Her public still thinks of her as a child, making IH.T ineligible for grownup rolos, and she's getting too old to play children. It's a crucial time for the child-star and, for many girls, the end of film fame is finalized by this period. Producers and directors still think of them as children, and no "young lady" in her teens likes t'u be patted on what .she fondly hopes is her grownup-looking hairdo. Es- peciaJly when the patting is done by someone %vho tells her that there'.-; not a single child-part in his current epic. * * * Few feen-agers successfully bridge this gap between kiddie- roies and adult parts. Seldom do they have the good fortune of Natalie Wood. Natalie said goodbye to pigtails in a highly emotional, though youthful, role. She played the girl friend of the late Jam PS Dean in "Rebel Without Cause." This Warner Bros, youth shocker gave her the ideal vehicle with which to graduate from the bobby-soxer brigade. That sho was fully prepared to st'-p info this strongly dramatic i-hai'iicti'T izatinn is evidenced by the fact that sb.e has more screen. r;Hio and television credits .lhan many actresses twice her age.

Then she waited three, long weeks for the studio's decision. It was well worth the wait. If ever a young girl had an opportunity to prove her ability as a talented, and seasoned actress this was HER chance! After this pictuic, no one could possibly think ol her again as a child-star. * * * Speaking of awards for child- actors, Tommy Cook was 10 years-old in 1941. That year wa.s an important one for Tommy! President Franklin p. Roosevelt was celebrating his sixtieth birthday, and inaugurating the March of Dimes Campaign for 1J41. A gigantic radio program was launched to commemorate both events. Tommy was chosen as the "typical" American boy and< along with other honors, was selected to emcee the show. It was one of the outstanding entertainment presentations ot the year. In one giant offering, the March of Dimes Drive kicked-off, the President's birthday was observed and Tommy was hailed as the "All-American Boy." Today, in Columbia Pictures' "Teen-Age Crime Wave," Tommy Cook is starring as the incurable juvenile delinquent! Columbia's terrible - teen-age terrorist of 1955 is none other than 1941's "typical" American Boy. » « * If this column seems even more disjointed than usual, you can blame it on nervousness and suspense. We've just returned from Republic Studios where R. G. (Buddy) Springsteen is directing "Shot In The Dark." We hasten to add that Mr Springsteen is not the cause of our .iitters. Marian Carr is the cai>=e of it all. Ordinarily. Marian create.-; a rather pleasant sort of net vousne.«s. The kind you gel from waiting an hour by a heavy sound-stage door, hoping you can open it for her.

Latin rhythm singer Abbe Lane plays a sultry screen villain for the first time in Columbia Pictures' action thriller, "Chicago Syndicate," also starring Dennis O'Xeefe and featuring Paul Stewart and Xavier Cugat and his orchestra at the Algona theater this Friday and Saturday. Miss Lane appears in "Chicago Syndicate" as Stewart's girl friend who shares with him the secrets of his ten billion dollar empire in crime. Mary Louise Valentine lady of the rails emerged from her synthetic reincarnation with a strictly British appearance but. basically, she's still the same old Emma. From beneath all the new trimming, comes her old, ftimiliar, asthmatic wheeze, without a single trace of British accent. All Movieland recently gathered in the smalJ chapel across from Hollywood Cemetery to pay their last respects to Billy Jones, veteran stunt man. States, extras, directors and stage-sweepers rubbed elbows as they crowded into the tiny chapel. Few men in Filmland have ever made, and retained the? friendship of as many studio folks as did Billy Jones-. Little Brother of the Great! St. Benedict By Mrs Philip Arndorfer leased from a movie prison.— And. right outside, the big gate, waiting for her, wa.s Tony Caruso with a backfield of villainous "toipedos." One look at Marian's welcoming committee ana you instinctively started counting the bars on the prison gate, just in case. To make matters worse, they whisked our little gal away in a big, black limousine before we could spoil a sound-take with a warning shout. * » » On top of this, they suddenly wrap up the Springsteen unit for the day and take the script away when they Jeave. Now we'J) have to wait for the picture':? release to find out what happened to that poor, sweet, kid! — They did leave behind them a copy of the company call-sheet, listing the cast members. Raymond Greenltaf. Margie Millar, John Hudson, Slim Pickens. Anthony Caruso, Morris Ankrum. John Gallaudc'., 'Mary Treen, Ralph Dumke, and Addison Richards have their names on that roster. One of them must know whether Marian gets away from the baddies in the final reel! • » • Emma has had her face lifted! And somehow she seems to look more youthful, by, many years. At least a score, or more! Too bad they couldn't rejuvenate her body, too. She wheezes a bit as she puffs her way around the M.G.M. lot while director Curtis Bernhardt directs her activities. But, as Emma's co-players. Leslie Caron. John Kerr, Sir Cedric Hardwicke, Taina Elg and Margalo Gilmore will have to admit, she gets around in lively fashion, considering her age. Emma is a little. 2-Class 2. oiv boiler, single-cylinder, locomotive born at the Baldwin Locomotive Works during the 1870's. For the past week, she's lu-en chugging in and out of an exact replica of London's terminal on the London and Sussex R. R. * * * Of course, it would never do to have a small, ancient, American engine racing in and out of a Londun station. Especially while under the watchful eyes of such paragons of authenticity as director Bernhardt and his assistant director, Bill Shanks. So Emma was given a bit of exterior revamping.
