"INSIDE "DETROIT 0 Pat O'Brien Dennis O'Koefe Behind The Movie Sets WITH BUDDY MASON Hollywood, Cal.—Ricou Browning? Certainly you know him! He's one of Hollywood's greatest scene stealers. —Ana, he doesn't even have to try! When Ricou steps into a scene you forget all about the other actors. He dominates the screen immediately. Yet, despite his compelling personality, you wouldn't recognize Urowning it you met him lace-to-facc. * * * Which brings up a delicate question. Who'd WANT to meet Kicou face-to-face in his studio makeup? We'd rather let our hair turn white in the good, old- fashioned way. It may take time, but it's a lot easier on the nervous system than letting Ricou give it the overnight treatment. Any sudden meeting with Mr Browning during his working hours is quite likely to scare the color out of your best toupee. To say nothing of making the worst creatures of your wildest nightmares look like Miss Universe contestants by comparison. « * * Although 'the name, Ricou Browning, may not ring any chimes of recognition, his screen name will strike a note of tam- iliarity. He's the fabulous Gill Man of the Universal-International "Creature" series! An expert underwater swimmer from Florida, Ricou dunks his well- Sanforized half-fish, hall-man <--n- semble in and out of gloomy lagoons in the interests of Art, Story and making your curly locks stand at attention. One peek at Ricou, in his little, damp playsuit, as he creeps up into the air to stand erect—and yoUr hair does thu same. « « « If you plan on seeing .U-I's "The Creature Walks Among Us"—take along a hammer and chisel! They'll come in handy to chip the icicles off your vertebrae. U-I should hold its "Creature" thriller premieres in the Alcoholic Ward of the Psychopathic Institute. While a personal apeparance by the Gill Man may not cure-'any inmates of the \ D. T.'s, it will make all those Cobras and Rattlers seem like friendly, cuddlesemc companions. "THE CREATURE WALKS AMONG US" is an apt title. But, if it gives the Gill Man any ideas that we'd enjoy the walk, he'll have to do a bit of walking through'a new, man-size hole in a theater wall to join us! * « * Josh Logan, famed stage-director of "South Pacific", "Mr Roberts," and "Picnic," had a picnic directing "Picnic" for the screen! While directing Columbia's film version, in which William Holden, "Rcmsom" At Algona Glenn Ford and Donna Reed portray the anquished parents whose son is kidnapped in "Ramson!" The griping M-G-M suspense-drama is based en the widely-discussed TV play "Fearful Decision," Iwice presented on the U.S. Steel Hour. "Ramson" plays next midweek, March 20-21-22 at the Algona theater. Rosalind Russell and lovely, little Kim Novak are starred, Josh found that film direction has many advantages over directing a stage play. —He soon discovered that by doing any wishful thinking aloud he'd start umpteen assistant directors to rubbing the- ''sinall-expensive-size" Aladdin's lamps. * <t * One night, as the staff was routining the next clay's work, on location in Kansas, he "wished there was some way that a high camera - platform could travel alongside a moving train and permit him to get u hiyh, overhead shot of Bill Holden as he hopped a freight-train." Next morning, Josh arrived a* the location to find that resourceful cinemat.ographer Jimmy Wong Howe was supervising a rigging job designed to aim his camera lens downward through the trap-door in the "floor"' of a waiting helicopter. * » * That did it! From then on. Josh Logan cultivated the habit of "thinking" at audible voice levels. It beat the old stage expedient of having two characters talk about an event you couldn't stage in a theater. VJ'hile checking freight-train schedules, he wondered (aloud, of course) how long he'd have to wait for another freight-train to pass in the event that he'd have to do retakes of Holden climbing aboard. The next day, producer Fred Kohlmnr lived up to his title lay producing a chartered freight, at no extra cost! Now! You get Power Steering on all new Ford Tricycle Tractors.

Then, during his big picnic scene, the sky sudden* ly darkened. "Fine!" groaned Josh, "All we need right new is a Kansas cyclons!" An assistant started to move away. Momentarily off-guard and startled, Logan promptly yelled, "No! NO! SON! — CANCEL THAT ORDER!" Whittemore Banker Was State Conference Head Whitlemore—Vic Perkins, local president of the Whittemore Farmers Stale Bank, and president of the Kossuth County Bankers Association, returned home from Des Moines, Monday night, where he conducted the 35th annual State Bankers Conference. Last week Sunday Mr Perkins gave a welcome address for the annual Iowa Junior Bankers association meeting and also was in charge of the conference The National President of the American Institute of Banking, Mr Bernard J. Hunt, addressed the group, as did many top men in the banking field. A very interesting address according to Mr Perkins, was the controversial speech by Mrs Virginia Bedell, attorney at Spirit Lake, who serves on the State Parole Board. It will be remembered that recently Mr Gordon Gainmack has been trying to get a notorious bank robber of the SIX WINNERS Be sure to read this page thoroughly and if you spot your name individually, you will receive free admittance to 'the suspense thriller, "Ramson", playing Mar. 20-22 at the Algona Theater.
