  • Description

    Veteran American film star, John Wayne flew into Singapore recently for a three-day stay as part of his "see the Orient" tour.

    Full of enthusiasm for the girls in Bali when he'd come Wayne also quickly made friends with Malay star Zaita, Marrianne and Hasimah. The Malay stars who'd met Wayne at the Airport, showed Wayne around Singapore. Relaxed on a private beach with a disused British machinegun nest as a backdrop, Wayne's private Colombo Plan was given full marks by the Asian stars.

    At a cocktail party in his honour, Wayne met "Malaya's Marilyn Monroe" - singer Saloma.

    At the party arranged by Mr. Run Run Shaw of Singapore's Shaw Brothers Film Organisation, Wayne made friends with his fans, consisting of the many races who go to make up the present-day Malaya.
