. TUESDAY, OCTOBER 15,1957 THE LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA. PAGE THREE MOVIES - TV - RADIO by Enki'ne Johnson HOLLYWOOD—(NBA) — Behind the Screen: Maybe it's the brisk fall weather or maybe the out-of- work writers, for out-of-work .TV comedians are now .selling* their best lines to movie stars. Anyway, Jayne Mansfield and Bins Crosby have just scored on the laugh parade. Someone in London asked Jayne if she was still feuding •with Zsa Zsa. Jayne's icy reply was: "Zsa Zsa who?" And when a pal asked Bing Crosby, "Where's Bob Hope these days?" Bing replied: "He's in Little Rock entertaining the troops." * * * Alice Faye and Phil Harris 'are coming out of their long-time retirement I hear, ,to headline the floor show at the Desert Inn in Las. Vegas during the sixth, annual Tournament of Champions in April of 1958. I'll bet on Phil showing up but Alice has changed her mind before about returning to the spotlight . . . With moviegoers screaming about "gray-topped actors being mismatched on the screen with "too young" leading ladies, "how about that Sophia Loren-Carlo Ponti marriage? He's better than twice Sophia's 22 years. * * * there's no business like show business for the second generation, either. But it's mostly the sons, not the daughters, of famed movie and stage stars who are turning out to be "slices off the old hams." Latest member of the Screen Actors Guild is Bob Mitchum's 16-year.old Jim, a spittin' image of the star, who is playing Bob's younger brother in "The Whippoorwill," a movie about moonshiners in the Deep South. Jim, .an inch taller than Bob, seems to have inherited the "natural" acting talents that have always trademarked the elder Mitchums' roles and is said to be eager for a full-time acting career. RECENT second-generation newcomers to Hollywood cameras include: Helen Hayes' son, James Mac Arthur; Pat Wayne, son of John Wayne; Alan Ladd's 10-year- old David, working with him right now in "The Proud Rebel"; silent star Billie Dove's son, 18-year-old Bob Kenaston; Bill Wellman Jr., son of the director; Jeel McCrea's handsome sprout, Jody; Dennis, son of Andy Devine, and Alan Dinehart III, who recently played Dean Stockwell's buddy in "The Careless Years." On TV there are Ricky and David Nelson, Ronnie Burns, Jason Robards Jr. and Tony Douglas, son of Laura LaPlante. Oddly, the only career-minded daughters of stars who readily come to mind are Mary Martin's daughter, Bob Montgomery's Elizabeth, and Diana Barrymore of "Too Much, Too Soon" fame. GALE RUSSELL won a two- month reprieve, to keep a film 409-415 E.

Her hearing is set for mid-December. * » * The Witnet: A neon sign blinked out in front of a "We Never lose" gambling, palace, in Las Vegas. For several embarrassing hours, it read: "We Never Lose." ELIZABETH TAYLOR says she lost 30 pounds during the two weeks she was in the hospital having her baby. She's now back to her normal weight of 115. Hubby Mike Todd is way overweight, though,—in money. He's said to be earning over $400,000 a week from the profits of "Around the World in 80 Days." It's the reason Mike can afford to rent Madison Square Garden for a night for "a little party for my friends." Everything can be deducted on his income tax—he hopes.
