, : Port ll-TUES,MAS. 8, 1940 THE TV SCENE Produce Old Sour Gripes BI CECIL SMITH Television is such an ephemeral beast, constructed of the wispy stuff of air, that the slightest thing can completely eliminate it. like the call from Aunt Minnie just as the hero confronts the heroine. Or, in my particular case, the fog that closed International Airport Sunday night. I had planned to see Julie Harris in her Sunday Showcase effort but while Miss Harris was emoting, the plane I was in was endlessly circling, waiting for a hole in the mush. (The circling wouldn't have been so bad and I wouldn't have missed Miss Harris so much if, as several of us suggested, the stewardesses would have reopened the bar but they wouldn't.) So it was in a rather irate mood that I watched the conversation that is Open End and stimulating talk it was for most of the three hours. But along the way, David Susskind brought forth one of his old theories again that it is impossible to do first-rate work in television anywhere but in New York, that the labors that emerge from Hollywood are worthless. And David kept trying to thrust this into the mouths of the gagwriters who were his guests with, it seemed to me, little success. Jack Douglas indicated that he had done very agreeable work in Hollywood for Bob Hope and other comics. For a time he even wrote for Jack Paar from these palmy shores. And Mel Tolkin, another of the best in the business, tried a couple of times to say that some excellent work had come from Hollywood, "the Danny Thomas show and . . ." but David rode right over him and shut him off. iff ' iibk-X into!.. '- LimmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmJL Morse, Sta fford and Kenton One rather saddening fact that was reiterated in the talk was that next year on TV there will be a return to the situation comedy cycle the Father Loves, Mother Loves, Sister Loves, Everybody Loves banality. (This is a bit unfair there are some promising items on the schedule, including a series starring Andy Griffith, one with Tony Randall, another with Peggy Cass.) While the Open End group properly brought forth that two of the funniest situation comedies in history were produced in New York Sgt. Bilko and Mr. Peepers they did not mention that from New York also have come some of the most awful ones, Including Too 'jYoung to Go Steady, which Mr. Susskind loosed on the air. Nostalgic Salute to Big Bands Era Two items of more than usual interest occupy the screen tonight. The success of Startime's nostalgic salute to the era of the big bands, "The Swingin' Years," brings a second edition, "The Swingin', Singin' Years," Channel 4 at 8:30 in color. Aboard will be Ella Mae Morse, Jo Stafford and Vaughn Monroe and such great bands as those of Stan Kenton, Woody Herman, Charlie Barnett, Eddy Howard, Freddie Martin and Louis Jordan. Channel 11 at 11 p.m. will turn its cameras to the annual Golden Globes Awards of the Foreign Press Assn. in a special 90-minute telecast from the Cocoa-nut Grove. Virtually everybody who is anybody from Marilyn Monroe to Tuesday Weld, from Bing Crosby to Simone Signoret, are scheduled to be on hand. Previews of Dobie Gillis, KNXT (2), 8:30 p.m. Dobie and a buddy conduct a biology experiment on chickens with calamitous results. Good show for the teen-age market. Startime, KRCA (4), 8:30 p.m. (Color). You asked for it ... so tonight Startime answers the demand for another swingin' show with "The Swingin' Singin' Years." On tap: Jo Stafford, Freddy Martin with Jack Fi-na, Vaughn Monroe. Charlie Barnett, Stan Kenton in hits of the 40s. Wjatt Earp, KABC (7), 8:30 p.m. Marshal Earp gets an assist from Emma Clanton in his efforts to keep her youngest brother away from the lawlessness of the rest of the family.
