Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 20, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta
Friday, July 20, 1971 THE UTHMIDGI HERALD IF you have the uneasy impres- sion that Whoop-Up Days have all the Impact of a Lily Tomlin hooray, take heart with Exhibit A. This outstanding showcase of Artiste and craftsmen of city and district at the Exhibition is more than worth the price of admission to the grounds. For the first time, there is enough qpace so congratulations to Andy or the member of the Exhibition Board who made the decision to be gener- ous to the arts. Kudos, too, to whoever was inspired to get Elaine Harrison to co-ordinate the show of arts and crafts. Here we have the work of weavers, painters, pot- ters, sculptors, silversmiths splendidly presented. It's the best show ever with, at last, space to do the job well. A suggestion now to the Ex- hibition Board. Hire Mrs. Harrison to design, direct and advise on all displays. And that includes the commercial dis- plays too. Give her a budget, a crew, invest'in good light- ing, buiH her risers and you'll really have a show. And more. Let's have a great display of homecrafts, as a tribute to the many women who worked over the years to make that a big community- involving part'of the fair. Lets have school art. Let's have flowers if you have to go out and solicit the community for posies. Let's have a show of amateur photographers. Let us see again the crops of this good country. Let's get the ani- mals into the barn. How many kids recognize the great smell of sweet hay and other atten- dant odours? Let's do something about that dull strip between the pavilion and the midway, it's a great place for the performing arts. Let's have a show from the Sir Alexander Gait Museum. Let's have some excitement on machinery row; this townie would like to see how things wgi. And why leave that great expanse of bare floor in the pa- vilion. I know the big dances are being held tonight and tom- orrow, but displays could have been mounted on dollies to be rolled out and in at will. Let's forget the area under the grandstand if the exhibi- tors can't get a better break. And that goes for grandstand shows too if you can't make them more visually attractive with backdrops and lighting. Let's get some action down- town. Local merchants would do well to visit Kalispell and see their Crazy-Daze. It's good for business and the costumed clerks are a great color note. Let's make it worthwhile everywhere to come to Leth- bridge for Fair days. Wen, you asked for sugges- tions so let's make the 1974 edition a great show. MOVIES: Although briefly. Sidney Poitier's second direct- ing stint has brought forth a black variation of Love Story in A Warm December.

MUSICALS: Channel s is doing its bit to combat the-sum- mer television doldrums with a Monday through Friday fes- tival of movie musicals slated for p.m. each evening. For openers, Monday will bring you the S'Wonderful music of George Gershwin, Gene Kelly, Leslie Caron and An American in Paris. Tuesday, Kelly's back with a very young Frank Sin- atra in the Comden-Green-Bem- stein hit of the forties On The Town. Not quite as impressive, but pleasant for a summer evening is the .Wednesday of- fering of I Love Melvin with Debbie Reynolds and Donald O'Connor. Thursday; the daz- zling Gwen Verdon and Damn Yankees. And Friday, what has become a classic, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers with Jane Powell and Howard Keel. Now if Kiss Me Kate and Singing in the Rain could have been in- cluded, that indeed would have been a TV week to remember! MEANWHILE: The Dick Men's production of Leonard Bernstein's West Side Story which hit the stage of the Yates August 21 for a five-day run is shaping up at a rate LABOR CLUB CORNER 2nd AVE. and 13th ST.

The box office has been opened at Leis- ters and early action will get you the choicest seats. MAYBE: You haven't yet caught the Paul Horn Show? Seen Wednesdays (Ch. 13) this half hour with flaUtist'Hprn, his group and guest stars is a pure summer delight. What it has going for it is a splendid simplicity. No joksters, no splash production numbers, just great music and sympa- thetic tensing. Occasionally Horn may be seen playing his flute in the Taj Mahal or ser- enading a whale, but mainly the action is with a very apprecia- tive audience in the intimacy of the studio. The guests are obviously chosen for their fine musicianship. Gloria Lor- ing, for example has in other presentations been a trifle plas- tic-edged. Her work with Horn this week showed her to be a very classy singer indeed. Next Wednesday Leon Bibb will be featured, and could ft be hoped that a future showcase could showcase the gorgeous Salome Jens?
