Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta THI LITHMIDOI HMAID Thimdoy, Jouunry 13, Where have movie queens gone? By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (AP) Where have all lire movie queens gone. That question arose once more last week with the release of the 40th selection of box-of- fice stars by the Motion Picture Herald's poll of theatre owners. These are the guys who sell the tickets, and they know who is drawing and who isn't. According to them, John Wayne is UK No 1. attraction at the movie theatres. That was no surprise. Most observers here opine that the indestructible Duke Is the only star who can attract customers regardless of the vehicle. The sole female to make the Top 10 is Ali MacGraw, who slipped in as No. 8. This is a bit of an oddity, since it is based on only one film, Love Story. Miss MacGraw bad made only one movie before, Goodbye, Colum- bus, and now since. After Wayne, the other Top 10 stars, in order, are: Clint East- wood, Paul Newman, Steve McQueen, George C. Scott, Dus- ton Hoffman, Walter Matttau, Miss MacGraw, Sean Cannery and Lee Marvin. Only one lady out of the Top 10. That's sot the way it used to be. Female stars have topped The Alberta economy better EDMONTON (CP) Most segments of the Alberta econ- omy showed improvements last year, the provincial statistics bureau said in a report releas- ed this week. The report said recent indi- cators show continuing favor- able conditions for the prov- ince's agricultural industry with grain shipments and livestock markets remaining well above levels. Farm cash receipts.to the end of October were million, a 10-per-cent increase over the first 10 months of 1970. Cash receipts frum livestock and pro- duce totalled million each year while receipts from field crops was million for the first 10 months of 1971 com- Quebec government acts to cut snowmobile toll MONTREAL (CP) The Quebec government moved Monday to reduce the accident and death rate in snowmobiltag by announcing more planned, policed recreation areas. More and better trails, in- creased police patrols of the frail areas and encouragement of membership in organized snowmobile clubs were the main features of a program un- veiled after a six-month govern- ment committee study of the sport. The committee's report said that 70 persons died in snowmo- bile accidents in 1970 and 1971. The toll so far this year in Quebec is 20. The committee's report said that 56.1 per cent of snowmobile accidents in Canada happened on roads. Snowmobiles already are pro- hibited from public roads in Quebec, except to cross them. The ban often is ignored. STARTS MARKING TRAILS To encourage the use of pub- lic recreation areas, the govern- ment has instituted a system of uniform trail markers to be ready by raid-January. The committee's report said that there now are miles of trails on private land and miles on public land. In University bar good for morale CALGARY (CP) An en- campus liquor outlet would help boost morale at the Uni- versity of Calgary, a provincial government committee was told here. A brief organized by the uni- versity's board of governors said the value of a permanent licensed facility would be "un- limited" and "consistent with the philosophy of a university." The brief was 'prepared by a committee headed by Dr. G. C. Swann, a board member, and presented to the government group investigating licensed fa- cilities for use by adult stu- dents and faculty. Dr. Swann, replying to sug- gestions that drinking on cam- pus would interfere with stu- dies, said: "We're dealing with adults. If they -want to cut classes to drink it's their responsibility. Nothing at this university is conducive to social interactivity between students and faculty." The outlet, he said, would tighten social bonds and in- crease school spirit. OPPOSITION RAISED Many briefs were presented by individuals and representa- tives of organizations, most of them opposed to a campus bar. One group the 250 member .Latter Day Saints Student's As- sociation, said it is opposed to an on-campus outlet because of the serious problems caused by alcoholism. A part-time liquor facility now is available on campus to students. A temporary licence was issued by the .provincial government last year for its operation for four hours every Friday afternoon. Council meet on videotape FREDERICTON (CP) The regular session of city council was recorded on videotape for the first time here and will bo broadcast on a cable tele- vision system owned by City Cablevlsion Ltd. A CBC cameraman also film- ed a portion of the council ses- sion for use oo television newt, five years the government will have prepared an additional miles of trails. The committee's report said that in 1970-71, snowmo- biles were produced in Quebec, ol which were sold in the province. The industry, beaded by Bom- bardier Ltd., the world's largest producer, provided direct or in-, direct employment to Quebeoers. Figures showed that snowmo- bile registration in Quebec in- creased to in 1970-71 compared with in 1969- 70. Sales tax revenues from snowmobiles jumped mil- lion from 1970-71 compared with million in 1969-70. The report also said use has increased sharply, to an esti- mated people in 1970-71 from in 1969-70, and many of the users are children as young as 11 or 12. It said that 51.2 per cent of Ea.tal snowmobile accidents in Canada involved collisions with other vehicles, while 17.1 per cent involved drowning and 11 per cent involved occupants thrown from the machines. pared with million in the same period of 1970. SALES HIGHER The value of crude oil pro- duction to the end of the third quarter of 1971 was 5875 million, an increase of 23 per cent over the corresponding period of the previous year. Natural gas sales rose 10 per cent to million. Sales of propane and butane, at million and million respectively, were 40 per cent higher. Building starts, at mil- ion, made 1971 the first year that permits in Alberta passed the mark, the re- port said. Manufacturers' shipments to- talled more than billion to the end of October, a 3.4-per- cent boost over the first 10 mouths of 1970. Labor income was up nine per cent, unemployment insur- ance payments up 51 per cent, social insurance payments up 11 per cent, bank debits down slightly, financing of passenger and commercial vehicles up 25 per cent and restaurant re- ceipts up two per cent. To the end of the third quar- ter, retail trade was up by 6.8 per cent from the total for the first three quarters of 1970. Draws protest L'AQUILA, Italy (AP) A city official who painted his of- fice walls to save the city's money drew a protest from the unions Wednesday for doing a professional painter out of the job. With the city budget sev- eral irjllion dollars in the Registrar Ermenegildo de Fel- ice called in the photographers to record his painting act as aa example of individual endeavor. Herald's list in 14 out of the 40 years. The winners were: Marie Dressier, 1933-4; Shir- ley Temple, 1935-8; Betty Gra- ble, 1913; Doris Day, 1960-62-4; Elizabeth Taylor, 1961; Julie Andrews, 1966-7. The heyday of the movie queens came in the. early 1930s. The ladies scored six places in the top 10 for 1933. Marie Dres- sier, Janet Gaynor, Jean Har- low, Mae West, Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford. All but Miss Hartow repeated in 1934. That was the year Shir- ley Temple joined the list. The Second World War years brought a decline in the number of female box-office stars. Pinup girls such as Betty Gra- ble, Rita Hayworth and Esther made the list, and a few dramatic stars such as Bette Davis, Ingrid Bergman and Greer Garson. But the mat- inee audience that supported the "women's pictures" was gone, never to return. Why this male dominance of the movie world? Women's libbers might say it's because of the fact that nearly all producers and direc- tors and most screen writers arc men. That's only part of the story. The real basis for the male- ness of films is the nature of the product. Instead of planning a well-rounded program of vari- ety films, the companies have concentrated on subjects that are considered "sure-fire." Their interpretation of sure fire: sex and violence. The violent films are male- oriented. The same with sex. Women play minor roles as sex- ual diversions in such infulen- tial movies as Midnight Cow- boy, Easy Rider and Carnal Knowledge. In all three, the major concern was the rela- tionship of two men. When a woman ij featured she often plays a prostitute. Ex- amples: Jane Fonda In Mute, Barbra Streisand in The Owl and the Pussycat.
