HE'S WOE "BARON OF BEEFCAKE"
LONDON, Sat: Toosle-haired, loose-limbed Rode Hudson*. called?-."the baron of beef-
cake,*' is now visiting Britain on his way to Ireland to make the Technicolor adventure "Captain Lightfoot."
He carries a prize ex- ample of his thousands of daily fan letters around with him, says it comes from Australia; but, being a gent, he can't reveal the lady's name.
Letter reads, in part:
i "Come, take me away where our eager lips can meet in silent vows of eter- nal love."
"I want to feel your arm caressing me tenderly."
"I never knew that lone- liness could be so hard on me."
"The emptiness I feel in my heart is unbearable."
OOKTNG flt and sun-
burnt, Dennis Price has
begun his comeback, with Olivia de Havilland in "That Lady."
Producer Sy Bartlett told me: "Price is a good actor, and the man I want for the part."
Added Price to me: "I play a court villain, who arranges all the murders. You want any dirty work done-I'll fix it."
