Behind the 4t?b£»Y MASON _ R.K 0'g new. management, lias swept all mothballs -from the corners of its huga ' stages. More important, they've- launched an Impressive production, pfogfam and have turned the almost idle lot into a beehive' of activity. At the end of February,. R.K.O. started to shift Into high gear, with t\$o companies shooting, two'aboul to start-'arid two in preparation. The resumption of activity on this .lot '.will add ,a c6nsiderable amourit $1 work for Hollywood's, actbrg and technicians. '; • * » * Particularly Woi'ih noting is the fact-that the-caliber of films' now Shooting, "and being readied, carry the stamp or' "big- 'time." ; With' one more major studio turning out • big pictures) another: payroll is added-to the industry. -^Hollywood studio workers ;.are\ hopefully looking forward io have- some of the slack taken ,,'tip in the unemploy* meht Situation. s Filrrilartd's artisans view the parade ,6f itop creative personnel being stefldily, acquired-as an encouraging* ' Indication of an upsurge^ 1 in employment. R.K.O. 'has maj6r,-lot shooting facilities. A bodm in Class A production at this plant Will put many timecards back in the rack. . •' • • . » - * Before H.K.O. changed hands, Howard Hughes made "The Con- queror.-'VDlck Powell was chosen to prbdiice and direct this'"siiper,- dooper" Spectacular. All Hollywood agreed. that Dick was an exceptionally ..versatile creative talent. However, with typical skepticism, ' some of the cynics felt that he was not yet ready to take over a venture of this ' magnitude. —If ever a group oi floubters were : converted the hard-way, it was this contingent of sideline quarterbacks. It's bad enough to fall heir to n dunce-cap without being forcea to publicly admit that yaur head is just the!proper shape to fit , into a pointed fedora! * • « W Dick Powell gathered up the reins of. this multi-milli6n-dollar production with the easy assurance of a man accustomed to handling such Herculean chores with great frequency. . What's more, when Dick wag finished showing the world what a man of true creative bent could iaccom- plish with a signed check having ho specified amount—he had booted,in a winner that .will go down in: box-office history. -The, conservative Walter ---Branson, R.K.O/sWice" President in Qharge of World Wide Distribution, has estimated a world gross of BETTER than $17,000,000 for "The Conqueror!" ..»•*.-» Mervin Houser, new director pt publicity for R.K.O., moved in just in time to face the challenge 16 end all challenges. What can even a top publicist and his staff use for laudatory expletives when' a super - Spectacular ACTUALLY makes the use of a word like "colossal" almost a disparaging description? * ", * All of which may cause you to suspect that a triumphant Mr Powell promptly raced down to stand in line wherever laurel- Wreaths currently are being issued. If so, you dqn't know your dyed-in-the-wool creative lads. Instead of taking a nice, long rest, Dick rushed back to a telefilm venture he's interested in. The big picture assignment had been a sort of vacation! A "breather" from the problems oi presenting story ideas on film so cleverly that the vibwei would never be aware of the fact that they had to be skillfully fitted to. the 'limits of a telefilm budget! * * * We once observed lhat ihere is a certain type of genius that thrives on adversity. Writers who turn out great stories in garrets- hungry composers. Men who create best when lashed by necessity. —Yt-t, often lose the inspired spark when overtaken by prosperity. Unlike their brother creators whose skills increase as the quality of their tools-of-craft improves. — Who can -attempt to ( classify Dick Powell's artistry? He materializes dreams with unlimited resources—or practically n o n e. And, oddly enough, the illusions born of his craftsmanship are such fascinating entertainment that, ilater, you can't recall exactly what did go into their construction!
