The O'Connor sisters are coming to call, and we're going to have a grand time recalling the good old days of show biz. The O'Connor Sisters-Vera, Geraldine, Kathleen and Madeleine-were big in the great days of vaudeville, which went out of fashion in the late 1930s. They're living in retirement now at Aldenvood, west of Toronto. But with the encouragement of CBC radio producer Doug Byers, they came out of retirement recently to record their reminiscenses and 13 of their songs with another show business veteran, pianist Horace Lapp, now 72. A n hour-long program- There's No Business-will be broadcast by the CBC AM radio network on Friday night, and again on the CBC FM network Saturday, Feb. 23 and 24. It will be part of the series, The Entertainers. The story of the O'Connor sisters begins when they were invited to do a school show in Buffalo after making a neighborhood repuY.tion for their singing. From then on, it was a steady rise to stardom on the U.S. vaudeville circuit, playing on programs with such greats as Sophie Tucker, Buster Keaton, Al Jolson, W. C. Fields, Will Rogers, Jimmy Durante, and most of the Barrymores. They played the big theatres in New York, Chicago, and points in between and beyond. They passed up an opportunity to go to the Follies Bergeres in Paris. Strangely enough, their professional careers were mainly in the U.S., though they came home to Alderwood every summer to their 150-year-old stone house.

They describe vaudeville as "the soul of the theatre and the stage." The stage in the first third of tins century didn't deserve t he reputation some people gave it. The sisters recount their memories with eagerness. Their voices are still strong, though vibrato now tends to give way. Seme of their unforgettable songs, I'm Sitting On Top of the World, Swanee, Memories, Open Up Your Face With a Smile, and I Shouldn't Mind if You Found Someone New are part of theatrical history.

The good news: United States movie-makers are interested in | making more films in Canada ' because investment money is easy to obtain, The bad news: Movies about Canada don't sell well south of the border. "It's all right if you stick to adventure films, but anything about Canada as a country won't catch on," he said. "Its very strange, but Americans dont seem to know anything about Canada. Some of them are very confused about its location. They certainly aren't like that about Mexico." Mr. Gregson, in Toronto this week with Cyrano, the musical he is producing at the Royal Alexandra. Theatre, also had some observations about the city he left in 1948, after graduating from Upppr Canada College, an exclusive school for boys. "Im staggered by the changes since I lived here," he said in an interview. FOUND LIFE DULL The producer, evacuated at age 10 from bomb-torn London during the Second world War, spent eight years attending school in Toronto. He said he found life ' dull during those years. "But now Toronto is a very attractive city,' he said. "It has managed better than many American cities to maintain both the old and the new in its architecture." After leaving Toronto, Mr. Gregson worked for a time as a merchant sailor, spent a few years as a professional tea-taster in Ceylon and Jakarta, and eventually returned to London. There he worked in publishing and finally wound up as a literary and theatrical agent. In 1967, he went to California, left the agency business, and produced the film Downhill Racer, starring Robert Redford. Cyrano, based on Edmond Rostands play, Cyrano de Ber- gerac, stars Canadian Christopher Plummer, who also did the play at the Stratford Theatre in Stratford, Ont., in 1962. The musical is Mr. Gregson's first stage production.
