HERALD, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 29, COMIC PAIR — Phil Ford and Mimi Mines will be featured in the coming Sullivan show that was filmed in Alaska. Phil Ford, Mimi Mines on Dec. 7 Sullivan Show Fans who have soured on the Ed Sullivan Show may want to tune in once more Dec. 7. It will be his "Alaska Show," but most important will be appearance .of Phil Ford and Mimi Hines. Phil and Mimi are the comedy team that created such a rumpus when they showed on one of Jack Paar's shows. Their rise was detailed in SHOWCASE several weeks ago. They are sticking with the manager who "picked them up" when they appeared a long time back on the Garry Moore show. He has kept them in good bookings since. While Muni is looking ahead eagerly to their chance with Sullivan a week from tomorrow, her real big ambition is to appear in a stage show on Broadway. And— she wants it to be a~«bow written by her husband, Phil. Phil is a gag writer. Besides writing and singing, he plays piano, clarinet, flute, sax, trumpet and drums. Muni wants him to put together and direct a big musical comedy. By CttARUlS MERCEtt NEW YORK (AP)-Puppeta, BO popular la the early years of tele* vision, we much In evidence on the hoflie screen this season. toffiotfow, when "Art Carney Meets Peter and the Wolf" in an hour special on ASC-TV (6 p.m., EST>, the Baird puppets will make up the complete cast escep^ for Carney, ferry Como has been employing Kulda, Praia and Ollie on his NBC-TV program. Pat Boone It presenting Shari Lewis •fid her puppets on his ABC-TV show, Mmlng Pregrint Miss Lewis, who conducts a popular morning local program on NBC-TV featuring a variety o! puppet characters, was saying the other day that "Puppets don't eat much/' She meant, of course, that they offer a good show for a relatively small budget. An interesting puppet, she explained, "is something unlikely existing hi a human way." Furthermore, she theorizes that we're living in an age beguiled by the miniature. Smaller cars and smaller dogs, for example, are becoming increasingly popular. So isn't it possible that puppets, those miniature humans,, are in a trend of popular interest? iHteresting Pohit Miss Lewis pointed out another interesting thing about a puppet: He (or she) can get away with saying and doing things on television that a human cannot. It's banal, for instance, when a man swoons upon being introduced to a pretty girl, but a puppet can swoon and nearly everybody is amused. In her puppet shows Miss Lewis says she never strives for gags, "but if it's true humor we do it. There's never any pie or seltzer in the face. I try to bring vigor but not violence to a show. The conflicts are of emotion rather than physical." An Unknown to Join 4 Top Stars tor Film Version of 'On the Beach' HOLLYWOOD (AP) — Producer Stanley Kramer has passed up Hollywood's big names to team an unknown with four top stars in "On the Beach." She is Donna Anderson, a pretty, 19-year-old dancer whose success story is an unusual one. On. Jan. 1, she will fly to Australia to join Gregory Peck, Ava Gardner, Fred Astaire and Tony Perkins in Kramer's production of the Nevil Shute novel. Admits She's Scared How does she feel about all this? ••Scared," she admitted. And well she might be, stepping in with such fast company. But Kramer has faith in her. In fact, his faith has extended for the four years in which he has kept her under personal contract. Here's bow it all happened; Donna was a 15-year-old dance student at one of Hollywood's ballet schools. She took part hi a recital to which Kramer and his wife were invited by choreographer Eugene Loring. It's reported the producer was impressed with Donna. Mrs. Kramer Impressed "I think Mrs. Kramer was impressed," Donna corrected. At any rate, she was invited with her mother and grandmother to visit the studio, where Kramer advised dramatic lessons for Donna. When it appeared that family couldn't afford such expense, he decided to put the young girl under exclusive contract. It was the first time he bad ever done so, though he sparked the careers of Kirk Douglas, Grace Kelly, and Marlon Brando. Then followed four years of intensive training, with dramatic coaches as well as dance teachers. "The break came when I tested for a role in a TV show at Desilu Studios," she said. "I didn't get the part, but Mr. Kramer saw the test and I guess he liked it. t never heard it from him but people around the studio started telling me that I was going to do the role of Tony Perkins* wife in 'On the Beach.' "I wouldn't believe it, even when I was called in for wardrobe fittings. Then Mr. Kramer told me." Now Hollywood may have a new star in this brown-haired beauty who admits being scared.
