Mr,. Jolm 'C! ing for approximately three times a truck driver's pay. He ought to be getting nbout $1500 a week by ordinary Hollywood standards, and it's true the studio occasionally gives him handsome bonuses But the? company will not raise his contract-wage. So he has to be a very £,cod little boy to get his bonuses, working all the time and taking any roles the studio hands him. Take Mickey Rooney. There's a lad who's beginning to get up ir the dough. But he's still a long way from a salary commensurate '•vitb his box office popularity. The Motion Picture Herald's annual poll of - exhibitors shows Rooncy topping everybody else in Hollywood, arid-by a considerable margin, too. But his- regular salary is only $1000 a- week for 40 weeks, with a tidy bonus of $25,000 for each picture' he completes. If he .were to carry on through the seven years of the agreement, his weekly *age would be $3000 at the last. - From the beginning, Rooney probably will make four pictures a year and will collect a total of $15G ? GOO, But that isn't so ' much for the Box Office Champion when you consider Bing Crosby—No. 7 on the popularity list^-just signed a new deal with Paramount which will pay him about $700,000 for four pictures a year. Deanna pur- bin gets about $260,000 and earns every dime of it. Ginger Rogers, whose RKO contract expires May' 1, is demanding a hew deal at $150,000 a picture and 'only two of ihem a year. WHAT'S ANN SHERIDAN WORTH? Now, if Ginger Rogers and Carole Lombard can get $150,000 a •Jicker, or about $10,000 a week while working, how mush would you say Ann Sheridan Ls worths In the Motion Picture Herald poll, Miss Sheridan was only one ^ace behind Miss Rogers as a box office a'ttraL'tion. and 18 places ahead of Miss Lombard. But Ann Sheridan's salary is $600 a week. It- would be, at least, if she were not- still on suspension with no salary at all. Several weeks ago, exhausted by a ;su2- cession of pictures which followed each other so closely that sometimes she didn't have Lime to read the new script- to get an idea of the role, Oomphy Annie went home and sent worjg to the Brothers Warner that*" she would be "leased to resume her toil "^'ler 3 new contraci calling for $2000 a. week. Or less, if they'd let her make one picture a year at an- other studio. A acre nave been, numerous conferences between studio executives ana Miss Sheridan's agent The company has offered a $250 we«kly "bonus," which could be stopped at any time. It also "has mentioned $1000 as a possible salary. But Annie isn't interested. She's wondering if' i't wouldn't be fun to go oa'cic to Texas and teach school.
