Words fail mo. I mean that.
I'm afraid to say a durn thing.
Today’s cinema effort at the Mc

in a drama called “Sweepings.”
That’s safe. I mean to say, every
one says nice things about Lionel.
He’s the 1 eir apparent to the
throne of America's royal family.
His work is uniformly good. We
go to see him even though we’re
certain the show won’t be good,
because we know Lionel will be.
Many prefer him to John—I’ve
had arguments about that, but I'd
hate to use this column to do it.
