VULGAR LOVEMAKING AUSTIN (Mtnn.) HERALD, SATURDAY, JANUARY 10, 1959-5 Just to Watch/Says Borzage By JAMES BACON AP Motion Picture .Writer HOLLYWOOD Ml,— The man who made one of the screen's all- time great love stories calls modern , movie lovemaking vulgar. "It's embarrassing to watch," Bays Director frank Borzage, who Made "Seventh Heaven" with Charles Parrel! and Janet Gaynor In 1927, a picture that won the first, Oscars ever awarded an actress and a director. "Lovemaking on the screen used to, be tender and sweet," says Borzage. "It was left to the audience's imagination what was taking place. "Gum Chewing" "Now nothing is left to the imagination. Kissing is more gum chewing now, than lovemaking." Bofzag'e says lovemaking hasn't changed much through the centuries—except on the screen. "Most boys and girls"'are still stiy arid sweet about it like they always were. It should never be coarse nor sordid." Borzage didn't bring it up, but a remake of one o£ his old pictures serves > as-a perfect example. Quite a Change Frank made the first "Farewell to Arms" with Gary Cooper and Helen Hayes. It was an artistic and commercial success. . The recent one with Rock Budson and Jennifer Jones was not. In the original "Farewell," censors cut out a scene from the JANET GAYNOK script in which Cooper seduces Miss Hayes while the Italian troops march oft in the distance. Borzage convinced the censors that he could portray the scene in good taste. "I did it all with their eyes," he recalls. "The censors passed the filmed scene. The audience knew what was happening but was not offended." Illicit Angles In the recent remake, the illicit angles of the Hemingway story were stressed. One scene showed Miss Jones going through the pains of childbirth. The scene was so realistic that several persons, including actress Audrey Hepburn, fainted at- the premier. Yet the picture was far from being the commercial success its predecessor was. Borzage, inactive much of the last few years, is making one of HUDSON JENNIFER the biggest pictures of his career now. It's the lata. Loyd C. Poug- las' last novel "The Big Fisherman," a story of St. Peter. SILENCE IS GOLDEN Paul Winchell, star of "The Paul Winchell Show," smilingly tells all who ask him the secret of his long and successful career in show business: "I'm one of the few men who managed to hit pay dirt by learning to 'keep my mouth shut 1 ." ICE FOLLIES STARS — Richard Dwyer and Lesley Goodwin are two in the list of many stars who will sparkle in the 19'59 edition of the Ice Follies at Minneapolis. Ice Fol lies May Have Record Before Minneapolis Opening Ice Follies fans in this area will see what critics throughout the nation are calling "the,.best show the Shipstads and Johnson ever produced" when the 1959 production gets to the Minneapolis Arena April 8-26 on their current record- smashing rave-notice tour. Anticipating a Minneapolis attendance mark for the Follies based on its reception in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Denver, Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia and others, Minneapolis Arena manager Lyle Wright stated the mail order sale of tickets here will begin immediately. The follies opened with a new attendance mark at San Francisco. Twenty-seven straight performances were sold out in Los Angeles where Oscar Johnson estimated 50,000 customers were turned away because the Pan Pacific Auditorium couldn't seat them. The attendance In Chicago Stadium was 33 per cent ahead of last year, a new all-time Chicago mark. The Chicago crowds total- led 226,786 for 20 performances compared to 152,917 last year. In Detroit another record was set when 104,369 turned out for 15 performances. "This year's Ice Follies is like a dream, the best yet and. I've seen them all,"' wrote Charles Dawn in the Chicago American. "The Ice Follies has color, pace and talent. It has laughs and it has pretty girls. It has an eye- popping abundance of creative, artistic, stunning sets and costumes," stated Glenna Syse of the Chicago Sun Times. Robert Cromie of the Chicago Tribune wrote, "The capacity 18,000 crowd went O-o-o-o-o-o — there was tremendous variety and plentiful supply of talent." "Something for everybody," added Albert Jedlicka of the Chicago Daily News.
