Talent is a more precious and durable commodity. The theater and the motion pic- tares television are drawing dividends today, 20 years after the Group Theater, because of the influence that fine company of actors had on American acting and techniques." iiuggestion and very practical IT'S A FINE alio, I think, a one.
