He's home and gone again. Just like the wanderlust character he plays in The Razor's Edge, Ty is winging his way over South America in a shimmering new private plane. The open collar shirt and the slacks have replaced the gruesome garb of war from which he returned last December. The buck private who rose to the rank of first lieutenant and who flew all over the Pacific is recapturing the hearts of his followers. But he won't have to start from scratch because his public never forgot him, not for one second. And it's been that way from the beginning of his film career. Within three months after the fans caught a glimpse of him, he was acclaimed "the best find of 1936". Next to Annabella, aviation is his favorite dish, and he'll talk on that subject until the cows come home. Back from the wars, Ty stepped into a made-to-order role; even author Somerset Maugham admits that Power is the real-life double of Larry Darrell of The Razor's Edge. Both are boyish and debonair; both are sincere, loyal and have composures that calm others; both have long hands, intense eyes, high cheek-bones, deep tans and are just under six feet. Both have charmed graciousness, each speaks French, both smoke pipes, each has traveled extensively and, of course, both are flyers. Who else could fill Larry Darrell's shoes? Why, nobody except the fellow who currently is forgetting war and uniforms and movies while absorbing Latin American atmosphere.
