Jennifer Jones, a quiet, 24-year-old movie newcomer, last March startled Hollywood by winning the Academy Award for her performance in “The Song of Bernadette.” In her second major movie, “Since You Went Away,” she gives another warm and sensitive performance. She is especially good in scenes with her real-life husband, Robert Walker, from whom she is separated.

No one is surprised that Franklin D. Roosevelt agreed to run for a fourth term, but Life has editorials pro and con.

Gen. Charles de Gaulle visits New York.

The movie of the week is “Since You Went Away.”

    I prefer the 1971 blaxploitation remake, “Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song of Bernadette.”
