Crowther will speak in Sho- walter Audi,tovium on the EW- SC campus at 9:30 a. m. His talk is open to the public and admission is free. "Unt'oettm,aty oy about one out of every five mtion pictures is worth seeing," Crowther says, and 'he should ]Snow. He has had to sR throuh about 250 movies a year since 1940. Dean of motion picture crit- ics and astute chrocler of Hollyood, Bosley Crowther has done much to improve the standards of our movies. In addition, he pioneered the in. troducon of good foreign films to this country. This, in itself, was a major factor in forcing I-Illywood to strive for dramatic quality. Talents Varied Crowther's journMistic tel. ents are varied. In addition to turrAng out a weekly column. for the Sunday Times arid al- most daily motion-picture re- views, he writes frequent fea- ture articles and often reports on ,special motion-picture everrts and ,trends for that pa- per.

He con- stonily urges Hollywood to ac- cept its ptblie responities, and to make films of artistic and lastkug value -- which reflect more honestly the true as'pec f life. His efforts in ts di_ti were recognized in 1958 when he received the first Anmml Award of the Screen Directors Guild for distinguished criti- cism in the United States. He has several times been chair- man of the New York Film CNtics.
