INGO FIGHTS IN HOLLYWOOD

The machine-gunner is a big, good-looking Swede farm kid from Minnesota. He doesn't talk much, and that's good casting, for the gunner is Ingemar Johansson and he didn't get that accent on the shores of Lake Minnetonka.

The champ came to Hollywood last week off a triumphant singing engagement on the Dinah Shore show to fight as a marine (Ingo was in the Swedish navy) in Columbia's Korean war film All the Young Men, starring Alan Ladd and Sidney Poitier. The verdict: "The kid's obviously short on technique, but he's intelligent, sensitive and malleable enough to be a pretty fair actor."

Besides working at the gym and mastering Los Angeles' infernal traffic in a rented car, Ingo engaged in verbal sparring with a fellow Thespian, Archie Moore (SI, Oct. 12). Jabbed Ingo: "You look pretty good for a man who was fighting before I was born." Countered Arch: "No, no, lad—only since you were 2."
