Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6- THE LtiHBRIDGE HeRALD Wednesday, February One-in-three chance Canadian film could capture Oscar TORONTO (CP) Nine To- ronto students who wrote, di- rected and acted in a 16-mm. shoestring movie have a one- in-three chance of winning an Academy Award. Their 15-minute production, Life Times Nine, has been nominated with an American and a British entry for an Oscar in the short film-live action category. Canada's only entry, it was financed by a Ontario Arts Council grant and shows the creative talents of the nine, aged 11 to 16 at Hawthorn and Seed free schools. Pen Densham, a professional Toronto film producer who acted as an advisor on the two-year project said he did not think the film was a serious contender "but the kids insisted that we enter it." "It's a beautiful it still comes as a he said after learning the film had been nominated from a field of 70 entries. The production, a collection of nine short films, has already been awarded a Silver Hugo from the Chicago International Film Festival and special jury mention in the Nyon International Festival in Switzerland. It has also appeared on Canadian television. LATE ENTRY But to be eligible for the Academy Award, it had to be shown for at least three days in theatre in the United States with paid admissions, Mr. Densham "So I phoned Harry Smith, our distributor. He had a friend who had a father in Los Angeles who knew a cinema owner who owed him a favor. "Theatres run 35 mm., so I asked, 'Can you run "By sheer luck they were running a 16 mm. short this week so he agreed to fit it into his program. It was just incredible." After the three-day run, the film was rushed to the Motion Picture Academy office at p.m. New Year's Eve, just as the office was last possible moment for entry. He said he is hoping the arts council will send two partici- pants in the production to Los Angeles on April 2 in case the film wins. But the students are not staking too much hope in winning, he said. "We started this thing half in jest, look how far we got. So I figure as long as we don't take it too seriously, we have a chance." FILM SELLS LIFE The film's nine vignettes sell life "as if it were an item you could he said. For example one shows a man emerging from a giant peanut shell. The voice on the film says, "Break out of your shell." Another shows' two old people sitting on a park bench, looking satisfied. "They're the happy Mr. Densham said.

TORONTO (CP) Catherine McKinnon isn't much for low necklines, but with 16 hours of air time a on the variety show Everything Goes on the new Global TV is undoubtedly Global's most exposed performer. "I have never worked so Miss McKinnon said in an interview. "I've no idea how many shows I'm doing. All I know is when I have to be there, and hope that I have the right clothes and script." Miss McKinnon has to re- hearse and sing 12 songs a week, which comes to 180 Cut Green -Beans Green Giant. 14 fI. oz- Scalloped Potatoes Shirrrtfs, 5% oz. net wt Bicks Whole Dills NABOB ORANGE CRYSTALS 3 pins St. Lawrence Corn Oil Fresh from our ROYAL luncheon Meats FRUIT COCKTAIL Twinkle Cake Mix Golden, 15 wt Twinkle Cake Mix Harvest Mirgirini 3 net wt Kraft Cimdian Slices lib. net wt.

She has to reel off crisp details on Canadian history, before doing some comedy acting and inter- viewing. It's a mind-boggling load, but Catherine says she is happy with it because she is doing something new that will stretch her range of abilities. She seems to have been stretching steadily for the last seven years. She made her name 10 years ago at the age of 19 on the Don Messer Show, and then became one of Canada's biggest-selling recording stars, thanks to a beautifully clear, classically trained singing voice. CATHERINE MCKINNON Many, including her recording company, thought that" that should be enough. But Catherine wanted to be a lot more than just the Voice of an title of her album which sold copies. In 1967, she turned down worth of concerts and joined Spring Thaw, to learn how to work on stage. Then she accepted club dates to learn how to handle crowds. Before and after, she starred in three TV series. Now it's nightly variety on TV, with the opportunity to work her way into interviewing, as well as those 180 songs. Everything Goes is by far Global's biggest attempt to create a show of international calibre, Catherine says, and she is convinced it wUl work because it is essentially a variety show rattier than a talk show. Miss McKinnon said the show is a major opportunity for her because it is being syndicated in major markets in the United States and will do much to establish her name there. When asked if she will be satisfied if she becomes an international big name, Catherine said: "I don't think anybody should try to decide for you whether you've made it. You may have reached your but you don't have to explain it to anyone." Shaw festival opening set NIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE, Ont.
