Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - November 11, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Mon., November ll, 1974 'Squeeze Is on' To Cut TV Production Time (Continued from Page I.) placed the business in an acute crisis situation. That crisis-time is here is a sentiment felt by every production firm in the business. According to some, it’s already beginning to affect the quality Of the product. Award-winning producer Richard Levinson Ire ports, “The squeeze is on us to cut down on production time — because time means money. I When Levenson and partner William Link made the Emmy-winning 1 TV film “My Sweet Charlie” with Patty Duke six years ago, “We had a week for rehearsals. ‘ When we made ‘That Certain Summer’ two years ago, we had two-davs rehearsal time. Now we have none — we barely have time to film the script. Last year We were given 21 days to produce ‘The Execution of Private Slovik’. ‘The Gun’ — a TV movie we made this fall - had to be rushed through production in a week and a half.” 1    » Even with savagely slashed shooting schedules, the long-form dramatic show has become a gigantic loser for the studios. Networks will subsidize a television movie for some $150,000 to $75,000 less than it costs the studio to make it. To (cover the difference. the studio must go into deficient financing and wait until the network has had a chance to air the feature twice (for a maximum period of 18 months) before they get the negative back and can hope to pay back interest and principal on the original loan through syndication sale or overseas theatrical Release. “We are definitely at a crisis point,” agrees Frank Price, President of Universal Studios Television. “At this time producing firms lire simply not making deals with networks —and won’t until the networks come up with money figures that make sense. Something must be done, because the suppliers are in bad shape, and the networks must realize that to maintain quality we need more money, not less. There s no way we can make a series like 'Kojak’ for less than we're making it now. Unless the situation eases, the only solution will be to shift to shows that require less production.” And so, as it looks now, television could be sliding swiftly from a state of dreary' to dreadful. Variety shows will flood the tube next year because variety shows are cheap. And cheaper than variety offers are quiz shows and game shows and panel shows like “To Tell the Truth” and “Mike Stokev’s House Party”. Where It Began Which is where, conceivably, home entertainment could ond up if times get bad enough, back to where it all began several decades ago . . . w hen TV was an infant and the networks were grasping to find direction for a form that was to grow within 25 years into the most powerful communicator ever known to mankind. ... that would find more than 250 million sets around the world in 1974, and a potential TV audience bf over 900 million persons . I. . that would reach a state where a situation comedy ( “All in the Family”) would be seen in a week by more people than had seen the most popular motion picture of all time (“The Godfather”) during its three-year run in theaters around the world. We've come to take tor granted such things as satellite coverage of news and sporting events, penetrating investigative documentaries, multimillion dollar long-form productions such as “The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman” and “QB-VII1” - such spectacular programming treats interspersed between the daily diet of bland video fare that pays the network’s bills. Golden Era Such gourmet video fare, some studio heads predict, could be on the way out and, far-out as it seems — by 1975 we might be looking back upon the lackluster season of turning. The public is rejecting new shows at a taste t rate than they ever have before — and facts and figures indicate they’ll be. rejecting TV products even faster in upcoming months as telo\ ision feels the effect of the economic pinch. The public is finding there is an alternative to watching bad TV: good movies. A world-wide love affair with motion pictures has begun — and from the way things look now it could conceivably be the big screen side of the industry that once again keeps Hollywood afloat. From the way* that big screen side is currently acting, and reacting to the recession by throwing money about, youd think that day was already here.

Those who’ve got it are spending it —• and retail businesses that cater to the stars are reporting » a bannerline year. Scott:U.S. in Recession, Ford Should Admit It PHILADELPHIA (UPI)-Senate Minority Leader Hugh Scott Monday said he believes the U.S. is in a recession and he does not understand why the White House is reluctant to admit it. “I think that one can only candidly say that we are in a recession,” Scott said in an interview in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “I can’t quite understand the White House reluctance to actually call this what it 5s,” Scott Sd the Post-Gazette. “I think the sooner we admit it’s a recession the earlier we have a chance to get out of it, because the existence of the fact presents the necessity for the solutions ” Scott, who celebates his 74th birthday Monday, said if President Ford and congress sucess-flilly cooperate on the problem “We should see the rate of inflation fall from llVfe percent perhaps to 8 or 8l* percent sometime in the third quarter of next year.” The newspaper quoted Scott as saying the international oil shortage was “probably the most important domestic factor.” He said the three major causes of the current inflation were the costs of the Vietnam Dole: Ford Must Stop Inflation To Win in 76 Lawyer: Colley Feels Army Discharge Void COLUMBUS, Ga.

He also predicted there will namese civilians at My Lai in 1968. His lawyers said Sunday that Calley’s next legal step will be to inform the army this week that he still considers himself a lieutenant in the U.S. army and is available for duty. Voided Discharge The army discharged Calley be cabinet changes in the near test spring. But his lawyers con- future, saying, “Many (cabinet members) plan to leave in the spring.” He did not elaborate. Meanwhile, Senator-elect John Glenn (D-Ohio) said on the NBC program “Meet the Press” that he did not view the increase in Democratic control of congress as “any huge Democratic mandate to take over the country ... “It was repudiation of some of the things they had seen going on last year,” said Glenn. In another development, California Gov. Reagan said in an interview with “U.S. News & World tend that the discharge was a Germans Hunt Judge's Slayer BERLIN (AP) — Police were searching Monday for about half a dozen members of a gang w’ho shot to death Guenter von Drenkmann, Berlin’s top judge, at his home Sunday night.

Police said they could not exclude t he possibility that the shooting was connected with the death of a leftist prisoner here on Saturday. The prisoner, Hol-ger Meins, 33, a member (rf the Baader-Meinhof gang, died after a two-month-long hunger strike to protest cruelty by prison authorities. Authorities said Meins’ death was from the effects of his fasting although he had been artificially nourished. Mud Slide Kills Five Miners JOHANNESBURG, South Afri-ca (AP)—Hundreds of tons of mud Monday washed down a shaft at the Impala Platinum mine, the world’s second biggest, killing at least seven miners, a company spokesman said. A spokesman said the dead included two white miners and “not less than” five black min-.    _ # ers, but he denied reports that On PriSOnGrS 2,000 to    3,000 miners    were! tapped.    I    BANGKOK    (UPI)-    Guards at An Impala official said the: Thailand s lard \ao prison Mon-slime poured into the shaft after day opened fire on 3,000 inmates heavy rains caused a dam to w^° staged a demonstration to burst at the mine in Bafokeng, demand general amnesty, near Rustenburg IOO miles from A UPI photographer said as bere    I    many as    30 prisoners    may have The official said    the    mud caused “considerable damage” to surface installations. Thai Guards Fire result of his conviction; the con viction was unconstitutional; therefore, it would appear that all things proceeding from the conviction are likewise unconstitutional,” said J. Houston Gordon, one of Calley s lawyers. Gordon said Sunday that Calley will give the army a chance to call him back to active duty before he seeks other employment to avoid prejudicing any future claims he may have on back pay, benefits or damages for three years in jail on a con viction which later was reversed. If Calley ultimately is cleared by higher courts, Gordon said it is almost definite Calley will take legal action seeking back pay, allowances “and anything else to which he may be due ” However, Kenneth Henson, another Calley lawyer, said Calley has no desire to go into the army “as far as I know.” Appellate Level The Fifth Court of Appeals in New Orleans will consider in February the army’s appeal of the reversal of Calley’s court martial conviction. Both sides say they' will go to the U.S. supreme court if they lose at the appellate level. But Gordon, noting that the army plans to parole Calley on Nov. 19, says, “even if the appeals court overturns Elliott’s reversal, Calley will never again have to face confinement.” Meanwhile, his lawyers say that Calley plans to settle down in Columbus, an army town near Ft. Benning, where “no one considers him unusual.” Henson said, “He just wants to be left alone to live the life of an ordinary citizen.” The army offered at Saturday’s bail hearing to put Calley on immediate parole status. Earlier, Army Secretary’ Howard Callaway had announced he planned to parole Calley Nov. 19, the date on which he would have completed one-third of his reduced 10-year sentence. Gordon wanted to know whether the army would retain control over Calley if he was paroled. Army attorney Arnold Vickery said it would and Gordon shook his head.
