This promises to be a banner year
for smart knitted and woolknit wear.
The fashions in dresses and suits
and in clever tunic-blouse effects are
simply stunning, being second to
none that are dressmaker-styled of
gay wools or novelty luxury weaves.
In fact, the big news about the new
knitted clothes is that they have def-
initely entered the very dressy class.
You realize the dressiness and air
of elegance in the new woolknits
when you come across such hand-
some “finds” as a sleeveless fitted
overblouse in chartreuse wool knit.
This charming mode buttons along
the underarm seam in latest ap-
proved fashion. Worn with a nar-
row straight black jersey skirt, the
costume is outstanding. The blouse
has a front flare peplum which gives
it “class.” In suits, importance is
given to boxy and fitted jackets, with
special attention focused on the new
peplum silhouettes. The whole ten-
dency is toward softening lines in
way of ribbed yokes, fitted waists
and self-ruffled edgings.
Cap sleeves and sleevelessness
also declare “style” to the ’nth de-

Ira Gershwin and Kurt Weil are
responsible for the tunes in “Where
Do We Go from Here,” Morrie
Ryskind’s story of a 4-F. Agnes De
Mille, C. B.’s talented niece, will do
the dance routines.
Metro has an answer to this in
‘Music for Millions,” in which Jose
Iturbi and Margaraet O’Brien are
drawing cards. With Larry Adler’s
harmonica, Jimmy Durante and
Hugh Herbert for laughs, how can
it lose? Warners have “Hollywood
Canteen,” also “Rhapsody in Blue,”
the story of George Gershwin’s life.

Green evidently is a favorite with
knitwear designers. All the known
greens seemed to be represented,
such as lime, chartreuse, hunter
green, and a stunning peacock blue.
You know that knitted fashions
have gone elegante when your eye
perceives that this suit or that dress
is fastened with jewel buttons, as so
many are this year. Gold and sil-
ver kid belts also go to approve the
dressiness of the knitted blouses with
which they are worn, as do the one-
Interesting knitted headgear will
top the new woolknit costumes this
fall. The shops will be showing cun-
ningly devised little “jeeper” hats,
and wool bandeaux will also be
worn. Here again the glitter theme
carries on in knitted bandeaux and
half hats starred with sequins. Cro-
chet flowers also are worn on lapels
with a matching cluster of flowers

never one to do
anything by halves, wiped all B pic-
tures off the slate and came up
with two super-films—“Wilson” and
“The Keys of the Kingdom”—which
top anything before attempted in
size, outlay, and big-name casts.
“The Keys of the Kingdom” is the
logical Academy award rival to
“Wilson,” since it is in black and
white and the latter in technicolor,
which makes both films eligible for
the Oscar. “The Keys” also has an
all-star cast, although Gregory Peck
and Rosa Stradner, who play the
most important roles, have each had
but one previous Hollywood film ex-
perience. But they’ve both had fine
In Lighter Vein
With these two films as a sample,
and the B’s thrown into the discard,
Twentieth’s staff of producers has
had some reorganizing to do, but
quick. The upshot is a program lean-
ing heavily on musicals — extrava-
gant musicals that will rival the big-
gest attractions on Broadway.
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer has much
the same idea. It’s going to be a
struggle in this era of super-produc-
tions to see whether William Perl-
Haymes, Perry Como, and both
Benny Goodman and Jimmy Dorsey.
That Lubitsch Touch
Ernst Lubitsch’s main concern
centers about “Czarina,” the sa-
tiric comedy which will be Tallulah
Bankhead’s next. Charles Coburn
has been signed to play the chan-
cellor; also Vincent Price has a big
part. “Dragonwyck,” the story of
the Dutch patroons, is another Lu-
bitsch epic for Gene Tierney and
Gregory Peck. Bette Davis ripens
“The Corn Is Green.” And the sett
up for “Roughly Speaking” includes
Roz Russell and Jack Carson. The
Ingrid Bergman-Gary Cooper spe-
cial, “Saratoga Trunk,” will soon
be seen, and “The Conspirators,”
with Hedy Lamarr and Paul Hen-
reid, can’t fail to please the eye.
Yes, producers would seem to be
fighting hard for those long, long
lines of patrons that bulge the walls
of every movie house in the land.
