After 3 Wives, 278 Filmed Chapters, Jack Webb Happier and Working Less By ERSK1NE JOHNSON HOLLYWOOD — And so — after •even years, three wires and 278 filmed chapters ot "Dragnet" — Jack Webb lived happily ever after.

Friday's third marriage to beauty contest winner Jackie Society Band Records Have Big Demand NEW YORK (NBA) — "Everybody's hopping on the band wagon," says Pen Cutler, and the band wagon he means is one with real bands. It's the current craze of dance band albums, cut generally by society band leaders and shock-full of danceable tunes, generally in medley form. Cutler says Lester- Lanin originated the idea and now every society band leader is in the swim. Cutler, one of the biggest society band leaders, is the latest to try his baton at recording, with "Debutante Party," on MGM. "These albums are selling," says the handsome Cutler, "because people want to dance. Bands went out of style because they overar- ranged — they were arranging mostly for themselves, it seems, and people lost interest. You couldn't dance to them. The proof of this is that the bands that are still popular — Welk, Lombardo, Kaye — are the ones with simple, danceable styles. "I've had a band since '32, and 1 toyed with one even before then. 'And, basically, I'm playing the same kind of music now 1 was then. It's a little leas ricky-tick now, that's all. And, of course, the repertoire has changed; Bat it's simple, danceable arrangements and you can always hear the melody." Loughery brought him off • stage happiness. But when be says he isn't overworked anymore he doesn't mean golf three afternoons a week. Plenty To Do The current Webb M. O.

Friday while overplaying it as star, producer, director, writer and cutter now can afford the side of the TV and movie business he preferred all along — producing and directing, with only occasional acting. The pilot of "Pete Kelley's Blues" — based on his movie which was based on his radio show — will be sold, Jack hopes, because of the continued film and TV spotlight on the Roaring Twenties.

There will be no courtroom scenes to the show and the stories will be based on fact but 80 to 90 per cent fiction. I say it will 'smack* of 'Dragnet' only because it is being made by us.

Compton is a Southern drawl- in' six-footer who likes to say he's from "a Tennessee tcwn (Lynchburg) of 172 people and 90 dogs. The people are real friendly, but the dogs aren't." Southern Ridge Runner "Compton," says Jack, "is a real Southern ridge runner. He's really a Western hero type with a Herb Shriner type of natural humor." "A Western hero In a Brooks Bros, suit?" I wondered: "That's Just abort right," Jack smiled. Webb, a bandy fellow with the facts, says bachelor Compton is a character. His family has operated the famed Jack Daniels distillery in the bourbon soaked hills of Tennessee for three generations; be owns a 40-acre California alfalfa ranch and a million honey bees on a lemon ranch near Santa Barbara, Calif. His only acting, to date, has been a small role to "The Ryan Girl," a Broadway play to 1949, some TV, and a series of Army Signal Corps films to 1952. Davy Hits Broadway Coonskin Cap and All NEW YORK (A — Davy Crockett, TV's hero two seasons ago, is heading for the New York stage. "Sunrise to My Pocket," a play that has been eyed by many producers since it was written to 1938, has been scheduled for off- Broadway production by Lester Lockwood. Edwin Justus Mayer, author of the drama about the frontier adventurer, was represented earlier this season with a highly praised production ol "Children of Darkness." ai Guy WUUsrms. It bai happened before „ } ,. ay (Tattan) Weissmuller; Jean tor, Christian) HershoH; Mickey (Andy Hardy) Rodney; Fess (Davy Crockett) Parker, and many others. ;r •' . There was no foreboding handwriting on fee wall for Guy to see, but, well, an actor- never know* what tomorrow win bring. Besides, Walt Disney had passed the word down. Otttdoor Movie Slated Re's planning to star Guy to a big outdoor movie, with a Calif* ornia gold rush background, late next spring. Guy wanted to' be sure'Disney wouldn't have to bill him as "Zorro." .', "" ,'./ ,After all, no one has been writing the name of Coy WhV lianas with the fervor of those making the mark of Zorro — a slashing Z — which In fomnd everywhere from school desk carvings to cement sidewalks. Furthermore, Guy had good reason to come out from behind the mark of Zorro. He had made his mark to Hollywood as the dashing hero, proving be is just as adept at the acting game, as he is at the sword, flashing, swashbuckling game. That Williams smile has woo a big feminine audience as well aa kiddie fans. Seventy Zorro films will be com. pleted to a few weeks with young Guy "a little breathless but not beat ," be says.

'Says Guy: "It's like working la a movie yon never finish. TOM eaa't eon- elude anything as aa actor." It's the reason be has his fingers crossed about a chance to appear as another character to a Disney movie. Not Easy Work The Disney production system of filming four half-hour Zorro shows at a time — shooting all the action and dialog needed on a set that appears to more than one show before moving to another set — is, Williams admits, "a little coo- fusing at times. Not remembering the dialog, but remembering what led up to it. Sometimes I'm real blank and have to go back and read scenes we've already filmed."
