Qay Blithe Spirit'
By Hugh Collett
Guignol theater opened its 1945-4- 6
season with a bang Monday night.
There is no doubt that the present
offering, Noel Coward's "Blythe
Spirit," Is one of the most finished
productions aver presented by the

little theater.
Wallace N. Briggs, director of the
production. Is to be congratulated
for his selection of the play and the
fine cast he has assembled for its
Mills' Portrayal Superb
Ed Mills' portrayal of Charles
Condomine is undoubtedly one of
the best performances of his career
not even barring his characterization of Rough, the detective In
"Angel Street" and one of the best
pieces of acting at the Guignol

The part of Madame Arcati was
expertly handled by Mary Lyons, a
Guignol veteran, who also tops her
many other triumphs. Miss Lyons
handled her seances and her lighter
with equal capability,
never once stepping out of the
character she so elegently created.
Susan H inkle was equally convincing in her part of Elvira, the spirit
of Charles' first wife, although at
times her "Ouspenskaya" was showing.
A Disappointment
Minna Bloomfield, frankly, was a
disappointment. Innumerable times.
in her part of Ruth, Mrs. Bloomfield
At times, her emotion ran away with her. It must
have been opening-nigjitters, for
during rehearsals she was superb,
and her former Guignol record a
row of successes speaks favorably

for her. When she returned as a
spirit in the latter part of the play,
she seemed to have gained control of
herself, and from that time, all
went well.
Campbell, Pax ton Adequate
Dr. Bradman, as played by William
Campbell, was fairly convincing, although at times his overabundance
of gestures were distracting, but
otherwise. Mr. Campbell did extremely well.
Jean Paxton. who portrayed Mrs.
Bradman, handled her parts well,
and as her part calls for, raveled off
an endless string of words as well as
any tobacco auctioneer.
Margaret McCorkle
Edith, the cockney maid, with great
accuracy. Once again. Miss McCorkle points out her worth as a
character actress and her mastery
of accents (I refer to her success as
Rose, the colored maid, in "Out of
the Blue." the summer musical).
Uncanny Effects
Henry Foushee, technical director
for the production, is to be praised
for the numerous uncanny effects
that he has created and put to use in
the play. Their seeming impossibility adds greatly to the spiritual
air attached to the story. The electrical effects created by Robert
Hume, chief electrician for the production, are also worthy of merit.
"Blythe Spirit" will long be remembered by the Guignol-goin- g

comedy, and the play is capable of
a two weeks' run. ,
If you care to lift your spirits and
see some good entertainment, don't
