DETROIT FREE PRESS 1 22 Thursday, Oct. 13. 1949 Police Quiz AU dirks' for Clews Tttt Presi Wire SrrvWi LOS ANGELES Missing Actress Jean Spangler's note addressed to a person named "Kirk" led police to question every person they could locate in Hollywood with that name, including Film Star Kirk Douglas. With a cold, five-day trail to follow, officers decided that if they located the mysterious 'Kirk" they might have some clew to the disappearance of the 27-year-old brunet beauty. .. DOUGLAS TOLD the police, "I wish I could help, but I didn't even know the girl by name. Star Gazing Theater Manager Meets Old Buddy in Movies BY HELEN BOWER Avenue Show Features Dancer Nadine, dance specialist, will be featured in "Gals and Giggles,' new roadshow opening Thursday at the Avenue Theater. lie added that 1 didn't remember the girl or the name until a friend recalled it was she who worked as an extra in a scene with me in my picture 'Young Man with a Horn.' "Then I recalled that she was a tall girl in a green dress and that I talked and kidded with her a bit on the set. "But I never saw her before, or after that." Anna Lucasta " tot- , ' $ FV'V 1 a ? ' ' . - Sit ( ' Sr S8 J i v 5 t I SOMETHING that could have happened on celluloid in the movies happened to people in the movies and show business. When Art MacCall, manager of the Downtown Theater, first saw "Abandoned" screened, he spotted with great excitement the character named "Little Guy" DeCola who lights matches under Raymond Burr's armpits to make him "sing." The role is played by Will Kuluva, an officer trainee with MacCall at Fort Benning during the war. Both men- were sent overseas to Italy. MacCall was in command of Nisei troops. Kuluva was elsewhere on the penin sula. The two never met again. As soon as MacCall could get to his desk, he sent a letter to the studio in Hollywood to ask where Kuluva is now. Janice Kingslow will have the title role in the production of "Anna Lucasta" opening Friday at 8:30 p. m. on the stage of the Paradise Theater for a week with matinees Saturday and Sunday. John Tait will play the male lead. Jewish Movie to Be Shown "Destination Israel," first pro-ifessional postwar Jewish movie made in Europe, will be shown continuously from 2:30 to 11:30 p. m. Sunday in Music Hall. The movie of displaced persons wandering for 10 years between Poland and Israel will star Bettina Moisi. It was filmed in Munich with English, Yiddish, Polish and German sound track plus English subtitles. A musical film will star Molly Picon. Yiddish entertainers in person will complete the program. Survey to Show Keaton Comedy "The General," starring Buster Keaton, will be screened at 4:30, 7:30 and 9:30 p.m. Thursday in Wayne University's State Hall on the Wayne-Jam Handy film survey series. As usual, a discussion will follow the 7:30 showing. Named to Board PONTIAC Eugene A. Gump, former State official, was named to the Pontiac police and fire trial board. The snapper came in the reply that Kuluva will be coming to Detroit, Oct. 31, in the company of Katharine Cornell's new play, "That Lady." Naturally MacCall is looking forward to a real reunion with his old buddy. Lady Governor LAST SATURDAY I had the pleasure of meeting Lady Violet Bonham - Carter at the Detroit Boat Club party given in her honor by Dr. and Mrs. Malcolm D. Mac-Queen. Supplementing Laure'na Prin-gle's interview with Lady Violet in her Wednesday column is Lady Violet's association with the theater and radio. This amazing woman was a member of the British Broadcast ing Company's board of governors during the war. She is at present on the board of governors of the famous "Old Vic," which most Americans associate with the work of Sir Lau rence Olivier. Lady Violet told me that the Old Vic company is preparing to stage "Love's Labor Lost and Turgenev s A Month in the Country." War Trials Films MENTIONED RECENTLY In Star Gazing as available for civil ian screening, the Nurenberg war trials films have been obtained by one Detroit group. They will be shown at 6 p. m. Sunday, Oct. 23, at the Iroquois Avenue Christ Lutheran Church under the auspices of the church young people. Donald Weeks, of the group, has also given me a signal corps film library address which may be helpful to others wishing to show the films. They may be requested from the Fifth Army Central Film Library, Fort Sheridan, 111. MEMO TO "Bill from Saginaw": Erroll Flynn has a part in the movie filmed from Galsworthy's "Forsyte Saga." But the picture also stars Greer Garson and Walter Pidgeon, as Star Gazing reported. Memo to Wallace O. Wainio, of Toledo: The statement that "Jolson Sings Again" is to have its Midwest premiere at the Madison Theater Thursday evening was made in good faith, both by the theater and this column. Wainio wrote that he saw the movie in Chicago, Sept. 3, and added "Perhaps yout paper and you do not consider Chicago as being in the Midwest." According to my check, the movie probably had an advance test showing in Chicago. Of course the studio may also leave Chicago out of the Middle West the way a wrestler can be a world's champion with the exception of Indiana and Illinois. iiMm"Mirm . tximi l-1 I mm mm ' I WJ 'nee more, my wrung ( i II Mat.
