Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 29, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa IO The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Mon . Apr 29. 1971 Claudette Abandons Her Retirement By Bob Thomas LOS ANGELES (AP) - “I guess I wasn't cut out to be a beachcomber,” said Claudette Colbert, explaining why she ended a 10-year retirement for a grueling six-month tour of the United States in a new play. Miss Colbert, who won the Academy award for ‘‘It Happened One Night” and still looks glamorous at 08. was back in town with “A Community of Two”, a play by Jerome Chodorov. The theater was the sparkling new Shubert in Century City, occupying the onetime 20th Century-Fox backbit where she made ‘‘Drums Along the Mohawk”, “Three Came Home" and other films. That isn’t the only changes she notices. “When I left, the studios were on the wane,” she observed backstage after a matinee. “Now the studios are dead.” Seen It All Miss Colbert has seen it all happen. Born in Paris and educated there and in New York. she came to Hollywood in the late 1920s as part of the invasion of Broadway actors who were needed for the new talkies.

When her career began to dip, she returned to the stage in 1958, scoring a hit with Charles Boyer in “Marriage-Go-Round”. “In 1983, I did another play, ‘The Irregular Word to Love ,” she said. “It lasted five months, but then the assassination of President Kennedy depressed the theater business, and the show folded.” Quietly Retired The actress and her husband, Dr Joel Pressman, had grown fond of the life on Barbados. bought a home on the island, and she quietly retired. She remained at Barbados after her husband's death, spending each autumn at her apartment in Paris. “But nobody ever retires in our business, not when you’ve got acting rn your blood,” she sighed And so she agreed to return to the theater in “A Community of Two”, volunteering for the cross-country tour rather than take the play directly to New York “The play is a bubble, but people love it," she reasoned.

Calif (AP) — The 12-year marriage of ac tor-producer Peter Fonda and his wife, Susan, has ended in divorce. Superior    Court Judge Richard Wells granted Mrs. Fonda's petition for divorce after she testified the marriage had been    destroyed by irreconcilable dIfferences. Fonda and his wife have been separated for more than two years. Mrs Fonda was granted $2,500 a month in alimony and $500 a month in support for each of the couple's two children.

So why go right into New York and run the risk of losing everything? “This way, the investors can be paid back by the end of the tour.” Tour Schedule The cities remaining on the tour are Phoenix, St. Louis, Cincinnati, Columbus, Ohio, Cleveland, Toronto, New Haven and Chicago. “I’m finding out about the United States on this tour,” she remarked “With my schedule, about the only recreation I have time for is go to the museums. I have been astounded to discover the incredible treasures that can be found “In Indianapolis, there is a terrific collection of Oriental art, which is my special interest. In Philadelphia, I saw more Renoirs and Degas’ than are in all of France. No wonder the French government set up a commission to screen art treasures that leave the country. They're mostly here!” Miss Colbert hasn’t made a film since “Parrish" in 1981, and she has none planned in the future Nothing With Guts “The producers don't send me anything with guts,” she explained. “They just aren't writing roles for women nowadays, especially women my age. Oh. they do send me some horror things, but I don’t like to see them and I certainly wouldn’t want to do them.” Visitors backstage inevitably comment on how beautiful she remains. How does she manage it9 “I swim in the ocean three times a day,” she replies.

Ford and wife, Betty, house-guesting at the Walter Anneberg estate, “Sunnylands”, are the latest to fall in love with this fabled desert resort area and reportedly are looking around to buy their own little hacienda. Delores Hope looked really saddened when I asked her about plans for rebuilding their new mountainside Southridge home w hich burned down while still under construction. “We have no plans now First the fire, then Elrod’s death (Arthur Elrod, designer-decorator for the new Hope house and a close friend of the Hopes, was killed in an auto accident recently). . . We can’t help wondering what will happen next. Some of our friends are calling it (the location) ‘Superstition Hill’.” Their new home was to be* the fulfillment of a long cherished dream of Delores Hope’s — and a well deserved reward for a lovely lady who has done so much for her community. * * * Delores was among the first guests to arrive at Rolli I binders’ poolside party for the launching of her bright new MEXICAN in FOOD Every Tuesday and Thursday Wedding Rehear val Dinner*, Capacity 10 to 125 People RANCH SUPPER CIU* On Highway 2 I 8 Midway Between Cedar Rapids and Iowa City 857-2641 magazine, Sand to Sea.
