"Well, you know how much I wanted to be in a show like 'Sound of Music'--me being a fresh TV upstart," Miss Marlowe said. "I'd stopped doing the night club bit. I was making good money, but nobody knew I was alive." She'd been a regular on A r t h u r Godfrey's TV show until both she and Lary Puck were "fired at the time of their marriage, and now here was her great opportunity. . "The trouble was," Marion recounted, "I couldn't make myself heard when I spoke on stage. I couldn't project. "I could belt a song pretty loud but when I spoke, they couldn't hear me out front; panicked. I thought, 'My God if they can't hear me in the fourth row they've got to re place me.' Broadway.

"She told me, 'You talk just as though you were to hit a high C singing. You really blast.'" And Marion was soon projecting. "Mary Martin gave me her secret," she says.

She starts singing the reprises Things' of 'way, 'My 'way Favorite back off the working stage, and that voice cuts -through like a knife." Ensconced now in a smash hit, Marion Marlowe can look back good-humoredly on the night club period that followed her departure from the Godfrey show. "I learned so much. But in night clubs when you sing, you're fighting liquor, you're fighting a steak, you're fighting the broad the guy brought to the club with him." MARION GOT HERSELF two acting teachers--one her lusband, Larry Puck, who impressed on her: "Talk slowly, go off slowly." The other was Lee Strasberg. Puck had a slight heart attack late last summer. "The day I auditioned for dodgers and Hammerstein," vlarion said, "1 finished and went to get my wrap when they said, 'Would you sing something more, please?' "I realized that a singer is a can of soup and you've got to be a better can of soup than any other singer. "I leaned on the piano and sang 'Just My Bill,' very softly. Then I got rny coat and went to the hospital to see Larry. "While I was at the hospital 1 got a call from my agent who said, 'Welcome to Jerry Keeps Jerry Under Sfrict Curb HOLLYWOOD W -- Hov does Jerry Lewis, movie pro duction tycoon, deal wit Jerry Lewis, funnyman?

"» m:u:M :i-i MOOUCTION WELL PAID DUB She Can't Afford to Be Seen on Movie Screen HOLLYWOOD C«--One of the best paid actresses in Hollywood is seldom seen on the screen. She is attractive June Foray, who dubi voices for other actresses--sometimes the leading lady. In one film, a well known actress was cast opposite a deep-voiced male star. . "When the picture was completed," June recalls, "the producers found that audiences would have laughed the leading lady right out of the theater. Her voice was 'way too high and squeaky for the lower registers of the male star. . "I was called in to dub the whole picture." · June makes plenty from movies and television but her biggest income is from commercials on radio. . "I make as much for a half hour's work on a radio commercial as I could for a full day's work as a visible actress," she says. "Sure, it does something to your ego but when those residual checks start coming in every time the commercial is replayed, your ego is soothed so nicely. . .
