Behind The Movie Sets WITH BUDDY MASON The biggeil picture made in Hollywood for some time is a little, short subject. In terms of money, few studios could afford to use as many big names in a single picture. And oddly enough, this "shozt" was made on one of the smallest budgets known to Filmland. From stars to assistant directors, the cast and production staff donated their services. Stars of every religious faith outdid their very best to turn out a super-production for Father Keller s non-sectarian Christopher Movement. Names like Jack Benny, Ann Blyth, Bing Crosby, Dennis Day, Paul Douglas, Irene Dunne, William Holden, Bob Hope, Rochester (Eddie Anderson), Dinah Shore, and Loretta Young grace the unpaid cast. Leo McCarey, director of such pic- lures as "Going My Way" and 'Bells of St. Mary's", directed the production which was called "You Can Change the World". This same kind of picture is designed to stimulate right thinking people into the same kind of action. * * * Father Keller, by the way. played an important role in the story. He has an engaging personality and a charming mdnner. Without deliberately trying, the good father neatly swiped a few FULL-WIDTH FREEZER! It holds 27 pounds of frozen food!

To the surprise of Di rector McCarey, his cast had an other top-notch actor that he hadn't'counted on. » * * Such constructive efforts on the part of Hollywood citizens seldom rate more than a scant paragraph in the news. Bui let a former resident of Pumpkin Center work in two pictures, become affluent overnight and celebrate his unaccustomed prosperity in a binge, and he makes front page as a Hollywood character. * * * Thirty thousand people are directly employed in movie production. Another 20,000 people are directly employed in connection with picture making. To Hollywood family folks, having the spotlight turned on the relatively few of their less desireable residents is unfair. It is akin to publicizing only the people who go to jail in a town of 50,000. And don't tell me than any town in America with 50,000 could find it unnecessary to build a jail! * * * And speaking of jails — prison pictures are the delight of the Hollywood w nr d r o b e men.

A railway conductor wearing the wrong type of cap for the line on ' which he is supposed to be working would flood the studio mailbags with protests.

To say nothing of the gripes from regular railroaders. * « * Every movie courtroom scene s checked by a technical expert, usually an attorney.
