Film Preview – Bognor Regis Observer – Saturday, 28 October 1950

PAVILION, SELSEY. "WARNING TO WANTONS" is the main feature for the first three days of next week at the Pavilion, Selsey. A light-hearted, fantastic romance, this Aquila film co-stars Harold Warrender and an attractive newcomer to British films. France’s Anne Vernon. Produced and directed by Donald B. Wilson. "Warning to Wantons" is adapted from the novel by Mary Mitchell, and tells the story of the not undeserved but lawful fate which befell a "minx,” who successfully exercised her feminine wiles on all the men with whom she came in contact. Set amid the lovely Estrella Mountains in Portugal, the film features Anne Vernon, who gives an enchanting performance as Renee, the minx, and Harold Warrender as the worldly Count Anton Kardak. The Count realises Renee’s true character, but is unable to resist her charms. Much of the comedy comes from David Tomlinson, as the Count's son, Max and a strong supporting cast includes Sonia Holm, Marie Burke, Hugh Cross, and Judy Kelly. A Western which qualifies as outstanding entertainment is "PANHANDLE.” which is showing at the end of the week. The stars are Rod Cameron, Cathy Downs, Reed Hadley, and Anne Gwynne. Topping one thrill with another, "Panhandle ’’ is the story of a gun-fighter who comes back to Texas from below the border, despite a price on his head, to avenge the death of his brother, a crusading newspaperman. As the artist with six shooters, Cameron contributes a characterisation which is rugged and grim, with purpose and determination in his every act. As the fiancee of the murdered brother, Cathy Downs does an unusually fine job, as does Reed Hadley, turned villain for this picture. Anne Gwynne, Hadley's secretary, who falls in love with Cameron, rounds off the talented cast. The supporting artists will include The Falcons, those eccentrics with Benny Bartlett and Tommy Bond.
