WEDNESDAY, APRIL 11, 1951 'Go fast Young Lady,' Jam's Carter Claims, If You Want in Movies By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD, April 11. </r>-"Go a/ast, young lady, it you want to {'yet K. break in the movies." This switch on the Horace orceley nrivice is the secret success fo'r Janis Carter, blonde and curve- some actress. Her film career is busting out all over, thanks to that old devil (to Hollywood) rv. Janis was a song-and-dance hit m "DuBarry Was a Lady" and "Panama Hattic," and shows won her a contract with Columbia liiclures. So what happened? in her seven years at tlie studio she never played in a musical. "I had only one good picture during all the lime I was there." .she recalled. "That was a lead in 'Framed' with Glenn Ford. They were 50 excited about it that tlicy tore up my contract and gave me * belter one. And then they let me sit around for a year without doin? anything!" After seven years of doing mosily secondary rolls and posing lor cheesecake, she and the studio parted company last Ocfober. Instead or moping around IOM-H, she headed cast. "1 Took Apartment" "I look an aparlmenl and wa 1 ; ready to stay." she related. "Ti.™ things started happening. 1 signed i< up to do a television show, to or. ' broadcast on Christmas Day. Av.d brother, lhal was hard work". "We worked all day Christinas, starting at nine o'clock in the morning. ! had Christmas dinner in a delicatessen—maUali ball soup 'and a chicken lior sandwich Rut I knew it would help me il I made good on the show. And it paid off. "By intermission time—while we were still on the air -1 had oilers lo do three other television shows. And Ihe next day Richard Rodcors, George Abbott nnd smother Broadway producer called me up aboui Jobs." Janls kept workitm. In three weeks of television appearances, she had time to eat out. only once. Word of her success eot back to Howard Hughes, ihe enigmatic heirl of RKO. He hauled her back from 3 Florida nightclub e.ncaqcment (o play opposite, John Wayne In "The Flying Leathernecks." That won her another seven- year contract. She is now slurring In "The Half-Breed," in which she will sing and dunce [or the first lime in the movies. Trij) WU Ifmulers "The trip east did wonders (or me." she concluded. "II gave me a chance to try out my singing and dinciiiK again. It gives you a lot of confidence to know that you can still RO out and eanr a living and n f>ood one at that." Pnraun.viially enough, she is now unable to return to her benefactor television. Her RKO contract preludes any TV appearances.
