PAVILION, SELSEY. The greatest love story of all time, "JANE EYRE" comes to the screen of the Pavilion on Monday for three days. Since Charlotte Bronte's celebrated romance was first published it has appeared in dozens of editions and has been a continuous best-seller. Now on the screen, the story of Jane Eyre, with no home, no family, who has known only the cruelty of women and the meanness of men, comes to life. Jane's path crosses that of a man whose passionate life has been spent in search of true happiness. Sweeping through the whole range of human emotion, through passion and tenderness, laughter and sadness, terror and placidity, the romance of Jane Eyre (Joan Fontaine) and her lover, Edward Rochester (Orson Welles), reaches a thrilling climax—and then a grim secret out of the past tears Jane from his arms. Danny Miller (Larry Parks) is rehearsing a Broadway musical show "The Nine Muses Of Ancient Greece," the leading figure being that of Terpsichore, a "goddess." Danny wants the character played as a modern, man crazy girl. The real Terpsichore (Rita Hayworth) is furious and asks a Mr. Jordan (Roland Culver) to arrange transportation through Messenger 7013 (Edward Everett Horton) for her to come "DOWN TO EARTH," the Technicolor musical to be presented on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
