The iport of ex-kings is girl-watching, at iMst as played by Forouk (lower left corner). Farouk wants to rccapluve a tatter o{ the past by effecting a reconciliation with Narriman. The possibility is enhanced by her financial plight. Her friends say that since they've been on the outs, she's been receiving only $40 a week from the ex-king. In the meantime, he has had to content himself with the on-again-ofT-again aiTcctions of striking cx-Naplcs beauty queen Irma Cappece Minutolo. She coyly claims she's "not the mari"ying liind," but the romance has smoldered since shortly after Farouk's rule. If Irma should decide to wed the unpopular ex-king one day, she won't be marrying a )>aupcr despite Farouk's lament that he is destitute. "When I loft Alexandria." he mourned, "I had only the change in my pockets. My situation is extremely critical." The truth is that the "change in his pockets" probably amounted to .several millions of dollars which he prudently has stashed in European banks. When he sailed into Capri on his exile voyage (leaving behind a pyramidful of unpaid bills, including his income tax), his arrival was scarcely less spectacular than his honeymoon trip a few years earlier. His quarters in the sumptuous Eden Paradiso Hotel consisted of the entire third floor; 27 rooms. 15 baths, and a private dining room and elevator. Farouk has scaled down his living .somewhat since then, probably more because he feels he is regarded as a clown than because of any Fmanciai stress. There is nothing to indicate that he'll be tapping his benefactor. Rainier, for unemployment insurance—though he once asked amused newsmen if they knew where he might find a job. Farouk, whose future was once so bright, now is happy to settle for peace and quiet since no one wants to share his indiscretions any more. "The greatest kindness that can be done to me," he sighs, "would be to accept me as an ordinary, simple person." Erased by years of prodigious dissipation are the lofty ideals and ambitions of a slim, handsome hoy who ascended to the throne at 16. The .same people who rejoiced at his coronation, danced with joy in the streets of Alexandria when a ileshy caricature of that ingenuous boy abdicated 16 years later. Ailection and admiration, which Farouk had not sought as a youth, are commodities he is fmding his money can't buy for him today. name, to become Shelley Winters. Jeanette Morrison's favorite.actress was Vivien Leigh—and out came Janet Leigh. Natasha turned into Natalie and Gurdin gave way to director Sam Wood's last name to give the teen-agers the ever-popular Natalie Wood. Occasionally a name is changed more than once. Brooklyn-bom Bernard Schwartz grew so fond of Anthony Adverse, hero of a popular historical novel, that he adopted the name till Universal- International changed it to Anthony CurtLs. The fans' tremendous response addressed to just "Tony" Curtis made the studio change his name again. Issur Danielovitch shortened his name to Isidor Demsky, but people still stumbled over it So he decided on Douglas. Friends talked him into an equally Scotch-Irish sounding first name, making it Kirk Douglas. Often, confusion results when players' names are changed. When John Smith, born Robert Van Ordcn and star of NBC's new "Laramie" TV scries, didn't respond after being called several times during his first film, the assistant director exploded: "Can't you remember your own name?" Replied John with a good-natured grin, "It isn't easy when you change it at 21!" MittiOerbar Mitzi Gaynor Daniel Kominsky Danny Kaye iA r«milv WMkiy, JMIV M.
