Colorful D'esserts Had Their Stand-ins At Studio Actors usually have "stand-ins' but for the first time in motion picture history, a studio had to have 16-"stand-ins" for 16 gelatin desserts. - . ; During the lavish oriental banquet scenes for Columbia's Technicolor spectacle, "A Thousand and One Nights," Cornel Wilde, Evelyn Keyes, Adele Jergens . and Phil Silvers were served a sumptuous repast. One course was a series of colored aspics, molded as peacocks, doves and hawks, "hese dishes were made of gelatin. . The great heat of the Technicolor cameras rapidly melted the jellied dishes.

'•••••. - .:••' After Sarongs, Clothes Leave Lamour Cold SAHON'G—In 11 films it never came down. GOWN—A Hevolution for Dorothy Lamour. By BOB THOMAS ..; ,?r ! Hollywood, Feb. :>4 — lliere is revolution at Paramount. They are putting clothes on Dorothy Lamour. , For "Masquerade in Mexico," the queeu of the sarongs is being clothed in some startling gowns that will shield large portions of :ier famous body from public scrutiny. r encountered her on the set in a dressing robe and asked: "Do you think you look as sexy in a gown as you do in a sarong?" "As a matter of fact," she replied academically. "I think 1 look more sexy — or rather, sexier. The effect is much more suggestive if something is . left to the imagination, which the sarong obviously doesn't do." Not that she is hitler toward :he sarong. She wouldn't mind that little patch of cloth if the studio bossess would let her act in one, instead of merely display. • . » * * You .must be warmer playing in on location for John Wayne's new RKO Radio picture, "The Invisible Army." Colonel Clarke, technical adviser on the picture, became so engrossed u & scene being filmed that he fell from the camera raft into the deepest part of the lake. Philippine- born Havier promptly dived in and pulled Clarke out. Havier then reminded Clarke of an incident he had long forgotten. As lieutenant on his first tour of duty in the Philippines, Clarke had rescued. Havier's grandfather from drowning when his native canoe upset in Manila Bay. What Havier didn't know was that Colonel Clarke is an expert sivim- mer and could easily have snved himself. the picture since you have some clothes on," I suggested. : , "No, I am just as cold in these found out more than gowns," she said. I they were somewhat flimsy and the form-fit, required that she wear nothing underneath. I asked Director Mitch Leisen's opinion on the momentous. : sftrong- gowr. issue aiid he handed down the decision that "the stockinged leg is much more suggestive 'than the bare llesli." Next I polled Paramounl's dress designer, Edith Head, on whether Dotty looked sexier in the gowns.' "I think she looks much more seductive," she replied, altering the adjective, she showed me the sketches for Dotty's costumes. They were Lulus, but I manifested more interest in the sarong, * * * . Observing that I was losing interest in the clothes. Miss Head answered by breathless queries about the saiong. It consists of a pair of shorts to allow the wearer to move with a minimum of worry. Then Film Producer Enacts Role In Chm Piclurc comes the sarong'., proper, or: I should say, itself. 'Die whole pir- meiit could be cut into two ruht- sizec! handkerchiefs. The sarong seemed to be an engineering achievement ranking with Mt. Riishmore. the tryloti and rx'ris- phere and the Triborough Bridge. What holds the darn thing up, I asked the designer, "That is a military secret," she said, but she revealed that proper cutting, darting and insertion of elastic here and there were part of the reasons for success. I understand other elements include an ability to inhale often and favorable construction of the sarongee. "in 11 pictures Dorothy has appeared In approximately 150 sarongs, all different in design, style and cloth," Miss Head said proudly. "She has plunged in jungle pools, swam, ran, danced and been carried off by apes, but never has her sarong como down." , . . Beautify YOUR FIGURE! Stay Young! Stay Beautiful! .
