ULRJUUUUUULRJU Natalie Is Filmdom s Queen Bee Palm Beach Post-Times, Sunday, Nov. 10, 1968 B WTB Auditorium feminine iron butterflies, she does not punch the panic button nor her agent when she's between pictures. Natalie has the security of working whenever she pleases. "I'm doing this picture at Columbia because It's contemporary," she explained. "It's about fidelity and infidelity and has something to say. The subject matter Is rarely attempted In this country, but done so well abroad. "The picture I'm really looking forward to Is 'I Never Promised You a Rose Garden' which I hope to start next summer." And between pictures? "Tennis and Richard Gregson," she said, laughing; tion there is comes from abroad: Julie Christie, Vanessa Redgrave or Samantha Eg-gar. And they've got English accents. Domestic dolls are either of a different type too old, too young or just not boxoffice. Elizabeth Taylor and Shirley MacLaine, for instance, are a bit long in the tooth to be believable as the girl next door. Mia Farrow leaves something to be desired In the sex bomb category. Faye Du-naway is high style, but somehow not the kind to set men afire. The blonde brigade of Carol Lynley, Kim Novak, Ursula Andrews, Sandy Dennis, Yv-ette Mimieux and Stella Stevens are simply different types. They aren't in the same category with our friend Natasha. "My agent gets from three to five scripts a week," Natalie said. "Sometimes he sug the movie version of "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir." Natasha, now in her delectable 20s, has proved her acting abilities In "Splendor in the Grass" and "Westside Story." She has also had her share of bombs "Daisy Clover," for example. This exotic beauty, it happens, was born in northern California and her name is now Natalie Wood. She is starring in her first movie in two years, "Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice," a contemporary story of two couples who toy with the idea of exchanging mates. Natalie, nee Natasha, is in the unique position of being queen bee among American leading ladies. She can and does play roles from teen-agers to 30-year-olds in comedy, drama and musicals. There are few other feminine stars who handle that kind of action.

God knows I've made some mistakes. "But the Important thing is that producers want me in their pictures." More so, it appears, than she wants to be in their pictures. Natalie Is in the enviable position of choosing not to work if she doesn't care for the scripts offered her or if she's in love which she frequently is. Her current beau is Richard Gregson, an English agent and producer wilh whom she traveled for much of the past two years in London, France and South America. When Gregson moved his headquarters to Hollywood, Natalie decorated his suite of offices. She also decorated the homes of friends. Now she's taking tennis lessons.

Although of Russian extraction, Natasha has the appearance of Upper Arlington, Ohio, high school cheer leader. But then if they had cheer leaders at Volgagrad, U.S.S.R., high school, Natasha would have made it big there too. Her figure is a triumph of nature. She is petite at 5 foot 2, yet with long tapering legs, a full bosom, luminous brown eyes and a waist you or I or almost anyone could encircle wilhapairof hands. Natasha began film acting at age 4.

There is really only one gap, and that's a compassion gap and it exists between all of us. "Some of the hippies who worked with us up there were pathetic waifs their minds blown by drugs at 1ft but I found most of them were gentle, articulate people who didn't want to hurt anyone. They Just wanted to find some real personal values." Jean, who Is 19, has herself followed a career that looks like a personal search for values. She began at 17 as producer Otto Premlnger's inter nationally -bally hooed choice for "Saint Joan," which proved the worst flop of that filmmaker's brilliant career. It also was supposed to have sounded obscurity for the girl making her debut In it. But Jean fought back, work-ing through "Bonjour Tristesse," "The Mouse that Roared" and "Let No Man Write My Epitaph" before she moved to the forefront of the Krench film scene with her portrayal of the newspaper girl in "Breathless." Her friendship with hippies and other rebellious aspects of modern society points up what she considers to be a major difference between the French and American film Industries. "In terms of technical ability and equipment, Hollywood Is unquestionably tops," she said. "But in France the atmosphere Is far more democratic. There is more Interaction and understanding between people and on all levels. Here you usually only meet the persons who have achieved the same level of success as you have. It's a kind of artistic caste system. "Over there everybody sits at the same table, literally. They discuss the film and become very involved In It." Jean described one Incident of what she calls "table sharing" which occurred with her hippie friends during the location shooting of "Paint Your Wagon." A group of them had hiked In from the hills for a Sunday morning walk. They showed up at the house she had rented and were Invited in for an Impromptu breakfast. 'l walked them through the house," she said, "and I considered offering them the use of the bathroom and tub. But I was afraid of offending them.

By HAROLD HEFFERNAN HOLLYWOOD, (NANA), She's as part of the "new" generation as any hippie you might find walking down the Sunset Strip, the Champs Ely-sees, or King's Road. Yet, she would seem to be more likely at home along Park Avenue, or living in a chateau at Cap D'Antlbes. The paradox is a letter-perfect for Jean Seberg, who was the Idol of the French avante-gai'de movie-makers until she returned to her native America to herald the cause of modern youth. No question about It, Jean Seberg so endeared herself to them during the filming of "Paint Your Wagon," that she became the toast of the long-haired crowd. The movie is back on the Paramount lot after nearly three months of weather-stricken shooting in Baker, Oregon, but they're still talking about the way Jean "adopted" scores of hippies from all over the west coast who gathered up on the location site to play extras. Their arrival was a delightful surprise to Jean as well as a boon for Paramount In the 1 1 e movie iimi cioc lOulnttNIWD I wist or unroll CHARLTON HESTON "PLANET OF APES" "" 2 BIG matter of rounding up the proper-looking specimens and at the right price, too. With their long hair, beards, tattered clothes and generally scroun-gy mien, they fitted right into the gold-miner atmosphere. As one weirdo who had come all the way from Hollywood put It: "I've been around movie people all my life, but this Jean Seberg is one of the nicestshe seems to have complete empathy with us and the way we look on life." The hippies stood in line to play cards with her between camera setups. She loved to talk to them Individually, finding out where they were from and why they were In the hippie movement. "I don't think there was anything unusual about the way I acted toward and with them," said Jean, as she finished one of her final scenes on the studio lot, before taking off for France and holidays with her five-year-old son and an estranged husband. "You'd think I must be a charter member of the hippies the way a lot of people reacted to t he reports from Baker. "Everybody talks about gaps," she went on.
