WHITTLE WHILE THEY WORK

Richard Haydn (L), English musical comedy star, and Gary Cooper, players in Samuel Goldwyn’s “Ball of Fire,” do their bit for British War Relief between scenes at the studio.  Cooper is a whiz at whittling out torpedo boats to be sold at auction; Haydn is an expert at totem poles.
