'Personalities': Actors With Hard-To-Define Assignments By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP Television-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Television's winter personalities turn into summer actors whenever possible great. as the rewards are Personalities" Is, a word covering performers with hard to define assignments such as host, master of ceremonies, panel or game show regular and, of course, variety stars who can sing, dance or do comedy monologues. Long ago night club owners and summer stock producers learned the public turned out in droves to see in the flesh the people it had been watching daily or weekly on television. It no* is big business with a big money for established and popular stars. The going'rate starts at $5,000 a week, sometimes with a guarantee of 30 to 50 per cent of gross receipts Noel Harrison Has Charm Like Dad's By DICK KLEINER Hollywood Correspondent Newspaper Enterprise Assn. HOLLYWOOD (NEA) - I went over to MGM to watch Noel Harrison al work on the first day of shooting the new NBC series, The Girl from U.N.C.L.E. (which really should be called, simply, Nieces). Noel is Rex's son, of course, and he has his father's charm and considerably mere warmth and friendliness. "When I was 12," Noel says, "my father told me not to go into the entertainment field. He said that I would never make enough money to support him in his old age. But I don't think he worri c s about that any more — I fliink he'll be abb to support himself." Noel admits he was never sure what he wanted to do with his life — "I grew up in a mass of indecision." But eventually he decided acting folk singing were his life's work. Now he is a permanent southern CaJi- fornian, with his wife and four children. I was struck by his resemblance to Steve McQueen, particularly his hair, and the shape of his head and body. He wears his blond hair combed forward, somewhat liku David McCallum's except that Noel's is a bit on the wavy side. "This is the way I've worn when the box office returns go over a predetermined amount. Some famous stars earn more ihan $15,000 a week in summer theaters. It is easier for the regulars on panel and game shows to enjoy this summer moonlighting as their shows may be taped in advance or taping schedules can be set to match their convenience. During the next few months [hree of the four panelists oh only one show, "To Tell the Truth" will be making personal acting appearances. Tom Poston will Star in "The Well-Dressed Liar" in Miami. Orson Bean will take on "How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" in North Carolina. Kitty Carlisle has some singing engagements. Betsy Palmer of "I've Got a Secret" will tour in "Peter Pan". Steven Allen has nightclub dates arranged on the West Coast. Allen Ludden of "Password" and his wife, Beljty While, will appear together in "Bells Are Ringing". Gene Rayburn of "Match Game" will appear with his wife, Helen, and daughter, Lynn, in a production of "The Impossible Years." • MOVIE SCHEDULE (Continued From Page 5) lieves are married, are forced to make it true.
