Solurdoy, Dcicmbor 12, 1970 THE 1ETHBRIDGE HERALP 7 Oliver ivailing in wings to take Parliament seat LONDON (AP) Sir Laur- ence Olivier is still waiting in the wings to take his seat in the House of Lords. The 63-year-old actor was made a peer by the Queen last June but complications liave arisen over his choice of a title. There was a previous Lord Olivier, a former governor of Jamaica, who died in 1943. He had no son to carry on the title, but left four daughters. One of them is sliil alive. When there has been a pre- vious holder of a title with the same name, the Garter King of Arms, Sir Anthony Wagner, must be satisfied that there is no possibility of a forgotten claimant turning up. The usual procedure is to consult the descendants of the previous peer.

It will still be Sir Laurence on theatre billboards. And he has said: "Sir Larry is what I prefer to be called."

No Blade of Grass, currently at the Paramount Cinema, is apparently former actor Cor- nel Wilde's personal statement on the possibilities of world' wide devastation by pollution. It's a statement the worldwide could do without. An examination of whai could occur if a virus, pre- sumably from pollution, hi food grains, causing global starvation and its attendant problems, the movie is sur- passed in idiocy only by view- ers who stick through the 90- niinute running time. Mysterious FLQ man identified QUEBEC (CP) Justice Minister Jerome Choquette told the Quebec legislature Friday that "Pierre Seguin" was an as- sumed name used by one of the seven persons flown to Cuba after the release of kidnap hos- tage James Cross. "A police investigation re- he said, "that this indi- vidual is really Yves Langlois of jongueuil, who had been appre- hended by police during demon- strations in 1966." He said Langlois was born Oct. The justice minister's state- ment was the first indication that police had any information on the mysterious "Pierre Se- gnin" who took advantage last veck of a government offer of safe passage to Cuba in ex- change for the release of the British trade commissioner kid- napped Oct. 5.

Phone 328-9332 An English architect (Nigel Davenport) and his wife (pro- ducer director Wilde's real- life wife, Jean Wallace, who acts every role as if she had a permanent migraine head- ache) fight their way from Lon- don lo the countryside and his brother's well-stocked farm. Along the way they are spec- tators or participants in a grisly catalogue of murders, rooucnss, rapes, gang wsrs and mutinies, none of them relieved by a semblance of honest feeling. Davenport is allegedly a vet- eran with strong anti killing sentiments, yet he murders and rampages with the cool of Bluebeard. Wallace and her daughter are raped in an overly-graphic scene representative of the en- tire movie: gore and violence stretched to the nth degree with no emotional context. The girl and mother make slight nudges in the direction of re- vulsion over their ordeal, but clearly Wilde's prescription for rape-sufferers is watching a couple of juicy murders. Actually, No Blade of Grass should win followers to the Women's Liberation M o v e- ment. The movie exploits every anatomical part of a wortian, and with all the lasciviousness of i De Sade writing. Cornel Wilde should be let in on the fact that pollution comes in many forms, ugly movies being one of them.
