Behind the Scenes in Hollywood ... . by Alice West It's 30 pictures aireafly for.10- year-old Sherry Jackson and a spread on her beauty secrets :in a fsn magazine. When someone said to her mother, Maurita Jackson PitUnan, that her children, Gary and Curtis, as well as Sherry, should be in the movies, she djd something about it. She hied her family off to Hollywood from Wendell, Idaho, and it was not Io,ng before a sightseeing bus driver spotted Sherry ·with her mother and said: "That cricket-bright- child should be in pictures." He gave her the address of an agent who specializes in children -- and that was ·it -- *H three of them »re in pictures. "I didn't think I was -going to get in pictures," Sherry said, her big brown eyes opened wide, "Because when I took the test for the 'Snake Pit" with Olivia De Havilland, I was coming down with the chickenpox and I didn't do my part very well." But Sherry was given the next part for which she tested and it was "You're My Everything" with Pan Dailey and Anne Baxter. Older Than She Is Sherry, although she is a' child in every way, talks very much older than she is, and it doesn't take Jong to recognize she is an exceptionally intelligent person. "I love this picture," she said, "because John Wayne is in it. I think he's wonderful!" Her voice took a high little crack as she emoted. "He's so much fun and makes me laugh," Sherry at the same time was ' all excited about her part in "The Miracle of Fatima," although she was making "Alma Mater," at Warner's. " "That was a good picture," sie said. "I' had to cry a lot in that one. It wasn't hard for me though. It was sad, so I wanted to cry." It's not hard to understand w3iy little Sherry has gone-so far in picture:. She has a. keen sensitivity of other people's feelings and is a born diplomat. ' When she learned I was from'Utah, she went all out to praise the country. Likes Utah "Oh, Utah Is beautiful!' 1 s h e »ald, "Those red mountains and everything." She had made the picture, "The Lion and the Horse," with Steven Cochran, and it was filmed around Zion's Park and through the country. "The people were so nice and the animals were wonderful." She also raved about Stev«. "He's ft grand man!" she said, "And I get to take c»re of his boat part of the time because my brother owns a fourth shara in it and he lets me. He's supposed to keep it painted and clean and I have fun helping him." When asked how she managed to gat her lessons and act, she said. "I' don't find it hard to study and work. I just get in a room by myself and concentrate. I . never have any trouble with my lines." Her mother added that she knows the lines of all the others in the cast also. Want* 22 Children "I want a nice husband and 22 children, when I grow up," she wid. "Of course I'm sure I couldnt have 22, but I will have as many as I can and adopt the others. I want my husband to have the work all done when I get home from the studio and have the dinner all ready, too." Sherry is accompanied at the itudio either by her mother or by a teacher who- tutors her at least three hours daily. Between pictures she attends grade school in Los Angeles and is in the Fifth-B, a half-grade ahead of her age. She takes music, singing and dancing lessons, and h « r teachers she has the making of a prima ballerina. -SKATING- TODAY MATINIIt 2 PM t» 4 PM TONIOHTi 7:30 PM to 10 PM "Rule! t» Purlin" Bcrthan* Roller Rink 'Utah Delegates I Make History With Broadcasts For the first time in history all the congressional delegates from one state have arranged to have weekly meetings.
