Roach to Film ???lysistrata???

Download PDF for this date

“Lysistrata,” the widely discussed work of Aristophanes which created a furor when presented on the stage a few years ago, is to be pictured by Hal Roach with an all star cast. The mythical story which deals, in a humorous way, with the attempt of the Athenian women to keep their amorous warriors out of battle, is now in the hands of the Roach scenario staff for picture treatment.
