Last French Movie Production I
Opens Tomorrow At League

i I

Band Blunders,
Show From


Motion picture production in
France has been completely curtailed,
the dispatches reveal, but the Art
Cinema League will bring one of the
last major films "The End Of A Day"
to this campus with the performance
8:15 p.m. tomorrow at the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre.
The French film, with English sub-
titles, will play also Friday and Sat-
urday evenings. All tickets will be
sold at 35c for reserved seats, and
may be purchased at the Mendels-
sohn box office at the League. Reser-
vations may be made by calling 6300.
Despite the fact that "The End Of
A Day" was being filmed in a time
of stress, the plot steers clear political
issues and is merely a commentary
on the cultural aspects of modern
France. Dealing with the lives of
aged actors in a home for the desti-
tute, the story centers about St. Clair,
a perpetual Don Juan of the stage
who must enter the Home.
Louis Jouvet, famous continental
actor, enacts the role of St. Clair, the
half-comic, half-tragic Thespian.
Marny, played by Victor Francen,
also one of the top-flight French
stars, is another inmate of the home.
In the story he is acknowledged by
the other actors to be a great player
who never achieved public recogni-
tion. Between St. Clair and him there
is great emotional conflict, since the

latter's wife at one time deserted him
for St. Clair, and her subsequent
death was rumored to be a suicide.
Julian Duvivier, who directs the
film, is noted on the continent for
his artistic integrity, which, accord-
ing to Duvivier, suffered only one
lapse. and that was during his two--
year period of activity in Hollywood
here. The director is also known by
students of movie technique for his
distinctive camera treatments, and
the poetic yet realistic quality his
pictures possess.3
"The End Of A Day" was shown for
the first time in this country last
September in New York City where
it was enthusiastically received by
the critics. It is now touring the cul-
tural centers, playing at most of the
larger universities.
Couples Plan New Co-op
A married couples' cooperative
house will be formed next semester

for the formation of this house will
be discussed at a special meeting at
9 p.m. Sunday in Room 302, Mich-
igan Union. All married couples in-
terested in living in a cooperative
house next semester are urged to
attend by the Inter-Cooperative
