I Sheila Bond, has a good whodunit plot, but that's all. The author Dick Shawn is about as serious ™|ned the plot with some classi- as a comedian can be. (Also about fally corny dialogue, and the cast as talented a young comic as is « as emotional as a wet tea bag. around today.) He's all wrapped) up in stuff like how to control one's fears. ? Dick Shawn '. Claire Bloom ""Controlling fear is the most important thing for anyone to learn," he says. "Especially a performer. Everyone is naturally afraid, but the successful performer is" the one who's broken out of his shell and conquered fear. ' : "There are guys who can hit a ball as far as Mickey Mantle : (Shawn was once a pitcher, under contract to the Chicago White Sox) but they tighten up — fear — and their back muscles tighten. A comedian tightens up. too, but the good ones learn to get over it. .'.'That's what I'm working at now. I still tighten up. If I'm working a nightclub and there's noise of talking or rattling dishes. I can feel my face and mouth tighten. Then I-just go through the motions of my act, I just do it to get it over with. I know that's bad, and I'm working to overcome it. >"Same thing if you see somebody in the audience get up and \j r alk out. It could be he's .sick or has to make a phone call. Or it could be he doesn't like you. How do you know? So you just have to learn to ignore it. It's all inner fears, inner fears." And Dick Shawn shuddered and left. Claire Bloom,, the talented young British actress who made her TV debut opposite Jose Ferrer in NBC-TV's "Cyrano de Bergerac," turns out to be one of those persons who - answers questions with questions. She looks up from the newspaper she's reading just long enough to turn on her best Moha Lisa smile and listen attentively while [you ask her something. For instance — "You were a star in England at 15. How did the demands of stardom strike you at that age?" There is a thoughtful moment and then she'll say, "What are the demands of stardom?" And back to the newspaper; • Getting positive facts from this sort of conversation; is' somewhat ;difficult :and" probably not' worth the effort. Nevertheless, you may be : slightly-interested to! learn the following facts about the 24-year- old star: : • ..' ' , ' ' "I 'was in New York between the ages of'9 and 12, as'a war evacuee. I'm much more impressed now—the city is so lively, so happy. London is a very melancholy city. That doesn't mean I'm happier in New York—maybe I like being melancholy." " 'Cyrano' was my first TV here. I did it because I wanted to work with Ferrer and, besides, it fitted in with my schedule. I'm going to make a record for Caedmon here. I'll read portions of 'Jane Eyre.' It's my favorite book — almost." "I don't like interviews. I'm too lazy. They always ask you to think of something funny that's happened. We have them in England, too—fan magazines and all that rubbish." iir Finance WASHINGTON '(INS)—The U.
