WHERE TO GO WHAT TO DO Behind The Movie Sets WITH BUDDY MASON Hollywood, Calif. — World's Championships are changing hands at a furious rate on Stage No. 30 at Columbia's Back-ranch, these days!—However, little or no physical damage is in evidence for both the contenders-and ex- champs are merely rehashing fambus championship bouts be- 'tween scenes. If fight night at the Hollywood Legion Stadium, finds many of the ex-ring idols missing from their regular seats, there is no cause for alarm. In all probability, director Mark Robson is working them' late on Humphrey Bogart's new picture, "The Harder They Fall." And, no one can { deny that the boys are enjoying every minute of the job. Herman Warmbier Past and present champs wan. der in and out of the huge stage all day, "cutting up touches" with "Bogey" and each other. In fact, so' many of the boys "just happen to drop by" that first assistant-director Milton Feldman has to sort out his hired pugilists from the visitors before every "take."—Most of the local boxers have dropped around, (if you'll pardon the expression), to size up the stratospheric Mike Lane." Mike is the towering young giant who, plays "El Toro," a South American heavyweight who, oddly, reminds us of both Firpo and Camera. Bernard Zellar The jovial Max'Baeri as 'usual, manages to .keep all hands entertained between camera setups with anecdotes and ; a ; running fire of hep patter. Offstage, as well' as 6n, Baer is" a 'firie entertainer. One of his favorite yarns concerns his first visit to New York. If you can picture the very sophisticated Baer of today as a "native country b6y, with good championship possibilities," —that's the way he describes CHILDREN'S DANCING LESSONS Ballet — Tap — Modern Starting Sat.

Everyone had a "big deal" to offer, and papers to sign, When someone finally straightened out Baer's affairs, he claims that he found he'd sold 110% ol Max Baer! Nearly every promoter in town owned a. "piece" of the coming Champ! ~ Adda M. Price Besides "Bogey" and Max the fine cast includes Rod Steiger, Jan Sterling, Mike Lane, Jersey Joe Walcott, Carlos Montalban, Harold Stone, Felicio Orlandi, Nehemiah Persoff, Herbie Faye, Edward Andrews, Vinny De Carlo, Tommy Herman, Pat Comiskey, Rusty Lane, Val Av-. ery, Jack Albertson, Mark Scott, Joanne Rio, Julie Benedict and Pat Dane. Among the many timekeepers, seconds, handlers, sports figures and other minor "bits"'in the picture, we find names like Phil Bloom, Joe Glick and "Kid" Wilson. Johnny Indrisano is playing one of the 'referees as well as being technical director of the fight sequences. Helen Scott Producer Philip Yordan and "Bogey" are having a glorious tittle. In fact, every dyed-in- the-wool fight enthusiast on the set is enjoying a sports-fan's holiday. Even lovely Jan Sterling, who may ndt understand much of th'e ring jargon, has a pleasant time on this 'picture. Where else could a beautiful gal have this many be-muscled ring heros jump to open stage-doors and bring her glasses of water? When Jan goes to her dressing- room—or returns—a few score of husky males do a synchronized eyes-right; or eyes-left! It reminds you of a tennis match as their heads turn In unison. Chester Harmon And, what a spot for a sports reporter who.has. a few forgotten dates, or facts not listed in sports records, that he'd like to run down. This is the time and place to get his facts ! authenticated. There's just one catch!—With all the wealth of interesting reminiscence and anecdotal material that he'd be trying to store away in his memory, how could he reacall the elusive data be needed? It would simply have to remain "elusive!" LuVerne, Titonka Share Twin Bill LuVerne and Titonka shared a basketball doubleheader at Lu- Verne, Jan. 3 as the home boys took a 72-56 verdict after the Indian girls annexed the opener, 54-47. . Titonka led ' throughout the girls game, which was close all the way. Hipp got '27 points, Ullmann 14 and Bess 13 for the winners, while Patterson notched 31 for LuVerne. Titonka grabbed a 19-13 lead in the first period of the boys contest, but trailed at the half, 48-34, as LuVerno's hot-shots couldn't miss during the second period. Joe Henderson got 25, Stripling 25 and Baker 18 points for Lu- Verne, while Sathoff got 27 for the losers.
