ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the motion picture "The Country Girl," directed by Clifford Odets. The teaming of three and four stars in the same film city requires a like submission to the screen, instead of the domination of the personal magnetism of one star which has been going on since the first custard pie creamed the first surprised, face. The camera sets the key immediately with an overhead descending shot of the shabby gloom of a Broadway sidestreet, seedy and rundown as brownstone mansions turned into rooming houses.
