LOUIS JOUVET, star of "VOLPONE" says:
for your magnificent review in
THE NEW YOIKEL
Great Fun from France

CINEMA SEASON ENDS:
Film Version of 'Volpone' Due

;I

T'S been a long, lon -time since any
picture has made me laugh as much
as "Volpone, a French film that
does complete justice to Ben Jonson's
play about an antic miser. The screen
adaptation, by Jules Romains and Stefan
.Zweig, takes a number of liberties with
the Master's work, but all of them
point up the comic nature of his ideas,
and I'm sure that Jonson would have
approved off'every one of them, The
piece has the sort of free- wheeling,
slapstick air that used to characterize
movie comedies in'thedays before they
became articulate and began to substi-
tute dull dialogue for pantomime.
There is also plenty of straihtfor-
ward ribald, and a marvellous grah -
-bag style about the costumes, which.
look asif all .hands had let., their,
sartorial imagination run wild at a
rummage sale. As the miser who pre-
tends to be dying just to see how his pals
,,will act, Harry Baur (whose own death
is not the least of the crimes the Nazis
are accountable for) is the most satisfac-
tory Volpone you ever laid your e%,es on,
and it is embarrassing to think that there
isn't a movie actor in America who
could stay within range of the same

camera with him and not be reduced to
inconsequentiality. The cast that romps
through "Volpone" with M. Baur,
however, is worthy of him. The fine
French talent for making each character
in a film an unmistakable individual is
almost everywhere apparent; in fact,
only Fernand Ledoux, as Corvino,
the gentleman who offers his wife to
Volpone to ensure a mention in his
will, merits a bit of censure, since his
performance isn't quite up to the stand-
ards of the company he keeps. X
could, I suppose, describe all kinds of
scenes that might amuse you, but I'll
confine myself to mentioning a trial
in which a supposed invalid is accused
of rape and a policeran is wonder-
fully droll in his inability to un-
derstand why aniyone should shout
about a seduction in Venice. W~ell,
altogether, "Vol one" is hilarious and
you certainly ought to see it, Besides
M. Baur, the picture prominently dis-
plays Louis Jouvet, who plays Mosca
with enormous dash, Jean Temerson
(Voltore), Charles Dullin (Corbac-
cio), and a pair of handsome ladies
named Marion Dorian and Jacqueline
Delubac. -JoHN McCARTEN

Just so it can hear music it
likes, a radio audience in Wash-
ington, D.C., is sponsoring a two-
hour Sunday program, according
to Associated Press dispatches.
It'll be the first American radio
program to be sponsored by its
audience, according to M. Robert
Rogers, general manager of
WQQW. And there won't be a
single commercial during the en-
tire program.
WQQW, which advertises itself
as the "good music station," be-
gan operating in January, 1947,
announcing that it would operate
under a "listeners' bill of rights."
This promised no more than four
commercial announcements an
hour, no two in succession and
no commercial more than a min-
ute long.
Sponsors Needed Then
The idea was fine as far as
listeners were concerned, but it
didn't work . . . Sponsors were
needed to keep the station going
commercially.
So listeners started sending in
cash contributions to the station
in the hope they would continue
to hear the kind of music they
wanted - classical, not boogie-
woogie. Roberts told the station's
audience that there was no need
for this-that the management
was sure that advertisers would
support the kind of programs lis-
teners wanted.
Listeners Want Own Program
But 95 per cent of the contrib-
utors asked that the money be
kept and used by the station for
listener-sponsored programs on
weekends.
The first such program wentnon
the air January 11. And now
they've had to close the books on
the listeners' symphony, since
enough money has been sent to
pay for six months of the + pro-
gram.
The program comes on with an
announcer saying, "The audience
of WQQW presents the Listeners'
Symphony." It features four ma-
jor works with a 15-minute in-
termission, when a well-known
musical figure is interviewed by
the director of the program.
The television cast for "Mr.
Plummerton Finds the Truth"

will go to Detroit tomorrow to
the studios of WWJ-TV to re-
hearse the video show scheduled
for May 16. We understand that
the Detaroit station has been giv-
ing the radio classes a big boost
-it is building all sets for "Mr.
Plummerton," providing all equip-
ment, and the cast will rehearse
under expert direction of WWJ-
TV's personnel.

Extravaganza of Co/or... Music ...and Youthful Romance!
. . , I

Ben Jonson's "Volpone" will be
presented at 8:30 p.m. Friday and
Saturday in Hill Auditorium by
the Art Cinema League and the
Hillel Foundation.
The Jules Romain-Stefan Zweig
production was the film most re-
quested by students in a recent
poll conducted by the Art Cinema
League. It will be the final Art
Cinema League film this semes-
ter.
Harry Baur, as the rich old
miser Volpone, pretends to be dy-
ing just to see how his "friends"

will act. They immediately run
through their unscrupulous bag
of tricks to ensure favorable men-
tion in Volpone's will. Corvino,
played by Fernand Ledoux, goes
so far as to offer the miser his
wife.
Plenty of ribaldry ensues as
Volpone ultimately goes to an
utter and thorough ruin.
Tickets for the film will go on
sale at 2 p.m. Thursday in Hill
Auditorium. The net proceeds will
go to the United Jewish Appeal.
