Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 24, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, January 24, 1975 Figuring out TV scripts Harry O's biggest job DAVID JANSSEN New art centre to cost million OTTAWA (CP) A new municipal art centre costing more than million will be built east of Parliament Hill near the proposed new National Gallery, says Mayor Lorry Greenberg. The two acre site will be leased to the city by the federal government for a year, and Harold Shenkman, a local land developer, has contributed million to the construction fund. Total cost of the project cannot be determined until the city studies the space re- quired and the uses to which the new building will be put. The new building will be across Wellington Street and west of the present Public Archives and National Library building. The new National Gallery is to be built on the north side of" Wellington Street, east of the The LARGEST ASSORTMENT of imported styles in LETHBRIDGE archives and overlooking the Ottawa River. Mayor Greenberg said the two art galleries will comple- ment each other. The new civic art centre will concentrate on contemporary painting, sculpture and other visual arts, done by Ottawa and district artists. The National Gallery houses the country's collection of national and international art works. Mr. Shenkman said that in addition to his 'million cash contribution, he proposes giving the civic art centre his personal collection of African art, consisting of ceremonial masks, weapons and other ar- tifacts. He said he could not estimate its value, but would have it appraised. Mayor Greenberg said the city still has to work out the way in which the project will be financed. A national contest for architectural design will be held, and the mayor hopes the excavation for the new building would be started in the spring or early summer of 1976. SATURDAY DISCOUNT BOMBSHELLS PASCALL'S White Heather Candy By DICK KLEINER SAN DIEGO, Calif. (NBA) This has been a curious TV season but, then, TV seasons have all been curious lately. Maybe this one, however, is even more curious than usual. To beat Hollywood economics, a lot oi shows elected to film on location but many of those experiments have already failed Born Free sank in Africa, Paper Moon set in the Midwest and Nakia went under in New Mexico. And, here in San Diego, they were about to call it quits on Harry 0. The show hasn't been cancelled but the experi- ment of filming it all on loca- tion here has been axed. They were shooting their last episode here and they were about to fold their tents and move back north to Hollywood. They were shooting at a> beautiful spot, the Jamul Ranch, about 40 miles east of San Diego. Weather con- ditions and topography have combined to create an area here that is reminiscent of New England. The ranch house they were using was sprawling, large, evidently fairly modern. It belongs, David Janssen said, to some wealthy quarter horse people. (A quarter horse, the old gag has it, is one with two bits in his mouth.) David Janssen and Joanna Pettet were making tentative love in the ranchhouse playroom, a huge, sunny place decorated with deer and buf- falo heads and mounted fish. There were rifles stuck on the antlers. "The biggest private detec- tive work I do every Janssen said, "is trying to figure out our scripts." They finished one scene and director David Duke said, "How are the script writers coming NOT KIDDING He wasn't kidding. Behind his remark is one reason why the show has elected to cut out the location business and take itself back to the comfort and security of a Hollywood studio. David Janssen explained the situation on this show and why they were waiting around between scenes. "We had a meeting a few days he said, "and everybody agreed that a six page scene we have here need- ed to be rewritten.'We'l, we're ready to shoot that scene now and the new pages haven't gotten here yet. "Maybe if I was in Los Angeles I could find out who was responsible. Maybe not they're all pretty good at covering up. But at least up there I could put some pressure on the writers. Here I'm just stuck." So they wandered around the ranch, looking at the horses, drinking coffee, waiting for the words to come they would have to put on film. The decision already had Reg.

It would mean a few words of explana- tion in the script, a cast change (Henry Darrow, the San Diego policeman, would be replaced by Anthony Zerbe, as a Los Angeles policeman) but otherwise life for Janssen would go on as ever. "I don't think the locale really matters thai he said. "What really matters are the scripts. If we have good scripts, the setting can be anywhere. "And it really doesn't matter to me very much where I'm working. I am here in San Diego now, but I could be anywhere, for that matter. J work six days a week. And, on Sundays, I read the next week's script and maybe watch a, little football, that's all. So I could be in San Diego, or Los Angeles, or Peoria." Actually, however, the move northward is strictly an economic one. is an economic move these Janssen says. "Even going to the grocery The advantage of shooting on location, away from Hollywood, is that, a show is out of the jurisdiction of Hollywood's tough and demanding unions. But San Diego isn't far enough away to matter the city is still within the unions' aoornile limit. So they have the disadvantage of having to abide by union pay scales coupled with the disadvantage of having to pay travel costs and other location expenses. When companies use extras here, they not only have to pay them the Hollywood scale but they have to pay their tran- sportation from Hollywood, board room. HAVE PROBLEMS Besides, they have problems in San Diego. "This is a city of retired Janssen says, "and they seemed to resent us. Take the matter of the caterer. (On location, every company has a caterer to provide a hot lunch.) "We started out by asking a San Diego firm to do the job. But we couldn't find one that wanted it. So we brought in a Los Angeles outfit. It must have looked lucrati ,'e to somebody here because we began having trouble. "They trotted out an ancient law about it being illegal to prepare meals outdoors or something and forced pur caterer to quit. We pulled some wheels at City Hall and got back with a local caterer." So the San Diego experi- ment is over. The company has decided that it will make the move back to Los Angeles, where life is simpler. Maybe the locations and the backgrounds won't be as ex- otic or different but the economics will be a lot simpler. Former actress recalls old days NEW YORK (AP) "We shot jt in one day and got for Lillian Gish said Wednesday, recalling one of the movies she made with D. W. Griffith, the film pioneer regarded as the father of the movies. "Now that's a story in she said. It was in 1912 that Griffith- being honored at the Museum of Modern Art here on the 100th anniversary of his his film crew on 14th Street and cranked out An Unseen Enemy, the movie that helped catapult Miss Gish to stardom. "I was in the theatre at the Miss Gish, now 78, said. She had taken time away from a play, The Good Little Devil, to make the picture. The film's plot involved two young Blanche Sweet was Miss Gish's were trapped in an apartment by a criminal. But Miss Gish wanted to talk about something Griffith as the father of the movies. "At last we are giving some recognition to Miss Gish told the crowd of illuminaires that gathered in the museum's auditorium for the ceremony. Eagerly listening to her praise for Griffith were a room full of celebrities which included Mrs. John D. Rockefeller III, movie and stage stars Cyril Ritchard and Geraldine Page, and a host of other notables. Griffith is remembered for many films, including Birth of a Nation, Abraham Lincoln and Way Down East. Griffith's technique for developing closeup shots and fragmentation events in his films are regarded as revolutionary aha his methods are still used today. Miss Gish recently has been touring the United States pro- moting filmdom and Griffith's work.

Justice Sydney Fine said the inaccuracies spelled out by Cagney were insufficient to warrant the issuance of a tem- porary injunction. However, the court ruled that the publishers Stein and Day Publishers, Inc., of New York, and British journalist Michael Freedland, author of the dis- puted work should prepare for an early trial of Cagney's claims.
