AT DINNER THE OTHER EVENING Sid Grauman started talking about “Turn in the Road,” which he bought about 12 years ago after it had taken in $400,000. Sid said he had had several offers for his play, which is by King Vidor, and has a decided spiritual note. He said it had cost $9,000 and he and the stockholders felt it was a flop. Then it was put in the Belasco theater and ran for 22 consecutive weeks. “Now is the time for a play of the type of  ‘Turn in the Road,’ ” said Sid. “It has such a beautiful story. It is not to be confused with John Golden’s play, “Turn to the Right.”
