Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 18, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, December 18, 1974 Dance group plans unique campaign to raise funds EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta Contemporary Dance Theatre will perform in six shopping centres next year in an effort both to raise funds and to campaign for contemporary dance. The unique campaign to reach out to the people of Ed- monton will run from January to April and will include a three-day spring concert. Ron Holgerson, the theatre's managing director, said that for the first time in its four-year history the theatre is booked solid-rat least as solid as it can be until sufficient finances are receiv- ed to enable the dancers to quit part-time jobs and de- vote all their time and energy to modern dance training and performance. The theatre has grown since Charlene Tarver and Jac- queline Ogg first created it in the fall of 1971. Each year the company has performed an annual concert in Edmonton and conducted a brief tour of the province, with financial help from the department of culture, youth and recreation and the city. Last June, the theatre represented the city, the province and Canada in four concerts at the 1974 World's Fair in Spokane. Mr. Holgerson says the con- tinued growth of the company is being retarded by lack of funds. "Without continuing suste- nance, as from such an agency as the Canada Council, the company cannot hope to become 100 per cent compete, in a sense, with the Winnipeg Contemporary Dancers and the Toronto Dance Theatre."

Studios didn't want to be bothered. Stars avoided it. Nobody liked it but the au- dience. That was the birth of the television movie. "I don't think any of us en- visaged it becoming a new kind of said Aa- ron Spelling, who produced the first Movie of the Week for ABC in 1969 He has done 52 since. The TV movie has indeed become a new kind of tele- vision. At its best, it is thought-pro- voking, diverse, offering in- depth character study. At its worst, it is cliche-ridden and melodramatic. Even in the earliest days, some remarkable films emerged My Sweet Charlie, Silent Night Lonely Night, Duel, Brian's Song and Tribes. But it has been m the last year that the art form has come of age with such films as The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman, The Execution of Private Slovik and A Case of Rape. "I think it's the future of said Herbert S Schlosser, president of NBC. Producer Chuck Fries said. "I think we're going to have bigger and more expensive movies made for TV The really big stars will come if you make it attractive enough for them." Fries is turning out more than half-a-dozen TV movies this season. The three United States net- works air about 100 original movies a year They range from the 90-minute films that appear twice a week on ABC and once weekly on NBC to the two-and three-hour movies on CBS to such open- ended pictures as the six-hour QBVII. Universal Studios made the first TV movie, Fame Is the The name tells you if s an exceptional whisky. DOUBLE DISTILLED Canadian Whisky The name also tells you why it tastes so good. CANADIAN DISTILLERS LIMITED Name of the Game, for NBC in 1966 and launched not only the TV movie but a long-run- 'ning series, The Name of the Game. From the start, the TV movie and the series pilot have been linked. A strong point of the TV movie is that it can hit an im- portant social issue while it is still on everyone's mind, like A Case of Rape last year and this season's The Gun, which traces the ownership of a pis- tol and shows how it affects each person's life Another major factor: A TV film is seen by everyone at the same time on the same night. That gives it an impact and social importance a the- atrical film could never achieve. "We have more freedom than the motion said NBC's Schlosser. "They address a narrower, younger audience. We can treat a broader subject and find a great appetite out there for it. "Our are tailored for the medium. We can make them faster to capture a sub- ject of the moment. I'm con- vinced our ability to deter- mine audience tastes is more sophisticated than that of the motion picture industry." As with any new dramatic form, the TV movie built its own star structure The superstars of the bread- and-butter TV movie drive up the ratings, yet are rarely asked to star in a theatrical film Elizabeth Montgomery, star of Bewitched and A Case of Rape, is a superstar, Elizabeth Taylor, who flopped in a TV movie, is not The people who pack them in at the living room bijou are Miss Montgomery, Karen Va- lentine, Cloris Leachman, Barbara Eden, Connie Ste- vens, Martin Sheen, Lloyd Bridges, Hal Holbrook and Darren McGavin. Producer Quinn Martin, big- gest independent producer in television, said he has seen the movies change. "If you couldn't say what the show was about in two lines, they wouldn't buy he said. "The attitude's dif- ferent now. "I've got a movie coming up called Terror on the It's about ripping off a train, and it's in a melodramatic frame. "In the old days I'd have had to have a you don't get to Croton on time somebody's going to have a baby They don't ask for the melodramatic gimmicks any more."
