(Not for Publication) — Sheepshead Bay in the winter is lonely and isolated, but two who love its peace are Jonah Goodwin (Thomas Mitchell), a gentle, frustrated tailor, and his crony Olaf (John Qualen), a timid chef. Contrasted are Jonah's wife, Florence (Aline MacMahon), a nagging hypochondriac, and his pretty daughter, Stella (Ida Lupino), who is bitter and -resentful of her drab life, and the uninspired love-making of her plodding boy friend. Jonah and Olaf have a little boat in which they fish four nights a week. Towards the big boat they hope to own some day, they have saved $193. One night Harold Goff (John Garfield), self-appointed "Admiral of Sheepshead Bay," threatens them into agreeing to pay $5 a week for ''protection" on their boat. To establish legal claim for the payments, he makes them sign a note for $1000. Unaware of her father's connection with him, Stella meets Goff and is fascinated by his daring recklessness and the promise of a glittering life with him. Alarmed, Jonah offers Stella a trip. The girl inadvertently mentions it to Goff. Goff demands the $193 savings and rebellious Jonah and Olaf drag him to court. Here the $1000 note establishes his claim. That night Goff beats Jonah brutally with a rubber hose. After this, the two gentle people plan his murder. By a ruse, the racketeer is taken out in the little boat. Olaf misses his cue and in the ensuing confusion Goff falls overboard. Jonah has recovered his money and peace returns to Sheephead Bay. Still GP522; Mat 216—30c THEIR LOVE BREAKS ALL THE RULES—Ida Lupino and John Garfield who stirred audiences as the fiery outcasts of "Sea Wolf" are reunited in the exciting new dramatic hit, “Out of the Fog." Lupino and Garfield Star in Dynamic Film ‘Out of the Fog’ Begins Run At Strand Theatre on Friday Beginning Friday, the Strand Theatre will present “Out of the Fog,” a dynamic new Warner Bros. film that co-stars Ida Lupino and John Garfield, the pair who made so great an impression earlier in the season as the star-crossed lovers of “The Sea Wolf.” “Out of the Fog” has a modern setting and deals with the turbulent romance between an excitement-hungry girl and a ruthless young man, determined to “get ahead” in the world, at no matter what cost. An excellent cast has been lined up in support of the two stars. It includes Thomas Mitchell, Eddie Albert, John Qualen, Aline MacMahon, George Tobias, Leo Gorcey and Odette Myrtil. The unique setting for the drama is Sheepshead Bay, a cheap seaside resort near New York. The story begins just after the summer season ends, and the year-round residents of the little community draw together for the long, lonely winter ahead. Two gentle old men, friends of long standing, forget the cares of their workaday lives fishing at night from their little rowboat. They dream of the day when they will have saved up enough money to buy a bigger boat and sail down to Cuba to fish. Their dreams are rudely interrupted by the sudden appearance of a sinister young man who extracts five dollars a week “protection” money from them. Not only does this opportunistic young man play havoc with the lives of the two old men, he also breaks up a romance of long standing. Meeting the pretty daughter of one of the old men, he fascinates her so completely that she forgets all about her steady boy friend, an underpaid spieler for one of the boardwalk concessions. Her new admirer seems to open a vista to new life—the champagne and orchids kind she has always dreamed about. They hit a few high spots together, then to make him jealous, she tells him that a man offered her a trip to Cuba. Pressed, she admits that the man is her father who is anxious to get her away from the man’s sinister influence. She doesn’t know, of course, that her “go getting” boy friend is extorting money from her father. Before he leaves her that night he has her promise to go to Cuba with him. Then he goes to the two old men, tells them he knows they have some savings and makes them turn the money over to him. Driven to desperation, the old men decide to murder him. They get him aboard their boat by a ruse. About to strike the lethal blow when his back is turned, their courage fails. He detects their purpose, jumps to his feet, draws a gun, stumbles and falls overboard into the bay. “Out of the Fog” was adapted for the screen by Robert Rossen, Jerry Wald and Richard Macaulay from the play by Irwin Shaw which had a long and successful Broadway run. Anatole Litvak directed. Lupino and Garfield Most Exciting New Screen Team The newest and strangest romantic team of the year was offered to the public in the recent hit film “The Sea Wolf.” Ida Lupino and John Garfield supplied the “love interest” in that version of the one man scourge of the Pacific. It was a love born of mutual fear and suffering and a love that flared quickly and at white heat, once it had a chance to come into the open. Now this same pair is costarring in a new picture, “Out of the Fog”’ which opens Friday at the Strand. In this Garfield plays a hardboiled, unregenerate gangster but he wears good clothes and has pleasant manners. Ida Lupino, a good girl, who thinks she wants adventure, is fascinated by Garfield’s ruthlessness and his pseudo-sophistication and plans to run away with him after Garfield completes his “job.” She doesn’t know, naturally, that a part of that “job” is the robbery of her own father who is a constant victim of the racketeer. Miss Lupino and John Garfield offer several interesting new sidelights on romantic pairs in pictures. She is a hot-tempered little lady in most of her roles, whether they show her as a “woman of the streets,” a gunman’s moll or a lady in the kitchen. Garfield is a more gentle type of person but packs plenty of punch behind his quiet demeanor. He can be hard and he can be very gentle and women like him either way, as evidenced by his sensational rise to top movie popularity. Perfect Complements Together Garfield and Lupino complement each other perfectly. Now that they are both working for Warner Bros., they may well be cast in the same pictures more and more often. No studio could afford to let Garfield ‘‘have his way” with a girl like Priscilla Lane on the screen. Priscilla is not the type. But with Miss Lupino it is very different. She plays worldly-wise role and can hold her own, on the screen, with any man. They make an interesting pair, do Garfield and Miss Lupino and the public will want to see more of this exciting and dynamic couple. The die was cast in “The Sea Wolf,” and a new screen team appeared and “Out of the Fog” proves that it is perfect teaming. It’s no namby-pamby team. It’s made up of a couple of capable players who can be tough as well as tender, whom the public will accept as something less than perfect in past behavior, but whom it likes because they are apparently real people, presenting real-life problems in a fashion that makes for smashing dramatic entertainment. John Garfield and Ida Lupino. Watch for them!
