She stars in an NBC special, 'Ann-Margaret Olsson, appear- ing in the time slot originally scheduled for Jack Benny's annual show.

Ph. 327-7244 Lethbridge By DICK KLEINER HOLLYWOOD (NBA) This is the sophomore year for Ely arid Edie Landau's American Film Theatre. Whether or not the program goes on to graduation depends largely on, how it does this year. Last year, its freshman year, was experimental. And, Landau says, it was a critical success but not a financial one. "We have not yet he says, "that subscription movie going is a viable finan- cial concept. The acceptance was good but not huge." There were eight in the first season's schedule, but only five this year, including "The Man In the Glass "The Maids" and "Jacques Brel." What's happened to last season's eight films? Landau says they've gone back into the vaults and that's where they'll stay. "All the pictures had four Landau says.

They are making JO films for children from ages 7 to 11. These are all new stories no classics, no fairy tales and Edie Landau says these will be sold via credit cards in theatres. It used to be that men's fashion was virtually dictated by Hollywood. No more. John Weitz, the New York expert whose latest book is "Man In says, flatly, "The film business has finished fashion." He believes that today the models most young American men follow are not actors but basketball and tennis players. "There's nobody on TV who is a model the public wants to he says. "Everybody on TV is a policeman." As for movies with fashionable figures "There's not been a single movie about a fashionable man since Gary Grant's Weitz says. Nevertheless, he admits that kids follow movie trends. He says that when "Easy Rider" came out, "thousands of kids transformed their hair- dos and started riding motor- cycles." But the public dresses like its heroes and today its heroes are football players. "They are the prime Weitz says. "They have no background but lots of money. They feel Secure the security of the crude."

Thirteen actresses, in- cluding Elizabeth Taylor, Glenda Jackson, Ingrid Bergman and Gena Rowlands, placed avertisements in the New York Times and Los Angeles Times last week ask- ing the academy board to reconsider. Then a group'of Hollywood directors, headed by The God- father director Francis Ford Coppola, took out a similar advertisement. KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) The Italian Film industry transformed American actors Charles Bronson and Clint Eastwood from a week bit-part players to superstars commanding a million dollars per picture. For Woody Strode, the in- ternational film market has not been that lucrative but the 63-year-old actor has carved out his own spot in the world of overseas action films and spaghetti westerns. Strode has fought, ridden, talked and punched his way through enough adventure stories to bank about a year for his efforts. A former professional wrestler, the 6-foot-4 Strode attended college at UCLA, played pro football in Canada for the Calgary Stampeders and wrestled professionally for nine years. Director John Ford gave Strode his first chance in films in 1958. "Mr. Ford told me, 'you know, Woody, it's pretty rough to make a star out of you, but I'm going to make you a character actor and you'll make some recalled Strode, in this area filming "Winterhawk." Strode's film career began in "Sergeant Rutledge." Then came "The Last "The man Who Shot Liberty "Seven "The "Rachel Cade" and others. The work was steady, the paycheques not huge. Then. Strode got into a British film with Sean Connery and Brigitte Bardot. "I was playing an Apache and I was riding .across the plains with a hundred gypsies they play Indians overseas." An Italian filmmaker caught Strode's act and offered him for one picture. "I moverl to Rome and real- ly started making money for the first Strode recalls. Strode, whose muscular body resembles that of a well-conditioned athlete in early middle-age, is proud that he is a physical actor who does 'all his own stunts. Citizens of the United States don't realize the extent of the world film market, Strode says. He says audiences in Italy, Germany, Hong Kong and Japan all dote on the myth of the American dream. Westerns are big. "In Ger- many they, have blue-eyed In- dians, they don't Strode says. To Strode, action in movies is more important than messages. He has played blacks, Chinese, Indians and other nationalities. He says there are some limitations on a black actor in the overseas market. "A black picture would not sell overseas. I cannot get 'whitey' overseas, if you know what I mean. I can be the bad guy and I can come in and steal the mansion and rip off the gold, they understand that." Strode, before coming to this country for finished an Italian picture with Ursula Andress. He plays the head of the mafia while the rest of the mob is white. "I was the boss, color meant nothing; I was a bad guy and that was all. "I don't think I could get that type of role in the United Strode says. Strode says the "white good guy image" of movies is an ego trip for the white male establishment. "When I'm in Italy they make me the bad guy. The Italians like to be good people. "But what the hell, I'm there to earn a dollar and I'd rather be a villain on the world market anyway." Strode keeps his physical tone by jogging, horseback riding and daily exercise. Before returning to Italy, he plans to film a western in the United States. He says the movie will be his first real starring role. Military bands on the way out OTTAWA (CP) A sour note has appeared in the Arm- ed Forces progress toward normality. As a cost-saving gesture, the regular force bands at Kingston, Ont., Gagetown, N.B., Calgary and Montreal, appear to be on the way out. Defence Minister James Richardson doesn't like the idea and he is looking for other ways to save money. But, under plans announced last week by J. A. Dextraze, chief of defence staff, the bands are gradually on the way out, at a saving of about million a year. The cut to five from nine bands means that there will be one regular forces band in each region of the country. There also are 66 reserve bands and 39 authorized volunteer those form- ed by members of the regular receive some financial assistance from the defence department. The five bands to disappear are the Air Transport Com- mand Band in Kingston, the Royal Canadian Regiment band in Gagetown, the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry band in Calgary and the Royal Cana- dian Artillery band in Montreal. Left will be the Canadian Forces Stadacona band in Halifax, La Musique du Royal 22e Regiment of Quebec City, the Canadian Forces central band in Ottawa, Training Command band in Winnipeg and the Canadian Forces Naden band in Equimalt, B.C. The band establishment will be reduced to 305 persons from 465. The defence depart- ment says that that does not mean all the bandsmen in the four bands being dropped will have to leave. All bandsmen in the country will be asked what they want to do and some, who have been in the forces for 25 years, are expected to take early retirement. Bandsmen also could seek other work in the forces. The elimination of the five bands is one of several moves the forces are expected to be making in the next while as they reduce establishment to fit a cut in man- power. The elimination will be gradual and won't come until all bandsmen are interviewed. paramount!
