That, at any rate, is what VictorSchertzinger famous director-composer, be- lieves--and w h a t he proves in "t'he Woman Between," his in- itial directorial vehicle, coming to the Ritz tomorrow and Satur- day. "lt isn't the science of sex ap- peal--it's the science of combin ing the anesthetic with the warm er lures of beauty,' Schertzinger declares. "Costume does part of it Pho- tography accomplishes for the films--now that we've learned the science of photographing beautiful girls in groups and sing ly--what stage presentations can never do. And last, the selection of the girls themselves, by beau- ty of face, form and personality, completes the thrilling picture. 'The Woman Between" is sophisticated story dealing with the love affairs of fashionable New York Modiste who is mar- ried to an elderly financier. DAN J.
