HOLLYWOOD — Mary Pickford tells me the new musical version of “Rain” is not the first Broadway show in which she has been financially interested. “I angeled ‘New Faces,’ ” she said, “out of which came Henry Fonda, Tyrone Power and Gypsy Rose Lee — none of whom did badly, you’ll admit.”

Mary hopes to go to New York for the opening of “Rain,” which will star Ethel Merman, when it makes its appearance under the name “Sadie Thompson.”
