MAN NOBODY KNOWS- Tony Randall Rising Star JtOtLYWOOD — That young whimsical fellow who plays so many different characters is becoming a regular Yankee Doodle Alec Guinness. The bigger Tony Randall's career becomes, fewer are the people who recognize him when he's just Tony Randall. Like this actress at Chasen's Tony was telling me about, his eyes twinkling. Her name is Patricia Owen and Tony worked with her in "No Down Payment." "I had my arms around her for days in a dancing sequence," Tony said. "But we hadn't seen one another for months when I saw her at Chasen's and rushed up and said, 'Hello.' " Pat gave him a trout look and Tony smiled: "Don't you remember me?" DOG DAYS "I'm sorry, but I'm afraid I don't," replied Pat. walking away. So now Patricia Owen knows the name of the fellow who said "Hello" to her at Chasen's-Tony Randall, who just completed his fourth starring movie, "The Mating Game." The Tony Randall who laughed about Pat not recognizing him: "I guess I have no face—no personality." Always different, that's Tony, who admits he'll probably never be known as a straight leading man, but always as a character actor, "because," he told me, "I just can't play any role straight. I have to make him a character." You remember, of course, , Tony's roles — the screaming neurotic in "Oh, Men, OJj, Worn- Film Producers Need to Save Tax Money ent"; the fellow bound never io succeed In "Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?"; the sick-sick- sick lad In "No Down Payment." In his just completed fourth movie, "The Mating Game," opposite Debbie Reynolds, Tony is a U. S. income tax investigator "who loves the tax code with such fervor," he says, "that he quotes from It poetry — like a clergyman quoting from the Bible." The TV show "Mr. Peepers" helped zoom Tony's career, which was launched as a kid mimic and developed in New York drama classes. And in connection with the TV show, which reached its most fabulous success in 1952, Tony tells a hilarious story about himself. He was in a men's room in New York when a woman who had mistaken the signs on the door walked in and surprised him there. Tony, embarrassed speechless, gave her a wild look. She returned his look with one just as wild. But she wasn't left speechless. "You're on television.." She gnspcd before .limiting ,n quick exit. Sugar Cane Burning Slated on TV Show Jack Smith, host of ABC-TV's "You Asked for It," sets fire to an Hawaiian sugar cane field on the program Sunday, 6-0:30 p.m. The cane burning, requested by a viewer, is the first step In the process of sugar-planting which was filmed recently on the island of Oahu by Smith and a "You Asked for It" camera crew.
