Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 22, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, February 22, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 7 The sweet Viing' of success Former actor becomes top producer By DICK KLEINER HOLLYWOOD (NBA) If, as they say, "H can only happen in then Hollywood is the place where it is most likely to happen. It's still possible here for a person to-make one picture and magically be transformed from ;a nobody to a over- night. Or even sooner. Consider Tony Bill. His case makes Horatio Alger seem like a pessimist. He didn't start out pen- niless. But his career as an ac- tor was floundering. For a few years, back five or six years ago, he was looked on as an actor with promise. But the promise never seemed to materialize. I first met Tony in ELKS PUBLIC BINGO 1251 3rd AVENUE SOUTH EVERY THURSDAY 8 p.m. 16 GAMES NEW BLACKOUT Played Till Won (No Number Limit) IK WON ON A BLUE BONUS CARD (No Limit Purchased) PAYS DOUBLE No one 16 allowed PUBLIC-UPSTAIRS >ELKS and INVITED GUESTS ONLY DOWNSTAIRS Playing all this Week "SOUTH COUNTRY" Saturday, February 22nd Upstairs "RAYMOND CANADIANS" LABOR CLUB WEEKLY BINQO Eyery Monday 8 p.m. Cash Jackpot in 55 Numbers 10th Game Blackout in 59 Numbers ALL GAMES PRIZE MONEY CAN BE DOUBLED ON A BLUE CARD WORTH 11 Games Prize Money Entry Card All Wood Cards Childr.n Umtor 16 Not Allmnd Bingo will also be played in the club room for members and their invited guests.

H didn't turn out to be a big film and Tony's relatively small part was overlooked. What always stuck in my mind then was his independence. The rest of the company clung together, billeted in a lovely old hotel on the shores of the Danube. None of them ventured out and their contact with the Yugoslavs was minimal. But Tony and his family were different. They rented a house in the town Novisad and Tony's children went to a Yugoslav school and began speaking the language. He came back from that long location and decided he was tired of acting, that he really wanted to be a producer. SHEET MUSIC and BOOKS MUSICLAND COLLEGE MALL Phone 328-3694 The first film he made, "Deadhead was never even released, even though Bill had Alan Arkin as his head. His second, "Steelyard was released and found a certain market, but was far from being a hit. Hollywood is a town which judges people on a very narrow yardstick you are either a success or a failure. Tony Bill had made two films and neither one of them had amounted to much. He was pigeon holed as a flop as a producer. But he kept trying. It wasn't easy, because Hollywood's doors are closed to.failures. Tony Bill found a story by an unknown writer and he managed to get a couple of top actors interested in doing it. The project became "The with Robert Bedford and Paul Newman, and suddenly the failure had the year's biggest success. The men who used to turn their backs now came running to bask in his glory. The doors that were closed swung open. Today, Tony Bill can have anything he wants. OLD TIME DANCE At St. PatricYs Church Basement 318 10 Street South SATURDAY, FEB. 22nd P.M.

"The only reason 'The Sting' was a hit was because it was a great script." Perhaps alone among producers, because of the way "The Sting" began he will read anything from anybody. He encourages unknown writers to send him material. His next film, "Hearts of the is by another un- known, Rob Thompson. It will star Jeff Bridges, Alan Arkin, Andy Griffith, Blythe Danner and Donald Pleasance. Bill, nothing if not enthusiastic, speaks in superlatives. "Jeff is fantastic, Andy will have a whole new film career, Blythe has more star potential than any other girl he says. And Tony Bill will roll along. He's already planning other films he's got his schedule set for the next two or three years. There is a big one called "Harry and Walter Go To New with Mark Rydell directing. There is an untitled love story. There is another script from Rob Thompson "and a couple of other things." Bill is enjoying his success. Mostly, he's enjoying the -recognition in the industry, the fact that now the studios come to him. But there are some material rewards, too. "I've indulged he says. "I made my dream come true. As a kid, I once went on a cruise in somebody's boat to Tahiti, and ever since I dreamed of owning a boat like that. "I dreamed of owning a boat I could really go somewhere on. Now I have it. I bought a 65-footer, the Olinka it was John Galley's boat, and Galley's wife is Olinka and it's unlucky to change the name of a boat. Someday, I'm going on that cruise to the South Pacific." He says he's also indulging his hobby of antique cars, but looks on that as more of an investment than a luxury. He buys old fixes them up, resells them. "And just this he says, remembered something else I want. I had always felt that the height of luxury was to have a phone in my car, and now I think I'll get one." P.
