Douglas, whose breakdown scene
as Captain Queeg has been given
excellent reviews, began his ca-
reer as a radio announcer and
came to Broadway in the leading
male role of "Born Yesterday."
His film appearances have in-
cluded roles in "Letter to Three
Wives," "It Happened Every
Spring" (which had its world pre-
miere in Ann Arbor), "The Big
Lift," "Panic in the Streeets,"
" Forever Female,1" " Executive
Suite" and "Green Fire."
Corey, who plays the role of the
attorney for the defense, won his
first recognition in the legitimate
theater, with parts in "Follow the
Girls," "Dream Girl" and "The
Voice of the Turtle."
Then followed a number of star-
ring engagements in the movies,
including "The Search," "Sorry,
Wrong Number," "The Accused"
and "Carbine Williams."
Presented here in the role of Lt.
Maryk, Brodie has appeared in a
number of motion pictures such
as "Thirty Seconds over Tokyo,"

"A Walk in the Sun,","Winches-
ter 73," and "Home of the Brave."
"The Caine Mutiny Court-Mar-
tial" is a production of the new-
est type-the so-called platform
theater which uses no scenery
and a minimum of properties.
