CARDINAL HINSLEY AT THE CINEMA Sees Himself—and Spanish War Film

From Our Film Correspondent

The cinema news-sense brought movie camera-men to Archbishop's House, Westminster, last week to " shoot " the eager crowd of children who came to a special reception by Cardinal Hinsley.

Plans (and they mean buns, where children are concerned) were laid for five hundred kiddies—but eight hundred turned up.
