The shots were from Elvis Presley's latest picture "Jailhouse Rock" which opens Thursday at the Olympia, Beach and Gables. There were several teenagers in the audience and the sight of Presley jiggling and wiggling and squirming failed to stir in them the slightest frenzy. You have no idea what a relief it is ta sH among a crowd and not bo tormented by a few silly kids shrieking and giggling while this freak singer is rocking and rolling. . We approach Thursday with dread. Twice we have reviewed Presley's pictures and twice we have been unable la hear him because of the squeals from noisy pack of teen-agers, usually sitting in the front rows. AT TIMES LIKE THESE the grownup is apt to throw up his arms in horror and wonder what the younger generation is coming to. Despair becomes deeper when the mail is received after Presley movie. Say one unfavorable thing about this fellow and the youngsters send in a flood of letters. Most of them call us a "square" or a "jerk", but some of the notes are absolutely astounding. Wo have in our files a Mtor written in childish scrawl and the language is something from the sower. It is peppered with fowr-latter words and other profanities and is unsigned. The Presley cult is a difficult one to deal with and we are prone to judge all teen-agers by these few. Then we meet a group of young men and women, eat with them, talk with them, try to answer their questions and life becomes clean again and we realize that the average teener is a pretty good boy or girL THIS WAS IMPRESSED upon ns sharply over last weekend when we spoke to a convention of the Florida Scholastic Press Association at North Miami High SchooL More than 100 young men and women were in the gathering. No tight blue jeans, leather jackets or sideburns for the boys; no sloppily dressed, impudent girls. They came from all parts of South Florida and were the kind of youngsters you would be glad to have in your home visiting your own children. - Many of them were critics for their high school newspapers; others were studying journalism and planning a career in newspaper work. All of them were movie fans. They listened intently and politely, and when tho time came fa pop questions at vt their queries were intelligent, clear and they meant business. They wanted to know about standards for appraising a show, tho flaws and the strong points to look for and how to present those opinions to tho reading public in interesting form. Not one of thorn mentioned tho name of Presley. Whether they liked him or disliked him didn't matter. They wore concerned with more important things. " We left the session with a brighter outlook. Hereafter when we hear a noisy minority screaming at the sight of Elvis in a movie, we'll try to ignore them, and remember those we saw at North Miami Hi ah. Thev are the ones who are typical of Youne America. ... - - -w m v H A Real Dreamboat m When a fellow goes to school with the sons and daughters of movie actors and later becomes a caddy for the film people themselves, he's got an inside track in crashing the gates of Hollywood. Robert Wagner, the subject of today's Amusements Magazine cover, started out like that and in a few years he had riseit from bit parts to more prominent roles and soon he became the dreamboat of girls who go to the movies. WAGNER, WHO PLAYS the leading male role in "Stopover Tokyo," coming to the Carib, Miami and Miracle Nov. 12, attended school and had dates with Gloria Lloyd, daughter of Harold Lloyd; Molinda Markey, Joan Bennett's daughter, and Micheto Farmer, whose mother is Gloria Swanson. He got a job at Bel Aire Country Club so he could meet movie actors, and poured out the story of his ambitions to men like Alan Ladd, Fred Astairo, Randolph Scott, Brian Donlevy and Clark Gable. Donlevy gave him $5 and suggested he buy a book on drama but Wagner couldn't learn t act merely by studying the lessons. His first appearance was in "The Happy Years" and be had a one line bit. He wasn't seen on the screen because be was hidden behind a baseball catcher's mask. MIAMI SUNDAY NEWS, November 3, 1957 EDITOR ASSOCIATE EDITOR Herb Kelly Bill Waters
