That way, I felt more 'comfortable' in the role." * * * Nancy Anderson has discovered that off-beat, eccentric characters can be found in any ago group. More, by creating roles that are "different" without benefit of makeup, tricks, the aid of such props as canes and hearing-aids or the assistance of special wardrobe, she is displaying her fine talents more fully. To paraphrase the old mother* in-luw consolation bit — Hollywood hasn't lost a creative collection of cranky, cantankerous caricatures and a grand group of garrulous Grandmas. It has GAINED a bevy of beautiful but befuddled beat nick babes! Local Church Names Officers For New Year New officers for the First Methodist church were elected at the quarterly meeting May 2.

She came to Hollywood hoping to become famous portraying "old-ladies!" Nancy Anderson, who played an 18-year-old girl in a recent segment of Robert Taylor's "The Detectives" series on ABC-TV Network, would have preferred 10 play Robert Taylor's mother! » » <. It seems lhat Nancy studied dramatics in her home town, Milwaukee, the Goodman Theater in Chicago and the Cleveland Playhouse and hus also appeared with summer stock companies in New York, Minnesota and Arizona. During that time she was invariably cast in every old-lady part that came along. Far from objecting to having her -pretty features submerged beneath layers of "aging" makeup, Miss Anderson was quit<* happy playing' these character roles, They provided a showcase for her histrionic ability. * * * To this ambitious girl, being a "pretty - young - thing" onstage seemed hardly a true test for the acting talents of a "pretty-young- 1 thin^" in real life. Though doinj; "little-old-ladies," from bustlinr busybodies to cranky grande- 'dames, are not easily conceived characterizations for the average young actress, the roles offered a challenge to Nancy. She took 'em in stride, or should we say "in doddering totter?" A few years ago, Miss Anderson decided to try the motion picture field. Soon after her arrival in Hollywood, she learned that there were plenty of genuine old-ladies available for these parts. Says Nancy, "I'd show up to read for such roles and casting directors would look at me as if I were crazy." » » » Nowadays, she goes after char- acter-ingenue assignments, She's been quite successful with them, too. In an assortment of TV and movie productions, she's portrayed a wild hot-rodder, a college co-ed, a young, alcoholic, a mentally disturbed young mother and a runaway daughter. * * * "Hollywood's loaded with 'pretty-young-thing' types whq are battling one another for vapid romantic leads," Nancy declares. "I can't play old ladies any more but I still see no advantage in joining that mob." Nonetheless, her assignment for the Robert Taylor show ( was the role of a vapid, pretty-young- thing. However, Nancy found a way to make her "different." "We made her a timid character," Miss Anderson pointed out. ENROLL NOW SUMMER TERM 1 s Jea dmg business college.
