Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Canadian color movie nears shooting stage TORONTO (CP) - Shooting may start this spring on a new feature-length Canadian movie, based on the novel The Donnel-lys Must Die, about the true-life saga of an Irish immigrant family massacred by vigilantes near Lucan, Ont. But the color movie, to cost about $1 million, probably won't be shot in the Lucan area, R. E. Frozen meats to be exhibited to Japanese OTTAWA (CP) - Canadian food processing firms will exhibit frozen meats and vegetables to representatives of Japan's hotel and restaurant industry in Tokyo and Osaka early in March, the industry, trade and commerce department announied today. The representatives will demonstrate the frozen and packaged meats and will provide information on handling in attempts to convince the Japanese that Canadian producers can rapidly deliver high quality foods to Japan at competitive prices. Stafford, secretary-treasurer it Agincourt Productions L t d., said here. He said the families involved in the original events in the farming community near London would regard it as a "phen-omental invasion of their privacy-and they're right." Mr. Stafford said no specific date has been chosen for the start of the company's shooting schedule, because all the financing has not yet been arranged. But in announcing a tentative May start, he said the company has already received approval in principle from the Canadian Film Development Corp. to help finance the film. BUYS FILM RIGHTS The Toronto company has bought the film rights from Rev. Orlo Miller of Point Edward, Ont., the author. Last year, Agincourt produced Flick, a horror movie set among hippies and protest marchers at the University of Toronto, at a cost of $240,000, half of it provided by the fed-era! film corporation. The movie was not a box-office success. Mr. Stafford said it is not easy to find financial backers because so many Canadian films have lost money. No casting has been done, although he said it seems as if SOUTHERN ALBERTA THEATRES CARDSTON - Mayfair Theatre "JULIUS CAESAR"-Starring James Mason and Marlon Brando.

Oct mer* out of Ufa - Taka th� family to a movie "every actor and actress fa Canada" wants a part in the film. The company has looked at areas in southwestern Ontario and in upper New York State for .a locale for the outdoor scenes, but none has yet been chosen. Mr. Stafford said the author will help with the script writing, adding factual material, from his files on the original trials. James Donnelly arrived in the Lucan area, an Irish immigrant, in 1847. He killed a man who got a legitimate title to the land on which Donnelly squatted. His son James served two years for shooting a policeman, Another ion William had also been convicted of shooting at an officer but this was at an Irish wedding and he got only two months. In February 1880, sons John and Thomas were waiting trial for perjury and robbery and their parents were due to be tried for arson. On the night before the elder Donnelly's trial day, about 20 masked men slaughtered the patriarch and his wife, eon Thomas, and niece Bridget Then they set the house afire and headed for William's home, John, who opened the door, was gunned down. William, his wife and hired boy escaped. They ntmed several persons as the killers. A dozen men were charged, including a justice of the peace, Only one was brought to trial .and he was acquitted.

CTV network buys rights for football contests TORONTO (CP) - CTV network today purchased the 1971 Canadian Football League television rights for an undisclosed sum.

(CP) - The rarely - performed Shakespearian play, Pericles, Prince of Tyre, will be dropped from the 1971 Stratford Theatre program and replaced with Macbeth, it was announced here. Artistic director Jean Gascon said the change had been made for a number of reasons. "Pericles is exciting to produce, I feel the theatre must produce it . . . but we have no big bulldozer in the season so we decided we w o u 1 d not be able to afford it this year." Mr. Gascon said that last year's "bulldozer" had been the Merchant of Venice, which attracted a 97 - per - cent attendance. "Pericles would have been done if the big-name actor to whom it was offered had accepted," added Mr. Gascon, who would not name the actor. Nor would he reveal the name of the actor who had been asked to perform Macbeth, in case a refusal made it necessary to approach another star.

Count Ingrid out of sexy film scenes LONDON (Reuter) - Ingrid Bergman said here that if she were a young woman again she would not' be an actress "he-cause I would never take my clothes off." The 53-year-old Swedish-born actress told reporters: "We made movies for 50 years and nobody ever minded that we did not show our naked bodies.

They don't need them at all." Miss Bergman is here to appear in a stage revival of George Bernard Shaw's comedy Captain Brassbound's Conversion, which opens here Feb. 18.
