Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, ftbruwy THE LETHBHIDaC HERALD 11 Joan Water field Surprise expected in Oscar awards WILL this year's Oscar nominations, to be an- nounced Feb. 19 produce any precedents or unusual situations? Will, for example, two or more players from the same picture compete against each other in the same category? It happened last year when Michael Caine and Laurence Olivier were nominated for their performances in Sleuth, then the honor went to Marlon Brando, for The Godfather. A similar situation occurred in the supporting category, in which James Caan, Robert Duvall and Al Pacino of "The Godfather" cancelled each other out and the award went, and deservedly so, to Joel Grey for Cabaret. Will a performer be nominated in both acting categories for different roles? It happened in 1938 when Fay Bainter received nominations (best actress) for White Banners, (supporting actress) for Jezebel. Again in 1942 Teresa Wright was a double nominee for Mrs. Miniver and Pride of the Yankees. Both actresses won the supporting award and lost out as best actress. This may be the year for the nomination of the juvenile. It's happened only once before, in 1962 when Mary Badbam in To Kill a Mockingbird and Patty Duke for The Miracle Worker competed in the supporting actress category. Miss Duke won the Oscar, only juvenile to win an award in Academy history. Several young performers have received the special Ju- venile Award, but these are honorary Oscars voted by the Academy's Board of Governors, not the membership. Recipients include Shirley Temple, Deanna Durbin, Mickey Rooney, Judy Garland, Margaret O'Brien, Peggy Ann Garner, Claude Jarman, Jr Ivan'Jandle, Bobby Driscoll, Jon Whitely, Vincent Winter and Hayley Mills.

Paramount has made a clean sweep of the big best- sellers of the past few years, what with Love Story, The Godfather and now Jonathan Livingston Seagull. The fable about a seagull that aspires to self-perfection has sold more than two- million copies in hardback and topped the best selling charts for uncounted weeks. Producer-director Hall Bartlett acquired the film rights and envisioned making his movie with complete fidelity to Richard Bach's novel, using no animation, no people. He has used trained and wild seagulls as his stars. A large white yellow eyed Glaucous Gill named Larus essays the title role. There should be some recognition, come Oscar time for bird trainer Gary Gero, most certainly for the work of cinematographer Jack Conifer whose work on the film has received raves. The new Disney movie Robin Hood has been praised too as utterly enjoyable and non cutsey. A posse of stars handle the vocal characterizations, including Terry-Thomas, he of the gap in the teeth and. the bristling moustaches, as Sir Hiss the scheming snake counsellor. Those who would put down the amateur performer should consider Terry-Thomas who started out as a clerk and meat salesman, a poor one at that, and only kept his job by becoming a leading member of the company's cherished amateur dramatic society. There is certainly some significance too in the fact that up to 80-per-cent of Canada's professional actors Show Times PARAMOUNT THEATRE ON STAGE NIGHTLY "REVEEN" 800 pm PARAMOUNT CINEMA Short Subjects 7159.20 JOHNATHAN LIVINGSTON SEAGULL. 7 40 9 45 LAST COMPLETE SHOW 920 FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT COLLEQE CINEMA Short Subjects 7 00 9 05 JESUS CHRIST SUPER STAR 745 9.2S LAST COMPLETE SHOW 905 FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT have come from the ranks of the amateur.

Reporter returns to newspaper WASHINGTON (AP) Sally Quinn will rejoin the Post April 1, the newspaper says. It had been announced in January, after she and CBS news parted company, that she would be joining the Washington Bureau of the New York Times in March. Neither Miss Quinn nor the Times would comment on the change in plans for the 33- year-old reporter. In its story of her new assisgnment, the Post says the reason for the New York paper's change of heart "involved, 'Alice Roosevelt Longworth at90.' The interview "had been arranged over a year ago, before Miss Quinn joined CBS, and was written between the time she left CBS and was to sign on at the Times March the Post says. Miss Quinn left the Post last summer to join the CBS show morning news, which trailed NBC's competing today in the ratings. She was hired with considerable ballyhoo, at a reported annual salary, but the ratings did not budge and she announced her resignation in January after five months.

British actress plans to enter election race The Hall Bartlett Film Jonathan Livingst Seagull Bartlett Bach Richard Bach Hall Bartlett FAMILY 119 Neil Diamond LONDON (CP) Vanessa Redgrave, one of Britain's best known actresses, plans to run as a left-wing revolutionary candidate in the Feb. 28 general election. She wul oppose Labor's Reg Prentice, who as shadow em- ployment minister in the last Parliament incurred left-wing hostility for his moderate industrial line, in the East London riding of East Ham, a traditional Labor seat. Another Marxist may also run against Prentice. With a nice touch of irony, the tall, 37-year-old daughter of Sir Michael Redgrave will be campaigning for the Workers' Revolutionary Party in the East End by day and playing a decadent, upper- class Noel Coward heroine in the West End by night. She is currently starring in a glittering new production of Coward's Design for Living, in which three society Bohemians of the 1930s set up an unconventional, rotating threesome in Paris, London and New York. Another irony is that Van- essa, who will run her cam- paign on "the oppression of the workers by the ruling was made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) by the Queen in 1967, the year she played Guinevere in the movie musical Camelot. Vanessa Redgrave is a daz- zling box-office draw whenever she appears. Her career took off like a comet in 1961 when critics were bowled over by her portrayal of Rosalind in As You Like It, for the Royal Shakespeare Company. In 1964 she followed a series of Shakespeare triumphs with the stage version of The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, a role later played on screen by Maggie Smith. Vanessa's movies have in- cluded the trend-setting Blow- up, Isadora, Hie Charge of the Light Brigade, Suitable Case for Treatment, The Devils, and Mary, Queen of Scots. college cinema FRIDAY and SAT.
