(AP) Samuel Goldwyn says he is taking the biggest gamble of his 46-year career as a film producer—and won't profit a penny if he wins. He declared he has dropped seven million dollars of his own money into the making of "Porgy and Bess." Except for shares which go to his wife and son, the entire profits wil> be given to his Goldwyn Foundation for charitable works. Something Different "That is, if there are any profits," he added. "I'm not even sure of that. I have done what nobody else has tried before—put a real American opera on the screen. I don't know if the public will go for an opera. Nobody knows. "I'll have to attract a lot of people to make a success of it. With a seven-milUon-dollar investment, I will have to make 15 millions in order to break even. I don't know if I can do it. "But I'll tell you one thing: I will not disguise 'Porgy and Bess.' The ads will state plainly that it is an opera. I don't think it does any good to lie to the public about what a thing is. If they don't like it, they won't come, no matter what you call it." Final Retakes Made The 74-year-old movie maker had just finished final retakes for the picture. "The rights alone cost a minimum of $650,000, with more to be paid as a royalty," he said. "Jt took months of negotiations to nail down the contract. I had Oliver Smith here for seven months to design the sets, and Irene Sharaff for the same time doing the costumes. Every costume was created from scratch. Lots of Expense "I had an orchestra and SO-voice chorus working for four months on the prerecordings. Most of the songs ae dubbed, so that meant practically a duplicate cast. "The filming required four months, both on location in Stockton and here at the studio. The Todd-AO process is enormously expensive. And now that the filra- SAM GOLDWYN Ing is over, the scoring begins. Andre Previn will take at least 10 weeks to write the score, another four to record it." Mickey Mouse Club Plans 3 Yule Programs Walt Disney's "Mickey Mouse Club" will observe the holiday season by presenting an international view of Christmas next Monday, Wednesday and Friday, as follows: Monday — Christmas, U. S. A.: Scenes of typical Christmas celebrations; Christmas in Holland: How the Dutch welcome a waterborne St. Nicholas. Doddism: "The Perfect Gift." Mousekartoon: "Broken Toys" — Toys in a junk pile rehabilitate themselves and march to an orphanage. Wednesday — Christmas in Switzerland: Yuletide in the Alps. Mousekartoon: "The Night Before Christmas" — Santa arrives in traditional fashion. Friday — Ta'.ent Roundup: Romayne and Steele, ice skating duo. Newsreel: Teen - age Canadian Boy in Summer Naval Training; Livestock in Chicago. Doddism: "Stick-to-it-ivity." Mousekartoon: "Self Control" — Donald Duck loses his temper over a woodpecker. Wyatt iarp in England for Shows HOLLYWOOD -Wyatt Earp is headed for a new kind of west — London's fawncy West find — for three weeks of personal appearances at the Odeort Theater, But you can take Hugh O'Brian's laughing word that he won't be mistaken for Bat Masterson while in the shadow of Big Ben. "No one is going to trap me into wearing a derby and carrying in a rolled -up umbrella," O'Brian grinned while I watched him pack five guns and 800 pounds of ammunition (blanks) for his Dec. 26 opening. "I Just hope," he added, "they don't mistake me for * revolution." The TV western hero will make « bundle on the British two-a-day as the star of a variety show in which he will show the young school tie lads his fast draw and also mix it up with six English stuntmen in a recreated saloon brawl. Future stanzas of "Wyatt Earp" will have Hugh moving — lock, stock and gun barrel — to Tomstone, Ariz., for his TV heroics. But Sheriff Matt Dillon's reign as the No. 1 rated "Gunsmoke" isn't the reason Earp is deserting Dodge City. The reason is a change of scenery for the show and, as O'Brian says: "It's historically accurate. Earp lived in Tomstone after leaving Dodge."

(AP Photof ax) .. , . • Too Much Success Scares Zimbalist Jr. By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (AP) — Efrem Zimbalist Jr. is a TV star in a dillema: He doesn't want a flop, but he doesn't want a hit either. Zimbalist is the suave private eye who matches wits with Hollywood's underworld on 77 Sunset Strip for ABC Friday nights. The son of the famed musician is also making a name for himself in Religious Note on Christmas Season Lie Ahead on Video Austin area residents will have plenty of opportunity to get the religious emphasis on Christmas through television programing this week. At 4 p.m. Sunday the Mormon Tabernacle Choir will perform on Channel 3. At 9 p.m. Christmas Eve Bishop Fulton J. Sheen will give a Christmas address on Channel 6 and at 10:30 p.m. the Episcopal service from the National Cathedral, Washington D. C. will be heard and seen on Ch. 3. A special arrangement of the traditional "Silent Night" will be sung by Patti Page on Channel 6 Monday, with guest stars Jimmie Rodgers, recording star, and 11- year-old Augie Rios, now appear- FOR 3 DECADES Ing in the Broadway musical "Jamaica" (9 - 9:30 Austin Time) A choral group of 12 youngsters, each one of a different nationality, will sing a aeries of well-known Christmas selections, including 'The Twelve Days of Christmas." At 11 p.m. Christmas eve the midnight mass from St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City will be televised on Ch. 10 and at 11:30 p.m. Ch. 3 will present a half- hour telecast of a pageant at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Catholic Church, Chicago. Thursday at 8 a.m. Thursday Christmas Day services at the Episcopal Cathedral will be telecast by Ch. 10. theatrical films; he scored M Jean Simmons' sympathetic friend In "Home Before Dark." Therein lies his dilemma. "I think it's good for me to b* doing a TV series now that film production is so low," said the Warner Brothers player. "If 1 didn't have this, I'd be off salary. "Naturally, I hope the series is a success. But the thought of my being in it for five to seven yean frightens me. I think I'd shoot myself first." It looks as though he may be In for trouble. Because "77" has been doing very well in the ratings these Friday nights, and the sponsors seem content. Zimbalist could be in for a long run. When I saw him between scenes, he was wolfing down a sandwich, which comprised his lunch. "We've been working steadily since the season began," he explained, "and we're still not ahead. We couldn't get any backlog. Sponsor money was tight this year, so we didn't know if we were sold until the last moment. And Warners wasn't willing to shoot more than the pilot until the sale was made." The studio pulled the wily stunt of making the first show 90 minutes long. Ttius, if it didn't sell for TV, it could be sold to theaters. TV claimed it first, and the show won much attention for the novel opener. McCarey Retains Comedy Touch By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP)-It takes a real laugh master to retain the true comedy touch for three decades. One who has - never lost his skill at tickling the national funnybone is Hollywood director Leo M,c- Carey. "I'm accused of being the laziest ' man in the'busi- j ness," said Leo, who has a weath- erbeaten face and dark snapping eyes. "In over 30 years I've only made about 25 pictures. Some men in that time have turned out 800, or even 300." But McCarey has won three Oscars and been nominated for two more. And his roster of films in- elude such landmarks as "The Awful Truth," "Ruggles of Red Gap," "My Favorite Wife," "Indiscreet," "Going My Way," and "The Bells of St. Mary's." Leo over the years has been one of Hollywood's top money earners. He has a great gift for friendship, and his friends have ranged from Jack Dempsey and the late Jack Barrymore to a host of colorful unknowns, in practically every walk of life. Unspoken Creed An associate said this is McCarey's unspoken creed: "Never go up the hill alone." Son of a famous West Coast boxing promoter, Leo became a lawyer and still brags he retired from active practice with a perfect record: He never won a case. He started in pictures as a script clerk, directed a number of the Charlie Chase and Laurel and Hardy comedies. They gave him a love for pantomime that has never left him, and be still likes to write with his camera as much as his typewriter. Partly Visual "Everything I do is partly visual," he remarked. "I love pantomime. I revel in it. Words are necessary, but the movies are still a very visual art. I like wherever possible to let action tell the story." Whether he takes a writing credit or not, Leo almost always takes a firm hand in shaping the final script. "Nobody should tell a story who is not a story teller," he said. "The writer is the story teller, and the future of movies is to have more directors who are also writers. Finds it Easier "I find it easier to direct characters I have created rather than those created by someone else. You know them better as people." A stout defender of Hollywood, McCarey says its biggest need now—and always has been—fresh ideas. "The truth j>," he added, "that every time you have a novel idea, it is hard to find people willing to put their money into it — because it doesn't remind them of something else that has been successful."
