THE OTTAWA HERALD Thursday, October 5. 1S61 Hal Boyle Former Teacher Has Golden Touch By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP)-Hollywood's latest "man with the golden touch" is a 37-year-old former schoolteacher who won fame as a producer after failing in Iwo other careers. "I've had to make so many comebacks in my life I'm beginning to lose count of them," said Ross Hunter, who has stirred considerable awe in filmdom by turn- ing out seven box office successes in a row. "I was a has-been at 12. I was an out-of-work tap dancer, and probably the worst in the business," he said. "I was a has-been again at 24 as an actor." A year-long illness broke up Hunter's promising career as an actor. He had appeared in 29 films, become a bobby sox favorite and was earning $1,000 a week. "But they forget you fast in this business," he said. "When I was able to go back to work again, no one seemed to remember me. I couldn't find a job." Hunter decided there was no future in sitting around mooning over his old scrapbooks. He taught high school English and drama, spent his spare time learning film production from the ground up. Like many a young producer, Ross started by grinding out low- budget cowboy and Indian action thrillers. In 1954 Hunter talked studio executives into letting him spend $412,000 to make "All I Desire," starring Barbara Stanwyck. The picture returned a cool million- dollar profit, and the word went out from the front office, "give the boy what he wants." Since then Ross has turned out three of the fop 10 hits in Universal-International's 49-year history. He helped build, or add new luster the careers of such stars as Debbie Reynolds, Rock Hudson, Doris Day, Lana Turner and Sandra Dee. Four of his films—"Imitation of Life," "Portrait in Black," "Pillow Talk," arid "Midnight Lace" —cost a total of less than $6 million to produce and already have brought in nearly $45 million. "I'm not interested in delivering social messages," he said. "I give the people what they want —entertainment through glamor and beauty." "I don't believe a housewife wants to leave her own dirty dishes in the sink to go to a movie and. watch someone else washing dirty dishes in the sink,'.' he said.
