Gary Grimes as he appeared in 'Summer of '42' Grimes grows up By Mary Murphy L.A. Times News Sen-ice. HOLLYWOOD Gary Grimes in "Summer of '42" was the personification of sexual naivete and innocence. In "The Culpepper Cattle Co.," he again was likeable and amusingly naive, a boy poised uncertainly on the threshold of mature male urgings. After those portrayals, it's a surprise to meet him. Beyond the · rose-tinted glasses, curly chestnut hair and puppylike grin certain to make teen-bopper hearts twitch, there is a quiet intelligence, a knowledge of life beyond his 17 years, a certain Scorpio mysteriousness which if unleashed on screen could well produce another kind of Grimes mania. As it was, his charm helped make "Summer of '42" such a whopping success that Warners is making a sequel, "Class of "44," again starring Grimes and the other two boys. " 'Summer of '42' was about the loss of innocence, but 'Class of '44' really makes no statement. It is very simple and enjoyable, a nice story," Grimes said. "It takes Hermie, Ostie and Benjie from high school graduation to college and fraternities and a girl friend my own age . . . no radical concepts in this film," says Grimes. But Grimes says there is growth and maturity in Hermie when he has to make a choice between going to college or joining the army, and when his father dies. "When Grimes first discussed "44," it was after school at the Brithwater Cafe, a cool, camp restaurant off the Sunset Strip where kids seem to hang out and imitate Spassky-Fischer. Fledgling chess players and chess tables line the bay-windowed wall. The next time, he was calling from a payphone booth 40 miles out in the country, "It's beautiful, I'm in the woods at an old gas station, there are open fields and an old barn and clear blue skies." He and costars Jerry Houscr and Oliver Conant and. a chaperone were camping out for the weekend. Five weeks into filming, he says. "I have a much betler feeling about this picture. I ' know what I am doing. There is a good spirit. The clothes are terrific. And we are treating it as a separate film which I think is the only way it should be done. It is related to '42 only througlT'our names and the title." Grimes started in show business in commercials at age 10. His mother, then a production assistant on The Young Mar- rieds, got him a two-line part on the show and he was hooked. He also feels that film-making is where he can make the most potent social statement. Grimes was 8 when John Kennedy was killed and it affected him deeply. "It made me start thinking politically and doubting our system and our officials. I've been working for candidates and causes ever since and will work for Sen. McGovern in this election." Through friends of his mother, Grimes at age 15 hears that Robert Mulligan was looking for a lead for "Summer of '42." Mulligan, who he describes as a very warm man, met and hired him. No screen test. "Class of '44" leaves two of the characters in college and one in the army, with infinite possibilities for sequels. But for now it's back to Burbank High School's class of 73, where his friends Md him about being a "star" while he puffs on an imaginary cigar. He's looking forward to the 72 election, backpacking and the fall season of the L.A. Philharmonic. Grimes likes Tchaikovsky, Prokofieff, Debussy -- not Alice Cooper nor the Rolling Stones.
