Dual Movie Roles
HOLLYWOOD il'I'i Dual roles
are popular in these days of Holly
wood economy, but Glenn Kurd
doesn t believe in them.
The system given (lie studio to
actors for the price of one and
economizes on costumes, makeup
and chairs on the set It also gives
the actor a double set of closeups
Ford's the only aitor we know of
who turned that attraction down.
"I want people to leave the
theater wishing thc d seen mure
of me. instead of le .s." he ;aid
Furthermore, hp thinks audi
ences would do heiter to concen
trate on what he s doing, in, lead of
how he's doing it
"When an actor appear: oppo
site himself.'' says Kind, "the audi
ence can't think about an thing
except how in heck did Kiev do
Ford was supposed In pl.i two
parts in Columbia's Ui.n.ni i
that of Jacob Wal.. the man who
stumbled acro-s Arizona's fabu
lous 'Lost DiiUhuian" gold mines
77 years ago, and Barr Storm, a
prospector who's been looking for
them for the last 11 yenrs.
How It Started
Now Ford is just p!aing Walz.
William Trinee plays Storm
"It takes more than one actor."
Ford said, "to make a good pic
ture." The economical dual role sorted
back in the siltnt days when a
short-reeler technician found out
how to mask half a film, take a
scene wind it back, and expose the

There's Sir C Aubrev Smith

Charles Winnineer is 64.
Still going strong at 68 is Jesse

of Hollywood's first studios. Anoth
er veteran producer, Sam Gold

is the 68th picture for 67-year-old
Director Cecil B. DeMille.
The actors' list must include
nionocled. cigar-chewing Charles
cobuin. Chnrlie started me investi
gating screen seniors' ages when

joys good health, and finds as. much
zest and amazement as ever in his
daily work. He's playing a police
detective in "Impact".
Two years ago, an insurance
company doctor checked Charlie
over and reported: "I've just ex
amined a man who's 35 years old
Some exaggeration there, prob
ably, in the medien's enthusiasm
But I asked Coburn what keeps
"I rode bicycles from the time I
was 14 until I was 20," Charlie
said; "I was an amateur and then
a pro rider, in the South and East.
I played baseball, fenced, played
tennis, everything, until I was 40.
Then I stopped. Even golf. I don't
even walk if I can ride."
At his last annual checkup, the
doctor ordered six-foot. 220-pound
Charlie to take off 10 pounds, but
he loves fattening foods. They go
to his plump middle.
Charlie averages eight 32-cent
cigars a day "I never inhale"
and may drink Scotch and soda of
an evening. He refuses to worry
about anything. He never goes to
sleep before 2 a.m. a -habit from
many years in the theater but
says he can equal two or three
hours' sleep (for an average per
son) in 15 minutes in a chair on a
movie set. He even sometimes
dozes off at the table in friends'
homes. "In long years of touring
in the theater," Charlie explains,
"I learned to relax."

happy ending as Albert Greene, a member of the staff of the Brooklyn
Jewish Sanitarium for Chronic Diseases, carries his bride, the former
Alice Korotkin, from the hall in which they were married. Six years ago,
Alice, then a girl of 18, was takeif to the hoipital suffering from a seem

carefully followed a rehabilitation routine and recently was able to toss

By GENE HANDSHAKER
HOLLYWOOD Well, I ve now
seen all five most-discussed femi
nine starring performances int1948.
Far's I'm concerned thev can call
off the balloting for next spring's
Oscar awards. It's. Jane Wyman in
As a' deaf mute in "Jolinny Be- j
linda". she left me speechless, too.
. Other feminine performances
equally sure to be nominated i
and why, according to mv crystal i
ball, thev won't win:
Irene Dunne In "I Remember ,
Mama". A Brand Derformanrp hut
snow dimmed somewhat by inter- i
Barbara Stanwvck in "Knrrv i
Wrong Number". A peachy por
trayal of a spoiled, selfish, neu
rotic woman who almost deserves
the violent fate awaiting her. Miss
Wyman's role, on the other hand, j
is 1.000 per cent sympathetic '
That's bound to sway votes ! '
Ingrid Bergman in "Joan of
Arc ". Fine, but too icily devoted:
not warm and human enough. Left
me cold. ;
Olivia dc Havilland in "The
Snake Pit". Superb denirtinn r,f ,
an insane woman which is just
the trouble. Picture is excellent '
but gives you the creeps. Besides. J
the Academy's aoDroximateiv 9 nnn i
voters will remember that Olivia
already has one Oscar. So has
Miss Bergman. Spread 'em around,
they may decide.
The best male starring perform
ance is a cinch to be Laurence
Olivier s in "Hamlet" nth,
ably nominees: John Wavn- i
"Red River", Lew Ayres in "John
ny Belinda". RicharH wirtm,,i. i
"Street With No Name", Montgom-
-y wm m "ine Search".
My other nominations and you
may fire when ready:
cesi picture: -Johnny Belinda",
Hamlet", "Red River", "The Nak
ed City", Sitting Pretty".
