I learned that the Important thing is not how much money you've got or how much people love you. The Important thing Is your health." This was Ann Southern talking. Not the flip, wise-cracking Malsle of film fame. She .was n new person, tempered by two years of illness that brought her near death. ."It started three years ago,".she recalled. "I had just finished 'Nancy, goes to Rio,' and I was very tired. But they wanted me to go to London to appear at the commit tid performance. They had wanted me many limes before, so I decided to go, I thought the excitement would pep me up. , . "We had five or six wonilerful weeks in London. 1 was enjoying myself, but I couldn't understand why I was so tired. As we were taking the train to Cherbourg for the boat trip back, Roz Russell kept staring at me. Siie asked me if I felt well, and I admitted that I was Hr'cd. Later, she told rne she noticed I had the yellowest oyes she had ever seen." Ann had a spree in New York and went to Sun Valley for skiing Then she was stricken. "The doctors couldn't understand what had, hit me," she said. ''At firsLthcy! thought I ha d^ gone off-my rocker." • The trouble was finally diagnosed as a virus Infection of the liver. Recovery was slow and full of disappointment; at times her life was . uncertain. "For a whole year I could do h o t h i n g t " she remarked. "I couldn't have radio or TV, because noise was painful. I found things to do. T embroidered little lace pillowslips by the hour. I sewed designs on slippers ami did needlepoint. I also did a lot of thinking. . You have time to evaluate your entire life when you arc 111," The actress emerged from her illness early this year. She found she had to carve a whole 'new career for herself. x "I had lost the momentum that every acting career imi&l have to be successful," she said. "T had to start all over again. I decided the best thing to do would be to find the hardest work possible. So. I went back to the stage." Her Broadway show was not n roaring success, but It taught her how to work again. "Like all the other stars at MOM, I had been living in a glass cage." she observed. "Llln was beautiful there; everything was done for us. ,1 had forgotten what real work was." ^ Ann also took on the hard work of doing some live TV dramas in New York. Then she-returned to Hollywood. She Is now acting in a movie, "The Blue Gardenia," her first in three years. In a few days, she win start an entirely new career in TV. She will star in a TV.show called "Private Secretary." The scries will replace the panel program "This Is Show Business" on Sun- day evenings. "I'll ploy Ihe secrcinry to a big agent." she satd. "Thus we can ntroduco newcomers and have established stars as well. The for- :nat is very flexible; I can be on :hroughout Ihe show or Jusl Introduce the characters. I think' that's cry Important, it's too easy to vcar out your welcome on TV. "We'll also be on only three weeks in a row. Jack Benny will "ill the fourth week every month." Ann will make 125 half-hour films this season and will be lied up with the series until next May. Then she'll have a chance to tlo more movies for theaters. I asked If she would return to her old Malsie role. "Not a chance," she answered. "I don't even look like Jtfalsie any more." I mentioned that she did seem more §erene. "Serene and dull," she laughed, but you could tell she liked It that way. THE LITTLE PEOPLE'S CHRISTMAS TW£ NJEXT DAY THE THREE LllfTLE MEN WENT IN A6 MANY PIReCTlONS TO HUNT FOR THEIR PALS...
