Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-11,Lethbridge, Alberta Dylan receives standing ovation from Toronto fans By IAIN MACLEOD TORONTO (CP) - Th«f houselights dimmed, the crowd rose and a small, shabby*looking figure with a shock of curly hair took the stage. Bob Dylan was back in town. Dylan, who has shaped much of the modern folk and rock music movement, was given a two*minute standing ovation before he played a note. An estimated 19,200 fans crammed Maple Leaf Gardens Wednesday night to see the first of two Tonrnto concerts on his six-week tour and the first appearance here in eight years. Backed by The Band, the highly>respected group that began in Toronto, Dylan began with Hainy Day Blues, and the crowd was on its feet again drowning out the first few lines. SANG NEW SONGS The song was one of Dylan’s earUest rock music hits during the mid 1960s, but the 32-year-old singer did not dwell on the past. During the 2 Vi-hour concert, he performed seven new songs. He has written 22 new son for the tour, which covers cities, and plans to try groups of them out on different audiences. After his appearances in Tofonto, Dylan plans one concert in Montreal Friday, his only other Canadian stop. The highlight of the per- formance came when he opened the second set alone on stage, accompanying himself on acoustic guitar and harmonica, instruments which-quickly became his trademarks when he first emerged on the Greenwich Village folk music scene in 1»62. He began to sing It’s Alright Ma, another Dylan classic, and it was too much for one fan who jumped out of his seat, rushed to the front of the stage and bowed at Dylan’s feel. He was quickly escorted away by bodyguanis posted along the foot of the stage. Security at the concert was tight although many fans, un> able to obtain the mall order tickets which sold out within a day six weeks ago, stayed home. Police reported only a handful of gatecrashers, most of whom caught only a glimpse of Dylan before they were evicted. CROWD RESPONSIVE Inside the stadium, the concert closed sp^tacularly as Dylan sang Like a Rolling Stone. During the finale, the houselights were switched on as the entire crowd rose, clapping to the beat of this classic Dylan rock song. At the close, Dylan spoke his only words of the concert; “Thank you and goodnight.” Hundreds of fans arrived from upper New York state for the concert, and one couple drove 440 miles from Sault Ste. Marie, Ont. SOUTHERN ALBERTA THEATRES CARDSTON — Mayfair Theatre “THE DARING DOBERMANS” in color. Starring Charles Knox Robinson, David Moses and Joan Caulfield.

Ridty, JwHiary 11, 1974 — THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD — 7 CBC to retire fictional MP OTTAWA (CP) ~ A fictional MP called George Fraser, portrayed on the CBC, is just too much of a coincidence, real-life MP John Fraser said Thursday. CBC sources indicated the make-believe politician is being retired from any further appearances. His debut was on the CBC Tuesday night weekly satire Up Canada as member for Nookie-in-the Islands riding in B.C. and sleeping with his French-speaking secretary. John Fraser, who called the CBC here Thursday night after his wife saw the program, said the fictional George Fraser not only had a similar name and a similar B.C. coastal riding but an Ottawa address that was almost the same. “Mine is 200 Rideau Terrance and his was 22 Loyal Order of Moose SOCIAL AND DANCE Saturday, January 12th — 9 p.m. Moote HaII — 3rd Avanue North Music — Longncres For Members and Invited Guests Only GERMAN CANADIAN CLUB REGULAR DANCE Sat.

NO THREATS He had had conversations with two senior CBC officials here but “I never at any time threatened or even mentioned a law suit.” It was understood that there had been no CBC check on whether the fictional George Fraser had any real-life parallels. John Fraser said the CBC officials “couidn’t have been more co-operative,” “But I told them: ‘Get my name off that program.”’ It is understood the fictional Fraser and his Ottawa antics was scheduled for three appearances on the weekly satirical show.    ‘ There has often been cause for sadness as one contemplates the career of Rldunl Barton. An actor in the classical mould, Burton “went Hollywood,” missing the challenge of the theatre of Osborne, Pinter and We^er. A shame, jusi as many of his films have been a shameful exploitation of a great talent. For some reason Burton has not really come fo terms with film; for him the close-up has been a confinement, the wider lens has made mockery of his bravura style. Now, in the fairly unpretentious Massacre in Rome. Burton comes up with one of his most satisfactory performances. In "Massacre,” he is a German officer who is surviving behind a patina of cynicism, his role in the Second World War, a soldier who is "only obeying commands.” It is a form of moral insurance, but the premium becomes high when he is compelled to find reprisal victims, 10 Italians for every German stormtrooper killed by partisans. And it is too high when he is required to, himself, lead the execution squad. In this confrontation with the final responsibility, Burton truly reveals himself as the fine actor he is. Marcello Mastrioanni, as the Catholic priest who offers only token support to the partisan cause, then to become part of final moral confrontation, is less wéll served by the role and the fihn, suffering, too, from bis lack of command of English. However, apart from some extraneous intercutting, Massacre in Rome is a worthwhile evening in the cinema. And even at a remove of 30 years, its study of this time of conflict leaves its audience with questions still relevant, still awaiting answers. Now a look at movies slated for early local showing; Cries and Whispers: One of the most acclaimed films of 1972 from Ingmar Bergman. Liv Ullraan, prior to her dreadful misuse by Hollywood in Lost Horizon and Forty Carats, in the hands of the director who perfectly uwler-stands her carefully shaded underplaying. Let the Good Times Roll: A nostalgic look at the world of the Fifties, and a perfect follow up to American Graffiti. The golden age of Rock and Holl, especially for those who remember it as part of their growing-up, capturing the superstars of the era including Chuck Berry, Little Richard, The Shirelles, Bill Haley and the Comets. Joaathan Livingston Seagull: The phenomenal best-seller on the screen and of special interest to all who embraced the book. Biggest plus is probably the cinematography of Jack Couffer {remember this name when the Academy Awards come up), probably the most beautiful nature footage ever. Ash Wednesday; Elizabeth Taylor and Henry Fonda. Not for Liz the simple nose job or the eye tuck. It’s top-to-toe plastic surgery in an attempt to hang on to hubby Fonda’s waning affections. Be warned that the surgery sequences are extremely graphic. The Policeman pleads guilty OTTAWA (CP) — Detec-tive-Sergeant Gordon Hicks pleaded guilty Wednesday to a charge of shoplifting. The 53-year-old detective, a 28-year veteran of the Ottawa force, had been charged with taking four steaks and a can of hair spray—total value $7,77— from a local store Oct. 18. Testimony given by a psychiatrist indicated that Hicks, until his October suspension head of the homicide and robbery squad, suffered from tension and anxiety and had taken tranquilizers the day of the offence. Both the Crown and defence attorneys asked provincial court judge Michael Fitzpatrick to grant Hicks an absolute discharge. Sentencing was put off to Feb. 20.    ' leads have had good reviews for their performances. ne Piper Chiu: On the personal “must see" list.

Suffice to say it has Ingrid Bergman cast as a very old lady, with cbildren at large in N'ew York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. To be looked for, Madeline Kahn, the mixed - up fiance of What’s Up Doc, the divine floozy of Paper Moon, here seen as a harried teacher taking her kids through the museum. But enou^ of movies.

(CP) -Performer’s and writer’s fees for the record, Americans, are being turned over to the Red Cross, Westbound Records, a Detroit-based recording company said today.    . The recording of an editorial praising the United States by broadcaster Gordon Sinclair of Toronto has so far sold about two million copies in the United States, the com* pany said. The editorial, originally aired on radio station CFRB in Toronto, was recorded by Byron Macgregor, news'direc-tor at radio station CKLW here and released in the U.S. The record company said fees so far have amounted to about $150,000. "I thought that the message to Americans had to be said on both sides of the border, but I never intended for it to be a smash hit,” said Mr. Macgregor. “But now that it is, I’m happy that the Red Cross will become the prime beneficiary.” The editorial was recorded and released in Canada about a week ago with Mr. Sinclair reading his own material. A spokesman for the Canadian distributor. Quality Records, said sales are strong. Mr. Sinclair has said he doesn't want any of the record’s profits. “I’ve said from the start, and do repeat, that I neither need nor want money from this little essay,” he said in a letter to the editor of The Globe and Mail. “It has cost me, aside from time about $57 in postage and cost radio station CFRB about $800 , . I’ve requested that any profit go to the American Red Cross.” paramount cinema Showing Sunday 2:30 p.m. Only Doors Open 1:30 p.m. MEZZANOnE D'AMORE IN ITALIAN WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES Starring Albano, Romlna Nini Taranto Adults $2.00.
