Miss Bergner Starring in Film at 55th Street

Download PDF for this date

“Ariane,” English adaptation of the French novel, “Histoire d’une Jeune Fille Russe,” is the current film fare at the Fiftyfifth Street Playhouse, starring the incomparable Elisabeth Bergner.

It is the story of a young university student who meets and falls in love with an older man, and the complications arising from the fact that she invents a history of nine lovers in order to hold him. The plot is light and tenuous, but it demands a great deal of the feminine lead—wit, charm, youth, and an ability for both comedy and drama—and of course Miss Bergner has all these.
