Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 29, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta New James Bond movies for release in December BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) James Bond, after eight films and 11 years of violence and fantasy, is at it again. Indestructible agent 007 now is karate-chopping a path through the more exotic cor- ners of the Far East, charm- ing his way through a smorgasbord of ever-willing "Bond Girls." Makers of the latest Bond film say their celluloid package will be delivered to the public for Christmas, 1974. And they are certain The Man with the Golden Gun will again soothe their ears with the ring of the box-office cash register. Meanwhile, cameras churn on in the casinos at Macao, on the canals of Bangkok and on remote James Bond Island off the coast of Thailand, all in pursuit of unbeatable for- mulas: first, "create an at- mosphere of belief in surroun- dings of utter and second, top the last Bond extravaganza with more of everything. "We've got to give the viewer a vicarious says film publicity chief Charles Juroe. With the exception of the rather Westernized Japanese background of You Only Live Twice, the East is virgin terri- tory for Bond followers. DOESN'T EVEN SWEAT While most Bangkok visitors sweat a lot in the city's steady 90-degree heat, Bond, as played by super- suave Britisher Roger Moore, doesn't betray a beadful on his tanned forehead after a lengthy chase. Intestinal aches are another common complaint of the tourist, but Bond doesn't have such problems. "James Bond never goes to the says one member of the company. Even death comes in an im- peccable package: one Bond girl, played by Maude Adams, meets a sanitized end with a neat bullet in the middle of her lovely cleavage. "It's a typical Bond death. All the audience sees is a little red speck, right Miss Aug. 26th Sept. 7th "CANADIAN CLUB" AT THE INERS 733-13th St. N. Members and Invited Guests Only Adams says, pointing. Bullets play a large part in the film. In fact, the plot tries to answer the rhetorical ques- tion: Will the golden bullet with Bond's code number etched on it finish off the world's top agent and end Bond movies VILLAIN FROM ORIENT To play up the exotic Orient angle, Bond's mally a Germanic-Slavic is now a smooth, sophisticated and properly inscrutable Chinese money lord from Hong Kong. He in turn hires the world's highest paid assassin per contract, 40 successful jobs to his Scaramanga. Christopher Lee of Dracula movie fame is The Man with the Golden Gun. Along the way, "matters of British the energy crisis and intelligence agent Mary Goodnight, portrayed by Britt Eklund, attempt to slow down the main business; fast- paced action. Hung on this rather thin plot -are car and boat chases, an exploding seaplane, sea- tossed Chinese junks, and, in the words of the producers, "the entire spectrum of the Eastern martial arts" as practised by the East's finest swingers of arms and fuers, karate masters, sumo wrestlers, Thai kickboxers, you name it. In the gadgets and gim- micks department, the producers promise, among other things, "something with cars that has never been done on film."

This one will be different. To begin with, for the first time the play's curtain line "The sonofabitch stole my watch" will be used. I.A.L. Diamond, who wrote the screenplay with director Billy Wilder, explains why it was never used before. FIRST VERSION "In the '31 version, with Pat O'Brien and Adolphe Men- he says, "it couldn't be used couldn't say the words then They obscured it with the sound of'a typewriter. "The '40 version, with Gary Grant and Ros Russell, didn't use it because with the change to a bo> girl thing it didn't apply."

It is per- missible, in today's culture. Izzy Diamond says the cinema today is freer than the stage was in 1928, when the play came out. And they are, therefore, using language that even Hecht and MacArthur couldn't use. "They had to use eu- Diamond says. "They said 'horse's for example instead of 'horse's ass.' Wilder is 67 now and still dashes about the set like a nervous fox terrier. He has his sweater tied around his neck, his hat perched on the back of his head and he chews gum like mad. Between his gum chewing and his Austrian accent, it's hard for an out- sider to understand him. "It's all says Vin- cent Gardenia, "We unders- tand everything he says." Wilder has assembled a top notch cast to back up Lemmon and Matthau. Carol Burnett has a small but exciting part and there's Gardenia, Susan Sarandon. Harold Gould, David Wayne, Allen Garfield and Charles burning. Harold Gould is coming into his own as one of the new breed of great character ac- tors. That's always been one of Hollywood's greatest attributes, the pool of character actors, and Gould is one of the leading fish in the new pool. GOOD CAREER "I've had a good he says, "and it's getting better. This is the era of character men playing leading roles, which is great for me." He's another actor who started his career relatively late in life. He's from Albany, N.Y., the son of a postal worker. He liked acting, but the family philosophy was that acting was fine as a hobby but surely not a fulltime occupation. He went to college, major- ing in education, and for 10 years after graduation he taught dramatics first in New York state, then Virginia, then at the Universi- ty of California at Riverside. He had some time off and decided, since he was so near Hollywood, he would give professional acting a try. That was in 1960 and he's been an actor ever since. Now some other Goulds are getting into the act. His wife, one of his students at Cornell, is now acting under the name of Lee Champanier. And his 9 year old son is in a play.

Producer Edward Lewis says the film would be the most expensive ever made, but beyond noting that each country would pay half, Mrs. Reece declined to name a total figure. George Cukor was to direct, she said. The film is scheduled for re- lease late in 1975. Mrs. Reece said. Mrs. Reece said the agree- ment with the Soviets is the result of more than a year of negotiations. The chief actors are to be American.

Big deficit WASHINGTON (Reuter) Last month's United States trade deficit was the third- largest ever recorded, the commerce department an- nounced Monday. The deficit widened in July to million compared with the June deficit of million. The July deficit compared with the record October, 1971, deficit of million and the deficit of million in May of this year. The deterioration in the U.S. trade position in July was principally due to a large increase in the imports of oil which jumped 25.6 million barrels to barrels. The value of those imports jumped million to billion. Show Times I'VIMMOI M' TIIKVTHK Short Subjects. 7 00 S.P Y.S. 735 940 LAST COMPLETE SHOW.

Making their third Cana- dian visit this month. Barry Gibb and his younger twin brothers Robin and Maurice previously have played only to the major eastern cities- Toronto, Ottawa, Hamilton and Montreal. Their last ap- pearance here was in February. Since 1967, the British group has .been intermittently prominent, sometimes dis- appearing from AM radio charts for almost year-long stretches before returning with a product more exciting than the last. Their Canadian tour follows the release of their 15th al- bum. Mr. Natural. Despite general enthusiasm, the Bee Gees have been coldly received by a handful of reviewers because by today's standards they fall short as rock musicians. The criticism is that their music has more depth than amplification, that their lush orchestral accompaniment plays as important a role as the electrical instruments and, in short, that their music is too middle-of-the-road But no critic can dispute that their music, al! original, includes some of today's most moving ballads. Their songs have been recorded by more than 100 performers, including Frank Sinatra. Engelbert Hum- 'berdinck. Tom Jones, Jose Feliciano and the late Janis Jophn.
