HOLLYWOOD, Dec. 23 (m
What Christmas do you re
member most?
This is a sentimental ques
tion. Being sentimentalists,
movie stars were quick to re
spond to it. Here are their ans
wers to the AP Hollywood forum
question of the day: -
Glenn Ford— "it was in 1938
and I had just opened and clos
ed on Broadway in a flop called
‘Soliloquay.’ I was broke. but
too proud to write for money.
I walked down Fifth Avenue on
Christmas Eve, listened to the
chimes and looked at the win
dows. I walked into ‘an automat
and treated myself to coffee
and pie a la mode with the last
15 cents to my name. That was
my Christmas feast."
Broderick Crawford— “I’ll nev
er forget Christmas in Germany
in 1944. We had nothing but
K rations to eat and no Christ
mas cards to cheer us up. For
tunately. we found three quarts
of brandy, so we got happy be
fore we started crying."
Ginger Rogers— “I was six
years old. My grandmother tag.
ged me and put me on the train
for New York where I spent my
first Christmas with my mother
in several years. I remember
I got a tea set and made every
body have tea with me.” ‘
Hontgomuy Clift— “I remem
ber the year the tree burned
down. My mother wanted white
candles on the tree and my fa

ther cited an instance when as
tree had burned because of a
short. circuit, so she won out.
The tree burned down. and all
our presents with it.”
Jack Canon— “1 was eight
years old and wanted an elec
tric train. Four days before
Christmas, I found it. So on
Christmas day I gave perhaps
the greatest performance of my
career trying to act surpris

John Wayne Gefs
Top Yule Rafing
HOLLYWOOD, Dec. 2441?)
John Wayne isn’t looking for
Santa Claus tonight; .he already
has his Christmas gift.
“Being nominated as number
two on the box-office is the best
Christmas present I could get,”
said the‘rangy star. V
Wayne is philbsdphical about
his success and attributes it to
the fact that his films show “hon
est emotion.” ‘
“The reason some pictures are
so bad,” he declared. “Is that the
director or writer or actor is a
fraid to show sentiment. They’ll
twist the plot around to avoid it.
And they are wrong. The world
loves sentiment. ' 7
“All my successful pictures
were hits because they were
frankly sentimental. The women
in the audience cried, and they
loved it. 7
.“There will be sentiment in my
present picture, ‘Jet Pilot,’ too.
I’ll play some scenes with a
baby. People will be curious to
see how a big bruiser handles a
baby.” ,
Acting, he continued, doesn't
require .any formal lessons.
(Wayne received his dramatic
training on the USC football
team.)
"Of course, an actor has to
acquire poise—either through
dramatic schooling or by working
in quickies. But lessons don’t
make an actor.
“I've learned that what’s being
said in a scene.lsn’t so important.
It’s the reaction to what’s being
said. The more natural the re
action, the hetter the actor.
That's why kids are so good on
the screen—their reactions are
completely natural.”
A SMART ACTOR
Without appearing so, Wayne
is one of the smartest actors in
the business. He is aware of his
limitations and .will not under
take anything that is over his
depth. He is also not afraid of
work. .
“I have four' pictures already
lined up for next year, which
means I’m not going to have any
time off. But,” he added hastily,
“I’m not complaining.”
Reflecting on his 20-year career
in films, Wayne recalled that he
was the screen’s first singing

Linda Darnell— “My favorite
was last year, the first Christ

Irene Dunue— “I remember
when I was nine and had the
mumps. The whole Christmas
was held around my bed and I
got a doll and doll buggy. Be
lieve it or not, I stili believe in
Santa Claus.”
Joseph Cotten— “I guess my
favorite was the year I got my

wouldn’t be happy unless I got

“I played a character who al

he recalled. “Soon they had me
