Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 23, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, January 23, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 7 CBC to buy land VICTQRIA (CP) The city of Victoria has accepted a offer from the CBC for a parcel of city owned land, city manager Jim Bramley said Wednesday. He said city council has approved the CBC's proposal but the deal won't be conclud- ed until council formally has ratified the matter and the land has been surveyed. No details of the CBC's plans for the site were available from a Vancouver spokesman for the broad- casting authority, but uncon- firmed reports said it will be developed as both a television and radio station a project costing more than million. Victoria is the only provin- cial capital lacking a CBC station. Mayor Peter Pollen said Tuesday the city had received no indication of what type of building the CBC would erect, nor when construction would begin. The failure to do so was "rather typical" of the CBC's attitude, he said. STANDS EIGHTH Dallas is the eighth largest city in the United States.

By VINCENT CANBY New York Times Service NEW YORK Every year about this time Variety, the show business weekly, publishes a list naming each film that has earned or more in the United States and Canada during the previous calendar year. The Variety figures refer to the distributor's share of box office earnings, that is, the sum that the theatres have returned to the distributor after deducting exhibition ex- penses. They are probably more reliable than any figures by an independent source and are indispensable to anyone interested in the state of movies, to say nothing of the state of the American dream, which, depending on your point of view, was rather bad- ly damaged last summer or proved its viability (if dreams can be said to be The list of 1974 money makers, which appeared in the Jan. 8 issue, inevitably raises more questions than it answers. Can anyone really explain, for example, why "The have made more money than any other film last year and made that sum so quickly that in 12 months' time it became the fourth biggest money making film of all time? It follows only "The Godfather" "The Sound of Music" and "Gone With The Wind" Only "The Exorcist" came close to "The Sting" by earning in the same period. The year's third biggest money maker earned just un- der But why that big gap between the first two films and the ones that come next on the list? If you think you have a reasonable answer to that question, read on. The variety list of 1974 hits contains the titles of a number of films you obviously have heard of and a few I'm sure you haven't. For those of you who think you have an under- standing of the American public's taste, I've devised a modest test. In the following paragraphs I'm going to describe the 13 other top money making films of the year and ask you to name the film and give some idea of the amount of money it earned. The answers will be found at the bottom of the column. For those who guess 13 out of 13 (and have not cheated by reading drop everything, you're wanted in Hollywood. For those who fail completely. Don't be alarmed. You may be a movie critic. I'll start with the film that was 15th on the variety list, then the 14th and so on: 15. This is an adventure film that has a familiar story about international intrigue and treason in high places. The women in the movie are beautiful but they either are exceedingly dumb or have un- reliable characters. The men prefer to pal around with each other. 14. A movie suggested by television by recalling the joys of an earlier era. Non linear in form and as devoid of conventional narrative as a film by Robbie Grillet. United Artists' biggest hit of the year. 13. Two guys and a girl. The guys extort a large amount of, cash from a supermarket and' spend the rest of the movie in a getaway car, being pursued by cops and by the movie's director who, when he isn't photographing auto smash ups of various kinds, is photographing the chase from a helicopter. Peter Fonda is the star. 12. A grand motel sort of movie that gives star billing to a lot of actors who aren't, or at least haven't been for some time. Has to do with transportation. More truly representative of the Nixon years than any other film I can think of. 11. An old movie seen again. About being sincere and listening to your heart and turning the other cheek as long as you don't get too badly slapped. 10. Another old movie whose success had been an inspira- tion to more than one film- maker. A high class, elegant variation on the kind of buddy movies once played by Victor Mclaglen and Edmund Lowe. 9. A movie about a loner who fights to survive in the wilderness. It's a matter of having principles and being well armed. Virtually a one character film. 8. You may have seen this one before too: A gangster, a married lady and a jealous husband. It's most agreeable to buffs interested in how peo- ple get from one place to another and in what they wear. 7. A sequel to No. 11 same plot. Same actors. Same movie. Only much longer and worse. 6. A classic vision of the old west. Fading frontiers, cor- ruption, innocence, murder, cattle rape. 5. The year's most successful transportation movie and the worst, is also a sequel to an earlier film. It contains a large plug for the specific vehicle, which can virtually land itself. 4. A lesson in urban corrup- tion given with a right wing bias. If the system won't police itself, this man will police the system. Stars an American actor who was morii or less made in Italy. 3. Two con men out to bend the system their way. One is a man of action, the other a more contemplative sort.

The judge said that radio frequencies in Canadian air space are public property un- der the Broadcasting Act. When American stations put out signals on any frequency "they make use of the public property in the frequencies but they do not by so doing ac- quire any right either in the frequency or the signals they have generated on it." "And they have no right to have their signals received in Canada in'any form, whether altered or said Mr. Justice Thurlow. "Nor do they have any right to require that the licence of a Canadian broadcasting receiving undertaking con- form to their requirements or he added. Judge Thurlow made the comments in agreeing with two other Federal Court justices that the Canadian COMMUNITY SERVICES DEPARTMENT CITY OF LETHBRIDGE Public Swimming, Skating, and Museum Jin. Jin.

Rogers began deleting some commercials in 1972 after the CRTC issued a policy state- ment saying cable outlets could do so. But the CRTC said the cable companies should not them- selves sell replacement com- mercials. They should make arrangements with Canadian television stations to do so. Buffalo stations WGR, WBEN and WKBW threatened legal action when Rogers sub- stituted its own messages for their commercials. The CRTC then amended the Rogers licence approving public interest messages as substitutes for the commer- cials. In the Federal Court, the stations argued that the provinces alone had jurisdic- tion over cable television and that the federal commission had no right to make the amendment to the Rogers licence. They also argued that the deletions were infringements of the Copyright Act, the Trade Marks Act and the com- mon law. In the majority judgment, Mr. Justice Leo Ryan, quoting previous judgments, said Par- liament's authority over broadcasting extends to cable operations and that the CRTC had authority from Parlia- ment to make the order it did. He also ruled that the Inter- American Radio- communications Convention signed at Havana did not bar the deletion of the commer- cials. It said that the signing countries, including Canada, would not interfere with radio signals from other countries. "It seems clear that the interference referred to is technical interference with the receipt of the signal from the air, such as the generation of a competing signal of the same said Judge Ryan. "It also seems clear that the scope of the agreement is to agree that frequencies will not be so assigned or used in one country as to interfere with the reception in another country of signals generated on the same frequency in that said Judge Ryan. period is remote.
