He came back to Hoi- j lywood and made a movie, using his cruise movies for exotic backgrounds. He called it ! "Trade Winds" and sent it on its way with a prayer because that's about all he had left. If it went over, Garnett would be "set." If not, Garnett would be very unhappy. "Trade Winds" received, from coast to coast, one of the critics' The idea seems fraught with danger, because professional magicians get very, very sore when their tricks are exposed. A professional magician, Paul Le- Paul, is technical adviser, however, and the film is "exposing" only three tricks, one of which (the one that lets Niven "create" Loretta in a huge glass retort by mixing chemicals) was devised at the studio and is in no magician's repertory. Another is taken from a published work of magic—a trick in which Niven puts Loretta on a table carried by four costumed Arabs, waves a shawl around while she "disappears" inside the empty vastnesses of the No. 4 Arab who is a dummy. For this scene Miss Young, playing Niven's wife and assistant, is garbed in oomphatic style—sheer pantaloons and .a girdle of golden sequins. The talking parakeets adorning the set 'best described her as she walked on for the first time. "Whew-e-e!" he exclaimed, in a 'boy-oh-boy tone of voice. (The bird was coached, Loretta thinks, by prankish Niven or one of the About New York (By GEORGE TUCKER) NEW YORK — Impossible events sometimes come to pass along Broadway. Every girl who thinks she can dance or sing or act often dreams of walking cold into the office of a producer or bandleader and boldly asking for a job—and getting it. Four years ago a girl who thought she could sing walked into a room where Louis Prima was rehearing a swing band, and asked for a chance to show him how well she would fit into his organization. Prima asked her to sing several numbers. "You have a nice voice." he told her, "but you lack style." Without charging her anything Louis 'began teaching her. After awhile she would drop into his place in 52nd street and sing a number or two each evening, with the band. She got the "feel" of swing band crooning. This was a lot of fun, and it was good practice. One night while she was "practicing 1 ' a film scout called her over and offered her a tiny part in one of Bing Crosby's pictures. She came out of this "bit" with a name of her own, and you'll recognize it as Martha Raye. # * # A few nights ago a quite pretty, demure little girl whose age is 17 and whose name is Patricia Miller, left her mushroom sandwich half eaten and advanced to the bandstand. This was Hickory House, and Louis Prima (he does get around) was again on hand. She wondered, please, if Mr. Prima would let her sing a song, just one, just one little song. Most band leaders are pestered unmercifully with .people in public places, and ordinarily prima would have said he was sorry but not now. In tms instance he surprised himself by saying, okay. Do not leap to conclusions, fcne is not a strange glamorous unknown who leaped from obscurity to the big time, sffi hasn't done anything yet But she sang that night "it's like PENTWATCR THEATRE ersville Hardware Co., Michigan Swarthout, Public Service Co. c, . . ™ Full memberships- D,r and Society—The Women's society j Mr.s.

At any rate, it's the story about magic and magicians, that Wanger has ibeen aching to do. Tliis is Loretta's first film since she quit 20th Century- Fox to make her way as a freelance doing two pictures a year —instead of eight. This might seem, on the surface, to have been a poorly considered move- but the girl has a business head, never doubt it. For instance: There's a sequence in the film of "montage" (those <l«4ck-changing shots- denoting .time's passage) showing Loretta in a dozen different costumes. "The business office," smiled Loretta happily, "is going to faint." Loretta is selecting them from her own wardrobe, renting them to the studio at standard prices. STAUNTON, Va.

But in this window is a machine gun. a trench helmet, a hand grenade, and a bayonet. I can't figure it out. The fight in the Stork Club the other night between Sidney Solomon, who used to run the Central P.ark Casino, and George White, producer of the "Scandals," adds two more names to the long list of notables who have settled their differences with fists in public places. Everybody remembers the fight between Max Eastman, who wrote "Enjoyment of Laughter," and Ernest Hemingway, who is famous lor "Death hi" the Afternoon" in the office of their publisher a couple of years back. Rudy Vallee has been in half a dozen squabbles; Sinclair Lewis, the author, exchanged blows with a fellow author at a banquet in New York. Sherman Billlngsley, owner of the Stork, was so angered that both contestants, and Indeed all people who ever have indulged in public brawls have been forbidden his door.
