Sultry Yvonne Now Respects Exotic Roles Natives Love Those Films, Miss DeCarlo Finds in Near East By Bob Thomas HOLLYWOOD, Sept. 27 -- (Si-Sultry Yvonne DeCarlo, who has slithered through many an exotic epic, has returned from the Near East with a healthy respect for such films. She found the folks love 'em over there. Miss DeCarlo. first film star to perform in Israel, reported she played to riotous audiences there. Before her trip, she was not very fond of the "Arabian Nights" type of film she has often appeared in. "But I was amazed at how much the people over there liked those pictures," she remarked. "I talked to many natives -- cab d r i v e r s , hair dressers, hotel clerks -- who said they had seen "Schehera- zade* four and five times. And they seemed to have liked 'Cas- bah,' too, although I don't Â£now why. Every time I played a concert, someone would'yell, 'sing something from 'Casbah.' " No Illusions She added that the natives had no illusions about the authenticity of such films. "They would laugh at the inaccuracies, such as having a Persian robe on an : Arabian." she said. "But still ; they admire those pictures for ; their entertainment." Â· 1 Eddie Cantor, fiddler Jascha , Heifetz and musician Leonard : Bernstein have appeared in Israel, but Miss DeCarlo was the i first film personality to en- | tertain in the new country. She j played several concerts there, j singing and dancing many of her j movie routines. The results were j riotous. I i Stand In Aisles j ! "It would have happened t o . | any film performer playing Â· i there," she declared modestly, j j "At every performance, there were between 150 and 200 civilian and military policemen to hold back the crowds. The hall would hold 1,500 people, but always the side doors would be pushed open and many more would stand in the aisles, "My biggest worry was get, ting into the theater. The people j individually were very respect- i ful, but you know what mobs can do. I was never certain of getting out alive." Miss DeCarlo is just about the travelingest actress I know. Whenever she isn't busy on the j movie stages, she is packing up | for some faraway spot. About | the only places she hasn't been I are the Far East, India, Africa j and Sweden. ! South Africa Next | "And I've had an offer to appear in South Africa, so that will be my next trip," -she assured. "I hope to spend some time in Sweden on the same trip." Of all the countries she has visited, she likes Spain the best. (That could be because she met Mario Cabre, the bull-fighting poet, on her last, irip there.) The only drawback to Spain she added, was the fans -- "sometimes you find a crowd a block long following you." Paris is another matter -"they don't care about celebrities there: they are too busy enjoying life." She also likes Rome, Austria and England. In the latter place she feels the best, since it's like her native Vancouver. Right now she is heading out west--to play in an early Call ifornia epic with Joel McCrea, i Quite a traveler, this gal.
