MO, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 1* 1955 TWENTY-FIVE Cronkite On TV News: Nobody Can Report It NEW YORK-Jackie Gleason has eaten himself out of a big deal. A concern that makes low calorie foods wanted him to front for a brand-name. All he had to do was stay reasonably slim; He couldn't do it, and, poof, there goes one million bucks. The casting director of "Star Tonight" needed a cat for a com-| ing show. So she called a woman named Lorraine D'Essen, who cameraman and make good T films automatically. "No," says Brown. "Two dif ferent things. Have to have direc tors and cameramen who kno\ TV composition, TV lighting. Tw different things." Another b i g difference—in TV you have to be precise, on time None of this so-what-if-the-picture runs-10-minutes-longer business. "A half-hour TV show," Brown specializes in cats for stage and says, "must be exactly 2,264 fee TV. . {of film—not a foot eitiier way. ''Before we can let you have a! cat," Miss D'Essen said, "we'll! have to see the script first." j What TV news needs, says Wal-i/^ • j\T T 1 ter Cronkite, is a system like the \yClS 1* C W J OD big' wire services have. CBS-TV's ace newsman w a s with the United Press for 11 jears. and he'd like to see the film division of television news operating Eomewhat like UP does. Walter Cronkite SheI'.j/_~" "We. should have bureaus all over," Cronkite says. "And, twice B day, each bureau would send in a list of news film they have available—"warehouse ' f i r e, 75 feet;- man-bites-dog feature, 50 feet'—and the editor in New York would lake all those reports and make up his show, from them. "He'd say to the bureau, 'OK we'll use 25 feet on your warehouse fire at 7:12 p. m., but'we can't use your feature.' Then, at 7:12 p. m. we'd switch to that city and the warehouse fire:film would be sent to the whole network." This is no idle dream. Cronkite thinks it's pretty certain to happen, and fairly soon. Being one of the few TV newsmen with solid -newspaper experience—most of them are radio graduates—Cronkite can see how TV's peculiarities can sometimes hinder adequate news'coverage. "TV makes newsmen into personalities," Cronkite says. "I don't know if that's good or bad. On paydays, I think it's good. But with all newsmen tied up on regular shows and under contract to ,, sponsors, when a big story breaks ^you can't get anybody to cover it—nobody's free. It's not like a newspaper, where you ; cair pull- a man from one spot to another. You can't do that on TV—they're all rehearsing or getting interviewed or something. " Cronkite, as an example, keeps pretty busy. He does the network's ' morning show—which means he has to get up at 4 a. m.—and he does "You Are There" and he does a Sunday night news show and two radio news programs. This 4 a. m. reveille kind of cramps his style. He likes to cover the Broadway first nights, but"But I 'm a pretty weak character," he says, "I generally find myself in Sardi's afterwards. I'm just going to have tu give up first nights." A FEW FAST FACTS: The big! new afternoon giveaway show on CBS-TV will be called "Play For Keeps" . . . Frances Bergen (Mrs. Edgar) will be Jack Benny's guest on Dec. 18 ... Jack Keliy of "Kings Row" is investing all his] earnings in a Hollywood tailor shop . . . Eddie Fisher will do a spectacular "I Hear America Singing," which was planned for Bing Crosby. Bing turned it down . . . Perry Como said no thanks to a bid to make a movie on Marco Polo this summer, because he'd promised to take his family toj Europe. SHOW TIME: "The Heavenlyj Twins" is a contrived attempt at making humor out of a wife shooting her husband. Jean Pierre Aumont is dashing and Faye Emerson's gowns are gasp-inspiring. It isn't enough. "A Hatful of Rain" is a stage- ful of power. An unknown playwright. Michael- V. Gazzo. has written a strong and stormy story j of a drug addict. It is beautifully! acted by a cast headed by Shelley| \Vinters. Ben and An-: thony Franciosa. It adds up to a maenificant theatrical experience. Harry Joe Brown, producer ofj the religious adventure show,; "Crossroads." is a veteran Hol-i lywood figure. But he's unique inj that, he recognizes there's a dif-i ference between movies and TV—} most old-time people figure you' can take a movie director and: A native of Lonaconing and fo" mer Cumberland resident has been promoted in a new organizationa setup at the Summit <N.J.)
