I learned from a Hollywood blurb that a -new, young face was going to appear in a top-budget upcoming movie, "The Way West," and that the newcomer was a Carnegie Tech grad, Katherine Justice by name. i The pleasant voice at Tech informed me that the girl's parents, Mr. and Mrs. William Justice, resided at 500 Edgewood Rd., and they might give me more in- . , formation about their screen star daughter. So I called-and, surprise, Katherine herself answered the phone. (I presumed she was in Hollywood.) She was spend ing the hou- ) ' i "i NOW LISTEN As Mat Helm, the fearless espionage agent, Dean Martin is adept at telling everybody off, as indicated in this scene of "Murderers' Row.V The gtrl on the receiving end of the lecture in the film at days with her e Gateway is Camilla Sporv.

But she vividly remembers when she won the all-state beauty contest and was crowned Miss Ohio when she was not quite 18. In the ensuing Miss Universe .contest at Miami Beach she was disqualified because of her age. Way Back In I960 Undismayed she returned to Ohio, wrote to Tech, was audi' tioned and accepted as a student. That was in 1960 and four years of intense study, and training followed as she learned the basics of her craft ' V. . It wasn't easy, she- admits, but she worked hard, appeared in a number of campus productions. Couldn't take time off for the Pittsburgh Playhouse. "Tech kept me busy, always on the go, but I appreciate what it did for me." '' Next step from Tech, on graduation in 1964, to the Front Street Theater in Memphis, then to Washington's Arena stage where, among other theatricals she starred as Lola in "Damn Yankees," the part created on Broadway by Gwen Verdon, Later, a tour with a company doing "Nobody Loves an Albatross." . . 6f Volley' Opened Gates , Ultimately, Hollywood to try out in a couple of pilot films which never got off the ground. "Big Valley" was a smash hit and opened up the gates of Hollywood for her. , Harold Hecht, who makes a habit of "discovering" new talent, happened to spot Miss Justice in a segment of "Big Valley." Before she could leave the TV studio ne was taiKing to her on the phone. ' Result: A big role in "The Way West" and with three leading men, some very well-known guys named "" Kirk Douglas, Robert Mitchum and Richard Wtdmorfc. Her director in "The Way West" was the son oi the late Victor McLaglen, Andrew, whom I met here a year ago when he came to Pittsburgh in behalf of his film, "Shenandoah," starring James Stewart and Rosemary Forsyth. - Tney Were II Nice Men "He's the sweetest man," said Katherine of Mr. McLaglen. "And those wonderful men, Douglas, Widmark and Mitchum, were just grand to me while we were making the movie and needing help." u Another "sweetest man" is Vale Robertson with whom she made an episode in "The Iron Horse." She'll let me know, she said, when this episode will be shown in 'about a month. ' I'll see it, for I like to watch those dinky little locomotives, the kind I used to help repair during school vacations in summer in the High Rockies. And a pretty face such as that of Katherine is easy on the eyes, too. United Artists will release "The Way West," based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by A. B. Gutherie Jr., next summer. Originally it was planned to release it for the holidays, but the ballyhoo boys of U. A. wanted more time in building a thumping publicity campaign for the film. . Katherine told me she was about to fly to New York to audition for two shows, a comedy and a drama. ; Which does she prefer? "Makes no difference just so it's a good play and the part is right for me." After the auditions she'll return to the West Coast for TV shows and, in time, another movie. And, maybe next Christmas, another nice vacation with mother and dad, who's vice president of American Bridge, subsidiary of U. S. Steel. Here And There "Murderers' Row" is doing such whopping business at the Gateway that it will remain there indefinitely . . . Through the nation in key spots it's piling up tremendous grosses. And one .time they were saying that Dean Martin without his pal, Jerry, would mean nothing at the turnstiles. His Matt Helm character has caught on with such speed that no longer will they call him the poor man's James Bond. The late Montgomery Cliffs last movie, "The Dc-I fectors," a spy thriller, is opening tomorrow at the ft Manor and Hollywood. Mocha Meril, French beauty, co-stars with Clift and Germany's Hardy Kruger. "Arrivederci, Baby," with Tony Curtis and three beauties Bosanna Schiaffino, Nancy Kwan and Zsa Zsa Gabor opens tomorrow at the Stanley ... Next week this house gets "Any Wednesday," based on the stage hit of the same name, and starring Jane Fonda and Jason Robards. Tickets for "Hello, Dolly!" are selling faster-in many cases in blocks of four to 10-than for any show in Pittsburgh the last 30 years. The two-week gross will probably set an all-time record for our town. FORUM - 'After the Fox," Peter BEVERLY ' HILLS PLAYHOUSE Sellers. Feature: 6:15. 8, 10. "Pygmelion," curtain et 8:30.
