Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thurtdiy, April LKTHOHloae Veteran actress drops mom role By DICK KLEINER HOLLYWOOD (NEA) Mostly because 17-year-old Kelly Caro has become "a smashing one of Hollywood's old stars has returned to action. Kelly Caro's mother is Nancy Kelly, long a leading Hollywood lady. For the last several years, Nancy hasn't done much acting. She hasn't done much of anything, except raise Kelly. "But she says, "I think maybe the time has come to do some television." When she and her husband, Warren Caro, were divorced, she decided she had to and wanted to devote her time to bringing Kelly along. She feels that it would have been unfair to her daughter to have both parents absent. So she elected to stay home. "I was always Nancy says, "and it paid off. Kelly is a smashing person. She wants to be an actress and I think she's going to make it." Last Jan. 7 was Kelly's 17th birthday. By coincidence, that night they watched a TV showing of one of Nancy's old movies, ''Stanley and Livingstone." "I suddenly Nancy says, "that I was only 17 Kelly's age when I made that movie. Needless to say, I went to bed that night with my make-up on." Anyhow, what with one thing and another, Nancy Kelly has decided to go to work again. Over the years, she's had many offers but turned them all down. Now, however, she's back and back in a big way. She's shot a pilot movie for Warner Bros., something called "The Imposter." "The Imposter" has Paul Hecht playing an actor who is a master at impersonation. Nancy plays the owner of a theatre who tutors him in his various guises and disguises. By a coincidence, she shot it at the same studio Warner Bros. where she made her last movie, "The Bad Seed." She won an Oscar nomination for that role but she thinks she might have won the award itself had she listened to the director, Mervyn LeRoy. "I wanted to do the role just as I had done it on she says. "LeRoy tried to tell me to change it for the movie and I should have listened more to him. But I kept telling him haw to do it." When the picture was over, LeRoy gave her a charm bracelet, with miniature replicas of all the Hollywood movie union membership cards. It was to symbolize her "expertise" in every phase of the movie business, a bit of sarcasm she appreciated. She says she still sees her brother, Jack, and, in fact, the two of them are talking about plotting out a series to do together, if The Imposter doesn't make it. One way or another, Nancy Kelly is back in business. It's nice to have her back. FOUND DEEP DOWN Sponges have been taken from depths of up to feet.

CABARET 'CROWFOOT' Rock singer's success typical Hollywood story NANCY KELLY Ballet group to tour S. America WINNIPEG (CP) A 41- member contingent from the Royal Winnipeg Ballet left Wednesday for a nine-week tour of South America, including Cuba. The tour, sponsored by the federal government, is the most extensive road trip by a Canadian company and marks the first North American dance company to perform in Cuba since the late 1950s. Other countries in the schedule are Brazil, Argentina, Columbia, Panama, Costa Rica, Peru, Nicaragua and Mexico. By SILVIO DOBR1 Owen Sound Sun-Times OWEN SOUND, Ont. (CP) Buddy Kftox knows rock 'n1 roll. He grew up with it and with the stars who popu- larized it in the '50s. Raised in the heart of rock 'n' roll country, Lubbock, Tex., the same land that weaned Buddy Holly, Roy Or- bison and many other promi- nent musicians of that era, Knox's ascent to popularity is the typical Hollywood success story. Knox didn't know many tunes, so he wrote his own. Musician friends urged him to cut a record and, together with his band, the Rhythm Orchids, he recorded Party Doll and I'm Sticking With You. The session cost and the records were forgotten. "We had four recordings made for Knox, 41, recalled. "We weren't really interested in recording but we did want a memento of what we were doing at the time, something to look back on and say, Hey! Look what 'we did in school." A band member's sister sent one of the singles to a New York record company and three months later Buddy Knox and the Rhythm Or- chids became overnight sen- sations. Party Doll was followed by several other hits and the band appeared on countless television and radio shows across the United States. For nine years following his first hit, Knox rode the waves of popularity with several million-sellers among 22 of his songs which made the Top 40 charts during that time. Then, in 1966, he dropped out of the recording field and the one- nighter merry-go-round for the more financially secure nightclub circuit. But the subsequent rock 'n' roll revival has created new demand for the Buddy Knox sound.

Today a lot of greaser groups make fun of rock 'n' roll, but I grew up with it and was one of the first guys in rock 'n' roll along with Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, Buddy Holly and the Crickets. I do it authentic and play it like it's supposed to be played." He said a lot of musicians on today's rock 'n' roll scene are too young to remember what it was like in the early days. They interpret the music and rarely achieve the authentic sound. "They also think that back in those days, everybody greased his hair back and wore cut-off denim jeans, but that's a lot of Knox said. "Old rock 'n' roll groups wore nothing but tuxedos." Rock 'n' roll was serious during the 1950s. It became a culture and the beginning of a new era. But before rock 'n' roll and the Beatles, life in the music business was different, Knox recalled. Many old recording stars came close to quitting as there was little money in the business. BUDDY KNOX Knox credits the Beatles more than any other music force with saving the industry and opening huge new hori- zons. "When the Beatles hit the scene, the music business got a shot in the arm. A whole new market was created for all of us. The Beatles saved the record companies, they saved everything connected with the music industry. And the more hits the Beatles had, the better things became for the industry." Today, Knox. a resident of Vancouver, continues to sing the songs that made him fa- mous. His stage repertoire covers a four-year period in his to his performances maintain their vitality and youthful- ness.
