Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, December 14, 1974 Court informed cable TV out of CRTC jurisdiction OTTAWA (CP) The Broadcasting Act does not give the Canadian Radio Television Commission (CRTC) jurisdiction over cable television, the Federal Court of Canada was told here. Lawyers for three Buffalo, N.Y., television stations argued that the CRTC's powers are limited to broad- transmitted or received on air waves and do not include coaxial cable distribution. The CRTC, the lawyers said, "had no business to interfere at with what cable companies do with the signals they receive. The three American stations, WGR, Channel 2; WBEN, Channel 4 and PRE-CHRISTMAS Rugs and Upholstery Cleaning Special by Shining Knight Phone 328-8408 SM Details In Tins. Herald and Fri. TV Guide WKBW, Channel 7, seek an injunction to prohibit Rogers Cable TV Ltd. of Toronto from deleting commercials from programs the cable company relays to Subscribers. The CRTC became involved when Rogers received a letter from the stations saying the three U.S. network affiliates would initiate a lawsuit if the cable company continued to substitute public service and other messages for commer- cials. Rogers asked the com- mission to amend its receiv- ing licence. An amended licence referred to a CRTC policy statement in July 1971, ad- vocating random deletion of commercials from American stations and substitution with public service an- nouncements. "Parliament did not grant the CRTC the power to deal with cable companies, a dis- tribution lawyer Gordon Henderson said in his opening submission to the court. "It limited the power of the CRTC to deal only with recep- tion" of signals and not with any other aspect of the operation. Mr. Justice Arthur Thurlow, said it was obvious the CRTC's powers in licens- ing the cable operation was of greater jurisdiction in that it "authorized a receiving un- dertaking" and not just receiving signals.

Among other things, one remembers "The Godfather's tremendous narrative drive and the dominating presence of Marlon Brando in the title role, which, though not large, unified the film and trans- formed a super gangster movie into a unique family chronicle "Part also written by Coppola and Mario Puzo, is not a sequel m any engaging way. "It's not really much of anything that can be easily defined" It's a second movie made largely out of the bits and pieces of Puzo's novel that didn't fit into the first. It's a Frankenstein's monster stitched together from left- over parts It talks It moves in fits and starts but it has no mind of its own. Occasionally it repeats a point made in "The Godfather" (organized crime is just another kind of American business, say) but its insights are fairly lame at this point. "The Godfather Part is not very far along before one realizes that it hasn't anything more to say Everything more to say. Everything of any interest was thoroughly covered in the original film, but like many people who have nothing to say, "Part II" won't shut up. Not the least of its problems is its fractured form. "Part II" moves continually back and forth in time between two distinct narratives. It's the story of the young Vito Corleone (who grew up to be played by Marlon Brando in the first seen first around the turn of the century in Sicily and then in 1917 in New York, where he's played by Robert de Niro, and it's the story Oxvito's son, Michael, played again by Al Pacino, the new Mafia Don who sets out to control Las Vegas in the late 1950's One story doesn't necessari- ly illuminate the other. It's just additional data, like foot- notes I can't readily imagine what Coppola and Puzo were trying to do NATIONAL FINALS LIVE ON TELEVISION Saturday, December 14 p.m. to p.m. Criinntl 13 CFCN-TV wi wii i EXCITING FINAL NIGHT PERFORMANCE The leading cc.vScys o' the year brought to you by the leading company in one- man systems Hesstoni ,f HESSTOV II F AHM rOIIICMtNT I And Your Dealer in Southern Alberta GEMCO MACHINERY LTD. Box 176, Barnwell, Alberta American Film Theatre hopes to lure audiences MONTREAL (CP) The American Film Theatre will launch its second season of "motion picture plays" in January amid hopes by AFT officials that the program can lure audiences back into the movie houses. "In a way it's a kind of cru- sade against a lot of the tripe being dished up as family fare by some of the major said Edythe Landau, AFT's vice-president in a re- cent interview. "What's more, we have a small army of talented and dedicated people who think the effort is well worth it." The galaxy of stars who headlined last year's program read like a who's who of the movie industry and Mrs. Lan- dau said this year will be similar. "We've got some great actors and direc- for a fraction of their regular fees because they have faith in the pro- gram and what it is trying to accomplish. Wife of producer Ely Lan- dau, who created the idea of bringing together some of the best plays and turning them into films, Mrs. Landau said AFT's second season is much more organized than the first, when the project nearly foundered. "Last year there were enor- mous problems because both Canada and the United States were combined for the pur- poses of ticket distribution and the American Express computer we used didn't do the job as we expected. There were also hassles with over- bookings." Five productions will be of- fered this year on a subscrip- tion basis only and a Mon- treal firm has been hired to deal exclusively with Cana- dian bookings. The computer, she said, has been scratched for the tried- and-true method of direct mail. This year's playbill includes Jean Genet's The Maids with two-time Academy Award winner Glenda Jackson, Su- sannah York and Vivien Mer- chant. Maximillian Schell will star in Robert Shaw's Man in the Glass Booth and Alan Bates heads the cast in David Story's In Celebration To round out the program Topol and John Gielgud will star in Brecht's Galileo and Jacques Brel in Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Pans, filmed in Montreal un- der the direction of Denis Heroux. The films will be shown one a month from January to May There will be four per- formances of each picture, a matinee and and evening showing on one Monday and one Tuesday each month, in selected cities across Canada The AFT also hopes to line up schools for large bookings at reduced rates. "We want to bring good theatre to the widest possible audience, to let them enjoy through film what they might have neither the chance nor the inclination to see if they were in the conventional theatre Mrs Landau said. Bandleader found guilty of income tax evasion NEW YORK (AP) Bandleader Skitch Henderson was found guilty here of a se- cond count of filing a false in- come tax statement involving his gift of music scores to the University of Wisconsin A charge of income tax evasion, left undecided by the federal court jury, was dismissed, ending the musician's nme-dav trial The jury had earlier found Henderson, 56, guilty on another false statement charge and had acquitted him on two other counts. i A BEAUTIFUL I CHRISTMAS GIFT FOR THE GIRL IN YOUR LIFE!
