Aside from tlie fact that she has thus aged 22 years in seven, tliere is something alike in the two roles for Stevens In both of them she is something of a frump, as she was also in one other memorable film, "A Double Life. Small wonder that Shelley regards frumpy roles as her best ones. They always have been thus far. By contrast, when she has played a glamour puss, the result has not alwajs been to set the world afire. During Shelleys current portrayal m Tlie Diary of Anne Frank, actor - husband Tony Franciosa has neither been out of mind nor out of sight, even though he is in Rome doing a picture with Ava Gardner.

Right now, Shelley Winters needs a publisher. To any presti-, gious national magazine she offers an authoritative article of her own composition and bearing her by-line, about the screen's bright new discovery Millie Per-kin's, who debuts in the title role of Anne Frank. Shelley offers in advance to give any money she receives for this labor of love (which it would be to Slielley) to the Anne Frank Foundation or similar fund set up to perpetuate the name of tlie little Dutch-Jcw-ish girl who was heroine SCREEN : DRAMA MUSIC LEN BOYD. Editor VALLEY TIMES, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 16. 1958 of the most popular actresses in town in the mid-forties. Today they want to be respected for their craftsmanship, not their baby blue eyes or other physical appurtenances. I remember when, with a few exceptions, the only good actors on the screen came from the stage. That isn't true today. Dot Bushes First Steve Allen Disc One of Steve Allen's first activities on returning from Europe was a recording session yesterday with Dot Records vice president Bob Thiele in New York, where Steve cut his first smgle. which Dot is rushing into immediate release. Titled Love Theme From Houseboat. from the Paramount picture Houseboat, starring Cary Cram and Sophia Loren, the Steve Allen disc embodies the Ray Evans-Jay Livingston theme from the movie, plus an additional theme by George Dunning, discovered by Thiele in the pictures music score. Love Theme From Houseboat has pre-viously been recorded as an in- Director Sees New Changes Despite ''inter-family' disagreements which sometnne make trade paper headlines, the Hollywood film industry became more firmly integrated than ever before in its history out of sheer economic necessity in substantially overcoming tlie onslaught of tlie general business recession, Roy Rowland declined yesterday in addressing an executive board meeting of tlie Independent Roy Rowland Productions, Inc., company which he heads. Adversity often breeds strength and a spirit of mutual cooperation, Rowland said. I believe this was the case when box-office receipts readied a perilously low ebb last year, and there was even defeatist talk of naeious deliquency wdth a crowded with youngsters. You sense the new attitude by watching and talking these kids, said Doris. Mark Damon. Hes the leader of the teen-age trouble-makers and Im his no good, mother. Hes terribly Interested in his work.

Tour Set For Scots Guards "It takes seven years and seven generations to make a piper," says tlie Queens Household Pipers, Pipe Majors John Roe and Robert Crabb of the Scots Guards who will be seen at the Pan Pacific Auditorium, October 4 and 5 when the Regimental Band of the Grenadier Guards and the Massed Pipers of the Scots Guards present their spectacle of music and pageantry. The two units of tlie famous Royal Household Guards Regiments will tour 55 cities of Canada and the United States under the tour direction of S. Hurok. Aspiring pipers have found that there is a great deal to know about the bagpipes, or piob Mhor as it is known in Gaelic, before a Scotsman will bestow the title of "piper. Pipers of the Scots Guards, acknowledged the worlds foremost, have been taught their skills by their lathers and by their grandfathers. Almost all of the pipers have ancestors who piped clans into battle on the moors centuries ago. The bagpipe has a notable his-1 tory, It dates back to the Greek era, and later was popular with the Romans. It was used to accompany chanting in monasteries during the middle ages and later was taken up by traveling minstrels. In the 16th century it become popular in Scotland and it is in this country that it reached its full development. me Stevens, and practically everyone in the cast, have the same intense desire to do a good Job, Doris continued. They consider acting as a craft and think of it as an art much more than many players I can recall a decade or so ago. Back in those days it was all a ball Now days, many of todays youngsters belong to small study groups. They read plays, act out scenes, Improvise on situations, create character. Doris thinks this intimate, self-critical study is a healthy situation and one that has helped bring about the new approach to the craft. Through these groups, they learn their mistakes in class and wont make them in front of the camera. And they take their careers so seriously that they learn a lot more than the youngsters did in the fat years of yesterday. Almost all of the teenagers in The Party Crashers belong to some such group, said playing strurqpntal on other labels, but and the Steve Aden version is unique chronicler of this greatest human ; m that tlie Evans-Livingston interest story to come out of, theme is used in tlie first ... ..... ..
