FRIDAY, APRIL 6, 1973 LISTINGS FOR SATURDAY, APRIL 7 TO FRIDAY, APRIL 13 rsii 7 I he last hanging This Melancholy Occasion, a drama chronicing'the last fate- ful hours in the life of Patrick Whelan convicted assassin of Thomas D'Arcy McGee will be seen Wednesday, April 11 at p.m. on the CBC television network. The CBC Ottawa pro- duction recreates the last pub- lic haiie'tig in Canadian history. McGee, a Father of Confed- eration and one of the most brilliant orators in Canadian parliamentary history, was shot at the door of his Sparks Street rooming after returning from a late sitting of the House of Commons. Whelan, a young Irish Canadian who worked in an Ottawa tailor's shop, was quickly arrested, tried, and ex- ecuted before a crowd of five thousand people in the last pub- lic hanging in the country. He went to his death protesting liis innocence. The half-hour drama is not intended as a statement on the pros and cons of capital punish- ment, but rather to illustrate a little-known, grim sidelight in Canadian history. Robert D. Clark, tihe film's producer, spent many hours locating and exam- ining newspapers with re- ports of the actual hanging while CBC set decorators and staging personnel restored the essential parts of Ottawa's old Nicholas Street jail. The chap- el, death row, the gallows and their interconnecting pas- sages were returned, as nearly as possible, to their century-old condition. Mother Nature add- ed to the realism for the out- door sequences on the gallows with a fresh snow fall almost identical to the one at the tune of the hanging a century ago. Striving further for perfec- tion, director Brian OrLeary filmed the drama in black and white to emphasize the reality of the prison. grim The Streets Of San Francisco Karl Maiden above co-stars with Mike Douglas as Detective Lieutenant Mike Stone in "The Streets Of San Francisco" Thursdays at 9 p.m. on ChannsI 13. Hybrid camera car used for 'Frisco street scenes A specially designed camera car which steminsd from a suggestion by Karl Maiden is used for much of the cinemato- graphy on the CTV Television Network's "The Streets of San Francisco." Maiden, who stars in the hour action series about two mem- bers of the Bureau of Inspec- tors Division of the San Fran- cisco Police Department, with Michael Douglas as his young associate, made the suggestion about hiding the camera in some kind of conveyance to ex- Hurt Reynolds at home after hernia operation HOLLYWOOD (Reuter) Aclor Burt Reynolds, 37, was convalescing in his Hollywood Hills home today following surgery to correct a hernia which raptured while he was doing a scene in the film The Man Wlw Loved Cat Danc- ing. Reynolds underwent surgery Saturday, a spokesman said. Reynolds suffered the injury early last week on location at St. George, Utah. Reynolds returned home Sun- day night and was reported in excellent condition. A spokes- man said he plans to return to work next Monday. ecutive producer Quinn Martin shortly after production began. Filming on the crowded streets of a bustling city like San Francisco presented many problems. Onlookers would gather every time the obvious camera truck would hove into view and production was often slowed to a halt. The project was turned over to George B. Chan, art direc- tor on the series, who took his problem to a trailer company in Los Angeles. The result is a hybrid vehicle. The front is a brown duplicate of an unmark- ed San Francisco police car. This was put ont9 a camper body. Windows in the sides of the camper were enlarged to allow filming from the sides as well as the front and the back. Many sequences are shot over Maiden and Douglas' shoulders as they drive through the streets, putting viewers in the middle of the action. Sometimes this sense of in- volvement goes beyond the call of duty. On a recent working day, as Karl ami Michael drove along with the cinematographer and director in the back, they were suddenly surrounded by police cars responding to a robbery call. The camera kept shooting over the actors' shoulders rec- ording all the action and bonus footage for future use was ob- tained.
