But it would have to be a picture vital and interesting enough to make people want to see it. Otherwise, it would be shown only in church basements." Brando, who has played everything from a rebellious longshoreman to Napoleon, has the role of a wandering guitarist in his 13th film, "The Fugitive Kind," co-starring Anna Magn^ni and Joanne Woodward. In it he trades his famed sweatshirt for a snakeskin Jacket. Marlon, who has trimmed down 15 pounds on a high- protein diet, still retains a glacial silence about his personal life. But during a short rehearsal break in his dressing room he was quite willing talk about the situation. World Federation For the benefit of his fans, here are his views: "I think that, sooner or later, we are bound to have a world federatfon of states — a world government. Economic facts can't be ignored much longer. "It is my theory symbolized by a racial, religious or economic issue. Or they may simply be against people with red hair or people who are cruel to their goldfish." The result, Brando feels, if no way is Jfound to channel these mass hostilities is war. Brando Has Trouble Livmg with Nonconformist Legend By Eriklne Johnson HOLLYWOOD — (NEA) — The women are going to gel that famous last word again. This time in bigger than ever "feminine" movies. Says who? Perky, big - eyed Carolyn Jones says she figured it all out while appearing in six pictures dilring the last two years. Ail were films about male prob lems. Today Carolyn is predicting MGM reports a $60,000,000 profit to date on those pre 1948 flicks. I doubt about Clark Gable being impressed, though. He's currently giving Euro pean newsmen an earful on the "f(?olhardiness" of Hollywood in leasing its old movies to home screens. * * * "THE RUSS Columho Story," once planned as a movie and now becoming a one hour tele- Aurust t, im gee.

Exciting women, of course. Here's how, on the verge of big stardom, Carolyn has it figured. "Hollywood, and the world, was just getting over the war years when there was a short age of men on the screen and the women took over. After the war it was nothing but men, men, men on the screen—al most like a tranquilizer. "While movies glorified men, the women in films were left with dripping faucets *nd crying babies. Now I think the men have had it. the women at home have seen all the prewar glamour stars in old movies on TV and they are ready now for today's modern woman and her romantic problems." * * • NO, BARRIE CHASE didn t get canned from "Can Can."

For just such reasons, he now is portraying F. .Scott Fitzgerald in "Beloved Infidel." This is the story of the jazz age author 's romance with columnist Sheilah Graham during his Hollywood decline. "It's a story of a man who is trying to recapture his talent and a rather silly girl who was just one of those Holly wood things for the girl who KATHV GRANT nixed the use of "Mrs. Bing Crosby" in advertisements for the movie.

Marlon says this all adds to the Brando legend ~ « legend he finds difficulty living with. Preconceived Notions "Many people have preconceived notions of what you're like before they meet you. You have a raccoon, you drive a motorcycle, you wear a leather jacket, you play the bongo drums, you're sullen, moody, rude. "They don'.t bother to find out for themselves. They just say 'hello' and duck, exprcting me to hit them with a custard pie or something." Those who don't judge in advance, says Marlon, usually go to the other extreme — and make some sort of deity out of a star. "Must Know Everything" "Because you know how to act it's assumed that you know everything about literature, politics and nuclear physics. "The danger is that occasion ally you begin to think they're right. You start talking like an e.xpert about things you know nothing about. "It's happened to me . .

Not Pleased at First The actor admitted that the script didn't please him at {first "because I couldn't see I what charm she could have found in such a character." Peck sat down to work with producer Jerry Wald, director Henry King and the writers to instill some rewarding qualities in Fitzgerald. He did not, as was reported, do so to pad his part, said. "That item was stupid." he said. "I have never cared about padding my part. All I want is a good screenplay."
