By Bab Thomas LOS ANGELES (AP) -While Debbie Reynolds set no academic records at Burbank high school,she does know her history, and she is doing something about preserving Hollywood’s. When her Broadway hit “Irene” ojx*nt»d here at the Shubert theater, the star insisted on a $50-a-ticket preview and supper party to benefit the Hollywood Motion Picture and Television Museum If anyone can get the museum built, it is Debbie “The studios aren't going to do it,' she says. “The people running the studios nowadays don’t care about Hollywood’s past. I think it s now up to the guilds to take over and try to build this thing ” Debbie’s Treasures A permanent museum for movie and television artifacts has been discussed for years Pioneer producer Sol lesser almost accomplished the feat a decade ago, but his plan foundered rn bureaucratic waters Debbie Reynolds discussed her crusade at her Beverly Hills mansion between the matinee and evening performances of “Irene” and displayed some of the treasures in her basement — Marilyn Monroe’s gown from “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes”, Katharine Hepburn’s costume from “Sea of Grass”. Deborah Kerr’s from “The Prisoner of Zenda”. "The picture business has always been sloppy about taking care of its history,” she said “The studios only cared about the present, and they’ve lost costumes, props, still photographs —even mov ies.

A* “Did you know that they had to go to Russia to get a complete print of the old Eddie Cantor picture, ‘Whoopee’? I think that’s terrible.” The turning point for Debbie came when MGM auction^ off its costumes and props in a desperation move to stave off bankruptcy. She consulted with designer Hugh Hunt, who had worked on scores of MGM movies from “Marie Antoinette” to “Gigi”. He advised her what was worth buying, and she did her own research in old photos to make sure the items were authentic. “I tried to pick up things that could make whole That OTHER Crusoe never had it so good... or so FUNNY!

Then I tried to get a costume for each imixirtant person in the cast.” She also picked up a pair of those ruby slippers that Judy Garland wore in “The Wizard of Oz”. "They were worn in tests,” said Debbie, who cast doubt on the pair that was auctioned off as the real ones “I tried them on and they were too big; Judy and I wore the same size — 4 Vfc.” Debbie bought more Hollywood luna at the 20th Cen* tury-Fox and Columbia Pictures auctions and has personal donations from such figures as Jack Oakie and Frtxi Astaire. “The trouble is that stars hardly ever kept their own costumes,” she said. “The studio owned them, and they never gave us the opportunity to buy the clothes." Building Problem She put her own time and money into the collection, which is now running up big storage bills. Now the museum is a nonprofit organization, and she is looking for a way to get it built “Bob Hope is interested,” she said. “He owns property opposite NHC and was thinking of putting up his own museum there “The Harold Lloyd estate would be a perfect place, but the neighbors put up a big fight over traffic when the place was open to the public.” WELCOME TO SCENIC ATOKA COUNTY FV»p. 10,000.
