Well, How Do You Handle a Girl Like This?

She'll get up in the middle of a dinner party, put a record on the radiogram full blast and, in front of her amazed guests, dance around the room like a character out of 'West Side Story'.

She'll burst into the sedate atmosphere of the studio restaurant, singing at the top of her voice, and shatter the thoughts of directors and producers bowed over their scripts.

She'll yell at you one minute and smother you with kisses the next. Ann-Margret will, in fact, do many unusual things if the mood takes her - and more often than not it does.

"Annie," said one recent date, "is irrepressible. You never know what she is going to do or say. But she's the only girl I know who can be feminine and still make a man blush. She is also the hottest property in Hollywood."

If you think Ann-Margret's date was exaggerating with that last remark I have news for you. He wasn't. Things have happened since Annie made State Fair and, if you don't believe it, ask Elvis Presley.

When his film, 'Love In Las Vegas', was showing at a New York cinema recently, they cut his name off the posters and sold the film completely on Ann-Margret. Which was an astonishing thing to happen.

Now she has a list of films waiting to be made that reads like a 'phone directory. She's completed 'Kitten With A Whip' and 'The Pleasure Seekers' and now she's ready to face 'The Cincinatti Kid', in which she stars with Steve McQueen and Spencer Tracy. After that she makes 'Scratch A Thief', with top French star Alain Delon, and then it's Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra who win her talents for 'Community Property'. The hottest star in Hollywood? Ann-margret is more than that. She is also a personality of stunning force.

"She breaks all the rules," says her studio publicity man. "She says a aIl the wrong things, but so nicely."

"Trylng to keep that gIrl down with a firm hand is like trying to put out a forest fire with a soda-syphon," says Elvis Presley.

Annie is never dull in a film, that's for sure. She injects as much life into the characters she plays as she does when she's simply' playing herself.

"You don't try to handle a girl like Ann-Margret," says Frank Sinatra. "At tImes she may be exasperating, but if she weren't she wouldn't be what she is - a full-blooded personality with a lot of talent. She enjoys herself, but why shouldn't she?" . Why, Indeed!
