Annette – will she be another Elizabeth Taylor?
Diminutive Annette Funicello, a black-haired bundle of seemingly inexhaustible nervous energy, can get tired just like the rest of the human race.

THE 18-year-old brunette actress, dancer, and singer discovered this during her strenuous recent months in England and Europe filming "The Horsemasters," her biggest acting assignment to date.

As a result of her labors abroad. Annette asked for and got a three weeks' holiday on her return to California from her boss, Walt Disney, who holds an exclusive contract on her services for television and films.

She immediately took off for "parts unknown." This week she is due to report back to the Disney studio in Burbank, California, and is expected to go into the new film "Babes in Toyland," a movie version of the immortal Victor Herbert operetta.

Annette, who graduated from Disney's "Mouseketeer" group, is one of the brightest young dancing, singing, and acting stars in Hollywood.
