From the Pit

At the U. T.

The U. T. is indulging itself in four whole days of decent movies this week. Beginning today and running through Saturday, the management will present eight films, two a day, ranging from eminent oldsters to recent box-office successes.

Today "Lost Horizon" and "Holiday" form the bill. The first, a screen adaptation of James Hilton's novel, stars Ronald Coleman, and deserves its recall and its reputation as an exciting adventure film. "Holiday" is a Phillip Barry show with Katherine Hepburn and Cary Grant handling the lead light comedy roles.

Friday brings "Blue Skies," where Bing Crosby sings, Joan Caulfield looks nice, and Fred Astaire dances. Ingrid Bergman in "Adam Had Four Sons" may save this bill a little.

Jimmy Stewart and Jean Arthur make two appearances during the period--once tomorrow in "You Can't Take It With You" and again Saturday in "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington." These two Frank Capra comedies are probably the week's most enjoyable offerings. With them go "The Invaders"--Raymond Massey, Lawrence Olivier, and Leslie Howard dealing with a German submarine invasion--and "Welcome Stranger," termed "a warm and human tale" by the management, which probably found the money brought in by Crosby, Caulfield, and Barry Fitzgerald the most warm and human element in the whole thing.
