(APPhotofax) RE-ENTER: BELLY-LAUGH Hollywood to Rely on Comedies to Meet TV Competition in '59 By ERSKINE JOHNSON HOLLYWOOD — Custard ides haven't yet drag-raced any flying saucers in Southern California sides, but Hollywood is relaunching all the other old Mack Sennett slapstick comedy tricks in a big movie comedy boom — the first since the celluloid capital slipped on a banana peel labeled TV and fell flat on its own face. A dozen of the 1058 . 59 season's biggest films are designed to bring back that almost forgotten event — the big belly laugh. Pages Turned Back Such goings on haven't been seen on movie sound stages since the days when Marx Brothers chased blondes, Oliver Hardy tweaked Stan Laurel's nose, Greer Garson sat down on a chocolate eclair and Bob Hope and Bing Crosby greased the slpper on Dorothy Lamour's sarong.

Or if Burl Ives and Frank Sinatra get together as the Laurel and Hardy of the '60s. Genolne C*medy There's Rosalind Russell, for instance, in "Auntie Mame." If you remember Roc In "Mourning Becomes Electra" (which she's trying to forget) and in "Sister Kenny," well — you just won't believe it. She's Jerry Lewis, Red Skelton and Jack Benny merged into a doll as hilarious as an old Keystone Komedy chase. Yes sir, HsOywsod Is shock.

Movies should be like amusement parks. People should go to them to have fun. There's nothing but fun in our picture." Brown ant] Lemmoi He was talking about "Some Like It Hot," in which he has Joe K. Brown making romantic passes at Jack Lemmon as Jack and Tony Curtis impersonate Marilyn Monroe's girl friends while being chased by gangsters. The comedy trend, says Billy, "Is what the doctor neglected to order for Hollywood movies and the 'laugh pill' prescription is long overdue." Billy isn't alone In Us thoughts. If you like to laugh, here's the rest of the menu Hollywood hopes to pack movie theaters with in coming months: "Tuuel •! Love "The Tunnel of Love" — Doris Day and Richard Widmark put tbe spotlight on sex in the suburbs — and if some theaters aren't raided by police I'll be surprised. "The Shaggy Dog" — Teen-age boy discovers he can turn him- self into a dog to tbe horror of bis .parents, Fred MacMurray and Jean Hagen. "The Jane From Maine" — Doris Day and her pet lobster get mixed up with railroad red tape. As4 - Same Other "Don't Give Up the Ship": Jerry Lewis misplaces a U. 8. destroyer. "The Mating Game" — Debbie Reynolds and Paul Douglas at wa? with the U. S. income tax department. Debbie needed a good laugh and this is U. "Alias Jesse James" — Bob Hope, the tenderfoot at war with the West. "Tbe Perfect Furlough": Tony Curtis, Janet Leigh and Lind» Cristal. The Pentagon may be blushing in public but I know it is laughing behind closed doors. 3 fHW*^| list I Site loves n* both very much. Nothing would please her more than to see us together again." George insists that his quarrel, if any, was and la with some of Lee's managers and advisors. Be says: "The feud gossip began after one of, Brother Lee's TV broadcasts. Someone hi the audience asked him where I was, and he answered with a calypso song, 'he's out making a fortune selling pizza pies.' , Makes No Fortune "Nothing could be further from the truth than that. It's true I'm hi the frozen foods business on the side — most show people do have a sideline — but I'm certainly not making a fortune out of It. "I don't believe such a vicious statement had its birth hi Brother Lee. I think'it was a plant by someone close to him who wants to discredit me, and lead the public to believe I'm no longer in show business. "My split with Lee came because I could not agree with his management and legal ad- risers. If I had stayed, 1 wonld have turned Into nothing bttt a gimmick — like the candelabra.* Since going on his own, George .has played TV guest shots with Red Skelton, Perry Como, Jack Paar and George Gobel, and in top supper clubs. He's also made a record album. Unlike his days with Lee, George now talks during his act. He reports having several offers for a network TV show. As much as George wants to make a success .of his own show business career, he remains one of his brother's biggest fans. With obvious sincerity be says: "I think Brother Lee is not only one of the finest pianists, but is also one of the greatest showmen hi the business."
