THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS DOLLYWOOD Amet and Andy Ar« About Mady for Gr««n F«stur«i HOLLYWOOD — Will Freeman Gosden and Charles Correll of radio fame retire now that they're behind the scenes, producing half- hour TV film comedies with a flesh-and-blood Amos, Andy, Kingfish, Lightnin'. Henry Van Porter, Sapphbre and Madame Queen? The airwave veterans of 23 years sat in their Beverly Hills office and admitted that the pastures of retirement loolted mighty Inviting. "We'll go on doing our radio •how for » while," Correll said. "I guess yon might lay that we're staying around for the end of radio." Gosden, who's been supervising the TV film productions with his partner, shrugged his shoulders: "After being in television this short period of time, we realize that these 23 years hi radio have been just make-believe. 'Television ii a killer. It's big It scares you." The comedians searched for over a year and interviewed hundreds of applicants to find Negro duplicates of the characters they created on tadio. Alvin Childress and Spencer Williams play the Amos and Andy roles. Charles Barton, lured from Abbott and Costello feature comedies, is directing the TV films which have a three-day shopting schedule. "We crowd as much production value into 30 minutes," Correll announced, "as a major studio puts into a full-length B picture.' TEMPERAMEKfTAL It's definite that Vic Mature won't resume the lead in "Wild Fire," the picture that shuttered last year when he broke his leg. "I never wanted to do the film in the first place," Vic growled on the set of "The Las Vegas Story" . . . Ann Dvorak is fretting in Europe over the new whispers that she and her agent hubby Igor Dega have rifted. Not true. • • • • Elmo Lincoln's Idea for a Hollywood stock company of old time stars whose salaries In film Jobs wUl be paid by the combined major studios, is gaining industry favor. It's the best plan yet for Hollywood to take care of Its film pioneers. • • • • TV or not TV: Loretta Young: 'Td love to make g ictures for TV. The quicker ollywood gets around to making them, the better it wiU be." Robert Ryan: "It's here to stay. We're aU going to be in it". Joan Blondell: "Television film is fine, but live TV — that's murder. You race around the studio like a mad thing. Nobody knows anything." Eve Arden. 'They want me to cU> "Our Miss Brooks' as a live TV show. I want to do it on film. We get into big ^arguments aboilt it," Fifi D'Orsay's night club warbling has revived studio interest in her peppy oo-lah-lahs. She's already tested for a French Texas Guinan role with Fred Astaire in MGM's "The Belle of New York." After four years of marriage to the human French 75, hubby Ricky LaRicos who manages her career, says: "I've got her speaking a little Greek and she's got me speaking a little French and the night club owners don't know what we're saying." * « • • Frank DeVol and his wife, Grayce, walked out of a movie theater and saw a tremendous line waiting outside. Said Frank. "We must have seen a good movie." RITA'S ROCKS Rita Hayworth's jewel collection in 'Hollywood for appraisal, is worth a cool million. Baubles from three husbands — Edward Judson, Orson Welles and Aly Khan. Yep, diamonds are a girl's best friend. • « • • Short Takes: Don't be surprised if Lai-ry Parks pops up in "The Larry Parks Story" — the inside on what happened to him and why. It's the reason he's nixing all newspaper syndicate and magazine officers to write the yarn . . . Now it's John Ringling North in a TV film deal — plans for a video series with a circus background ... CHURCHES FIRST FREE WILL BAPTIST Comer 11th and Jordan St REV.
