HARRISON IN HOLLYWOOD Screen Writing Pair Upsets Tradition Normal, Being Happily Wed By Acting HOLLYWOOD - All the rules for screen writers, together with the traditions of literary lassitude and psychopathic behavior, are broken by Colin Clements and Flocnce Ryerson. For one thing, they have been happily married—and without professional jealousy—for about 12 years. Thanks to somewhat different interests tho prefers writing plays) they have pretty well maintained their identities, but not so stubbornly that he minds being introduced as Mr. Ryerson, or she as Mrs. Clements. For another thing, they are to all appearances normal. They don't make a hobby of insulting producers who can't read, i or do they run ri-otinrl their place mute, or livo in tree houses or compose and circulate Rabelaisian verse, or have ih-msMves photographed in the creation of ;> story while -ita-iilin;; on their 1:< .ms.

Individually and in collaboration, they also have done at least 100 plays and more than 50 novels. They haven't gathered up any Pulitzer or Nobel prizes but it's an impressive fact— according to the agent who collects the royalties—that not a weekday passes without at least one of Colin Clements' one-net plays being performed somewhere. Miss Ryerson Adapted Oz Story When guests drop in, the pair never seem to be busy, though they may work all night after the people have gone. When I dropped in the other day. though, and asked questions. I got an idea of their current program; They had finished a mystery play called "Through the Night" and were assisting daily with rehearsals for a local tryout. They were polishing a play, "June Mad," which has been sold for Broadway production this fall. Miss Ryerson. whose recent chores Flight From the Unseen Foe The "alertc"—air raid alarm—has been sounded, and these Parisian men and women lo.se scurrying to the nearest shelter. for M-G-M have included "The Wizard of Oz," the Garbo comedy (whatever that'll be called), and "Henry Goes to Arizona" starring Frank Morgan), nnw was working on a picture for Wallace Beery "The Reign of Soapy Smith." She and Clements were collaborating on a one-act play to he presented at some sort of drama festival at Stanford. Clements, alone, was laboring over a book of one- act plays and a series of monologs. I sunlm scripting, has been with Metro the last H years. She works at the studio three days a week, an pro- j <(ucers and other writers come to her house l\vn days a week. i 1'lements won't tie himself up with I any one studio, nor will he work at any studio. At the conclusion of his list regular contract, ho thanked the producer and .said he had cn- jnyed the association. 'We paid you to wmk. not to enjoy oursclf," rudely replied the executive, who evidently thought Clements was being sarcastic. Cifincni.s say.s he got tired of try- in" to guess whether movie makers wen- .serious. Once in a conference about a heavy dramatic scene involving a bearded Russian, the producer suggested having the actor part hi.s whiskers and reveal a bird's nest full of egg.s. That was when Clements ';ave up the scenario bu.snie.ss. Today he 11 write and sell an orignal story but hr wants no part in its adaptation.
