Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 18, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBHIDGE HERALD TUMdiy, Ftbruary 18, 1975 Had fling in movies Karen is glad to be back on TV By DICK KLEINER HOLLYWOOD (NBA) There are movie people and there are TV people. And there are a few who can do both. But, mostly, Hollywood Hearing? Montreal A free offer of special, interest to those who hear but do not understand words has been announced by Boltunc. A non-operating mod- el of the smallest Beltone aid ever made will be given abso- lutely free to anyone request- ing it.

Box 647, Montreal, P.Q. actors are pigeon holed in one art form or the other. Generally, TV actors say they would give anything for a shot at a movie. Theoretically, there's more class to movies, often more money, more time in the shooting so the results are generally a little better. Karen Valentine, who may be the cutest (in the nice sense of the word) thing to come down the road since June Allyson, has had her first movie fling. And she's very happy to be back in television. It was the old Room 222 series that made Karen Valentine a household name. And she became An Actress In Demand. There were lots of offers for her services. ONE SHOT She took one tor a movie, because, after all, doesn't every girl want to be a movie star? She had never made a movie and figured she owed herself one shot at the golden world of movies. So she signed to play op- I Ke izza 329 Sth Street S., Phone 329-3434 EVERY [Wednesday SPAGHETTI at The PIZZA PLACE Spaghetti Meat Sauce PER ORDER 149 posite Jose Ferrer in Lollipop." (Originally an Ely Landau Organization project, "e'Lollipop" is being dis- tributed by a South African company, Film Trust Ltd., with Andre Pieterfe as producer.) The added excitement was that it was going to be filmed in Africa. A movie! And a free all espenses paid trip to Africa, besides! Wow! But the wow turned to "ugh." "It was the longest eight weeks of my Karen says. She learned a lot about life over there. She learned some facts about the South Africa apartheid policies, for one thing. There was one black South African actor who told her how, during his previous film, he had to sleep in a car because there were no provisions for putting up the black actors. She also learned a lesson in the movie industry pecking order. One of the stars was a dog. Because the dog was im- portant it had its own chair. Some of the lesser actors had to sit on the ground between shots. Above all, she learned that the added time, which makes movies artistically superior, also makes actors bored. Maybe that wouldn't have mattered too much had she been in some exciting location but they shooting in someplace called Himeville. "Himeville has one she says. "That's all. Fora lot of fun you had to drive ten miles to Underburg where there were four stores." When the eight weeks were up Karen'Valentine fled back to Hollywood where her new television series for ABC awaited her. She was delighted to be back in TV, and in Hollywood, where there are a lot more than four stores. Since Room 222, she's been a target for TV producers, who figured on capitalizing on her talent, beauty and appeal and building a series around her. She has made several pilots which, for one reason or another, didn't make it. COMEDY ROLE Now one has come along which has sold and she says she's glad things worked out as they did. This one which ABC is calling Karen will air on Thursday nights. It is, she says, "a situation comedy with some meat on its bones.'' She plays a young worker in Washington, employed by a do-good outfit called Open America, modeled loosely on' Nader's Raiders. She likes the character she's playing, because, like the teacher she was on Room 222, it's a girl who does something. And she's happy about the people who are putting the Fairfield TV and Appliance BOB DERBYSHIRE 1242 3rd Ave. South Phone 328-0082 have opened a service shop under..

PEPSI RADIO AND TV LISTINGS KAREN VALENTINE show together the men (Gene Reynolds and Larry Gelbart) who made what it is, probably TV's fun- niest show. They shot for several days in Washington doing the main titles and some scenes that could be inserted in later episodes (Washington, too, was better than Himeville or They even shot some footage sneakily on the Capitol steps, which is of- ficially frowned upon. "This is a good time to do a show with a Washington set- Karen says. "I think Washington has been pretty funny lately." All in all, this seems to be a good year for the little gin from northern California. Besides her own new show she has begun making guest appearances on variety shows. She was on Bing Crosby's Christmas show and She sang and exhibited a very pleasant voice. And this pleases her because, as a high school girl, she got a D in mix- ed chorus. "I hope Mr. Lewis, who taught that she says, "watches one of my variety appearances." Also making life pleasant for Karen these days is a romance. She's "going steady" with Jon Hager, one of the Hager Twins of Hee- Haw, and an eventual marriage is possible. She and her first husband, Mac McLaughlin, have been divorced about a year in- compatibility and she met Jon in Atlanta last fall. They were both appearing at a benefit. Stardom has brought her a boyfriend, a new show and a few other benefits.
