Gilbert Harding introduces three stories, two murder mysteries and a comedy in "A TALE OF THREE WOMEN," starring Derek Bond, Hazel Court and Jack Watling. "THE GOOD DIE YOUNG" has one of the best casts seen in a British production for a long time.

The film begins when four men, with no previous convictions, are on their way to hold up a past office mail van.

During the robbery, however, Ravenscourt. cold-bloodedly shoots a policeman whose colleagues immediately begin a full-scale search... Treachery and romance, in the early-day Indian territory, combine in "THE BATTLES OF CHIEF PONTIAC" Lex Barker, as a ranger, Helen Westcott as an Indian hostage, and Lon Chaney in the title role, are starred in this offering which deals with the efforts of Barker to avert a full-scale war between the British and the Indians under Chief Pontiac. The cinema will be closed on Sunday for the installation of a wide screen.
