CURRENT PUBLICITY — "OUT OF THE FOG' Dreams Up Titles Maurice Goldman, Hollywood prop boy, never wrote a song in his life but he can make up some red hot song titles. How do you like “Love Me Quick” Or “Kissin’ In the Kitchen’’? Those were two of 16 or more that Goldie had to dream up for “Out of the Fog,” the Strand’s exciting new drama featuring Ida Lupino, John Garfield, Thomas Mitchell and Eddie Albert. One of the principal sets is a cheap cafe in which a coin operated phonograph, or juke box, is an important item. Well aware of what dire things might happen if he poached either in ASCAP or BMI domains, Goldie took metronome in hand and ticked off titles of his own to put on the front of the machine. Some of his others: “Stop Light,” “The Kangaroo Twitch,” “Hi, Ho, Hicup,” “Kitsle Ketsle” (which he swears isn’t naughty), “Cassy Bites,” and “If I Had a Dime.” Many-Sided Tobias The many men that George Tobias is, is beginning to make him groggy. One day he was “Pasha” working in “Affectionately Yours,” with Merle Oberon, Dennis Morgan and Rita Hayworth. The next day he would be “Peewee,” constant companion of James Cagney in “The Bride Came C.O.D.” Between times he was “Igor Propotkin,” the discouraged storekeeper at Sheepshead Bay in “Out of the Fog,” the powerful drama based on the play by Irwin Shaw. It is nothing new for Tobias to be several people almost simultaneously and to have several strange and nearly unpronounceable names at one time. Small wonder George Tobias is never sure of himself or of what his name is at any given moment. But whether he is “Peewee” or “Pappalas” he usually manages to be funny which is what Warner Bros. studios pay him to be. Teamed For Keeps Thomas Mitchell and John Qualen think they’re typed as an inseparable “couple.” Just as soon as they finished in Warner Bros. “Out of the Fog,” they start a picture at RKO, making the fourth in a row in which they’re pals before the cameras. “Angels Over Broadway” and “The Long Voyage Home” were the other two. 6 SHORT TAKES—— Real-Life Role? Over at Warner Bros. the “Out of the Fog” company was working on a set designed as a pier along the Sheepshead Bay waterfront. It was night—a foggy night. Two shabby old men, Thomas Mitchell and John Qualen were accosted by a sharp, nattily dressed gangster, in the person of John Garfield. Greedily he accepted a wad of bills, which he had demanded of them, and stuffed them in his wallet. “Nice wallet,” he said brashly. “Cost me $23.00. Genuine ostrich skin. Imagine, me,” he chuckled, “me, Harold Goff, little kid from the gutter, havin’ an ostrich skin wallet!” The director, Anatole Litvak called, “Cut!” whereupon Garfield turned around, and continued, “Or for that matter, Tola, imagine me, John Garfield, the terror of P.S. 5, having one!” An Accident, Of Course Thomas Mitchell doubts that he’ll ever hear the last of a laugh friends had at his expense one recent night. He invited five people to accompany him to “any nearby movie house” to see a picture or so, explaining that he specified a nearby house because his daily chores in Warner Bros.’ “Out of the Fog” meant that he couldn’t stay up late. “Now,” he quotes himself as saying, “‘let’s look at the paper and see what’s playing in the vicinity. We ought to be able to find some program that nobody’s seen—there are five good little theatres near here.” They checked the list, and then his friends began to guffaw. Every one of the five houses near his Pacific Palisades residence was playing a Thomas Mitchell picture! Got A Clean Break George Tobias, up to his neck in muddy trenches in “Sergeant York,” finally got his best break in a hectic two months of bicycling between the sets of various pictures. He was called back to the set of “Out of the Fog” to do a steam bath scene. They Filmed By Night Literally “shot in the dark” is Warner Bros.’ “Out of the Fog,” which is based on Irwin Shaw’s great play, “The Gentle People.” Ninety percent of the film is composed of night scenes, and the rest of murky daylight and fog.
