HARRISON CARROLL Receives Award - by Dorothy Manners

01h Photos: Speaking of old friends, Harrison Carroll was very much on hand for the press party hosted by John Wayne at the Marquis Restaurant. Occasion of the get-together was the presentation of the Harrison Carroll Cinema Press Prize -- which didn't seem as important as all the old friends milling around and telling one another how great everybody looks.
Julian Myers, who started at 20th Century Fox in 1948, recalls Archerd's pre-Variety stint as "leg man" for Los Angeles Herald-Express columnist Harrison Carroll.

/1971tviPcov03q27a300w.jpgFeature Story About "The Hollywood Scene"
By John Austin / An Ex-columnist Shows His Class;
IRONY . . . for more than forty years, Harrison Carroll and his column in the Herald-Express -- now the Herald-Examiner -- was a fixture in our town. Press agents, stars, men-about-town, starlets and hangers on couldn't do enough for Harrison He was wined, dined and catered to. It was all part of the job for an entertainment columnist in Los Angeles in the halycon days of the business, and then the transitional movie-to-television era. Harrison took it in his stride, never abused it and, naturally, enjoyed it. He always paid his dues in return.
Unless they deserved it, Harrison never wrote a harsh word about anyone in a career-destroying style. He was always available to listen to anyone who needed their name in print in order to help them and move them one run closer to the top of the ladder. Unlike many if his ilk. Harrison always checked out a controversial story and listened to both sides before he put it in print. He never took anyone's word for it. There were (and still are) many people in this town who try to "plant" phony stories to further their own career or hurt someone else's. It's par for the course in this business. Someone is always standing behind you with a hatchet up their sleeves.
Since he retired from the Herald -- and not by his own choosing -- Harrison has become almost a forgotten man in this town. A telephone which used to ring every two or three minutes, now rings every two or three days. He is no longer wined and dined except, occasionally, by a press agent who never forgets old friends. Unfortunately, far too many of them have forgotten Harrison Carroll.
But, in his own way, Harrison has not forgotten them entirely, rather, his former colleagues in the industry. Last Thursday at the Martoni-Marquis, Harrison Carroll announced that he was endowing a permanent Cinema Reporting Prize Foundation for entertainment columnists throughout the country. To fund the Endowment, Harrison has pledged as collateral his memoirs (which will not be published until after his death -- so you can breathe easier) his fantastic photograph collection, and his other memorabilia collected over forty years.
Three prizes of $5,000, $3,000 and $2,000 will be awarded starting next February - and hopefully on a national telecast -- to the best entertainment columnist as voted by stars and executives in the entertainment business.

/armyarcherd108w.jpg3. Editor's Note / Army Archerd the "leg man". . .
Julian Myers, who started at 20th Century Fox in 1948, recalls Archerd's pre-Variety stint as "leg man" for Los Angeles Herald-Express columnist Harrison Carroll. "Army was the consummate interviewer," Myers says, "a handsome young man, very accessible.
"Army came out to Fox every Friday. I was assigned to take him to all the shooting stages. The actors looked forward to Army's visits because they would read in Carroll's column something interesting and honest about them."
Aug. 31, 2005 / Veteran "Tonight Show" publicist Charlie Barrett remembers when press-shy Johnny Carson was about to celebrate his 25th anniversary on NBC in 1987. Carson left a message: "I'm not doing any interviews, because if I do one, I'll have to do them all. But if Army calls, I'll speak to him."
That sums up Army Archerd's clout in the biz rather nicely. Longtime publicists -- most of whom were once known as "press agents" -- are unanimous in their praise for the Daily Variety columnist.

"TODYA'S PUZZLE: What Hollywood beauty's wealthy father will disinherit her if she marries the actor she has been dating for a long time?"
••• That was the last "Puzzle" in the final column written by Harrison Carroll on April 1, 1969 that ended a 47-year career as a newspaperman, 43 of them as a columnist.
••• During those 47 years he wrote about Hollywood and its motion picture stars, especially in his column, a great favorite with the people he wrote about because of his integrity and fairness. He had four telephones at his home, and it wasn't unusual for 200 calls to be logged during a single day from persons in the industry, calling him from all over the world despite the hour of the day--and night.
••• Carroll was born in Waco, Texas, one June 23, 1901. He was educated at Waco High School, Rice Institute and Columbia University, receiving his Bachelor of Arts degree from the latter in 1922. He came to Los Angeles the same year and went to work for The Times as a general reporter for $25 a week. His forte was Hollywood and its mushrooming film industry. His coverage of the Charles Chaplin and Rita Gray romance saw him score repeated scoops, impressing the rival Los Angeles Examiner.
••• He went to work for the Examiner in 1925 and the very next year shifted to the Evening Herald as drama editor. Three months later he started his column, which at first featured one or two stars. The format soon changed to a news-type column, but not the sensational gossip kind often filled with false information and innuendos. Carroll's news was authentic, honest and fair. His style was marked by an intimate touch with short and to the point sentences.
••• He was widely read, particularly when the Central Press Association syndicated his column in 48 newspapers. He battled - in print - many noted contemporaries: Walter Winchell, Jimmy Starr (also of the Herald staff), Louella Parsons and Hedda Hopper, to name a few. And although all his rivals made friendships with the screen idols of millions, Carroll had a closer rapport because of his credo to never hurt anyone. The closest he came to breaking it was once he started his "Today's Puzzle," the punch of his column. But he never revealed his characters - even to this day!
••• "I like Hollywood people," he once told an interviewer. "They don't have to worry about me. I give them everyJosieCoryCPawards108w.jpg break I can. I don't write a bitchy column. In fact, he turned down invitations to parties, pointing out that if he were at one and something happened and he reported it he would feel he had violated his host's hospitality. Carroll preferred to gather his own news by personal contact over the telephone or at night spots, "The Daisy" being one of his favorite haunts.
His friendship with the stars were life-long lasting and has included the unknown bit players as well as those whose names were flashed in large letters on the theatre marques. John Wayne is one who insists Carroll helped him not only to get started, but also with his screen name. A frequent caller was the late Clark Gable. Clara Bow in her flapper days was close to the writer. And the list could go on, and on, and on, infinitum.
••• When susbcribers learned of his retirement, thousands cancelled their subscriptions to the paper. He has been living with his second wife, Maria, quietly in Los Angeles residence of 46 years. Carroll has one son by his first wife, Corrinne. The son is in business in Los Angeles.
--The Harrison Carroll Cinema Reporting Prize Foundation, July 1971.
