Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 21, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, December 21, 1970 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 7 Rock musical Hair real mor TORONTO. (CP) Early in January, the Toronto production of the rock musical Jiair will celebrate its first birthday. T h e record-setting musical was supposed to close Jan. 3, but heavy advance sales are ex- pected to force its producers to extend its run for at least the extra eight nights needed to make it a year old on Jan. 11. But, record-breaking run aside, Hair's success is only a symptom of the most successful year in Toronto's theatrical his- tory.

Some of the other big hits tht have been a part of the curret theatrical boom have been OJ, ev-maker Jacques Brel, Diony- sus (in and and Justine. Now the Crest has returned to the lists with The Me Nobody Knows. Although the Royal Alexandra and O'Kccfc Centre will con- tinue to depend mainly on U.S.- based road show productions, the smaller professional thea- tres have reversed that trend.

They liked the film, som parts of which were photo- graphed in Alberta. They liked Dustin Hoffman's performance as Jack Crabb, a 121-year-old codger who in his reminiscences claims to Iiavt been raised by the Cheyenne In dians and to'be the last white survivor of Caster's Last Stand And they almost acclaimed the natural perform siice of Dan George, a Salisl chief front Vancouver who plays the role of Old Lodge Skins, a Cheyenne cliief who adoptee Crabb, Time magazine, in a near-ec static review, says: "The '70s has its first great epic. Blood brother to the 1903 one-reeler The Great Train Robbery, Little Big Man is the new western to begin all westerns." TRIED FOR OTHERS Time notes that director Ar- thur Penn had sought unsuc- cessfully to get Sir Laurence Olivier or Paul Scofield for the Indian-chief role. Then he awarded the part to Kichard Boone, who resigned before filming started. Only then die Penn assign the role to Chief George, and in this was "plumb lucky." "It was a momentous deci- says Time. "Dan George's stoicism and grace give him an almost biblical presence." Arthur Winsten in The Post says the chief's "nobility of be- havior and long-lasting loyalty sets records." John J. O'Connor in the Wall Street Journal saj's the per- formances of Chief George anr Cal Bellini, also in an Indian role, are first-rate. Gail Hock in Women's Wear Daily glares: "Chief Dan George has such innate dignity that he manages to rise above iome of Calder Willingham's lapses in the screenplay, and his performance is a joy. scene where the chief prepares 'or his own imminent death is priceless." BASED ON NOVEL Willingham wrote the screen- )lay from a novel by Thomas 3crger. N e w s d a y reviewer Joseph G elm is says: "Chief Dan George is a sage who is also a clown. When he dramati- cally lies out atop a hill to await leath, all he gets is rain in the ace. It is the moment that re- reals what Little Big Man is about." Most of the reviewers com- ilain of Uie length of the film, Disney workers settle strike HOLLYWOOD (-AP) Dis- leyland performers represented iy the American Guild of Vari- ty Artists reached a_contract ettlement here with Wait jJis- ey Productions, ending a strike f more than four months, pokesmen for both sides said. The guild and Disney an- ouncect the agree m e n t on a ew three year contract, but efused to disclose terms. The contract covers a total of 2 jobs, including Indian cere- monial dancers, Kids of the ingdom singers and dancers nd seasonal workers, a Disney wkesman said. They are due to return to ork at tlie Anaheim amuse- lent park immediately. The mployees walked off their jobs ug. 8, saying they were "terri- ly underpaid and union spokesman said. which runs 2'.z hours. Women's Wear Daily wonders how Indi- ans will respond to their film treatment, ranging from grave respect to buffoon. Vincent Canby in The Times says the film tries to cover loo much ground and sometimes ''wears its social concerns so blatantly that they look like war paint." Nevertheless "it is one of the maybe half-dozen Ameri- can movies of this year that won't make you ponder the pos- sibility of a subsidy plan to pay film-makers not to work I FAMOUS last words..
