A monthly magazine
The Theatre Invades the Cinema
A survey by Gordon Gow
In spite of the problems of adapting a play into a film script, the cinema has always taken some of its subjects from the theatre; while at the same time some playwrights have been influenced by the techniques of the cinema. But. superficially, wide screens have brought the cinema closer to the theatre, and a large proportion of the films to be seen at the present time have been adapted from the theatre-some much changed, some hardly at all.
Gordon Gow examines this tendency and its success in particular films, musical and straight; and he considers what are the elements of a successful film musical.
The programme is illustrated with sound-track from some of the films. and includes interviews with Mervvn LeRoy , director of 'The Bad Seed": Agnes de Mille, choreographer of Oklahoma': and Stanley Donen , director of ' On the Town ' and ' Seven Brides for Seven Brothers talking with Lindsay Anderson

Appeal on behalf of the Elfrida Rathbone Committee by John Watson J.P. ,
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
The Elfrida Rathbone Committee continues the work of the late Elfrida Rathbone in helping girls and boys attending special schools for educationally subnormal pupils in Islington and Finsbury, and befriending them after they have left, through clubs and personal service. It works in close co-operation with the local authorities and social agencies concerned with the mentally handicapped, and its office is a rallying point in the district to which problems are brought for solution. Holidays and convalescence are arranged when needed, in addition to parties and treats.
Financial stringency has hitherto prevented the extension of this work to other parts of London, but openings for it have recently occurred in two new areas and the Committee is eager to take advantage of these opportunities. Funds are therefore urgently needed, as expenses must be met entirely by voluntary contributions.
