Special Morning Show 10 A.M. (Adm. 25c) Saturday, Nov. 19 If the next Academy Awards include presentation of an Oscar for direction of the year's best bathtub scene, Allan Dwan should win. hands clown. Not that the amazing Mr Dwan specializes in dunking lien lines. Let's just say that this veteran director is a past-master at anything thai pertains to cinema arts. It jusl so happens that Mr Dwan's extensive experience in sudsing leading ladies rccenlly resulted in his filming the best bathing sequence that's been "shot" in a month of Saturdays! * * » On a closed set at R.K.O. Studios the production of Producer Ben Bogeaus' picturi/.alion of the Bret Harle classic. "Tennessee's Partner," Allan Dwan had curva- ceious Rhonda Fleming decorating the soap-bubbles in a bathtub of 1U49 vintage. What's more, in the overall composition this mate-,., antique tub takes on Ihe charm of a sylvan pool, if you'd rather look al props than watch Rhonda. * * * With the alluring Miss Fleming reclining in a billowy foam of photogenic bubbles. Mr Dwan played with special effects, lighting" and camera angles until he had "painted" a breath-taking creation of beauty mi a celluloid canvas.' 1 Sounds easy? Perhaps, but even with the pulehriludinoiis Rhonda, it's a task for an expert. Shirley Temple Randolph Scott m "REBECCA OF SUNNYBROOK FARM also 4 COLOR CARTOONS and FREE Super-Glider Airplanes lo Every Youngster! * * STAR * Soapsuds- just don't bubble up into an artistic froth that half- screens. half-reveals, yet holds a rich, thick texture under the intense heat of sun-arcs for lung periods of time. Just the right amount of glycerine- must be added. Then, compressed air. not too little — not loo much, is forced into the sudsy water. Sometimes a small amount of powdered milk is required to give the mixture a better photographic whiteness. Certain camera-lens fillers may be used lo give the foaming mass a quality of fleeciiu ss. Even the body makeup is the product of many lests and elimination by trial and error. A waterproof 'shading that tints Ihe skin effectively for the cameras, while remaining unaffected by the soapy \*.'ater, has to be used. To a man like Allan Dwan, who has walched bath scenes evolve from their technical infancy, all this preparation is routine.'The early experiments with soapsuds agit'ated by air from bicycle pumps; Ihe countless retakes using various fillers: the trying and discarding of one tyne of light diffusion after another — all have contributed a portion of know-how towards perfection— and all have hem fitted by his advice and suggestions. It was in*1918 that Sylvia Ashton was pholngraphed playing a few scenes in a bathtub during the filming of a picture called "Old Wives For New." A year later. Gloria Swanson appeared in a bigger and better tub for "Male and' 'Female." When this film rude a tidal wave of box-office receipts, as il swept across the country, a veritable' Soapsuds Derby was launched. Like all trends fostered and abandoned by a public with ever- changing tastes, this one ran it.- cnurse. From lime lo time, a particularly artistic sequence would revive public interest once more. Then, everyone would help glut.

Bill Steele, manager of ihe Chamber of Commerce, will act as master of ceremonies. with bath routines until audiences sickened of them. * * * Les V. Wildin A veteran of Allan Dwan's experience has the advantage of having watched this parade of cycles through the years. He senses the approximate interval that must lapse before the public is due to renew interest in a half forgotten trend. Consequently, he can time a revamped approach almost perfectly. He loads his guns with all the accumulated knowledge of his subject and aims both barrels at the box-office. Then, as the bursting jackpot signals the start of another cycle, he gracefully withdraws. By that time he's either occupied with brand new idea or is saying to himself. "Hmm. It's about time they were ready again for an entirely new treatment on their old favorite, the Hmm!"
