(ffi) — When Arlene Dahl announced she wanted to ?

It was partly due to her recent marriage to Lex Barker, the breast- beating ape man of the Tarzan series, she declared. "It's risky enough for an actress to marry an actor," she explained I think many such marriages are wrecked because of conflicting schedules, with one party away on location while ihe other ts at home and vice versa. I believe that is what caused the rift between Barbara Stanwyck and Hobcrt Taylor. Those long absences are murder; a ' in co/nmamier pent 30 minutes visiting a combat command of the Second Armored Division which recently arrived to lulwark Western defense forces. Eisenhower watched attentively s crews of M-2« medium tanks pilled out of their machines in an evacuation drill and set up ma- hineguns.

"It's Up to ih* Wife" "I feel it is up to the wife to manage her life so she can be with her husband as much of the time a.s possible. That'* one of the reasons I wanted out of MGM. As a free-lancer, I could arrange my schedule so I'm making a picture when Lex Is." -Arlene's other reasons for leaving the studio stemmed from its refusal to loan her to play Roxanne in "Cyrano de Bergerac." "They told me mey would compensate lor it with a big role at MGM." she recalled. "But it never came. Instead, they put me in three stinkers t'No Questions Asked' •Watch the Birdie,' 'Inside Straight.') so I got mad," No Plans of Arlene The fiery redhead had it out with a studio bigwig. He admitted that the big musicals were designed for Jane Powell. Esther Williams and Kathryu Grayson, and there were no plans for Arlene. "Very well," she replied. "Then I want out." Nearly every player who leaves n studio remarks, "the party was friendly." But the old cliche appears true in Arlene's case. "They gave me my wedding gown," she explained, "and kept me on salary until after the honeymoon." One other reason for her departure was the variety of her outside activities.
