Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta STAR GAZING HOLLYWOOD Some locals got together and decided that the Grammy Awards don't do justice to black performers. So they staged what they called The Soul and Blues Awards to fill the gap. Like most new awards shows this one suffered from too many categories and not enough prep- aration. They had some great performers but the categories Roberta Flack for awards were endless. The actual show was a shambles. Often nobody came up excpet the awards for winners who weren't there. Top winners were AI Green, male vocalist of the year, and Roberta Flack, female vocalist of the year. At a taping of NBC Follies, one of the fall season's new shows, Mdckey Rooney talked to the studio audience before the show, "Remember my old Andy Hardy he asked, and the folks dutifully applauded. "They don't make pictures like that any more. Remember my girl friend in those movies, Polly Benedict? They don't make girls like that any more least I don't." Eddie Fisher is trying yet another comeback. To get him- self in shape for another shot at the golden ring, Eddie spent some time at Southern Califor- nia's current Mur- riela Hot Springs. Roger Moore, the newest James Bond he stars in "Live and Let Die" once lived in a very strange house in London. It had been owned at one time by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the man who created Sherlock Holmes. Maybe that explains it. Whatever it was, Moore says the house was full of polter- geists. "I would draw a hot he says, "and then stick my toe in the tub and it would be ice cold. Lights would be turned off and on when nobody was near the switch. Dishes would float around the room under their own power. "I left the house. And I left the wife who went with it." There'll probably be a sequel to. "The Poseidon but Gene Hackman won't be in it. He was killed at tJie end of the picture but that doesn't ne- cessarily have to be perman- "from Hollywood By DICK KLEINER ent. Lots of sequels have been made involving characters who were killed off in the original. In fact, Hackman says, pro- ducer Irwin Allen had the whole thing figured out. At the end of the first one, a rescue helicop- ter came along to scoop up the survivors of the capsized ocean liner. Hackman says Allen proposed that the sequel open with the helicopter pilot (this time p.ay- ed by Hackman) arriving at the ship wreckage and asking survivors: "Did my twin bro- ther make He turned the idea down. Big turnouts for screening of two highly-touted films. "Jesus Christ Norman Je- wison's version of the rock op- a thrilling piece of film. It will be heard from come next Oscar time. Then there was "40 in which Liv Ullmann tries light comedy, playing an older wo- man who falls for a young man, and Edward Albert is t5ie young man. But a couple of veterans Kelly and Binnie Barnes the show. Some of the pairings in the audience attracted as much at- tention as the film. Albert es- corted Samar.lha Eggar and you couldn't help wonder if lie was living his film role. Frances Goldwyn, the wife of Sam Goldwyn who has been ill for a long time, made one of her rare appearances, and was on the arm of the great old direc- tor, George Cukor. Jack Pal- anee was there, beaming proud- ly because his daughter, Brooke, has a small part in the movie. T can't figure out why, but the National Football League has asked MGM for prints of the new Burl Reynolds movie, The Man Who Loved Cat Danc- ing." The NFL said it wanted to have the film shown at all GENE KELLY: ilesbr. the training camps this sum- mer. What ARE they training for? If you've ever been curious about Las Vegas I suggest you read Ralph Pearl's book, "Las Vegas Is My Beat." It's Vegas the inside. If you've ever been curious about the life of a stand-up com- edian, I suggest you road Hen- ny Youngman's autobiography, "Take My Wife It's full of Youngman's one- liners and tells what it's like to be a comic. Look for Gene Kelly to do more acting. He has refused to leave Hollywood to do any- thing because he wanted to be with his children. But he says that by next year they will be old enough "so I can move around more." He figures then he can take them out of school and take them with him. He'll be able to accept out-of-town films.
