WHERE (lo.) Upper Dei Molnii Tuesday, January Si, I95o Behind The Movie Sets WITH BODDV MASON Hollywood, Calif. — We'd stack Broderiek Crawford anc Doug Kennedy up against any'of Hhe old-time, early-west-gunsling- ,'ers and back 'em to outdraw the best of the lot! — Of course. 'We're fairly safe in making such an assertion. Most of the men .who helped populate the early .West's- "Boothills" have long ^'since ceased to be interested in 'disproving such claims! ; In, fact,, many of them didn't ^enjby their reputations long • enough to get n good start on a .personal press-book. Gunfight• ing. .titles changed hands faster ;than;a two-dollar bill at the Las •:-Vegas'craps tables. The new six',gun champ generally celebrated 'by rinsing the gunsmoke out of his mouth with a little of the •stuff that makes jack-rabbits kick , side-winders out of their paths. John Haag In those days, the Grade-A ; mountain dew ' had authority ' After two or' three drinks, th • new Deadeye Dick would discover that every man in the guz zling emporium had. a twin /brother. This always proved a trifle embarrassing if he hud to defend his new title right away • Even when he beat his opponent to the draw, he invariably dre\\ " down on the ethereal "tvvin- , brother" while the real challenge! used his vest buttons for claj • ; pigeons. ford and Doug Kennedy ar speedballs when urilimberin frontier hardware, it's no acci dent. A young arrny of expert can .take bows right along will them. There's the wardrobe mai who ties oil their holsters at jus the proper height for a fast draw the special-effects men who filet down the .triggers dntil a suddei sneeze might touch off the ar tillery, the. property man wht weakened the powder charge ii the blanks to permit close-range fireworks and, last but far frun least, the coach that M-G-M ha: hired to teach Brod and Doug the gentle art of blasting the daylights through the other fellow's gizzard — before he can complete his draw!

TUES., FEB. 14 Sweetheart Ball JULES HERMAN & ORCH. Featuring The Four Lads All this preparation is being made in the interests of Arts and realism for a film tentatively titled "The Fastest Gun Alive." In this picture, Crawford and Kennedy stage the fastest bit of gun- Dlay to zip across a screen in some time. Which is somewhat )f an accomplishment in a com- nunily where six-gun coaches seem to be issued with every en-gallon wardrobe-hat. We since: e'y hope that this action wasn't too fast for the cameras. After all these long hours of >ractiee, it would be a shame i he boys had to go back and do their gunfighting over, onct more, in front of a slow-motioi: camera. It would be ironic if after perfecting the speediest ui draws, they had to learn to draw more slowly to make sure that the audience could see how fust they were. Romance In Modern India Cornelius Larson Director Russell Rouse, who directs this new' Glenn Ford starrer, builds up suspense until even the extra players, blase veterans of scores of "epic" six-gun duels, seem to sense the electric ension that hovers over the gun- "ighters. Like Glenn Ford, Brod has his own gallery while working in 'lose, individual shots. Tlvj younger'players crowd the side- ines to watch. And, they're nev- r disappointed by either star, "he Ford and Crawford artistry Iways affords lessons in practical listrionics that are of great value o any student of stagecraft. Don't )e surprised if, in a few years, very film you see will have at east _pne male actor .whose nian- ier*sm's- : beSr a startling resem- ilance to those of Glenn or Brod. LEAP YEAR BANCROFT WED., FEB. 8 Last Dance Before Lent For Booths—Call 4101 Waller Peterson Douglas Kennedy, with his ears of fine performances, is an xcellent casting choice for the ighly dramatic gun-duel sequence with Brod. Between Crawford's offbeat characterization of the cold-blooded killer and Kennedy's death scene, the young Thespians who watched were given a rare treat. They were privileged to see practical workaday histrionics that depar: from conventional theory to employ little personal tricks of effect, drawn from the years of experience. And, don't forget the drama students a n cl Little Theatre youngsters who'll see this film on local screens. Who knows?
