(By Eleanor Fras^r) Nomination for the best motion picture company name trademark— New Universal, with their revolving globe,; centered, encircled by the name, from which radiate rays of stars—everything twinkling and sparkling.

Same every time, full of pride and splendor. As for showing of titles and credits In a way that will be legible yet will not fatigue the audience before the story even begins, now that is a real problem. (There was some talk of shortening the ordeal by eliminating the lesser names). And there are numerous methods usea. At the Iowa, Saturday, the Western picture, "Durango Valley," had some Interesting aspects, but the method of showing titles was -not satisfactory. One page, so to call it, disappeared off the screen like an oncoming train, while the' next one advanced into the picture from the distance. But consider how the titles and credits are displayed in the Floyd Gibbons series of short subjects dealing with your true adventures. The long sheet bearing the lettering seems to have been wrapped around a huge cylinder that revolves slowly as the film is exposed. Strange, this picture which is not How are your brakes? If you were to drive an unfamiliar car you would probably ask about the condition of the brakes. Yet we often step into our own cars know- Ing that the brakes are not up to standard, and we drive at unusual speeds. Where standards have been set the results of investigations are usually surprising. Often 60 per cent of the vehicles are not able to make a stop from 20 miles per hour n 37 feet. Grease on brake drums, delayed action on all bralfes, and other causes are responsible for poor >rake action. Have your brakes checked ~re jj- u!arly. They should be up to standard at all times. Wnen an em rgency arises you want to be prepared, and jou can not be prepared vlth j-or.r bi tikes. How goo'd a driver are you? Can ou answer this question? only moving, but moving farther from the eyes Instead of in the same plane, is easlcst-tf all to read. Perhaps it is because it does move out of focus that it IS easier for the eyes to read the line or; two which are in focus, * • • So, if I were making a movie— it is a free sport telling the movie moguls how to ao their job—If I were a proaucer, I would want a name trademark as striking as New Universal's, and * would use the revolving list of introducing the picture. Then I would Insist on having a director like Alfred Hitchcock. You have no doubt read that he has signed up with David Selznlck to begin work early next year. (He will be remembered as the maker of "The 39 Steps", "Secret Agent" and "The Man Who Knew Too Much"). Within that provision, it may be hoped that his American made movie will retain the Inark of his genius for organizing and directing a unified production that is expressive of the peculiar medium of the moving picture. It is to be hoped but there lurks in my mind If not in Mr. Hitchock's, tnat he will become Infected with the Hollywood disease that craves spectacular splendor to feed its fever • • * Read the other day the report of the making a picture costing only a few thousand dollars, by the director of "The Informer", which promises to be just as good. Perhaps the ' reason Why "The Informer" turned out to be ft worn of art was the down to the budget with no expectations of greatness. All of which brings us to the subject of "Marie Antoinette." The trouble with such super spectacles seems to be that a movia company when It conceives the idea of making such a picture, must think In terms of making the most superlative creation that has ever come out of a flat can. Scarcely a limit on budget. Gorgeous display Is the watchword. Rereading "Mrs. Astor's Horse," I came across the description of the wedding of Doris Warner of the Warner Brothers family to Mervyn LeRoy "in a setting which made even movie magnates gasp." It took five verses and drawings to announce the birth of the son and heir. It seems physically almost impossible for at least the average audience to grasp a picture built on such a colossal scale If the results live up to the expectations. A feature that runs much more than an hour and a half becomes wearisome simply because it requires too close concentration with no Interruption of intermission such as breaks the tension of a stage play. And a play is written within the confines of its time and structure. On the other hand a movie Is taken with many more thousands of feet than can ever be used and cut down sometimes to size and often with not much sense of continuity and unity, ATTOBNBYS AT R J.
