Cinema: Box-Office Doldrums (Cont'd)

The long weekend of July 4 sent a vagrant wind through the rigging; aside from that, Variety reported unalleviated box-office doldrums. The best draws:

1) Dear Ruth (Paramount) and The Hucksters (MGM)

2) Perils of Pauline (Paramount)

3) The Unfaithful (Warner)

4) I Wonder Who's Kissing Her Now (20th Century-Fox)

5) Fiesta (MGM)

6) Miracle on 34th Street (20th Century-Fox).
