This message, scrawled on a Christmas card by a fan, is one reaction accorded TV star Richard Boone. He gets all kinds, thanks to the professional lives he leads. For two seasons, he starred as the dedicated doctor on the ambitious "Medic" show. Now he's finishing up his second year of films in the popular "Have Gun, Will Travel" series. Plus which he has done some distinguished work in movies and live TV. Next Feb. 12, he plans to open on Broadway as Abe Lincoln in a play about the Lin- Estonian Dancers on Polka-Go-Round on Monday Nights The gay "Polka-Go-Round" revue with the smiling, singing emcee Bob Lewandowski and his guests, the Estonian Dancers of Indianapolis, anticipate a happy New Year on Channel 6 Monday 7-7:30 p.m. Spotlighted will be vocalists Carolyn DeZurik, singing "Chime Bells," and Georgia Drake, offering "Wunderbar." Regulars on the program, presented 'live* in an outdoor village cafe setting in the studios of Wbkb, Chicago, include the singing, playing Polka Round- ers headed by accordionist Lou Prohut; the professional Chains dancers, directed by Felix Sad- osH, and the Singing Waiters, vocal harmony and comedy group led by Tom Fouls — also known as "Stubby and the Bucaneerfi." coin-Douglas debates, "The Rivalry." .:' " ' "Right now, there is real confusion among the fans because 'Medic' is getting a big play to syndication," Boone remarked. "In face, it is getting better ratings in nearly all locations than it did when it was on NBC. Some folks think I should give up the gun and go back to the scalpel." No chance. "Medic," which solved a lot of ills, couldn't cure itself. It suffered a final demise. Boone has three years to go under contract with "Have Gun." Judging from the popularity of the show, he'll go the full term. That doesn't upset him. "I've done two years as Paladin and I haven't tired of him yet," he said. "He's a delightful character to play, and the very nature of the show allows us to move around so we don't get stale. This year we did a fourth of the shows on location — at Lone Pine, Big Bear, Squaw Valley in California and hi Gallup, N.M. "Next year, we plan to go to Hawaii and Cuernevaca. We're also hoping to go to Europe." Dog's Life Proves to Be Life of Riley COLUMBIA, S. C. Iff — It's far from a dog's life for the canines belonging to Mr. and Mrs. Walter T.

The producers Were trying harder than ever in 1958, and they had some success. The general quality of films was good, but still not good enough to assure a happy future for the movie business. Our annual assessment of the year's product uncovers no standout film, as in the last two years with "Around the World hi 80 Days" and "The Bridge on the River Kwai." Several films won hearty approval from critics and audiences, but few had that magic hats-hvthe-air quality. Some Appraisals Here's how Hollywood's work appeared to this movie goer: Best actress: Susan Hayward, "I Want to Live"; Ingrid Bergman, "Inn of the Sixth Happiness"; Elizabeth Taylor, "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof; Jean Simmons, "Home Before Dark"; Rosalind Russell, "Auntie Mame." Best actor: Spencer Tracy, "The Last Hurrah"; Paul New man, "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof'; David Niven, "Separate Tables"; Marlon Brando, "The Young Lions"; "Indiscreet." Best supporting actor: Dean Martin, "Some Came Running"; Maurice Chevalier, "Gigi"; Lee J. Cobb, "The Brothers Karama- zov"; Ray Walston, "Damn Yankees"; Trevor Howard, "The Key." Other Best supporting actress: "Shirley MacLaine, "Some Came running"; Hermlone Gingojd, "Gigi"; Maureen Stapleton, "Lonely* hearts"; Cara Williams, "The Defiant Ones"; Carolyn Jones, "Marjorle Morningstar." Bloodiest picture: "The Vikings." Underrated film: "Cowboy." Overrated film: "Kings Go Forth." Worst title; "The Flead Who Walked the West." Disappointments: The Geisha and the Barbarian," "The Quiet American," "Bonjour Tristesse." Worst picture: "Too Much, Too Soon. *)' *i*tti Hunt* fca on Alcoa CHARLES VAN DOREN 5:30 (Ch. 3) — "Woodrow Wfl- son; the Fight for Peace" on 20th Century.
