W) -- | Actor Edgar Buchanan is a handy man to have around a movie set--. he is a licensed dentist. "I guess I've given away thou- eands of dollars worth o£ free advice in the last 12 years," says Buchanan, who practiced in Eugone, Ore., before coming to Hollywood. He thinks he's looked Into darn near as nTany mouths on s o u n d stages as he did when ho had an office. On several occasions, when no practicing dentist was available, he's given emergency treatment to fellow workers stricken with tooth troubles. Likft that time near K a n a b, Utah, when he was on location for a. western film and a wrangler turned up with an abcesaed molar. Buchanan drove tho man to town to find a dentist. "The only one available," he says, "WM at a church social. We drove him to his office and he asked m« if I'd do] th» honors. Said he wanted to see how they did it lit the biff cities. I showed him and ho said St was a, good clean job." On another western location, rector Henry Hathaway developed a jaw infection. Buchanan took him to town and found the only dentist was away. Persuading a nurse to let him use the dentist's equipment, Buchanan cut the infected bone out of Hathaway's jaw. Tho actor has also put a temporary cap on a tooth MacDonald Carey chapped in a. fight scene and made emergency repairs on one of George Brent's bridges. Buchanan practiced for 10 years !n Oregon but says Ms heart ·wasn't in It. Ha spent all h i s spare time acting with Little Theatre groups and was for a time assistant to tile head of the drama department at tho University of Oregon. Finally he decided to switch to acting completely. He and his wife -- a dentist, too -- came to California and he enrolled at the Paaa dena Community Playhouse, He performed 11 roles befor'e That was the clincher. Miss t h e !
