THE TOTAL — "AMBITIOUS:" Dedicated to her' career, Audrey has tremendous respect for her director, Billy Wilder, here with hands on hips watching her in a scene with Gregory Peck. best say she's about the most normal person around. That is probably just prejudiced talk; if Audrey Hepburn is normal, nobody else is. For Audrey Hepburn is being hailed by critics as the most promising accress of this era. Some day she may be classed with Sarah Earnhardt and Eleanore Duse. Actually, she's at the beginning of her career, yet she is the most sought after performer in the business today. She has had only two decent-sized roles in movies, yet her studio. Paramount considers her their prize. She has had only two decent-sized holes -on the stage, yet Broadway is at her feet. She's won awards—top awards— in both. She's packed them in at the box-office. She's had a fabu-i her more chance to act.

And she's probably burn's friends and associates, it;. only P 8rson ^" no knows why, isn't, easy to form a good picture of} her. There are contradictions. But. basically, they all say the same thing; She is a nice, normal, ambitious, hard-working young actress. That's the skeleton of Audrey Hepburn. The backbone is thafr'word "ambition". She pours everything she has into her work—so much so, in fact, that she is constantly under doctor's care. She is anemic and she aggravates it by her unrelenting drive. Here's an example of the way she works. She was making a 10- minute recording for the UN. They were to send it for rebroadcast in her native Belgium. Lots of people have made them, just reading the script and listening to it played, back and then leaving. Average time: 15 minutes. Not Audrey Hepburn. She memorized the script. She wasn't satisfied with the first recording. Or the third. It took her an hour and a half to get it so she was satisfied, j She is the same way with her; acting. She works days on a single scene, and keeps working at home after rehearsal. She is a perfectionist, rarely pleased with her own performances. "I should have done that scene better," she'll say, as she watches rushes from her films. Or she'll study a scene that had given her trouble and she'll say. "Now I know what Willy meant about doing such-and-such." Willie is her director. Billy Wilder, a THEATRE OSCEOLA YOUR FRIENDLY THEATRE Relax in Air . Conditioned Comfort would end 10 minutes later than ing. unsual, so the party actually ran only about an hour. The guests were somewhat miffed. These two stories illustrate one basic part of Audrey Hepburn's make-up that many people nowadays overlook—she's a human be- with good features and just like anybody else. Since her smashing triumphs on stage and screen, many of her fans nave somehow reached the conclusion that she is something super-human, half sprite, half woman. She isn't. She's very real. She has her likes man she respects tremendously. Those who've worked closest with her stand in awe of her ambition. bad They call her "dedicated" to her career. Yet it's not ambition for fame or fortune. She has not hatred oi money, far from it. But she'll pass up a fat part for one that offers and dislikes her love affairs, her weak points. Those who know her Algeria once was known a$ Numidia. IN KOREA — Pvt. Talmagp Carnell, son of Mrs. Lizzie Car n-"" is currently on duty in Korea. His wife.
