Entertainment Review
The article presents information on the play "Julius Caesar." In no play are the men themselves more impressive and in no play is a definition of man more explicitly sought after than in "Julius Caesar." Both the men and the definition have special value today. The new motion picture "Julius Caesar," is anti-Marxist. It is produced by John Houseman who has gone back on producer Orson Welles' famous "anti-fascist" interpretation to the extent of cutting out all the politics except a dull little lesson on the vanity of dictators.
