ls it possible? Yes, Mount Pulaski, lllinois, has been selected tor
the world premier ot that super-super cinema masterpiece, "Gone
ls the Wind." As everyone knows, this record-breaking best seller
was written by the winner ot the Nobel Prize tor eight years, Beryl
Wachter, using the pen name of Marg-aret Satchello. Miss Wach-
ter wrote "Gone ls the Wind" in l956, and it was immediately sold
to the McCullough'Sams-Bertoni movie company and has been in
roduction these tour years. Father Time will not mind, however,
because l960 is more than happy to welcome this splendid achieve-
Come, it will soon be curtain time, and we want to meet some ot
the celebrities as they come to the gala premier.
As our taxi pulls up in front ot the theatre, the lights on the mar-
quee begin their ay twinkling. Our tickets are ready and we en-
ter the theatre. gNNe are given a program printed by a Mr. R.
Aughenbaugh. Now where have we heard that name before? At-
ter usher W. McKinley takes us to our seats, we have a few mo-
ments to look about us before the picture begins.
Wilna Emery's Emerywheels strike up a snappy tune with their star
trumpet player, Charles Hanslow-and, we have a stage review star-
ring the nationally known tap dancer, Alice Stockton.
If only the stars ot the picture would come! Whom have we here?
Ah, it's another ot the lovely ladies ot the screen, Miss Marilyn
Buckles. She seems quite happy to be back in her home town.
Following close behind her, we see the lady whose word is law in
the field ot etiquette, personality, and character hints-the modern
Emily Post, Miss Lois Watson.
Ot course, the radio stars are here also. There is that tamous sing-
ing Eair, Alice Yauch and June Ridgeway. Helena Hahn, the star
of t e "Daytime Love Series," is a beauty operator in spare mo'
ments. And, there, too, is that genial quiz-master, Willis Laatsch.
How stupid of mel l torgot our three wise men who are now an-
swerin the questions on 'Information Please"-John Martin, Rob-
ert Gu so, and Wallace McGee. Um, that proves that trends can-
Here is the great banker, Leonard Obery, closely followed by his
secretary, Miss Marilyn Voyles. And there is the most successful
lawyer ot the day, Kenton Opperman. Behind him comes that ev-
er-busy program director tor NBC, J. Dalen Shellhammer. His hob'
by is collecting movie magazines ot which he has an entire library.
Now entering is his librarian, Sylvia Allsopp. We iust caught a
glimpse ot the season's most popular debutante, Irma Ryan. How
well she keeps her youth! Also entering is that globe-trotter ot the
class ot '40, Doris Ge er. As you know, she made both her trips
around the world on the S. S. Hilltop. And in row I3 lhe's super-
stitiousl, is none other than the pilot, Earl Riggs, who won his tame
by an endurance tlight over Hawaii. Even he is surprised he stayed
up so long.
Everyone seems breathless with excitement. Perhaps it's because
the stars ot the picture have been kept a secret, and now their
names are to be revealed. There have been many rumors as to
their identit , but as yet it has not been made public. We know,
ot course. that they will be two of the screen's top ranking stars.
We have our own opinions about the matter, and-we're ri ht!
The theatre manager, Gerald Dittus. is presentin them now. Tihey
are Charles Reidle and Vir inia Underhill, and gem what we have
heard they'll be adding ano?her Academy Award to their collection.

there goes the curteinl
