W. C. fields By 1'AUL HAKUISON NEA Service Stsfl Correspondent HOLLYWOOD, April ]<j. _ A red-headed artist with a malicious sense of humor is getting a .| 0 t. O f Inn out or his hobby of caricaturing v Hie movie stars. Considerable | money, too, because il a ii actor doesn't want to buy his portrait Ins Mends usually bid for it. John Decker's trick is transposing the face of a living subject to the body of somebody in a famous painting. Currently 'the town is snickering at Decker's "Victoria iZcgina" because the face is thtit of bulbous-.mozzled W. C. Fields Similaily Hie head of Hnrpo Marx tops the figures of (lie elegant "Blue Boy"; Greta Garbo is Raphael's "Moim Lisa"; Mickey Roo- ncy's tougli mug is set on a Van Dyke foppish boy's figure. The artist won't do these cari- cattirc-mmposilpK according . 0 any ideas but his own. Imt the stars usually like 'em. First one he did here ivns George Arliss as Whistler's portrait of Qarlylc—a huge .canvas that Arliss put over .his. fireplace Next he painted the Marx Brothers' —when Zeppo was still with the Bang—as Rembrandt's Burgomeis- lers. They were so delighted that i they ordered four additional copies, one as n gift for Director Norman J. McLeod. Groucho .says h.» built his new home around his picture FIELDS BALKS AT MUCK Fields wants his Queen Victoria portrait hut hesitates to uiiy the; price, though he was an excited &>'.i-f', :il Ui2 unveiling held in Gene Decker's latest. Fowler's office the other day. It was yuite a ceremony, vvilli two studio- costmned sailors hauling a Unio-! Jack off the picture while a third' fired a one-gun salute that just missed Leo McCarey's office. Sir! Cedrlc Hardwlcke was so entranced ! with the work that he ordered a i Jiiinatme. It's impressively framed in gilt, filigree and kept in a wliile- and-gilt case with the cover inscription: "W. o. Fields as Victoria Reglrni by sir John De=kar. R. A.

DECKER I'AINTS IN' ANY STYLE Decker Is so clever at copyin^ old masters that he once buugai a long-coveted Modiglmni, sight, un- seej;, nnd found on delivery that it was one he had done himself, fie isn't any slouch at oiigimis, <.«,,..,had n oue : mau show here recently' Alan Mowu'ray collects Deckers ami has 32 of them now. Lately he lias tried his luii:d in mpvie, poster art—did that "Swiss Family Robinson" one you've been seeing everywhere. He also re-, produces famous works of art for the elaborate movie colony homes or he'll obligingly do serious portraits in the style of any O f the masters. Many a client has pointed to a Decker-created likeness and find, -That's me—by Reubens." An executive who selected Van Dyke's style as the one in which he wanted lo be immortalized never could remember the celebrawa name, and during every party ii°'d u'ii'Plione Decker to ask, "Say who was that guy who p.iinte.f.iner Steelc-Cooter Society—Persona!
