REVIEW OF RECENT MOVIE PICTURES Of all the rolllcklngly fanny movte* which have been shown here In the last few months none, I believe. Is funnier than "Bringing Up Baby" starring Katherlne Hepburn and Cary Grant and a certain leopard. It makes you want to read again Max Eastman's book on laughter to find out just what in this zany picture makes you laugh yourself sick. It was just as funny to me as though I hadn't known from having read the story what to expect next. Maybe it was even more amusing because an anticipated joke hits you harder. It is a shame to miss any of the lines. There really should be timing that would allow the audience to catch up before another laugh Is sprung on them. As a matter of fact. I remember one such movie not so long ago. It gave me quite a feeling of satisfaction to be able to enjoy one joke without missing the next one. The more I think of it, the more I think that is really part of the art of creating a movie. It is the same principle applied to a different point of departure, to which I keep harking back In the movie-making of Alfred Hitchcock who made "The 39 Steps" (an entertaining thriller if there-ever was one) and the "The Woman Alone." Sight, sound, story, audience reaction are all balanced with as much care and sujeness as an expert dietitian balances the meals. "Bringing Up Baby" has put Hepburn on top of the heap again. {There had been serious question whether she wasn't out of the running). She teams up admirably with Cary Grant, but then Grant is a success with any star in any picture. Remember Thome Smith's "Topper", with Constance Bennett In which they materialized and immater- ialized at will? And again with Irene Dunne In "The Awful Truth?" And now "Bringing Up Baby." There still lingers in my mind's eye the image of Grant trying to get in a word edge-wise, trying to stem the flood of Hepburn's endless nonsense. The good-natured wrestle between the leopard and George, the little dog of "After the Thine Man" fame. The leopard rubbing against Katherine like a house-cat. Can't figure out yet whether It was faked or whether the leopard had no teeth or claws. The picture, although rather long, is a delightful comedy, well-directed, well-played. It is one of those practically imposible stories which are so excruciatingly funny By Eleanor Fr***r) because they are caricatures of some of the "crazy" people In real life. Now "The Joy of Living" starring Irene Dunne and Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., though not so extravagant In its humorous situations, seemed nevertheless more artificial. Fairbanks is no less polished an actor than Grant. Wouldn't he or Grant make a perfect Rhett Butler for "Gone With the Wind. Perhaps Fairbanks would do better for he has a more sophisticated manner, a more devil-may-care look. Sneaking of "Gone With the Wind", didn't Watner Bros., "Jezebel" steal the thunder from the prospective producer of the former story? Won't they find it difficult to get a Scarlett O'Hara as good as Bette Davis who played Jezebel? That was a fine play well filmed. Except for the striking movie scenes of the Yellow Jack panic which were added to the original play, it was more like a play than the usual moving picture, and consequently more interesting. Fay Bainter, who did such a splendid job of acting in "Jezebel" was selected by the "Hollywood Reporter" as the finest supporting actress In the May previews for her work in "White Banners . Don't miss it, it is soon. * * * "Snow Whlto" offers one a good opportunity for consideration of composition. Almost everyone is agreed that Walt Disney's first full-length feature is a delightful combination of fairy-land and the latest developments In the art of movie-making, although In England youngsters were not allowed to see it without being accompanied by their parents. But it seems to me that there is room for improvement in the composition of the picture—that is, in the way it is conceived and put together. Disney has developed a method of designing the settings which Is realistic to a considerable extent. On the other hand, the drawing of the dwarfs is absolute caricature, and in spite of some simple shadows on the figures, flat, two-dimensional. The queen, Snow White and the prince, however, are not conceived in the same style (with the exception of the queen after she has been transformed), and they are not so well drawn. I still think that "The Country Cousin" Is Disney's best picture in draftsmanship, composition, and consistency. ^ Plillllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllm Will This Be You!
