22 A IT? AN HEATON' .TOl.TR.VAL Tuesday. October SI. 1344 EARL HEARS Easy Aces Want To Eat Sitting By F.ARI. WILSON NEW YORK "Come up to my ivory newer and I'll tell you about it," said Goodman Ace of radio's Kasv Ace. He and his wife Have been on, and up in the, air for 15 years. I listened intently to this sharp - tongued middle western wit. As drama critic, he once wrote about a certain hambo, 'You can't hear Mr. So-and-So Wilson past the third row no be sure to sit past the third row." And he pulled the horsoplayers' classic, "I have the horses right where they want me." He said that during these days of Roosevelt prosperity, he couldn't find places to eat, because restaurants were so crowded, and that Jane often longed for a good old republican depression. "Jane said she'd almost be willing: to vote for Dewey, because he'd bring back bad times; then we could go in any restaurant and get a table," he said. He's Quid GOODIE SEEMS to be quiet, hut possesses strong convictions. On the air his wire cracks such malaprops as "Be it ever so hovel there's no place like home," "Time wounds all heels." "I'll give you a thumbnose description of the guy, "We're insufferable friends" and "He's a ragged individualist." Her husband, who wrote these lines, for some years carried on a war with the stork Club and 21. Iscing a Kansas City boy, he doesn't like to have to Kay who he is to be allowed to spend money. So he didn't tell them he was the great (ioodman Ace of the radio when he went to 21. And he didn't get a table. Jack Benny said a couple of years ago that he'd fix it and made a date to meet him there. On Ace's arrival the doorman said, "Yes, what can I do for yon?" I'd like to see a suit of clothes," snapped Goodie, burning up. Benny slapped him warmly on the back at that moment and led him to a table, remarking, "I'll make a fuss over you and you'll always he welcome." As they left, the hatcheck guardian salaamed and said, "Here, Mr. Ace, is your coat." Ace was vastly flattered. "And here," the man said to Benny, "is your coat, Mr. Rernie." The fellow thought Benny was Ben Bernie. .UK WAS RETICENT at the Stork club about identifying himself and didn't get in. Curiously, he then got a card telling of the wonderful air-conditioning in the Cub room. Ace wrote to Sherman Billingsley, saying, "You think you have good air-conditinning. We KNOW you have. We got the most frigid reception we got anywhere." Billingsley replied with some handsome bow ties. "Thanks," wrote back Ace. "If you'll send me some socks to match, I can get turned down in style at the Stork club." Now they're friends. Billingsley recently ordered the best table in the house for Ace. I asked Ace to figure out how many hours a week he works. It came to It 1-2. That's uhat I put in in one day! But of course, I make less money. Jai It Benny bought his first gag. relating to a Chinese magician opening the show at the old Palace. The gag was: "Vaudeville has changed. It used to take Japs or better to open." Ace told me at this point that he had better get to work. "I have my Crosley to bear, he explained. Ham JOEY ADAMS, thf ronnc at Leon & Eddie's, encountered Oscar Peiiin, and said, "I eat your stciks regularly serlin steaks." Srrlin replied, "My business isn't food, but shows." "Oh," said Joey, "turkeys'" The ham! Jennie Goldstein, the darling of the Yiddish Mage, opened triumphantly at the Rumanian Village, although her husband huh rushed to Polyclinic hospital the same day after a stroke. She wept between wliows, hut on the floor was a brilliant comedienne. One of her fans was 78. Jennie is just part of a big, interesting show.

Kathryn Grayson, Susanna Foster and Gloru Jean, for three, have achieved screen prominence following in the trail that Deanna blazed, and other youngsters are coming up in the same manner. One of the latest is Jane Powell, a round-faced, dark-haired, blue-eyed 14-year-old, who is now on Loew's screen in "Song of the Open Road." Jane has the same buoyancy Deanna Durhin had in her early screen days, and it's probably not just a coincidence that she was discovered by Miss Durhin, and is started on her film career by Charles R. Rogers, who also set the Durbin career in motion. Young Miss Powell also had ful voice that is displayed in the picture in "Carmena" and in some ballads including "Too Much in Love," "Fun in the Sun" and "Here It Is Monday." Introduced on the Edgar Bi-rgen-(harlle McCarthy radio program, she Ik aided In her film debut by the presence of Bergen and Charlie, and hy music, by Sammy Kaye, comedy hy W'. C. Fields, and a pleasant open-air a, lory about the American Youth Hostels. She's under contract to M-G-M. but will be seen next in another Charles R. Rogers musical, which used to he railed "High Among the Stars'' hut has been changed to "Delightfully Dangerous." DARRYL ZAMTK is still undecided about whether or not to produce Wendell Willkie's "One World," to which he holds the film rights. If it is filmed, however, he said Spencer Tracy would be the man to play Wlllkie George "Gabby" Hayes supports John Wayne for the 27th time in his screen career in "Tall in the Saddle" Dick Haymcs and Dana Andrews have been set for top roles in the new musical version of "State Fair." Negotiations are being made to borrow Kathryn Grayson for the picture also F.RKOL I LYNN'S next picture will bo "Don Juan" .Dennis O'Keefe will play one of the, leads opposite .loan Fontaine in "The Af fairs of Susan "...

He was also in "Passage to .Marseille." j THE SUIT which 20th Century-Fox filed against Jennifer Jones when she failed to star in "Laura" for that company has been settled with David O. Selznick, who holds Miss Jones' contract. She is to star in one Fox picture per year, with "Cluny Brown" as the first one. ...Ethel Barrymnre's new play for the Theater Guild, "Embezzled Heaven," opens tonight in New York Jack Carson will play the male lead opposite Joan Crawford in 'Mildred Pierce" Cantinflas, famous Mexican comedian, will be starred in RKO's "The Magnificent Tramp" as his American film debut. mm Robrrt nunr.

BOBBIN COONS (AP) interviews Sylvia Sidney, the girl who left Hollywood in a huff, but is back with a smile to play a Eurasion girl opposite Jimmy James Cagney in "Blood on the Sun." Miss Sidney confessed that the trouble with her was that "I was unhappy wherever I was in those davs. It had nothing to do with Hollywood hut I blamed it on pictures." "It has to happen," she gaid, "if you have the nii.slortune to become ternblv successful at the age of 20 and make as much money as I did. You're bound to be unhappy. It has happened to a lot of people in different fields of art, success that conies too soon. It's saddest when it happens to young writers, some of whom never work it out. Actors can get over it if they get a good rest." Your $100 war bond will help shorten the time front D-day to V'-day.
