Notes of an Innocent Bystander

The Magic Lanterns: Warner Bros., old hands at cinematizing the news tickers, have decided that the Free French need a little attention. Vichy being a villain made to order. They’ve got it in ‘Passage to Marseille,’ another one of their solar plexus punches. It takes the correct line on the question. It gets top-hole playing from H. Bogart, Claude Rains and Sydney Greenstreet, who used to hang around Casablanca, and Michele Morgan and Helmut Dantine…. Other thighfuls garner more publicity, but none fills a set of nylons better than Merle Oberon in “The Lodger.”
