Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta A WARM WELCOME AWAITS YOU MARQUIS HOTEL The LctHbttdgc Herald TELEVISION GUIDE HANNIGAN'S 328-4038 FRIDAY, AUGUST 14, 1970 LISTINGS FOR SATURDAY, AUGUST 15 TO FRIDAY, AUGUST 21 Lures tig Film Stars Drop-Outs By DICK KLEINER JTOLLYWOOD (NBA) Al- most every week, you can see one of these headlines in the Hollywood trade papers: JAMES STEWART TO STAR IN HALF-HOUR TV SERIES HENRY FONDA'S SERIES SET FOR JANUARY, 1971 CBS INKS GLENN FORD FOR SERIES, JN '71-'72 AM there are more, many more. Shirley MacLaine. Tony Curtis. They too are set for weekly TV series. The biggest names of the movie business are suddenly, dramatically, going over to tele- vision. For them, it's a chance to work, and work for.that gen- eration of movie stars is hard to find these days. For the net- works, it's a chance to get a top name and maybe a better shot at a successful series. ;'Glenn Ford costs us 10 times as much as a good work- ing sayd Perry Lafferty of CBS. "But" we think having him gives that show five times as good a chance to make it as it would have with just a good working actor in the lead." As usual in Hollywood, econ- omics, not art, is at the root of the change. Big pictures are out, small budget pictures are in. That means big, high-priced actors are more or less out, top. "Some actors wil work for half that today jusl to be says agent Fred Amsal. "Men like George ?eppard and Stephen Boyd, ihey'll act for a lot less, just to be working." But picture makers find they don't need those big names. If rhey have a good story, it doesn't seem to matter if they lave .Kirk Douglas or Douglas Kirk in the lead. In fact, the movie-going au- dience seems to want younger actors, the new kids, last year s unknowns and next -year's mil- lionaires. It's Dustm Hoffman, Jon Voight, Elliot Gould, Don- ald Sutherland those are the top movie names today. Where does that leave Ford, Stewart, Fonda, MacLaine. Cur- tis, Douglas, Lancaster, those big, big, big names of the past? Out in the cold. "A few years Lafferty ays, "we would have no chance f getting a-star-of Kirk Doug- as' level, his agent would have you shot at the door. Today rou can ask." "Big names, surprisingly big says Bonanza's pro- ducer, David Dortort, "are be- ng offered to us at compett- ive prices. And it makes sense. Stars of that erajiaye their afc uienee ;at 'home Stew- audience n't going to the movies." you can even approach a Burton or a Taylor about says Amsel. "They might augli at you Wednesday after- noon, but maybe you'll get a call from them Thursday morn- ing." The point they an make is that the two audiences movie and television are different. The TV audience is older, and it is the one to whom the older stars still appeal. "We. can't get the younger stars like Dustin says Lafferty. "But we really don't want them. The mass au- dience we play to doesn't know them." Lafferty says that Michael Came got to do "Too Late the but that he could walk into Farmer's Mar- ket and most people wouldn't know him. On TV, .Caine wouldn't command os much of a following as Hurt Lancaster, yet the opposite is true, prob- ably, on the big screen. As TV gets more and more expensive Lafferty says an episode of Mission: Impossible costs mere than now "we must play to the mass audience."
