3 SCREEN By Herbert Cohn 'Leave Her to Heaven' Arrives at Albee; Strand Shows 'Dakota,' 'Boston Blackie' A dramatic portrait of a venomous woman occupies the screen of the RKO Albee Theater. "Leave Her to Heaven," the story of a Scarlett O'Hara of Bar Harbor, conceived by Ben Ames Williams and filmed with only minor changes under John status direction arrived at the borough theater yesterday. It Is an exciting screenplay, if you are willing to overlook the illogical qualities of its "heroine." For the most serious criticism that can be leveled at "Leave Her to Heaven" is that its Ellen Berent Harland, a jealous vixen who tortures, murders and, commits suicide to possess the man she loves, is a figure out of a wild nightmare. Mr. Williams sketched her that way, and his book was a best-seller for months. Gene Tierney plays her authentically, and her film is a hit that broke all records at the Toxy Theater. That she is an unlikely person must, therefore, not count too heaily. This Is Ellen's story: Having won Richard Harland, a promising young author, she vows never to release down a flight of stairs so that she need not bear the child she fears will share the love Eichard has for her, and when she suspects that her husband is attracted by her foster sister, Ellen poisons her own tea and allows the suspicion of murder to fall upon the girl. Miss Tierney has the dramatic plum in "Leave Her to Heaven" and plays it earnestly. Her supporting cast, though, Including Cornel Wild as Richard, Jeanne Crain as the unhappy sister, and Darryl Hickman as Richard's crippled brother, are equally artful. And Vincent Price, In the brief role of the prosecuting attorney, does a magpificent acting job, A Leon Errol featurette, "Maid Trouble," completes the Albee's bill.

It is below par for movies of its type, despite a few lively fights and a spectacular fire.
