SIXTEEN EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1952 Phone 4600 for a WANT AD Taker In Hollywood - By JERSKINE JOHNSON NBA Staff Corrwpondent HOLLYWOOD — BeWnd The Screen: There's no "let's-put-lt-on- film" from Danny Thomas now that he's clicking big in movies and on NBC-TV All Star Revue. Danny wants to go on being a live TV star because of his contemporary humor. Danny said: "They couldn't re- ist.;e my shows on film because jokes about Truman and Taft won't be funny three years from now." But he is saying that "for the comedian, television is the biggest headache ever invented. As a night club star, I had to come up with four good new routines a year. Now I'm being: asked to do it once a month. It's a monster." His dream TV contract: Six shows a year. "Just enough to stay in the pie."

He told me: "I expected the critics would call me a sad-eyed mutt and a hook- nosed jerk. But you know, it's my ugliness that's making the movie a hit. "People believe it when they see me as a struggling songwriter. And they believe the love story lor the same reason." * * * Left red-faced and holding the bag: A TV producer with a pilot reel co-starring Walter Wanger and Joan Bennett as a Mr; and Mrs. team In a "happy family" series. * • * Pre-mayhem note: The word's out that Bette Davis, playing a bit part at the end of Shelley Winters' starring picture, "Phone Call From a Stranger," wraps up the acting honors and walks away with the film. * * * Irene Manning, who co-starred with Dennis Morgan In Warners' "The Desert Song," is back in town after three years to resume her career.

Michael North, whose movie career fizzled, is about to reap a fortune with color decals of movie stars, * * * Line from the script of "We're Not Married," which concerns a justice of the peace who started marrying people before he was licensed: 'It will be the biggest scandal since that mink coat got into the White House." * * * The stores being told that certain members of the Will Rogers family objected to some fictiohized hardships that weren't true in the Warner film biography of the famed cowboy humorist. Dramatic license was taken by the screenplay writers to create sympathy for Will, who in real :ife had plenty of money and was the kingpin of Southern California's polo-playing millionaire set. It was Producer Bryan Foy who finally convinced the Rogers family ;hat a little fiction was necessary. Foy drove home his point with the classic: "Nobody's going to feel sorry for a polo player who broke his mallet." * * * Writer. Jules Epstein after the :revlew of a flop movie: "It was a 'our-snore picture." * « • Hilarious sequence: Jerry Lewis trapped on the. deck of a diving submarine in "Sailor Beware." * * * Mitzl Green, the child actress who grew up to become a night club singing star, is facing a movie cam- era for the first time in 15 years. Mitzi, who is the wife of Director Joe Pevney ,and the mother of three children, was asked if she had a change of heart about Hollywood. "I should say not," said Mitzi, who is on the s«t of the new Abbott and Costello comedy, "Lost in Alaska." "I always wanted to make pictures but no one ever asked me until now." Mitzi's last film was with Jack Benny in "Transatlantic Merry-Go- Round." "J. was still just a kid," she remembers. "They put a black satin dress on me to make me look grown up. Now I'm-grown up and trying to look like a kid." ** * * An older actor with fading vision and impaired hearing was introduced to Zsa Zsa Gabcr. "I didn't get the name," he mumbled. , "Zsa Zsa, Zsa, Zsa," the introducer repeated. The old timer blinked his eyes.
