Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 2, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta _-:-.--.-,--,- PAGE 7 Pierre Berton, Gordon Sinclair narrators Journalism's razzle dazzle days Those were the days . . . older newspapermen claim, when men like Greg Clark, Gordon Sinclair, Ernest Hemingway, Fred Griffin and Matt Halton roamed the world writing sensational stories for their Toronto Daily Star readers to reel by. Those were the days when the mighty Star lived on Toronto's King Street and daring adventures and escapades were routine. On Sunday, Feb. 4 at 9 p.m. on CBC television's Sunday At Nine series, Pierre Berton narrates, along with Gordon Sinclair, a bouncing, rollicking film about the razzle dazzle days of highly competitive newspaper journalism with its heady romanticism, scoops, contests and screaming headlines, as they unfold the story of the Toronto Star's earlier days when it swashbuckled its way into the hearts of staid To-rontonians. 1:00 0 Let's Make A Deal (0 Movie: Weekend in Dunkirk {) Another World Q) General Hospital 1:30 O Secret Storm O Truth or Consequences Ql One Life to Live 2:00 O ' like Douglas �9 Ed Allen Q] Our Lives 2:30 WH Klara's Korner fig Somerset fjfj Dinah's Place 3:00 17) Take 35 Q| Three on a Matc�.

Phone 327-2097 or 328-0611 Stories about the style and flair of Toronto Star reporters who covered the world's great news events are legend. Gordon Sinclair wrote a lot of them and he tells how he and his colleagues got them. The Toronto Star building on King Street has been scrapped and the great newspaper now operates from a brand new edifice on Toronto's waterfront. But the legends of a flamboyant razzle dazzle reporting still are told. Great Days On. King Street recounts some of them. There's the story of how Greg Clark, "could make the right kind of story out of the gloomy thirties with nothing but his hat." He put it on the sidewalk, kept peeking under it until he fetched a crowd, and then went back to his typewriter to describe their reactions. To bring laughter to the Great Depression, the Toronto Star teamed up Greg Clark and cartoonist 0 Family Court 4:30 CS Dr0P In Q News QQ Bewitched CD Star Trek 5:00 g| Hollywood Squares f=3 News fO Password 5:30 �Q Doris Day fjl) News (7) News Q News 6:00 0 Hee Haw Q) News 0 Movie: Bachelor Flat |0 News 6:30 (0 Streets of San Francisco CD Truth or Consequences 7:00 CD Brady Bunch 0 Sanford and Son 7:30 CD Partridge Family 0 All In the Famiiy |0 Flintsior.es on Ice 8:00 O MASH CD Room 222 0 Carol Burnett 8:30 O All In The Family f0 Mystery Movie CD Odd Couple 9:00 CD L�ve American Style 0 Medical Center 0 Tommy Hunter 10:00 bij FBI {9} News 0 Dean Martin (IT) News 10:30 0 Tonight Show CD Movie: Moon Zero Two 11:00 O News C0 News 11:20 (7) CJOC News C0 News 11:35 0 Crossfire 12:00 CS Movie: Evil Roy Slade 12:05 O Movie: Bus Stop 9 ... for your * VALENTINE 2 m  CARDS O  CANDIES O m  CHOCOLATES �� V Char-ex Cards A Accepled |t McCaffrey's U "The People's \J 9 Drug Store" wL i 418 13th St. N.

When a story was worth it, the Star would send out "platoons" of reporters to write up every conceivable angle in a razzle-dazzle style no other Canadian newspaper could match. Shown top to bottom arc Fred Griffin, Greg Clark, Ernest Ilcmin gway and Gordon Sinclair. They were a few of the adventurous Star writers in those dazzling days. Jimmy Frise to make life bearable for its readers. Frise parlayed the native humor of his rural background into an institution' known as "Birdseye Centre." Gordon Sinclair's romps to far-flung outposts were fun and he had a "gorgeous time." He says: "that was because I travelled the world looking for escapism, you know . . . snake stories, nautch dancers, temple bells and all that stuff. People at home were having a very hard time indeed. But for me, it was possibly the most pleas-and time of my whole life." On royal tours, the Star sent out "piatoons" of reporters. In 1939, orders came to get a picture of the Royal Couple looking at their own photograph blowup mounted on the front of the old King Street Star building. They got the picture, showing Queen Elizabeth and King George VI looking at their likeness from an open car as it drove by. Of such things was the Star made in those days. Not many will argue that indeed, those were the days. Producer and director is Gerald Richardson, himself a Star veteran photographer.
