ROBERT CLEMMONSand JOE SILVERMAN, both of Texas, who are in New York buying product, have extended their stay.
• • • LOOKS AS if feature production in the East is off
to a new and promising start at least so far as indie
production is concerned for Bud Pollard has started
shooting his thrill pix, "The Horror" over at the Atlas
Studio in Long Island City this being the first big production for Atlas at their new headquarters where they
have every modern technical facility for handling any type of feature for the independent producer
• • • THIS IS the first of a series of six Bud Pollard "exploitation features". . . to be made at this Eastern stude
which Bud has scheduled to shoot in record time so we
got Mister Pollard's slant on this rather significant campaign of Eastern production of features for if it proves a successful proposition in terms of the box-office it means that
a lot of other independent producers are going to shoot right
here in the East for, after all, New York has always
been conceded certain definite advantages over Hollywood
but let Bud tell it in his own words
• • • "I WAS all set to go to Hollywood for this series of six features when I discovered a studio right here in
Long Island that had every facility as all my features
are exploitation specials that is. novelties planned for
exploitation angles in which I will use a lot of theatrical
talent that I cannot get on the West Coast for instance,
in 'The Horror' I am using five different people who are in New
York stage productions they double up with me in their
stage work they get a break and I get talent
that I could not get in Hollywood."
• • • WE WITNESSED shooting start yesterday on Bud's
feature with five complete sets up in two days
and we never saw a studio crew move as speedily and efficiently
as these boys for all the union lads realize that here
is their chance to prove that an indie producer can get service
in the East and if they establish that fact it
means more work for them from other producers sold on
the idea that Eastern production is possible at a saving in time and dough and why not? 3,000 miles
is a helluva distance for a guy to go for Service when
he can get it a coupla miles from his home office
• • • HAIL TO Hal! after establishing himself in this village as an after-dinner speaker a raconteur
a wit a facile flipper of facetious fancies Hal
Home, advertising chief of United Artists has at last
been recognized by his own industry as a gent who can
grace a speaker's table as well as an advertising copy desk. . . . so they unanimously voted him new prexy of the AMPAS
* * * *
• • • SO IT'S a foregone conclusion that the AMPA is in
for one of its most brilliant seasons with Hal in the chair
a gent who is beloved and respected by everybody
and who knows everybody in the amusement world he
can line up some guests of honor that will have the S.R.O.
sign out at the weekly luncheons but we're laying a
bet right now that none of the honored guests will out
shine Hal when it comes to passing out the bon mots
he looms up as the logical successor to the late Harry
Reichenbach as the Wit of the Industry yet a
guy who can make a serious and constructive address also
as his speech of acceptance clearly proved

cast the shows just like Broadway productions, according to Turner. Lower admission prices of the movie houses, together with the grind policy and absence of the reserved seat idea, are figured as factors in favor of drawing the public.
