IF STAR DIES OR WIND WRECKS Film Makers Insured Against Catastrophe By BOB THOMAS AP Movie-TV Writer PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (AP) — A star dies in the middle of a picture. A big wind blows down an expensive movie set. A star's pregnancy causes a $400,000 delay in shooting. What happens to cost-pinched producers when such catastrophe occur? , In most cases, they are covered by insurance. If they can prove damage, they are compensated swiftly and in full. How Insurance Works Here in this desert dreamland, I did some research on this matter. My informant was Rowland V, Lee, who is substituting the American desert for the Biblical lands of his movie epic. "The Big Fisherman." Shooting here for two weeks, Lee was caught with his tents down. A big blow came up and ruined ex»pensive tents and other props to the tune of 40,000. The schedule had to be juggled to Sim elsewhere while the sets were being rebuilt. Pay b Prompt "I haven't read the small type •I the insurance contract," said the salty veteran producer, '-'so I don't know if they won't pay if the wind was coming from the south, etc. But if our claim is proper, the company will pay promptly. They don't want people to think that they haggle over such things." Insurance is a big item on every movie's budget. Each company is insured against damage to sets, Injury to workers or bystanders, etc. Also, the producer is insured against loss of services of important members of the cast. Observers believe that Edward Small will get back the money lost on "Solomon and Sheba" because of Tyrone Power's death. Whether Marilyn Monroe's absences from "Some Like It Hot" will be paid for is another matter. Much depends on whether or not she is pregnant. Everyone believes so, but she won't confirm it. Actors must take physical exams before starting pictures in order to qualify for the insurance. Some performers are considered poor risks, not because of their physical condition but because of temperament. One singing star, for example, has not done a picture in years because no producer can get insurance on her.

Video Hasn't Cured Colds or Solved U nem ploy merit By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP)—Panning television is « popular indoor aport today—among critics at the typewriter as well as critics on the hearth. There is no'doubt that television has been a disappointment in several ways. It hasn't cured the common cold. It hasn't solved the problem of unemployment. It is even questionable whether it has made most people drink more beer or brush their teeth oftener. Honest Assessment These facts must be faced fairly in any honest assessment of tele* vision's role in creating the better way of life and a more cultured race; Alas, it is all too true. Perfection has not come out of that one-eyed Pandora's box in the living room. On the other hand, in its own imperfect way television has done considerable good. And while in our house every member of the family has considered throwing out our set, at one time or another, we never have quite got around to doing it. Critics of television complain against it not so much for what it is, as for what they feel it could be. Ask Positive Stand They feel it should take more Movie Calenda AT THE STERLING (Tonight-Wednesday) "Mardi Gras" with Pat Boone, Tommy Sands, Gary Crosby, Sheree North. (Starts Thursday) "Man of the West" with Gary Cooper, Julie London, Lee J. Cobb. AT THE PARAMOUNT (Sunday-Tuesday) "Me And the Colonel" with Danny Kaye. (Wedaesday-Tbonday) "Dunkirk" with John Mills.

AT THE STATE (Sunday-Saturday) "No Time for Sergeants" with Andy Griffith, Myron McCormick, Nick Adams. positive stands on vital issues, and be a more powerful cultural force. Frankly, w« can't fo along with them on this. We feel that in our house there already are too many powerful cultural forces operating, and certainly all the powerful stands on vital issues we need. We are not certain at all that we want to convert our living room-either into a permanent lecture hall or a public forum. There are many evenings in which we prefer to be entertained, rather than be big-brothered by some pundit who is sure he knows the only true answer to the future. Problem of "Surgery" Nor do we care too often to have our young daughter reply, when a neighbor kid knocks on the door while the TV set is showing a brain operation, "Come back later, Joe. We're In surgery." As entertainment goes, however. we find TV's present bill-of-farti pretty satisfying. By and large, there's something for everybody. My wife likes a good drama. X like Ute children's programs, our daughter likes the gory Westerns, and our cat cries real tears over "Lassie." We no longer have to trudge through the winter snow to see a second-rate movie. Vila! DiscassloH Those vital discussion programs that serious-minded people find so absorbing have a cultural impact in our home, too. All I have to do to cure my Sunday afternoon insomnia is to tune in on some such topic as, "Whither the Hydrogen Bomb," or "Fee Versus Freud," and stretch out on the couch, Morpheus and peace arrive moments later, and I rise refreshed. As that fellow in the cereal com* mercial says, "When you've got a good thing, let it alone." Let's not improve it to death.
