LONDON, Saturday: Keiron Moore, who seven years ago was being hailed as a player headed for long-time stardom, is making a new start in films.

He has the role of a blind deaf mute suspected of murder in 'The Green Scarf.' . Ifs a difficult part for the tall, handsome Irish man, but he is welcoming the chance to re-establish himself after several years out of the limelight. Moore began with the Abbey Theatre in Dublin he obtained his first part because he could speak Gaelic. When the Abbey players visited London to stage Sean OCasey's 'Red Roses for Me,' Sir Alexander Korda signed him to a con tract and he scored a hit in 'A Man About the House.' Then he made 'Mine Own Executioner' and 'Anna Karenina' and de cided to try his luck in Hollywood. Several supporting roles didn't add much to his

reputation and he found it hard luck in Britain to maintain his wife and three children. Now he has his oppor tunity in another Korda production. Moore has had to learn the blind deaf mute alpha bet, which has been taught in England since the seventeenth century. He says: 'I'm thinking myself into the character. It's tricky, but fascinating. This is my favorite film part.' 'The Green Scarf' is from a French novel and has a cast headed by Michael Redgrave, Leo Genn, and Ann Todd. ? ? ? A SURPRISE hit in Lon ?**? don lias been 'Lile With the Lyons,' which was first released away from the West End. The story tells the sort of adventures the same group— Ben Lyon, his wife, Bebe Daniels, and their children, Barbara and Richard— have been en joying for some time on the radio, where they are estimated to have an audience of 10 million. Lyon, who settled here from America before the war. first as a vaudeville act with his wife and later as a film company execu tive, had settled for his screen-acting life being over. This new film is his first : major effort since 'Hell's Angels' 23 years ago. He new recalls the £1,000,000 budget of that epic and compares it with the modest scale of the present production — made in 14 days for £28,000. ? * ? ''PHE Weak and the x Wicked,' the picture about life in a British prison for women, isn't just a grim and depressing affair. It has moments when , women may be reaching for their handkerchiefs — especially when they see what happens to a woman whose baby is born in gaol , — but there are also somei good laughs. In fact, you might need that handkerchief to wipe away tears cf laughter t when you come to one comedy interlude, acted by; three stars whose average i age works out at 74 — Dame! Sybil Thorndike, 72; A. E. Matthews, 85; and Athene; Seyler. at 65, taking the! juvenile lead. j Dame Sybil plays a spinster who marries a | wealthy old bachelor for his money. He turns out to be such a tartar she decides to give him a dose of weed killer in his tea — 'one spoonful for each person and one for the pot.' But the plan goes astray and the episode ends with a surprise comedy twist.
