Using an old-fashioned lure -- MONEY -- the new Tudor Inn, Firestone Boulevard near Imperial Highway, has attracted top name entertainers to its upstairs stage. Like Las Vegas, the Inn has an ambitious entertainment budget, spending from $20,000 to $35,000 a month on the salaries of its headliners. The average cost of each new weekly show has been $5,000 / with some ballooning to $10,000. The result has been instantaneous success, with hordes of spectators jamming the Throne Room to watch the antics of sucli stars as George Gobel, Frank Sinatra Jr., Louis Prima, Frank Gorshin, Mamie Van Dnren, the Pied Pipers and Jerry Van Dyke. On a recent Saturday night the room, which ran seal 275, had to t u r n away over 300 paying patrons. The big-name policy was introduced lale in February by Edouard Regnier and Tom Stansbury, the Inn's top officials. They convinced the establishment's owner, Lytton Savings, that big budget shows would put Norwalk on the entertainment map in a hurry. Their theory worked so well that Regnier has moved on to organize another night club for Lytton, while 31-year-old Stansbury has been promoted to president and general manager of the Tudor. I visited the Inn last week to catch Gobel's first show nt 9 p.m. Although it was Wednesday, generally not a big night on the supper club circuit, the room was packed with guests.who paid S2.50 admission each. They definitely got their money's worth, because Lonesome George, backed by a quartette, was a smasheroo, winning loud yuks for his beautifully timed drolleries and crashing applause for his superb singing voice. DIMINUTIVE GOBEL (5 feet 4'/ 2 inches and MO pounds) revealed a fine ad lib sense, working in neat jokes as he conversed with the audience. He used several routines from his celebrated TV shows, enlarging them with funny bits tailored for night club appetites. Although the additional material was risque, it was done in the besl of taste--often quite subtly. Gobel is a master of the slow, delayed buildup which is climaxed by a quick blockbuster of a lag line, usually, delivered with the finesse of a brain surgeon. For his week's work. Gobel was paid $5,000. The Tnn's highest weekly bud^el so far--.$10.000--went for a show which combined Frank Sinatra Jr., Frank Gorshin (the "Riddler" on Batman), the Pied Pipers and Sam Donahue's orchestra. Young Sinatra revealed a modest talent; he'll never be a Sinatra Sr. Gorshin was the hit of the show, receiving a 2 0 - m i n u l e ovation which brought tears In his eyes. The Tudor has become an "in" spot for the Hollywood crowd, attracting the patronage of such notables and their friends as Sinatra Sr.'s ex-wife Nancy, singer Jaye P. Morgan and multi-millionairess Doris Day. Remaining true to her fan clubs, 42-year-old Doris sipped no hard liquor while on thn premises, indulging in a soft drink. This week's schedule features The Partners, fast swingers who cut up in the mood of Sam Butera and the Witnesses. They conclude their engagement with Friday night's performances. Admission is $1 per show. Saturday night, Mary Kaye and the Frivolous Five will be the headliners. Sunday night, Mary will be backed by ··'; a nsr-a.' e" ; THE FOOD AND FUN CENTER OF LONG BEACH Family Styli Lunchtons--Dinner 'til 12:30 A.M. || Wonderful Saljds, Sle.k Prima Rib and Seafoods af Roaionablt Price*, and Free-Pouring Bartenders to Pleal.

LOTS OF WONDERFUL DF.SSF.RTS TOO -- Allan Carlsson, hard-working, soft-spoken proprietor of the Villa Key Smorgasbord, 800 E. Ocean Blvd., in the Villa Riviera building, bases his culinary efforts on a sincere philosophy. "I'm never satisfied w i t h my food." he says. "1 keep trying to improve it all the time." As a result his guests find themselves enjoying superb smorgasbord luncheons and dinners, prepared with imagination and displayed beneath a s t u n n i n g l y long, glassed counter. Villa Rey charges $1.95 for dinner, a bit more t h a n some smorgasbord restaurants, but the added quality more than makes up for it. During our visit there last week, my wife, small daughter and I were impressed by the restaurant's cheerful yellow linen tablecloths and attractive decor. First we neaped our plates with samples from the 18 appetisers and salads, including fruit salad with w h i p cream, sliced apples, .lello, rhubarb, chicken salad, marinated herring, sea food salad, canned sweet figs, potato salad, cole slaw with apples, carrot-raisin-pineapple salad, beet salad, piclcles, macaroni salad, vegetable salad, beet-apple salad with whip cream, bean salad and tossed green salad. While we ate those with mounting satisfaction, wp received friendly attention from pig-tailed blonde waitress Eva Magnusson Martin, 21, who came to this country a year ago from Gottenberg, which she describes as "the Long Beach of Sweden." We also received kindly attention from Allan's hostess wife, Rigmor, a beautiful blonde who is nearly 6 feet tall and has tresses 30 inches long. Visiting the hot dish counter, we watched Allan carve delectable, juicy slices of roast round of beef and roast lamb. If we'd wished we also could have had fried chicken and-Swedish meatballs, but we settled for kernel corn, mashed potatoes, green beans and cranberry sauce. The price included excellent, freshly baked Swedish bread (which can be purchased at 50 cents a loaf) plus our choice of such rich desserts as strawberry chiffon pie, coconut cream pie, layer cake or half a dozen ice cream varieties. Verdict: Lmphatically we judge t.he Villa Rey smor- fiosbord as AAAA! The restoura/:' will be open Easter Sunday, serving thai smorgasbord from noon fn .9 p.m. fil. no price increase. WHERE TO FIND THEM: Talented, personable Paul Real and his groovy trio play for dancing nightly in the upstairs Bamboo Room at the Tahitian Village, Rosecrans Avenue and Lakewood Boulevard.
