'·''··· -' · - · · ' ^^ ·' By DICK KLEINER HOLLYWOOD (NEA) -A television show packager hired a research organization to tell him w h a t age group he should try to appeal to with his shows. "Good news," said the researcher. "You don't have to-shoot for teen-agers any more.". "Good," said the par. k- ager. "We can do more adult things then." "Oh, no," said the researcher. "We suggest you aim for even younger audi- nces -- the 9-10-and 11- WKJC'tflat} year-olds. That's the bulk of the viewers today." This might be a good time to do something based on a comic book character. · # * * SPEAKING of B a t m a n, that show is getting its top guest stars by using the old Amos B u r k e technique -giving them a chance to have fun and play w e i r d , wild and wonderfully different roles.

She's disappointed Because they cut out some of her best scenes: But she needn't worry; she's great in it, and looks like one of your better quality dreams. "I think the picture will be good for me," she says, "because it will change my image. And I've been wanting to do that for a long time. "They k e e p giving me parts as a 25-year-old sex- pot and, let's f a c e it, I haven't been 25.for some time. Maybe I can still play those young things, but it's a strain. I think it's possible to g r o w older gracefully, and I'd like to act my age." Frank talk, from a 26-year old. * * » » .

' . When things are going well, you're not supposed to do anything that might cause the gods to notice--they m i g h t take your happiness away." Cassavetes is of G r e e k descent and Gena says that his mother, a l t h o u g h a highly sophisticated woman, used to pin a little stone behind his lapel when he was a boy--to keep away the attention of these jealous gods. And G e n a has been Greekified to a certain ex- .tent. "On New Year's D a y," she says, ''they asked me to make a wish for something .1 didn't have last year that I wanted. I said 1 just hoped 1966 would be as good as. 1965. I said we had a wonderful son and a lovely baby girl--and John said, ' B i t e your tongue, the gods might hear you.'" The one thing (and please, gods, don't . listen) she'd like is a chance to play an interesting good girl. "I've been having. a run of bad girls," she says. "And I must say I've been enjoying it.

No commercials, no screaming disc jockeys. Just stereophonic music to help you wile away the milei on the highway. The tape cartridge market is the talk of the recording business, and both record companies and car dealers are anxiously eyeing the millions that might be reaped from the new field. * * * *" CAR STEREO seems so simple that it is surprising that someone didn't develop it sooner. Speakers are spotted in various locations in th« car. A player is located under the dashboard. AH the driver has to do If turn on the machine and insert a plastic cartridge containing a continuous loop of tape. Instant stereo. According to B i 11 b'.p a r S, which devoted a full issue to tape - cartridge recently, the new business started with the invention of George Eash, a Los Angeles engineer. He began tinkering with a continuous-play tape in 1953 and four years later had developed a cartridge lhat contained 1,200 feel, or an hour of music. Four years ago, Earl Muntz, the onetime Madman Muntz of used-car selling, started merchandising car installations and tape cartridges. The big push for the industry came last year when Ford offered as an optional feature in its 19G6 cars a car stereo system developed -jointly by RCA and Lear Jet Corp. THE INNOVATION appears o have been a success: The iest indication of that is tha eport that ' General Motors vill offer stereo lape as an iptional feature in its 1967 :ars, and Chrysler is expected o follow suit. What does car stereo cost? If you were buying a new Thunderbird, you could get a layer for $127.56. Instal- ations can be made in your iresent car from $79.95 up. Cartridges cost from $2.95 for he cheaper pops to $6.98 for or^hair music. On the Sunset Strip is a a flrivc-in tape city, where pretty girl. 1 ; in shorts help cus-' omers learn about the joys of stereo in the car. The place r e p o r t s installations %j* j Model T Ford, and a hearse, he latter including speaker acUs to broadcast funeral strains for graveside ceremonies. * * * * SOME RECORD executives re viewing the new field with lone tempered by caution. "The tane cartridge busi- less "ffcrs (he threat of a oom," said Capitol's A l a n Livingston. "But I believe the system will not be a mass business unless tape cartridge systems are also introduced nto the home. The affluent driver may install stereo, but :he average citizen will not invest in a library unless he can' also use it at home." Most home tape recorders don't handle cartridges. Car stereo offers many possibilities. Actor Eddie Albert uses his to study, lines for his "Green Acres" TV show while driving to the studio. Others learn foreign Ian- gauge while coraa'sting.
