All four male assign-ments, including Albert's are 'highly important t Red Skelton and Director Norman Z. McLeod ars J Close to a deal for a picture based on McLeod's story, u"Mail Order Cowboy." They have had the idea for- such J$ film for approximately a decade, and recently revived j3t when Skelton starred in "Public Pigeon No. 1" with ; McLeod directing. Originally the two thought of this 'semiwestern subject when McLeod directed Skelton in ;fLady Be Good," his first film at MGM. The story deals 'with a cowboy who runs his life practically out of mail 'tjrder catalogue witl various amusing complications en-Uuing. "Public Pigeon No. 1," made at RKO, will be 'Teleased by U-I in June. t ' ' . , jpETER LORRE 'SAD SACK' MENACE Peter Lorre, recently in "Silk Stockings" at MGM, will be a first-line menace in "The Sad Sack" with Jerry 'Lewis, David Wayne and Phyllis Kirk..

"God's Little Acre," Security Production, is to be directed by Anthony Mann, for Producer Sidney Harmon. Robert Webb, director, and Joseph Petracca, writer, have come up with a story titled "Crazy Boy" concerning the friendship of a young southern lad with a Negro singer. It is said to be inspired by the success of country and western warblers, who are enjoying such a vogue. Webb worked on this during his spare time while directing "Way to the Gold."' Ha, was the director of "Love Me Tender" with Elvis Presley, but there is no indication that the new picture is as yet designed for the rock 'n roll champ. Dave Siegel has engaged Judy Garland for three weeks, beginning May 3 at the Flamingo in Las Vegas. TV PRODUCER PLANS 'VICIOUS CIRCLE' , Shifting from TV to feature pictures as various people have done lately, Bud Yorkin, pro&ucer-director of Tennessee Ernie Ford's show, has formed Nickroy Pro rV' benevieve Aumont that he is teing sought by Producer Charles Schnee for "Company of Cowards," written by Jack Schaeffer, author of "Shane" and "Tribute to a Bad Man." In thjs picture, Franciosa would have a tense dramatic part in contrast to his comedy role in "This Could Be th Night." Genevieve Aumont, who just visited the set pf "An ' Affair to Remember" at the invitation of Actor Louis Mercier, now has a part in the film as a French siren who is Cary Grant's girl friend before he meets Deborah Kerr. 2!

Clare Luce Pens Play for Gishcs NEW YORK, March 11 W) Clare Boothe Luce, both a diplomat and a Broadway hit playwright, has completed a new play for October presentation on Broadway with Lil lian and Dorothy Gish in the starring roles. Mrs. Luce is now finishing the script on this new. play, "The Little Dipper," in Phoenix, Ariz., where she re cently saw the Gish sisters do a performance- together in 1 he Chalk Garden. It was the first performance the stage and screen stars had done together since they were 5 years old, the Gish sisters said today. 10 theatres! l 1 rj 1 - 1 hi , ' )rH.f NH ' . .' ' ..... . .J . . THE SOU N DISC BOARD Strange Music Heard at Monday Concert BY ALBERT GOLDBERG What Virgil Thomson used to call the intellectual au dience" turned out en masse for the Monday Evening Con cert in County Auditorium last night, the magnets being the first local performance of Pierre Boulez s Le Marteau sans Maitre (The Hammer Without a Head), which the composer conducted, and an electronic tape designated as G e s a n g der . Jungnnge (Song of the Adolescent) by Karlheinx Stockhausen. One would like to stop there, for this sort of thing pretty well beggars descrip tion. Boulez is a 32-year-old Frenchman who in a short time and with comparatively few compositions to his credit has forged to the front among contemporary extremists, a position he shares with Stockhausen, a 29-year-old Ger man, and Luigi Nono, an Italian in the same age group. Group of Poems ' Le Marteau sans Maitre" centers around a group of three short poems by Rene Char, which were printed irt the original French in the program presumably because they are untranslatable. In Boulez's composition they are sung, if that is the word, by a soprano, with before and after commentaries by an instrumental ensemble consisting of alto flute, viola, guitar, vibraphone, xylorimba, and various percussion in-f struments. It is said that some GO hours of rehearsal were required to prepare the work and that is entirely credible, for while the technical difficulties of execution did not appear to be excessive except for the singer, the problems of getting the right notes in what the composer considers to be the right places must have been formidable and involve ft "'"W h o JT0NY CURTIS - MARTHA HYER 7 CHARLES BiCKFORD KATHRYN GRANT WILLIAM REYNOLDS -RUSS MORGAN BllKE EDWARDS lam ir BLAKE EDWARDS m I ROBERT ARTHUR ; 1 fib ClOm NAOCR'JUUE ADAMS MARIANNE (C0K-I15A MARTIJinil-CIA SCAIA SYCNCY CHAPIUKRANT VIUIAWS'JOHN CAVIM Tomorrow in . . . mm jti. if tj-i-.- 1 fit,! lit n a species of higher mathemat ics. Plainly there are ingen ious organizational proced ures in this music, but if there is any meaning in a musical sense it evaded us completely. It sounded more like Webern than anyone else, with a minimum of un related notes carefullv dis tributed and no doubt artful ly calculated, but combining m a way that relates to noth ing in past experience. Catherine Gayer, sang the solo, and the instrumental-1 ists Arthur Gleghorn, Mil ton Thomas, Theodore Nor man, William Kraft, Dorothy Kemsen and Lester Remsen semed to function accur ateiy under tne composer s direction. Assorted Sound Stockhausen's "Gesang dcr Junglinge" was' a collection of assorted sounds assembled on tape, with a boy's voice as the only recognizable ingredient. There were noises like the croak of frogs, the plash of water, the rattle of sheet metal, gastric disturbances, or what have you? and u this is music it's time to drop the H-bomb. The program began, not unsuitably, with Thomas Tel-lis "Lamentations" I and II, a pleasantly archaic exhumation euphoniously sung by Joyce Ferrin, Cora Lauridsen, Richard Robinson, Howard Ghitjian, and Robert Oliver,' with Robert Craft conducting. .fNS&i WWWI x SMI Jtiriim.i j CXI SHOW wjwowwcu ,!
