"ANTHQNY AND ANNA"

A Review

By Richard L. Tobin

Despite Mr. Alan Handley's expert setting, FrancesI
Johnson's sweeping conquest of every scene she's in,
the black-haired butler's red side-burns, and two orI
three pretty funny lines, I'm afraid "Anthony and'
Anna" will have to struggle along somehow without
my commendation. Maybe it was because we sat in
row three and not fifth row, aisle, and, as a result,
heard the not infrequent promptings and miscues
which utterly spoil any normally good show. And
maybe it was just the fact that Act One dragged so
terribly that two and three had too .much to over-
come.
but the net result of last night's entertainment
was, as far as I'm concerned, George's (the servait's)
curtain line in Act One, to wit: "You know how I'd'
handle my women? I'd do like the French say,
'Laudaci, laudaci, toujours laudaci'." And we can't
forget Miss Johnson. Just about when we had given
up hope that life would ever come into the Inn of
St. Peter's Finger, in pops Lady Cynthia Speedwell.
and the tempo rises thirty beats.
The story, reputedj.y not St. John Ervine's best-
God knows I hope it's not-concerns that forward
female, to quote the hero, the American Miss Anna
Penn, who is out after her man and, its being leap
year and all's well, gets him. But it doesn't all
happen just like that. It takes Sir Ervine nigh unto
three acts to get things fixed so that the audience.
is well aware that Anthony Fair is an adventurer
and he simply can't marry Anna because he hasn't
any money and won't accept a job from Jacob Penn.
Mr. Playwright's idea of a middle western newspapei
magnate. Mr. Penn, incidentally, should remove
huge portions of red and blue grease paint 'which
definitely prove him to be a Creek Indian in a white
wig.
There's no use in being nasty about a play just
for the sake of being nasty; and believe me I'd rather
be struck dumb than be accused of writing satirically
and acidly -about a Comedy Club production just
because it's one student trying to be high-hattedly
critical of others.' But the fact remains that "An-
thony and Anna" hasn't enough physical activity to
becomt a hit without real punch in the dialogue, an c
last night it hadn't that. When actors speak hesi-
tantly, insecurely, it's frightfully hard to keep one's
interest at top speed. And when a super-sophistica-
tion becomes a blanket from under which one is
glad to emerge between acts, then I'm afraid the
new comedy by St. John Ervine isn't up to "Rebound"
(which had, above all, Eugenie Chapel's joie de vivre)
nor even to "Streets of New York."
I overheard someone say, when the show was
over, they thought it was too hard for Comedy Club,
was over their heads. "Rebound" was infinitely

The humorist Will Rogers is back
from his tour and has been spend-
ing a few days at the Nation's Cap-
itol. Mr. Rogers remarked that,
"the best thing the United States
could do would be to refrain from
4meddling in the China-Japan ruc-
I tion and stop sending our soldiers
to the scene of the conflict-be-
cause the more soldiers we have
there the more likely they are to
be hit."

Sam that she didn't take part in

The transfer of Secretary Mel-
lon to the Court of St. James proves
a very dramatic move. Mellon was
the last of the Harding-Coolidge
cabinet and his removal from that
body and his duties has been ac-
cepted without an outcry. Such a
move eliminates the impending im-
peachment possibility and rounds
out to the satisfaction of all s-v-
eral difficult situations. Mellon
leaves the Treasui'y with its figures
of red ink to wear the knee, breech-
es in the Court of St. James.
Could we be right in concluding
that Mellon was transfered because
of views entertained in regard to
Mr. Hoover's financial policies? At
least, with Mellon's removal, comes
the report that a bill is to be rushed
through the House and Senate per-
mitting currency inflation. The
current belief is that Mr. Mellon
would have openly opposed any
such move.
