Ballerina (Pathe Joinville-Cinatlantica). Brilliant cinema treatment by French Director Jean Benoit-Levy (La Maternelle) of La Mart du Cygne, Paul Morand’s story about the backstage life of apprentice ballet dancers.

Spring Madness (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer). Mildly amusing little collegiate comedy headlined by Lew Ayres and Maureen O’Sullivan and notable chiefly for the way in which Actor Burgess Meredith, hailed three years ago as the Hamlet of 1940. belies his reputation by bringing to his impersonation of a Harvard senior the same mannerisms he used when spouting very blank verse in Winterset.
