Welcome to Vintage Paparazzi.

That’s Hollywood For You

I’m aware Elvis Presley is a judo expert, but I didn’t realize until now this subject is his opening dialogue with a girl. . . . Bet Tony Curtis never thought he’d be a Roman gladiator. . . . Tuesday Weld is still on her reformation and improvement kick; the pounding of my typewriter keys are applause for her. . . . I’ll say this for George Hamilton: He’s always well-dressed. . . . John Wayne must have surprised even John Ford with his direction of “The Alamo.” . . . Julie Newmar told me she likes Hollywood better. “This time it seems like fun here. I like my role in the picture (‘Marriage-Go-Round’), but I guess it all boils down to the amount of zeroes I get paid.” . . .






As far as I’m concerned, movies about The Beat Generation have had it. . . . May Britt’s real name is Maybritt Wilkens. . . . Weren’t you surprised by those unglamorous photos of Charles Boyer and Maurice Chevalier for “Fanny”? Especially Boyer. . . . Tony Martin should unbend a little and he’d be good in the movies. . . . The studios are using new faces so fast that Yvette Mimieux secretly calls herself “that old new face.”






Rod Steiger often can’t remember his own phone number and has to look it up in his personal address book. . . . It isn’t often you hear Marilyn Monroe praise another actress. However, she has only superlatives for Shirley MacLaine’s performance in “The Apartment.” MM thinks SM should win the Oscar. . . . Shelley Winters gained an Oscar and lost a husband, Tony Franciosa. . . . Groucho Marx claims the good old days was when women dressed on the beach the way they do now in the supermarkets.






Tab Hunter loves horses as much as that small boy loves Lassie. . . . Joan Collins kisses with her eyes open, if she doesn’t like you. They’re tightly shut for Warren Beatty. . . . Fred Astaire’s real name is Frederick Austerlitz. . . . Imagine what a box office draw Lana Turner would be in a truly fine motion picture. . . . I’m amused by the fact that in “Imitation of Life.” Sandra Dee was Lana’s daughter and in “Portrait in Black” she’s Lana’s step-daughter. . . . If Richard Burton was as colorful in the movies as he is offscreen, he’d be one of the biggest box office attractions. . . .






I admire Efrem Zimbalist Jr., not so much for his acting, hut because at a cocktail party he can take one peanut and stop. . . . I’m still wondering what actually happened between John Saxon and Vicki Thai. They looked as if they were made for each other when they announced their engagement. . . . The youngsters in the movie colony are using the attractive album covers to decorate their bedroom walls. . . .






I think Keely Smith is the best female singer around these days, and Frank Sinatra is still tops on the male list. They should do an album together. . . . Starlet Googie Schwab told me: “I’m thinking of getting married. How difficult is it to get a divorce?” . . . Zsa Zsa Gabor shopping at the Farmer’s Market—a bunch of lilacs under one arm, a ham under the other. . . .






I believe that Spencer Tracy and Fredric March, the only actors who are two-time winners of Oscars, will battle it out to see who wins it for the third time, judging by their performances in “Inherit the Wind.” . . . I think Jayne Mansfield should be bigger than she is—career-wise, I mean. . . . Anxiously I await the movie version of “West Side Story.” . . . Vincent Price told me that Hollywood is the only town about which you can say contradictory things and still be right—which is a pretty contradictory thing to say in the first place.






When Carolyn Jones gets fidgety in a movie, I do, too. . . . Wonder who displays his teeth more in a picture, Burt Lancaster, Kirk Douglas or Charlton Heston? . . . Jean Simmons always appears good-natured to me. Now if I were Stewart Granger — . . . Mamie Van Doren believes that love is the best beauty treatment for a woman. . . . A Hollywood starlet is a girl who’s great in still pictures and is waiting to get a role in a moving picture. That’s Hollywood For You.
