City Slums, the Sea, Africa-Even New Bill Will Offer Thrills, Comedy and Tense Drama Cagney-O'Brien Movie and World War Tale Are Included on Detroit Fare Ey James S. Pooler If you ever ftt to wondering whether the movie will ever run out of ideas, a!l you have to do ia look over the weekly summary of incoming productions to din-cover the endiess variety of material which gos to make screen entertainment. Just look! Those slum lads and their futures come in for a different consideration as you pet a g-angster and a priest in conflict over what's to become of them. Out of Africa comes a film which took years in time and thousands of miles of trekking to fashion as a document of strange peoples and stranger customs. And, with such contrasts the Jungles of civilized places with the jungles of Africa you also lind the movie men ranging into the air for fantastic material about Martians attacking us and on the sea to provide a talc of uncle Sam's splinter fleet, the subchasers, in the World War. And then there are the customary comedies and thrillers rounding out the bills which bring to town this week-end many of your favorite players. James Cagney and Pat O'Brien are the gangster and priest, respectively, in "Angels with Dirty Faces," which also taeludcs in its cast such tough hombres as the Dead End kids, Humphrey Bogart and George Bancroft. With the comedy, "Hard to Get," starring Dick Powell and Olivia de Havilland, it provides the bill tarting Friday at the Michigan. Dedicated to the slum kids who have to choose between crime and honesty, "Angels with Dirty Faces" starts Cagney and O'Brien out as boys and pals and leads them to different places. It is a alight thing that makes the difference between them at the beginning, but the consequences take on grim significance when Cagney comes back to the slums for vengeance and again encounters his old friend, O'Brien, now a priest. They wage a mighty battle for the future of the boys. Royalty Puts Stop to Film Trickery Irked by Bad Movies Slipped into Benefits LONDON, Nov. 29 The British royal family is in revolt against the current practice of some movie magnates of assuring their doubtful films of a big send-off by launching them as benefits under royal auspices. The trick was to promise a sizable percentage of the receipts to charity if one or more members of the royal family would attend the premiere. The Duke and Duchess of Kent, both ardent movie fans, thus were Inveigled into seeing some of the worst American films imported Into England. The Duke has served notice cn exhibitors that he will have no part in future attempts to boost bad pictures. Henceforth, he told them, organizers of royal premieres must submit their menus to him well in advance of presentation with a synopsis of the story, names of the stars and principle players and all other pertinent in' formation so that he will know what he is letting himself In for pr decides to dodge viewing. Furthermore, he declared, charity will have to be guaranteed a minimum cut of $10,000, the reason for this being that only $500 went to charity after a recent royal premiere had drawn 118,000 at the boxoffice.

Backing up the comedy are such merry folk as Charles Winnlnger, Allen Jenkins and Bonita Granville. " Back to the World War to tell on the screen, for the first time, of the heroic exploits of the splinter fleet, is "Submarine Patrol," which opens Friday at the Fox. Against scenes of battle on the high seas as the splinter boats convoy troops and munitions to protect them from submarines, there's a romantic tale centering around Richard Greene and Nancy Kelly, one of Hollywoods young discoveries. George Bancroft is her father and a doughty captain and lending flavor to the proceedings are such players as Slim Sum-merville, Preston Foster, John Carradine, Jean Valerie, Henry Armetta and Maxie Rosenbloom. John Ford, who produced "The Informer," directed this tale of our last war days. Heading the Fox stage show are a versatile group of performers including Freddie Dosh, mimic; Dorn Brothers and Mary, song favorites; the Biltmorettes, a troupe of adagio dancing girls, and the Rhythm Pals, a pair of rapid-fire steppers. The 16 Dan-sonettes will provide new dance creations. Four years in the making and requiring an expedition that traveled 42,000 miles, "Dark Rapture" comes Friday to the Adam screen with "The Road to Reno." The Denis-Roosevelt expedition went into little-known sections of the Belgian Congo to bring back movies of the most gigantic and the tiniest people on the earth, of strange rites of primitive people, of unarmed natives lassoing wild elephants, of the pygmy tribes capture of antelope in nets and the capture of their women by neighboring tribes and many other things from this strange land called the Dark Continent by the explorers it lures endlessly. The movie has been praised as the best to come out of Africa. The companion movie is a comedy with Randolph Scott. Glenda Farrell, Helen Broderick and Hope Hampton, back lii the movies again, in leading roles. Miss Hampton is an opera singer who wants a divorce from ranch-owning Scott, but finds obstacles even to a swift Reno separation. mm Stimulated by that Orson Welles broadcast, "Mars Attacks the World" will go on the screen Friday at the Palms-State with the melodrama "Prison Train." In this Earth Man-Martian battle, remade from a Buck Rogers serial, you'll find Buster Crabbe, Jean Rogers, Frank Shannon and some quaint-appearing characters battling up In space. It seems the Martians are taking the nitrogen out of our air and using it for death rays which sends our heroes aloft to battle and such weird experiences as taking shelter in a cave only to see the clay walls take shape in the form of men. Fred Keating and Linda Winters are in "Prison Train," which cen ters around a racketeer en route to prison for a long term. His rival vows he'll never leave the train alive. Come gunfights, a prison-train jailbreak, Jtidnaping and murder. That reliable Hardy family, Just about America s favorite assem blage of entertaining folk, continue with "Out West with the Hardys" for a second week at the United Artists. The troubles ' of an old flame lure the judge to a ranch where his troublesome offspring the swelled-headed Andy and the lovlom daughter have some educational experiences. And not the least Important to the proceedings is little Virginia Weidler as the ranch kid who makes Mickey Rooney eat humble pie. As timely as the news from abroad is "Professor Mamlock," which is in its second week at the Cinema. Here in screen form is a highly dramatic presentation of the Nazi persecution of the Jews. The tale centers around a Jewish surgeon, his disgrace at the hands of troopers, his being hauled back to perform an emergency operation on a Nazi leader and his final ruthless treatment. That lavish tale of the building of a famed canal, "Suez," with Loretta Young and Tyrone Power in key roles, and "Four Daughters," with the Lane sisters, Claude Rains and John Garfield, will start Friday at the Riviera, Hollywood, Cinderella, Fisher and Broadway Capitol. Boxers at Club Oasis The Chessan Twins, additions to the show at the Club Oasis, offer a presentation in the manly art or boxing, a novelty in night club entertainment. The twins also have a smart danre routine. Others on the bill are: Jerry Fulton, master of ceremonias; Gonzelez and Sterbenz, adagio and ballroom dancers; A r 1 e 1 1 e Lonrcaux, a dancer featuring the "Can-Can"; Bert Emerson, comedian, and Harry Goodman, singer. King Gets African Epic Henry King, now completing the direction of "Jesse James," will direct "Stanley ami Livingstone." ruitr role ot Hinrv M.

The motion picture Industry, long concerned over the possibility of television making Inroads on its cash customers, was admon ished tonight that the public In! the next two years will become Increasingly conscious of television as a new source of entertainment. The word came from the scientific committee of the research council of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which periodically reports on the progress being made by television in the field of research and experiment. For the first time, the committee treated it as an Invention about to make its social debut and urged the screen industry to view It accordingly. The report reviews at some length telecasting experiments in England, which has pioneered the use of receiver sets in the home. British estimates that between 2,000 and 9,000 sets are in use, are corrected to between 3,000 and 4,000 in the report which describes the number as a "melancholy showing." With television in America to date largely being confined to the laboratory, the signs indicate that it will soon emerge from its cocoon. Telecasting programs, pre sented on a more or less regular basis, are planned after Jan. 1 and more receiver sets, at reduced prices, are expected on the market. The availability of sets and the texture of programs, in the opinion of the committee, will provide television's first acid test in America. "The long experimental phase of television development is about to culminate," the committee re ported. "This does not mean that experimentation is at an end. On the contrary, the experiment now takes on a larger scope, with the emphasis shifting from technical research to economic and social aspects." The committee foresaw no "revo lutionary changes" in motion pic ture production or exhibition with in the next two years as a result of television, but visualized a "vast market for films especially designed for television distribution.' Popped the Question While Rudy Crooned HOLLYWOOD, Nov. 29 (U.P.) Henry Wilcoxon, who popped the question to Joan Woodbury while Rudy Vallee was crooning a romantic number, had an affirmative answer to his proposal tonight. The two screen players said they will be married Dec. 17. which will be the bride's birthday. Their engagement followed comparatively short romance. Wil coxon said he proposed to his fiance while listening to Vallee's band at a local night club. Palm Beach Goes Latin With Tudell and Jean adding their Cuban - American dance rhythms to the music of Don Pablo, Mexican leader and his orchestra, at the Palm Beach Cafe, the new revue has taken on a distinct Latin atmosphere. Mack Home is a newcomer who hasn't made up his mind whether he'd rather play a harmonica or juggle and so he does both. Pearl Mag-ley's six dancers present new acrobatic and solo routines. Amos Jacobs remains as master of ceremonies. MOTION PH'TIBB ATTRACTION WW?

Next to bonnie Scotland, the best place to hear the eerie skirling of the bagpipes is in Hollywood, It seems. At least, that is the contention of William Mathiesen, whose business consists of furnishing the movies with authentic pipers, whose music and garb are as truly Scotch as the popular Highland barley potion. Mathiesen at present is busy supplying a troop of 20 pipers for one of the scenes in Shirley Temple's latest film, "The Little Princess," at Twentieth Century-Fox studio.

These Scots would much rather play than act, which is as much a tribute to their thrifty nature as to their liking for the pipes. For in Hollywood musicians are paid at the rate of $10 an hour when they are recording for the sound track on a film, while when they just act they get $25 a day. These Hollywood pipers do their acting and playing more as a pastime than an occupation. Most of them are employed In other fields.
