The Chairman' For Two Screens De« Moiriii Sunday Remi •' "• "*» .. Section A SUSPENSE plot, "The Chairman," will be the new attraction Wednesday at the Varsity and Plantation Drive-In. Gregory Peck stars as Nobel prize-winning scientist John Hathaway, who goes on a very secret mission for the West into Red China. In his skull is a transmitter by which he can talk to the masterminds of the scheme. What he discovers almost too late is that the transmitter is also a bomb which they can detonate if the scheme goes awry. What the West wants is the formula for an enzyme that is helping the Red Chinese grow food in what is considered infertile soil. The Americans, Rusians and British fear that Red China can marshal the hungry areas of the world against them with it. The professor gets into Red China for scientific study but is found out and flees to Russia, but without the formula. In a surprising and ironic way he does come upon it, however^ The movie was made in Taiwan and Wales and has a Jerry Goldsmith score with Oriental flavor. Anne Heywood, Arthur Hill and Keye Luke have featured roles. A Western For Galaxy •A new Old West yam was not filmed Out West.
