PAGE TWO BLYTHEVTU.E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Jane Powell Finally Grows Up in Pictures BT BOH THOMAS HOLLYWOOD, July 10. W) — It VAS A long time a-coming. but Jane Powell finally gels to grow up In the movlts. The fiUrry-eyed blonde from Portland, Ore., won her opportunity the hard way. It came after June Allyson got pregnant and Judy Garland got temperamental. Those two were successively slated to dance with Pred Astairc In "Royal Wedding." When Allyson was excused and Miss Garland suspended, the Job fell to Jane. "The studio had to give it to me." she giggled, "everybody else Is pregnant." She referred to MGM's galaxy of nesting slars—Miss Allyson, Lana Turner. Bsllicr Williams, Cyd Charisse, Jean Hagen, "Gee," added Jane. "I have been hoping for this chance to dance with Mr. AstiUre so long, I wa.s afraid I wasn't going to get It." She was also afraid she was going to spend the rest of her movie life * a scatter-brained bobbysoxer. Although she became eligible to vote last April Fool's Day ana is a wife of eight months, her studio con- tinued U) cast her «s a Junior miss. "Why can't I grow up—like Elizabeth Taylor?" she once complained to me. "Elizabeth Is four years younger than 1 am and she gets Robert Taylor In a picture." Meanwhile, Jane's steady date In films was Scolty Beckett. "I tried to convince the studio I could play grown-up roles," she said. "Hut I roade no headway. And yet when I went out on personal appearances, the kids themselves would me. 'Why don't you grow up In pictures?'" Now she i* getting her wish to mature In a hurry. She plays Astaire's sister in the film, which Is a neat stretch of the studio imairln-. lion. Since Jane Is 21 out) Astiiiie 50, that means tlielr parents had them 20 years apart. But then, anything is possible In Hollywood. The young singer has already practiced with Astalre and finds him "very patient and understanding." "I was very nervous when we met for the first time at rehearsal," she said, "because I am not really a dancer. But 1 found out lie was nervous, too, because he hadn't done the dance in so long. We got along fine from Ihe start." The studio has never officially announced her for the role, although she knew It was hers n couple of days after Judy Oarland was removed from It. She was notified the day before Mls.s Garland pulled her widely-headlined tantrum. Jane went into rehearsals immediately. "J don't know why the announcement was withheld." she said, "unless the studio felt the time was bad." Jane realizes there can be no turning back to Juvenile roles now that she's playing a grown-up.
