Robert Walker to Play Collegiate Baby Sitter

After completing all those show tunes (as Jerome Kern in “Till Clouds Roll By”) and all those symphonies and lieder (as Johannes Brahms in “Song of Love”) Robert Walker deserves a respite. M.G.M. thinks so, too. Bob, it announced yesterday, will go back to the comparatively uncomplicated state of being an ex-G.I. in his very next picture.

The part, in a sort of Pvt. Hargrove-ish vein, will be that of a soldier who returns to college, taking a job as a baby sitter on the side. When the baby's parents are killed, Bob really has his hands full. But his reconversion is accomplished.

Vehicle is “A Quarter for an Angel,” by I. A. R. Wylie. It will be produced by Edwin Knopf.

When Bob Walker was too ill to play the reporter-press agent in “State of the Union ,” I thought Metro would send for Myron McCormick, who did such a superb job with the part on Broadway. But, no. The No. 4 part in the picture has been handed to Van Johnson, who is less like a reporter than anyone I know.
