Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta y, Ftbruary 1, 1971 THE litHMIDC! HERALD 7 Era of movie superstars ends TrimnPh of nostalsia RRir.HTYW Fjwland (AP) I MILAN. Italy (AP) By BOB THOMAS j HOLLYWOOD (AP) A sur-! vey of the new film economics indicates the end of the era of the movie per- sonality whose importance couW attract salaries up to ?1 million a picture. Only one superstar appears to have survived the severe cut in actors' salaries: John Wayne. Just a couple of years ago, Wayne was one of a group of stellar performers who were considered so potent at the box office that producers would pay them the equivalent of mil- lion for a less initial money, but with 10 per cent of the gross receipts. Club members included Julie Andrews, Barbra Streisand, Lee Marvin, Clint Eastwood, Jack Steve McQueen, Paul Newman, Burt Lancaster, Kirk Douglas, Shirley M a c L a i n c, Richard Burton, Elizabeth Tay- lor, Elvis Presley, Sidney Po- itier.

Get more out of life Take the family to a movie your hands." The board, already estab- lished by government order, would be authorized to recom- mend protective measures for domestic industries suffering in- jury from clothing and textile imports if there were an accom- panying program designed to make "the Canadian business more competitive. Mr. Lambert said such pro- grams could influence the avail- ability of styles in Canada. Further, he said, Western Canada has a strong interest in trade with Japan so any move to curtail clothing imports from that country "would be looked upon with a considerable degree of alarm." Bruce Howard, parliamentary secretary to Industry Minister Jean-Luc Pepin, replied that the new board would not be origi- nating programs but examining those proposed by the industry. Earlier. he had said that about 13.400 of the work- ers emnloyed by Canadian tex- tile and clothing industries are in Western Canada. Mr. Lambert was told that the legislation would require the board to include regional inter- est among other factors when weighing claims of injury from imports or proposals for protec- tion and reorganization of the domestic industries. Fall fatal at Edmonton EDMONTON (CP) George Milholland, 21, of Edmonton died in hospital as a result of injuries received in a fall Jan. 24. He was x raying welding joints inside a tank when he that tile million-dollar salary lias vanished in "99 per cent of the cases." he added, "there are rare people like John Wayne who receive money like and are worth it in terms of real money they bring in at the box office." Paramount has the studio which employed the most mil- lion-dollar stars. That policy changed when such films as Darling Lili, Paint Your Wagon and On a Clear Day You Can See Forever failed to achieve hit status. For Paramount's newest hit, Love Story, the stars, All Mac- Graw and Ryan O'Neal, were paid apiece. Some studio heads now will not consider star names for roles. They argue that some ol the biggest recent hits have been without big star names: The Graduate, Easy Rider, M- A-S-H, Midnight Cowboy. "I don't want any leading ac- tors over says one produc- tion boss. "The young movie au- dience can't identify with any- one older." A new pattern is developing for employment of stars. They are asked to work at little or no salary, taking instead a share of hopeful profits. Burt Lancaster and Dean Martin each appeared in Ai- port at less than their usua terms in return for 10 per cent of the profits after the produc- tion paid for itself. The likely return for Lancas- ter and Martin: million apiece. NEW PRESIDENT WINNIPEG (CP) Appoint ment of Dr. Harry E. Duck worth to succeed the retiring Dr. W. C.

The 4-H club today is no longer a "boy-calf1 undertak- ing, he said. Activities range from welding to driving power toboggans and "horse clubs are coming on strong." 'We don't try to turn mem- bers into future farmers. They learn by doing, learn to mix and get self-confidence." Mr. Lalonde said he is not trying to change the image of 4-H, but" would like to update it. There are many high school and college students "running around with placards" today but in 4-H "if you're going to criticize, you have to find some alternatives." Members of tbe basically farm-youth organization are not trained, he says. "They are training themselves with some guidance from our leaders."
