For students trying to survive the mad, forced gaiety of examination period, the silver screen is currently offering several morsels well worth the seeing. Locally, Shirley, Temple turns in a creditable performance which should boost her stock in undergraduate eyes. Although this department can see no relevance whatever in the title, "Just Around the Corner" gives audiences at the University Theatre eighty minutes of diverting plot and catchy songs, of which the catchiest is "I Like to Walk in the Rain." Amanda Duff enables Charles Farrell to make a dignified come-back, with the nimble feet of Bill Robinson and the Bert Lahr baritone helping things out. "Arrest Bulldog Drummond" is a satisfactory companion piece.

Storm signals from across the seas give Hollywood an excuse to present a new version of "Dawn Patrol," first presented in 1930. The war drama, now at the Metropolitan, combines the usual thrills of aerial combat with a psychological study of a junior officer's hatred for his superior. Between too frequent shots of Errol Flynn's frank; boyish face, there are healthy little sermons about "the criminal lunatics sitting around a big table." For although Basil Rathbone does a good job as the villain, Mars is the real villain. The "poor man's war" angle is unconvincingly put forward, but the flying sequences are good. The picture is sans love interest, with nary a woman.
