V ,. lir Af S l'l\ I fmi ,«H«W Part JMULD /our Comolofe Sttwday ti Will Contain T 4OVIE, RADIO & TV HKOGRAM LiSTING TV & Radio Listings For Next Week SATURDAY, DEC. 6, ) 958 , <OV; IN for TV By CHARLES MERCER NEW YORK <AP) -. Someday , .somebody is going to tell the.trutli , .about the state of wigs among television performers. , But if'you think you're going to let the whole truth here, you're mistaken. Suffice it to say that you seldom see a baWheaded performer, although plenty of people have worried themselves bald in . this hair-tearing business. Oa the other hand, men are most .candid about their beards. In fact, men who raise them are mighty proud of 'em. One of the most distinguished performers in the.medium: bearded Peter Usti- nov. ^ Star of 'Omnibus' Ustinov is shaving his long beard in order to star hi a drama he wrote himself, "The Empty Chair," Sunday on Omnibus (NBC-WV), £» the drama, con- eerned with the theme of power and set in the French'Revolution, Ustinov plays the revolutionary leader Georges Danton. Ustinov, who will make any sac* rlfice for art, originally grew the beard to star hi bis own highly successful play, "Romanoff and Julle&" 3 ta which he now is appearing on the road, What impelled nun to write a teleplay requiring a clean chin at the same time he was appearing in a play requiring him to be bearded is a question he cannot answer. From Road Tour A bearded Ustinov will fly in from his road tour on Saturday to undergo. ordeal by razor. On Sunday night a clean-shaven Usti- nov will fly back and wear a false beard for the remainder of his road tour. Last year, when he scored a great success playing the life of Or. Samuel Johnson on Omnibus, Ustinov disguised his beard with a $1,000 plastic mask — a worse ordeal, he says, than shaving a beard. In "The Empty Chair," Usti- nov's wife, French actress Suzanne Cloutier, plays the role of Danton's pregnant wife. Mrs. Ustinov is five monhs pregnant, as was Madame Danton at the time of the drama. Ustinov insists orfhistorical authenticity in all his work; he did not create the role of Madame Danton with Mrs, Us- tinov in mind. Hour-Long Tribute to Jews Planned "The American Jew: A Tribute to Freedom," special report on the position of Jews in America today, will be presented on Channel 4 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Sunday. The hour-long program will attempt to survey the vast field of 'Jewish contributions to the main stream of America's developing -culture, TO do this, the special feature will include Jewish statesmen, scientists, and entertainers whose fame is world-wide. Among distinguished guests who will appear on the program will be Pore Shary; actress Susan Strasherg; opera singer Richard Tucker, cartoonist Al Capp, for* mer Sen. Hubert B. Lehman and • number of others, SHE GITS START One-Time Miss Utah on 'Naked City', and 'Play Hunch' Host ' Suzanne Storrs, a Onetime Miss Utah, is a girl who's deteraune&to have an interesting life, do extraordinary »mnjjfrS» v * *~ ' At the moment, she's a Hostess on "Play Your Hunch" and olayS Detective James Halloran's wife on "The Naked City. ' That may not be as interesting and extraordinary as she'd like, but it's a start. "Someday,? 1 she says, "I want to marry, settle down, have children; 1 * But only with an interesting man. I have a brother back home in - Salt Lake whose only ambition is to be manager of a J. C; Penney store somewhere. I simply can't understand that." ."••'.. Way to Chance Suzanne, a beauty of the All- American girl- type, entered the Miss Utah, contest as a means of getting to New York. "I always,wanted to come to New Y«rk," she gays. "Never Hollywood or Chicago or a n y place else, just New York. I even turned down Hollywood offers to come here." At Atlantic City, she won a $1,000 scholarship as "the most'* talented non-finalist;'' which -is a title she enjoys playing with. She used the money to come to New York» ; She stayed at a women's hotel, sent all her bills to the Miss America office. i Money Went Fast "I ate all my meals in the hotel," she says, "and I even bought my lingerie In the h o t e 1 store. The • $1,000 was gone in three months, but, by then. I bad a job." Now she's on her way to the interesting and-extraordinary life she craves. On "Play Your Hunch," she gets to escort skunks and ocelots on camera. How extraordinary can you get? STARTING PEC. 13 ON CBS Concerns for Young People With Bernstein to Resume Children and adult music lovers should be pleased to note that Leonard Bernstein is returning with the New York Philharmonic Young People's concert Dec. 13 on CBS-TV. Bernstein the past two seasons has fascinated youngsters and adults alike by explaining musical concepts with brisk analogies and pertinent demonstrations without condescending to the "this is grandfather tuba and uncle bass" style LEONARD BERNSTEIN so commonly used on children's programs, 1 The dynamic Bernstein will appear on all four of the once a month Saturday morning programs with the first concert on the theme of "What Makes Music Symphonic." He wiU conduct the orchestra in excerpts from musical works to Amos 'n' Andy to Survive Cut Remember way back when the whole family hovered around the radio to enjoy "Amos V Andy?" CBS has been considering drop, ping the show because it is com* paratively expensive,* but requests from enough individual stations have come in to make the net* work change its mind, but the Saturday broadcast will be eliminated, making it a five-day affair. Several other programs are being cancelled in a network re* vision to give affiliated stations more time for local programs, starting Jan. 5. In the shift, the Robert Q.
