Applause lasting 4% cftuites was given the centre orchestra under the direction of Mario Bernardi and the principal soloists. What flaws were de- tected in the production were in stage mechanics, things that can be fixed before the opera is repeated July and 14.

Here to sweat through a Na- tional Film Board production called The Heat Wave Lasted Four Days, the 42-year-old au- thor-star of The Rowdyman says he Is going to go on mak- ing films in Canada "no matter what." Between shots in the 100-de- gree-plus heat of an apartment set recently, Pinsent found the relative coolness of a bathroom, and the time to puzzle over the failure of his film to make money. Despite critics' opinion that it was the best Canadian film made, The Rowdyman has ended up with only the barest of chances to make back its 000 cost. Pinsent blames most of the disaster on distributors. Poor theatre locations, short runs, the inability to Ike up proper distribution in the United States; his list of complaints is long. NEED TO BEND The distributors, he says, "try to go in cheap and come out rich on a film that needs all the help it can get. I think ev- eryone needs to bend over a little and help things along." Pinsent wrote the script for The Rowdyman, played the title role and put up half the cost of the production. Since his-experience with The Rowdyman, Pinsent says, be has spent a great deal of time trying to understand what has to be done to make films suc- cessfully in Canada. The obvious solution, be says, is to go half-American and half Canadian, "but then we're back where we started with Cana- dians as second players." "If the talent in this country can just go to bed with the money in this country, maybe it can all come together. "Otherwise we're just going to be left on the sidelines with our dreams."
