Acting Natural Better

Nine of the 12 leading actors

Fred Zinnerqiann says, that no
professional actor could touch.
The picture is "The Men," and
the non-professionals, all para
lyzed veterans, are playing para
lyzed veterans. They were chosen
from 70 who read for the parts.
"When people have lived through
experiences such as these boys
have," Zinnemann believes, "they
are much better able to show that
experience than actors who must
necessarily fake what they think
is the proper reaction."
The veterans have proved to give
better performances than trained
thesplans in scenes that call for
emotional situations taken from
their own experiences.
, Timing Wonderful
"Their sense of timing is won
derful," Zinnemann says, "and
they are helped by the fact that
the characters written are not
very much different from them
selves. ( Vlt's exciting for a director to
work with people who are relaxed

KEYSER, W. Va. (UP) The col
orful and pungent prayers which
Dr. Peter Marshall intoned while
chaplain of the U. S. Senate are
now in book form.
The widow of the Scottish-born
clergyman, whose preachments
were often found a source of well--founded
advice by bickering legis
lators, has published a collection
of his sermons.
It took eight months for Mrs
Marshall to select and edit the ser
mons from more than 500 of her
late husband's manuscripts. He
died last January.
For readability, Marshall often
typed his sermon notes in uneven
stair-stepped lines and to preserve
recollections of his unique and env
pnattc delivery, the volume was
printed in the same manner.

cause the camera picks up every

used to big, broad gestures to get

The ones who can't make that
