(AP) — Mot in the memory of this reporter has there been a year in Hollywood so packed with news events. One big story after another broke during 1958 to keep the news staff hopping. - . Here is how the top 10 news events appear from this vantage point: 1. The Johnny Stompanato stabbing by Cheryl Crane. The death scene in Lana Turner's bedroom was more dramatic than any that could be concocted for a movie. Lana's daughter was cleared in Stompanato's death, but the tragedy is not over, 2. Showman Mike Todd's death in a flaming air crash. It was a stunning blow to his devoted wife Elizabeth Taylor, who was to write an epilogue to the story. Takes Pay Cut Just to Escape Soap Operas NEW YORK W) — Peggy McCr.y, who used to collect $40,000 annually as a star of television daytime serials, is working now in an off-Broadway stage production for $85 a week — deliberately. "While money is a many eplendored thing," she explains, "it is all wrong to make it your goal as an actress. I did soap opera for four years, and, while I was getti%T rich, I wasn't enjoying being an actress. It was nothing more than daily drudgery." Miss McCay got the stage bug two seasons ago in a production cf "Uncle Vanya." She has returned to the same theater now for" a part in "The Failures." Her sole income, however, does Hot come from thespic work. Her late father was president of » large construction company. Since bis death two years ago, she and her mother have been running the business as specialists in building schools. 3. The Liz-Eddie-Debbie triangle. Todd's buddy Eddie Fisher consoled the widow. They even went to Grossinger's, the New York resort where Eddie had wed Debbie Reynolds. Result: rift with Debbie amid large headlines. 4. Tyrone Power's sudden death. 5. The Dominican invasion. The gift-giver of 1958 was not a prince of the East, but a general frora_ the South. Lt. Gen. Rafael "Trujillo Jr., son of the Dominican Republic strong man, made news with his gifts of expensive autos to Kim Novak and Zsa Zsa Gabor. 6. The surprise oscars for Joanne Woodward and Miyoshi Umeki. 7. The death of Harry Cohn. The year took a heavy toll in film pioneers—Jesse Lasky, Al Ldcht- man, Sam Zimbalist, etc. But the most significant loss was Cohn, who had ruled Columbia with en iron hand. His passing marked the close of the big studio era. 8. The rise of the millionaire star. This was no sudden news event, but it was the most significant change within the movie industry. A dozen big stars — Brando, Holden, Wayne, Cooper, Stewart, etc.—seized the balance of power from the big studios and could demand fantastic deals. 9. The death of Richard Skelton. Few events in recent Hollywood times so touched the world as the passing from leukemia of Red Skelton's young son. 10. The Jayne Mansfield-Mickey Hargitay wedding. Jayne did her darndest to make it a glamorous event. Stage Bug Strikes and Scuttles Security NEW YORK'lfl — Ed Kenney has made the big time right on schedule. "You can't really give yourself a timetable," says the young "Flower Drum Song" star, "but when I was 20 I gave myself five years to reach Broadway." Prior to that the 24-year-old Honolulu singer aimed for "something secure — like architecture or dentistry. Then this bug bit me." NfeW YORlTiM - Variety Is 1 the secret of success With an audience, Charted Boyer finds — but not always. < ' " "Usually an audience needs many 'elements from 'many backgrounds in order to react well to « P'ay," says the French star. This, he feels, is why performances bought out by large organ* izatlons for fund « raising purposes are often cold in their response. But in his current role in "Marriage-Go-Round, 1 " Boyer reports benefit audiences have been highly responsive. "Apparently the. only elements needed are men and Women to provide sufficiently opposite reactions," he declares of the comedy which concerns a marital mixup. "Bold Journey' Jan. 5 to Visit Western Tibet The hidden valley of Himls in Western Tibet,. said to be the locale that inspired James Hilton's classic "Lost Horizon," : is visited in "Search for Shangri-La," on ABC-TV's true-adventure series "Bold Journey," Jan. 5. Explorer - adventurer Col Nlcol Smith narrates the film of his journey by caravan into Tibet to film people and places rarely seen by Western men. Highlighting Smith's Unusual adventure story will be the first films of "The Child Skooshok," a 4-year-old boy who is spiritual leader of Western Tibet. The Skoo- shok's monastery is located in the Himis valley. Other highlights will include scenes of the devil dancers of the Himis; Buddhist worship at a 17- fopt-high gold Buddha, believed to be over 1,000 years old; a dangerous .caravan journey over passes of 18,000-foot elevation in the Himalayas, on narrow trails that skirt drops of up to 4,000 feet and dramatic views of the scenic splendor of the vast Karakorura range of the Himalayas. Cafe Pianist Has Busy Life of Work, Play The life of a cafe pianist, particularly one with Hugh Shannon's reputation, is not a routine thing. Nowadays, you'll find Shannon playing and sing- Ing nightly at the Delmonico's Cafe Lounge. You'll also find bis wife, Betty, at her table in the place all night, too. From 11 p. m. '"until who knows" they're „ .' both there. Hugh Shanno. Jt , 8 m , party every night," says Hugh. "When I'm not working, we give parties— so this is cheaper." He calls her Kitsy and she calls him Wootsy. And between them, they know everybody in the society whirl. He's been at it a long time, playing in such exotic locales, as Paris, Capri, the Virgin Islands and Nassau, and he's about the tops in his profession. If you want to hear Shannon, society's favorite, you can pick UP his album called "Disgustingly Rich" on Atlantic, or another one on Harlequin. BACK BEFORE CAMERAS Fred Beck, actor and columnist, made his last appearance before a camera 34 years ago when he played a British Tommy in "The Better Ole."
