By Sanford Abrahams '··"HIS story has been turned clown by two movie producers, No. 1 commenting, "Such things don't happen any more," No. 2 likening it to Owen Davis' tear-jerking New York melodrama of the fin de siecle -- "It's as corny as 'Nellie the Beautiful Cloak Mode!.' " What neither knew was that it's about a real person who is one of modern Hollywood's own--Bambi the $100- an hour photographer's-mrxl- el-lurncd-actress -- and that it's true. Biimbi Hamilton, as the town knows her, was "Miss Jet Freight of J958," "Miss Varga Girl of 1959," and last year's "Miss March" on the cover of Playboy magazine. She works regularly on TV and makes her theatrical film debut as a chorine chum of Diana Dors and Dianne Foster in Allied Artists' "King of the Roaring 20s -The Story of Arnold Kothslein," which has David Janssen as Broadway's boss gambler of the title role, and Mickey Rooney as the big man's little tinhorn pal, Johnny Burke. BEHIND THE shapely facade (37-26-37) of this statuesque brunette with the big brown eyes, soft voice and ladylike manner lurks Aleane Burkhardt (SS 518-42-3565) of Caldwell, Idaho, the eldest of three children with whom her mother was left on the 3y 2 - ncre remnant of a farm after a divorce when Aleane was four. "For 15 years from then un- l i l I left Caldwell we were on stale relief," she says frankly, "and J don't remember we ever had anything except that bit of land with the little house on it, a few chickens, and a well." The Burkhnrdt case was well known in Caldwell, where, she mentions, "there were a lot of wealthy people." It was a situation likely to torture a proud spirit. Unable to keep up with the other girls in a material way, Bambi-A 1 e a n e made few friends and grew up a lonely person. C A L D W F I . L also was growing up. The farm remnant, only five blocks from the depot, found itself in an industrial district. "People wanted it, but they never offered what it was worth," Bambi said. Spirited mother Burkhardt put a $75,000 price on il, and wouldn't take less. But she fell behind on her rising taxes. The city council sympathetically gave her 10 years to pay up. Then Bambi's sister, Carole, came down with diabetes. "We couldn't afford proper treatment; she was simply wasting away. And I just couldn't earn aivy money to take care of her; there was nothing for me in Caldwell. "My big chance came when a girl whose parents were taking her to Los Angeles for a vacation invited me to go along, all expenses paid. Mother said, 'Go--get a job, and send home money to take care of your sister.' So I came. I got a job as a carhop." ENTER A customer name of John Diiston, actor, sometime manager of a model agency, and part-time actor- miinager. He became acquainted with Bambi, learned her story, told her she ought to try modeling for photographers, gave her a few leads, which she followed up. Meanwhile, back at the ranch: Despite the 10-years' grace agreement, the old place was sold for taxes; the mother, sick daughter, and teen-age son were to be evicted. But Bambi was doing pretty well now. She'd been on 32 magazine covers in one month and had crashed television. She brought mother, sister and brother David to Hollywood, where she had a $250-a-month a p a r t m e n t . She put Carole into a hospital. The girl is out now, and thriving. And now Dambi has turned her attention back on Caldwell. "I've got two Boise lawyers working on our case, and they feel sure we're going to get our property back." There you have it, the story of one spunky Hollywood glamour girl, the town's own "NelliV the Beautiful Cloak Model." What do you think--would it make a picture? Hollywood didn't believe Bambi Hamilton's life story. Bambr debufs as a chorine in Allied Ariists' "King ol Ihe Roaring 20's--The Sfory of Arnold Ro-thstein."
