By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD, UP)—Lot's look in on Betty Hutton, who says she is hovering "On Cloud No. 9" these days. The blond bombshell was resting between strenuous dance rehearsals with Fred Aslaire for "Let's Dance." She enthused about her role to follow—"Annie Get Your Gun." I "I'm so excited I can't sleep — I just lie there singing 'Doin' What ; comes Naturally,"' she said. "For four years I've been trying to do Annie. I haven't been happy with the pictures I've had since Buddy Desylva left Paramount and I pleaded with them to buy it for me. I really bawled them out when they let MGM get it." Betty said she never gave up hope that she would play Annie, even after the picture began shooting. Then Judy Garland was suspended for not. reporting to the set, and MGM began dickering for Betty. "First I wanted to be sure the studio wasn't, just, trying to punish Judy," she said. "But then I found she wasn't exactly happy with the role, anyway. "After all, Judy Is more the wide-eyed, retiring type. Annie calls for the loud kind of hokum that. I can do." At first, the two studios couldn't get together on terms. Betty said she was so distraught she couldn't talk, bhe even showed me the mascara steins on her couch. Then it. was decided to postpone "Annie" and let her do the Astair picture ! first. Already lined up to follow those two films immediately are the Mack Sennett biography (she'll play Mabel Normand) and the life of Theda Bara. "After that," said methodical Betty, "I'm going to retire and have two more babies." Gregory Peck jis another star who has been in the news. His eye infection on "12. O'clock High" was one of the factors that postponed "Quo Vadis" until next year. "Something happens on all my pictures," he moaned, "and usually it's because of horses. "I was thrown from a horse and broke my leg at the start of 'Yellow Sky.' It wasn't the horse's fault, though; I was racing him on a muddy track and he slipped. '"Duel in the Sun' takes the prize for the greatest number of mishaps. I was thrown three times in that picture, once on my neck." Peck has • no phobia against horses, but—he hasn't been on one since he finished his last western. Capsule review: "The Beautiful Blonde From Bashful Bend" (TCF) fails to be as intersting as its title, It has all the elements-color, zany story, comic cast and Betty arable's legs. But somehow it turns out to be a mess. The climax is a riotous gun duel in which no one scores a hit. The same thing goes for the picture. Aly, Rita Leave in Rain For Paris Honeymoon CANNTCS, France, May'31. (/Pi- Prince Aly Khan and'his brlrip, Rita Hay worth, left here on their honeymoon today in n soaking rain. Prince Aly, driving his grey Alfa Romeo car, intended to make a non-stop drive to Paris where they will arrive in about 10 hours.

Two Moslem imams (priests) journeyed from Paris to the Prince's lavish Chateau de 1'Horlzon for 'ie ceremony. Aly, heir to one of the world's greatest fortunes, refused to say what dowry he gave his bride. Statement, of the dowry is the main part of the Moslem ceremony. ALTON NASH CO., INC. 812 E.
