Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - December 30, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 8 The Cedar Rapids Curette: Mon., Dec. 3B, 1874 Television Today By Bob Mike Douglas Producing Film LOS ANCELES (AP) What do television series stars do during their between-sea- son vacations? In the case of Michael Douglas, he's produc- ing a movie. The talented son of Kirk Douglas finished his third sea- son of "The Streets of San Francisco" this month. In January he starts producing "One Flew over the Cuckoo's starring Jack Nichol- son and directed by Milos For- man. The film will be made almost entirely at the Oregon Slate mental hospital at Sal- em. Young Douglas, is an ex- ample of a modern maverick working inside the establish- ment. It seemed inevitable that he would go into acting his mother. Diana Dill, is an actress, and his father is one of the screen's most durable stars. Some observers were surprised when Michael, who had played leads in movies such as "Hail and accepted the second lead to Karl Maiden in ABC's "Streets nf San Fran- Ihe Nielsen cellar until the network switched it from Sat- urday to Thursday night. Douglas himself lingered in the background until he made presentations to producer Quinn Martin. "During that first year I seemed to be taking one step forward and two steps back." the actoY observed. "1 finally told Quinn that 1 wanted out unless I had more to do. He was understanding, and it has worked out so 1 have a show, Karl has a show, then we do one together. It's good for us, and good for the series." His admiration for Maiden is boundless "his energy is amazing; like my father, he has a kind of peasant drive that is peculiar to their gener- ation." Energy is needed for "The Streets of San Francis- The series is shot entire- ly in the bay city from May to December on a six-day week, instead uf the usual five days in Hollywood. "One Flew over the Cuc- koo's Nest" has a long histo- ry, dating back to when Kirk Douglas starred in the Broadway play. It had a one- month run. but was not a suc- cess. The actor explained: "Back in my father's day, there was a normal progression for an actor's career. He could get his start on Broadway, then a studio would take him over and mold his career. "But when 1 went to New York in there was no theater. 1 did a little off- Broadway, then I made two or three pictures that didn't go. The studios don't put actors under contract anymore, so 1 figured the best way to move my Career along was to get in- to a TV scries." The first season of "Streets" was a ratings disap- pointment for ABC and a per- sonal one for Michael Doug- las. The show languished in "People came out ot the play UiMiig it." said Michael, "but they told their friends. 'It's okay if you like laugh- ing at crazy people.' Attitudes Inward mental illness were different then." The Dale Wassermau play- later had its vindication, espe- cially in San Francisco where it has been running for more than five years. Another com- pany is now doing the show at the HuntingUm .Hartford thea- ter in Hollywood. Kirk Douglas bought the movie rights and twice neared production, but the deals fell through.

The cathedral was by bombs dnrini; the Battle of Britain, llarrods was blast- ed just before Christmas by the nut wins nf the Irish He- publican Army, a splinter movement which believes such cowardly attacks on peaceful citizens are the best way of foroiiiK the Crown In puil out of Ulster. Neither attack worked. A new cathedral reaches up from the debris of the old one, and llarrods reopened its doors in a jiffy or two and con- tinued to offer just about every- thing a person could want including, it is said, "his" and "her" elephants. "Dear Old England" "The store is as busy as ev- one of its executives said contentedly as his eye roamed over the crowded floor.

At the risk of starting my dear old grandfather from County Clare u-spinuing in his grave, it must be said that the British are right about them- selves: they are indeed some- thing special within the hu- man species. Churchill perhaps best summed up their eternal opti- mism in his speech ill com- mons in .Hmc, as several hundred thousand British troops were being kicked off the beaches of Dunkirk.

"We shall fight on the seas and oceans (with those rusty over-aged U. S. destroy- and we shall fight with growing confidence and grow- ing strength in the air. (They "We shall defend our is- land, whatever the cost may be. we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight in the fields (with and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never sur- render." His words still raise goose- bumps on the hide of a reader. So does his "Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that, if the British Empire and its commonwealth last for a thou- sand years, men will still say: 'This was their finest hour.'

"Certainly." she said, "as you can see." "Where's the old man'.'" "The bloody coward is serv- ing at the she said, dusting herself. Fleet Street Butz Says Food Prices Will Continue To Rise WASHINGTON (AP) Ag- riculture Secretary Hutu says food prices will continue to rise for at least six more months, al an annual rale of 15 percent. lie also says pork, poultry and egg prices will cost more, but that beef "is selling for less than a year ago and will continue to do so." This forecast by is con- tained in an interview pub- lished Sunday in News and World Hcporl. In it. says the department has "hope that food prices may tend to level off if we gel good growing weather and gel inflation under control." He said food prices for the firsl six months of will continue to rise at about the same pace as in 1974 an an- nual rate of II) percent thai he said was caused mainly by higher processing and distrib- uting costs for fowl. Butz said that only one-fifth of the food price increase resulted from higher prices paid to farmers. He said the U.S. will more likely be able to have stable grocery prices "if President Ford is successful in curbing this double-digit inflation." Call far Meeting On Cordova Shutdowns CAMANC1IE Two eastern Iowa state legislators have railed an informational meeting here .Ian. 7 on the re- cent scries of shutdowns at the Cordova, 111 nuclear power generating station.
