The Junior Years way into an acting' role In "From Here to Eternity," won an Academy Award, and immediately was rediscovered not only by his own generation but by the new one. Maurice Chevalier is another who has refuted to rest on hit laurels, and has refuted to al low temporary setbacks to prevent him from working harder towards self improvement. At the beginning of his career, he wa a young, ' bouncy and Unarming linger. Today he stands out as an actor as well as a singer. I recently watched this man well in his seventies in a concert He sang, he Joked and danced, and his every move Indicated that Chevalier still works bard every day in bis life to learn new tricks and to improve on the things be bat already learned. At 72, he look ed at a new script, decided to do toe part, end eaid "it win be good for my career!" Harry Belafonte is another fine example of continuous discipline. After weeks and weeks of concert touring, he often spends days fat a rehearsal hall re-rehearsing a number he has been doing for a long time, lust because be doesn't want to take himself or bis audience for granted. He wants to keep bis sharp edge of perfection we 1 1 boned, and is more than willing to work and work and wort and work to retain bis position-Out- top. - . It all sound to fundamental. yet the history of show business is heavily illustrated with examples of performers who became famous "overnight" and Just as quickly were forgotten because they neglected te work even harder after their name I a GOREN ON BRIDGE .
