The Second Youth Of A Youth HOLLYWOOD, CALIF.— These are days of discovery for Barry Livingston. He's jfinding things out about him- pelf thatr mOft bgys f|p<;l ou^t yp^rs ear'lter .v ,."He, didn't have tithe theti.. He iias working, Livingston, for eight years, v/Jis Ernie on My Three Sons. It meant that, between the ages o| 10 and 18, he was not a real, ordinary boy. He was an actor. Hlfe whole life waf pointed in that direction. There was no tithe for such things as thinking about his future. • Now, with My Three Sons ^; show of the past, Barry Livingston has that time. And he's 4oing that kind of thinking. "I'm at the point now," Barry says, "when I'm considering my future and my career. When I was on the show, school didn't infringe on my life—I went to school mostly on the set. "But now 1 have to support myself. And I'm faced with the problem -- do I go to college, or to night school? Will I study psychology or cinematography? "What I've done is taken a year off from school to decide. I'm using that year to try and sharpen my skills -- acting and singing Once the year is out I'll have to coipe to some sort of decision. At the moment, I just don't know." Unlike many actors on continuing series, he wasn't faced with prolonged imernplpymei' after his show' fi9a^d. -Hfe ' a week after My Three Sons closed, he was doing something else. In the year he's been on his own, he's done guest shots on an Alan King special, Room 222, Sandy Duncan, Ironside. And he played Linus in the Hallmark Hall of Fame special, "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown," which will be telecast on NBC- TV Feb. 14. As he says, "What I'm doing now is working on surviving," and, so far, he's doing a good job of it. He says "CharlieBrown" was THIS WEEK IN PANAMA CITY the most fun he's ever had as an actor. If you know the characters, Linus is the one with the security blanket. Barry says he found the security blanket was comforting. "I still have the blanket they gave me on the show," he says. "I packed it away for posterity. It really gave me security -and I needed it, because that show was the first time I ever sang and danced in public." One thing -- no more glasses. They were part of his character on My Three Sons and he wore them because he needed them. But he says he no longer needs them. On The Set H you remember The Judge and Jake Wyler, a World Premiere pilot for Bette Davis, she played a retired judge turned detective who has so many pho- biias f^bout health she stays in hei" home, with its purtfied air and cleansed visitors. The idea has been made into another movie by Universal with these changes: Lee Grant now plays the judge who is a younger swinger who flies her own plane. Lou Antonio plays the fellow who works with her, the role played byDougMcClure earlier. ^#ofoocl King" RESTAURANT WELCOME CANADIANS Special For This Week FEB. 11-17 FRIED SHRIMP all the trimmiiigs $2.50 Op«n 7 aoMs^^'--'-^" Pfione For Take Out Orders 785-2952 4420 W.
