HOLLYWOOD, May 19 — Don Ameche and Twentieth Century-Fox are parting company. After a series of conferences failed to bring about an agreement, Don decided to move to another studio. His contract expires the last of June.

This news comes as something of a surprise, since Don has been with Twentieth for eight years. The only other pictures he made were when he has been on loan out.

Don was a radio star when he joined the Fox co. and has had some of their most important vehicles, perhaps the most important being “Heaven Can Wait.” He still has two unreleased pictures, “Greenwich Village” and “A Wing and a Prayer.”
