Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - September 24, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Beck’s Show Business Beat ma H> Marilyn Berk HOLLYWOOD (NYT) - An extremely elated Doris Day received the overwhelming news last week that she may he $2.1 million dollars richer. That’s the amount Superior Court Judge Lester Olson awarded her in deciding in her favor in the lawsuit she’s waged these past six months against Jerome Rosenthal, business partner of her late husband, Marty Melcher. Actually, the battle to re* iiwwnhum i cover monies from the Martin Melcher estate goes back for six years — a battle fought al most single-handedly by Doris’ son. Terry Melcher. Last year Rosenthal af templed to have Terry removed as administrator of the Melcher estate. He failed in that battle, And now Terry has won the war for recovery to his mother of the fortune. “Ifs turned out bettor than I could ever dream," says the 31-year-old Melcher. awn Theater Times for Tuesday PARAMOUNT - “Together Brothers” — 7 40, 9 30 IOWA — “The Godfather" — 1:30, 4 40 , 7:50; shorts — 4 30. 7:40 WORLD — “That’s Entertainment!” — 2, 4:30, 7, 9:30 TIMES — "Act of Vengeance” - 2:IO.' 3:55, 5:40, 7:30, 9:20; shorts - 2, 3:40, 5:25, 7 15, 9:05 PLAZA — “Throw Out the Anchor” — 7, 9:20.

(UPI) -Night club hypnotist Ronald Dante, a fonder husband of Pana Turner, was declared mentally competent this week to stand trial on an attempted murder charge, for allegedly trying to hire an assassin to kill a rival hypnotist. Dante, 44. underwent 30 days of psychiatric testing following testimony at a pretrial hearing that .his mental abilities may have been impaired by drugs Superior Court Judge Robert Q. Roylston scheduled the trial to begin Oct. 16 Gleason’s Second Wife Contests Divorce FORT LAUDERDALE. Fla (UPI) — Jackie Gleason’s second wife has contested her husband’s divorce action and is apparently hoping for a reconciliation. Mrs. Gleason. 41, the former Beverly McKittrick. filed a petition in circuit court here asking the court to dismiss her husband’s divorce suit and to delay all proceedings to give the couple time to effect a reconciliation. Gleason, 58. married the former secretary whom he met on a golf course in England in 1970 following a widely publicized divorce from his first wife. •>SCKQf 0 Itll Sd ffertVS Cedar Rapids System Telephone 3CMQ44 Area Ten (SEATS) In Cedar Rapids 398-5605 Elsewhere 800-332-5096 it TONITi * THE BANK proton ft: • LADIES NIGHT • IAU DRINKS VS PRICE TO THE LADIES . , pit)* “TRUTH & JANEY" ON THIS DATE in 1780, during the Revolutionary war, Benedict Arnold escaped to a British ship after attempting to betray the West Point fortifications on the Hudson river. As for Doris, several years ago she told me that — after decades of stardom — mismanagement had lift her virtually broke, without even title to her home. She certainly doesn’t have to worry about money now "He’s a genius," says the actress of her only child. After the results of the hearings, no one could disagree Judge Olson found Rosenthal guilty of breach of contract, breach of fiduciary relationship — plus various other charges involving misuse of the monies of the Martin Melcher estate. Michele Phillips is anxiously awaiting the return of exhusband John Phillips from New York so they can get about the business of recording her first solo record album. The former “Mama” of the Mamas and the Papas fame tells me she’s experienced much apprehension about her first independent singing try, but after recent rehearsals in New York for the disc, says, “I feel much more confident about the session “I was always afraid to record alone. I had no one to adviso me, to help me along But having John beside me in New York, serving as producer of the project, made the apprehensions vanish Suddenly I wasn't lonely. He was there every step of the way. telling me what to do and what not to do.” Michelle admits that these years since the breakup of the Mamas and the Papas have not been all that pleasant. There was the emotional distress of a personal life that included a fiery affair with Jack Nicholson, and the miscarriage of their child There was also the enforced idleness she underwent when she found herself without an outlet in music. These past three years she s been concentrating on making a name for herself as an actress, though that road I hasn’t been extremely easy for her to traverse She will be seen Wednesday in ABC’s Movie of the Week, “California Kid”, but says, “since that show completed production I haven't been given the opportunity to do much else.” She can take her professional life more in stride these days however, because her j personal life is finally coming into shajnv “I no longer feel compelled to bury myself in work," declares Michelle, “because of groovy things that are happening.” She’s not only referring to the groovy work relationship she's establishing with exhusband John Phillips, but to a new love who’s come into her lib* —■ whose name she’d rather keep secret for the moment. “I don't want to take the chance of anything bad happening to this relationship Mavin* I’m just superstitious." She probably has reasons to be. • * * It s star time, folks, “( bleo and the Man” has thus far only had a two-time, on-air tryout, and already Freddie Prinze is creating the impression he considers himself a super celebrity. Sources on the set tell me the 19-year-old comedian is creating quite a bit of trouble for his production bosses, and giving a minimum of cooperation to NBC. Freddie is only two years removed from his New York City ghetto background, but is already acting as if he knows it all. Unless things calm down. you can expect fireworks to erupt on the “Chico” set before the season's half through And, whattya know, it isn't even a Tandem Productions show. Karl Holliman has been miffed at NHC (that network is having its share of personality problems) because of ads that have been promoting his “Police Woman” series The ads read. “Angie Dickinson, co-starring Karl Holliman.” Far! instead insisted they be changed to read, “starring Angie Dickinson and Karl Holliman ” And of such molehills are mountains molded in movie-land. The Beatles might soon be on the way to the storage area of the Hollywood wax museum reserved for yesterday's idols. Seems few visitors to the museum pay any attention to the waxen reproductions of the Liverpool lads And that many of the young visitors don’t even know who the Beatles are.
