w :w r r W W , V t"" V V v? '" -I ! Cooper Will Film xio of Westerns ' r Exliibitors Vote Him Biggest r Draw at American Box Office BY HEDDA HOPPER Dined with Joe Moskowitz, V.P. of 20th Century-Fox, and Bob Goldstein at Chasen'sk Learned Bob had polled exhibitors as to what stars and what type pictures sell best Answer came back: Gary Cooper In westerns; so he was immediately signed for three films: "Commancheros," A Ik I i "Big River, Big Man" which Thomas Duncan j wrote and Vincent Sher- 'I man produces, with third yet to be chosen. Big Coop starts first in Janu- J ary. Laurence Durrell, au-', thor of "Justine," wrote a pal that for the picture i of his story he wants Audrey Hepburn. Inerid Joanne "Woodward Bergman and Joanne Woodward. His dreams are even bigger than his talent Lorena Danker Mayer met Michael Nidorf, sophisticated New Yorker and delightful man, at Maggie Ettineer's birthday party at the Waldorf in October. I Now he's arrived here to spend holidays with Lorena and the romance looks as though it would lead to , the altar. Will Fowler's play "Julius Castro," modernization of Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar," has upset our pro-Commies. Written in blank verse, and set In Cuba, , list of characters most of whom will wear beards includes: Bruto in place of Brutus, Marco Antonio in place of Marc Antony, and Casio Valdez for Cassius. Julius Castro Is assassinated in the sports arena as he prepares to give a five-hour speech. Albert Mc-Cleery has asked CBS for leave of absence to direct. E Lucy's Troubles Poor Lucy, everything happens to her. Even nature conspired against her, so "Wildcat' opening was postponed from Wednesday to Friday because scenery was snow-bound between Philadelphia and New York. But when I talked with her she considered it a good omen. Says advance sale is over $2,000,000 and she just hopes the people will like her. Well, they'll love her. Bob Hope takes off Monday on his Caribbean tour a happy man. His last TV show was a dilly and he should win an Oscar for "Facts of Life." God knows he deserves it It's about time a comedian got one. Speaking of laughter I hope you didn't miss Marian Lome in "Harvey"; she was enchanting. Steve Boyd's been away since May 3 and made one picture, "The Big Gamble," with Darryl Zanuck. He went to London theater four times with Haya Hara-reet but found fare dull. So for 12 weeks while wait- ingJor "Cleopatra" to proceed he occupied his mind reading history. "For first time in my life I was home sickand for Hollywood." Now he's soaking up Palm Springs sunshine, goes back to London when filming resumes Jan. 3. Thinks Liz Taylor very intelligent in approach to Cleopatra role; she's read everything about character. Steve believes she'll be wonderful as the Egyptian queen. Dean Martin chosen Man of the Year by Boys Republic of Italy; they'll have big benefit at Waldorf in New York, March 23. : Metro's engaged Piper Laurie for picture "Alligator" which she's now playing off-Broadway, But iey:vegot to have Jo Van Fleet, too, when she makes the picture, she's superb in it (Released by Chicago Trlbune-N.V.
