Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 8, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Show forced to close NEW YORK (AP) - Producer Joseph Papp said Tuesday a nationwide television pro- Movie still banned BOLOGNA, Italy (Reuter) -Authorities have refused to allow the controversial film Last Tango in Paris to go back on show in Italy, despite a court decision Friday lifting a nationwide ban on it. Justice officials refused to hand over the confiscated reels of film to a representative of the producer who went to the Bologna law court to claim them Monday. All copies of the film in Italy have been held by the authorities since Dec. 21, a few days after the film went on show. Actor Marlon Brando and his French co-star, Maria Schneider, were acquitted of obscenity charges by the Bologna court last Friday and the court ordered the immediate release of the film, which shows frontal nudity and uses frank sexual language. duction of his modernized version of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing had cut the Broadway show's attendance so badly it will close Sunday. The onetime free Central Park production of the Shakespearean comedy has had 110 performances at the Winter Garden on Broadway. It was hoped the televised production on CBS Friday would help the live production. But Papp, head of the New York Shakespeare Festival, said receipts dropped last week from $25,000 to $9,000, only about $500 came in Monday and advance sales are "infinitesimal." He said the Broadway production is $165,000 hi the red and he can't afford to wait and see if sales will improve.

LONDON (AP) - Producers for the British Broadcasting Corp. (BBC) were ordered Wednesday to go easy on the nude scenes and bad language. The orders came in a new code of conduct entitled Taste and Standards in BBC Programs. Most complaints from television viewers and radio listeners, it said, result from cuss words in plays and light entertainment. It added: "It is principally three words which give offence-bloody, bleeding and God. "There are occasions when such words are gratuitously included to give force to lines or situations. "The BBC regards the use of these in such circumstances as-indefensible." The code says nudity can be included in some rare circumstances but sex scenes should not be unnecessarily explicit. BIG DONATION TORONTO (CP) - The fund-raising campaign for the new Toronto zoo got a big boost. It reached the $2.5-million mark following a $50,000 contribution from General Motors of Canada Ltd., a report said. The total to date represents 4.2 per cent of the $6-miUion objective needed to buy additional animals and new facilities.

GARDENA, Calif. (AP) - The room is huge, its walls covered by red velvet and wood panelling. That shuffling sound comes not from dancing feet but from $7 decks of cards. Crowded around 35 circular tables, chips before them, peering through cigarette and cigar smoke, 280 persons are playing poker. This is the Monterey^ Club, one of six poker parlors in this small suburban city 15 miles south of downtown Los Angeles. The gambling is legal because California exempts five-card draw poker from its gaming statutes. It is the only state other than Nevada to do so. But unlike Nevada Casinos, which are often raucous, the atmosphere here is calm and quiet. With eight players to a table and no house dealers, 230 people can play at once. Others watch, wait for table openings or sper.d time in the restaurants and television rooms on the premises. "There's nof/tag here to get excited about," says Paul Renn, card room manager at the Rainbow Club. Players aren't surrounded with the intense, get-rich-quick action of Las Vegas. People aren't living it up on vacations and conventions. And alcohol is not allowed in any of the clubs. UNCROWNED CAPITAL Draw poker is legal throughout the state on a local-option basis. There are some 400 card clubs in the state, but Gardena, with 210 tables in its six clubs, is the uncrowned capital. Many of the players, particularly during the day, are elderly. For most Hie card clubs are a social gathering spot. Betting limits, fixed by city ordinance, range from $1 to a top of $20. The Gardena clubs, in operation since 1936, make their money from the restaurants and by charging each player a rental fee for the facilities. The prices vary with the stakes, ranging from a low of 75 cents a half hour to a high of $4 a half hour. Together the clubs gross upwards of $15 million a year.
