"I play a very mean man in it," Eegley says. "And somehow my kids have the idea I'm nice. I don't want to spoil their illusion. Besides, I don't think the picture would do them any good." Eeg'ey hopes that having the Oscar on his mantlepiece will help him to play some nicer characters, such as the starring role he has on The Defenders' repeat (CBS, June 29). Best Roles 'Of course,' he adds, 'the heavies usually have the best roles. But let's face it — a role is only as good as it is written. A good actor can take a poorly written role and make it a little better than it is. but not much. You could never win an Oscar with a poorly written part." Begley is famous in acting circles for his ability to grasp the essentials of a part quickly. This has given rise to the rumor that he is a quick study, but he says that isn't true. "I'm not a quick study." he says. "Learning b'ne is hard work for me. But I can grasp the character of the role I'm playing quickly. Those are two different things. "Actors have different methods of getting a character. Paul Muni did a lot of research for the fc Clarence Darrow part in 'Inherit nings Bryan part I played, I did nings Bryant part I played, I did no research. Oh, somebody sent me that book about Bryan, 'The Great Commoner,' but I only read a few pages and put it down. "I can't get a part from a book. If the playwright hasn't got the character in his play, I can't get it. But if the playwright has got WMNB-Red Sox Baseball Sunday — 4:25 (Doublcheader) Boston at Los Angeles Monday — 4:25 Boston at Los Ajsgeles Tues., Wed..

It all depends on what's been written down." , Two Children Both of Begley's children, at the moment, plan to follow him into acting. His daughter Allene (Bunny) is 14 and young Eddy is 13. Their ambition meets with their father's approval—"as long as they get an education first." "I suppose that's because I never had one," he says. "The fifth grade was as far as I got. So'I'm insisting that my kids get their education before they go into acting. After that, they can do anything they want." As for Begley himself, he's nursing one secret desire—he'd like to play Shakespeare. "I know I could do some of the comedy roles," he says, "but what I'd really like to do—and it's probably presumptuous of me even to think about—is to play King Lear." Lewis—Memory: Most show business performers have fabulous memories—for acts and other performers. Witness this story told by Joanne HiSl, the young soprano who got her big break on The Voice of Firestone's next-to-last show. She once did a television show in Dallas, Some time later, she reached New York and eventually auditioned for a Jerry Lewis spectacular. Lewis took one look at her and ssid he knew her from somewhere. Miss Hill knew she'd never met him. But Lewis didn't mean that they'd actually met—he just had seen her. It turned out he had happened to be in Dallas and had seen her television show once. She got the job. IRVING MANSFIELD Irving Mansfield's Talent Scouts Summer Perennial By JOAN CROSBY NEW YORK — Like gaillardia, coreopsis and phlox, Irving Mnns- field's Talent Scouts is n summer perennial. Mansfield, the creator and producer of Talent Scouts, which returned to television this month blooms every summer with his program. This pleases him. but only partially. He thinks there should be rocm on television for his show on a 52-week basis. "There has got to be a place where young prospects can work. Before an artist can be good, he has to be bad. We're willing to take a chance. Talent Scouts is put on for less money than cither Como or Moore has in his budget for scenery. We have big ratings. Yet when the fall and winter months come along, the variety shows, in a mad rush for ratings. go out for only the top stars. We're in a medium where we have to find young faces, to' be tomorrow's top stars. I'm out looking." Proof of Mansfield's words is foxmd in the person of one Vaughn Mender, who was a talent discovery on the first show last season. One year later, Meader is the psuedo-president of the United States and has two highly successful record albums. "From time to time he was on our show, last July 3, through ' Christmas, he sold more First Family record albums than My Fair Lady sold through its entire Broadway run." Mansfield, a former press agent, an enthusiastic and rapid talker, and a genial man, defends his show against the charge that some of the talent is not really discovered by the stars. "We have never said it was," he said. "We're honest about people we like. I go to joints in Greenwich Village, where I find a lot of them. Some of them say 'But I don't know any big stars to introduce me.' I always tell them not to worry about that. we'll find someone. We never say these people are proteges of the stars, unless they happen to be. Sometimes a star really does find talent. For instance, last year Robert Goulet brought us his understudy in Camelot, a fellow named Bob Peterson." Mansfield created Talent Scouts in 1946, and a fairly new performer named Arthur Godfrey was the host. "I was also the first person fired by Godfrey," Irving smiled. "It took him seven or eight months, and eventually he went to CBS and said he couldn't get on with me. I still don't know why. Well, when I was retired kicking and screaming from Talent Scouts. I went on to This Is Show Business. Eventually, CBS gave me back the rights to Talent Scouts, after Godfrey had run it into the ground. I sold it as a special to NBC for the Ford Star- time series.' 1 A lot of big names appeared on Talent Scouts, during its long CBS run. But Mansfield recalls one episode ruefully. "I wanted to put on a young kid named Eddie Fisher, but his schedule was such that I had to take someone else out, to work Eddie on. So I said, OK, take oat the fat boy.' The fat boy was Mario Lanza, who never spoke to me again."
