By BOB THOMAS AP Movie Writer HOLLYWOOD — "Spangler Brough and Ruby Stevens discuss reconciliation." "Jeannette Morriso/i marries Bernie Schwartz." "Phyllis Isley up for role with Archibald Leach." Headlines such as these wouldn't attract much readership. But perhaps they would 'if you inserted the screen names of the above parties, which are (in the same order); Robert Taylor, Barbara Stanwyck, Janet Leigh„ Tony Curtis, Jennifer Jones and Gary Grant. Obviously names can make a difference in the success of movie stars. Buy why and how do they get new names ? I sought some answers from Milt Lewis, a top talent executive at Paramount. WHAT'S IN A yAMffi?" He museiL The answer wai obvloui: Fanne and fortune can be in • name. But what makes » good name for a movie starT 'The name should be simple and pleasant sounding," Lewis replied. "It should be easy to pronounce, without any trick spellings. "Personally, I like simple names like Nancy Olson, Jane PoweU, Betty Grable, Esther WiliMW. The trend seems to be in that airection and away from the exotic handles of the past, like Theda Bars, Greta fjarho. Marlene Dietrich. "Actually, it doesn't matter too much what stars' names are, as long as they have talent. People will eventually learn how to pronounce and spell the names, if they like the stars enough. Claudette Colbert is an example. And what about Maria Ouspenskaya ? Nobody could pronounce her name, but she managed to keep working. • • • • MOVIE NAMES SHOULD BE fairly short, Lewis said, in order to fit on a movie marquee. He usually advised budding young players to keep their own handles as long as they are short enough and not too outlandish. But he added that many young hopefuls are not satisfied with their handles. "In fact, it gets to be a fud with MRW of th« actors,' he said."Thay and luck wttU ont Mun^ W'lhqr try another. had kMl mm for interviews three tinwflt' atflk time with a different i>aw.** "0ldat40.50 ,(l0r ^ManjYM'reGnn »bleb Bujrnn^udjRiM MH "M '1^^ »bleb nan/ n« uM mtmmmn "oM '' TTF OMM ronis Tkbfeu tor np, via, ^fam. t«mm *mm Ai all <ry nan a< -SIZES- 9 to 15 and 12 to 20 Use Our Layaway SUMMER SUITS Regular $79.98 to «5.00 # Imported Linens • Shantungs |^ • Rayons WHITES and PASTELS GMARANTEFO RECAPPING New Tire Performance At V2 New Tire Cost DUNCAN & GARP'SOK TIRE SERVICE 12th ft Bdwy Phone 817 Authariiaa OMIM fa» STEWAK'I WARNEB and CAPEHAK'l RAIHOS and TELEVISION Quarantaas taiat Untm burPm 1691 -aaiway taa U» Musical inttruinanti mm Wa Ha»« • I »n» •» •P'HUii CautamaMt for those HOT Summer Days ahead.. • "COOL as a BREEZE" CASUALS WHITES! and Colors, too!
