WHERE TO GO WHAT TO DO 2—Algona (Id.) Upper Des Moines Tuesday, January 31, 1956 Behind The Movie Sets WITH BUDDY MASON Hollywood, Calif. — We'd stack Brodcriek Crawford and Doug Kennedy up against ;my of thr old-time, early-west gunsling- crs and back 'cm to out draw the host of tin 1 lot: --- Of course, we're fairly safe in making such an assertion. Most of the men who helped populate the early West's "Boolhills" have long since ceased to be interested in disproving such claims! In fact, many of them didh't enjoy their reputations long enough to get a good start on a personal press-book. Gun fighting titles changed hands faster than :i two-dollar bill at I lie 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, the new Dcadeye Dick would discover that every man in the guzzling emporium had a twin brother. This always proved a trifle embarrassing if he had to defend his new title right away. Even when he beat his opponent to the draw, he invariably drew down on the ethereal "twin- brotht.r" while the real challenger used his vest buttons for clay pigeons. Ronald Gardner But, we digress.

A young army of experts can take bows right along with them. There's the wardrobe man who lies olT their holsters at just the proper height for a fast draw, the special-effects men who filed down the triggers until u sudden sneeze might touch olT the artillery, the property man who weakened the powder charge in the blanks to permit close-range fireworks and. last but far from least, the coach thai M-G-M has hired to teach Brod and Doug the gentle art of blast in}, the daylights through the otjier fellow's gizzard —- before lie can complete his draw! Mrs Gary McDonald All this preparation is being made in the interests of Arts and realism for a film tentatively titled "The Fastesl Gun Alive." In Ibis picture, Crawford and Kennedy stage the fastest bit of gun-, play to zip across a screen in some lime. Which is somewhat of an accomplishment in a community where six-gun coaches seem to be issued wilh every ten-gallon wardrobe-hat. We sincerely hope lhat this action wasn't too fast for the cameras. After all these long hours of practice, it would be a shame if the boys'had to go back and do their gunfighting over, once more, in front of a slow-motion camera. It would be ironic if, after perfecting the speediest ot draws, they had to learn to draw more slowly to make sure that the audience could see how fast they were. Cornelius Larson Director Russell Rouse, who directs this new Glenn Ford starrer, builds up suspense until even the extra players, blase vel- erans of scores of "epic" six-gun duels, seem to sense the electric tension that hovers over the gunfighters. Like Glenn Ford, Brod has his own gallery while working in close, individual shots. Th'.; younger players crowd the sidelines lo watch. And, they're never disappointed by either star. The Ford and Crawford artistry always affords lessons in practical histrionics that are of great value to any studenl of stagecraft. Don't be surprised if, in u few years, every film,you see will have at legist jono male actor whose mannerisms ""bear a startling resem- 'bJance to those of Glenn or Brod. Waller Pelerson Romance In Modern India Douglas Kennedy, with his years of fine performances, is an excellent easting choice for the highly 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 thai doparr from conventional theory to employ little personal tricks of effect, drawn from the years of experience. And, don'l forget the drama students a n d Little Theatre youngsters who'll sec this film on local screens. Who knows? "The Fastest Gun Alive' may set Stanislavsky back twenty years with the performances of Glenn Ford, Brod Crawford and Doug Kennedy! Paul L.
