ii BROOKLYN EAGLE, SUM., 3 AN. 13. 1946 THE SOUND TRACK Two Tributes to the Doughfoot Top Screen's War-Film Library By HERBERT COHN If you weren't there yourself, you haven't seen the war unti you've viewed "The Story of G. I. Joe" and "A Wa'k in the Sun." New sreel releases have devoted extensive loot age to shots of actual battle; some documentary films on the European and Far Eastern campaigns, made for orientation of American forces, have been released for non-military audiences, and Hollywood ha.s built Uthentic-looking sets to re-enact historic scraps that filled our newspapers onh' a few months earlier. But the screen has done nothing before on the war to equal "G. I. Joe" and " A Walk in the Sun " Even John Ford's thrilling PT-boat adventure, "They Were Expendable," doesn't match thein, for neither is primarily a picture of battle, as the Capitol's movie is. Instead, these are pictures of the men who did the fighting intimate pictures that reveal not only how they did it, but what they were thinking about before the fighting started, what they talked about while they moved up to their objectives, how they relaxed during their briel rests, and how they acted during those tense, still moments while they waited for the fatal whistle to send them across an ominous no-man's-land. These are pictures of men. And men make dramn. "The Story of G I. Jix" currently at Locu s Metropolitan, is Lester Cowan's production based on the daily columns of Ernie Pyle, the late war correspondent. It wa.s Pyle. who first discovered that, even in the Machine Age. when war flew on the winss of P-liSs and B-29i or rolled with fleet Shermans, the muddy doughfoot. waiting quietly in his soggy fox-hole, was the fellow called upon when the opposition was toughest. To Pyle, and to others who were on the scene to watch the progress of the war. the glamorless foot-soldier was the ever-ready hero who crawled across the field and caught the enemy in in-fighting on his own grounds. In Sicily. Italy and France, the records support the Pyle contention. And there are few artillerymen, armored corpsmen or fliers, proud though they are of their own outfits and the records they achieved, who would deny the infantryman his place of honor. Prom Pyle's cabled accounts, "The Story of G. I. Joe" creates a husky company of men running patrols on the slippery slopes of Monte Cassino. They are not just figures of soldiers; they are men who would rather not fight. They are men with wives and children to think about at home, men with conscience who are human enough to crack when they think they might be spilling a buddy's blood needlessly. Here are memorable portraits, sketched delicately, cautiously, with fine detail. Here is acting done with such realism that it seems not to be acting at all. "A Walk in the Sun," which had its world premiere Friday at the Victoria Theater, recrosses some of Pyle's territory. It tells of the same kind of men. It loses some of its appeal, perhaps, because it comes after "G. I. Joe" instead of before. I think, though, it is a , better film, technically. Its talk is crisprr, bearing traces of the poetic prose that made Harry Brown's novel a classic of these hectic years. And Lewis Milestone's direction is brilliant, more inventive than that of William Wellman, who guided "G. I. Joe." The relative merits of the two films are not too important. The fact that counts Is that each is a stunning screen achievement, an unforgettable experience in drama. A NEW ORLEANS WOMAN was the cause of it all ! , She had plenty of kiises for Johnny . . but he wasn't in the mood for love!

Pirandello's Play Now Film Drama "This Love of Oura," the Universal drama now at the RKO Albee Theater, Is a screen version of the Luigi Pirandello play first presented on the stage in 1922 at the Theater Argentina in Rome. The play quickly became a success and was rated afterward as one of the best of the late Pirandello's many brilliant dramas. Maria Lctl-zia Celli had the role portrayed In the film by Merle Oberon. Frank B. Averardl, production adviser to Pirandello, who was brought to the United States by the Carnegie Foundation to lecture on Italy's greatest modern playwright, visited the set during production. Averardl said that Pirandello, who died in 1937, was fond of Hollywood films and always attended special showings of the pictures before they were cut and given superimposed titles for Italian audiences. Claude Rains and Charles Korvin are co-starred with Miss Oberon in the screen production, which William Dieterle directed. mz " ij If- w AT, FOX Robert Hutton and Joan Leslie in "Too Young to Know." Bl'Y V. S. VICTORY BONDS AND SAVINGS STAMPS Aclof Ray Coiiins Was Always Busy Ray Collins, character actor, Is a "high point" trooper. As the defense attorney in 20th Century Fox's Technicolor drama "Leave Her to Heaven,, now at the Roxy, Collins plays his 24th screen part and celebrates his 39th anniversary as an actor. At 17 he joined a stock company passing through Sacramento, his home town. During the next 13 years he set acting records, having only a five-week iayoff during the entire period. In 1920 he went to Broadway, promptly became a star in "Conscience" and for the next ten years was rarely without a Broadway role. He starred for Sam Harris. Le Shubert and John Cort. For Belasco he appeared in "The Half Naked Truth." When the depression came he went into radio, doing 18 broadcasts a week. At times he worked 16 hours a day. He appeared regularly with Orson Welles in "Mercury Theater of the Air." When "Native Son" was being cast for the stage" he added Broadway to his radio work. And soon Hollywood offers became too good to resist. ERNIE PYLE (left) and Burgess Meredith, who plays the late war correspondent in "Story of Gl Joe" ot the Met. (BBmpg531 NOW!
