Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 LETHBRIDQE HERALD Wednesday, August 28, 1974 Film site dressing room Actor happy in Duke's caravan HOLLYWOOD (NEA) He was like a kid who had just won a prize, his eyes sparkling and his pride obvious in his smile "This is Duke's he said "Imagine they gave me Duke's caravan." Michael Came lit up a big cigar and leaned back in his chair, in Duke's caravan. Caravan, of course, is the British word for a trailer or a motor home, and 20th Century-Fox had rented John Wayne's big, flashy motor home to serve as Caine's dressing room during the film- ing of "Fat Chance." "I like Came said "I like the fact that it's Duke's caravan, too That's nice "POTTS" It's a complete from Howdy Doody to Buffalo Bob Potts gives history the Raspberry and everyone a laugh The most car- rying on gang carries on cs POTTS FORT MACLEOD Friday LETHBRIDQE Saturday and Sunday Came is an open, friendly man, who likes to talk and hates being alone. So he keeps the refrigerator in Duke's caravan stocked with beer, so people on the set will pop in and talk to him. When nobody pops in, he reads. He reads everything. Always has. "My oldest he says, "loves horses and has never read a book, except maybe 'Black Beauty Just the opposite from me I love to read and I hate horses He took off his glasses and looked at them "Reading so much is how I got bad he said. "As a kid, I was evacuated from London during World War II. World War II was the best thing ever happened to kids my age. From the age of six until I was 12 I was out of London and lived on a farm in Norfolk. "The farmer couldn't get any chemical fertilizers then because of the war. So he used manure We didn't know it, of course, but we were living on organic food. That's how I got to be 6 feet 2. "What was I talking about? Oh, yes, my bad eyes. Well, then1 was no electricity on the The best to you from Palm. Milk. PHLM PALM DAIRIES LIMITED farm But I read all the time, by oil lamp and, at night, what we called nightlights candles in a dish of water I guess they stopped using them in the U.S. around 1776 but we still had them. And that's how I got my bad eyes, I'm sure." Came still lives in England but he doesn't work there any imore He says the movie business in England is now non-existent "There's no money to pay he says, "so Sean (Connery) and Roger (Moore) and I can't work there. If we did, it would all go in taxes." MOOD CHANGED His mood changed as he contemplated the financial conditions in his homeland today. "We're not British subjects any he said, "we're British objects I think I'm a socialist, emotionally, but the things that are happening in England today, with the merchant banks and all, are terrible. "They've made success a crime and that's wrong." He says that many actors, and other well-to-do people, have been badly hurt by the British financial and tax structure But he was lucky or smart "I saw it coming 10 years he says, "and I made certain arrangements, so I'm all right. I still have to pay taxes on what I make there, of course, but I don't work there much any more Mostly, I work outside." This year, for example, he's made films in Nice, France, Kenya, and now in Hollywood. It is, he says, the busiest year he's ever had Altogether, he will make four films in 1974 and has already contracted for three in 1975. "I'll never be this busy he says. "After '75, I'll only do two pictures a year at the most." Eventually, he'd like to direct. He's writing a screenplay now, he says, and he hopes to direct it when it's finished. "I'll probably have to be in it, he says. "I imagine the only way I can get somebody to let me direct would be if I agreed to be in it." One reason he's so busy is that he is now being offered good parts in good films and he hates to turn down such offers. He says that four years ago or so, he didn't even like the pictures he did, "so you can imagine what the stuff I turned down was like." But to- day it's different lots of good scripts are coming his way. It's a good life now for the Cockney kid. He's a major, international star, living "the good life. He has a new wife and a new daughter. His wife, Shakira, is a Kashmiri Indian, but he says she's never been to India. She was born in Guiana in South America. "They had a revolution he says, "and the only way she could get out was by becoming Miss Guiana and go- ing to London for the Miss World competition. She finish- ed third and stayed in London.

Open daily 9 a.m. to 9 p.m Phone 327-2044 provincial department of in- dustry and commerce Mr Ross says the province's success in attracting movie production "has been beyond our expec- and predicts a rosy future for the industry Alberta first won considera- tion as a location for televi- sion movies with a Carson- Paramount production shot as American Broadcasting Corp 's movie of the week. The production. Black Harvest, was filmed in the Lethbridge area That film was followed by Pioneer Woman, a Filmways Inc production shot in the Wa- terton Lakes-Calgary area also as an ABC movie of the week A third film. Snow Tigers, was filmed in the Seebe-Kananaskis area west of Calgary Snow Tigers Productions Inc The film is being distributed by Sun Inter- national Walt Disney Productions is currently filming The Boy Who Could Talk to Badgers, in the Drumheller region The production is based on a Cana- dian novel set in southeastern Manitoba, and requires a film crew of 65 Mr Ross is enthusiastic about the results of almost three years of steady soft-sell to encourage United States film studios to consider Alberta as a location for film- ing Western and other outdoor movies "There may still be years in which we will be fortunate to get one movie produced here, but I think we are going to see movie production in Alberta increase." he says Mr Ross says Alberta's success in attracting large studios rests largely on good co-operation by federal and provincial departments, as well as the direct interest of Alberta Industry Minister Fred Peacock The provincial government's film develop- ment industry group was es- tablished in April, 1973, to "encourage and enhance" film production in the province Extensive manuals on what Alberta has to offer the moviemaker, as well as periodic trips to Hollywood by film group representatives, are two methods of encourag- ing producers to consider Alberta Mr Ross says serving the movie-makers requires the ability of providing co- operation, citing a case where the federal department of agriculture aided in the im- port of animals required for a Walt Disney production. Transportation for Disney's location manager to find the Drumheller location was pro- vided by the government de- partment. The development director says Alberta is developing more services all the time to serve the film industry, and is continuing work on locations which have already attracted preliminary studio interest. He added that the film in- dustry is not only benefiting local economy, but is also providing opportunities for local actors and technicians to work in top productions.
