Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 16, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta A WARM WELCOME AWAITS YOU MARQUIS HOTEL The LetHbtidge Herald TELEVISION GUIDE Tags Drive In FOR PICKUP ORDERS Phone 328-5405 FRIDAY, JULY 16, 1971 17, TO FRIDAY, JULY 23, 1971 Yesterday's stars won't ivatch them Old films on TV By IVOR DAVIS HOLLYWOOD Pity the poor movie star who sees his follies immortalized in cellu- loid repeated relentlessly year after year on late-night TV shows. A random viewing of the late offerings: Myrna Loy swivel- ling her hips in assorted exotic films, draped with a python and flogging a young man tied to a rack in The Mask of Fu Mandiu yes, really, Myrna Loy; Tony Curtis begging a boon at the court of King Arthur hi standard Brooklynese in The Black Shield of Fal- worth; poor old Rock Hud- son trying to seduce Doris Day in all those sex sagas for the repressed. It's worse for" the ladies. The whole thing operates like a por- trait of Dorian Gray in reverse. Joan Blondell sits in her home, an ample, matronly fi- gure and contemplates herself on the tube. "That's she smiles, crinkling up her1 com- FRED ASTAIRE KATHARINE HEPBURN fm-tably lived-in face, "b i g boobs, tiny waist and all, the inevitable smart mouth of the typing pool. "Listen, I watch those movies I made after I was 40 and I'm damn proud of them. It takes guts for a woman to play J character role. You won't catch me turning them off."

"The whole thing's rather spooky and anyway all that lappened yesterday and I'm msy living for today." Joan Crawford, now 2 Pepsi Cola mandarin, says she never watches her old movies. 'I couldn't do my job today if I worried about what I did yesterday. Though I must ad- mit to a sneaking regard for Mildred Pierce." Leave it to Katharine Hep- burn who as usual succinctly manages to put into words what everyone else is trying to avoid thinking about. "There is a ccrtrfn she drawls in her Bryn Mawr voice, "in watching oneself rot If we are to believe the men, the chief emotion aroused in male stars seems to be a sort of self-loathing from the ex- tremes of Paul Newman who takes out ads in trade papers apologizing for The Silver Chal- ice to Edward G. Robinson who can't sit through Little Caesar. "I wasn't a very good actor then." Fred Astaii-e, whose old pic- tures are the target of a cur- rent wave of nostalgia says "If I happen to catch one of my old films I can never remem- ber which one it is anyway I'm not interested in what 1 was but what. I am." Happily among the cinematic actresses taking potshots al themselves there beams one unwavering light, one indomit- able figure who doesn't care if the years have taken their toll. She never misses one of her films when it's showing. she purrs in those unmistakable tones, "every one was a gem. Nobody could touch me. There'll never be an- other star like me." 0 else but Mae West? CONTROVERSIAL RE-RUN CFCN Lethbridge, Chan- nel 13 will re-telecast the contested history documentary, The Taming of the Canadian West, Sunday at 9-10 p.m. Based on the book by Frank Rasky, the one-hour show on the personal- ities and problems connected with the opening of the west was accused of racial discrimination and historical flaws by Man- itoba Indians. Their case was defeated in court. Canadian fashions featured on CBC Tom Gould, for the past two years executive producer of news, features and information programming for the CTV net- work, has been named director of the same departments. He replaces Don MacPherson who recently announced his res- ignation. Gould, born in 1931 in Edmon- ton, took his first job at 17 as a reporter with the Nanaimo Free Press. In subsequent years, he work- ed with a number of radio sta- tions, as well as with the Vic- toria Times, Vancouver Sun and United Press. He was appointed United Na- tions correspondent hi New York for the CBC in 1962 and in later years worked for the CBC as Far East correspondent and parliamentary reporter. He switched to the CTV a couple of years ago. Gould met a Vietnamese girl in Saigon whom he married in 1966 in Vancouver. They have a three-year-old son.

We all know about fashion or do we? Lapel width, cut, flares, cuffs, color and style, and of course, the mini- midi maxi controversy have preoccupied most of us at times. But there is certainly more to fashion in Canada than meets the casual eye. For example did you know Our Canadian fashions enjoy an exceptionally high reputa- tion in many countries, for their fine quality and finish? Last year's export sales to the U.S. alone totalled a whop- ping million? Fashion in Canada, long lag- ging far 'behind Paris and New York, has quickly caught up to, and in some ways even sur- passed, the leading world trend-setters? Fashion may be fickle, frivo- 'ous and fun, but it's a serious business for thousands of Cana- dians who earn their living from this fast growing na- tional industry. When on Monday. July 19 at 10 p.m., CJOC-TV presents an hour long color special. Fash- ion Canada '71, it will probe deeply into what seems to be a guttering, superficial busi- ness for a look at every part the industry, from the designer's table to the cut- ting room to a gala fashion show at Toronto's Queen Eliza- beth Theatre.
