Cinema: Box Office

New movies were so scarce in December that Variety listed only eight, instead of its usual "golden dozen," most popular for the month. The eight: 1) Guys and Dolls (Goldwyn; MGM)

2) Cinerama Holiday (Independent) 3) The Tender Trap (MGM) 4) Tarantula (Universal) 5) Rebel Without a Cause (Warner) 6) The Big Knife (United Artists) 7) Good Morning, Miss Dove (20th Century-Fox) 8) The African Lion (Buena Vista)
