Latest dm is that Sinatra Enterprises Is now accepting music manuscripts. Hereto" fore, all such submissions The Lively Arts ware returned to the sender, unopened. It seems he'll record again. I am told that the big reason for Frank's decision to return to work is basically a monetary one. Recently, so the story goes, he was asked for financial help from a friend. Frank, whose generosity is legendary, found ha didn't have the cash on hand to help (his pal. It Isn't that Frank is in any financial trouble, merely that lie found the cash flow was insufficient to finance his generous impulses. So going back to work is a meians to that unMlfitii end, At the scrwntafi of "Em- peww of the North Poite," a film I found an anachronistic dlsappolatnierit, I bad a long talk wltib Ernest Bofgninei about his part in the picture. It's all about hobos md railroad men and much of the action takes place on trains. Borgnlne says he did all his own stunts in it, except for the bit of getting thrown off the train — "I drew the line at that." He says at first he didn'd like the idea 6f working on top of moving trains. When he reported for duty, director Robert Aldrich said, "Ernie, have you ever been on top of a moving train before?" "No, I haven't." on it." And Ernie did and got Ills feet wet right away. He stay* there was one hairy moment, He was standing between two oars, and he momentarily slipped as he looked for thei camera. "I broke out In a cold sweat," Borgnlne says. THE PSYCHIC STARS: Elaine Stewart Her own car was In the repair shop and Elaine Stewart was driving a loianer. Shei didn't trust it, so when she went with her 7 -year-old son, Stewart Heatter, to buy a Christmas tree she said he should sit in front.

News Oriented TV Week in the Offing By RICK DU BROW HOLLYWOOD (UPI) — • This is a week when television programming is expected to have a news-oriented tone because oi three separate stories and the live coverage Television In Review the networks are scheduled to give them in varying degrees. There is the planned Friday reporting of the splashdown and recovery of the Skylab mission's three astronauts. The] splashdown area being aimed rcommerclal at is about 800 miles southwest of S>an Diego. There is the American visit Of Soviet Communist Party chief Leonid Brezhnev. In addition to live reporting, there is cover age that includes a late-night CBS-TV half-hour broadcast tonight about the man and the visit. : " And there is the continuing televising of the Senate Watergate hearings. The live tele- oasts of these hearings by the are by getting in Los networks the way, regularly higher spot ratings Angeles than in New York, and two reasons for this seem to stem froim the time difference between the East and West coasts: Every Tuesday Night Is LADIES NIGHT Ladies Cocktails 1/^ PfJC@ from 8 P.M. pn Dance To The Sounds of Ron Carroll —With the hearings starting at 10 a.m. in the.East and 7 a.m. in the Fair West, there is less competitive network-programming against them at the earlier hour in Los Angeles as they get under way each day. The three commercial networks have recently been taking turns covering the hearings on different days. —Because of the earlier starting time in Los Angeles, many people in the area have the option of watching the hearings for several hours before going to work, whereas in New York most working people are already at their jobs when the Senate proceedings begin. Director Also In Davis - Crawford Film By VERNON SCOTT HOLLYWOOD (UPI) — How do you treat Bette Davis and Joan Crawford when they are working together in a movie? Gingerly! Director Robert Aldrich flung himself into the'breach twice, but never again. The ladies costarred in "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?" and "Hush Hush, Sweet Charlotte" until Miss Crawford became ill.

What a way to put on the Dog I Over 2,300 A director is a ringmaster, a psychiatrist and referee," said Aldrich, griming broadly. "Crawford and Davis were perfect pros on the set, until 6 p.(m. "Then I'd get a call from Joan asking, 'Did you see what that (bleep) did to me today?' A couple of minutes later Bette would call and ask, 'What did tihat (bleep) call you about?' "First on? and then the other. I could count on it every day. "Bette was nominated for an Oscar just before we did 'Hush ... Hush' and was backstage waiting for the results to be called. She thought she would win. Joan was backstage, too She had the proxy of three of the nominees to pick up the award in the event they won. "When they announced Anne Bancroft had won, Joan-pushed Bette aside and' with a great big smile accepted the Oscar for Anne. "Bette has the longest memory in history. When we began to make 'Hush ... Hush! Sweet Charlotte' Bette stood just off- camera rehearsing her lines when Joan was working in a scene. "One day she watched Joan do a scene and then asked me in a loud voice, 'She's not going to do it that way, is she?' Joan got sick and we 'had to replace her with Olivia DeHavilland, I'd never go through it again." On ','The Big Knife" Rod Steiger and Jack Palance were enemies. They feuded and fussed throughout the film. ; "One day Rod had to do a very dramatic scene and Jack began throwing phonograph records at him. They were whizzing by Rod's head. I was amused because Rod just kept reciting his lines," Aldrich recalled. "But it ruined the take. Finally I told them we were quitting for 'the day and they could either call me that night and apologize for acting like children or telephone their attorneys in the morning. "I sat by the phone that night, worrying. But they finally called." In his new picture, "Emperor of the North .Pole," Aldrich worked with Lee Marvin for the third time and Ernie Borgnine for the eighth time, Both men get along professionally and personally. "I couldn't have matte 'Emperor of the North Pole' if Lee and Ernie didn't have mutual respect and admiration for each other. Each was too proud to let the other guy walk away with the picture.
