BIG, BIG SEARCH TO FIND A DOUBLE FOR JUNEJune Wilkinson 1964

THERE was quite a search — across five continents, in fact — to find a substitute for British-born actress June Wilkinson, who was quitting a show.
It wasn't the fact 23-year-old June was blonde, with blue eyes, that worried the producers of the American stage musical "Pajama Tops."
It was her vital statistics — 43-20-36.

They had to find someone who could measure up to the role that June had so curvily created.
When hope was beginning to fade, they thought of another British beauty — Sabrina, the 42-18-35 blonde.

Last night Sabrina, 26, had taken over June's part in "Pajama Tops," which began an American, tour. And June was back home with her parents at Eastbourne, having a holiday.

June, pictured at home last night, said: "Those odd inches between us made a difference. When Sabrina tried on my costumes they didn't fit She had new ones."

June, a window-cleaner's daughter, went to Hollywood to find fame six years ago, She has been with "Pajama Tops" for over two years.
Why has June quit? She has a part in a new Hollywood film called "The Candidate."
