THE REOISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON. ILLINOIS THURSDAY, JiECEMPER, 26, 1968 TOP STORIES OF '68 Greek divorced, one of the wealthiest men in the world. The: wedding took place three days after it was announced, on the Greek island of Scorpios. Conflicting statements came train Catholics about whether die bride, would be excommunicated from the Catholic Church because of marrying a divorced man. Richard Cardinal Gushing of Boston, who had married her to: John F. Kennedy, spoke strongly in her defense. People everywhere commented on Mrs. Kennedy's choice and many Americans felt somehow betrayed. But it wasn't long before public opinion decided that the match was logical, even inevitable. The Hollywood Year By BOB THOMAS Associated Press Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) — This was the year in Hollywood <vhen . . . Cary Grant, the screen's perfect husband, was accused by his wife of beating her while on LSD trips. The divorce revelations did nothing to dominish his popularity. Jack aVlenti put across a rating system for movies. Producers began vying for an X, which means a picture is unfit for children and hence enticing for adults. The new status symbol among film stars became the million- dollars-per-picture^ee. Liz Taylor and Richard Burton welcomed .hew members to the club: Julie Andrews, Lee Marvin, Paul Newman. And Barbra Streisand made that.,. exclusive society before being seen on the .screen. Two assassinations prompted Hollywood to search its soul about violence on the screen. Fito. makers began brawling with each other over the issue. Nudity in films hit new bottoms: Rod Steiger's, Charlton Heston's, Paul Newman's, etc. Barbra Streisand's husband struck a hew note in press relations by allegedly slugging a photographer for t aking too many pictures. t The production code for self-c I airship was relaxed almost' : othe point of aapthy. A popular J§j(r formula for movie plots: Boy meets girl, boy loses girl, girl gets girl. — And there was almost as .imich gfrl-girl and boy-boy kissing on the screen as there was of the usual kind, i Vanessa Redgrave paused between making American-financed movies to lead anti- American parades: in London. A new candor was sounded in interviews.: Lee Marvi talked about housekeeping with his girl friend. Alex Cord discussed, his decision to marry Joanna Pettet before^the birth of their baby. -And" just" -where was it that Eddie Fisher married Connie Stevens? . Frank--Sinatra gave up Mia Farrow ,and Elizabeth Taylor, the former^ in marriage, the latter in-a' movie. ; Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis pushed all the film stars off the movie magazine covers with her own headline-making. • Zsa-Zsa.Gabor flung epithets at hotelkeepers i n Madrid and London. Apparently her accommodations weren't the same as when she was wed to Conrad Hilton. ; This was also the year when the Burtons bought a yacht for their dogs,, when Katharine Hepburn won another Oscar after a 35ryear lapse, when Anna Magnani broke her foot kicking Anthony .Quinn, when "Laugh-in" socked it to the television industry, when Lucille Ball put her two children to work, when a Beetle .and, his girl friend appeared on Wi album cover clothed only in smiles.
