WHERE TO GO WHAT TO DO Behind The Movie Sets WITH BUDDY MASON Hollywood, Calif.— "You have to master mental telepathy to become a big-timer in this mixed- up game!" The young speaker we're quoting made this remark shortly before leaving the film industry "forever!" It is easy to understand why Hie youngster actually believed his statement to be true. On a big-budget picture it always seems as though everyone is responding to the unspoken PLANTATION BALLROOM WHITTEMORE, IOWA Friday, May 11 Square Dance Lessons .

It's the trademark of the expert, the person so thoroughly familiar with every phase of his work that any slight movement, or change of pace by another, calls for but one coordinating action from a teammate. Years of experience have made the responding move an automatic reaction. * * * It's th% accumulated skill and know-how acquired by constant application and team-work. The split-second, decisive play in a big-league ball game, when mind and muscle whip into dovetailed thought and execution. When every player does exactly the proper thing without pausing to think. Later, veteran players, at a loss to explain how they knew what was coming, will take refuge in a vague, "Guess I just sensed it!" this was brought to mind during a recent visit on Stage No. 11 at R.K.O. Studio, where the very versatile Fritz Lang was directing Joan Fontaine and Dana Andrews >n "Beyond A Reasonable Doubt" for producer Bert Friedlob. Difficult scenes were being shot with a -seeming smoothness and ease only attained by a company of proud professionals, dedicated to their art. » * * An excellent cast that included Barbara Nichols, Arthur Franz, Robin Raymond, Sidney Blackmer, Phillip Bourneuf, William Leicester, Sheppard Strudwick and Rusty Lane buzzed with excitement between scenes. And what do you think was the topic of their animated conversation" It was WORK! Simply WORK! All hands were gleefully discussing a forthcoming straw-hat theatre venture to open its first summer stock season next June 4th at the little Mill Creek Theatre of Hinsdale, III.—The incorporation papers list the stock company officers as: Sidney Blackmer, President: Ruth Burch, Vice President: Robert Gist, Treasurer; and Fayc Roope.

IOWA FRI., MAY lllh KENNY HOFER And His Midweslerners Blackmer were busy lining up top Hollywood names and plays. The lovely, talented, darling of newspapermen, gracious Joan Fontaine, will team with Blackmer in "Kind Sir." Paul Douglas and Jan Sterling will star in "Born Yesterday." Dana Andrews is scheduled for "The Glass Menagerie." * * * These celebrated Stars were looking forward to a season of hard work, under difficult staging conditions with the eagerness ol children preparing for a picnic. It's this enthusiasm for their chosen profession that makes big-timers GREAT! These Stars are truly great because they continually polish their talents and always keep a feather-edge on their skills. Thrilled over this venture of tomorrow, they were giving inspired performances today in "Beyond A Reasonable Doubt." t * * Bert Friedlob's ability to keenly .judge capabilities extends beyond the cast, right down the line through staff men like the'talented director. Fritz Lang; production wizard Maurcy SUCHS, camera-artist William Snyder arid the affable assislant-dircc- tor Maxwell Henry. And. it pays off! If the complicated businc/s of production moves with clockwork precision and efficiency, it isn't due to mental telepathy. The credit goes to the talented, experienced, master - craftsmen .-•elected by Bert Frifdlob to staff liis cast ancl crew. When Bert gambles a million or two, it won't be staked on second-best horses! Hi Jinks * * * * Devoted to "Behind The Scenes" Items From Algona High School.
