HOLLYWOOD -- Erskine Caldwell, Caldwell, who worked for Warner Bros, on the screen play of "Mission to Moscow," didn't even suspect until a year ago that he was a Russian capitalist--in roubles, of course. Some of his short stories and some of his 17 books had been translated into Russian and distributed distributed widely in the Soviet Union by the government-owned publishing publishing house. Because the U. S. S. is not affiliated with the International International Copyright union, Caldwell's interest, until his visit to Moscow, was entirely academic and in no sense pecuniary. Out of curiosity to see what Russians had done with his works he visited the publishers and was amazed to discover that he had bales of roubles to his credit on the books of the government firm. Despite the American impressions impressions that money is unimportant in the soviet system, the Russians had been scrupulously careful to deposit to his credit every kopeck due Caldwell under the scale of royalties provided in the international international agreement. All of the writer's expenses during during his eight exciting months in Russia were met by drafts on his accumulated royalties -- including living expenses at Moscow's best hotel for himself and his then j wife, Margaret Bourke - W h famed photographer; the purchase of an American car; wages for Chauffeurs and secretaries, not to mention the expense incurred in his wide travels throughout the country. When Caldwell left Russia he made arrangements that the money due him be given to the soviet relief organizations. Besides you can't take it out. Robert Armstrong has received a letter from a cousin in a German German prison camp. The cousin was captured in the Canadians raid of Dieppe. The letter, which came "luftpost" airmail, had been passed by the German and United States censors without a single word deleted. deleted. In it the prisoner recalls his meeting with the Robert Armstrongs Armstrongs "i'n the cool of a California evening on the patio of n valley hacienda." He refers to seeing die beside him. He promises, all this horror is over, to tell tale or two." Begging for letters from home, he explains that "it is a little grim, and a line or two from one loves can make the weight days and weeks of stagnating inactivity inactivity so much easier to bear." If you think it's all glamour be a. movie star, listen to Miss Louis Albritton's fate. She has sworn off all dates for the next thirty days. That's the reason her telephone jingles every night without without being answered. She is playing the biggest role of her career with Diana Barrymore and Robert Paige in "Fired Wife," and she wants nothing to interfere with success. "In the picture's thirty- day schedule, I work every day one," said Miss Albritton. "I never get home before seven-thirty p. After dinner I study my script nine p. m, then turn out the lights." Michele Morgan, after two years of intensive study, has learned to speak the English language without without a trace of accent. So now she's to do a movie wihich requires her to use a French accent in Tickets to London." But Michele still has trouble in using American expressions. For she told her stand-in she had been shopping and had bought a "beautiful set spread-beds." She meant bedspreads bedspreads of course. Once she told the gardener to "shave the lawn.' And she loves her home because of the patio. "I have such beautifu! crying trees," she says. Her trees it turns out are "weeping willows." But give Michele time. And that's Hollywood!
