TV Star Talks Out of Turn Lands Hollywood Contract Looking at Hollywood By Hcdda Hoppvr HOLLYWOOD, Aug. 5 Dean Miller, from Cincinnati, O., won the all-time daily double without ever placing a bet Here's the fantastic story. On a train en route to Los Angeles, he struck up a conversation with a man sitting beside him in the club car. "You from Chicago?" said Dean.. "No," said the gentleman, I live in Los Angeles. Where do you come from? " " I'm a TV star in Cincinnati," said Dean. " I'm going out to look over TV on the coast, Television's the greatest thing in entertainment It's killed pictures, you know. Movies are dead as a dodo bird." " O? " said the gentleman. "Don't you ever see movies? " "I saw a few good ones this year' King Solomon's Mines,' Caruso,' ' Showboat But pictures are dead. Only thing is television." . . . "That's interest-ins," said the man, " but don't let my companion hear you say that He's in the picture business." "O?" said Dean. "What does he do? " "Why don't you ask him? " The fresh kid did. The man replied, "I'm Louis K. Sidney, and you've been talking to Dore' Schary, head of M-G-M. You might be interested to know that the three pictures you saw were made at our studio." ?So what?" said Dean. "So," said Mr. Schary, "Why not come to the studio tomorrow and make a test? " Dean leaped out of his seat like he'd been shot from a gun, and said, " You really mean it? What time? " . . . He made the test They signed him. Now he's back in Cincinnati canceling his show and telling everybody how great movies are. JETAKE: Gary Cooper goes into St John's hospital tomorrow for a hernia operation. He was operated on once before, but before the Job healed, he climbed a mountain in " Fot Whom the Bell Tolls." Then the thing never did heal properly. . . . Diana Lynn played in " Voice of the Turtle ! at La Jolla, and liked the climate so much that she stayed on. You'll be surprised at the gentleman's game. ... David Selznick doesn't have to worry about his two sons. They'll get a million each when they reach the age of 21 from their horse racing Grandpappy, Louis B. Mayer. T3USINESS FIRST: Dick Krakeur, who produced "Affairs of State," is engaged to marry Lynn Starr. No date has been set, because he has three plays to do before he gets married: "The Philemon Complex," with Ann Sothern; a play with Nancy Kelly, and a musical version of " Casey Jones." Krakeur says June Havoc is terrific in "Affairs of State." . . Merle Oberon writes that she started her picture in Monte Carlo and that her leading man is sure to become a star; then she neglected to give his name. However, Merle can't" wait to get back to her Bel Air home which she refused to rent while she's gone. ... The Jules Steins, back from four months in Europe, said of the war situation over there: "We never heard war mentioned. Europe is too busy giving, going to, and thinking about parties. It's never been more gay." . . . Mar-jorie Main is making her own clothes, and hopes to rent them to her studio for pictures. COUXD OFF: Warners celebrates 25 years of screen sound by giving " Captain Horatio Hornblower " a Hollywood premiere.

Billy Eckstein's recording of Hold Me Like You Used To," which Harry Warren wrote for " Skirts Ahoy," is a knockout sure as shootin'. . . . Not many directors openly praise the work of a newcomer, but Lloyd Bacon says this about Mitzl Gaynor: "There's the greatest talent this business has unearthed in 20 years." Lloyd just completed directing Mitzl in " Golden Girl." . . . The French people are furious at Wald and Krasna and their soon-to-be released "The Blue Veil" The French press points out that this is a remake of a popular French classic which came out five years ago titled "Le Bleu Etoile- They remind you that two years ago Wald sent an associate to France to buy the hemispheric rights. Europe has seen it and loved it, so Jerry Wald feels he has a sure thing. ... At the " Out ol This World Baseball Series " tonight, Eoy Rogers and Carolina Cotton won't do any running between bases; they'll let their horses do it for them. Roy will ride Trigger and Carolina's got a pony called Tony. That will give you a slight idea of how crazy the evening's bound to be.

Finds 'Alice' Is More Disney Than Carroll "ALICE IN WONDERLAND" Frodaeed by Watt Disney, released by RKO Radie Pictwcs, from the nevel by Lewis Carroll, and presented at the Palace theater. THE CHARACTERS Voice bys Alice ........ ............Kathy Beaanent Mad Hatter Ed Wyaa March Hare Jerry Colons Cheshire Cat Sterling Holloway Caterpillar Richard Haydn Oaeen of Hearts Verna Felton Tweedledam .................... Tweedledec AS by The Walras .....Pat O'Mailey Carpenter ... The Oysters..................... White Rabbit..............Bfll Thompson The Dods...... Rill Thompson . By Mae Tinee Walt Disney's long awaited version of Lewis Carroll's beloved story starts out in promising fashion, with wide eyed Alice playing with her comical kitten, Dinah, on a drowsy summer afternoon. Then, as Alice might say, it becomes " curiouser and curiouser." While the Disney figures' do resemble - John Tenniel's famous sketches, they abound in energy but are utterly lacking in enchantment, and seem more closely related to Pluto, the clumsy pup, than the products of Carroll's imagination. Youngsters probably will find it a likable cartoon, full of lively characters, with Alice's dream bedecked with just a touch of nightmare those who cherish the old story as Thave probably will be distinctly disappointed. Granting that the charms of the story may be intangible and inimitable, and that each reader has his own conception of his pet characters, this version struck me as far more Disney than Carroll. Certainly there are demonstrations of suddenwhimsey and shrewd bits of wit, such as Richard Haydn's unctuous voice speaking for the pipe puffing, conde-cending caterpillar, whose smoke rings spell out his hollow sounding words. The garden of live flowers from Through the Looking Glass has some charm, altho even the little pansies have sour looking faces. The Tea Party has some funny bits, including the Mad Hatter's watch repairing and some implish illustrations, such as the business about half a cup of tea, but not even a dormouse could sleep thru that, and by the time the Red Queen appears, things have become raucous indeed, thereby probably bearing out the contention some people always have held that the classic was a guarded political commentary and actually not intended for children. She's an enormous horror, far uglier in animation than in the delicate sketches of TennieL While it seems to be difficult to 7 k Never fill a pressure cooker more than two-thirds full. put it into words, I think those with a taste for Disney cartoons and who expect nothing else will be pleasantly entertained, but if you've read and re:read the book, you're apt to be as offended, and maybe as unreasonably, so, as the characters Alice encountered after she followed the tardy White Rabbit and went down, down, down.
