Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - December 30, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Mon., Dec. 30, 1974 Television Today By B«b Themas Mike Douglas Producing Film KOS ANGELES (AP) -What do television series stars do during their betwwn-season vacations? In the case of Michael Douglas, he’s producing a (3-million movie. The talented son of Kirk Douglas finished his third season of “The Streets of San Francisco’' this month. In January he starts producing “One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest”, starring Jack Nicholson and directed by Milos Forman. The film will be made almost entirely at the Oregon State mental hospital at Salem. Young Douglas. 30. is an example of a modem maverick working inside the establishment. 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 Hero'” and “Summertree”, accepted the second lead to Karl Malden in ABC’s “Streets of San Francisco". The attar 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 arid mold his career. “But when I went to New York in IMM, there was no theater. I 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 I figured the best way to move my gireer along was to get into a TY series.’’ The first season of “Streets" was a ratings disappointment for ABC and a personal one for Michael Douglas. The show languished in the Nielsen cellar until the network switched it from Saturday 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 actdV observed. “I finally told Quinn that I wanted out unless I had more* to do He was understanding, and it has worked out so I have a show, Karl has a show, then we do one together. It s good for us, and geed for the series His admiration for Malden is boundless — “his energy is amazing; like my father, he has a kind of peasant drive that is peculiar to their generation.” Energy is needed for “The Strelets of San Francisco”. The se*rie»s is shot entire-ly in the bay city from May to December on a six-day week. instead of the usual five days in Hollywoed. “One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest" has a long history, dating back to 1963, when Kirk Douglas starred in the Broadway play. It had a one-month run, but was nett a success. “People came out of the play loving it," said Michael, “but they told their friends. ‘It s okay — if you like laughing at crazy people.’ Attitudes toward mental i!lne*ss were different the*n.” The Dale \\ assertion play later had its vindication, esjx*-cially in San Francisco where it has been running for more than five years Another company is now doing the show at the Huntington Hartford theater in Hollywood. Kirk Douglas bought the movie rights and twice neared production, but the deals fell through.

Htriv Faa, k IM AN Iii Spirit of British: It Never Flags or Fails Bv Bob (onsidine NEW YORK — The British have a marvelous ability to turn the meanest setbacks into a reaffirmation of their eternal faith that they eventually will prevail — God being an Englishman, as everyone knows. Harrods, London s magnificent all-purpose department store, is as commercially lie-loved by the British as the cathedral at Coventry was re-v ered The cathedral was razed by Nazi Immbs during the Battle of Britain. Harrods was blasted just before Christmas by the nut wing of the Irish Republican Army, a splinter movement which Mieves such cowardly attacks on peaceful citizens are the best way of forcing the Crown to pull out of l ister Neither attack worked A new cathedral reaches up from the debris of the old one. and Harrods n*o|>ened its doors in a jiffy or two and continued to offer just about everything a person could want — including, it is said. “his" and “her” elephants. * Dear Did England” “The store is as busy as ev er." one of its executives said contentedly as his eye roamed over the crowded floor. Then. with wonderful predictability, he addl'd a line that might have come from Churchill or King Arthur, “Dear old England, bless her.” One doesn’t hear a New Yorker or a Detroiter say, as the homicide figures nudge toward the thousand mark, "That’s America for you! Lord love her!” If memory serves, nobody in Saigon used to break into I hat country’s national anthem during the days when the Viet Cong were rolling grenades down the aisles at a children’s movie. At the risk of starting my dear old grandfather from County Clare a-spmmng in his grave, it must be said that the British are right about themselves: they an* indtxd something special within the human species. Churchill |H*rhaps lx*d summed up their eternal optimism in his speech in commons in June, 1940. as several hundred thousand British troops wen* being kicked off the beaches of Dunkirk. They Did “We shall not flag or fail,” he said. as the sound of flag ging and failing grew louder. “We shall fight in France,” he went on. above the roar of the British fleeing from France “We shall fight on the seas and oceans (with those rusty over-aged ll. S. destroyers0) and wi* shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air. (They did’) “We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight in the fields (with pitchforks?) and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills, we shall never surrender.” 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 boar ourselves that, if the British Empire and its commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say ‘This was their finest hour ' ” Sense of Humor Obviously, it was not their finest hour It was their paralyzing hour. They stood alone that day in June, 1949 — a long vear and a-half before they won the full muscle of the I S. more by an accident of judgment in the Pacific than any design in tin* Atlantic. The British brought a wry sense of humor to the cruelest war in their history. A helmeted warden, poking through the ruins of a bombed-out house, came on an old woman covered with the rums of plaster, dishes and whatnot. “Are you all right, Mum?” he asked. “Certainly,” she said, 'as you can see.” "Where s the old man?” “The bloody coward is serving at the front." she said, dusting herself. Fleet Street I'hen the Luftwaffe made tin* mistake of bombing Fleet street, as if to make it stop quoting Churchill’s blasts. (“This wicked man Hitler, the repository and embodiment of many forms of soul-destroying hatr<*d, this monstrous product of former wrongs and shame”) The bombs blew in the windows and walls of some of the world’s lx*st newspapers. But the spirit of Harrod^ stood firm. The following day, one of thus*' (Killers tarried a front-page headline. It read BOMB IYH RFI) IN FALL ON FLEET STREET.

Ile also says (Mirk, 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 Butz is contained in an interview published Sunday in U.S' News and World Report. In it, Butz says the department has “hope that food prices may tend to level off — if we get good growing weather and get inflation under control." He said food prices for the first six months of 1975 will continue to rise at about the same pace as in 1974 — an annual rate of 15 percent that he said was caused mainly by higher processing and distributing costs for food 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 Ik* able to have stable grocery prices “if President Ford is successful in turtling this double-digit inflation."
