Cruel to whom?—animal or man? Each year more and more British people, holidaying in the sun, witness for the first time a traditional Spanish spectacle which supporters claim reflects not only national attitudes to courage, skill, and honour but can be calmly accepted at this level without being influenced by its inevitable outcome -the death of the bull in front of the crowd. But to many, if not most, this is a barbaric and brutal display in which a dumb animal is tortured to death. A display in which the spectators diminish their (,wn human dignity by watching a nauseous ritual which owes more to the bloodstained heritage of the early Roman arenas than to a lethal contest which its supporters even go so far as to call an art form.
Henry Higgins is a twenty-four-year-old Englishman, and a bullfighter. Some aficionados (the word for bullfight fans) say he'll be a good one. He has been gored, tossed, and nearly killed. In turn he has already ritually finished off hundreds of four-year-old Spanish fighting bulls His whole life is devoted to bullfighting; both in and out of the bull ring.
Man Alive film cameras set out to discover what sort of man he is, what sort of world he lives in. And in the studio we ask cruel to whom? '

Judy Garland is cast as an idealistic shop girl who carries on a pen friendship with an anonymous young man, not realising that he is an assistant in the same shop. The contrast between their antagonistic day-to-day existence and the idyllic correspondence provides many opportunities for Miss Garland's comic talent and she is ably supported by Van Johnson.
This M.G.M. film is a musical version of the famous Lubitsch film The Shop Around the Corner starring James Stewart and Margaret Sullavan , which wiU be shown at a later date on BBC tv
