WHERE TO GO M| asm ga jam «• im «HH ' IWIgf ^ ww WJ1T TO 2-Algono (la.) Upper Des Moines Tuesday, February 21, 1956' James R. Vipond Movie Sets iV'iVi .••,:••['{ WTTH • ' ' V BUDDY MASON Hollywood, Calif. — A current cycle of cyclonic gun-fanning has fostered a fusillade of fantastic fanfare about the pistol-producing prowess • and pistol-packing proclivities of parties participating in movie duels. Speedy draws hold the spotlight at the 1 moment. Six-gun coaches hold a strong lead over six-horse stage-coachcu and even dramatic coaches at the latest; quotations and shpotin' irons''were going into a- spin on every movie lot at closing time. Speed-championship claims were sky-high with more takers than delivery warranted. . ,;.. V * . * Hugh O'Brian swears he can unlimber a six-gun in two tenths of a secohd, while Audie Murphy lays claim to faster time. Clint Walker, ex-Nevada 'deputy sheriff- says the only time tjial counts lies between "reachin 1 arid hittin'," adding, in a slow drawl, "Speed, only counts when YOU don't miss!" Actually, a Finnish lad named Arvo Ojala, who coaches stars in the art of gun-slinging, draws- fires-and hits a man-size target up to 25 feet away in ONE SIXTH • OF' A SECOND, while Ronald Sabin We Want Your Old Unsafe Tires! ,.'; 6/G TRADE-IN ALLOWANCE \ NOW ON TH/S NEJrV, EXTRA-SAFE TUBELESS TIRE!

Vvle hate to say anything to remind you that (he sprinkling of white under your fedora isn't dandruff, Pal, but this year they , stopped chasing the kid away frorri the polls at 'election time! — What's more, if Claude Jr. rode a motorcycle under a clothesline -that was strung six- feet, two inches off the ground, HIS next fedora could have a crown an inch short&r and .a flat top! Perhaps Claude's . stratospheric 6'3" was waiting for Cine- mascope so that the screen would be big enough to hold all four dimensions of the new-economy- size "Yearling!" We still think Walt Disney's Cinemascope cameras had to use wide-angle lenses to get both Claude AND a locomotive on the ;ame screen. Otherwise, Disney's "Great Locomotive Chase" :itle would boil down to "The Great Yearling Chase!"—AncU- you can't just leave star3 like Fess Parker, Jeff Hunter, and TWO puffing locomotives lying around on a cutting room floor. FOUR sizzling stars constitutes a fire hazard in Burbank! ; V * * ' • ' What we started to say, before Parker, Hunter, "The, Texas" and-"The' General'! derailed our train of thought was, that you can't tell the "Yearling" from the other actors without a program and, after filming a high-budget locomotive thriller in Cinema- scope and Technicolor, who can afford programs? Anyway, we'll give you 8 to 5 that the first man to win the Congressional Medal of Honor in Walt Disney's Civil War spy thriUer r diller, "The Great Locomotive' Chase," is "The Yearling" we iclockedjin his first start, Claude Jarman,' Jr.— That .is, if the film editor doesn't double-cross us and ring in a closeup of Mickey Mouse taking three paces forward after the citation is read! » » » Another grown up youngster you'll want to see, is Alan Ladd's son, Laddie, making it a pair^of Ladds who'll appear in Wai'aer Bros' -"Santiago."
