MODEL'S Kimrock Chalet Lake of the Flaming Torch Lac du Flombcau, Wisconsin—54538 HOLLYWOOD —(^)—Middle-aged music fans can enjoy a nostalgic experience at the Cocoanut Grove these nights. Playing melodic piano on the bandstand, just as his daddy did before him, is young Peter Duchin. As he lilts through Chopin's Nocturne in E Flat, listeners can close their eyes and picture the t a 11, patrician-looking Eddy Duchin, star of a gentler era in popular music. Unlike some second-generation performers, Peter Duchin makes no effort to escape from the image of his famous sire. Some of his arrangements are the same as those of the elder Duchin. The Watusi, Too But Peter aims to please the young crowd, too, and his band can beat out a Watusi. A graduate of Yale and the U.S. Army, he has applied modern methods to the long- ailing band business, and he just might be able to help bring it back to health. Duchin, 27 and with dashing good looks, explained how his enterprise has grown since his band debut less than three years ago: "I found I was gelling more bookings than I could handle, and many of them would be for one night a long distance away. It wouldn't have been economical to transport the orchestra that far for a one- night engagement. "In the old days, MCA would book most of the orchestras, and thus arrange tours which provided many dates on the same route. There is no agency to do that now. So I contacted booking agents in 23 locations and made them franchise holders of Peter Duchin Orchestras, Inc. "Now, when I have a date AP Wliepholo ^ GRAND OPENING FRIDAY-JULY 2 ^MR.

Bears Famous Name . . . in a place like Florida, I notify our franchise agents, who make other dates at the same time so it is practical to transport the musicians." The enterprise has grown so that it books not only the Peter Duchin Orchestra but a half-dozen others as well. "I have the distinct feeling that bands are coming back," said Duchin. "I just made a tour through the south, and something happened that I hadn't seen before. The people crowded around the bandstand just to watch as we played. You know, the way they used to do in the era of the big bands." Carried Music "I carried music for dad when he toured with his band," he said. That exposure was enough to convince him that he wanted to follow his father's line of work. The conviction grew at Yale, where he led his own combo, and in the Army, where he headed a band in Panama. In 1962, he made his debut at the St. Regis Hotel in New York and promptly became the pianist laureate of high society. He seems firmly entrenched in that position. Such is the demand for him to play at coming-out parties that he has already been booked for four such affairs in 1970. By Dick Kleiner HOLLYWOOD -- (NEA) — Pat O'Brien gets a kick out of telling the story of the first time he saw his grandson, an- o t h er'Patrlck O'Brien. P a t's son was In the Air Force, s t a- 11 o n e d In France, when he married a French girl and when his son was born. It wasn't until the child was two that the family flew to Virginia, and the proud grandfather was there to meet the plane. "I saw this kid get off the plane,'' Pat says, "and the map of Ireland was all over his face. I yelled to him, and he came running over to me. He threw his arms around me and he said, 'Grandpere.' Can you beat that—Pat O'Brien calling Pat O'Brien grand­ pere?" Speaking of acting, O'Brien says, "Oh, I still love it, of course, but it isn't quite the fun it used to be. When was at Warners—with Bogart and Cagney and McHugh and those guys—we had what amounted to a slock company. We worked six days a week and sometimes even on Sunday, but it was always fun." He doesn't work that hard now. He hasn't made a feature since "The Last Hurrah," but he does a lot of television, has worked up a successful nightclub act ("I 'm the Irish Myron Cohen"), does stock with his wife and wrote a book, "The Wind at My Back," which has done so well the publisher wants another one. One disappointment—none of his four children wanted a show business career. One son is making a life in the Air Force and the other is studying foreign service in college. One daughter is married to a teacher and the other is going to be a nun. But there is still hope—he has six grandchildren so far. THE PSYCHIC*STARS: One of Chad Everett's good friends was an actor named Tom Gilson who was killed in an accident. Some months later, Chad had three friends in for dinner. Afterwards, they were sitting around, exchanging shop talk, when one of the guests said, "Where did that fellow go, who was standing by the sofa?" They had all, it turned out, been aware that a fifth person had been in the room but had gone. Only Chad and Greg Morris recognized the uninvited guest as Tom Gilson. The other two had seen someone, but hadn't recognized him. But they hadn't known Tom. * * * WATCH FOR a cartoon feature, built around the Inspector Clouseau character of "The Pink Panther" and "A Shot in the Dark." If they can clear the name, DePatie-Fre- leng will make it. . . . Raquel Welch is one of those all- American girls—her ancestry is S p a n i s h - Irish - English- French-German. A SHORT* LESSON in movie economics from Eddie Albert— "I can't keep any money when I make a feature film. Suppose I got a part in a picture being shot in France. It might last three months. I'd want my family to be with me for that length of time and it would cost, say, $8,000 to have them there. To do a picture and make back that $8,000, I'd have to make around $80,000, and very few pictures pay that. Even if I got one, I wouldn't be able to save anything. It just docfln't pay." And you thought you had troubles. SERGIO *vkNTONh who has a budding U, S. film career since working with Doris Day In "Do Not Disturb," says this won't help his Italian career at all. "Italian directors," he says, "are very funny, very jealous. It's hard to tell how the public will react, but 1 know how the directors will react—they'll think I betrayed them." DIRECTOR *EARL Bellamy is a Hollywood freak — he started as a messenger boy at Columbia in 1935. And he worked his way up in a profession where most directors are either ex-actors, ex-writ ers or somebody's brother-in- law. Bellamy went from messenger boy to clerk to second assistant director to first assistant and now he's one of Universal's ace directors. He's handled some 550 television shows and eight feature films —"Incident at Phantom Hill" and "Fluffy" were his last two, with "Gunpoint" about to start. "Gunpoint," with Audie Murphy, will have a 12-day shooting schedule. "We can still make 'em fast," Bellamy says. "Television is fast, but people sometimes forget that movies can be fast, too. Remember the old quickie westerns? Used to turn 'em out in six- seven days. That's what it takes to shoot a 60-minute television show now. And those westerns ran l '/4 to V/2 hours long."

It's a good question, especially when you're wondering why Tammy Grimes hasn't made a movie yet. She doesn't know. Mention "The Unsinkable Molly Brown," which she should have made, and she just gives a weary little laugh but doesn't say a word. The rumors have it that she doesn't photograph well, but I think nobody's tried very hard. She is actually quite pretty — and she looks, up close, like a genteel Kim Novak — and her coloring is exquisite. The desire is there, too. "Yes," she says, "I'd like to make a movie. Especially a western. I adore westerns." O.K., producers. Put Tammy Grimes in a western and be a hero. You'll also be very smart. WE'RE A*NATION of ama teur doctors, that's what we are. And Patty Duke is currently the coast-to-coast patient. As soon as word got around that she had sprained her ankle during the filming of "Billie," her fans deluged her with home remedies. From Mobile, Ala., came the suggestion that she should immerse her foot in sheep dip three times a day. From Jonesboro, Ark., came a letter advising her to massage it with crankcase oil. She even got a telegram, from a Boston, Mass., expert — the prescription was a drink concocted of goat's milk, spinach juice and yogurt which would unsprain her ankle in six hours. "I'd rather go through life imping," said Patty, "than swallow that." HOLLYWOOD — (/P) — No^ rest for John Wayne.
