WHERE TO GO WHAT TO DO Behind The Movie Sets WITH MASON Hollywood, Calif. — Don't be surprised if . Film Stars Shirley Jones and Barbara Ruick take along ''Camnfire Girls on their next Northern location I There's nothing like shivering in night dress-on the lawn of a Maine- cabin In the "wee-sma" hours tb convince a pair of amateur tiiider-tinkerers that they should'leave such chores to Indi- ,ans, veteran firebugs and the Campfire contingent. . "'•,*. . '•' • * It all: happened on location in Maine while 20th Century-Fox was filming Rodgers and Hammerstein's, ''Carousel." Retiring, one night, to their cabin at Outlook ^ Inn, Southport Island, the two-lovelies stepped into a cold, cheerless interior. Now, in Maine, when the frost is on the pump- Kiri, the defrosting job requires flame-throwers, when - it's "a trifle chilly," to the natives, that s the cue for visitors to burrow a deep hole in dead center of a feather mattress, take along survivor's rations and hibernate until the next "warin spell"' arrives. Perhaps it was the spacious fireplace that disarmed Shirley and Barbara. Or those "Winter Homelife in Maine" type of paintings seen in every art gallery. The girls didn't know that most of this ''fireplace art" originates in steaiM-heated Greenwich Village studios to which the artists have fled from Maine, just one jump ahead of chilblains. No one told them that the crackling fires were lit for modeling pur* poses only, by fingers thawed out far from the rigors of a "Down East Cold,Spell.", //> -SURF IV BALLROOM TWO GREAT ATTRACTIONS SUNDAY,'APRIL 29 PatBoone Top Male Vocalist of Records — TV Star of Godfrey TV — Radio Shows ,-Jl.t. r • KILLINGER'S " ORCHESTRA WED., MAY 2nd The' WalJz King — Wayne Recording — TV Star Top Favorite Band .With Dancers Reservations Now Available Both Dates TUESDAY Thru THURSDAY There, in front of the two girls, was 1 their .picturesque fireplace, complete with tinder, "matches and logs. .And, there on the wall was a "Winter Homelife in Maine" type of art calendar for a pattern,. All* the props 'for a cheerful, warming fir6. were assembled. All, that is, except a Special EffectS'Man to coax a fire to life.'V Naive'.and trusting, Shirley Jones and Barbara Ruick,. built a neat pyramid of tindei 1 and started on their first box ol matches.: Somehow, everything had worked more smoothly in that • dimly remembered, clothbound . edition of "The Pioneei Girls in Maine." . « • » At a stage bordering on iota', exasperation and just short ol complete numbness, the stubborn operation jelled. Perhaps ,the burnt match-stidks caught fire. At any rate, "Carousel's", famous f^mmes whooped with delight and retired to their bedroom to await the hard earned warmth. Half an'hour later, Miss Ruick awoke. to find smoke Drifting into, the room. Alarmed, she hastened to the living room omy to find it-filled with smoke. Rousing Miss Jones, both girls raced out into the open crying "FIRE!" *' ' ' • • * Until an emergency forces two nightie - clad beauties - in.- distress out into the night, it is difficult to conceive the true stature of the average male. Men' appeared from nowhere, spied the girls—and became heros on the spot. Willing rescuers became so numerous that they cluttered the premises. Somehow, the' sight of Miss Jones in/her flannelette night,gown and Miss Ruick in her modern "shortie" sleeping coat, as they shivered in the night air, brought out enough male protective instinct to cope with a major disaster. At the peak of confusion, when heroics were fast becoming a drug on the market, at least a dozen' of the hardier heros dashed into the smoke-filled cabin. There, they discovered that 'the damper had been accidentally closed. And just when all hands were primed lor deeds of derring- do! ..,*•« * After the cabin had been aired out , sufficiently by the frigid night air, the girls returned. On the' wall, "Winter Homelife in Maine" leered at them from its calendar in the deep-freeze atmosphere. Who knows? Perhaps they have Campfire Girls in Greenwich Village! !£•.so, Shirley Jones"''and Barbara mijclc have 'a suggestion for starting future fires. Why not gather up all copies of a certain type of calendar !!! M-G-M's Daring Drama of'The Buffalo Hunters-and The Captive Indian Beauty They Both Wanted!
