    • News item: There is a possibility that Burt Lancaster, who produced "Bird Man of Alcatraz" may decide to stop Hope from doing the skit. If he does, they'll substitute an old taped routine. This would be unfortunate for Hope lavished a great deal of time and money on the "Bird Brain of Alcatraz" skit - he had more than 200 birds on the premises.
