Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 26, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD, February 26, 1975 Broadway super-agent tireless party-hopper By WILLIAM GLOVER NEW YORK (AP) "I have this enormous fund of sympathy for said Milton Goldman, "and I need to be needed." The parlay has made him a Broadway super-agent, tire- less party-hopper and name- dropper extraordinary. The people he keeps pluck- ing from "a phenomenal memory" snare this common bond. All, at one time or an- other, have been Goldman clients. The current list includes Lord Olivier, Anthony Quayle, Lynn Redgrave, Eileen Her- lie, Maureen O'Sullivan and Maureen Stapleton. Others have been Faye Dunaway, whom he spotted as an under- study, Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau and Lee Marvin. said Goldman, "they are all strangers in a world they never made." Which is where, for a 10 cent commission, he comes in, to provide security and tender care. As vice-president in charge of talent and theatre activities for the big talent agency In- ternational Famous, suave and ebullient Goldman's first responsibility is to find roles and work out contractual intricacies. "That's only the begin- he explained. "Once they're in a job the hand-hold- ing begins. I'm protector, analyst, escort, friend provid- ing stop short of lover only." Goldman feels a chronic keen responsibility for every- thing from finding clients the right accommodations to get- ting up in time to watch a morning TV appearance. "They're out there alone so he said. "The fact somebody is back in New York thinking of them is reassuring and gives a sense of contact and continuity which is very important. "Basically they are all in- secure people. They wouldn't be actors if they weren't. Be- cause an actor has to go out every day and prove himself, in front of an audience, and that's not a mark of a very secure individual." Just how many talents he is responsible for at a given mo- ment Goldman never knows. For one thing, 'International Famous recently acquired several other firms. For an- other, the Los Angeles office takes care of clients out there. Most overseas duties are handled by field represen- tatives. Goldman takes over when any big or little name arrives in Manhattan. Goldman, 60, cannot pin- point how he got turned on to theatrical excitement as a youth in New Brunswick, N.J. "It was a small town and there was a need in me for, this kind of he said. He devoured fan maga- zines, memorized casts. Before he graduated from cpllege in 1936 with a Phi Beta Kappa key, Goldman was haunting the second balconies of Broadway shows. At inter- missions he would mingle with lobby crowds, a device that enabled him to sneak in and see a second act free. He watched the last half of Cole Porter's Jubilee seven times. Alter a short, unsatisfying stay at the Yale University Drama School, the fifth off- spring of Hungarian Jewish parents settled down to work at a service station. It wasn't until 1947 that Goldman stopped pumping gas. Through Arnold Weiss- berger, a theatrical lawyer, the fledgling agent hired on at a talent' office in Manhattan for no salary, J25 weekly ex- penses and a promise of. 30 per cent on anyone he signed. A couple of years later he went into partnership and in 1955 opened his own office. It flourished and later was the first acquired in the series of mergers that culminated in International Famous. "I don't really do it now for the money, because I am well he said. "I see myself as doing social service among actors. There are many ag- gravations but also many pleasures. "When a client leaves for no good reason you're upset and hurt because nobody likes re- jection. But it happens if somebody comes along and sells a siren song. Actors are vulnerable to flattery." Goldman gets disturbed, too, when demanding clients force him to do "little chintzy things that almost make my stomach such as pro- viding free liquor in the dress- ing room or extra trans- portation. "I understand the psy- he said. "They'reso often put upon that when they get the upper hand they make demands with a vengeance." He and Weissberger share bachelor digs and annually trek to England and the Con- tinent for business parties and shows. Celebrate our 75th steakhouse opening! SAVE55C ON A RIB-EYE STEAK DINNER. Reg.

Louis Nuber, director of Ex- position Galleries in Van- couver's Gastown area, said the owner of the collection wishes to remain anonymous until most of the collection is sold. He said the. collection is housed in a mid-western United States city and buyers must travel to the site to view the paintings. There is speculation the owner is a Chicago lawyer who owns paintings by such masters as Giovannia Bellini, Correggio, Daumier, Durer, Van Dyck, Rubens and Titian. Some of the paintings include Bellini's Sacred Bernini's Portrait of a Young Man, and Durer's1 Christ in Gethsemane, Pianelio's Portrait of Visconti and Rembrandt's The Pirate, each selling for million. Mr. Nuber said the owner has bypassed the big-name art dealers in New York and London because he has been dodging art thieves. In letters sent to museums, Mr. Nuber Said, "the owner has assembled this collection over a period of 40 years and many of the pieces have been vaulted long as 30 years. Prior to their purchase by the present owner, some of the pieces had not surfaced for hundreds of years." Mr. Nuber said most of the pieces have been recognized by art authorities and sub- jected to scientific dating to support authentications. "The current appraised ivalue considerably exceeds ?150 Mr. Nuber said. Educational technology use by teachers abused EDMONTON (CP) Educational technology has not been properly used by teachers, says Larry Shorter, head of Alberta's Educational Communications Corporation. "It's been add-on technology rather than an integration of technology into he told the North East Teachers' convention. "Or it's been a token approach to the use of educational technology. "You are afraid the wrong people will be pushing the but- tons but you are the one who will be pushing the Mr. Shorter stressed. He said no teacher can be replaced by a machine, but with redirection and imagina- tion educational technology can be used Without threateh- ing humanism in the classroom. Dr. N. P. Hrynyk, acting ex- ecutive secretary of the Alberta Teachers' Association, says Alberta's teachers do not see classroom television as a threat. But they want to have control over the use of televi- sion as a resource, he said. Factors limiting the use of television in classrooms include small screen size and the fact that programming "assumes the audience is at tbt Mine level of background, knowledge and ability." "Television is not going to reduce the cost of instruc- but in some cases it may be the best instructional media, he said. Death defined CHICAGO (AP) The American Bar Associaion (ABA) approved on Monday a resolution calling for a un- iform definition of death.

The current definition in 46 states dating to 1906, defines death as the stop- page ol the heart.
