FRIDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1952 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS Hollywood Vow Chaplin Foresaw Trouble; Leaving U. S. .'Saddened' Him fJOLLYWOOD— (NEA) — Hollywood and Grapevine: Hollywood biggies who attended that farewell party for Charlie Chaplin vow that he smelled trouble ahead in >eaving the U. S. Chaplin addressed the gathering on his lack of patriotism for this or any Dthor country and added: "Home Is where I hang my hat. But I must say that this time I am overcome with sadness at leaving the place where I have hung my hat for so long." Strikes us that Chaplin hung himself instead of his hat this time. + • * y Although MGM is suing Mario Lanza for wrecking "The Student Prince"—which has been shelved •—his contract has not been dissolved. Mario can still report to the studio and demand work plus pay. Meanwhile, the word's leaked out that it was Betty Lanza's doctors who ordered Mario to leave the house. At any rate, Mrs. Lanza went through a medical crisis that was kept secret from even the closest friends of the couple. » * * * To Marilyn Monroe—who else? —goes the Number One spot in Motion Picture Herald's 12th annual S"tars of Tomorrow poll of America 's motion picture theater owners. Debbie Reynolds, Marge and Gower Champion and Mitzi Gaynor were runners-up. * # * # Two temporary bachelors were exchanging their woes at Bob Daltons. "My wife is spending the season in Las Vegas," one said. "With me," said the other, "it's slightly different. My wife is spending in Las Vegas this season." * * * * , Cold Snap It'<= eyebrow-lifting, but newlyweds Michael Wilding and Liz Taylor are scrapping like old married folks. In public yet. * * * * Ginger Rogers insisted on changing the ending of her new Paramount starrer, "Forever Female." from a tragic to an everybody's-happy climax. And the moan around the studio is that Ginger is cheating herself out of an Oscar nomination by the switch. It's the story of an aging stage actress who insists on playing girlish roles and finally has to step aside for a younger emoter. * * • * Pat Wymore's father Is planning a luxury western motel not far from Fiynn's Inn (Errol's projeet) at booming Apple Valley. More proof that the Flynn- Wymore marriage is solid. * * * * > It was a wrangle with her relatives that made ailing Hatt .ie McDaniel decide to enter the Motion Picture Country Home. * * * * Betty Hutton's recovery, following two throat operations, is by no means permanent. Doctors have told her she'll need periodic surgery. * • « * For a fellow who visited the studio only twice during the four years he owned it, Howard Hughes did all right. His RKO profit, after selling out to a syndicate headed by Ralph Stolkin, was S2 million. And he still owns Jane Russell's contract. • • * • Sick of It All The James Masons, the Stewart Grangers and the Ronald Coje- mans are clam-ups on the subject of he latest blast at Hollywood stars by British ctors' Equity, but David N ! ven, a British subject, doesn't mince words in yelling "For shame!" Boiling over charges from London that such Yankee Doodle Dandies as Alan Ladd, Joel McCrea, Rock Hudson and Jeffrey Hunter are taking movie jobs away from British stars, Niven told me"I have no rime at nil for British E' uity. I suffer terribly because of this jealousy of American stars. The statements and actions of British Equity are unforgivable. If it were a case of 500 American chorus girls replacing 500 British chorus girls, it would be different. "But the truth is that there would be very little film production in London at all without the American companies that go over. For every three or four Hollywood names, 400 British actors are used as extras. Yet American actors are pilloried. I'm sick of these attacks." The day the* price of haircuts was tipped to $1.50 in Hollywood, Paul Henreid reported for work on a barber shop set of the 725 A. D. vintage in "Siren of Bagdad" at Columbia. A sign reading, "Hhaircuts and Blood-letting" -ught his eye. "Ah," said Henreid, "barbers haven't changed a bit." * * * If Tony Curtis learns all of Houdini's tricks for "Houdini," he'll be a sensation at Hollywood parties. Houdini could sit in a chair and tie knots with his toes. Italy Lifts Ban On Services of Church of Christ By Attsclattd Fr«M ROME—The Italian government today lifted its ban against operations of the American-sponsored Church of Christ in Italy. The U. S. Embassy, announcing the decision, said it followed discussions between the Embassy and the Italian government. The denomination's .22 churches and one orphanage will be permitted to operate as usual during the period while their application for permanent permission is being acted upon by the government. Elbridge Dubrow of Los Angeles, Calif., minister consular of the Embassy, passed on formal notification of the decision to Cline R. Paden, head of the American-led church here. Last Sunday Italian police permitted the Church of Christ to hold its first public services in three weeks. The Church of Christ, the Assembly of God and Pentecostal church have protested to the U.
