Arness counsels against counting the number of scenes and lines in a show. Because actors are hams by dcEinitio'i. the more lines they read and the oftener thp-ir facos are seen on screen, Lhc happier they are. Big Jim knows Hi is doesn't apply lo television. Audiences rebel and tune out. The show is cancelled and the big names can't figi'ire why. Endurance, to his way of thinking, comes from applying the reverse technique. As Malt Dillon, Jim limits his scenes and lines to give fans the illu- sion they are seeing a good deal more of him than is Ihe case. He is one star who oflen cuts his lines. Flip's dog is "Maybe part of the success of Gunsmoke is the fact the lead characters back off a little and give viewers a he says.

"It depends on the scene how much I have to concentrate on his per- sonality and character. Some- times I fall right into his char- acteristics.

Flip's dog is an English bulldog named Gerri after Flip's feminine character, Gcraldine Jones. Flip says it was Gem that taught his children to like people for their inner beauty and not for physical appear- ances. "Look at Gem's he said. "Ugly by human standards, right? But you like her. Everybody likes her and you forget about how scrunched up her face is. It's the same way with people.

Pollution effects re-telecast On August II, p.m. on Channel 13, CTV is lo re- telecast the outstanding docu- mentary program And On The Eighth Day, a study of the ef- fects cr polh.tion on the total environment. Produced by Thames Televi- sion in England, '.he program investigates the frightening consequences of our massive inch's trial teclmology in Can- ada the Uni Led Kingdom and tho United States. The extent of man's pollution of the environment is com- pared against his meagre knowledge of how the ecologi- cal systems function. If a bal- ance is to be found before a point rf no return is reached, I ho n massive sums of money will need to be spent on pollu- tion control, ecological re- search and education.

Stem-ring Mike Connors, Man- nix involves its large coast-lo- consL audience in the adven- tures of a single private in- vestigator. Unaided by gad- getry or a large Learn. Joe Mnnnix is very much a human person. He displays both s I h s and weaknesses, making him a television fig- ure with h o m Ihe audience can identify. As a detective Man nix i.s not al! fist and fast guns, although on occasion he i-s not loath to use force. He would rather use his intuitive knowledge of peo- ple and they react to stress, to track down his ad- versaries. Joe Mannix under- stands the motives that push normally law abiding citizens to go outside the law to re- solve their problems. Yet, he dctcsls and lights fierce clelcrminalion the organized criminals who readily use vio- lence and extortion to achieve their criminal ends. The role of Joe lU.mnix de- mnnds n great deal of physical action.
