Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 12, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Donald still shows off that old O'Connor talent By DICK KLEINER HOLLYWOOD, Calif. Don- aid O'Connor is just back from Las Vegas, where he was half a smash. He was a smash where he wanted to be a smash doing his performing thing. He was not a smash at the gambling tables and that's the way be wanted it. In his long career, he's been the gambling route at Vegas and he's been burned, so nowadays when he plays Silly City he's too smart for them. "I set myself he says. And, moreover, he sticks to the limit. It's not purely a matter of self-control but one of calculated foresightedness. What he does is send a reg- istered letter to all the hotel casinos, before he leaves home, and orders them not to give him credit. And they stick to H. He tests them. Be goes up to the cashier at one of the casinos and asks for credit. They check and find the let- ter on file and turn him down. "That he says, "I stay out of trouble there and stay out of debt There are a rat of acts that play Vegas who get into deep trouble. A few years ago, I talked to an act there that had been playing the tame hotel for IS to pay off their gambling debts." O'Connor has recovered weH from his heart attack of a year and a half ago. He looks great and says he feels fine, too. He reports that he can do anything he wants to do and bis act is still full of his great dancing. "I just cant leap around as much as I used he says. "As long as I stay on the around, I'm fine. But I can't jump off tiie ground and I can't lift my partners the way I used to." At 48, O'Connor Is a veteran of 47 years hi show business and maybe that explains his still-youthful appearance. He had a weight problem for awhile ballooning up to 200 pounds but he's shed 50 pounds and is back where be belongs. He has many things going. Perhaps the most exciting are various projects to bring back the talking mule he co-starred with in a bunch of very successful movies years ago. "Francis was ahead of his O'Connor says. "He was anti-establishment before that word was invented. I think a revival of those stories would be very successful and I'm working on a new script now.

The only thing he won't do is another TV variety series. He quit his successful show hi (he late '50s, when he real- ized k was just too tough. Last season, he did a guest shot with Julie Andrews and found her working the same arduous schedule he had abandoned. He had to work it, too, during that week he was with Julie. "I asked myself why I was doing he says, "and there was no sensible answer. So I won't do it again." (Newspaper Enterprise Asm.)
