WHERE TO GO Behind The Movie Sets WITH BUDDY MASON Hollywood, Calif— We've- just spent the better part of a week watching Glenn Ford play a highly dramatic sequence in M-G-M-'s "Fearful Decision. 1 ' Your Hollywood errand-boy has always considered Glenn Ford to bo a fine actor but. after watching Glenn play the anguished father of a kidnapped boy for this film we'll revise our former csti- mate. He's a GREAT actor! Mrs H. H. Lindeman Under the direction of Alex Segal, whose creative talents un- Geraldine McKean fold with a painstaking thoroughness that insists on perfection, Glenn is positively magnificent. With each rehearsal or take, the Ford-Segal team seemed to add new meaning and depth of feeling to situations. Like a pair of master diamond cutters, turning a stone at various angles to the light in an effort to determine how best to cut it for a maximum of brilliance. As each new facet reflects a sparkling, beauty, it suggests the placement of future cuts. It's the slow, precise shaping that produces a perfect gem. —-Only a major lot of M-G-M's stature could afford a creative tailoring of this magnitude. Could forgft schedule and budget while master craftsmen trimmed—and polished—and buffed with the maddening slowness of the true pet-fectionist. However, M-G-M will be well compensated for the time consumed in shaping up each scene until it sparkles. We PEANUT DAY I DE BOER HARDWARE WESLEY, IA.

Each time, new shades of meaning and emphasis were added. We wouldn't miss seeing "Fearful Decision" under any circumstances! Ernest Kramer —And, when a water-boy, who hasn't missed a game in 35 years, looks forward to buying a choice seat in the stadium, you can safely bet that he's not planning on witnessing a run-of-the-mill football game! • * * Perhaps the best trained lion used in pictures today is Jackie t pel and companion of trainer Melvin Coontz. Yes! We said "pet and companion", for Coontz and Jackie are seldom apart. •— When at home, at the World Jungle Compound on Ventura Blvd. near Thousand Oaks, Jackie follows Mel around like a well- trained dog. He's miserable whenever Coontz has to be away for any length of time and mopes in abject despair until they're together, again. Andrew Shell Many of the big cats develop a deep affection for their trainers. In fact, some of the "wildest" appearing cats in a wild-animal act are really the "best workers." They frequently have to be trained to make wild passes at their beloved "bosses" and to snarl nastily when cued. According to the lads who put them through their paces, the really bad fellows are the quiet ones. They're never allowed to make a close swipe at a trainer. • • • It's surprising thai more of the cats don't turn bad. When a litter is very young, it represents a large investment. Trainers' wives carefully nurse them through cub ailments. They're treated exactly like kittens. Everyone pets and cuddles them and they frequently have the run of a trainer's house. Like domestic pets, they become a part of the family. —Then comes a day when "kitty" gets so big she can't swap ends without knocking over the furniture. Slip's promptly banished to an outside cage. Overnight, she ceases to be a family pet and suddenly is regarded as a wild-animal. Worse, a caged animal! Some of the cats grieve, act bewildered or sulk for a time but they eventually adjust themselves to the changed relationship. Others never quite forgive the whole two-legged tribe. These are the ones to watch! In Jackie's case, he's always been treated as a pet. That's why he works so well, even with, strangers, and is always in great demand for movie use. We only hope that no one ever tells him he's not a dog. It would undoubtedly break Jackie's heart!
