CUUK1KK Government Sues To Make Studios Release for TV But Major Companies Present Strong Front Against New Medium HOLLYWOOD (/P)—The U. S, government last week was suing to force studios to 'relense their pictures to television. But the major companies still presented a strong front against the new medium. Still holding firm was conservative MGM, which lias made no attempt to release its stars or pictures to TV. Solo exception: Red Bkelton. This week MGM boss Dorc Schary told the Hollywood Advertising Chib why the studio will now allow its contract players to appear on the home screens. "First of all, there nre lep-nl problems involved," the executive snid. "We do not know what the attitude of the talent guilds will be. "Secondly, we want control of a star's performance. We have built up the reputation, prestige and power ot our alar list because we have protected our stars. MGM Stnrs Lasl Ixin^er That's why MGAf has more sUirs, - and why its stars have Listed longer, "Tho lighting, cutting and camera angles on TV are not up to movie standards. We cannot afford to have EI star make n poor appearance on TV. "Also, we think stars would wenr out their welcome if they appeared too often on TV. We have proven in lh« movie business that stars like Clark Gable and Spencer Tracy cannot remain popular If they appear In five or six pictures every year. Anyway, there nre not thnt many good pictures for them In a year . . ." StRii of the Tfmrs Sign of the times: the production chart lists 39 feature pictures being made. But six arc shooting In London, and one nptece In the Fiji Islands, Paris, New York, Rome, Mexico, Kanab. Utah, and Fort Lee, Va. Thus a third of the filmo are on location, mostly out of the country. It is any wonder dim workcru are groaning? . . . John Houseman ,who is producing "Julius Caesar" here, says be isn't worried nuout reports that Orson Welles Is planning a film version In Rome. "Orson Is a great nn- nouncer of projects," Housemnn remarked. Stevenson Begins Campaign Without Vote of Former W/7e CHICAGO (#) — Tlie Democratic party has handed ILs presidential standard to Gov. Adlal Stevenson of Illinofe, but he begint his eain- p»lgn forewarned of one vote lie might not gel- — that of his former vita. Attractive Ellen Borden Stevenson, wealthy Chicago socialite and mother of their three sons, bald as the balloting began that she still Intends to vote Republican in November — not for any personal reason but as a matter of political conviction. But November IE three months away. And her mother, Mrs. Jolm Alden carpenter of Chicago and Beverly. Mass., gave a hint her daughter might change her mind. She said that she and her ter believe Ihe Democrats have been in power long enough. "We are in a great quandary at this moment," she continued. Mrs. Stevenson's home on fashionable Astor Strret on Chicago's Gold Const Is but a block away from the Wllilam McCormack Blairs home. It was at the nlfilr house that the governor watched the balloting on television. Mrs. Stevenson pent him a note. Tt read: "Dear Adlai: Congratulations lo the Democratic party for choosing the finest available Democrat tor president. I know you will do your best for Ihe American people. All good wishes lo you personally." She signed It, "Ellen Bord;n Stevenson," A divorce generally Is considered a political strike against a canil- Idate. Although the governor Is not one to discuss his personal affairs, this may have been one reason tor his reluctance to be the Democratic nominee. Mrs. Stevenson, now 42 and a slim brunette, was regarded as one of Chicago's loveliest debutantes when she met Stevenson, then a rising young lawyer 10 years her senior. Their marriage In 192ft, shortly alter her presentation at the Court of St. James in London, was one of the season's most brilliant social events. Aflcr 21 years of married life, she obtained a Nevada divorce in 1040 — shortly after he took office as governor — on the grounds of mental cruelty. Stevenson did not contest the suit, but said then that lie opposed divorce in general. The three sons divide their vacation time between their parents, Two ol them — John Fell. 10, anrl Borden, 10 — looked rm as the wildly cheering convention hailod their dad as "the next president." The third son, Adlai HI. 2!. like Ills mother, watched the stirring events on television. Ho is now In the Marine Corps and training at Quantlco, Va. Mrs. Carpenter attended both the Republican anil DcmnrraLli: National Convonlion.s — tlir lattT on admission tickets sent by her form, cr son-ln-bw. She disclosed that nolitlcnl differences were at the b;i<c of -hnr datiKblor'fi separation anil divorce. .Stevrnson grew InU>rr l str-d in purjifr: affairs during Iht early davs of the lute President Franklin O. Roosevelt's New Deal admviistra- tiotiH. nut his v,-|fe did not share her husband's political internets and as the years passed flip became Increasingly unsyrmiallirtii: toward the New Deal and the Pair Deal of President Truman. Mrs. Stevenson and the governor are on friendly terms — and they have many mutual friends. Some sny her upbringing, wealth nnd artistic temperament did not equip her for Uic gregarious, handshaking and glassbowl life of a public official's wife, Events of tile last Jew days have not swayed her decision to vote Republican In the national election. "t truly believe there should be a change in administration," jlie said yesterday. "I stand on that." Intimates confided she believes j her former husband has done a' good Job as governor. The specu- ' lalion in thai, after ail. she may feel her husband can do a good Job as president and cast her vote for him. ; It's » safe prediction thai, if Stevenson wins, new faces would be seen in Washington. President Truman, In presenting Stevenson at the convention, noted Stevenson had no commitments back of the nomination he said he didn't want.
