Producer Robert Jacks continues to learn. He received an odd item on the expense reports for "Prince Valiant," the CinemaScope swashbuckler now on the Paramount screen, with James Mason, Robert Wagner, Janet Leigh, Sterling Hayden and Debra Paget in leading roles. The charged item was for the services of a horse hired to haul a Viking ship which figures importantly in the film story. The highlight "prop" had been brought from the coast of England to Loch Dornie in the Scottish Highlands and part of the 350-mile trek the ship had to be tugged through locks by a small drifter. Halfway through the locks, the skipper called "quits' and told the Viking master target a horse to finish the trip. It was the Sabbath and nobody in the area worked. Also on the Paramount bill is a CinemaScope featurette about the Roger Wagner Men's Choir. riizh! h tn kn--w that I am at 8.15 in the Paris Theater withjtation of one or two feature pic ti father of R.ar.na. eight his new film The Philippines tures plus the latest newsreels. - p-ur. rn rwnce. and every Today." is a San Franciscan Opening bill at the Globe will thifg ti fine " I who received his training on na- feature a new laugh-propelled The con versa! ion I pattern tional radio and television net-thn harre the sam.
