REFUSE TO WORK WITH ALIEN
Strikers Hold Up Paillette Coddard Film LONDON, March 26.
The hairdresser of Paulette Goddard, the screen actress, is the cause of an unofficial lightning strike, which has stopped produc-
tion at the Shepperton Studios of Sir Alexander Korda's £500,000 technicolor film, "An Ideal Hus band," which has been employing nearly 1,000 people. Acting against their villon's ad vice, 20 make-up and haindressing experts downed brushes, combs and powder puffs, and immobilised the entire production—after only one day's work—because they refused to work with a foreigner. Thr cause of the dispute is Hed wig Mjorud, an American girl, of Swedish birth, who has been Pau lette Goddard's hairdresser for four years. Miss Goddard brought her to England, and a Ministry of Labor permit was obtained for her to work. The Shepperton Union approved her engagement, because no other hairdresser was available for this specialised job, but workers want Mjorud replaced by an English employe, and have walked out.
