D: John Cromwell. Lily Pons, Henry Fonda, Eric Blore, Osgood Perkins, Lucien Littlefield, Esther Dale. Opera star Pons' Hollywood debut casts her as a singer whose fame leads to marital woes with her more ambitious composer-husband (Fonda). Look for Lucille Ball as an American tourist in Paris.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Alfred Hitchcock. Henry Fonda, Vera Miles, Anthony Quayle, Harold J. Stone, Nehemiah Persoff, Peggy Webber. Unusual Hitchcock film done as semi-documentary, using true story of N.Y.C. musician (Fonda) falsely accused of robbery. Miles is excellent as wife who cracks under strain; offbeat and compelling. Written by Maxwell Anderson and Angus MacPhail.

D: Charles Walters. Doris Day, David Niven, Janis Paige, Spring Byington, Richard Haydn, Patsy Kelly, Jack Weston, Margaret Lindsay. Bright film based on Jean Kerr's stories about a drama critic and his family. Doris sings title song; her kids are very amusing, as are Byington (the mother-in-law), Kelly (housekeeper), and especially Paige as a temperamental star. Later a TV series. CinemaScope.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Rouben Mamoulian. Mickey Rooney, Walter Huston, Frank Morgan, Agnes Moorehead, Butch Jenkins, Selena Royle, Marilyn Maxwell, Gloria De Haven, Anne Francis. Lavish musical remake of AH, WILDERNESS! with Rooney (who played the younger brother in 1935) as the young man coming of age. Extremely good- looking film, with exquisite use of Technicolor, but dramatically unexceptional--and not nearly as good as the earlier film. This version was made in 1946.
