Dial PA-2-4 600 for a WANT AD Taker EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND. MD.. THURSDAY, DECEMBER 8, 1955 FIVE Paris To U. S. M. Chevalier Would Bring French Stars By CHARLES MERCER NEW YORK MB—When you meet Maurice Chevalier you are at once impressed by his candor. He tells you, first of all, that he's 67 and never felt younger. Then, with some subtlety, he explains that he's not just a guy working the sunny side of the street for a buck. Finally he describes his desire to do something he feels he could do very well: bring to American television, on a niore or less regular basis, the best entertainment that Paris offers. In the light of his live TV debut on NBC-TV this week it appear: that Chevalier has a good idea. Performing a feat that numerous entertainers .fail to accomplish, he established communication and accord with, his audience. It was true, to be .sure,., that he was al his best when he confined himself to the nostalgic world of Maurice Chevalier.. That world, by the way, began in 1920 and died.in 1939. Its capital was Paris. Mt \vas a time when gaiety was not suspected of being mere irresponsibility. . If Chevalier could supply a res. ervoir of talent such as Marce Marceau, the French pantomimis! who appeared with him • on the Ma> Liebman TV show, he'd be assured of success. Well, Chevalier says that reser voir of talent exists, and I, for one, will take his .word for it Speaking strictly, as an American tourist, I've been greatly enter lained and fascinated by Parisian dance and song and pantomimi during two visits there in the pas three years. I'd like to see mori of it on television—and I think you would. 27 N.

What is wrong with the old one? Nothing that Hollywood can see. An unknown a year ago. he 'gar- icred much notice ana an Academy nomination as Marlon Brando's brother in "On the Wrter- Vont." Since then he has played Jud in "Oklahoma!" plus top roles n "The Big Knife," "The Court Martial of Billy Mitchell" and 'Jubal Troop." Now he's vying with Humphrey Bogart in "The Harder They Fall." He could keep busy indefinitely with the other offers he's had, earning well ov;r $100,000 a year. So isn't he happy? • No," said the brooding Steiger (rhymes with tiger). "1 don't think I have fully realized my potentiall ties, "as it is now, I can earn a comfortable living as a character actor. "But I think I can do more than that. I'd like to do the kind of leads that Spencer Tracy did when he was a' younger man. • "I believe . I could do it if dropped a few pounds. The weight is wonderful for character roles, especially some of the older- men I've played (he's 30). I went up as high as 225 pounds for Jud. Now I'm down to 200 and I've got another 20 to'go. "Of course, I'll never be a Tony Curtis, but .. I think I can look something like the Tracy or Jean Gabin type of leading man. Thai anyway." With six'pictures behind him, he plans to rest on his laurels for a spell and enjoy Europe. He's an mlependent cuss, as Hecht-Lancaster found out.
