Chairs, tailored to break apart when bounced off an actor's bald-spot; bottles that part the hair with a minimum of damage and all the yucca, and rubber, weapons that are available seem to be back in circulation ..once more. And they all appear to be working on the "Magnificent Roughnecks" unit. * , '•' ' •» Mrs John Seefeld Perhaps things were gelling little tame around the Allied Artists ' lot. At any rate, pro duceft Merman Cohen and*director Sherman A, Rose, put their heads together and decided to do a story,'called "The Magnificent Roughnecks." That in itself, is a good start toward inciting enqugh mayhem to break up a sizeable amount'oi monotony. Even the title suggests lovely social possibilities None of these snooty, private brawl /epics. Just a nice, 'fre wheeling Donnybruok, with-all hands Welcome and no holds barred. Just a friendly affair that anyone can step into. And, this story of the happy- go-lucky* footloose and fast? spending oil boomers lives up to the possibilities of action implied by its name. After deciding Ort story, the Messrs. Cohen and Rose started casting about 'or a cast that wouldn't mind jeing cast about. And,- we mean SPECIAL SCHOOL MATINEE WEDNESDAY - 4:00 P.M.

A bit of cheeking revealed thai Jack Carson and Myron Healy were obtainable and comparatively free of sprains, pulled ligaments and Charley-horses, at the time. What's more, these 1 lads both like a little action, are more or less evenly matched and don't stop short in the middle of a scene when onfe of 'them accidentally stops a hay-maker with his whiskers. ' Harlan Haas So much for the fighlin', feud- in', Carsons and -Healys. Sherman Rose now had his story- rivals who peeled off their, jackets at mere sight of each other. Now to choose up sides. Dynamite is only as good as its fuse. Mickey Rooney was hired, issued elbow arid knee pads .together with a script, and became Jack Carson's croney. As Croney Rooney can only stir.,up just so much mischief at j one time," two beautiful als now joined the act., x Harold Von Bank Midnight Show most exciting True-Life Adventure feature!

And, "roughly" turns out to be the right word after all. ALGONA*, SAT.

There's more to the screenplay than .a running series of battles—but ,that:s like taking a good book with you to a Championship Fight. .The story builds up interest in the next-round and gives the gals- a chance to turn in a pair of fine acting chores. We suppose th'afelthis /gives -Jack, Mickey and Myron' enough tune to catch up with a secgnd-'wind, now and then. What's morel it lets the pfop> men •' stack fresh breakaways in • handy places.
