Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 8, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, Ftbruiry 8, 1975 Mongrel dog plays part in festival troupe play STRATFORD, Ont. (CP) A mongrel dog which spent most of its two or three years rumaging among garbage pails in Kitchener, Ont., is go- ing on a national tour with the Stratford Festival company next week, living like a stage star. The dog will play the part of Crab, the pampered pet in Shakespeare's Two Gentlemen of Verona, which opens in Winnipeg on Monday for a tour of the western provinces, and plays in Montreal before settling into the Avon Theatre here for the summer festival's run. In Shakespeare's play, the dog has an important role as the clownish servant Launce's devoted friend and often the object of Launce's tongue- lashing. The difficulty was to find a dog to play the role. Robin Phillips, new artistic director of the Stratford Festival, auditioned animals for the But none of the stage and stunt-trained dogs he saw filled the role as well. as the mongrel stray found in the kennels of the Kitchener Humane Society. So the dog, mostly black and Juex Canada Winter Games Special Off LARGE PIZZA With the presentation of this coupon.

Phillips has once before di- rected a production of Two Gentlemen with a live dog in the the Royal Shakespeare Company at Stratford upon Avon, immediately laid down the rules for other members of the Stratford company. Nobody but Donkin was to feed or pet him, or even recognize his presence. Crab had only a few weeks to learn to be totally devoted to Donkin, and ignore the strange antics of other actors around well as to learn to ignore the audiences once the production got on stage. Anne Selby, assistant direc- tor of publicity for the com- pany, said Crab is perky and intelligent, with no breed par- ticularly dominant or recognizable.

"I never really understood why they thought I was glam- Miss Home said. "I used to read that about my- self, knowing what I was real- ly like, and laugh. But I gather I'm not the only woman who has felt like that in this business. Do you suppose Marilyn Monroe really thought she was as sexy as people Born in Brooklyn, Miss Home was sent south when she was 3 and her parents di- vorced. She lived first with this, then that relative. She recalled fearing to love any- one too much, knowing she'd soon be sent to live with somebody else. At 14, Miss Home rejoined her mother and spent two years in high school. Then her mother became ill and, at 16, she found a job at the Cotton Club in the chorus of fan dancers. "I was a bad dancer and I only learned to sing later in life." She went on tour singing with Noble Sissle's band, then retired, still a teen-ager, to marry Pittsburgh printer Louis Jones and have two children. Divorced, she was hired by bandleader Charlie Farnet to sing. She went to California to be in a review written by Duke Ellington to open a new theatre. The Second World War came along and the new theatre was nevsr finished. She played a cabaret' 'as big as a postage was spotted by a movie talent scout and signed to a long Jerro contract. Her training got a boost with her marriage to Lennie Hayton, a conductor and arranger at MGM and winner of three Oscars. "Singing in nightclubs wasn't so bad when my hus- band was with she said. "He was always my con- ductor and arranger; we worked together for 20-odd years." Hayton died in 1971. Is she bitter about the days when she had to sit in toilets while waiting to sing or stay in a Harlem hotel when she entertained at Manhattan's Savoy Plaza? Being told al- ways to be grateful because she was the first of her race to be glamorized in movies; singing in MGM musicals for 14 years without a role in the plot so her part could be cut when the movie was shown in the South? "I don't think I'm bitter. I'm only frustrated because it made me waste a lot of time coping with prejudice instead of getting on with the work of the day. "Now the only thing that rathers me is my lack of great oy because I may now get lungs easier than I did." She lives in New York, around the corner from daughter Gail who is married to director Sidney Lumet, and their two children. After Hay- Ion died, her father and her 28- son followed within a 3-month period. Her son's win boys live in California. CAR FAILS ST.

He weighs 170 pounds, the same as when he was riding and guitar-strumming his way through all those Republic westerns. And his light brown hair has only a few strands of grey. "My dad died at 89 and he was less grey than I said the cowboy star. "Maybe that's because we're part Choctaw. You don't see many grey-haired Indians." After almost 45 years as an entertainer Rogers keeps busy with a variety of enter- prises and appears at a half- dozen state fairs and rodeos with wife Dale Evans every year. When he isn't working, he's out in the desert on his motorcycle or exercising his thoroughbred horses. He bowls five or six times a week. All this is despite a heart condition that would send some men into retirement. "I think that's what life was meant to active with the things you like to he said. "I'd rather die with my boots on." Rogers was in town for business affairs and civic din- ners, then was heading back to Apple Valley, the Mojave Desert resort where he and Dale have made their home for nine years. "I never thought I could ever live in the he said. "lean remember when I was making those Republic westerns and we shot loca- tions where it was 100 de- grees. Ole Gabby Hayes was with me then and we were chompin' salt tablets like they were sugar candy." Born Leonard Slye in Cin- cinnati, Rogers spent his boy- hood in the country. He has vivid memories of those Ohio miles through slush to get to school; sitting around the pot- bellied stove in the room that held Grades 1 through 8; thawing out our feet in buck- ets of melting snow." California seemed a para- dise when the family visited his older sister in 1930. On the return to Ohio, in high he was going right back to Los Angeles. He had learned to play gui- tar and call square dances and he found a job singing on an Inglewood radio static. He appeared on local radio with western Rocky Mountaineers, Pioneers Trio and Sons of the Pioneers ac- companying singing cowboys like Dick Koran and Gene Au- try in their films. When Autry had a fight with Republic boss Herbert J. Yates, Rogers was hired as the new western star. From Under Western Stars in 1938 to Spoilers of the Plains in 1951, he made 88 westerns, earning him the title King of the Cow- boys. "Yates insisted that we leave out the Ro- gers recalled. "I never kissed the girl, except maybe on the cheek like a sister. Even then, we'd get tons of letters from boys saying, 'Leave out that mushy stuff..' Trouble was that the girls liked a little romance, so we had to try to please them too." He has not had to be trained to do tricks on stage, except to follow commands of and "sit." "Mostly, he has to follow tion when he is being address- ed directly, which is frequent- ly because Shakespeare has Launce talking to his dog as often as to other characters in the play." Crab lives with Donkin, who takes him on exercise walks and shares his dressing room with him. Rogers' first wife died in 1946 and he married his lead- ing lady, Dale Evans, on New Year's Eve, 1947. Yates, in- sisting that the public would not believe Rogers' wife play- ing his girl-friend in the mov- ies, dropped her from the series. "The studio got a jillion let- ters of protest and Yates had to put Dale back in the pic- tures." After the western movies headed into the sunset, Roy and Dale starred in 101 tele- vision westerns which are still playing reruns. They kept up their heavy schedule of per- sonal appearances until 1958, when Roy developed a heart condition. "I was hunting deer at feet in Utah. I had just shot and cleaned one and the two fellows I was with put it on a carrier with a bicycle wheel to take it down the mountain. I had gone about 150 feet and my arms started hurting. I couldn't get air but I thought it was just because of the alti- tude." He managed to get home and for weeks afterward he felt the same sensations. He entered a clinic and the trou- ble was diagnosed as angina pectoris. For a year his activi- ty was limited. "Now I can do almost ev- erything, except a rough-and- tumble fight in a picture." He tours the country to open new additions to his chain of restaurants. He continues recording, including the re- cent song Hoppy, Gene and Me. He oversees the Roy Rogers Museum in Apple Val- ley, where up to tour- ists pay 50 cents to to view mementoes of his ca- reer, including his stuffed horse, Trigger. He deplored recent west- ems with blood spattering all over the could have an adverse effect on some of the children in the audience."
