CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Stuart Heisler. Susan Hayward, Lee Bowman, Marsha Hunt, Eddie Albert, Carl Esmond, Carleton Young. Hayward is excellent as an insecure nightclub singer who gives up her career when she weds soon-to-be radio star Bowman . . . and finds herself helplessly mired in alcoholism. This was Hayward's breakthrough role after a decade in Hollywood, and it deservedly earned her her first Oscar nomination. Taut script by John Howard Lawson, from an original story by Dorothy Parker and Frank Cavett.

D: Harold Clurman. Susan Hayward, Paul Lukas, Bill Williams, Joseph Calleia, Osa Massen, Lola Lane, Jerome Cowan, Steven Geray. Atmospheric but muddled murder mystery, with aspiring actress Hayward attempting to clear naive sailor Williams, who is suspected of murder. Clurman's only film as director. Screenplay by Clifford Odets, from a novel by William Irish (Cornell Woolrich).

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: William Wellman. Fredric March, Janet Gaynor, Adolphe Menjou, May Robson, Andy Devine, Lionel Stander, Franklin Pangborn. Two remakes haven't dimmed the glow of this drama about a self- destructive actor and the young movie hopeful he marries. March and Gaynor are at their best and 1930s flavor (captured in early Technicolor) is a plus; screenplay by Dorothy Parker, Alan Campbell, and Robert Carson was inspired in part by 1932 film WHAT PRICE HOLLYWOOD? Oscar- winner for original story (by Carson and director Wellman) and W. Howard Greene's cinematography.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: King Vidor. Marion Davies, William Haines, Dell Henderson, Paul Ralli, Harry Gribbon, Polly Moran. Delightful silent comedy about a girl from the sticks who tries to crash Hollywood--and succeeds, but not as she expected to. Davies' best movie vehicle confirms her comic talent, and offers a lively glimpse behind the scenes of moviemaking. Some amusing guest-star cameos include director Vidor, who plays himself in the closing scene.

D: George Cukor. Constance Bennett, Lowell Sherman, Neil Hamilton, Gregory Ratoff, Brooks Benedict. Soused movie director Sherman helps waitress Bennett fulfill her ambition to become a movie star--while he sinks into alcoholic ruin. Surprisingly sharp-eyed look at Hollywood-- both comic and dramatic--that served as inspiration for later A STAR IS BORN. From a story by Adela Rogers St. Johns.

Enjoyable fluff with Davies following crooner Crosby to Hollywood determined to win him away from tempestuous screen star D'Orsay. Kelly all but steals film from stars. Songs include "Temptation,'' "We'll Make Hay While the Sun Shines,'' and the title tune.

Beautiful comedy routines in one of the Great Man's unforgettable films. Charles Sellon as a blind man, T. Roy Barnes as a salesman looking for Carl LaFong, contribute some hilarious moments. A remake of Fields' silent film IT'S THE OLD ARMY GAME.

Hollywood does right by Dickens in this lavishly mounted, superbly cast production, following David's exploits from youth to young manhood, with such unforgettable characterizations as Fields' Micawber, Rathbone's Mr. Murdstone, Young's Uriah Heep, and Oliver's Aunt Betsey. A treat from start to finish. Screenplay by Howard Estabrook and Hugh Walpole; the latter also portrays the vicar. Also shown in computer-colored version.

D: Frank Lloyd. Jackie Coogan, Lon Chaney, Gladys Brockwell, George Siegmann, Esther Ralston. Entertaining silent version of the Charles Dickens classic, geared as a vehicle for Coogan, who was then at the height of his juvenile stardom. Chaney, that master of makeup, is ideally cast as Fagin.
