perhaps goes back to the milk route, from whence he came. The unfillable demand for leading men possessing that abstract ingredient somewhat akin to feminine allure is understandable when you consider that the Hollywood film factories, each of them, and there are some eight of major status, turn out an average of a picture a week every week of the year, and that each picture utilizes the services of its principals for numerous weeks on end. Then, further, the show-going public likes a change of faces now and then, and would soon tire of even its topmast favorites if they the favorites were to be seen too frequently. Currently you've Gable working in "Test Pilot," Cooxr with Claudctte Colbert in "Bluebeard's Eighth Wife." Tyrone Power with Alice Faye in "In Old Chicago," Fred MacMurray about to work in "Dream of Love," and Taylor por traying "A Yank at Oxford. ' Then there are Ray Milland depicting "Her Jungle Love," Cary Grant in "Bringing Up Baby," Don Ameche in "Happy Landing," Errol Flynn in "Adventures of Robin Hood." There are precious few more whom we m; y have overlooked. Santa Visits Children In Southside Hospital Sick children confined to the Southside Hospital, whose eyes cam- wistful looks every time Santa clans Is mentioned, had an unexpected visit from the jolly old lellow last night.

Al Shean, Monty Woolley, E. E. Clive, Charles Judels and Maude Eburne are featured in the leading supporting roles. Thrills of the race track form the background for a dramatic story of childhood friendships and loyalties in " thoroughbreds Don't Crv." which offers an intimate glimpse into the hearts of youngsters.

District Attorney-elect Edward J. Neary of Westbury, who will wait upon the grand Jury this month, told the court there are no seriously pressing problems in prospect. Mr. Neary will serve as assistant district attorney until the end of the month. Justice Cuff described the district attorney elect as an "earnest, sincere, and hard working attorney."

S to r5 ii rx ii ma Music of Yehudi Menuhin Gives First Recital of Season at Carnegie Hall Plays 'Lost Concerto' of Schumann History was made In Carnegie Hall last night when Yehudi Menuhin played for the first time before an American audience the already famous D Minor violin Concerto by Robert Schumann. This much publicized work has lain unknown and unplayed In the Berlin library since the death of the composer in 1856. The story of Its recent discovery Is well known as a result of the world premier performance of this work on Nov. 26, when the concerto was played In Berlin by Georg Kulen-kampf In an edited form. Last night it was given a brilliant performance by Mr. Menuhin, who featured it in his first New York recital of the season. The generously talented American violinist played the concerto In its original form with piano accompaniment as he learned it from a photostatic copy In Schumann's own writing. Robert Schumann completed the three-movement work In October, 1853. It was his last opus before the tragic mental Illness clouded his mind and led him to his death only three years later. At this time the manuscript was In the possession of Schumann's friend, Joachim, the violinist. For reasons still unknown, Joachim never played the concerto publicly but retired It to the Berlin Staatsbibllothek with the stipulation that it be left untouched until 100 years after Schumann's death 1956! Could he have thought that the work was composed under the approaching cloud of Schumann's Insanity and that his association with it would harm him? Whatever the answer, It was made clear last night that Mr. Menuhin conceived this concerto In a truly lucid manner and his listeners were left no doubt as to the greatness of the music he was playing. The program offered by the re- eltallst opened with a Mozart So nata in F major (Koechel No. 376) The unassuming grace and sparkle which Mr. Menuhin gave his per Screen News Chester Morris, stage and screen player, has signed a long-term contract with RKO Radio Pictures and will make his bow to his film following under this company's banner in "Crime." Morris made his first hit appearance as Rocky Morse in this Samuel Shipman-John B. Hymer play, which was produced by H. A. Woods and opened on Feb. 22, 1927, at the Eltlnge Theater. Anne Shirley will play opposite Morris. Eduardo Clannelli, soon to be seen in the new Lily Pons-Jack Oakie picture, "Hitting a New High," Is also cast in "Crime," which will be directed by Lew Landers. The option on continued services of Loretta Young has been exercised by 20th Century-Fox. The actress, who recently returned to the studio after a New York vacation, is currently to be seen at the Albee in "Second Honeymoon," in which she Is co-starred with Tyrone Power. Ethel Merman, star of Broadway musical shows, is preparing for her socond film role for 20th Century-Fox. She played an important pat t in the recently completed "Happy Landing," starring Spnja Hcnieand Don Ameche, and in a few weeks v.-ill go before the cameras in "Alexander's Ragtime Band." a musical written by Irving Berlin. The new picture is a panoramic view of modern American music and is Berlin's second for 20th Century-Fox. His first was "On the Avenue." Martha Raye, who has been unable to work for two days because of an attack of laryngitis, attempt ed to resume her role in "College Swing" at Paramount's Hollywood studio on Saturday, but after a brief appearance before the cameras decided to return home. Her physician said that her voice will return to normal after she rests for a few days. Raoul Walsh, who is directing "College Swing," continued work on scenes with George Burns, Gracie Allen and Edward Everett Horton In which Miss Raye is not needed. Michael Brooke (the Earl of Warwick), who recently was given a contract by Paramount, has been assigned his first feature role in a film.

Completing the first half of the evening's enter tainment was the Sonata No. 1 in G minor of Bach. This piece was a triumph of technical performance being, as it Is, entirely unaccompanied. The probram of playing a fugue movement on violin alone are manifold and they were amply met by Mr. Menuhin. The presto movement, however, appears to be just as difficult but In it there appeared an added virtuosity which made the listener all tost unconscious of the technical . 'icultles, As for t.. ' "aluatlon of the Schu mann cor -..no, may It be said that there ap '-ed to this listener no l int of l possibility of cloudiness or melav a in the mind of the compose: vhen he wrote It. It is a fire product of Schumanns romantic genius at the height of its development. The work is strongly melodic, held together by some vir ile rhythms and time patterns. The second movement, which is marked Langsam (slowly), was especially rich in the romantic ebb and flow of its haunting melodic line. Although the thematic material is not overabundant, it Is gem-like in its purity and significance, and Is well treated to present a homogeneous work truly worthy of its composer. Mr. Menuhin was called to the stage six times to acknowledge the ap-phuse which his playing of the concerto brought from the audience. The program closed with two Hungarian Dances by Brahms and Joachim and a caprice by Locatelli entitled Labyrinth. The final offering, a Rossini-Paganinl Fantasy, showed the artist's incredible mastery of harmonics, the whole set of variations being played on the G string. Ferguson Webster was the very able accompanist. R. O. W. Campbell and John Howard In "Bulldog Drummond Interferes." Marjorie Weaver, dark-eyed graduate of the 20th Century-Fox stu dio stock school, who recently made her Initial bid for stellar rank in featured role in "Second Honeymoon," has been rewarded by her studio with a new long-term contract The new contract classifies her as a featured player, definitely taking her out of the stock group, and is so worded that the designation "star" may be substituted when occasion arises. That substitution may be very near, too. For reports from the studio indicate that Marjorie Is doing a splendid job in one of the three title roles of "Sally, Irene and Mary," a new musical in which Alice Faye and Joan Davis, both t tarred, play the other title roles. John Farrow, Warner Brothers director who is making a vacation tour of England and the Continent, will return to tills country early next month, according to a message from him to the New York office of the film company. He Is due back at the Warner Brothers West Coast studio before Jan. 17, the starting date of his next assignment, "The Singing Cowboy," which will feature Dick Foran, popular Western star. Jackie Cooper will star in two productions for the Monogram Pictures next season, according to an announcement made in Hollywood by W. Ray Johnston, president of the company. The success which has greeted "Boy of the Streets,' Cooper's first starring vehicle 'or Monogram, prompted the signing of young Cooper to the new contract. Stories for the two pictures are now being sought. Under considera tion are a novel by Booth Tarklng-ton, "Forgive Us Our Trespasses," by- Lloyd C. Douglas, and an original story by Rowland Brown, who wrote "Boy of the Streets." "A Trip to Paris" will be the title Df the next Jones Family picture, to follow "Love on a Budget," now in production at 20th Century-Fox studios. It will be the ninth in the series of seriocomic adventures of family life, featuring a casi that includes Jed Prouty, Spring Byington, Shirley Deane, Florence Roberts. Kenneth Howell, George Ernest and June Carlson. The seventh. "Borrowing Trouble," is now ready for release.
