PAVILION. SELSEY " THE STORY OF GILBERT AND SULLIVAN," a Technicolor production. gives an insight to the life and work of the famous partnership which produced the immortal comic operas. Robert Morley portrays Gilbert, and Maurice Evans takes the part of Sullivan. Despite the continued success of the partnership. the personal relationship of the two men becomes increasingly discordant. but this serves to make the film all the more interesting. Musical excerpts are heard from all the main operas, many famous singers taking part. Peter Finch takes the role of Richard D'Oyly Carte, founder of the Savoy Theatre. Eileen Herlie, Dinah Sheridan and Wilfred Hyde White are also starred. The film is showing on Monday and Tuesday, with a matinee at 2.30 on Monday. The theatre will be closed on Wednesday night for rehearsals, In an effort to present something entirely different in the way of entertainment. the Pavilion will stage a live show for the second half of the week when Bognor Regis and District Magic Circle present an original magical revue, " HERE'S MAGIC," with a large cast including eight magicians. a ventriloquist, dancing girls and orchestra. The revue has a happy blend of comedy. magic illusions. dancing, mystery and music. There will be a special children's matinee at 3 p.m.
