THE BILLINGS COUNTY PIONEER By F. O'Neill 6"/4- SEEK REFUGE PR.O A CO.It4 t~t '~ 'i I0 ]ReLeased by Western Newspaper Union. By VIRGINIA VALE GRACE MOORE, who's gone overseas to enter- tain servicemen, is booked for a new radio program of her own, which will take to the air this autumn. If it isn't good it will break her record --she's been successful in musical comedy, in opera, in the movies, and whenever she's done a radio stint listeners have wished for more. AU that's known at the moment is that George GRACE MOORE Givot, "The Greek Ambassador,'" will appear with her. Miss Moore, looking most attractive in uniform, bade farewell to New York officially, just before she was due to leave. No small task lay ahead of her; a little singer named Lily Pons had already set the pace for singers en- tertaining servicemen. Way back years ago, Low Ayres shot into stardom via his role in "All Quiet on the Western Front." William Goetz, head of Internation- al Pictures, thinks he has under con- tract a young man who can dupli- cate that feat. The young man is Richard Long; he hasn't completed his chores in "Tomorrow Is For- ever," but the Hollywood grapevine caught up with him, and Goetz has turned down four offers to share Long's contract. Trust Warner Bros. to catch up with the army discharge system practically as soon as it was an- nounced. In "Janie Gets Married" Johnny Miles, Art Kassel Jr John Sheridan and Mel Torme portray veterans who win their discharge via the point system. --.~ His fans are congratulating them- selves nowadays, since it's been an- nounced that Fred Allen will take over that spot on NBC at 8:30 Sun- day evenings, (EWT) rounding out a full hour of comedy which began with Edgar Bergen and Charlie Mc- Carthy. Allen will spend the sum- mer in setting up the program format of the broadcast that will mark his regular appearance to the air after a year's absence. Katina Paxinou, the talented Greek actress who gave such magnificent performance in "For Whom the Bell Tolls" two years ago and hasn't done a picture since, will be seen in the Charles Boyer- Lauren Bacall starring film, "Con- fidential ,Agent." The new March of Time :- "Spot- light on Congress" -- is crammed with vivid, informal shots of Wash- ington personalities. Much of the material, such as scenes of Presi- dent T~uman talking with Senate Majority Leader Barkley, is ex- clusive with the March of Time. The scenes of the biannual press club party for new senators are especiaUy entertaining. If you won- der how congressmen spend their time, don't miss it. Paulette Goddard says she's now "an ex-brunette trying to acquire a blonde personality." She likes her honey-blonde hair, says her husband and his friends are enthusiastic about it, so she'll keep it that way. She finished "Kitty" and has had eight months' rest since then, the longest holiday she's ever had. Spent a lot of it at her Santa Monica beach home. She's the same Pau]ette, blonde or brunette. Maybe it's so that Hal Wallis thinks Lizabeth Scott can be built up to rival Lauren Bacalt. Lizabeth's initial screen effort is "You Came Along," in which she has a fairly difficult role. She'd had good trair~ ing with the road company of Olsen and Johnson's "Hellzapoppin Says even training with the commandos would be a cinch beside that! ODDS AND ENDS -- 20th Century Foz's "The ~gay Aheed" brings David Nive~ beck to the screen lot the f~r~ time since he le~t Hollywood to en~is~ in the British army Oversea# en~r. tainment list includes Son~a Henie Samuel Goldwyn thinks Steve Caehra~ of "Wonder Man," is "e younger Clark Gable." . . . loan Coulfiel~s sister Bob ty, who replaced ]oats as the lead b~ Broadway's "Kiss and Tell," has been receiving fdm ogers as the result e~ ]oan's success in "Miss Susie Slagl~."~ , Binnie Barnes won the role o/"Anne Bonney" in RKO's producd~ "Tl~ Spanish Main."
