PAVILION, SELSEY. Graduating from an Australian hospital as a nurse in 1909, Elizabeth Kenny (Rosalind Russell), aged 22, refuses a hospital job and elects to work in the "bush" where she has great success with her unorthodox treatment. Her plans to marry her childhood sweetheart after the first world war never mature, for Sister Kenny's work for humanity, although opposed by the influence of organised medicine, goes on through the years and takes all her time. The story of her work, and the ultimate result, is presented in "SISTER KENNY," for the first three days of the week. "TAKE MY LIFE," which provides the entertainment on Thursday, for three days, deals with the rare but ever present possibility of a case of mistaken identity. Suspense is certainly the keynote of this thriller, and never once does it relinquish its hold on you. The film is, in effect, a race - a race between the inexorable motion of English law and of a woman's desperate efforts to save her husband from the gallows.
