WHERE TO GO (to.) Upper Des Moines Tuesday, February 7, 1956 Behind The Movie Sets WITH BUDDY MASON Hollywood, Calif. — There's a fair size boom going on in Molly- wood's "breakaway" market at tha moment! Chairs, tailored to break apart when bounced -off an actor's bald-spot; bottles that part the hair with a minimum of damage and all the yucca, and rubber, weapons that are available seem to be back in circulation once more. And they all appear to be working on the "Magnificent Roughnecks" unit. * * * Mrs John Seefeld Perhaps things were getting a little tame around the Allied Artists lot. At any rate, producer Herman Cohen and director Sherman A. Rose put their heads together and decided to do a story called "The Magnificent Roughnecks." That ~\n itself, is a good start toward inciting enough mayhem to break up a sizeable amount of monotony. Even Hie title suggests lovely social possibilities None of these snooty, private brawl epics. Just a nice, freewheeling Donnybix'ok. with all hands welcome and no holds barred. Just a friendly affair that anyone can step into. And, this story of the happv- go-lucky, footloose and far.t- spending oil boomers lives up to the possibilities of action implied by its name. After deciding on story, the Messrs. Cohen nnd Rose started casting about for a cast that wouldn't mind being cast about. And. we mean SPECIAL SCHOOL MATINEE WEDNESDAY - 4:00 P.M.

Whal s more, these lads both like a little action, are more or less evenly matched and don't :=t«p short in the middle of a scene when one of Iherfi accidentally stops a hay-maker with his whiskers. Harlan Haas So much for iho' fightin', feud- in 1 Carsons and Healys. Sherman Rose now had his story- rivals who peeled off their jaek- ctr. at mere sight of each other. Now to choose up sides. Dynamite is only as good as its fuse. Mickey Rooney was hiivd, i&sued elbow and knee pads together with a script, and became Jack Carson's croney. As Croney Rooney can only stir up just so much mischief at one time, two beautiful gals now joined the act. Harold Von Bank Midnight Show Nancy Gates and Jeff Donnell are a pair of lovlies well worth fighting for. Willis Bouchey, Eric Feldary, Alan Wells, Frank Gerstle. Joe Locke and Larry Can- then join this select bevy of batter-and-yegg men. Roughly, the boys choose up sides and the battle is on. And, "roughly" turns out to be the right word after all.

SIX WINNERS Be sure to read this page thoroughly and if you spot your name individually, you- will receive free admittance to the lop-hit movie, "The Court Martial of Billy Mitchell," playing Sunday and Monday at the Algona Thea- ier. Just give your name at" the box office.-. Oh! Yes! There's more to the screenplay than a running series of battles — but that's- like taking a good book with you to a Championship Fight. The story builds up interest in the next round and gives the gals a chance, to turn in a pair of fine acting chores. We suppose that this gives Jack, Mickey and Myron enough time to catch up with a second-wind, now and then. What's more, it lets the prop men stack fresh breakaways in handy places. Also, it gives assistant dircetoi Howard Joslin a chance to tabu- '...,t the casurtti'es • among ' his swum 1 characters and ' synd out Cut rL'j'l.'iLein 1 .':;'..;. married to Joseph Fourage, son of Phillip Fourage of Liyermore at St Mary's Church'in llumboldt, Feb. 7.

The'story's there— if you like a rollicking tale with a thousand laughs taking up time that could be devoted to more, and slap-happier, fisticuffs, but that's a case of every man to his own dish! With heavies ricocheting off the bric-a-brac like hail rattling off a tin ear, and action exploding all over the joint, WHO CARES WHY?
