His name la Chris Pollet, and he's spent nine of his M years in AL MOZNINO — President Eisenhower causes him trouble. Shadow Artist Needs Work as Scientist'on the Side' When Ed SuDlrao did his thrill- tog show of talent frun Israel, one of the best acU was that of "shad* ow artist" Albert Almoznino. He's now showing his fabulous ability to make his own shadow tell stories on a tour with some of his fellow countrymen that's taking them all around the U.S. He's also) changed his suune — to Al Mania*, which every- tady called him aayway. He's originally from Megador, an old waited city la Morocco. "Outside the city," he says, In his slow but accurate English, "there were rock formations of curious shape. And, Inside, the streets were, so narrow it was usually dark and the shadows would play. Thafs how I got interested in shadows, I Imagine. That and a touring French troupe I saw as a boy who did a shadow act, among other things." Moznlno was, he says, a show* •ft as a boy. Once, "when I was five or Ore-thirty — I mean 5%," he hnng from the roof of Us house by oae hand to attract attention. He was successful. From such a background, show business is almost Inevitable. Israel being a small nation, It can't support too many full-time show biz people, so Moznlno works as a laboratory assistant in the Weizmann Institute. On his off time, be perfects his act—and he can tell stories with shadows, do little vignettes, even make caricatures of people like Abraham Lincoln. "I've tried to do President Eisenhower," he says, "but I can't get him. His profile is not very distinctive." K«y * fie Now Mft, everybody with ]8 uf- ficlent money and enthusiasm can go to Central Africa these days --and he fte«d not rough it in some of7 th*fc$bf4h6-way places to which Thomas and his crew penetrated. In the past year, for example, Pellet has guided 37'Amer- leans about with,gun or camera from his main lodge at Kasenyi. Pollet, like everyone who has traveled back tf .beyond with Thomas, has high praise for Thomas's good sportsmanship and indifference to discomfort. But what about other Americans Pol* let has guided? Are they different to any ways'from Europeans? Americans Shyer In general," Pollet said the other day, "Americans are shyer than Europeans. They have absolutely no fear of wild animals or rough country or any of those things that American movies about,Africa always are emphasizing. "The chief fear they seem to have is of getting sick. They're afraid of catching malaria or dysentery or some rare disease. They never seem to think of being afraid of lions or hippos, but they—some of them-can be quite frightened by snakes or spiders. "They're extremely finicky about what they eat-a problem I've personally solved by training two excellent chefs to feed my guests. And I never have known an American who didn't want ice —lots of ice, all of the time. I never understood it until I came to this country. It's amazing. Even when you're served a glass of water, there's Ice in it." Thomas's High Adventure In Central Africa will explore the fascinating, legendary Mountains of the Moon — the Kuwenzori— which rise nearly 17,000 feet on the eastern border of the Congo and where many Africans believe strange spirits dwell. Among other sequences in the program will be one film of the secret Anyota ceremony fa which boys are indoctrinated into manhood. David Niven Resents Life, Not Length of It-but Its Brevity By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK;(AP)~jDavid Niven resents life. Not the' weary length of it, but the brevity of it. "I want to live another 150 years," he said. "I want to go on and on, doing what I'm doing. X can't visualize myself retiring and sitting in a little house by the sea* shore watching seagulls. "I resent deeply the fact I cant read all the books I want to. know ell the people, see all the places." Debonair in Real Life As debonair In real life M he Is on the screen, Niven believes to meeting the problems of living with * mixture of granite and quicksilver. The handsome Scottish-born ae> tor, after a harum-scarum, fan- pecunious youth, settled down to become one of Hollywood's most durable players of light comedy roles. After 64 years of service io the British army during World War H (he emerged a colonel), he quickly resumed his star status. He was one of the first Hollywood figures to venture into television, despite a film mogul's stem warn, ing: "If you do, you'll never work to my studio again." Long Time No-See That's all right, 1 * Niven as- eared him. "] haven't worked to DAVID NIVEN it for the last 19 years anyway." Since then he has been busier than, ever. As vice president of the Four Star Playhouse, he has helped supervise the production of nearly 1,200 TV dramas. He makes a dosen or so TV appear, ances a year, acts in two or three films. la Us latest, "Separate Tables." he portrays a lonely, seedy, scandal-haunted major, a role his fans may find somewhat surprising. Looks for Different "I try to look for soiaetlaug difr ferent every time," Niven said. "My theory is that if you are lucky enough to make a good living acting, it's better to keep working than to sit around a year waiting for the perfect script. "You learn something every day you work." War left a stamp on his thinking, as it does on all who spend much time in it. This is his personal philospby: "I think we all eventually evolve our own faith. I am convinced that heaven and hell are right where we are now—on this earth. Life's a Steeplechaser "Life is an enormous Grand National Steeplechase. We are given certain hurdles to get over, and certain opportunities. And if you don't spot the opportunities, you miss them. "It really doesn't matter who is the winner; it's getting around the course that counts. "Life is like having a garden full of lovely flowers. If we don't look after them, a horrible little wind comes up and blows a seed of unhappiness into the garden, and some foul weed springs up and ruins the whole thing." Niven right now seems like a man up to his chin in rhododendron*. •_ Television 1 Monday, December f , -4 W8 Mtttt »rotr«ft H hi Col* e.-0J «.«*.
