IN HOLLYWOOD Perpetual By HF.DDA HOPPER HOLLYWOOD Tyrone Power is the busiest star In town. When he finishes "King of the Khyber Rifles," he goes on tour with Anne Baxter and Raymond Massey in "John Brown's Body." Then he comes back to Hollywood in November to do "The Long Gray Line," a West Point story, at Columbia, with John Ford directing. Following that he has a picture to do DYING FROM brutal treatment at the hands of a sadistic sergeant, Frank Sinatra completes his fine performance In "From Here to Eternity." Montgomery Ciift and Burt Lancaster, two more stellar performers, are shown with htm In this scene. STAR GAZING People Are Talking About This Movie BY IIELEN BOWER Free Fieu Moil Critic The year's most talked-about movie, "From Here to Eternity," arrives at the Madison Theater Friday. It was filmed from James Jones' much talked-about novel, a Book-of-the-Month Club choice, wherein Mr. Jones is the one who says "This is the army" in no uncertain terms. Many things about' this good movie are already being talked about as the picture breaks box office records. Jones had a good story to tell, so Daniel Taradash needed none of the original's rough language to get it across in his screenplay. Most talked-about member of the cast Is Frank Sinatra as the friendly, pugnacious little Italian, Angelo Maggio, In the prt-Pearl Harbor company at Scho-field Barracks outside Honolulu. Actually this Is a master stroke of type casting. The surprise and gratification come from Sinatra's complete identification with Maggio's character his love of a good time, his cheerful sympathy and his quick temper that leads to a tragic death. Another topic of conversation Is the clandestine romance between Burt Lancaster as Sgt. Milton Warden and Deborah Kerr as Karen Holmes, wife of Warden's company commander, Capt. Dana Holmes (Philip Ober). LANCASTER, A magnificent physical specimen, has already made it clear that he is an actor of like stature. His role as the sergeant with the army in his blood and bones is also superior tyre cssting. His masterful and somewhat beiiig-erent manner as a lover are wholly in character. It is Miss Kerr (with blond hair) who achieves the really amazing character portrayal as a wife who has long known that her husband has been brazenly cheating. Karen's passionate surrender to Warden Miss Bower Is compounded of boredom, hopelessness and self - pity. But through her insistence that Warden must apply for a commission if she is to leave -her husband, she betrays a fundamental cheapness. Aristocratically beautiful v. as ever, Miss Kerr employs a subtlety I've never before noted In her performances. That is one reason why the direction by Fred Zinnemann is being talked about for having drawn from his stars and all the others surpassing performances. PRIMARILY THE story of "From Here to Eternity" is one of conflict between an Individualist and an organization. The conflict has vigor because the Individualist, Robert E. Lee Prewitt (Montgomery Clift), is also an Idealist and the organization is the army. Prewitt, the central figure. Is a bugler who has Just transferred to the Holmes-Warden i company. He has a reputation as a boxer. Clift is the Ideal choice for the role. To Capt Holmes the sports Standing of the outfit means more than anything else except a promotion.

GORDON MACRAE finally got his release from Warners. The same day, Bill Wellman met him on the golf links and asked if he wanted to play the young pilot in John Wayne's picture, "The High and the Mighty." Gordon has signed a new contract for "The Railroad his own reasons, refuses to box, Holmes orders "the treatment" in an effort to break his spirit Every humiliation, every petty brutality is visited upon him. Sgt Warden begins to admire him and Maggio takes him on leave to the. New Congress Club (euphemism for something else in the book), where he meets Lorene (Donna Reed), who later gives him refuge. Miss Reed Is sensational to look at but her manner has about it more of the finishing school than the tough school of experience In which Lorene Is enrolled. Prewitt's fight with the brutal Sgt. "Fatso" Judson (Ernest Borgnine) after Maggio's death is a matchless scene of revenge catlike, sileat and swift Prewitt's sounding of taps as a requiem for Maggio is another kind of memorable scene, and the only sentimental touch in the picture. Maggio stepped into eternity only a little ahead of his friend,-for the attack on Pearl Harbor vivid'y ends the picture except for a final shipboard scene with Karen and Lorene, strangers to one another, side by side at the rail, as Lorene repeats a pitiful fiction about Prewitt Show Time ADAMS "The Bund Waon," 11:33 a.

A CABLE from Italy says that Anthony Quinn had a real-life adventure on location in the Sicilian mountains for "Cavalleria Rusticana." After weeks of negotiations, a Blackhand Mafia chief, agreed to teach Quinn to duel with knives for a scene with Italian star Ettore Mannl, on condition that his presence he kept secret until the lessons were over. After which he took his cash and disappeared, and not even Tony knows his name. And if you believe this, you'll swallow anything. This I saw with my own eyes.
