Olympiad visitors are seeing a Holly-
wood a-buzz with activity that
smacks little of depression and the
Many studios are as busy as in
the old days, and it's not a show for
the benefit of visitors.
They probably won't realize they
are witnessing the greatest struggle
of the nation's fifth greatest industry
to preserve its future.
The usual summer lethargy is dis-
placed by feverish activity. Crowds
haunt the casting offices. Produc-
ers are mounting their guns for a
desperate onslaught on fall and win-
ter box office fortresses.
Paramount, under the new leader-
ship of Sam Katz, is in the vanguard
of the attack. Efforts are being
made to have every picture outstand-
. To see Cecil B. de Mille aiound
again, in -his wake a horde of Ro-
man ladies, street rabble, black
slaves, humble Christians, in a return
to the old spectacular days of the
films. He's working on "The Sign
of the Cross." j
The average number of employes
working daily at this studio is 2,000.
Mechanical workers employed have
been increased by 300 per cent over
a normal production period. Four-
teen pictures are scheduled for Au-
Within the next six weeks Fox

will have 16 productions under way,
including "Cavalcade," which means
12,000 days work to be distributed
to extras.
Radio in August will have from
five to ten pictures at work. Chief
in interest is the "The Conquerors,"
Ann Harding-Richard Dix vehicle.
"Rasputin" at M-G-M, starring
the three Barrymores, is another
bright spot.
Al Jolson's "The New Yorker" and
Eddie Cantor's '*The Kid from Spain"
are making things hum at United
Artists. Universal shortly offers
"Merry-Go-Round," "Laughing Boy,"
"The Road Back" and "Gaglistro"
for the job-hunters.
