Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 15, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBHIDGE HERALD Saturday, February 15, 1975 Gets chance at acting Dancer changes forte By WILLIAM GLOVR NEW YORK (AP) Joan of Arc has come down through the ages a heroine known for audacity, pluck, de- termination and chronic celestial visions. Ann Reinking lists among her ojvn traits adaptability, poise, persistence and an oc- casional nightmare. i Miss Reinking is preparing to portray the Maid of Or- leans in a Broadway musical of prime career importance. Until now the Reinking forte has been much dancing, some singing and no acting. "You can't stand still in one spot, no matter how good it she said. "You have to do something new, keep trying." In true show-business tradi- tion, Ann almost didn't get the chance to demonstrate dramatic potential. At her first audition the director wrote "no call-back" after her name. He reconsidered, Ann later learned, "because he couldn't find anyone else that whole day." So, along with several others, she was summoned back. After singing four songs from the score and reading some lines from the book, she got the nod to be Joel Grey's leading lady in Good Time Charley. The musical is due Feb. 24 at the Palace theatre following a tryout tour FOUND OWN WAY It centres upon the feeble princeling whom Joan in- spired into becoming France's Charles character well-suited to Grey's in- ADULT BOOKS FREE CATALOG.

As for suitability as Joan, the lissome 25-year-old bru- nette has deliberately avoided looking at filmed perform- ances by others so that she can find her own way. "Since gettng the part I've done a lot of reading about her.' One thing I had common sense, was pret- ty realistic and definitely believed in her voices. "I'm hopeful the needed characteristics are inside of me, naturally." Her Episcopalian up- bringing provided "some ex- posure to religious fervor" which helps her to understand total pious obsession. The fa- mous .trial and immolation won't occur make a decent .exit and come back once later to help Charles again." Ann even saw a certain Tightness for the part in her dominantly dancing back- those days danc- ing was popular and Joan did a lot of dancing herself." DANCING MINIMAL In the musical, however, the only planned' dancing for her will be a brief whirl during one of the triumphant battle scenes. Which is fortunate, in view of a mishap Miss Reink- ing suffered shortly after sign- ing her contract for the part. During a performance of Over a'lively musical about the Second World War home front in which she had been gyrating sine last Octo-. ber, Miss Reinking fell and cracked a vertebra. Convalescence didn't affect the rehearsal schedule for Good Time Charley. She prob- ably wouldn't have let it un- der any circumstances. Be- hind frequent laughter and banter, lurks resolute pur- pose. "I did it'on my Miss THE LETHBRIDGE PUBLIC LIBRARY Presents "A Consumer Guide to Stereo" 4 hour sessions commencing Tuesday. February 18 at 8 p.m. LIBRARY THEATRE GALLERY ADMISSION FREE! Reinking recalled of her ar- rival in New York from Seat- tle seven years ago in pursuit of an ambition that began when she saw ballet for the first time at age 10. Ann has five brothers and a sister and her parents weren't happy about .her desire for dancing lessons. An aunt who had nurtured operatic ambi- tions of her own came through with birthday however, and subsequent events justified the gift. PARENTS RESIGNED "I never stopped classes after Miss Renking said "and went after scholar- ships." By the teen years she was with the San Francisco Ballet Company. "I'd announced when I was 13 that I wanted to go to New York instead of gave my parents plenty of time to get conditioned." She worked as a waitress for six months, "saved my money and flew to New York." A month later she was in the front line of the ballet corps at Radio City Musical Hall. "When the curtain went up I had no idea the place was that big. Ail I could see was a million and one exit signs." She moved on to a tour in Fiddler on the Roof, having decided road work would be "a marvelous way to break in, learn the ropes and get all the giggles out of you." Once was enough, however, and aside from some stock turns and a brief marriage, Miss Reinking has concen- trated on Broadway in such items as Wild and Wonderful, Cabaret, Pippin and Over Here! Every once in a while Miss Reinking has a recurrent dream about having to go into show suddenly without cue, preparation 'or proper cos- tume. "I don't let it worry me. I think everybody has some- thing like that."

Unadorned by airs, attitudes Top actress unique type By LUCINDA FRANKS New York Times Service NEW YORK Film gives Liv Ullmann a misty in- nocence. The camera catches and holds each expression in the kaleidoscope of feeling that passes in a moment over her face. In person, however, it is a kind of pioneer plainness that comes through. Tall, earthy and pale skinned. She stands forth as raw self un- adulterated by pastes, polishes and powders, un- adorned by the airs and at- titudes that you might expect to one of the world's most acclaimed actresses. VOICE STRONG She totally lacks that sense of urgent self importance that many stars carry with them off stage or camera.

"I like to do plays and pic- tures that talk about real problems, about people being put on shelves and trying to get off them." She said the other day "especially in America, we have everybody telling us what to be you shouldn't be a Communist, you should have blond hair and not many people know who they really are." And Liv Ullmann is here to do exactly the kind of play that concerns her. She will open March 5 at -Lincoln Centre in Ibsen's "A Doll's her first stage per- formance In English, playing a woman who breaks out of her hermetically sealed marriage to find out who she is. When Joseph Papp made a trip to Norway last year to coax her back to his New York Festival Theatre, it was she who chose the play. She had been giving the farmers in the back fiord communities of Norway a glimpse of the flowering of Ibsen's Nora on a bus tour of the play that spring, LIVES ACTS She thinks of herself as liv- ing what she acts. And in some ways, acting what she lives. It is all a part of the whole. Her last'and highly successful movie Ingmar Bergman's "Scenes From A and her present effort in "A Doll's are contijuous with her own concerns and pre oc- cupations about male female relationships. She likes to compare the marriage of Nora and Helmer in "A Doll's House" with the marriage of Johann and Marianne in "Scenes From A Marriage." "Marianne was the one who benefited from Johann's leav- ing as though she, like Nora, had done the deserting." She said, "its between bites of a roast beef sandwich during a rehearsal break at the Manhattan Theatre Club on east 73rd Street. Often the one left with the disaster, who pulls herself together, and grows. Johann wanted to break out of his role also, but he only did half of what was necessary he thought he could find himself through other women and he rebuilt nothing." STRUGGLES Like most women, Miss Ullmann said she struggles against a deep inbred feeling of guilt. She is trying to work this out in her life, in her films, by crawling inside the skins of Bergman's Marianne or Ibsen's Nora. She has a "bad conscience" about spending so much time away from her 8 year old daughter "that's because all my life I've read in books that a mother should stay home with her child. I try to con- vince myself that one way of life is not right for all people, that maybe its good for me and my child to-live the way we do. Yet it goes very deep, this guilt, and I always feel somewhere that I'm doing something wrong." Why does America not have her equivalent? Why have young female stars almost vanished from the screen, giv- ing way to the tough, male gruesome twosomes of such hi-jinks films as "The It probably has something to do with the changing status of women, she thinks. "Its noi that there are not talented women in America, its just that producers are not giving them parts, she commented. "They cannot show themselves if they don't get a chance." By DICK KLEINER HOLLYWOOD (NBA) Every few years a plum part comes along and every actor in town who fits the physical description (and many who don't) clamor for it. This year, it was the part of January in the film version of the late Jacqueline Susann's novel, "Once Is Not Enough." The girl who got it was Deborah Raffin, a tall, slender blonde with a face like a spring breeze. You may have seen her in "40 Carats" or "The in which she did admirably. Now "Once Is Not Enough" should make her one of the top young actresses in town. Deborah Raffin is a Los Angeles girl, the daughter of an actress (Trudy Marshall) who quit acting to marry a man named Phillip Raffin, who was in the meat business. Deborah says her mother may be resuming her career. She had small parts in both "The Dove" and "Once Is Not Enough." Deborah grew up thinking idly of acting some day but it was more of a fantasy than anything else. But, when she was a teen-ager an agent spotted her and talked her into turning the fantasy into a reality. She is enjoying acting but says it's hard for her to find "meaningful" parts. "Most parts for girls in my age says the 21- "are trash." To avoid trash, she had it put in her "Once Is Not Enough" contract that she would not do a nude scene nor would she permit anyone to DEBORAH RAFFIN double a nude scene for her. "They tried to get me to do one she says, "but I refused. I would do one if I felt it was vital to the story but this wasn't. I feel imagination is far more provocative." After the filming was com- pleted producer Howard Koch came to her and said he agreed with her. The scene they wanted her to do nude has her bare-shouldered and you can use.your imagina- tion for the rest of it. She says she's not worried about the impact of stardom on her life. "My family and my husband (record producer Michael Viner) will keep me from getting a big she says. "As for money, that doesn't bother me, either I've always had everything I wanted." Sun use to heat homes economically feasible MIAMI, Fla. (AP) The use of solar energy to heat and cool homes already is economically feasible and us- ing the sun in place of energy obtained from oil and coal is not far off, experts say. "I'll have to concede, however, that the rise in the cost of conventional energy has made solar energy feasi- ble faster than out program said Raymond H. Fields, director of the National Science Foun- dation's office of public technology projects. The foundation has granted million for research into solar energy use. Fields told a University of Miami conference some home solar heating systems already can justify their cost with fuel savings within three years. The systems were not being installed because mortgage lenders preferred to keep the original cost of a home as low as possible. Featured attraction at the conference was Dr. Felix Trombe, a pioneer of solar energy research. Trombe is director of the solar furnace projects at Mont Louis and Odeillp in the French Pyrenees. Trombe said harnessing the sun to make electricity and in- dustrial heat is not far off. He said domestic and low temperature applications of solar energy are already prac- tical and only need concentrated effort to make them competitive with conventional energy.
