L-.i.'.Vi-'jjmuii Wednesday. Feb. 2t, HHit Mansfield Newt-Journal 7 Best On TV Today j .Jje 'CVlAlOll cunS Peter Lorrc Says He's Very Well Stars Tonight On Playhouse 90 By STEVEN H. SCHEUER Reginald Rose has a topical drama about Algeria in "The Cruel Day" on Playhouse 99 tonight, and to complement the story a fancy cast has been assembled, comprised of Van Heflin, Cliff Robertson, Raymond Massey, Peter Lor re Phylfis Thaxter, Nehenv iah Persdff and Charles Branson. Peter Lorre seemed to be the one to talk to simply because he has been away from TV for a year and, when last heard of, he was repdrtedly in very bad shape. Mr. Lorre turned up looking round, frog - eyed and very much alive. "I only had a slight case of sun stroke," he said with a smile, blinking his eyes. "The papers blew it all out of proportion. My ticker." Lorre touched his heart, "is like a horse." The room seemed lighter by several shades after this an nouncement. Peter Lorre is going to be around for a while. "I have a small part in a movie you nvight like," Peter continued, "the smell - o-vision one, 'Scent of Mystery.' I'm keeping up with the times." BROKE UP The desire was to go back in time with Lorre and all the old pictures he made with Humphrey Bogart and Sydney Greenstreet. "Sydney and I made so many pictures together we were becoming Abbott and Costello, so we broke up." said Lorre. . "You know Greenstreet was a comedian before he played The Maltese Falcon,' and in that picture his dialogue consisted of seven pages in a row which he memorized weeks ahead. He insisted in his contract there were to be no deviations in the script. "Now I never looked at a script and Sydney never knew what I was up to. Bogie and I used to arrive at the studio at five minutes to nine, and one morning Sydney was there to meet us. 'How did you like the script? he asked me suspiciously. I don't know,' I said, I haven't looked at it yet.' He blinked, fidgeted and went off. "Twenty minutes later he knocked on my dressing-room door and asked the same question. I rolled my eyes and shrugged, 'rfs all right, I guess. But on page five you could say something else.' Well, in an hour we had changed 15 pages. We did it as a team. Sydney was pleased and did it letter perfect." Recently Peter put his team Ideas to work in a picture he made in Germany. "It's the only anti-Nazi picture made in Germany, a story of times without law." he said. "It won't come over here because it will be simply treat ed as a psychological shocker. Apart from that it was an experiment for me, a way to try my team idea. For instance, when we began I didn't hand one actor a script. We talked about the story. thought about it and we used their own words. It worked. To Peter the script is merely a score for the conductor. He feels that if an actor thinks the part correctly it will always come over the floodlights. "Just memorizing and emoting, for that you get paid," said Peter,, "but that isn't acting." HERO IN EUROPE Lorre has been in Europe for over a year, and he s sort of a hero there. "For the type of parts I play I should be booed, but it's odd, fans just adore me. 1 can t explain it.

Automobile history has been made. A new l class or cars has achieved unprecedented public acceptance. This new class is the compact car class. For 8 years, Rambler was the only compact car. Now every major U. S. car manufacturer offers his version of the compact car. Because this class of cars is so new and because so many conflicting claims are being made, there is understandable puzzlement in the minds of many people as to what these compact cars are. How docs each compare in price, in economy, in performance, room, comfort, features? How docs each measure up by the basic yard-stick of value usefulness to the user? As the originator of the compact caras the first company to heed motorists demands for a more economical, less bulky six-passenger car we know you need facts about compact cars to clarify the confused picture which has arisen because of the many conflicting claims. That is why we present these facts. In our 10 years of building compact cars we found the necessary room cannot be provided in a vehicle less than about 170 inches long. The maximum length is about 200 inches. Beyond that, excess sheet metal adds nothing to comfort-only to parking problems. See chart at left, below. How many- kinds of compact car? Everyone realizes "that there are major differences between big cars in size, price, quality, comfort and performance, but few are aware that differences between compact cars can be equally varied. There arc three distinct compact car fields, based on over-all length. Sec chart below. What is a compact car? Webster defines "compact" as "firmly united . . . solid . . . arranged so as to economize space . . ." A compact car offers big car room and comfort for five or six passengers, without needless bulk. By avoiding excess bulk, a true compact car provides high level economy with performance, maneuverability and driving ease.

New compact cars on sale are small compacts, like Rambler American about 17S to 184 inches long. While some of these small compact cars claim six-passenger room, they lack enough room in important dimensions to ride six big men in comfort. Above this class is the optimum compact car the Rambler Six 189.5 inches long. Optimum because it offers the ideal balance of qualities to provide optimum usefulness to the user. The ideal balance of big car room, with small car handling case . . . fine performance, with top economy . , highest quality, with low price and top resale value . . . modern styling, with easy-to-enter doors. If you want these Rambler advantages with V-8 performance, but slightly less fuel economy, there is the Rambler Rebel V-8. AMBASSADOR V-8. ..Compact Luxury. For those who want luxury car performance and features with the extra luxury of compactness, we offer the Ambassador V-8 by Rambler America's first and best compact luxury car. (Imitations of the Ambassador have recently been announced by our competitors as the first of this type.) Which is lowest priced? Probably the greatest area of confusion is in the wild claims of "lowest price." One small compact car claims to be priced "up to S124 less than other compact cars." The facts, according to manufacturers suggested factory delivered prices, show this: Rambler American is lowest priced of all U. S. cars by at least $ 1 1 7 on 2-door sedans, $ 130 on 4-door sedans, $205 on station wagons. Facts, not claims, show the Rambler American, with room for five big adults, is lowest-priced by far. What about economy? Conflicting claims have now been settled by the first official economy test between the compact cars. A Rambler American Custom Sedan ftith overdrive averaged six-and-tno-thirds more miles per gallon than any other compact car in the recent Pure Oil Economy Trials, at Daytona Beach. The event was under the strict supervision of NASCAR. Compare total economy. Rambler not only saves you money on first cost and gasoline, but also on upkeep and lowest depreciation. Rambler leads in total economy. Rambler owners America's happiest Impartial surveys show Rambler owners are happier than owners of any other make. They report fewer service troubles. More say they will buy the same make again than owners of any other cars. The reason is Rambler's Basic Excellence that pioneered lighter, stronger, safer, rattleproof Single-Unit construction and Deep-Dip rustproofing. Basic Excellence that builds up to a standard, not down to a price. Rambler's superior quality control. The Rambler plant produces more complete cars than any other single U. S. plant. With production in one plant, it is much easier to maintain uniform quality control over every process. Now Rambler production has been expanded again to three full shifts, six days a week. But be assured, we will not sacrifice quality for quantity production. Every Rambler built will be as carefully made and inspected as the Ramblers which have built our reputation in the past.
