Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 17, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THELETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, Jinutry 17, 1975 U.S. takes 80% of film profits I Joan Waterfield's v Entertainment eye I TORONTO (CP) Thi chairman of the Council ot Canadian Film makers said Thursday that the United States, which controls the Canadian film market, is not interested in putting profits back into the Canadian in- dustry. Peter Pearson told city council's executive com- mittee that Canadians spent million on movies in 1972, million of that in Toronto. "Eighty per cent of that money goes straight back to _ the United he said. He said 13 major English language feature films were released by Canadian film makers in 1972. This declined to six in 1973 and four last year. Gordon Pinsent, a Canadian television and movie actor, said the group brought its problem to city hall because of the large Toronto market and constant rebuffs at provincial and federal levels. The executive committee voted to endorse recommen- dations from the film The LARGEST ASSORTMENT of imported styles in LETHBRiDGE makers to senior levels of government, including a raise to 15 per cent from 10 per cent in the federal tax on profits made from foreign films shown in Canada. The group also wants the federal government to con- sider buying Famous Players of Canada and the provincial government to levy a 15 per cent tax on profits from all films shown in Ontario. Licence for concert refused BOSTON, Mass. (AP) Mayor Kevin White has refus- ed to issue a licence to allow the Led Zeppelin rock group to hold a concert at Boston Garden Feb. 4. The decision was attributed to a disturbance last Tuesday when about persons waiting for tickets threw bottles on the Garden ice, slashed a fire hose, broke into refreshment concessions and emptied fire extinguishers. YAMAHA ORGANS New and Used I COLLEGE MALL Phone 328-3694 I Film patrons will cheer The Dove TV highlights When did you last stand up and cheer a movie? That nifty piece of publicist's flackery was used to some considerable effect to sell the dreadful if money making Walking Tall. Let it be said now that you can cheer with a grateful heart a real charmer called The Dove. Cheer a film that manages to combine a fine adventure story with an affecting love story; be grateful for a movie that transcends the usual well meaning but bland pap that is served up as all audience fare. And indeed the round the world journey of 17 year old Robin Lee Graham in a 32 foot sloop is, despite its adult rating; a fine family film. The opening is slow although director Charles Jarrott gives hint of thrills to come as the sloop is almost rammed by a ship looming out of the darkness. Joseph Bottoms seems initially to be too much the All American boy, all splendid teeth and sun bronzed muscles; Deborah Raffin just another pretty girl required to puff up the romantic aspect. But as the movie progresses the youngsters become engrossingly believable and the narrative moves well between sea and shore. The whole approach results in first rate, clean enter- tainment. Bonus, of course is in the magnificent photography capturing some of the most beautiful untouch- ed areas of this crowded world. And in the feeling that there are still worlds to con- quer. But the real challenge is what the young Graham finds in himself, not just to prove himself a man but to find himself as a person. Swamped and mast less in the hurricane, shouting "The Ancient Mariner" to an oily becalmed sea in the Doldrums, breaking under the strain of the close confine- ment of the cabin and the pressure of a story hungry magazine, yet going on. All the cameo roles haye been well fitted especially the brief bit by Dale Cults as a reporter hesitant to intrude the grief of Patti. And there's that cat. If there should be star billing it should be for the paranoid- feline which shares part of the journey. Never has there been such an animal personality. That darn eat spits, growls, grins in devilish merriment and manages to break the heart. Best of all The Dove sends you out of the theatre feeling good, and how long is it since that happened? Another great sea story and one you may be missing because of its time slot (Ch. 7, Sunday, 2p.m.) isTheOnedin Line. A rich, romantic story from BBC-TV, it captures the flavor of the 1870's with the in- finite detail present in such imports. So far we've met' James Onedin (Peter Gilmore) his wife, Anne Stallybrass who was a beautiful Jane Seymour in the acclaimed Henry VII, Daniel Fogarty (Michael Billinglon) in love with James' sister Elizabeth (Jessica Benton) and the third corner on that triangle Albert Frazer (Philip When first produced the critics felt The Onedin Line would not hold up as a series. Well they were confounded and the show has spread into three series (we're seeing one just sold to 10 countries and in a neat reversal became a best selling book. Still to be met are Charlotte, daughter to Anne and James, Leonora Biddulph as much a feminist as Elizabeth, tough old sea dog Captain Baines and a host of characters that will color and give further flavor to the con- tinuing story.

This last is being seen in Eastern Canada, and can be viewed in the west where PBS is available by cable. When it will reach the local channel is questionable. Top movie for the week on television is certainly The Heartbreak Kid (Sunday, Ch. 11, 8 Directed by Elaine May it stars her daughter Jeannie Berlin. But there's no nepotism here for Miss Berlin's perfor- mance got her an Oscar nomination. Top notch too are Charles Grodin, Eddie Albert and surprisingly enough the beautiful if stolid Cybill Shepherd. Mature enter- tainment, wildly funny yet surprisingly touching. On the lively stage, an ex- citing switch in high school production. For several years high school drama has reach- ed the wider public via the an- nual school musical. Ex- cellent though many of these are, encouraging to youngsters to get involved in drama as they have, the move by Catholic Central High to bring Dylan Thomas' Under Milkwood to the Yates stage January 23 must be applauded. It's certainly a challenge but it proves the serious intent of high school drama students and re-enforces the wisdom of the drama program in our schools. And if you have a desire to tread the boards here's your opportunity. Playgoers will be casting their production of Arthur Miller's The Crucible shortly and a large cast will be required. Meanwhile you can make a good beginning to this most satisfying involvement by attending their workshop in improvisation, conducted by Dr. Gerry Thurston, tomorrow at 1 p.m. in the Public Library. Oscar presented to museum AMSTERDAM (Reuter) Actress Shelley Winters has presented the Oscar she won for her part in the film Diary of Anne Frank to the Amster- dam museum named after the Dutch girl who died in a Nazi concentration camp. Miss Frank's father, Otto Frank, was at the museum yesterday when Miss Winters handed over the trophy. He lives in Switzerland and came to Amsterdam for a meeting of the museum board. Miss Winters who played a Dutch housewife in the film in 1959 said she had wanted to present the Oscar to the museum for the last 15 years as homage to Anne Frank, but she had not found an oppor- tunity to come to Amsterdam.

School board apprehensive over system RED DEER (CP) The public school board, has ex- pressed apprehension over the, present system of electing all board members simultaneously. The board decided to ask the provincial education depart- ment to stagger elections so there would always be members of' the previous board on any new board. At present, elections are held every three years. In recommending the resolution, Superintendent G. H. Dawe said there is always the possibility that all in- cumbents could fail to win re- election. In such a case, he said, it would be difficult for, the rtew trustees to become' oriented and familiar with the problems and business of the board. 8 Hollywood Squares 09 Password ONews IB Truth or Consequences O News IB Let's Make A Deal ID News O News Q) News O Movin On Ot News a Hee Haw ID Truth or Consequences IB Swiss Family ID The Night Stalker B Petrocelli O Sanford Son- IB Toller Cranston CD Kung Fu O Chico 4 The Man B Bob Newhart O All in the Family ID Six Million Dollar Man a Rockford Files IB Movie: McCioud B M'A'S'H 0) Baretla 8 Mannix a Tommy Hunter B Manhunter a News a News IB Kojak ID Movie: Twist around The Clock 8 Tonight Show a National IB News B George Hamilton IB News a Movies: 1.
