Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Shakespeare film to he produced LONDON (Reuter) - British, and Italian television companies will make a $6.25-million film series on William Shakespeare. The production was announced Monday by Sir Lew Grade, head of the British independent company, Associated Television (ATV), which is to co-operate with the Italian network Radiotelevisione Itah'ana (RAI), in producing 12 hour-long episodes, each costing more than $500,000. Sir Lew said the high costs were largely due to filming taking place at the actual locations of Shakespeare plays-Venice (The Merchant of Venice), Verona (Two Gentlemen of Ve-r o n a ), Elsinore, Denmark (Hamlet), and Scotland (Macbeth).

Mr. Hambourg, who lived in poverty for more than 10 years, continued to play the piano on Sundays at a popular downtown spot called Julie's Mansion until mid-December. He was noted here for his operation of the House of Hambourg, a jazz club, from 1948 to 1962. It was the first after-hours jazz club in Toronto and many players who later became name artists performed there. But as the vogue for jazz here faded, Mr. Hambourg fell into financial difficulty and had to be helped by benefits. A final benefit was held last April. His admirers said it was his personality, more than his nlay-ing, that brought Mr. Hambourg affection. He would sit at the piano, in nondescript clothes and long white hair, eager to play whatever would make people happy. shown in 1975, will be based on the biography of Shakespeare by Anthony Burgess. Sir Lew also anounced that ATV has bought two major film productions of Shakespeare plays and that they have already been bought by American Broadcasting Co. for showing in the United States. They are the Royal Shake-sDeare Companys Aphony and Cleopatra and the National Theatre Company's The Merchant of Venice. LONDON (AP) - A strike against censorship blacked out Britain's commercial television network for 30 minutes. Technicians and cameramen stopped work for 30 minutes to protest the Independent Broadcasting Authority's ban on a documentary about John Poul-son, a former building magnate whose bankruptcy has resulted in allegations of graft in high places. The authority ruled that some people named in tbe documentary could not be shown because the bankruptcy heerina still is in progress. The authority is the government-appointed watchdog for the commercial network. The BBC was not affected by the strike. HOLLYWOOD (AP) - The Association of Motion Picture and Television Producers has signed a new contract with 32 film industry local unons which is intended to encourage filmmakers to work here. ' The contract allows producers to use a nine-person crew in which each member can assist any other member, regardless of what union they belong to. Previously, the various unions drew rigid jurisdictional lines among the film-making jobs, preventing members of different unions from helping each other. Producers complained that these lines forced them to hire more people than needed, forcing costs up. Many began filming in Europe, where union requirements are not as stringent.
