The Los Angeles Cultural i Heritage Board has made i the ancient Charlie Chaplin Studios an historic-cultural monument in honor of the man who made the little tramp a cinematic immortal 50 years ago. The city fathers may find it necessary to declare the studio a double historic-cultural monument in another 50 years, thanks to the brilliance of its present occupant -musician Herb Alpert. Alpert is as musically ingenious as was Chaplin comedically. The youthful trumpeter has converted the musty sound stages into what may be the most modern, sophisticated recording studios in history. Young men in their 20s and 30s sit behind consoles filled with dials, b u t t o n s , switches and tape equip- By VERNON SCOTT ment making new sounds.

The end product of an Alpcrt recording is better than a front row seat at a concert. Alpert's contributions to music would be enough were they limited to sound techniques. But his Tijuana Brass and its soaring popularity is as significant as his studio innovations. Maybe more so. Herb and the Brass have cut 11 albums. All were Gold Records before they went on sale based on advance orders by distributors. In his comfortable, tastefully decorated offices in Chaplin's old studio, Alpert is the antithesis of his music. * * * * WHERE it is bold, challenging and revolutionary, Herb is quiet, introverted and sensitive. He is unable to talk about himself comfortably. He appears equally ill at ease on camera. Asked why he was considerably less bold personally than .his music, Albert groped for words. "My horn is an extension of my 'being," he said haltingly. "I want to sing through the trumpet rather than play a brass instrument. There's a difference. It's my way of expressing myself. "About being free and easy on camera, I'm just a musician who made EARL WILSON'S BROADWAY The ONLY Way to Be Picketed STRAND, 1035 So.

I'm not an entertainer. I'm not particularly nervous on camera. I'm only being myself." * * * * ALPERT doesn't know a key light from a flashlight. Neither is he aware of his "good side" or up- singing. Rut when he puts that trumpet to his lips he creates a new world of sound. He is the first instrumentalist to reach the apex of his craft and simultaneously become a major star with the public. You may speak of Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, the Dorseys, Glenn Miller and all the other players of instruments, save a few pianists and guitar strummers. But none has shone as brightly as Alpert. He is to instrumentalists what Sinatra and the Beatles are to vocalists. Yet lie says: "My music reflects what I've lived. I play to suit my own taste because, as you know, there is no common denominator." NEW YORK -- 'What's so bad about being picketed? I like it. Twelve b e a u t i f u l blondes carrying picket signs wiggled t h e i r miniskirts up and down in front of my B'way office because 1 wrote a column saying "Brunettes are in charge of the world . . . Whatever happened to blondes? What bottle of peroxide did they disappear behind?" The dazzling darlings, who admitted that Clairol sent them, carried signs with thing slike, "Lucrezia Borgia was a brunette." I tried to get them to occupy my office and live here, like the pickets did at Columbia, but they were too smart. They stayed on the sidewalk. ^ * * * HAS E.W. heard there's a blonde in the White House?" one sign said. They also listed such blondes as Brigitte Bardot, Angela Lansbury, Joey Heatherton, Joanne Woodward, Catherine Deneuve, Jane Fonda, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Nancy Sinatra, Jane Morgan, Dina Merrill, Tuesday Weld, Mamie Van Doren, Marlene Dietrich, Twiggy, Carol Charming -- and Phillis Diller. "Which of those are really blondes?" I asked. They shrugged. But one of the 12 pickets swore she's a real blonde. One out of 12, that's a pretty good average, I guess. I wasn't so stupid say- BRIGnTE ANGELA ing brunettes rule the world. My Beautiful Wife is a brunette. Oh, I don't mean now, necessarily. Originally! I have a wonderful memory. The reason we don't hear about blondes is that blondes are naturally quiet, shy and retiring. * * * * "EVERYBODY tells me 'stay busy,'" Jane Russell said -- so she returned to work at the Flagship, Union, N.J., three months after the death of her husband Roger Barrett whom she'd married less than three months before. Jane's singing and dancing with long-time partner Beryl Davis. She goes to Toronto from New Jersey. Jane's bridegroom died of a massive heart attack Nov. 18. "He was only 47 and strong as an ox. He used to carry me across the stage and I'm a big girl. That was in Chicago where we met last summer. The play was 'Here Today.' "And to think," Jane added, "we used to laugh at that title." * * * * WE GOT a flash that Dustin Hoffman was running around Central Park in the snow in his shorts. He was, too -- tennis shorts -- for a tennis scene on a snow-cleared court for his "John and Mary" film with Mia Farrow. He and Mia are working together so smoothly that everything is -- as the young set says -- "just whammo." Glenda Farrell, suffering a viral infection, went into a hospital. Violet Dunn took over her role in "Forty Carats" . . . Natalie Wood's in Kitzbuchel, Austria, with her fiance, Richard Gregson, producer of Paramoum's "Downhill." T O D A Y ' S BEST LAUGH: Pat Hemingway heard a H'wood producer sigh, "If only 1 could bor- rciw 5100,000, I'd be out of debt." WISH I'D SAID THAT: 1 A fellow e x p l a i n e d about TV violence: "It oc- curs at my house every time I want to change channels." EARL'S PEARLS: William Needles, featured in the B'way hit, "Hadrian VII," cherishes a review from early in his career. It says, "Mr. Needles gave a sew-sew performance." Van Harris tells at the Copa of the man who kept urging his delinquent son to open up a store, "and one night he did." . . . That's earl, brother. PACIFIC WALK-IN THEATRES!
