Stars Galore in New Hollywood Titles


(Copyright, 1966. JTA, Inc.)

HOLLYWOOD—Jerry Lewis has
completed "Three On A Couch,"
his 34th picture, the first one
away from Paramount studios
where he started 17 years ago as
partner of the Martin and Lewis
team in Hal Wallis' screen comedy,
"My Friend Irma." Since becom-
ing a solo performer, Lewis has
starred in, directed, written and/or
produced his own films, with none
of his productions grossing less
than $5,000,000, a record in the an
nals of Hollywood.
"Three On A Couch" marks the
comic's first production for Colum-
bia and, simultaneously, his change
of pace from slapstick to a more
sophisticated approach to comedy.
The screenplay was written by vet-
eran scribe Samuel Taylor, but
Lewis has maintained the preroga-
tive of the money-making star to
be his own producer and director.
In "Three On A Couch," Jerry
portrays a commercial artist in
love with a lady psychiatrist, Janet
Leigh, who cannot marry him be-
cause she has three female pa-
tients in need to be cured before
she settles down. One of the girls
is depicted by Israeli actress Gila
Golan, who portrayed a badly cur-
tailed part in "Ship of Fools" but
proved herself a better comedienne
than dramatic performer in the
madcap spy thriller. "Our Man
Flint." We talked to Miss Golan at
Columbia Studios and found the
young lady, who was about to go
on a personal appearance tour.
much happier and more relaxed
than she had been during, our first
interview on the set of the Stanley
Kramer epic.

Joseph E. Levine has signed
Stephen Boyd. the star of his high-
ly successful "The Oscar." to head
the cast of a second film to be pro-
duced and directed for him by the
team of Clarence Green and Rus-
sell Rouse. "Caper of the Golden
Bulls" is a suspense - thriller by
William P. McGivern. and will be
photographed later this year in
Hollywood, Madrid, Rome and
Levine's Embassy Production ,.
also is preparing, in London, "The
Spy With the Cold Nose." an un-
likely title for an unlikely story:
starring Laurence Harvey, with
Leonard Lightstone as producer

NY State Legisktors
Summon Rockwell to
Hearings on Neo-NAzis

State legislative group began
hearings this week in New York
City on the activities of neo-Nazi
.groups. They follow the start of a
similar inquiry by a joint -State
Assembly and Senate committee
into the activities of the John
Birch Society.
Two self-proclaimed "fuehrers"
of neo-Nazi groups—George Lin-
coln Rockwell of the American
Nazi Party, and James H. Madole
of the National Renaissance Party
—were subpoenaed to appear at
the hearings.
The committee chairmen, Sen.
Irwin Brownstein, and Assembly-
man B. L. Podell, both Brooklyn
Democrats, are seeking to deter-
mine whether the neo-Nazi organ-
izations should be required to file
financial reports with the state
as legitimate political parties must
Since they announced the investi-
gation into the John Birch Society
earlier this month, both Sen.
Brownstein and Assemblyman Po-
dell have been deluged with hate
mail and threatening telephone
calls, many of the callers identify-
ing themselves as members of
neo-Nazi groups.
The previous hearings have been
guarded by uniformed state po-
licemen and plainclothes detec-
tives. Many blackshirt and brown-
shirted members of neo-Nazi
groups were among the specta-
tors, but no hostile incidents oc-

of money with the theatrical fea-
ture, "The Oscar," grossing in New
York alone during the first week-
end over $50,000, he is distributing

mentary, "John F. Kennedy: Years

out a fee at all, deducting from the

umentary, opening at Levine's Lin-

Marie Desmarais, who brought
the United States rights - to the
Czech Academy Award nominee,
"The Shop on Main Street," was in
Hollywood to be introduced to the
press by Francis Lederer (himself
a native of Prague) during a recep-
tion at the Lytton Center of the
Visual Arts. When we asked Miss
Desmarais, who is French-Jewish ;
why she had gone to Czechoslova-
kia and gambled a large sum - on the
purchase of a film no one had ever-
heard about, she answered quietly:
"My heart told me so." Ida Kamin-
ska, who portrays the Jewish wid-
ow caught by the turmoil of Hit-
lerism in a small Slovak commu-
nity, is still a leading actress in
Warsaw, where she maintains her
own theater.
"Way . . . Way Out," Jerry
Lewis' current epic now before the
cameras at Fox Studios, is a space
comedy unlike the completed
"Three On A Couch" that has more
leisurely moments. Teaming with
Jerry in a space suit, or something
more comfortable, are Connie Ste-
vens, Anita Ekberg, Robert Mor-
ley; and such old-time clowns as
Fritz Feld, Dennis Weaver, Bobo
Lewis, and Sig Ruman, plus Is-
rael's Ben Astar.
