Linda Darnell. 43, movie. st;it:e and television actress died today of burns suffered Friday in the home of a friend. Warden Fred Ilertwig of Cook County Hospital said Miss Darnell died at 2:25 p.m. CST. She said that Patricia was awakened by smoke, and woke her mother and Miss Darnell. "Intense heat was coming from the living room." Mrs. Curtis said. "Linda told us to grab wet towels, so we grabbed wet towels." She said smoke was dense and flames drove her and her daughter back from the stairs, and they went to a second-floor window from which the girl jumped, and she was assisted out by firemen. "I thought she was behind me, but she was not," Mrs. Curtis said. "Linda went into the living room, apparently thinking we had gone downstairs. Miss Darnell appeared in stage, screen and television productions. She has made more than 50 movies, including "A Letter to Three Wives," "The Song of Bernadette," "Blood and Sand" and "Forever Amber." Most recently, in October, she played in "Love Out of Town" at the Playhouse in St. Charles, HI., west of Chicago. RECLINING FIGURE Actress Julie Christie, on location in Dublin while filming "Young Cassidy," takes a brief break during a lull in the shooting to grab a quick nap. The inventive trouper used a borrowed mattress and cover and her shopping bag in lieu of a dressing room. She had been under intensive care in tne hospital s million-dollar burn treatment center. Her burns were suffered in a fire which damaged a townhouse where she was visiting in suburban Glenview early Friday mor ning. Jane Curtis, 38, her hostess and former secretary, and Mrs. Curtis' daughter, Patricia, 16, were burned less severely, and a neighbor was cut trying to reach the actress. Firemen found Miss Darnell on the living room floor. They said damage, estimated at $4,-000, was centered around a sofa in the living room. Mrs. Curtis said that she, her daughter and Miss Darnell had remained up late in the living room, watching a television presentation of one of the actress' old movies, "Star Dust." Not 'Horror' Terror Linda Darnell Fits Karloffs Roles Quick-Writinq Mancini Opens Tuesday At Harvey's Hits With College Crowd By Eddy Gilmore London (IP). "I don't make horror films," said actor Boris Karloff. "Terror is a better word." Here to make still another chiller, the 78-year-old Karloff denies the tag of the high priest of horror. Vintage titles such as "Frank horror and sadism when introduced purely and simply for their own sake. "The idea of terror which is much better is to make people's hair stand on end, and not to make them lose their breakfasts.'' He went on: "The kind of formula with which I've been associated all these years is rooted firmly in legend. Frankenstein, Dracula, The Mummy, are all basically fairy stories." He thinks they are familiar, in some form or another, in almost every country in the world, and that this is why the formula has so stubbornly survived. "I still get letters from children who've seen the original Frankenstein on television," he Eddie Smith To Play a n Cabrillo big sellers, especially among the college crowd. His own sub-teen children dig "The Beatles." That brings up the question what does he think about Beatle music? "To tell the truth, I never think much about it. I figure their market is a certain age group mine another," says the tall young man from Aliquippa, Pa. Three Stooges Open Tomorrow At Circle Star San Carlos A treat for the younger set is slated at the Circle Star theater this week as the San Carlos organization presents a double bill featuring the Three Stooges and a production in-the-round of "Sleeping Beauty." The fairy tale is complete with music and ballet sequences. Performances will be at 10 a.m. Monday through Saturday, with matinees at 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are available at the theater and all agencies. BUY U.S. SAVINGS BONDS By James Bacon AP Movie-Television Writer Hollywood (IP). Henry Mancini composes hit songs the way some people dash off a letter to mother. The Oscar-winning composer took all of a half-hour to write "Dear Heart," which Frank Sinatra calls one of the greatest of the new songs. It took him a little longer but not much to compose the music for "Moon River" and "Days of Wine and Roses." "I don't think I've ever spent more than an hour on any one song," says Mancini, "but that doesn't count the thinking that goes on beforehand." At the moment he is scoring "The Great Race," a picture that runs about three hours. It takes him a whole week to write all the music for a movie that long. That's why he is so much in demand to score movies it costs a lot of money to hire musicians by the week. Mancini has to write songs fast in order to work in all his other jobs. In an era when big bands are scarce, Mancini plays dozens of college concerts per year. His record albums are Now Serving Every Monday Evening Exotic Costume Dancer Fran Stevens models one of the exotic costumes worn in Barry Ash-ton's "French Quater Carnival." Fran is one of the many beautiful Ashton girls singing and dancing in the new musical about New Orleans playing in Reno at the Golden's M a r d I Gras Theater-Restaurant.

Japanese Film Sets New Record Berkeley "Chushingura," the Japanese art spectacular, has completed its 32nd week at the Cinema theater in Berkeley. This is a new art film record in the United States.

To them the poor old monster wasn't an evil, horrifying object, but a helpless, inarticulate creature, forsaken and grossly misused by his creator. He was very badly done by, as the children say." Karloff said the only time he ever fought with James Whale, director of the first two Frankenstein movies, was when the director insisted on the monster committing a cruel act involv ing a child. "I begged him to leave it out," said Karloff, "and the se quence was later removed." These sentiments come quite naturally to Boris Karloff, who is in reality a cultured Englishman, born to the gentle name of William Henry Pratt. In his latest film, "House at the End of the World," Karloff reverts historically to a classic monster role for the first time since "The Son of Frankenstein" in 1939. He is master of a creepy old house in a remote corner of England where many weird menacing rituals take place. lioliuwood By & Bob Thomas AP Movia-Televition Writer iMVMAMAAiUUUUUWUWWtAAAAAAAMU Hollywood (JP).Q. Do witches have babies? A. On television they do. If all goes according to expectations, next fall will bring the birth of what may well be the most notable baby in these precincts since the arrival of De-siderio Arnaz IV in 1953. Young Desi happened to greet the world on the precise day that his parents, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, were enacting the charade of the birth of a baby on their television show, "I Love Lucy." The result was a television audience that broke all records. A dozen years later, a like situation is brewing. Elizabeth Montgomery, star of the top-rated "Bewitched," has an-nounced that she and husband William Asher, who also directs the show, are expecting their second child in the fall. Tele-vision schedules being what they are, there is no choice but that Samantha, the witch Miss Montgomery plays on the series, must become pregnant, too. This is not the first time that the Ashers' family plans have upset the show's scheduling. Shortly after the pilot was filmed, she discovered she was expecting their first child, Bill Jr. The series had no trouble finding buyers, but then came the long wait until Liz had the baby. She began filming three weeks afterward; her doctor advised six. "I plan to take more than three weeks this time," said Elizabeth. "Like maybe four." She'll be finishing this season's product in a fortnight, then gets a month's breather before returning to start the new season. "We'll only do five or six pregnancy-oriented show s," Asher declared. "We don't want to drive it into the ground. The rest of the time, no special notice will be made of Samantha's pregnancy. Other things do happen to pregnant women." Asher is ideally suited for the coming assignment; he was directing "I Love Lucy" when Lucille had her baby. "We were able to time the show to the actual birth because Lucille had a Caesarian," he recalled. TOUR Alaska . . . Wonderful sightseeing awaiis you in our 49th State.
