Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, 30, 1974 Stop-and-go film-making bore' says actor By ELLIE GROSSMAN EDGARTOWN, Martha's Vineyard (NBA) It'3 the sudden weight of the huge shark lying across the bow of the small fishing boat, not the sharp wind, that tilts the stern out of the water causing the deck to incline steeply Unable to stop himself, the fisherman slides on his back down the deck towards the shark His foot touches the snout and the fish begins to thrash and twist, trying to close its jaws around it. For several moments, the man struggles desperately But the effort is too much for him He screams, his face red with exertion, and then yells Steven Spielberg, the director, and the cameras are switched off. The men on the barge nearby stop maneuvering the mechanical shark And Robert Shaw, the English actor playing the fisherman, looks up for word from Spielberg who stands on an adjacent garbe amidst a crew of 20 and a profusion of equipment YAMAHA ORGANS New and Used COLLEGE MALL Phone 328-3694 "Beautiful, Spielberg calls. "Let's do it one more time We've got to get the shark working more." PROBLEM He turns to deal with the problem and Shaw, who has done the scene half a dozen times this morning in the choppy waters off Martha's Vineyard, lies back wearily on the cold deck of the fishing boat. He cups his hands behind his head and closes his eyes. It's a bloody bore, this stop and go filmmaking. Especially when you've been at it for 17 weeks, instead of the scheduled six, as Universal Pictures has with its adaptation of Peter Benchley's bestselling novel, "Jaws And it's keeping Shaw from his writing. Although known primarily for his acting (he's currently on screen in "The Sting" in the role of the limping Irish Shaw is an equally skilled author and he covets the time to write "I've done too much work as an actor this he says "I've made two films Sting" and "The Taking of Pelham One Two Three') and done one play before this Dance of Off "It's been two years since I began 'Flesh and my sixth novel, and I've been away from it so long I feel guilty." WORRIER At 48, the father of nine, passionate athlete (the limp in "The Sting" was not a nice extra touch but rather a legacy of three torn ligaments from a vigorous handball game the Saturday before devoted drinker "I love to drink but I worry about it because it gets harder to do well the older you get" a man who's never able to sleep the night through, who reads five newspapers in addition to Time, Newsweek and New York magazine, Shaw admits he's "terribly introspective" and possessed of a "Celtic twilight" view of things. "Flesh and for example, is set in an old age home in Manhattan "There's a war he explains, "and the old people decide to form a regiment and get their grandchildren out themselves It's really about an old people's crusade. "I've been reading Lord Moran's he continues "He was Churchill's doctor. He didn't write about Churchill's last ten years because Churchill simply sat like a vegetable in front of the fire and cried It's a fact, you know, that old men cry more than old women. I don't know why. But that's all very relevant and I shall make use of it." Yes, certainly, he says, the passage of time and the prospect of his own old age disturb him "I wept on my 40th birthday Why' Because whoever you are and whatever you imagine you will achieve, you never' achieve what you thought you would. Maybe later on you ROBERT SHAW move into a period of peace and contentment and you say perhaps I haven't done too badly after all But that lasts only a few years. There's this myth about old people being happy He pauses. "Most old people spend their last years in misery There's a rugged self sufficiency and pro- fessionalism about him in the deepest blue eyes, the broad angular face and the sturdy build that seem January 2, Pay Day. If you're holding post-dated gram tickets, then you probably have some major decisions to make on how you're going to distribute that money. That's where TD comes m. You can put that money into one of our flexible instruments and earn good interest while you make up your mind (most give you pre- encashment privileges so you can get to your money at any Alternatively, some investment vehicles, like the TD Retirement Savings Plan, are a good continuing investment TD Retirement Savings Plan: Save for retirement while you save on taxes. Putting money aside for retirement has always been a good idea. And now that you can deduct up to from your taxable income (maximum 20C'C of annual earned income if you are self-employed and do not belong to a pension plan) by putting it aside in a TD Retirement Savings Plan, that good idea sounds even better. The TD Retirement Savings Deposit, for ex- ample, is one of the investment options under the TD-RSP. If gives you high interest (linked to our Five Year Certificate of Deposit rate) adjusted and compounded semi-annually to make your funds faster There's flexibility, too. You can start your retirement plan for as little as and add to it any time you have or more to spare. And it's safe, because it's a bank deposit. TD Premium Savings: Money when you need it. Working hard when you don't. Let's say you haven't yet made up your mind what to do with some of that money. Why not a TD Premium Savings Account? While you're deciding what to do, it's earning a healthy interest rate for you. And when you need it, it's ready and waiting. Deposit Receipts: Our biggest earner in the short run. If you have or more that you know you'll be needing in the next year, don't just let it sit there TD Deposit Receipts pay a high rate of interest for terms of 30 to 369 days. And, since the to get top interest is to predict the term accurately, you may to buy more than one D.R., maturing whenever you think you'll be needing money. You also have pre-cncashment privileges at just a slight reduction in interest earnings Certificates of Deposit: The compound interest option makes your money make even more money. "CD's" start as low as and the interest paid is high. They can be bought for terms of one to six years. The compound interest option means you're making money on the interest your money earns, while income is deferred until maturity. You're not locked in with They all can be cashed in early for only a modest reduction m interest. Six Year Savings Certificates: The long-term earner. These start at less than ten dollars, and are available up to The interest paid is high, which makes them ideal for people who are planning retirement in less than six years, the start-small think-big investor, or for parents investing for their children. With Six Year Savings Certificates you don't need a lot to make it big in investments at the TD Bank. Tordom Notes: The low-cost way to get a different kind of interest. For the or more you think you can spare for a year or longer, this could be your best money-maker ever While interest from CD's is paid in April and October, with Tordom Notes, your money goes into the Tordom Corporation where interest is paid twice yearly on June 30th and December 31st. Or, if you want monthly interest and can invest or more for a five year period, this can be arranged for an interest reduction of only 1 percent While Tordom Notes aren't pre-encashable, if something should come up and you need your money, we can arrange to obtain a market bid for your holdings.

It's there, too, in the measured, firm speech and people respond to it He hangs in there, the Universal crew tells you. Does what he has to, though he may not like it, and keeps the rest of them stable. Even Captain Roy, the old New England master of the Whitefoot, a towing and salvage vessel which serves as "mother" ship to Universal's floating set, is impressed "The he says of these bothersome Hollywood folk, "they have an attitude they're better than anybody. Not Shaw, though He's down to earth In the snug hold of the Whitefoot, Shaw has taken temporary refuge from the rain and chill He gazes through the porthole at the gray sky which reminds him of home in Ireland, and sips the "tea" on the rocks the captain has poured him t6 drive out the cold PAINFUL Another of his books, "The Man m the Glass which he adapted for the stage, is currently being made into a movie For Shaw, it's a painful experience "I can't speak too badly of it The script is an absolute travesty of what I wrote and I'm trying to get my name off the film "I rather foolishly thought years ago that the American Film Theatre would take the play, as they've done others, and open it out a bit and get one with it But they've completely changed it and it's all proselytizing now "The Man in the Glass Booth" deals with a man who's taken for a Nazi war criminal, kidnapped by Israeli agents and tried "The main conclusion of my Shaw says, "is that the law is the law and we must never be above it I believe Eichrnann should have been tried, certainly, but the Israelis broke the law And if they don't behave well, who Captain Roy approaches to tell Shaw that Helen, the movie company's nurse, is climbing down into the hold. "You Roy says, his eyes amused, "they stole her liquor Shaw, falling in with the game, calls out over his shoulder, "Nurse, is it true they stole your liquor'" He winks at Roy. "She's always telling me about the evils of alcohol, Roy The captain nods in her direction and sends an imaginary jiggerful down his throat "No! Really7" Shaw asks And all this time he thought Helen kept the liquor for medicinal purposes The cares and tedium are forgotten for the moment Before he goes out again to face the shark, Robert Shaw can warm his bones and glance at the Boston Globe and chat with Roy And he can muse on some of the things life has taught him TV highlights MONDAY MUSIC: Ian p.m., Ch. 13.
