Still HF 3 Still HF 24; Mat 212—30c THE WIRES BURN—as Ann Sheridan and George Brent make love by phone in "Honeymoon For Three," the Strand's smart new comedy hit, which starts a second week at that theatre on Friday. Rhumba Queen at Work Lovely Ann Sheridan, who does numerous love scenes with George Brent in Warner Bros.’ “Honeymoon For Three,” discovered that she was also to dance the rhumba (her favorite pastime) in the picture. Which is said to have prompted her to remark: “All this and_ the rhumba too!” ‘Oscar’ Winner Lenses Film Ernest Haller, the Academy award winning cinematographer who photographed Ann Sheridan so stunningly in “It All Came Too,” also lensed the red haired star in ‘Honeymoon For Three,” her new Warner Bros. picture with George Brent. “Honeymoon For 3” Stays Second Week at Strand The Strand’s happy new comedy hit, “Honeymoon For Three,” which been pulling in record crowds at the theatre all week, will be held over for a second week, starting Friday. Ann Sheridan and George Brent are co-starred in the racy story of a novelist whose favorite subject is women, and the secretary who finally straightens him out. Also featured in the cast are Charlie Ruggles, Osa Massen, Jane Wyman, William Orr, Lee Patrick, Walter Catlett and many others. Lloyd Bacon directed the production. Earl Baldwin wrote the screen play from the play by Allan Scott and George Haight. George Brent Happy About Comedy Role In ‘Honeymoon’ George Brent has just had the time of his life. It’s not entirely because he was being kissed, soundly and frequently, by Ann Sheridan and Osa Massen. A return to comedy was partly responsible. Brent got that, along with the kisses, in his new Warner Bros. film, “Honeymoon For Three.” He seemed to enjoy one as much as the other Kisses and comedy comprise an appealing combination to any actor, just now, Brent admits. To him it was especially satisfying. In the first place, he’s had a long siege of heavy drama and roaring melodrama. In the second, he cut his acting teeth on farce comedy roles and they’ve always been his favorites. In years of trouping with stock companies, Brent learned every trick of the trade of playing for laughs. He learned the niceties of split-second timing and the intricacies of reaction. He also learned when to mugg and when to play straight. About the time he mastered the multiphased technique until it had become instinct, he found himself a romantic movie hero. He didn’t have much use for most of what he had spent years to learn. In his role of a novelist who finds himself caught between the fire of an old romance and the flame of a new one in “Honeymoon For Three,” Brent again found use for his favored technique. He timed his lines, dodged his kisses (at least some of them) and gauged reactions the way a seasoned boxer slips punches. And he was as happy as a kid with a new baseball bat. NothingMuchEver Happens to Ann Sheridan! Nothing exciting ever happens to Ann Sheridan. She says so herself. She said it one day on the set of “Honeymoon For Three,” the picture coming to the Strand Friday. A few hours earlier she had collaborated with George Brent in setting a new world’s long movie kiss record. About the time the 56.2 osculation was being kissed into the record book, a 15 ton truck arrived in Hollywood, plastered with autographs and life size portraits of Miss Sheridan. It had been driven cross country all the way from Kansas City, Mo. A lot of young ladies would also consider being spanked— and kissed—by James Cagney pretty exciting. Miss Sheridan has had both experiences in the course of her “uneventful” life. Then there was the “oomph girl” coronation in which a jury of -men-about-town and beauty connoisseurs voted Miss Sheridan the young lady with most of what it takes to step up the masculine pulse rate. Faced with all the evidence, Miss Sheridan admitted it sounded pretty exciting. She’d backtrack in memory while loafing and sunning during her Honolulu vacation and see if she could recapture the thrills. Was that all she intended to do on the vacation? Well, that was all she expected to do. Hadn’t she said nothing exciting ever happened to her? Of course not! PERSONALS ANN SHERIDAN— the girl they had to coin a new word to describe ...
