THE REGISTER NEWS — MT. VERNON. fLLINOrS Fonda Finishes Won't Sign By BOB THOMAS H OLLWOOD. June 29.—Henry Fonda and "Mister Roberts" will soon end their long and successful cruise together. But Fonda 's shipping back to Broadway rather than stay in Hollywood for movies. For three years and eight months, the actor and the naval officer have been plying between tedium and apathy in the famed play about a supply ship in the backwash of war. When the Los Angeles run ends in a few weeks, Fonda will leave the show. But movie producers who have been waiting for this event can put away their offers. , • • * * TM GOING TO TAKE a little vacation by the ocean," Fonda told me backstage. "Then in October I'm going to start a new play. It's 'Point of No Return', which Paul Osborne has dramatized from the John Marqujind book. Leland Hayward is producing and he expects to have the biggest advance sale of any play~$500,000. "If the play clicks, that means I 'll be tied up for another two With "Roberts," for Movie Role or three years. And I don't mind a bit." Unlike some film players who seek early escapes from theatrical adventures, Fonda has no fear of long runs. "I 'M OFTEN A8KED HOW I can keep fro-sli while playing Roberts for so long," he said. "I have two explanations: 1.—I always got mad when I went to see a hit play that had been running frr si.x months or so; the actors would let down, and yoi'd wonder why the play had been a hit. I always sworo I would never let down, no matter how long I played a part. "2.—There's something about Roberts that won't allow you to let down. It's such an e,\clting show that you have to give it all you've got every night." FONDA LONG AGO stopped worrying about whether film audiences will foi-get him. As for the money, he admitted that an actor can draw bigger salaries in the movies. "But after you get into a certain bracket, you can only save so much, no matter how- much you make," he said. "It doesn't matter whether you're making 100, 200 or 300 thousand." DAHLGREN H. K.
