fHfi SANDUSKY ttEGlStEfi STAR-NEWS Saturday, September 18, 1»5» Singer Who Reached Top Without Effort Had Struggle To Survive »y FRED DANZIG HjJSW" YORK, 'Sept. 15 (VP)—What happens when a •Inrer is a success without the struggle? Joan Weber is a case in point. In November, 1954, Joan Weer's recording of "Let Me Go over" made show business his- ory, Introduced on a dramatic {television show, the record's im- Jpact was astounding. It passed Ithe million-mark in sales in just few weeks and Joan, still a teenager, fresh out of Paulsboro, N. J., found herself booked into New York's Copacabana. "When the record caught on," Joan said, "I was caught without an act. I didn't even know how to take a bow. And there I was, playing the Copa. "I had no time to get my bearings. I just wasn't ready." •Bookings Taper Off < After a while, those plush bookings tapered off and early 'this year, Joan was out of work. JThat's when she decided to make :a change in her act. She bought ; sleek gowns, changed her hair from dark to blonde, learned to put over sophisticated ballads. Presto! The new Joan Weber! She opened at the Casino Royal in Washington about six months ago and won rave reviews. Then she played the nicer Houston, Dallas, Ottawa and New Orleans. Reviewers, besides praising her singing, wrote about her "graciousness . . . her Grace Kellyish charm." In the coming months, Joan will be playing the Miami-Havana circuit. No Begrudging Her newly won acceptance gives Joan an opportunity to speak of the flash-in-the-pan star's problem. But Joan said she would not change a thing in her career if she had it to do over. "I can see now that it is turning out so well, and I wouldn't have begrudged myself those proud months when I was on top, ,k Joan said. "In this business, that's what we work for." However, she makes this point: "I'm talking about the mental approach. As for bookings, being an instant hit didn't help in the long run because I had no experience to speak of. "Now, I feel that I'm ready for the Copa. I didn't feel that way the first time." Broker's Wife Identifies One Of Abductors Charges Two Women Kidnaped Her From Soil's Home.

This means a problem for Para mount makeup man Carl Styvera. an artist in his own right who has his own ideas about what should go where and how. It also means problems for photographers be cause Hayward feels the same way about having his pictures touched. Carl, don't make me look like schoolboy." Hayward tells Silvera every morning as he comes to work for the "The Search for Bridey Murphy." Hayward thinks he should look his age. "Passing me off as a 25-year-old something Paramount would never try to do, yet the makeup man attacks wrinkles with a ven-i geance," he said. "The lines in my face are 'age 40' lines, There's nothing wrong with them—not if you're 40, anyhow.'.? Lines Are Interesting Hayward thinks that he is reasonable about some corrective facial actions, but he spells them out. "Let the wrinkles stay in," he said. "If there's dirt on my nose, or one eye is closed, then it can be doctored. Otherwise, I want to be left as I am. "Lines can make a face more in teresting, I think, and indicate character, look at Spencer Tracy. Now he has a much more interesting face right this minute than he had 20 years ago, and he has lines, and you see them." Silvera likes Hayward. Hayward likes Silvera. And still it's the same line about lines every day after they swap good mornings "Now Carl—no schoolboy face today," the actor will say, "I'm 40." It's probably lucky fhat Hayward's type is small in numbers here. Otherwise a lot of makeup men and retouchers might be oat of work. SAN DIEQO, CAL.
