Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 31, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta ]VOW don't be they said. "It's sentimental. The whole family cried. I've been to ECO it twice already." These were my pro viewing instructions from friends about the movie, Love Affair, which last week settled into a fairly lengUiy stay at the Paramount Cinema. Well, what's a person to do? Starring Ryan O'Neal (the Rodney Harrison of TV's Pey- ton Place scries) and All Mac- Graw, the rich beauty of C.ood- bye, Columbus, Love Affair is indeed sentimental. The story of an ill fated pair of university students, it is put together with large dollops of schmaltz and some not too successful acting. But it is also entertaining, touching and unfettered in its simplicity. More important, it takes for its mam subjects, love and death, two components of the human heart which have lately bran replaced in movies by their less poignant sidekicks, sex and violence. O'Neal is Oliver Barrett IV, a young Harvard law supcrjock bound for success despite the strictures of his rich back- ground and ovcrachieving fath- er. MacGraw is a "social zero" Radcliffe music student loaded down with brains and the "smart ass" repartee which passes for university in-talk. They court, marry, and, on the threshold of an easy life and what looks to a solid marriage, they are hit by trag- edy. The plot is so straightforward it demands sensitive acting on the part of the main pair, and they both, O'Neal particularly, come through with flying coi ors. MacGraw is a good looking j girl and at times manages just EMBASSY LOUNGE HARRY BAILEY at the ORGAN TUESDAY thru SATURDAY IMPERIAL LOUNGE Direct from the Philippines "ROSALIA PASCUAL" MONDAY thru SATURDAY PIRATES COVE CABARET Wed.

From the movie version of Love Affair came the bifgcst first-edition bestseller in Amer- ican publishing history. Both may signal the remakes of such heart pumpers as Back Street and Magnificent Obses- sion. But then heart pumpers have been sadly absent in recent years. Producers may soon, and hopefully so, catch on to the fact that emotions and not their images in skin are what still matter to the paying public. Scrooge, a British produced musical version of Dickens' A Christinas Carol, deserves to have been belter treated by Lelhhridge movicg o e r s, espe- cially those who clamor _ for family-rated pictures. Th3 movie finishes tonight at the Paramount Theatre after a week of poor audience atten- dance. It isn't that bad a show. Starring Albert Finncy as the mean old skinflint, Scrooge is notable for its special effects and Finney's valiant if vain at- tempts to match the non sing- ing pcrtayals of Ebernezcr by Frederick March and Atetair Sims. The music written by Leslie Bricussc of Doctor Dooliltle no- ;oriety, has to be heard to be forgotten, and Alex Guinness as Marley's Ghost walks as if he'd taken instructions from a hula dancer and his hips were still chafing from the grass skirt. Still there's very little in Eng- lish literature which matches Die-ken's masterful depiction of the transformation of a man's character. Dickens was too good a story- teller lo be done in even by Guinness' quivery hips or Bri- eusse's non-music. NOTES: TV pro-ams often seem to try lo manipulate view- ers' emotions i.e. grafting con- flict on a slory where it doesn't fit. A show which challenged this criticism was a tribute last week to Joan host of CFCN's daily In Conversa- tion. Mrs. Waterfield seems to have been connected, either as employee prc-molcr, or general unpaid help, with every service club and media in town. Start- in" ini'.K'iictly with an interview wilh Dick .Mdls. the city's cul- tural affairs superintendent, the show KC-BI turned the tables on the .Mrs. t e r- fioid. About 20 representatives of city organizations turned up lo prox'iil her with roses and thank her for her work w i t h them. Also along were her hus- band, Tom, and their three chil- dren. The 30 minutes turned into a heart wanning, charm i n g show, ii was one case where the medium cut cut the gim- mickry and revealed a person, tears, speechlessness, embar- rassment and all. January is the month when all AM radio slafions must adhere to the Ca- nadian Radio Television Com- mission's demand that 30 pel cent cf music schedules be Ca- ladian content. And our greetings, a sincere expression of gratitude to our customers.

The only other survivors of the disaster were three red-tailed hawks kept in outdoor cages. Ivor was in fair condition in hojpital, suf- fering from shock, smoke inhal- ation and frostbitten feet.

J OTTAWA (CP) Lack of government action against broadcast cigarette commer- cials could mean a bonanza for Canadian radio and television stations after Jan. 2. That is the dale on which United States broadcasters _ will stop carrying the commercials. But authorities here say there is nothing to prevent tobacco companies buying time on Ca- nadian radio and TV outlets within range of large audiences along the border. The federal government is; planning action but the legisla- i tion has run into delays, mainly j parliamentary debate en emer- gency legislation to deal with Quebec terrorism. Although the government an- nounced Oct. 8 it planned to sponsor a bill concerning ciga- rette advertising, it has not yet been introduced in Parliament. BANNED BY CBC The publicly-owned CBC insti- tuted a ban on cigarette com- meicials on its networks. Simi- j lar action was taken hy some individual private broadcasters but not hy all CTV network sla- tions. j Health organizations say pri- vatoly they detect a lessening of interest by the federal govern- j ment in the anti-smoking cam- i paign. i An informal committee of major health organizations had been meeting federal health of- ficials to ofi'er advice and to help plan and distribute anti- smoking materials. But the committee has noi met since last April although it adjourned at that time in antici- pation of another meeting in September, to be called by fed- eral officials. In addition, publication of a collection of anti-smoking expe- riences as part a campaign en how to quit smoking has been delayed by the health de- partment. Seme 80 persons contributed essays on how they quit. The book suffered budget cuts and, for a time, the whole project was threatened.
