MONDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1952 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, TLUNOtS • Hollywood Luciano Offer* Half a Million To Launder Life Story on Film J|OIXYWOOI>-(NEA) — Exclusively Yours: Deported Gangster Charles "Lucky" Luciano wants to yell "I was framed" and whitewash himself in a film biography which he's willing to finance to the tune of $500,000. But it's a potato too hot for Hollywood to handle and has been turned down by every studio in town. The mobster's latest offer was made to independent producer Phil Tucker, who announced plans for the film and then bowed out. ,» "I thought maybe I could film it my way," Tucker told me, "and tell the truth. But Luciano insisted on showing that he. was framed and this I couldn't do." » * r * The Frank Sinatra-Ava Gardner divorce will provide BIG headline* If Ava Insist on a property settlement and alimony. The headlines will come from Frankie. Incidentally, the reason Sinatra, complete with false nose, played the part of Jimmy Durante on Mr. D' last TV show was a public -reaction to test Frankie impersonating Jimmy In "The Durante Story." It's Frankle's current career goal. * * « * . Charles Farrell and Gale Storm just cut an audition platter of TV's "My Little Margie" as a radio show for TV-less cities . . .

And at one spot she bellows,, "Come on-a-my HORSE." * * * * I wonder if Harry S. will be writing Henny Youngman a caustic letter, too. Henny told Mike Connolly: "Margaret Truman is the only singer I know who can change keys in the middle of a note." * * * • Paramount will follow through in building Gene Barry, such a click in "Atomic City" to stardom. He draws the George Raft role in "Alaskp Seas," the new version of "Spawn of the North." Heavy Robinson Held Line Edward G.

DEMOCRATIC VOTERS ATTENTION ANYONE WISHING TRANSPORTATION TO THE POLLS CALL 3685> 144 Pol. Adv. I want to thank you good Illinois friends I say with all sincerity—with real gratitude. I don 't know how many votes I've made in this campaign, but it seems to me I must have made quite a lot of new friends, besides renewing contacts with many old ones. You 've shown your friendliness in all sorts of ways—turning out to hear me talk, dialing me on your radios and TV sets, and writing me stack* of helpful letters. And I have a feeling that, though you must be pretty weary of campaign oratory by this time, with me you've been mighty nice, polite listeners right along. Perhaps one reason is that I'm not much of a hand at oratory. I'm better when I stick to plain talk about plain facts—and I've followed that line because I think it's what you want. I know you want good government in Illinois—the kind Adlai Stevenson brought to our state after eight years of graft and corruption. Playing on his team, I saw how bad things were before. And that 's where I'd like to take over and follow through—not only to keep up the clean-up but to carry forward plans well Cinder way to make Illinois a better and better state to line in. That's my one ambition. Well, we 'll soon know the answer. Tomorrow night the shouting will dis end the counting begin . . . and we'll see. Meanwhile, just let me thank you again ... all you good Illinois friends.
