Garden City Telegram Wtilnetiduy, November 16, 1977 Page 1A The Gossip Column Whistle Trademark: a Product of Skepticism By ROBIN ADAMS SLOAN Q: How did the late Bing Crosby acquire his whistle, the trademark of so many of his records? — Y.T., Dallas. A: When Bing began his recording career, Columbia Records was so uncertain of how to handle him, they assigned a meager four-piece orchestra to back him up. The recording director, Ben Selvin, was even more skeptical, and advised the young hopeful not to sing at all for the second chorus — just whistle. The gimmick stuck. Q: Since his last Broadway play flopped, Tennessee Williams has been pretty quiet. Is he all washed up? — T.W., Tacoma, Wash. caused by his ultra-candid autobiography. A playwright of his immense stature can never be counted out and Tennessee is trying, in fact, to rework the failed play to see if reshaping the material might salvage the project. He's also working on a screenplay based on his short story, "The Yellow Bird," at the, insistence of none other than Faye Dunaway. She'd like to star in the property. Q: What's happened to that great old actress Lynn Fontanne since her husband Alfred Lunl died? Is she still living in Wisconsin? — H.T., Los Angeles. Bing A: Hardly. Perhaps he's letting the dust settle a bit after the failure of his "Vieux Carre" last season and the stir Fontanne A: Miss Fontanne has moved to London and is living at the Dorchester Hotel to be near old friends. An amazingly gutsy move for a 90-year-old woman. powerhouse stars decorate the main floor, while "memory- laners" adorn the second story quarters. At times, certain celebrities, in keeping with a newer look, want their caricatures changed. For instance, some years ago, Carol Charming insisted thai an early, plump version of her face be removed from the wall. After some coaxing, owner Vincent Sardi Jr. acquiesced, and now a happier and more svelte Carol beams on customers from above a prime table location. Q: Neil Diamond is my favorite singer, and I've v/ondered why he doesn't combine a screen career with his record and TV activities. — O.G., Elmira, N.Y. A: Translating success from one medium to another is tricky business, but Neil is clearly ready to try. He's expected to make his screen debut in a contemporary version of "The Jazz Singer," the pioneer Al Jolson film which introduced sound to the movies 50 years ago. Meanwhile, you'll be hearing plenty of sound from Neil in his upcoming TV special and new record album. Q: Will Diane Keaton be rich from making "Looking for Mr. Goodbar"? — F.W., Mason City, Iowa. « A: Not really. Diane is sensational in the movie, but everyone at the studio didn't agree, initially, that she was right for the part of the promiscuous and ill-fated schoolteacher. Producer Freddie Fields had to fight to get her the role and the gamble paid off in career terms for Diane. She was paid $50,000 plus a small percentage — a relatively modest figure as star salaries go. But Diane is now busy on a Woody Allen movie and has another lined up after that. Q: I'm really looking forward to seeing Ryan O'Neal in his sequel to "Love Story." How is that movie coming? — A.I., Pittsburgh, Pa. A: Problems, problems. Bob Evans, who is producing the film, wants Erich Segal, who wrote the sequel "Oliver's Story" and is doing the screen play, to advance the time of the book ten years. This would mean that the new movie would take up ten years after Ali MacGraw dies in "Love Story." Segal is reluctant and so far Evans has been adamant. Rumors are that the reason is Evans doesn't want to have to use film clips of Ali MacGraw, his ex-wife, in the flashbacks. If you wait a decade, Oliver wouldn't be still living with the memories of his late wife. Q: The Steve McQueen-All MacGraw marriage seemed lo be such a happy one. Is their split a great sadness lo the Hollywood crowd? — N.P., Seattle. A: All of All's friends are scared to death that the separation won't be permanent. They feel Ali ought to gel out, and think that Steve's peculiar hermit-like ways are blighting her life. Robin Adams Sloan welcomes questions from readers.
