MONDAY, .TUNE 22, 1953 BLYTHEVILLE (AKK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Surprise Everybody! Marie Wilson. Has Legs By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (AP) — Surprise, everyone! Marie j! Wilson has legs, too. •i;: What's more, movie goers j!; will be seeing more of her Ji gams than her more noted at.' tributes — possibly because s of the new dimensions in film - screens. ' Nothing is safe in this 3-D revolution. Marie is in a class with • Jane Russell and Dagmar, as far as the feminine form is concerned. Now she may be known as the .cover-up girl. wfef. "'rank Tashlin, who is directing rf Marie in "Marry Me Again," shakes his head over the whole business. "Marie comes in with lovely dresses," he told me, "but we have to keep adding material on the top. That kind of outfit just won't pass the censors these days. But there's nothing wrong: with legs, and Marie has good ones. We have several scenes in which she shows her legs —in a hootchy-kootch outfit, hath- Ing suit and other things." Censors Grateful This strictness of decolletage may be due to the fact that the pitcure is being shot in the widei: screen technique. This method r takes in a lot more territory and \\t gives the audience a closer look than did the old style of filming. Censors will no doubt be grateful that "Marry Me Again" is not being filmed in three dimensions as well. It was originally slated as a "depthie," but plans were dropped at the last minute. Whether Miss Wilson's form had anything to do with the matter is not known. How- tfsver, she is grateful that the film receives the wide-screen treatment. "Imagine me In a flat picture!" she s^ys. Marie is getting to be a slightly frustrated girl. For seven years or more, she appeared in Ken Murray's blackouts on the stage, doing a tongue-in-cheek strip tease night- ji ly. Her stand in the show revived |! her career and led to "My Friend t Irma" and other successes. Now I' she finds herself restricted in ; films and TV too. j: No Profiles I "When I do a TV show, I have ( to face the camera all the time," ;, she reported. "If I have a profile , ;: shot, they just die! And the • dresses have to be very conserva- l live. But I think that was largely v because of our sponsor. Next sea/ son we'll have a new one and I • don't think things will be so strict. 7 "Here's the way I figure: They're ': buying one girl and selling her to .; the public as something else." Marie isn't letting the grass •j grow beneath her feet now that i Irma is off TV and radio for the . summer. As she finishes ; her picture, she starts rehearsals tjlar her night club act, which will ' open at the Sands in Las Vegas Aug. 12. She has also signed a four-picture deal with RKO which assures that sne will be busy for the next four summers.
