TuetJ.y, October 14,1M7_ Hollywood Today Abbott And Costello Plan Big Game Film By LOUELLA O. PARSONS HOLLYWOOD, Oct. 13—(INS) Lou Costello, who fell and hart himself, is getting better fast- and wasn't laid up nearly as long as his doctors feared. Lou tells me he's crazy about the comedy he and Bud Abbott are making for their 23rd picture. The boys are going to be seen as jungle explorers and have teamed up with game hunter Frank Buck, himself. Instead of doing '"Bring 'Em Back Alive'" they have changed the title to "Bring 'em Back Dead." REMEMBER the furore in Hollywood not long ago when Michael ("Mickey") MacDougall, the gambling detective, came here and exposed a group of card sharp- ers who were taking certain movie folk in gin rummy games? MacDougall's exploits will be the basis of a movie to be called "Queen of Hearts'! which is being dangled before the interested eyes of Eddie G. Robinsons-Eddie to play the card detective, of course. Hal Roach, jr. is one of the backers, along with producer-agent, Jan Grippe. WHEN ROBERT SIODMAK gets back here the 25th of this month he'll talk with Burt Lancaster about directing "Kiss the Blood off My Hands," Burt's first independent. There's no one better qualified to do these murder melodramas than Siodmak, excepting of course, Alfred Hitchcock, the old maestro of movie murders. CHATTER IN HOLLYWOOD: Hedy Lamarr, never a girl to hide her feelings, isn't letting herself brood over her latest heartache as she did when she and John Loder were • going on the rocks. Hedy has bought a $10,000 wardrobe, which in her case isn't wild extravagance. She let herself get very run down wearing mostly slacks and bandanas for ao long that I scolded her in print and told her stars owed it to their public to be more glamorous. One girl who has been a wonderful friend to Hedy is Lana Turner. It's on Lena's advice Hedy has gone out socially. TOO MANY '"JENNYS" on the movie market particularly "Portrait of Jenny" coming up about the same time is responsible for changing Jeanne Grain's "Apartment for Jenny" to "An Apartment for Susie." Bill Perlberg, who is producing Jeanne's picture, tells me he has made another switch. He's converting Richard Widmark from a heavy to a hero which means he'll carry the romantic interest with Jeanne in this. KEN MURRAYS next movie fc to be an old-fashioned melodrama in -which birds will operate toy chains. The heroine will be tied to the tracks just as Pearl White used to do in her serial days. Ken's first, called "Bill and Coo," is reported as a classic. He was so encouraged over the whole thing he has put the owner am! trainer of the birds, George Burton, under a six-year contract, and together they are making a series of these pictures, released through Republic. SNAPSHOTS OF HOLLYWOOD collected at random: Barbara Stanwyck will be godmother to Peter Godfrey's new daughter, Barbara, when the little lady is baptized October 19. Was it an accident June Haver was at Pebble Beach last week while Dr. John Duzik participated in a golf tournament there? June says it was. The Mona Freeman-Pat Nerney baby is expected early next week. Angela Lansbury's mother, Moyna McGill, has been asked by Tennessee Williams to go to London for the lead in his play, "Glass Menagerie," and it seems more than likely she'll accept GEORGE JE88EL and Joan Barton, a new duet.. She .also will appear with him on his personal appearance tour. I should have taken Tommy Adams' wager when she wanted to bet $1000 she and George would get married. The Matsuo Brothers of Hawaii have offered Allan Jones $5,000 a week to tour this winter in Japan, and it's possible Allan may accept Well, after Al Frisco's telegrams, seems he's doing his old cigar routine at Charlie Foy's once more. The first night he pulled out his false teeth with his cigar and couldn't have been more surprised. Craig Rice admits she and Leslie Charteris, author of "The Saint" series, have had any number of arguments, but she says it isn't true that they had a knockdown battle. That's all today. See yon tomorrow. Widow To Attend Rites Mrs. Betty J. McCubbin, 2942 North 27th street, will leave soon for Jefferson City, Mo., where she will attend the funeral of her husband, Second Lt Troy H. McCubbin, whose remains have been returned to the United States lor burial. Snyder Gives Study Report NEW YORK, Qct 13—(NANA) Europeans are beginning to unite to help themselves and they are beginning to appreciate American aid, according to John W. Snyder, secretary of the. treasury, who arrived this afternoon aboard the United States lines flagship America after studying economic conditions in England, France and Germany. "We have been too hesitant about the part we have played in aid, but at last we are beginning to let the people .know where their help is coming from and they seem to appreciate it now." said Sayder. "I LEFT LONDON with the conviction the British people, united in a common effort, will surmount their present difficulties and I think there is growing indication that these people are actually uniting to face squarely their problems," Snyder continued. "In Berlin we discussed in some detail crucial problems looking to the expansion of German production, both for the benefit of Europe and for the improvement of economic life in Germany. I have made no reference to it in connection with the Marshall Plan, but German economy must be considered in discussing European economy." The treasury chief said he spent many hours in Paris discussing French economic conditions and prospects of Europe as a whole. "WHILE I RAVE HADE an initial examination of the preliminary report of the group in Paris studying the Marshall Plan, I am not yet prepared to comment 'on it publicly, as-1 should first prefei to discuss this matter with the President and George Marshall, secretary of state, and other officials of the United States government," Snyder declared.. "Having observed at first hand in Britain, France and Germany the great need for food, I urge every American to co-operate fully with the citizens' food committee so that the hungry in Europe may not go unfed," he said. In the Crimean war appeared the first modern army medicine service, the first telegraph line between battleline and home front, the first ironclads, the first news camera. MSALIRKI7XTKHI?
