Fun The Salina Journal Saturday, January 18,1986 Page 23 2 Cooper films had same theme The Far Side Gossip By ROBIN ADAMS SLOAN King Features Q. I caught an absorbing Gary Cooper action movie on the TV late show, all about a ship's officer unfairly accused of a negligent act that cost lives, thus creating a maritime trial. Can you supply the title, which for the life of me, escapes me? — W.D. A. Oddly, Gary Cooper starred in two different movies with the same theme. Though produced two decades apart, they weren't remakes. The first, "Souls at Sea," was filmed in 1937; the second, "The Wreck of the Mary Deare," in 1959. Now it's up to you to recall which plot fits the deep-sea puzzle you're trying to fathom. Q. As a student of opera, I was impressed by an interview with Metropolitan Opera star Barbara Conrad, who told of her early, difficult years as a black undergraduate at the University of Texas, and how she successfully overcame issues arising from racism. Conrad ac- Cooper knowledged Harry Belafonte as her mentor and constant source of strength. Can you define the role he played in her life? — H.M. A. Harry Belafonte has been a mainstay of Conrad's career ever since the day he phoned her at college after learning of her difficulties, quietly saying, "Barbara, this is Harry Belafonte, and I want you to know there are people out here in your corner. What can I do to help?" Impressed with her fine singing voice, Belafonte remained in close contact, eventually helping to finance the remaining years of her tuition. He arranged for her to come to Manhattan, suggested cosmetic dental work, and offered to back her voice lessons. • Q. A biographer of Greta Garbo claims she possesses quite a droll sense of humor, yet he doesn't come up with specific illustrations. Is she really capable of being funny? — E.K. A. Garbo's dry wit surfaces mainly when she's comfortably in the company of those she knows well. The legendary star was strolling along Manhattan's East Side with a longtime friend when they passed the tramway to nearby Roosevelt Island, situated right across the river. "How much is the fare?" "Ninety cents," was the reply. "All you need is a subway token." "And, how much to return?" she continued. "The same amount," he explained. "That's a dollar eighty in all. I don't think I'll go," mused Garbo. "I may like it and never come back!" * * * Got a question? Write to Robin Adams Sloan at King Features Syndicate, Inc., 235 E. 45th St., New York, N.Y. 10017.
