tl each cshchquPO for i- against backgrounds rich In natural beauty and stage spectacle If we see more of Lafcadio Hearn's and Loti's Japan than of the industrial nation which has just snatched Britain's lead in shipbuilding the picture may be highly selective but is still recognisable Mr Brando with dead-pan face and flat Southern accent gives the Major a quiet strength and laconic wit the curiously named Red Buttons a TV comedian is first-rate as Kelly and Patricia Owens Martha Scott James Garner and Kent Smith do well as the other Americans Miiko Taka of American-Japanese descent plays the actress with delicacy and distinction and Miyosht Umeki makes an endearing little figure of wife Journeying Boys Take an appealing child or two set them on their travels and you go too far wrong Escapade in Japan tMetropole New Victoria tomorrow) lacks the comic invention of Gene The Happy Road but it will do The story tells of a ix-year-old American picked up by a Japanese fisher family after a plane disaster and his friendship with Hiko an older Japanese boy Hiko unwittingly is the cause of all the trouble When the fishing boat gets back to port he hears that police are looking for the American boy and as police mean trouble suggests they should run away They will find their own way to the family in Tokyo somewhere beyond the mountain that is the frontier of Hiko's world Their adventures are told against backgrounds of lovely countryside and busy streets a big music-hall that makes our Palladium look drab a honky-tonk with striptease and by way of climax a rescue on top of a towering pagoda all magnificently photographed The leading players are Cameron Mitchell Teresa Wright and Jon Provost but the Japanese politely walk away with the picture Director Arthur Lubtn Impression of a Family The Unvanquished (Academy winner of the Grand Prix at last year's Venice Festival carries on the story of the Indian family begun In 44 Pather The mood is wistful and elegiac the method is impressionist the music has a dying fall The result is something suggesting (in Western terms) a Sickert realisation of a story by George Gissing There is again no plot and little exterior conflict Bibhutibhusan Bandapaddhava the writer and Satyajit Ray the director rely wholly on inner tensions revealed by a slow careful exposition of the gulf between dreams and reality family ties and youth's ambitions a widowed mother's longing for her love and companionship and his departure for the wider atmosphere of Benares Inevitable Tragedy The boy possibly because of my dependence on sub-titles seems to me less sympathetic than he is meant to be His long silences his habit of lying in bed too bored to acknowledge his devotion and attentions his neglect of the ordinary courtesies when addressing her and his grandfather are in curious contrast to the exquisite politeness of the Japanese in the films THE producers of SayonarR (Warner are not inclined to sell It short Its we read included Academy award winner Marlon Brando Pulitzer Prizewinner Joshua Logan of Broadway-Hollywood fame as director story adapted by Paul Osborn from the best-selling James novel and production by William described simply as a genius So many diverse talents generally cancel each other out The odd thing about Sayonara is that while claims to epic quality are Inflated it really is in its romantic glossy way a highly expert job The title prepares you for a variation om a familiar theme but even here one is agreeably surprised The ingredients American officer Japanese charmer romance impeded by obstacles of race creed manners and duty are the same but time and events have given the theme more urgency the camera offers beauties scenic and personal denied to the stage and the operatic soprano Mr Michener tells his story on two levels Major Lloyd Gruver is an ace pilot of the Korean war the son of a general the flanc of another general daughter Joe Kelly is a private from the slums with no family and a background of insubordination Four Ill-Starred Lovers Both fall in love with Japanese girls Kelly stubbornly resisting pressure and advice including Major marries his sweetheart The major captivated in turn by a Japanese actress realises miserably that he is causing unhappiness to his fiancee and acute embarrassment to superiors who frown on 44 fraternisation with indigenous female When the private is ruthlessly ordered to fly back to America and leave his pregnant wife they die together The major and his girl have the courage and the luck to win through The and the aruat's first duty he convince her is to be a good human being A story sometimes poignant and always pleasing to the eye is told As'-ynatum in Jiiltin Marlon Hrando and Mi ko Taka in Savonara Variations THERE must be a good number of sanguine people connected with the arts who compliment themselves not perhaps on being irreplaceable but at least on having only flesh and blood rivals to face Automation they feel does not threaten their particular contract of employment Until last week I should have counted myself among these too complacent folk But now I am badly shaken by Frau Zillner the archentante (or fairy -tae aunt) of the Austrian Radio who has made a boast that may well take the wind out of periodical writers' sails It seems that in Vienna if you dial 1560 you will hear Frau voice reading a fairv story and I have not repeated myself once in five years" she says If you buy The Daily Telegraph on Saturday I ask myself nervously can you be sure of reading in the World of Music column something that you have never read before not during the past five years but even the past five months?

He loves his mother in his fashion and grieves sincerely when he learns that she has died alone Yet he will neither please her by showing his love while she is alive nor stay for the funeral rites when she is dead He can perform them he says in Benares his examinations will not wait All in all a tragic view of life if a process of birth decay and dissolution as inevitable as the seasons can be called tragedy Mr Ray is now completing his third film about this family If as good as the first two the trilogy will deserve to rank not so far below Gorky series and lusty poetic evocation of Provence Creaking Tumbril A Tale of Two Cities was last filmed in 1936 with Ronald Colman as Sydney Carton Isabel Jewell as the little girl who goes to the guillotine holding his hand and Basil Rathbone as the aristocrat who ran over a child and rebuked the weeping parent with 44 Your wretched brat might have Injured a very valuable Now there is a new British version at the Odeon Leicester Square adapted by Clarke directed by Betty Box It reminds us again that Dickens was a caricaturist of genius but a caricaturist The vehicle creaks and lumbers on It never carries conviction Not that the film lacks talent Dirk Bogarde endows Sydney Carton with the right mixture of cynicism and chivalry Dorothy Tutln a charming Lucie Stephen Murray gives us a Dr Manette restored in one dissolve from doddering amnesia to brisk professional competence Christooher Lee makes the lecherous St Evremonde elegantly sinister and Rosalie Crutchley pulls out all the stops as Madame Defarge The Happy Mourner If you like a thriller and who I recommend a goodish specimen at the Rialto Family Doctor is concerned with a practitioner in Devon whose quick turnover in rich wives has excited sympathy but no suspicion Except of course in the young American who comes around asking questions just in time to save a nice young thing from making a fatal error Writing and direction are smooth the acting excellent Marius Goring plays the doctor with the Rolls-Royce and taste for antiques Rick Jason a likable American of whom I should like to see more is the Lochinvar from the West and Lisa Gastoni makes an attractive patient Producer John Gossage writer-director Derek symbols intellectually constructed and emotionally determined And the basis of all musical form is repetition the reviewing of the same material in ways which range from identical note-for-note reiteration to the most far-fetched variations in which rhythm melody and harmony appear completely transformed Even the greatest range of ideas is comparatively small and many of these will bear an Indefinable resemblance to each other like the children of the same father And that in fact is what they are children or repetitions of a single character temperament and individuality All extended music is in fact a form of variation and so perhaps Frau boast is not so alarming as it first seemed to put it right and at the halfway mark they loyally all changed over At Drury Lane last week Tullio Serafln brought down his baton for lhp anthem and was understandably taken a5ack to find the orchestra beginning Turandot

the kitchen garden or elsewhere and transplant them carefully to their flowering quarters when their buds begin to show colour Rest for Specimens OWNERS of heated greenhouses or frames with electric soil-heating cables who maintain collections of these early chrysanthemums can start their stock plants into growth straight away to produce young shoots for cuttings which without question make the best i plants for specimen blooms If heat is not available it is best to delay taking the cuttings until at least the i middle of March I am starting my stock plants in the frame adjoining the warm green-! house When the shoots are about 3in long they will be severed just below a leaf node the bottom leaves trimmed off the cuttings inserted in shallow boxes of vermiculue and stood on the staging of the greenhouse If kept moist they should root freely but must then be potted quicklv as the vermiculite is sterile Alternatively they can be inserted in a mixture of equal parts sterilised loam peat and sharp sand This will lake slightly longer for rooting but there will be less need for haste in potting them on If you wish to start a collection there are two ways of doing it: by buying cuttings which you yourself or by ordering young plants for delivery in time to set them in the open ground in late April or early May The latter are of course less troublesome and consequently more expensive In any case you should order the plants straight away so that the nurseryman can earmark the cuttings needed Three Types border chrysanthemums are classified according to the shape of their blooms the incurved closely ii ring of si looser and the reflexed in which the florets fold outwards A good representative selection should include all types Large incurved varieties I favour specially are the silvery lilac John Woolman crimson-scarlet Ashover Atom white Ermine and Vera Lynn yellow Sweet Melody and Shirley Cream Of the incurving type for big specimen blooms I am ordering the magnificent Westfield Bronze white Evelyn Bush Golden Fleece silvery pink Maid Marion red-bronze Pauline Whetton bronze Bill Riley and its red counterpart or sport" With smaller blooms good varieties are the satiny pink Amy Shoesmith purple Alfreton Yeoman yellow Lucky Star orange-bronze Invicta and rose-lilac Zest The reflexed chrysanthemums form the biggest section and there is a wonderful range to choose from For this season I have chosen the large-flowered Actress bright pink Sultan red: Golden Age Kathleen Doward salmon-peach Peter Shoe-smith orange-bronze Pink Pride Supersonic rich crimson-scarlet: and White Wings For a few mediumsized blooms of thus type to complete the collection my list includes pink Sylvia Riley golden Joseph Johnson amber Covent Garden

bath water is also the source of drinking water When the fog was followed by a bright crisp morning all the birds were bathing vigorously rapidly emptying the containers of water Once refilled these were quickly emptied again In fact 20 gallons of water had to be carried to the aviaries by the time the washing frenzy was over greenhouse heater HIRDS are fastidious about keeping their feathers in condition They show this by constant preening and by their addiction to bathing But while cleanliness may be the result it seems that there is more to it than this Preening and more especially bathing may be indulged from mere pleasure Some birds will bathe in the rain and when they do so they seem to be seized with an ecstasy Another peculiarity is that contrary to what we might expect they bathe more in cold weather than in hot I have noticed thus in wild birds and it is certainly true of the two dozen aviary birds we have in the garden Another unexpected observation came last week during a period of fog Every morning six gallons of water are needed to replenish the bath water in our dozen aviaries Even if the water is not splashed out it becomes soiled in one way or another During three
