Theater Number Four
Headlines Two Thrillers
From its opening scene to its
spine-tingling climax there is ever
mounting suspense and tension in
"Man Afraid" Universal-Interna
tional production filmed in Cine
mascope co-starring George Na
der Phyllis Thaxter and Tim Hov-
ey which opens tomorrow at the
24th St. Theatre.
In a sense it's a chase picture
from start to finish an unnerving
sort of chase in which the quarry
is the little boy played by Tim
The lad is the son of a minister
played by Nader who has slain
a young burglar during a struggle
after the intruder has almost
blinded the minister's wife by
slashing her across the eyes with
a length of rope.
The slain youth's father tries
several suspenseful strategems to
entrap little Tim in order to avenge
his own son's death. At first only
Tim is aware of this and the aud
ience is on tenterhooks until he
convinces his father he is in peril.
Nadar gives his usual expert
and winning performance as the
minister who is conscience-strick
en because he has taken a life
even though it was in defense of
his wife and child and then car
ries a burden of awful fear for
the safety of his little son.
He is given an exceptionally able
assist by Phyllis Thaxter as his
wife. She has to play most of the
picture with her eyes bandaged
and she demonstrates why she is
considered one of Hollywood's fore
most dramatic actresses as she
depicts with moving fidelity a wo

see what is going
on but senses nevertheless that
her son is in great peril.
As to young Master Hovey here
tofore he has been seen only in
comedy but in "Man Afraid" he
proves that he's an all-around lit
tle star by doing this serious role
with an authenticity that adds tre
mendously to the believability and
impact of the story. Another ex
pert performance is that of Ed-

written by Herb Meadow and the
producer and director were Gor

proved they could handle suspense

'Girl In Kremlin9
"The Girl in the Kremlin" the
Universal-International picture co-
starring Lex Barker Zsa Zsa Ga
bor and Jeffrey Stone opening to
night is a real shocker a cloak-
and-dagger film based on the sen
sational premise that Joseph Sta
lin escaped alive from the Krem
lin at the time when the present
Soviet rulers announced his death.
The story involves the efforts of
an American played by Barker
and a European underground lead
er played by Stone to rescue a
nurse played by Zsa Zsa Gabor
from the virtual harem maintain
ed by the Red dictator. They
undertake the mission at the be
hest of the nurse's twin sister
who is also played by Miss Gabor.
The picture starts with a shock
ing scene in which Stalin is shown
watching with sadistic pleasure
while a pretty girl played by Nat
alia Darryl has her head shaved
to the bone. There was no fakery
about this scene for Miss Darryl
actually sacrificed a beautiful
head of blue-black hair to win this
From then on the film proceeds
at a breakneck pace full of thrills
and suspense to the final and ac
tual demise of the Red dictator
in a horrifying climactic sequence
the nature of which it would be
unfair to disclose here.
Lex Barker is a perfect choice
for his role of the courageous
agile athletic and smart Ameri
can who outfights and outwits Sta
lin's henchmen and he has a wor-
the team-mate in Stone who
makes an appealing as well as ef-
ftcive underground leader.
In her dual role Miss Gabor has
afield day for the twin sisters she
portrays have entirely different
characters and personalities and
she establishes each with equal
authenticity. One scene which
shows Hollywood craftsmanship at
its best depicts the twin sisters in
a knock-down and drag-out battle.
Stalin is played by Maurice Man-
son who is aided by a remarka
ble make-up job to give an utterly
convincing portrayal of "The
Beast of the Kremlin." Other im
portant supporting roles are ca
pably handled by William Schal-
lert Aram Katcher and Michael
Based on a screenplay by Gene
L. Coon and Robert Hill the pic
ture benefits from the masterful
direction of Russell Birdwell and

Stuffy says he knows a lot of
soldiers sailors airmen and ma
rines who never chase women.
