'To Each His Own' Composers Hake $40,000 Each, Write Other Songs By Gene Handaaker HOLLYWOOD Jay Livingston and Ray F.vans are slender, long faced young men in solemn, studi ous spectacles and' 'loud sport coats. Ray is a worrier, Jay a calm, carefree type. Together they make beautiful music. Their song, "To Each His Own," brought them $40, 000 apiece. Their lyrics to Victor Young's music helped make "Gold en 'Errings" a current favorite. Four years ago, Ray and J,Fay hadn't $30 between them. Ray, now 33, once wa a $t5-a-weck New York City accountant. He still looks like one. So, for that matter, does Jay, 32. Jay earned a like amount playing the piano, daytimes while, nights, they tried to write songs. They'd met in Jay's dance band Ray played clarinet and sax at the Univer sity of Pennsylvania. Afterward their band had toured the world, playing for dances on summer cruise ships. They advise other aspiring song writers to crash this tough game the way they did: Pester the art ists. Offer, them special material. They poured out their hearts writing clever letters to Broadway stage stars, got a nibble from Ol son and Johnson. Soon they were writing special songs for the come dians. O. J., coining here to make a movie, brought Ray and Jay along. But that movie had its own staff song writers. Ray and Jay, nearly broke, wrote two songs at $100 apiece for an obscure picture on another lot. One time caught the ear of Johnny Mercer. Ray and Jay hung around Mercer's favorite re freshment counter just to say hello. Stumped for a novelty tune one day, he called them in. He liked their stuff. His record com pany needed a tune for Betty Hut ton, which they supplied. From there it was a short hop to Para mount Pictures, where they now have an office, two littered desks, a typewritten a piano, and nice salaries. They have 10 tunes in forthcom ing films. They're most hopeful for "Buttons and Bows," a bouncy novelty on the give-me-city-life theme, which Bob Hope sings to Jane Russell while jogging along in a covered wagon in the picture, "The Paleface." something speetilieular" hap- nd, the way this semi-docu mentary trend Js going, the movie makers may be at the scene next morning. Last Dec. 30, producer Bryan Foy picked- up his paper and read that.12 men had escaped from the Colorado State Peniten tiary at Canon City. Before the last fugitive was recaptured three days later, he had a screenwriter at the prison.- -"''.'. V; The writer lived eight days at the home of Warden Roy Best, combed the prison, quizzed In mates. Several suburban families terrorized by the cons re-enacted their experiences for him. The scenarist returned here and wrote his script. Eagle-Lion studio then flew a crew of 82, including 18 actors, to Canon City. The first night's shooting of prison exteriors was in 17-below-zero cold that snapped the film and numbed the cameramen's fingers to awkward thumbs. , Prison barbers gave the actors prison haircuts. The fugitives, now in solitary, were interviewed by the actors portraying them. Ac tor Jeff Corey told Werner Sch wartzmiller, leader of the break: "I'm sorry they couldn't get a pret tier guy than me to play you, but you're ppetty goony-iooking to be gin with." The convict laughed loudly and said, "You'll do me okay." Some 1.200 convicts played them selves for a day at $7.50 movie extra pay each. They were photo graphed marching into the cell blocks and retreating into their cells on orders of the fugitives. Members of the Canon City Little Theater played bit parts. The re captulred prisoners Were Rhot graphed Speaking a few lines from behind "bars for an epilogue to the picture. One says: "We'd have made it If it hadn't been for the snow." Another: "This'll be a les son to kids." The movie, "Canon City," is be ing completed here. Crane Wilbur, writer-director, says his most vivid memory from the excursion is of Mrs. Lawrence N. Oliver. She, a small farmwife, slipped a hammer under her apron and struck Sch wartzmiller with it.
