1957: Collins gets bungalow at 20th-Fox

Jan. 30, 1957

GOOD MORNING: Joan Collins inherits Ty Power’s old dressing room at 20th-Fox. Power may be back on the lot if he okays a deal for “Destruction Test” at his alma mater … Cary Grant may linger at 20th after “Love Affair” for “Kiss Them For Me.” Same pic, Dan O’Herlihy’s hot for the role of the RAF officer … Gene Kelly moved in with buddy Saul Chaplin while Betsy Blair’s in town and in the big house … Jayne Mansfield, who apparently is out to win a title for most public appearances, will be Queen of the Palm Springs Golden Nugget Ball. (2006 update: Joan Collins is readying to go on the road, touring with her fellow “Dynasty” diva Linda Evans in “Legends” produced by Collins’ husband Percy Gibson. As for that dressing room at 20th: the “Stars Building” in the contract era had dressing rooms for the likes of Power, Betty Grable and Marilyn Monroe. It is Building 86, which now houses the domestic distribution home office of 20th Century Fox films. Some of the offices still have showers and their own bathrooms. In the 1930s, dressing rooms were bungalows. Shirley Temple and Will Rogers both had ’em; Shirley’s bungalow became the nurse’s station, which still stands … And as for Jayne: She is being remembered today with the release (by Fox Home Entertainment) of “The Jayne Mansfield Collection,” a DVD of three of her films, “The Girl Can’t Say No,” “Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter,” and “The Sheriff of Fractured Jaw.” Daughter Mariska Hargitay, of course, stars in “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.”
