SHE'S CAST TO PLAY IN FILM
THE Australian character actress Lettie
Craydon has been chosen for the second female role in the American-directed film "Kangaroo," and will fly to Port Augusta, South Australia, on Tuesday, to join the company.
Miss Craydon will play Kathleen, housekeeper to Maureen O'Hara, and is under a monthly contract with a daily option up to six weeks. The contract was signed this week.
She was chosen after her per- formance as Sister Josephine in the play "Bonaventura."
Miss Craydon said yesterday she was most excited and proud to be working under a director of the abilities of Lewis Milestone.
"It will be a wonderful break for me and of tremendous educa- tional value. I looked over my part the other day, and I love it, particularly as it has a touch of Irish about it.
"I have been studying it hard and getting ready to leave. My frocks have been prepared, ana I have tried most of them on.
"It will be marvellous working with Maureen O'Hara and Peter Lawford; but, I'm not a star, and I doubt whether my name will be in big lights," Miss Craydon said.
