Acting Success Due to Casting By JAMES BACON' AI Aloiie-Telei-ision H'riler calls Tobias, "but I do "Because 1 worked on (he stage with him-HOLLYWOOD (AP)--Volumes of Bogey was one of the world's Hollywood prose have been mil- ten over the years about Ihe magic unknown quality thai makes one aclnr or actress a star while another, equally talented, remains jusl another journeyman. I recently put the question to veteran character actor George Tobias, who has worked with all Ihe stage and movie giants in his more than 40 years in the business. Wilh no hesitation, Tobias answered in one word. "Casting." To illustrate, he cited the laic Humphrey Bogart, one of the movies' greatest stars, "Few people remember 11," re- ,. S ***· ivnrst acloi's in his early career. "Producers always cast him as a society leading man because he had come from a Park Avenue family. He was terrible. I used to feel sorry [or him. "Then, one day, a producer who had guts and vision made Bogey the killer Duke Manlee in "The Petrified Forest' and a star was born--and he became a great actor once his true personality was cast light." Tobias is currently coslarring in "A New Kind of Love," with Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward. He believes that the picture will make a major star ont of Miss Woodward--even more so than her Academy Award of a few years back. "This girl is the new Carole Lombard--and no producer, director before Mel Shavelson ever realized it before. Mark my prediction." Tobias laments one sad fact of Hollywood's passing show. "We've lost our giants--Gable, Copper, Garfield, Bogey, Flynn-and we're not replacing them."
