A-IO ALBUyUtKuUt JOURNAL April 17, 1961 Louella'i Movie-Go-'Round Singers, Frienis Make Big Noise Over Presentation of 'Grammys By UH E1X A O. PARSONS HOLLYWOOD The contestants and their friends at the National Aradirny of Recording Arts and Sciences made as much noie over their grammys as we will make over our Oscars at the academy awards. It was a very pleasant evening I was the guest of Noll Hefti who made Dons Day s Elizabeth Taylor Heavy favorite To Win Oscar SANTA MONICA, Calif. (UPI) Elizabeth Taylor l a heavy favorite to cap her recent victory over near fatal lilneM bv winning an oscar tonight at the 33rd annual Academy Awards ceremony here. Hesides being sentimental. favorite for the top actress kenzie. I think Bobby is mnk jnon for fcurope, tna saia there are three times as many record companies In Great Britain as there were a year ago. Pnul was the first president of Num. All in all It was an interesting evening, and it was nice to see some of my friends in the record business Dorothy and Clenn Walluch, the Voyle Gilmores, the Lee Gillettes, Dick Pierce who brought Ann-Margaret over to our table. She looks much bigner than she does on TV, but she really most recent album. His charming wife is former singer. I;h4 8 personality didn't know I was to present an award with Jimmy McHugh until we arrived at the party he forgot to tell me. Bob Newhart, newest of the newcomers, and Ray Charles, wonderful blind singer, carried off four grammys. Bobby Darin and Sandra Dee came over to talk to us and 1 told Bobby I thought it wa too bad that Sandra, who looked so pretty, wasn't with him on the stage when he presented the Grammy award. He did his stint with Giselle Mac- Hear tell that Frank Sinatra has bought most of Kanub, Utah, the town where so many movies are made. Well, that should give him the privacy he wants while he's filming "The Badlands." I also understand that he's building a private airfield so that he can have his own airline service. My boy, Doug McClure, will play one of the male leads In "Badlands." I hope he won't be pushed off Into oblivion. ALso Ding's boys, Lindsay, Philip and Dennis are pencilled In for parts, and will be on hand when Mr. S. culls "camera" on May 22 for his members of the summit clan Dean Martin, Peter Lawford, Joey Bishop and Sammy DavU Jr. A tip from New York from a very reliablo source puts Hujjh O'Brlan and Sornya together again at Danny's Hideaway. They sat quietly in a corner, and this U nno time when Huuh's not talking. I found out that he's in New York getting ready for the tent shows he's going to do this summer. Ho opens first at the Drury Lane Theatre In Chicago May 18 in "Heaven Can Wait," then on June 13 he goes Into summer stock in "Dcstry Rides Again," remaining until September. No one seemed to know anything about Soraya, but I am told she slipped quietly Into the country just to meet Mr. O'Brlan, so let's not sell this romance short. If "Breakfast at Tiffany's" Is anywhere as good as Henry (Hank) Mancinl says, Paramount really will have a goodie. He went to San Francisco where the movie was sneak-previewed, and said in all his years of writing tunes for motion pictures, never has he seen such rave cards. Hank, who carried home three Grammy awards (best arrangement, best performance by an orchestra for his "Mr. Lucky" show, and best jazz performance) did "the score for the picture, and wrote "Moon River" with Johnny Mercer for Audrey Hepburn. He says Audrey U wonderful in the pic ture. That's very easy to under stand Isn't she always? wara, MISS ii)lor iiisum were enhanced by ner performance as a woman of ill repute in "Butterfield 8." It was that role which won the dark haired actress her fourth oscar nomination. She has yet to win an academy award. Miss Tsylor only recently came back from London where ghe had been stricken with rear fatal pneumonia. Although she is still recuperating from the Illness, Miss Taylor will attend Monday's academy festivities, her secretary sail Competing against Liz for 1..jiMI iHmh JiAnnr, art Greer Carson (Sunrise at!rcntea ing a mistake by keeping Sandra in the background. (1 love him and hate to see him do it.) After all, she's a star In her own right. Ella Fitzgerald received her Grammy in New York. She carried home three, as did Hank MancinL Peggy Lee turned over her Grammy to her arranger and said he earned It. Sara Berner was the comedy relief of the evening that is, next to Mort Sahl who was a humorous master of ceremonies. Jo Stafford tells me she has a house in London Campobcllo), Shirley MacLalne (The Apartment), Deborah Kerr (The Sundowners), Me-Una Mercouri (Never on Sunday). Burt Lancaster Is being touted in mow Is circles aa a favorite to win tha best actor category for his portrayal of a f:r and brimstone preacher in Elmer Gantry." Jack Lemmon. winner of a supporting actor's oscar for 'Mr. Roberts'' in 1953 is dost on the heels of Lancaster for another golden statuette. Lemmon, who would be the first actor in academy history with oscars in supporting and starring categories if he won today, was nominated for hb role in "The Apartment." Others in the starrlr.g actor competition include Spencer Tracy (Inherit The Wind), Trevor Howard (Sons and Lovers) and Laurence Olivier (The Entertainer). "Apartment," nominated for oscars in ten categories this year, is expected to win the best picture award, overcoming "Sons and Lovers. "Elmer Gantry." "The Alamo" and "The Sundowners." Despite its tea nominations, "Apartment" is not expected to make a clean sweep of all those categories as "Ben Hur" did last year when that epic earned 11 awards. For director, Billr Wilder (Apartment), facet Alfred Hitchcock (Psycho), Fred Zln-nemano The Sundowners), Jack Cardiff (Sons and Lovers) and Jules Dassin (Never on Sunday). In the supporting actor competition, Sal Mlneo (Exodus) will vie for first place against reter Falk (Murder Inc.).
