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."
