HOLLYWOOD, May 15 —  A year ago Dick Haymes sat on a park bench in New York and wondered how he was going to support his wife and baby. Today he is to have the lead opposite Betty Grable in “Diamond Horseshoe” when it goes before the cameras Aug. 1. That is an assignment any actor would welcome because Betty’s movies are tops at the box office.

After Darryl Zanuck took a look at Dick in “Irish Eyes Are Smiling,” he ordered retakes and added scenes. He realized he had something in Haymes who, in addition to that golden voice, has turned out to be quite an actor.
