Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 1, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, February 1, 1975 New 'Walking Tall' film stars Swedish-born actor LOS ANGELES (AP) Swedish-born actor Bo Svenson has' been cast as the late, legendary lawman Buford Pusser in the film Walking Tall, Part II, for which filming starts Feb. 5 in Jackson, Tenn. Pusser first achieved national recognition with a CBS television news report about his battle against crime and corruption as sheriff of McNairy County, Tenn. It led to the movie, Walking Tall, with actor Joe Don Baker portraying Pusser. The film became a hit with a million theatre gross, says producer Charles Pratt. Pratt decided to cast Pusser as himself in a sequel. But shortly before filming was to begin last year, Pusser was killed in a car crash. Months later, Bo Svenson appeared in Pratt's office and was immediately signed to HOUSING CORPORATION Moved To Its NEW LOCATION 519-7th Streets. PHONE 329-0618 play Pusser. Svenson has led the same kind of violent hockey, serving with the U.S. Marines in Vietnam, com- peting in judo championships, racing stock and formula race cars in the South. He was born 33 years ago in Sweden and left at the age of 17. During his wanderings through the United States, Svenson says he sold life in- surance, worked as a lifeguard at Miami Beach, shipped Cuban refugees into Florida, and ran moonshine between Georgia and Florida. A job with a South Pacific troupe in 1966 started his acting career. He studied dramatics in New York and his best break came in the film, Maurie. Then he was picked to co-star with Robert Bedford in The Great Waldo Pepper. Svenson says his perfor- mance in Walking Tall, Part II won't be a carbon not going to play Joe Don Baker or Buford Pusser; it'll be my own interpretation of the role." SERVICE 546 13th St. N.

Segovia already has two sons Andres, 53, by a previous marriage, and Carlos, 4. tm By DICK KLEINER HOLLYWOOD (NBA) She came tootling up for our appointment, late but armed with a good excuse. She had been to the doctor because everything had combined to nearly do her in. And when she enumerated everything that went into it was understandable. Besides, Shirley MacLaine is such a charmer that one warm smile is all she really needs. Who cares how late she is, as long as she's here now. But, as noted, her trip to the doctor was necessary. Poor kid. She's been doing the work of three ladies over the past year. She says it's been a year to make the world wonder whatever happened to Shirley MacLaine. She's been buried away, working on three pro- jects which encompass her three careers, but the public hardly saw her. Then one of the three pro- jects bore fruit her brilliant CBS special whicS was aired the night after Thanksgiving. She'd been working on that for almost a year. Next thing to come from her year of toil will be her second book. Her first, "Don't Fall Off the was an outstanding biographical ef- fort. The second one, she says, takes off where "Mountain" stopped. She's calling it "You Can Get There From Here." ft will be published in March. "This one is she says. "I got a lot out of my system in this one. Writing it .made me feel better." That's two careers per- former and writer and two of the three projects that tied her up for a harrowing year. The third was her career as a producer. She's making a documen- tary called "The Other Half of the Sky" which should be ready to be exhibited in the spring. As she explains it, it is the story of eight American women Shirley is one of the eight and their reaction to China. She is both on camera and behind the camera. "f took 45 hours of she says, "and I had to cut that down to an hour and a half." For a year, she was cutting her China documentary, work- ing on her book and getting herself back into shape to resume her career as a song and dance performer. "I found she says, A ctor weds LOS ANGELES (AP) Ac- tor George Peppard, 45, married advertising woman Sherry Boucher, 29, Thursday in the desert near Las Vegas, Nev., his publicist announced today.

Local AFT Thcatrei PARAMOUNT IA Presentation of The KU Landau Inc.. and Cinetisinn l.tee. I "that you can't do three things at once. Time was my biggest problem. My day was like this I'd get up at ten, edit my documentary all day long, from ten to six, then work on my performing from six until midnight, and write from mid- night until five in the morning. I'd sleep from five a.m. until ten, that's all." No wonder, after a year of that schedule, that she was rundown, susceptible to infec- tion and a steady customer of the doctor. She says, in all seriousness, that she thinks her brain as well as her body suffered from overwork. 'T never took any time out to refurbish she says. She s'ays she thinks she "nearly put myself into the booby hatch." But, she says, she survived and thinks she's stronger now because of her aching year. "I'm a terminal she says. "I'm a slave to the best way to serve time." Out of her trials and tribulations have come three concrete triumphs or at least two triumphs and a new life. She thinks both the book and the documentary are ma- jor efforts. And, perhaps most important, she's back perfor- ming. "It's been 20 years since I performed, she says.- "And I realize now how much I've missed it." She says that now she knows she must do more performing and, at the same time, she is feeling the need to have more fun in her life. Politically and socially concerned, she is pessimistic about the state of the world. Her remedy for survival is to have more fun. "When things get really bad as they will we might as well have she says. "Yes, I'm pessimistic about the trouble the world is in1 but I'm optimistic about the capacity of people to over- come those troubles. She ticks off the troubles the world is facing "world famine, overpopulation, hostility in the mid-East." "Politics is not going to solve those she says. "What the world needs is a whole new set of values." Until that happens, fun fun fun. "When you she says, "that most of what's go- ing on is a pile of y6u can laugh more. You have to to keep your sanity. I am spending more time enjoying sunsets, telling jokes and laughing at jokes, noticing colors, studying about art. That's my idea of fun." She says it's part of her system for hedging against the prospect of a depression, too. "My attitude toward life these she says, "is more vivacious than it's been in years. If you're going to go down, do it while you're hav- ing a good time. Her interest in politics remains that of an interested bystander. She still refuses to run for office, although the Democrats have been after her to run for the past five years. "They figure a woman with a name would make a good candidate. But I doubt that I'd win I don't compromise and what I say is very unpopular."
