SCREEN By Jan Corby 'Black Narcissus' at the Fulton, Ntw Dual Program at Loew's Met With the arrival of "Black Narcissus," new British film, n Its newly set-up screen, the Fulton Theater, which used to present stage shows, became a movie theater yesterday. "Black Narcissus," released through Universal-International, is presented by i. Arthur Rank, and start Debormh Kerr, who; A. .... aa Is already known to American " audiences, and David Parrar, who: "Bulldo? Drummond at Bay." Is not.

It's all the story says because the wind keeps blowing. It gets on foreigners' nerves. Interwoven with this peculiar recital of life in a religious community . is a slight story of the youthful scion of the native ruler, who visits the convent regularly to study wlta the much younger native children. All dressed up like a rajah, with ropes of pearls and bushels of emeralds hung around on his embroidered coats, he further disturbs the convent by dousing himself with a perfume called Black Narcissus. The perfume is mentioned only once, which seems hardly a reason for calling the whble film "Black Narcissus." This young scion runs off with a native girl the sisters are trying to educate. Then the sisters pack up and go home. Of the actors, It is only fair to say for Deborah Kerr that the habiliments of a nun are of little aid in putting across a vivid film personality. Ingrid Bergman did it in "The Bells of St. Mary's," but Miss Kerr is not Miss Bergman. David Parrar, presented with much advance fanfare, Is distinctly at a disadvantage as. a guy who bullies nuns. Its an unfortunate introduction of a man who seems to have plenty of acting ability. "Black Narcissus" was written for the screen, produced and directed by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger.

At Fox, With New 'Rusty' "They Wont Believe Me" and a new Rusty picture, "Son of Rusty," opened yesterday at the Fox The ater. "They Won't Believe Me" li a gripping' drama, starring Robert Young, Susan Hayward and Jane Oreer. The story centers on the escapade of a young married man-about-town, played by Young, who, though his wealthy wife provides him with the luxuries he craves, aannot resist other women. In turn he falls in love with Jane Oreer. and Susan Hayward. and his wife, played by Rita Johnson, tries to break up each affair by providing her husband with new interests, including buying him a ranch. Affairs move speedily to ward complete tragedy, and the dissolute husband meets death by police guns. The aventures of a boy' and his faithful dog are continued in Co lumbia's "Scne of Rusty," fourth tn - their "Rusty" series. In it the lor- ' able Mitchell family returns to tl. screen, with Ted Donaldson play- ing Danny and the canine star Rusty, as usual, playing the dog Rusty. ') This time young Danny starts trouble in the quiet village where the Mitchells live when he cUacor- i ers that a newcomer was once In. an army prison. Called an ex-eon- vict by the townsfolk, the new man ts the storm center of the village ". during a series ot adventures which end up in court. Later, the prison angle is cleared up satisfactorily and the whole village learns a lesson in tolerance for others. While "Son of Rusty" wia delight the youngsters, it is the kind of picture that can be enjoyed also by those who come to the Fox primarily to see They Wont Believe Me."
