JOANN MAGAHA, Notary Public Thur.. Fri. - Sat., Jan. 13 - 14,15 Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton are as explosive a box- office team as exists in the film world today, so it is obvious that the film has a great deal going for it right from the start. It shapes up as a natural for the ladies, and enough of Talyor is exposed to attract the menfolk as well. The conflict raging inside a man of the cloth as he is drawn into an extra-marital affair is handled with taste and style but may still upset some theatregoers. Filmed in Metrocolor.

Mort. - Tue., Jan. 16- 17.18 Thrills galore alternately race and creep across the wide screen, revealing the details of a little known operation during World War II which conceivably could have been a factor in changing the scheme of things in favor of the Allies. Brave secret agents are followed as they thread their way through a maze of plots and counterplots. What emerges i~ a suspenseful and superior film ad- venture that should please fans of this type of release.
