VERNON, ILLINOIS 11 llollyw€»od tlHck CarHun R«tiirim to Film Minus the WIso Guy Stljpna HOLLYWOOD (NEA)-Guys ^ and Dolls; Tlicrc's movie gfcasc- ^ paint—and a "this -rolc-is-right-for me smile- on Jack Carson's face for the first lime in two years. Hefty Jack loft Hollywood for TV "because at Warners tlioy always cast mo as a Inud-lalkinR wise guy. It's all right to talk like an idiot once in a while.-hut not in every picture. The people liked it for « while, hut then they got as tired of tne as I did." Now, as Esther Williams' manager in "Dangerous When Wet," ."J Jack 's a high-pressure typo, "but ' this guy is very sincere." Jack reports back to NBC-TV in January and hopes to have a situation c-omcdy show on film. But lliore will be no audience on the sound stage a la Lucille J?all when he emotes for the film cameras. His theory: "Voii can't do a •how In front of 500 people intended for four people in a llvinif room." • * * * *• Barbara Whiting's hailing her role as Esther's 16-yoar-old sister in the same film as "the best part I've over played." &it her title of Hollfwood's Champ TeenAger will go on the auction block as soon as the picture is completed. Now a zippy 21, Barbara's out for slinky-gown roles after eight years of playing bobby-soxers. "I made my movio debut when I was 13 playing a 13-year-old," she said. "But in eight years I've only aged throe years.on the screen. "Let's face it—they can't hold my mind back forever.' Hits The Trail Again It's back to the saddle and the cactus trail for former cowboy star Tom Keene, who tossed his .spurs away in 1941 to try to prove, under the name of Richard Powers, that there was more Sir Laurence Olivier than Tom Mi.x in his makeup. Now Tom's reverting to the name that brought him his greatest fame and is starring in his own telefilm series tagged, "The Tom Keene Show," in which he plays a U. S. Marshal. "I quit westerns because people were beginning to look down on them," he told me. "But my old pictures Kot such a big play on TV th»t I decided to dig up Tom Keene." * * • • June Allyson is still humming her "I-Want-to-Quit" theme song but now there's doubt that she'll * retire as Mrs. Richard Powell when her MGM contract ends in a year. "I still want to quit," perky June told me. "But the scripts keep getting better and better and I'm a little ham." * * • Hollywood's beautiful D a h 1— Ariene that is— is playing her first modern-dress role in four years in "Jamaica Seas" and beaming, "It's a real George part with fire _ and sparkle. I'd just- about given T up—I thought I was destined to be A crinoline girl forever." Thtise zippy lingerie photos of Ariene in three national maga- «ines sent producers grabbing for their telephones. She'd posed he- fon» in bathing suits, she winked, "but not with my hair mussed or my legs showing through filmy gowns. That did it." Ariene says she "hasn't given a thought" to permanent bachelor girl status now that she's shedding J^ hubby Lex Barker with Sl-a-year " alimony. Won't Part With Pat It's been decided. Patrice Wymore stays on the payroll at Warners, with her acting and dancing ''•tT'' BANSHEE CHASES A "DEMON"— Streaking through the clouds, the McDonneU single-jet. swept-wing, carrier-based XF3H-I, designed for the Navy, is chased by a F2H-2 Banshee, which •! making a camera record of flight performance of the experimental plane.

"Now I hope that they'll soon give me a picture of my own to carry," shapely Put confided. "Up to now I haven't had star responsibility and that's the way I wanted It. I couldn't have asked for a hotter opportunity to learn my lessons as a film actress, "I've been dancing since I was five—tent shows, cheap night clubs, the very bottom. Now, after all these years of work, I'm beginning to realize the fruits of my labor." Pat joins Errol "somewhere in Europe" when she completes the film and says of the cost of the career separation; "Our phone bill looked like the national debt.
