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.
The Cardinal—the Children's Cardinal as he has been called—was delighted.
So delighted that he went to Wardour Street to see himself in the news reel versinn which is being shown now all over the country, and expressed his complete approval.
At the same session the Cardinal received the screen commentator, R. E. Jeffrey (whom the Catholic Herald interviewed last week), and expressed his interest in Mr. Jeffrey's film of Franco's Spain.
Both parts of the Spanish war film were shown through to the Cardinal and his accompanying party which included Miss Hinsley (the Cardinal's sister) and a priest, whom Mr. Jeffrey's description as " Sherlock Holmes " discovers TO me, Mgr. V. Elwes!
